Hello,
Finishing setup on this combo, and was wondering what kind of pitch range do you use on yours? I'm setting it up like a normal R60 unless you think I should do differently

Thanks!
Deck

p.s. Anyone know how to get an aux channel assigned to a certain switch on a Futaba 8fg? I'm trying to get the Curtek light set up to an aux channel on the 8fg for the landing light on/off.

I'm doing the same build right now. I usually set up my scale with much less negative pitch, around -5 but I'm wanting to fly my md more scale for this specific heli which is very maneuverable and i'll probably run aroun +10 -8. Who knows, this one may end up inverted. Can't help with your switch assignment. It's fairly easy on my 9303 though. Good luck with your heli.

fly it like you stole it

Any recomendations on headspeed? Honestly I have mine set up like a normal heli right now, but I know that's not quite right It just has an OS60sz in it right now, and no governor.

I plan on running mine around 1500 but I haven't flown the 60 at that headspeed yet to test her out. I'll be running the same engine as you. I want to fly the md like the real ones (very maneuverable) so i'm not going to shoot for an ultra low headspeed. I have seen the vario fuselage in a gasser version flying with a very, very, low headspeed and it flew great so I think you have a lot of room for tampering on the HS.
