hello from western okla. i just recently purchaced a 600n pro and found that setting it up to be harder than all of my other helis. the last 1 i set up was a venture 30 yeard ago. i have been flying for 15 + years and i have several elec helis. however this 600 is kicking my butt. for 1 i was only able to afford a dx6i and ar6200 rx. the heli has a govoner but obvously i cant use it. i do not have a pitch guage either. if there is any 1 out there that could lend a hand and help me set the corvs up. i would be gratefull. i have the th crv set up like the book says now after my first hover and havent tried it yet. but the first time i spooled it up and it had wicked head speed but no lift. i gave it some more and up it went. however head speed slowed way down and i had to bring it down. i have been out of the hobby for quite awhile and seemed to forget some things. can any 1 help me? thanks vettercr

with no gov.. 0-50-100 throttle curve is too much..

try 0-30-60 or 0-35-70...

if you want to stick with 0-50-100, richen ur tuning.. but u will waste fuel and produce lots of oil..

With the headspeed spike you mentioned, it could be that your pitch settings are too low in relation to your throttle curve. Adjust your pitch settings to increase pitch a bit over your throttle curve. Personally, I don't think you're doing yourself any favors with that DX6I. On a heli like a 600N, you would have been much better off grounding it until you could pick up something a litte bit more flexible.....at least a DX7. Anyways, it sounds like you won't be flying any crazy 3D anytime soon so, the fact that you aren't able to run a gov shouldn't be too much of an issue. The 0-50-100 throttle curve for idle-up should be fine. With that, you need to make sure your pitch is set properly to prevent the head overspeeding that you mentioned. I think you are going to have to sping for a pitch gauge my friend. It will make your life alot easier. You should be at 0 degrees at center stick in any flight mode. For normal mode set your throttle points to 0-50-90ish. Your pitch in normal mode should be around -2 degrees at low stick, 0 degrees at mid stick and about 12-13 degrees at high stick. I'm not sure how those numbers translate to your radio's values.

The 600N is actually a very simple heli to setup and fly. Setting up a brand new heli from scratch usually only takes the time it takes to get all the cyclic servos working in the same direction. Programming is a snap especially with the newer radios like the 9503 and many others. What's making your setup so difficult is the use of such a low end radio. You should change it out soon. Actually, I'm not positive, but i think the dx6i is only rated for park flyers not larger scale. Correct me if I'm wrong. Just a suggestion. But, good luck.. you'll have a great time with that heli once you get that setup squared away.

just my own experience.. 50% throttle opened on a tuned os50 hyper engine (1t 4-5clicks opened) with 0 pitch will give u around 2400rpm headspeed on non-governed trex 600n

yea im looking into a better tx at the moment. i use the dx6i in my other heli and acually fly 3d with it. it seems to be working out pretty good. however it lacks some things. what i really need it to figure out how to convert deg into percents. i have a piitch guage orderd now and im goung to set it up a bit better. by the way im using a tt .46 pro in the 600. i know it is a bit smaller than i like but well......thats what i have. it seams to have alot of power. thanks every 1 for the advice and keep it comming. vettercr@gmail.com

Hi Git,

I see your concern and I'm not saying you are wrong either, but my 600N's both run Hypers and they've been tached at 1750ish at 50 percent with the proper amount of drag from and pitch angle on the head. Acutally, for 3D with my gov's off, I run 60 on my t-curves and that still only gives me about 1800 something. Hyper engines sound like they're always sceaming anyways, but they do operate better at higher rpms as long as your needle vavles arn't too lean.

Corvettercr,

Oh, so you are running a Thuder Tiger .46Pro huh? Hey if it works use it. And if your Dx6i is doing it for you then use it til it burns up. I do think however, that you will notice a huge different when you go to a better Tx. Setup won't be so much of a hassle. In any case enjoy that 600N. It's really a great heli.
