thought i would mess around with this...

heres my setup;

Two Futaba gy401's on Elevator and Aileron.

The head is a cut down mavrikk head block. with two 4mm set screws to help lock it to the main shaft.

the washout is a mavrikk metal hub. i drilled the holes all the way out and tapped them to 3mm. i used longer bolts, so when i tighten them down it locks the hub to the main shaft.

I flew this setup and it was all over the place, I need to do some serious fine tuning with the gyro settings.(anyone with some experience using this type of setup, i could use some baseline settings for the gyros)

After talking to a friend and looking at pictures of flybarless heads, I decided to mod my blade grips to 0 degress delta from the center of the main shaft.

I used two 20mm bolts and 10mm spacers to align the ball links to the center of the main shaft.

With the new grip mod I plan to get it back to the field and do some more flight testing.

Any help or Advise would be great!

nice one , what ya wanna do is stick all the servo horn balls as near to centre as poss , that will sure help , also if you run a reg thats adjustable ,make it 4.8v , if ya add some delay to the gyro`s it`ll help too , i took the 401 off the aileron on mine and used a 401 on the elevator only in the end on a low gain , i`ll try to find a link

thanks for the info. Why did you go with the single gyro instead of two?

i find the alieron easy to handle compaired to the elevator , but its all down to personnal taste i suppose . when i tried a rex 600 flybarless i used none at all , once the phasing was sorted , it felt better than the rappy did , must be a weight thing with the pendulum affect . look forward to hearing how you find it flys , ady

F is for Failure
flew it today, look pretty decent in a hover... a lot more stable than before... went out for some forward flight and it started a violent oscillation, i attempted to auto but it was far too out of control and i crashed

damage was not that bad, boom, canopy, blades.

i have a few videos, ill post later. i didnt get a video of the crash, though
