Beginner Nitro Engine Tuning Video
With nitro making a come back I thought I would put together a straight basic beginner video. There's a few basic methods shown I use and will get you in the ballpark. There's no exact perfect way to tune as everyone's flying style and setup varies. There's so many factors to take into account so I wanted to break it down basic and some basic manuevers pretty much everyone can do. The motor in video has countless gallons on it and is due for a rebuild but as you will see the heli still performs great. You don't need every bit of power to get a good flying heli. Only wrong way to tune is overheat and blow your motor. Always tune rich to lean. I'm not a perfect motor expert this is just a few methods. As you progress you will find your own methods that work for you. I will do another video going into detail about setups glow plugs fuel and correctly shimming and also tuning for max performance while flying advanced manuevers. Hope you guys enjoy. What I didn't mention was the 5 second rule on backplate. With the majority of motors now being regulated it doesn't really work. Open in youtube for best quality.

Nice video and a good idea. Maybe explain what you mean by rich and lean though and which way to turn the needles for richer or leaner and how to identify which needle is which.

Also your motor looks and sounds a little lean on the top end and rich on the mid. I think with that head speed your pretty much on the high end of the mid just hovering, maybe hover for a couple of minutes in IU and temp it to get a better idea of where the mid is at. There is also quite a noticeable change in sound from unloaded to loaded and back during maneuvers which can indicate a lean high, rich mid tune.
60% of the time, it works every time!

The clunk must rest on tank floor...

Good video, good of you to take the time making it, I also think a little lean on the high end, also after landing if there is no temp check, holding your finger on the backplate will give you an idea how hot the motor is running,is that the Lynx fuel magnet which does float?

Nice idea.

My only comment is that running those sorts of head speeds in a beginners tuning video isn’t so helpful. This is far more useful for someone who is already flying 3d.

Just my 2 cents
