Hi Guys. Does anyone know where I can the user manual for this Gyro (going in a 450L).. You see on the Align site, they just have the Manual in bloody Chinese only (Not English), and I can't read Chinese (Gobble y gook). LOL.. But I did found one though.. Though its a poor quality one (Looks Scanned too me), so that one is no good to me... Plus what software is needed for it..

Yeah that's it.. Thanks so much.... Oh, I was wondering.. If I fit this to the unit. Will I still need a receiver. You see, I never did know what this satellite thing was for (that I have)...

Really ??? Yes, you need a receiver......

Did you look at the manual provided to you ??

Been there, done that and old enough to know better.....

Nope no manual came with it (or the Lemon one either).. Would you Recommend fitting it or not. That's all I ask, I have this one and a Lemon one too (Me not a Lemon though), Also what's the point of having a socket on the gyro for it then, as I know that it plugs into the receiver (For longer range I think), as I have a large (half built) 6 prop drone in my attic..I was gonna fit it into the drone (To Carrie drugs over into Canada (Has GPS fitted))LOL...

The manual I was referring to was for the FBL unit in the link above......

I had the 3G gyro a few years ago and I don't recall it having a port (s) for satellite receivers like the 3GX does.....I don't fly Spek so I wouldn't be looking for it anyways.

I looked at the manual provided in the link above and there is no mention of satellite rx's that I could see......

Also, don't think you can use a FBL unit on a drone.... you need a Flight Controller for that ....

Been there, done that and old enough to know better.....

I know.. I do have a flight controller (It's a Ardupilot Mega 2.6 that I've never used). But guess what... I just found out some great news.. The 450L (Which I have) is almost same heli as it's bigger brother.. The 470L Dominator, so I ordered the longer boom, boom braces, servo control rod, torque tube.. Plus the main rotor blades too (380mm)..The Tail blades are same size. All the rest is the same, as it's smaller brother. Lucky for me even the main gear (121 teeth), motor and 11t pinon gear and ESC are the same, landing skids too, Because I looked them all up.. Now I'll have the slightly bigger 470L Dominator (I must get the canopy too).. Instead of the 450L (I didn't know that there was a 470L Dominator)..

Oh, it's the 3GX that you can connect the satellite thing. I have the 3G one..

You are repeating what I said above ...... but I’m glad you understand that you need a receiver.....

What “port” in your 3G were you talking about that you were planning to plug the satellite into ??? Show me a picture, please ??

BTW, manuals for just about anything are available online if you bother to search for them !!

Your “newbiness” is still shining through brightly !!!

I know HEH.. But not completely... But I do know how to build Collective pitch heli's or any other heli for that matter.. Just getting them in the air will be the problem (or just have them as shelf queens)... Nothing wrong with that, as for the 470L.. I did notice on that heli.. It has a third bottom main bearing holder (Below the main gear), so since the frames are the same (Except for those 2 main bearing holder mounting holes on each side of the 470L frame).. I've bought just one frame at a cheap price (It is a Align one). I'll tape it to to my 450L one and use it as a "template'' That way, I can drill all four bearing mounting holes in the correct place.. Then I'll be able to fit that bottom main bearing holder to my 450L side frames.. Plus the 470L main shaft is longer too (It goes down past the main gear), so I had to get one.. Can't use the 450L one (To short in length)...

