That was Saturday, today was not bad. Got some flights in and tweaked on the GY750. Plan on going over my set up and then a write up to follow.

Thanks,
Chris

Soooooooooo.....

I have some time on my N5 and CGY750 now. I finally have it running so that I am happy with how it flies. This has taken me more time then expected because of several mistakes on my part and just not having the time to concentrate 100% on tuning it.

Here is my set up.
Radio 10C
YB 600 FBL
O.S.55 regulated
O.S. power boost pipe
Futaba BLS251 tail 5.1 voltage step down
Futaba BLS252 cyclic
Futaba 9650 throttle
Duralight regulator at 6V
Thunder power 3800 G6 battery
Switch glow
SAB 95 tail blades
R6108SB

Head shim .75
Head is at lowest height
3mm Lunsford turnbuckles
I have the longer balls on the swash for the main links to the head. Pics below.
Have mounted the sensor on a old N9 sensor plate this was to make sure it was nice and flat.

Radio EXPO -15 ALR\ELV -20 RUD

CGY750 settings

Rudder gain 56 3D setting
ALR gain 40
ELV gain 50

Swash flight mode 5
Swash ARF = ALR+72 ELV+76 PIT+40 This is a fast set up! But can be flown slow.

Governor setting on Moderate with 30% gain.
Head speeds 1750 1850 2000

I am getting very good flight times and am happy with the performance.

Thought I would add some notes on how the N5 flies with the CGY750. The easiest way to put it is! It's a FBL system that flies exactly like a flybared heli.

There have been a lot of people who have complained about the CGY750 not having piro optimizing. This is fine for me for now. I am taking the CGY750 for what it is and how it feels different from the other systems out there. Basically it was as if I removed the flybar and made the heli respond quicker keeping the same feel of the N5. You still feel very connected with the heli at all times.

We will see what the future holds for software updates to the CGY750. If there is a option to have piro optimizing in the future, I would definitely try it out to see how it feels. For now it is what it is and I still enjoy it.

Thanks,
Chris

I am going to be making some changes to my setup for further testing.

Tail blades is one, going to try YB 92mm.
Main blades is another, going to try normal YB600.
Going to change the pipe from a Power boost to a Hatori.
Plan on playing with the head shims once I change blades.

I will keep everyone posted of my findings.

Thanks,
Chris

I put a Hatori SAB55 pipe on order and some YB92mm tail blades, should be here by the weekend.

I went into the advanced menus on the CGY750 and zeroed out the expo on the tail, ALR, and ELV. Then added more in my radio.

Radio EXPO -25 ALR\ELV -23 RUD

I'm going to go back to the 1mm shim on the head once I get the pipe and tail blades on to see how it flies.

Thanks,
Chris

Good updates Chris, keep us updated on how things go!

Interesting to see how you find the Hatori SAB55 over the Powerboost pipe!, i'm running the SAB55 and have been tempted to try a Powerboost so interested to hear your views.

Also, how have you found the head after changing the short balls on the swash to the long balls for the links from the swash to the grips?

Cheers!

Changing the balls on the head has allowed me to adjust the ARF's a little different. I have not really noticed a difference in flying, more set up numbers then anything.

I also look forward to trying the new pipe. Just for your reference, I run Cool Power 30% and I'm basically close to sea level.

Thanks for watching,
Chris

Piro com,

I plan on trying this and reporting back once it's available for update. https://rc.runryder.com/t644987p1/

My pipe and tail blades will be here today. If the weather cooperates I hope to have some testing this weekend.

Thanks,
Chris

I have made 4 changes since I posted my set up above.

Changed pipe to a SAB55 Hatori
Changed tail blades to YB92mm
Changed expo from CGY750 to radio only
Changed head shim back to stock 1mm

The pipe has really allowed the motor to breath more. I'm only running 2000RPM on the head in idle up 2. I know I could go higher to get the motor more into the power band, but am happy with it at 2000.
You can tell the motor recovers much faster and is very happy with this pipe over the power boost pipe I had on there before. It does sound different that's for sure.

I was running SAB 95mm tail blades and have switch to the YB 92mm tail blades. This has also helped the motor out. I can tell when doing funnels the motor is much happier and the tail is not loading the drive system as much. The SAB's have a very thick airfoil the YB do not. I have the stock auto hub on my N5 and it has not locked up with the YB tail blades. I am planning on replacing the auto hub unit to the newer 14mm shimmed unit here soon. The tail blades have helped out in this area.

Changing the head shim back to 1mm over .75mm has given the heli more of a locked in feeling. I had done this before to get reed of a shake I was fighting. I have worked that out and changing this back is a plus. The CGY750/N5 is very locked in and happy.

One of the next things I plan to try is normal YB 600 blades. I have the FBL YB blades on the N5 right now. I was told to try the normal YB600 blades. I thought I had a set laying around, will have to look and see. If not I might barrow a friends to try out.

Hope this helps,
Chris

I'm planning on going to a Funfly this weekend. Hope to get some good time on the N5. I'll give a follow up here next week.

Thanks,

My N5 will be going flybarless very soon, but just on the engine, I'm running the Funtech B320 pipe on my 55 and the engine loves it - great consistent power and easy to tune with it.

Sure David,

Are you going to Othello? I will be heading out tomorrow. If not I can come up here soon and we can spend the day flying. Just let me know.

Thanks,

To wrap this up.

Over all I am happy with my final set up on the CGY750/N5. I look forward to trying the piro optimizing when it's available. The changes I stated above are where the heli is currently at.

It's going to be a great summer of flying. I look forward to the new E6/7 coming out and will be putting a CGY750 on that. It will be my N5's best friend when it's available.

If anyone has any questions feel free to contact me through PM.
Thanks,
Chris

I'm going to do some more posting now that the piro comp for the CGY750 is out. I was able to fly on it all day today and am very impressed.

Once I have played with most of the setting I will post some feedback. So far so good and the 'I' gain is freaking awesome to play with. If you have not done the software update yet, you need to.

Thanks,
Chris

I gain is the sleeper function of the software update. It adds greatly to the way the system track, esp on the pitch axis.
