Hi

I have just got my Rave ENV flying and started doing some 3d stuff with it what i have foud is that when doing a right hand roll to inverted it pitches its nose up ( inverted towards the skids ) when applying negative pitch it also shows this when doing inverted autos but when rolling back to upright it dipps its nose. I have checked the swashplate and it is travelling level thru out its full travel and i have no mixing. my FC gain is at 45 if i go to 48 the model wags its nose up and down like to much gain on a tail gyro.

Also i have set up the governor on a 3 way switch, off, 1650 & 1900 the red dot in the software goes green when the magnet passes over the sensor but it does not engage in flight ?? any ideas.

Cheers

Your gain sounds low. If you are running a relatively low head speed and low gain I suspect that may be part of it. Also what blades. I'm running a gain of 63 around 1930+ HS and it works great.

Is this the backplate sensor or the sensor that came with the TG? The backplate sensor does not need to touch the backplate if that one. I assume this is a TG unit? If it does not engage in flight, is the headspeed low at this point looking at the throttle curve?

also check your cg, the rave has a pretty big tank, and being that the total g is a very light weight set up you could be tail heavy wich affects rolls. fc is low, how far out are you on the servo arms?
i have mine at set at 65. at the last funfly curtis told me to put -5 on flip and roll in the total g program, this cleaned up the rolls and flips nicely.

Can you use a backplate sensor with the Total G? If so I have one from my Spektrum 7100R I want to use

Yes you can, it works just fine.

Build it, fly it, crash it. Repeat as often as needed.
