because my head is spinning CCW
Did you hook up the electric motor leads backwards to get this to happen?

Actually no, it was done on purpose. From a scale perspective, both the A109 and 500D/E spin CCW and I was trying to simulate that too. My tail is also on the left and spinning downwards.

Some Photos ....

I wasn't implying that it was a mistake hooking up the motor leads backwards for I know that most full scale helis have the blades spin CCW.

But this is how you get CCW rotation, right? Does the motor work fine this way? Are the flight characteristics any different?

No problem.

Yes, this is usually the case. However, some ESC's have the function to reverse the Rotation by programming it. I prefer to programme via the ESC because the wires are colour coded and I just might forget which heli is wired which way.
Does the motor work fine this way?
So far so good, and I would assume so because some Heli's have their motors mounted right-way-up or up-side-down, so they do need to rotate either way.
Are the flight characteristics any different?
Being a complete newbie at flying (i.e. I can only hover), the main difference that I have experienced is that it drifts to the right instead of the left at the point of take off.

I had the same result with the GAUI follower. Massive vibes no matter how I tested it.
here is one I made from the t rex washout arms. just cut them and bolted them to the GAUI clamp.

Great idea, thanks for sharing.

I'll try this on my even-numbered blade system. Unfortunately can't be used for the odd-numbered blade system due to the placement of the odd-blade.

I tried to make one of these swash drivers today exactly like in the picture, but unfortunately my ball links are hitting the washout arms at the extremes of throw. I guess I'll be going back to the original Gaui follower for awhile.Avant RC

hmmm...I can see that this may be problem for a 2-blade FBL system. To counter the weight, maybe you can use 2 of the Gaui ones and 'layer' them one on top of the other.

I have 2 at home, I might try that to see if there is binding between the two.

Hahaha. This would be Gaui's dream. "Buy two crappy swash drivers to offset the problem generated by just one"...

That's it New Marketing Scheme - The Vibe-o-matic by Ronco. Order now and get a second one for twice the price to eliminate vibes...

Seriously, it would be interesting to see what a bench test would uncover, especially since you have 2...

hahaha ... I have two only because I have 2 FBL heli's. But due to impending vibrations, might be 2 wasted Followers. Stumbled onto this thread after the purchase.
