How much is to much.
Hello everybody. I have a question to ask. It may or may not be dumb. But what I need to know I how much Aile. and Elevator I should have. And how do I check it and, How do I cut it back. I was just messing with my TT X-50 with an all metal head and I read or heard it some where that all I am suppose to have is around 8 to 10 degree's of pitch on the Aile and elevator.I have my blade pitch set at 12+ and 12- I could probably go some more but it feels like every thing is binding up. But on the other issue I could really use some help. Thanks Mike.

I run 13 degrees +/- for collective pitch on my X50. I also run 11 degress +/- of cyclic pitch for aileron and elevator.

To check your aileron and elevator pitch put a pitch gauge on a blade and center the pitch/throttle stick so the blades are at zero degrees of pitch. Zero your pitch gauge. Then with the blades and head rotated perpendicular to the air-frame run your elevator stick to the full forward and back elevator. At each limit check what your pitch gauge says. This will be your elevator pitch range. Now rotate the head 90 degrees and perform the same operation but instead run just the aileron control to find the pitch limits.

If you are FBL then there is usually a "rate mode" you need to put your FBL controller into before you attempt the above or you will get the gyro messing up your reading. And changing the end points is specific to your FBL controller as well, so adjusting the cyclic pitch is something you'll do based on FBL unit instructions. If you have a flybar then adjusting the elevator and aileron endpoints in the radio usually does the trick for changing the cyclic pitch to what you want.

Hope this helps, I have zero bind on my X50 and it flies amazingly well behaved. Sometimes a FBL unit will give a lot more static cyclic pitch than it will in flight when it is not in rate mode, sometimes this looks like "binding".

Lets us know what you find,

Wow 11 degrees of cyclic pitch,that must a great set up,i have mine 8 degrees at the most anymore its just going to overload the engine.

I've run 11 on both my Redline 53 engine and now this current YS56SR engine. The only place I really have ever seen any overload on the engine and bog produced is if I'm in a hard funnel tail down and I feed in enough aileron for an aileron roll in the funnel. This will produce a noticeable bog for sure. Other than that it responds very crisply and fast for the other maneuvers I require it for.Futaba Factory Team
