ten years ago when my hawk was still nitro powered. 1St attempts at slingloading. Poor humvee. A longer line gave less swinging and now im able to pick up a load and drop it off.

There is an error when trying to play the video but, I did google rc heli sling loading and the first video was Emile and his Blackhawk slinging a Humvee lol. So a longer line is the ticket?

I didn't crash. I just ran out of airspeed, altitude, and ideas all at the same time!

yeah a pretty long line seem to work for me but it depends on the weight of the load too. here is my hawk slinging a vario chinook fuselage. you can imagine it caused a stir in the hook community

Yeah, I can see that causing a stir. This load weighs right at 1 lb. so I can see the longer line helping out.

marc28 Ron, do you spool up and lit off in HH mode? If so, try spool up in normal mode.
Mark, I believe the problem is that I am using Align 600 pro mechanics and even with the tail speed up modification it still is too slow. I had this problem with my other MD 500 as well with a 2 blade tail and I ended up dialing in I think about 60 on tail pre comp as the tail cant keep up with the collective torque of added main blades. Currently there is some vbar channel mapping issues trying to move the throttle hold and hook release switches on a DX-8.

Raptor 50 mechanics with century 5 bladed head has been a great combo for mine. May try sling loading with it next

How do you track your blades? I have a hard time seeing tracking tape. Do you have better method? Impressive flying helicopter and pilot! thanks ken

During set up of the vbar or any flybarless when setting 0 pitch @ mid stick, move a blade over the front and set it to 0. Move the next blade over the front and set to 0, repeat for all five. I am sure there are other methods.

I like to do it in a similar but slightly different way. I set my head gyro at 5 degrees at mid stick, not 0 degrees.
Then I do the same tail over the boom pitch change for each blade but again I do it at mid stick so I am looking for a consistent 5 or so degrees. It doesn't matter what the exact number is as long as each blade is the same. Then your blades should all be perfectly in track at hover, which is where you will be checking them in flight.

Yes, like Peter said. That way hovering at mid stick gives all of the + collective range for smooth collective management. It isn't hard to get used to.

Also make sure that the gyro program is set to the pitch setting adjusting area or in rate mode so that your gyros don't keep correcting ( best in the gyro pitch settings area as this locks the swash plate solid level and I believe most have that area ) ,, as you will just chase your self trying to get them all the same degrees .Larry C ----------Bergen R/C helicopters

I do the same with tracking. One blade at the time over the tail boom with a digital meter. They come out pretty close.