Also, the 470L head is the same as the 450L. How do I know that.. Well they both use the same bearing size in the main blade holders "4X8X3MM" (I've done my home work.. so I might come across as a newbie to you.. But working on heli's.. I know what I doing, and the cost of the conversion is worth it because it is just $80 for the parts needed, and end up with a larger heli (The 470L motor is included in the cost). I bet you would just go out and buy the 470L and not change a 450L to a 470L (if you had a 450L) which is a lot cheaper.. That's that way I think you see (Brain always ticking over).. You see I'm bit of a engineer (I have rebuild large 2-Stroke motor cycle engines in the past (380cc, 550cc and 750cc),as I owned them in the past (A blast from the past), and the 750cc (It's a water cooled 2 -Stroke).. That one would leave any Harley in the dust..Barry Sheen had a Suzuki GT750cc.. (The racing version of my bike), and at the Indy car racing track.. He had just changed in to sixth gear (Yep they have a six speed gearbox, and you can get up to 50mph in first gear too).. When (For some reason)..His back wheel locked up solid (At 160mph), and over the handle bars he went, and ended-up breaking most of the bones in his body (head over heals sliding down the track)...But in the end, it was Cancer that killed the poor guy (In his 50"s).. No dought is was because he breathed in all that 2-stroke smoke for the years he was racing (He did come first in some races to be a top motorbike racer).. But that's why the 750cc was fast, Because it's a big smoking 2-Stroke six speed motorbike, and handles better too (riding knee first is the way not feet first).. Also the way the Harley rider sits (Riding) on the bike is funny too.. Plus in a race.. The Harley rider would fall off in the end (It's the way he sits)..., so in a nutshell Harley motorcycles no good in the UK because of all the cornering that you'll have to do on the UK roads (You'll scrape the bottom off a Harley, or fall off at speed).. I once had a rear tire blowout cruising along at 85mph (Suzuki GT380cc 2-Stroke) and held on for dear life (Steering the bike was lost and I saw that light at the end of the tunnel because I was in a state of shock). You see it felt like all slow motion to me (Right after the blowout), and I thought that me and my brother was gonna end up being splattered all over the Motorway (Guts and all).. But I survived by by not crashing, so avoiding getting run over by all the cars/trucks that I had just overtaken (Happened on the M6 Motorway (Highway you say) going to Scotland 400 Miles away from home))..Though I nearly got a heart attack after it was over (I couldn't stand on my legs for a while).. Oh, my brother was on the back of my bike..

Yeah.. ALL manuals found.. Except for the 450L to 470L conversion, so I'll have to write that myself to all newbies (I might sell the kit) Wana buy one??, and don't worry, as I'm just blabbing on about none heli stuff...

yep your right. But the thing that I miss about the big old stroker (Bike weighed in at 520 pounds on a empty tank of gas) is once I got onto the motorway. I would open up the throttle on my bike (The bike has a water cooled 2-stroke triple engine (3 cylinders) and leave a nice blue haze for the cars behind me to drive in (Headlights on) LOL.. But poor them eh??, and guess what..Even to this day, all 2-Strokes (large and small) are not banned on the UK roads (But they are not built anymore).. Though if you look hard enough.. You can get nice restored one (That's what I did to my bike (took over a year to restore it), or get a low mileage one..

And now to get a good one.. Will cost you a way more when they were brand new at the bike shop (They cost 1200 pounds to buy in those days).. (Though now their second hand value has gone through the bloody roof).. Oh, I remember.. The bike had a separate oil tank, as the oil pump added the correct amount of 2-Stroke oil to the gas at the carb inlet, so No mixing was needed unless the pump was failing. Which really never happened anway (A cable from the throttle controlled it) Nice idea..

And sorry that this thread went of topic..I just wanted to share me thoughts about the good old days (SOB) No computers, cell phones or decent heli's (Only Nitro fixed pitch then.. But there was nice mechanical gyros for them). But who cared.. Just good old motorbikes (I pasted me motorbike test in 1976), and my Nitro fixed pitch heli (40 size) on Orange floats carried on the back seat of my motorbike to the park..Once at the park. I would put pump up those Orange Floats..

Here's a few vidos of a GT750cc.//

Watch at YouTube

He only got to fourth gear then slowed down

Watch at YouTube

(Mine was Blue in color)...

Watch at YouTube

Music was by Pop group Slade (Glan rock at it's best).. Just open up that throttle and hang on for dear life ( Notice The rider changed down to fourth gear (from fifth) and wizzed past that small car)), he wasn't going fast enough to use sixth gear (That's the overdrive gear for on the motorway when you want to cruse pass the ton mark.. (Police in pursuit sometimes, as no speed cameras in those days), but they couldn't catch you in those days (Just get off the Motorway at the next exit, and hide for a while, as that's what I used to do)..

Riding in town you never got out of third gear..

Yep, you can't beat a good old large 2-Stroke Bike..Because even today it's a fast bike, and still has great looks too (Not like the crap that's out now)...

Though his handle bars a bit to high for riding on the Motorway at speed (You need to be lower on the bike (Not riding up that high upright)), as the wind hitting you at full force will be tough on you. Especially if your going on a long trip on the Motorway..

Rear tyre was rubbing on the swinging arm and exploded.

60% of the time, it works every time!
