to begin with when i throttle up seems

th curves 1-16 2-35 3-50 4-68 5-100
idl-1 1- 90 2-75 3-75 4-75 5-100

throttle seems to not respond as fast as it use to .

when i throttle up seems like the motor responds a little late.

its opened 2 3/4 turns .

the temperature was 232degrees f after 5 minutes is this to hot ?

if Helli osaltes during hover i imagine i just may need to up
th curve from 2-35 to no more then 40 ?

seems to be running rich but id like it richer .

your thoughts please.

and i got a new true hd 1080p camera so th details look a bit better

should have flown this already but couple of reasons.
one is because i just went ahead and bought some glx 50 blades and quick uk boom.

Watch at YouTube

has anyone tried these glx 3d blades ? were 96 dollars but owner gave
me a deal for 65 bucks one time only.

I'd say 232 degrees F is a little hot...

Yes, try bumping up position 2 on your curve a little.

The idle 1 curve seems rather high around the hover - any idea what headspeed that's giving you?

Hi,
That is a nice quality video. Am i right in thinking you are running a constant 0 degrees pitch for the test?.
If so, you cannot set your needles like this as there is not the correct load on the engine.
The only real way is to do full power climb outs and observe what power the motor is producing and to see whether it is hanging when you close the throttle at the top of the climb.
Also by the sound of it, the motor is overspeeding at times and is certainly turning at more than 1750 rpm. It may be worth checking the function of the governor.

omg very good advice and i understand , i have a tach and guess ill have to wait til i get to the field to better tune the motor.

but the high temp 232f degrees i should richin the motor a bit as well ?

You can only realy start thinking about temps when you have it flying and at the correct headspeed unfortunately.

http://www.raptortechnique.com will answer ALL your questions about a raptor. It is probably the MOST informative website for your raptor.

It will show you everything from proper throttle and pitch curves to basic repairs. I highly recommend it for you.

Read and learn EVERYTHING he has to say about the raptor.
