WOO HOO its flying
no shimmy's no shakes no wicked oscillations it flew great.
Thank you Rodan for the settings that you sent me I used them as a baseline for it and it worked out great!!
I did make a few changes to the whole system however and part of that was a new DX7 spectrum radio, I had a devil of a time getting my futaba T6EX to work right with the sk360, it was like it just did not want to move the servos the right way at the right time, and was just an all around bear to get them working together, and since I had a few other glitches with it lately one of which was a tendency to kick the throttle on when I moved the rudder even if it was pulled back all the way so I knew it was not moving forward
so I bought the new DX7. It hooked into the sk360 like they were meant for each other, it took 15 min. to set it up and get my collective and throttle programed. I also lowered the head speed to about 1700, as recommended by Wrenflyer "thank you sir" that helped a lot. I also am running 550 main blades now, my first flight with them was actually the last one that lasted 10 sec. and I still have 105's on my tail, with a 4 blade head. it has real good tail authority now and no problems at all there I think the lowed speed helped there as well.
I do need to balance all the blades. that is next, they were balanced in a most basic way and now i will take the time to do it a little finer this time also it needs a little more on the swash phasing its at -55 now and i think -60 to-65 will be better and my travel is at +-80% and i will probably raise that slowly as well.
and my blade tracking is off ever so slightly.
even with those items needing to be done it is flying better today then it has since it was a stock trex600 new out of the box. It will need some tweaking on the bell and hiller settings but that will happen in time as I get more familiar with it and how it handles.
THANK YOU ALL, Rodan, Copter doctor, Wrenflyer, Ea01bg, and a few others. I could not have gotten it worked out without all of your great assistance and suggestions. any other ideas are always welcome
change is easy, progress that's hard
