My guess is that the device moving up and down is going to make the collective in the pilot's hand move.

'Twas Maiden Day today.........

Big thanks to Mark "Mr. Chinook" for coming out and filming and providing much needed moral support.

Please forgive the redneck ballast on the skids. Ballasted the model to weigh 45lbs which I think will be close to finished weight. Using 6000mAh packs and taking them to 75% capacity yielded 5 min flights, so I will need to get larger capacity packs. Head speed was 942rpm. Might be able to get it a tad lower, but it seemed relatively happy at that speed. Definitely needs more tuning, she flies like she is way tail heavy, but it is pretty nose heavy so not real sure what is going on there. But no weird noises, no really bad tendencies, so I am happy and now we can get on with detailing and finishing!

Thanks friends!

Mike, tail drive seemed to work very nicely. No weird sounds, it doesnt have that wha-wha-wha sound you normally hear from the cable winding up and unwinding, so I am pretty happy with it.

Did one quick test again this morning and lowered the head speed from 942 down to 822. Gained a full minute of flight time!! Still had good recovery power at that head speed. Might be able to get it down around 800rpm,....that would be pretty cool!

Just doesnt fly very well. Me and big heavy birds just dont seem to like each other. At IRCHA next year, I need to beg the Bavarian guys (JC Zankle) to spend some quality time with me and the Cobra and Airwolf and help me understand the tuning parameters and how to settle the heli's down, as I am admittedly kinda lost.

to me.. that is the most understood part of the scale arena. I have to have the guys from Futaba help me tune mine. I mean I get the basics but I am just not great at that.

Most want the machine to be all hot.. or just dont understand the flight style I need.

JC however GETS IT and gets it well.. Nick has been a great help to me as well.

When you get it close.. please let others know what you did to get the machine where you want it.

Looking Good.....
Steve, as usual, you are going to have a great looking/flying heli!!
No doubt you will get the stabi system under control.. just a note, the elevator always seems to be the most sensitive control.. don't forget that you can use expo on it...looking forward to seeing it up close next season..
