Starwood lama maiden
Hi
I finished my Lama and had the oportunity to make maiden this week ...
Very impressed with the size and turbine : this is my first one !
So everything went well ; I love the turbine sound , it looks so real .
Windy day but the module worked well .
I have some more set-up to do but this was encouraging for a first flight
Here is a small video
Regards
Andre

Hi
I am using JR servos :
DS8911 : 25kg 0,19s for 60° (head)
DS8915 : 12Kg 0,09s for 60° (tail)
and
Bavarian demon HC3SX in large heli mode ( 2,2 m rotor ) with increased gains for both head and tail to 75 ( 55 default set-up ) and travels increased too ( 15% more)
Doing a very good job because the videos were done in windy conditions , some 40 km/h gusts .....
Next time I will try some 15 to 20 % expo but not sure it is good for optimizing the work of BD module .
Regards
Andre

I am thinking to put a 10+Kg servo for the tail instead of using a super fast, low torque servo like BLS276 etc. in my Vario Skycrane.

andre,
Looks great, congratulations! Envious of all your cool helis.

Chris.C,
I am using a Hitec HS-7940TH servo for the tail in my Starwood Electric Lama. 16kg-cm /.06sec at 7.4v (using a 2S LiFe pack). I also decided to use a slightly larger tail pushrod guide SS tubing to reduce friction if you haven't built it already.

Regards,
Rick

Thanks Rick.

Actually it is my friend who is building his Starwood Lama upto now he is going to test run the turbine.

I am working on the electronics for my Vario Skycrane hence my question. Turbine is running ok. I am going to put BLS272 to stand all the servo posts including the tail with.a 2S Lipo as power source.
