Remember how I said I was 99.9% sure it was the servo going bad. That .01 is a kicker!
I swaped out the servo from my Trex 600E and got the exact same thing. I went through the process and set my end points. I still only get about 1/4 inch of travel in either direction. Hmmmm

So now, I am looking at the micro beast and scratching my head. Could it be in the programing of the beast itself?? I am running a version of v2.XXXX. Any suggestions??

So the solution to my limited tail blade movement was increasing gyro gain. Yep! Fixed it right up.

So I was going through my flybared program to see what could carry over to the flybarless program on my DX7 when I accidentally coppied the flaybared over the flybarless. ARGH!! It wasn't even late and I wasn't tired. Just pushed the wrong button at the wrong time. So instead of making a lot of progress last night I reset the parameters in the Flybarless program. I think I missed a few, so I'll be going back and checking on those tonight.

getting closer!
Good catch Ted, I thought about it for awhile and couldn't come up with anything. Glad you got it sorted. You should be getting pretty good at doing the setup by now!

I've been running a S9254 on the tail. Since day one the servo has felt as if there was sand in it and it's been hanging up like it's about to die. Today I ordered a BLS251. I've heard great things about this servo. We'll see how it does. Should arrive tomorrow.

Glad you asked Pete.
I've been waiting for someone with experience with the Beast X to look over my heli before trying to hover it. Went to the flying field this afternoon. Got the heli looked over and got the thumbs up. Not only is the tail holding, but the flybarless head is way cool too! I hovered for a few minutes and then brought the heli back down. Very nice in deed.
HOWEVER! On spool up and spool down the heli did this little chicken dance. On the spool down it was bad enough to pop one of the links going to one of the main blad grips which in turn pulled/stipped the threads on the swash.
But it hovered way cool!!!

I don't know about other radikal owners, but I know I am contributing to keeping Century in business.

Chicken Dance...
That is not a good feeling.. but all you should need to do is increase your Deadband by one point.. the default is #2 and I change mine to #3 and it takes off and lands rock solid.. (mine are all electric) you might need to raise it even a bit higher, but try ONE number at a time...and a little expo in your tx on Ail and Elev say about 15-20% will also help here... but do the deadband first...

Good Luck,
Stan

Stan,

This was the first that I've really dealt with the "dead-band". Not too sold on it just yet. I really noticed it when taking off today. There was a few moments when it seemed like the heli wasn't responding to my inputs. At first I throttled down, but then decided to give it more stick and it lifted off. So yes, when the new swash comes in I'll look into adjusting the dead-band.

But still the few minutes that I had it up in the air was way cool!!!

Cant wait to get it up again and play around with the settings a little.

Thank you everyone for your help.

Ted

sounds like success!
I knew you would like it. Having your blade grips too tight can also induce vibes on spool up/down. Great job Ted!

I was told that I needed to tighten my blades to get rid of the chicken dance. Lol. Either way I'm waiting on parts.

try both.
Well I guess you can try to tighten and if that don't work go the other way. I just had mine calm down after I loosened them. Enjoy!

I have found there are times when one blade is tighter than the other one. By pulling both at the same time about two inches from grips, they should both give you the same resistance. Its a "feel" thing.

I've put in two tanks of fuel over the last couple of weeks. I enjoy the cooler temps that a cold front brings, but not so much the winds. Sunday, I decided to fly inspite of the wind. The beast x did an incredible job.
