The idle up curve is 100-75-55-75-100

Sound ok?

I don't fly any 3D yet...This is about as crazy as it gets and I still run it super rich at 190 degrees.

If a pissed off 90 size nitro goes wide open...I WILL NOT be letting go of it to get the radio....Just pinch the exhaust or pull the fuel line.

It's not like an electric...it has parts on the heli that will stop it safer than going for the radio.

I have caused myself more problems by dragging the radio around than by leaving it somewhere safe and flat.

Thanks for the insight on RPMs.

It didn't sound too bad, I always worried about over reving with no limiter or govenor.

I have no issue with the radio on the toolbox.

I went to the field one day by myself in December. I started up my Evo 50 and had it idling with my radio on my neck strap. I got a call and bent down with my face next to the blades. Well just my luck I hit the idle up switch on the edge of the table. Thank my lucky stars that the motor revved a little and died during transition to full throttle.

I learned a few things that day

Ditto.lol...

Even in THIS video...Listen....When I went back to get the radio,I bumped the throttle...Luckily,the heli was 30 feet away

I don't like the two to be close to each other.

If it was electric and spun up...the radio would probably be inside the kill zone under the blades.

The radio won't do anything on its own sitting over there all alone.

It sounds good to me. But I have no clue. Just want to say nice heli and nice flying.

Jimmy, If it looks like a heli I like it.

Once it is broken in and you have settled on the needle setting, you can adjust the TC with a tach.

Do one on the ground at zero pitch for the 50%.

Then hover and adjust the 75% and inverted for 25%. You would expect mirror image of 75 will work for the 25%. But, it often is much different requiring you to set it at inverted hover.

You can leave both ends at 100.

For most flying except smacking works. During smacking, your throttle goes wide open and as your stop the heli and settle on a hover, head speed will race and go to over speed.

This is because gov typically close the carb to idle at this point but TC will keep it at your hover setting.

What I like about no gov is the sound I can make on a high short approach. It sounds real with the reduction of power and the approach with the soun dof the blades. I can't stand the long continuous unwavering drone a nitro engine makes on the gov. I own a number of govs but always end up turning them off. I'm a sport flyer and not really even aspiring to do smack. I don't like that look. Curves and throttle management work great for me. Loops, rolls, inverted flight coordinated flight and combinations thereof keep me happy.

Don't forget your cyclic to throttle and rudder to throttle mixes.

I don't use them and manage to keep the tail coordinated. I enjoy the challenge. It's a big reason why I have resisted flybarless to this point. It just seems like cheating. I'll get over it.

cyclic/rudder to throttle mix is to maintain RPM under load other than the pure pitch. It is much similar to putting the throttle curve for pitch but applied in a different way.

Yes, I know this. I don't use it. I drew my cheating line in the sand at heading hold gyro. I enjoy the pureness of flights with my nitro powered, throttle curved, heading held, flybarred, machine. It's a flawed love, but it's mine.
