I am running G3.5 on Vista, it's working great but I did have a small issue re-registering and eventually got it to work. First thing you need to do is make sure your user account on Vista has full administrator access. Also, you might get an error that will point to a file that is not found or not modifiable. I had a backup of my old windows directory which included all the old program files, so i searched for the file that was keeping G3 from allowing me to register and copied from backup to the directory that it was trying to access it from.

Unfortunately I did not keep notes on the exact procedure and exact file name but I'm sure Travis and the guys at Knife Edge will soon explain a quick work around to the little issue I had.

My turns are really ugly--Any advice?
Tommy Z 17 1218 11-21-2006 04:40 AM

Pete Niotis

dkshema:
You can't get it to bank like you want to most likely because you don't have enough forward speed and aren't giving enough cyclic to get into a truly banked turn. You're probably also neglecting to coordinate tail rotor with the turn so that the heli actually tracks in the turn. If you don't coordinate rudder, you'll find that the tail will tend to sink in towards the center of the turn, and the heli will then follow it, sideways, slipping out of the air. Get some forward speed, bank the heli. If it doesn't bank, give it more aileron cyclic till it does, follow with some "up" or back cyclic and a bit of throttle and pitch. Keep the nose tracking the arc of the turn by adding rudder to keep the nose into the turn.

Be somewhat agressive in the turn. That's the real key. If you go timid, you'll be back doing hovering-type turns and wondering what happened to those nice, grooving, banked turns.
dkshema says it well! I will add that not enough forward speed will translate to needing more rudder input and possibly less bank/aileron. Flying upwind and turning to downwind direction will require you to go easy on aileron and use more rudder while also focusing and keeping nose up just a tad bit and add a bit of collective to avoid a drastic increase in speed or loss of altitude. Wind direction always makes things interesting with coordinated turns. Many examples to talk about but best to practice in all different wind directions in real life.

Mike Fortin:
1. Simulator (practice as if it's real life)
2. Slow Down and take your time (Your going to fast)
3. Learn the Basics (Hover in all positions; ie; Nose in, sideways, etc.)
4. Altitude is your friend (3 mistakes high)
5. Repeat as needed
Mike gives great pre-requisite advice.

It takes serious dedication and practice to get coordinated turns close to perfect so don't get irritated, just keep working on them. I still do

Terry,

Question 1, The further you go IN with the paddles the less they will bite and it will slow down the cyclic rate but their is a balance you must find. If the paddles are OUT too far it might be too much flybar and give you a "dirty" type of feel to the cyclics. This is something you need to experiment with to find the right feel for yourself. There is no right or wrong in this scenario, just not enough, just right or too much.

Question 2, Yes the swash goes up for negative with this particular setup

I agree with most of the guys, get a 50. I could even have fun with a 30 and learn from it also. The 90 is great for being impressive but you can learn more on a 30 or 50 imho. Shortcuts just cost more time and money.

Tony, I don't think your limit is reached unless you give up.


The worst thing you can do is look at other people's progress, focus on what makes you happy. I go to the field some days and would bore the dead but I leave happy just because I am working on what I like to do. This is not a competition unless that's what you want. My best flying happens when I focus on me and my heli and nobody else. Bottom-line is have fun and do what you want to do, your flying will look much better when you are truly having fun.

If the servo in question is rated for 4.8v and 6volts you are fine. Keep the tail servo running @ 4.8V - 5.3V to be on safe side. If using duralites with a 6Volt system just make sure to buy (#55053 - Voltage Step Down for Helicopter Tail Servo 5.3 volts) they offer to install for tail servo.

Helijockey, it's very easy to bog the engine in a funnel. You may be running too much pitch which is hard enough in experienced hands and would certainly be a nightmare in beginner hands. Your engine might not be tuned properly and a governor means nothing unless your engine is performing good/tuned correctly.

The advice Colin offers is real good regarding flying sidways circuits but when you are new you must go real slow!!! Practice a sideways circuit with almost no slant.

Which heli are you flying? How do you know your engine is only performing to 85%?

I did my first funnel on accident, I was practicing backwards circles and discovered the funnel by using too much rudder while flying a circuit.

I have not been using the stiffeners or bottom plate. The only crash I've had broke one of the fan shroud halves and that was easy and quick to fix. I'm sure I will break other things in the future but the nice thing is that this heli is very modular which makes it simple to work on.

What should I practice?

gullie667
Pete Niotis

rrApprentice

Grand Haven MI, USA

Gullie,

What helps me with precision and control is hovering figure eights in all directions upright and inverted, turning into and out of the flightline. This is practiced on the sim and at the field. Some days I like to just fly and be artistic and other days I'm in the mood to practice, this also depends on how my machine is performing. If the heli is performing good on a given day, I'll have fun and not really work on precision that day but if the heli is kind of dragging along I'll use that day to practice precision things and take it easy on the heli. Another thing I like to do is make an approach and land under power similar to an auto without hovering right before I set it down. Might sound easy but very difficult to do precise while maintaining a constant decent and nailing the landing without wobbling at the bottom. Try it in your idle up mode and then it becomes even more interesting Honestly, this is a lot of fun and helps with precision. Step it up a notch and do this landing nose in, tail in and from both sides. Let's not forget about the inverted decent practice just be sure to not include the landing part on this practice maneuver but instead end the approach with an eye level inverted hover.

