Got my ElyQ comp flying and with the help of Callum I've got the cyclock working ok, still some tweaking to do.

The ElyQ still feels a little sedate so am wondering should I start altering the programmable head, only problem is I have no idea were to start, never had a programmable head before.

Are there any set up guides out there or can someone take the time to explain?

Thanks,

Leigh.

Hi There!

What Cyclic Pitch are you running? I was running 12 Degree's and it was fast! I have however moved the flybar linkages to the inner hole but i have not yet test flew it (Will be insane!)

Its Pretty simple, you can either try the metal linkages and moving it closer the head block, or you can try with the flybar linkages first.

I would try the Flybar linkages first. Unscrew the ball and screw it into the next one beside it on both blades, Connect the linkage and your done!

Moving the links closer to the head block will make it more faster. While moving the linkages away from the headblock will make it more slow and stable.

Have Fun!

Regards
Callum

Also Play around with the different positions and see what you like!

Cheers Callum,

Just double checked as I upped the cyclock at the field today.

Using the the head button as the horizontal to line the pitch gauge on I'm reading 10 deg on cyclic. (Collective is at 0 deg when checking)

I assume this is the correct way to check as the flybar moves with cyclic?

When you say to moving the link towards the head makes it quicker, is that quicker to respond?

What is the result if you move the plastic links on the flybar to the outer balls?

Leigh.

Hi There!

You will want to keep your flybar centered with the pitch gauge for an accurate reading.

Yes, if you move the linkages closer to the head block it will be a lot quicker to respond and will make the model roll/flip rate higher so you may need to tone down your swashmix or if your using a Cyclock then your Aileron and Elevator gains.

As regards to moving the ball links out that would make the model more stable and slower. By default in the ElyQ instructions they want you to run the small flybar linkage on the outside.

Have a play, see what you like, Run the Flybar linkages on the inside and leave the metal links where they are, or have both on the inner or outter hole.

On the metal linkages there are ball positions above and below but im unsure what the results will cause. By the looks of it it will adjust the blade pitch and mixing lever angle.

Hope this helps

Regards
Callum

Thanks again Callum,

I was flying the ElyQ all day yesterday, the more i'm flying and tweaking it the more i'm liking it, really is a nice heli.

Just want to balance the fan and remove some of the tank rubber as its like a whirl pool in the tank!

Bring on the torque tube!!

Leigh.

Glad your really enjoying the Vision 50 Competition!

Keep tweaking and you will get your perfect setup! - Just the way you like it

I notice your in England, are you going to any events this year? We could meet up for a fly!

I'm near Chester.

I will be going to Weston park, mainly as they have the heli comp this year, will you be taking part?

I think thats the only place i'm going this year, most heli events are too far away.

Yesterday i put theball links on the outer ball on the flybar.
The heli felt a little bit more stable but not as fast on the cyclics as on the inner balls.
I like the setup on the outer balls more, because the heli is just a little bit more calm, but still does very fast flips...awsome...
You can change the behavior of the heli just as you like it, without loosing too much speed on cyclics...

It is worth a try..

Too badm that my tail rotor servo quit....the poti is broken i think...but i was able to do a safe auto ;-)

If you want it to be stable, put the new Swash plate on it. It is super stable with the New swash.

Hope this helps

I think we would all love to try the new swash.
I still don't see it available in any of the US shops.
I hope the supply chain strengthens soon. All the new stuff makes me giddy when I know it is coming. The wait looks to be at least a month after it shows on the ElyQ web site before things hit the US stores.

managed to sneak out of work early with the intentions of flying the ElyQ and moving the links. Got one flight in, nothing wild, just circuits and stall turns etc.

Changed the link positions for the next flight, spooled her up and I could hear a clicking.............the main gear is missing chunks, don't know when it happened or how

Going to order a new gear and some new Quick uk links to replace the stock ones, and a base plate if I can find one.
