Hello all Microbeast fans.

Version 3.0.8 of the software is available.

I'm not sure if this is old news.

I've already updated ours. But, I do not think anyone posted.
So, V3.0.0 could have been partially responsible for the crazy tail behavior with initial update. But does not explain how it was resolved when flashed again.

ive been running the 3.0.8 for a while now and one of the main changes that i can see is the issues of elevator "bobbles" on hard stops seems to have been resolved, although not everyone with the 3.0 was getting that.

The only issue I am having with my BeastX 3.0 is if I am trying to do a fast pirouette sideways across the field. It is jerky--definitely not an even controlled rate of revolution. Essentially, the tail rotates faster when it is moving downwind and slower when the tail is moving upwind.

yes i noticed that you cant have a fast tail without it going into a blur speed. I like a fast tail but had to turn it down below my prefered rate to stop the blur piro.

I'm talking more about a "whipping" behavior. If I am traveling straight across the field from left to right at a moderate pace and then give rudder so that it begins to pirouette across the field, when the tail is rotating in the upwind direction is goes slower than when it is rotating in the downwind direction. This creates a jerky uneven "whipping" effect.

Hey, it might be a tail gain issue. I didn't think about that. Thanks for the suggestion.

This is my first BeastX and so I am not extremely familiar with it, but I left the tail gain (parameter D) in the middle (red) position and then adjusted the gain in my transmitter to about 90. I wonder if the tail gain is a little bit too high causing this problem? That would make sense. I didn't think to check that, but I will next time I fly it.

there is another adjustment other then gain that controls tail consistancy. I dont remember what it was called but its in the manual.

The third dial does something with the tail, but I haven't really played with it yet.

90?! holy cow!!!

my parameter menu d are all set to solid red (medium) and rudder gain in the radio (9303) is around 45 (using atv for my gain).

i would lower it down to about 50 and try again. also, for the control behaviour menu b, do you have that set to any of the presets or to "transmitter". also make sure in the atv that rudder it not set past 100% as that can cause it to act weird too.

pot 3 is tail dynamic and is basically just for tail stopping and how hard it stops. if you get into a hover in id1 and do piros left/right, that pot tells the tail how hard to stop. if the pot is set too high, when you stop a piro, the tail will "bounce back" and if its too low, the tail will feel sluggish on the stop.

Ok, so the third pot controls the "hardness" of the stop. That makes sense.

As for control behavior on the cyclic, I have it on the extreme (flashing blue) setting. Anything less than that and it was too "slow" for my liking.

I had to increase the tail ATV to about 120% because with anything less the rotation rate was just way, way too slow.

Hmm. Sounds like I might have things pretty wacked out.

Let me try and lower the tail gain first. I think my "90" might be different from your "50", but since this is my first BeastX I am still struggling to understand how everything works. Oh, and for setting my tail gain in my transmitter, I adjusted the subtrim on channel 5. Is that the right way to do it? Because someone else said something about adjusting the ATV, but I don't really see how that would work.

ATV's over 113% would cause my tail to pinwheel. Anyone know how to get a faster tail and not pinwheel? Seems like a pretty low value to get to the pinwheel mode?????

How do you differentiate a "pinwheel" from a regular pirouette? It is my understanding that in a pinwheel the tail gyro turns off? Is this right?

yes, pot 3 is the hardness of how the tail stops.

i might think that with the control behaviour set to the extreme setting and then taking the tail atv to 120%, your going into "freespin" on the tail and the mb is no longer controlling the piro rate.

i run control behaviour to the transmitter setting (this way you can change the feel in the radio, much better in my opinion because you can change the way expo and such for each control input seperately, ie, aileron, elevator and rudder). so with it set to the transmitter setting, i run 20% expo on all 3. and all 3 are set to 100% atv as well.

this is how i have all my helis set too, 50's and 90's.

as for setting the tail gain in the radio, dont use ch5 (gear) subtrim, use the atv menu for ch5 (gear). if your adjusting the subtrim for ch5, your not changing the gain. if you look at ch5 atv, its probably at 100% both ways right? if so, then your running 100% gain on the rudder right now. by using the ch5 atv, you are able to set the hh mode and rate mode gains.
