Cyclic Rings
Does any one know if these are still available as can't find any where .
I think it would smooth out my piro flips as I can't get them consistent :/(

If you want more consistent pirouetting flip
- slow your rudder speed
- perhaps to 3 seconds per revolution
- stirs don't have to be completely round, varies per pilot
- focus on more elevator to flip heli than inputs to flatten the heli

Hope this helps

Back when they first appeared I remember someone had a write up on how to make your own ..... you would have to search around to find it ....

The "fad" never went anywhere quickly....

I certainly wouldn't call it a fad. The primary reason they came into existence was to address the issue of the servos binding in the extreme corners of cyclic. This was at a time when Flybars were king and maximizing swash throw was often required for fast cyclic. The servos would not bind in full pitch or full roll- but they would bind at full pitch and roll.

Physical cyclic rings largely went away when electronic cyclic rings came into existence. Most modern heli radio eliminate the binding problem and the need to physically limit stick travel in the "corners". But cyclic rings are now part of almost every heli setup.

I suppose the "fad" of taping a plastic ring you your radio went away. In that sense you are completely correct. Cyclic rings, however, are now ubiquitous.

That's exactly what I was referring to....I believe that is what the OP was looking for.....the plastic thingy !

And electronic cyclic rings are better looking.....

I prefer to fit the cyclic ring though than set it up on the radio , as other wise I may be pushing the sticks into that area and not doing any thing .
Thanks for replies :-)