The most important thing to do is have fun even while your practicing precision and this means you may need to get a little creative to keep your interest alive.

That collar is a bit overkill but then again that's one worry that you will not have anymore. The only concern I would have with that is reinstalling it on a new tail gear at the field in the event of a minor crash. If it's a press fit would you require some kind of arbor press to carry with you to the field?

I green loctite the pin, install set screw then use heatshrink over the neck, no problems at all.

Cody, what yug said is called Translating Tendency and inherent to helicopters.

Learning to correct for this involves practice. A properly setup helicopter helps but the Translating Tendency will never go away.

I'm not sure if you would want to attempt to mix this out. You can spend many hours playing with setup and mixes or you can settle for a proper and simple setup and go burn fuel.

cody, this might just be an instance where you are lacking practice on sideview orientation. Try hovering side in and see how well you do keeping it from drifting in or out, do it inverted and upright nose right and nose left. Also, try a half back flip to a inverted hover, hold and then forward half flip to upright hover and see if you can keep it from coming in or out, hard to do but good test to see if it's lack of pilot control or setup, it could be a combination of both but in my experience it's usually my thumbs

The other thing that might be happening is that you are using too much collective during the tic toc.

I don't think you need mixing.

pep999, first off like barracudahockey stated if you are using a hammer something is wrong. In your situation the head has an extremely tight tolerance to the stock main shaft. The right thing to do would be to fine sand the top of the main shaft or send the head back to Quick UK for replacement head with proper tolerance.


To get the head off, use a micro torch to heat the head yoke where it slides over the main shaft.

yeah drummer that piece of plastic plate with the U shape for the glowplug is what they refer to as the baffle in the 90 manual and does not need to be there for the "OS90" so you might as well finish removing whatever is left of it with a dremmel.

no problem!

Drummer, I loved how you described the engine symptoms
"head speed starts to drop and the engine is a coughing like a dog eating a chicken bone."
To clear this up, you do not use the plastic baffle in the fan shroud when using OS motors, that baffle is used when installing TT,YS or Webra motors. For reference, check the manual on page 13 section (1-2-5 Cooling Fan Casing Subassembly)

never been there knock on wood but I will suggest that you immediately stop pirouetting and try to get back to a stationary hover position whether inverted or upright. Be sure to have your throttle hold or throttle kill setup because if you are out of control because of an orientation issue or mechanical/electrical failure then the best thing to do is to kill power before someone gets hurt including yourself. Keeping it out and away from you is always a safe bet also.

When I was learning them...I practiced them as half piro flips a good distance away from myself till I gained some confidence. Follow your insticts with safety and you should be fine.

well...the advice on which way to move the sticks never clicked with me. I tried that back when only a few guys were doing piro flips but was very frustrating for me so I got comfy with the idea of breaking it down and just went to work on pirouetting and flipping seperately from each other. Eventually, the light bulb clicked in my head and everything made sense. I played the drums for over 15 years, so learning complex things always forced me to break everything down and that I think has helped me to understand what works for me in regards to my own learning process.


I will say you have to be able to visualize the maneuver, that itself is a big help in learning. Watch videos or G3 recordings over and over till the manuever is burned into your head.

Alan's vid is very kewl because it shows his stick movements but they show that because this is what sells and I would want to show that too if I were offering a educational 3D vid but to have full control of the maneuver you will need to eventually sit down and learn all the basic parts of the maneuver. I think having an idea of the stick movements upfront is actually a good idea but it will never replace what you can get out of logical and diligent practice.

I have been working on a new practice maneuver that has helped me with every pirouetting maneuver I can think of and I call it a Pirouetting Half Pipe. It's the same as watching skateboard guys or freestyle bmx bike guys doing there thing on a "U" shape ramp but with a heli you pirouette constantly to form a "U" shape.

I will upload a G3 recording of this real soon.

I think it's also on Vid, Mark ryder was recently taking vid at the Hirobo Cup and I believe he will post some vids soon of that event...he's been pretty busy lately.

Hope I was able to help

I would start with a simple and symmetrical setup, +10/-10 on pitch, 6┬░ on cyclics, throttle setup with correct geometry, V curve to start and fine tune or slap in a governor, good quality carbon blades with a dose of finesse on the sticks to compliment your setup

I agree the 50 will be more forgiving on collective/cyclic management but it can be done on a 30 and will probably make you a better pilot.

Another benefit of the 30 is that you will probably do less damage when you go in over the 50.

you know...I will probably be attacked for saying this but I would practice 3D on a 30 before a 50, collective management will improve if you practice on a 30. The consensus seems to be that you need really good collective management skills to fly maneuvers with a 30 and that is correct but how would that be detrimental to you?

Back a few months ago, the Monday after the Las Vegas funfly weekend Alan Szabo Jr. brought his raptor 30 out to the field and he did everything from his normal routine that he would usually do on a 90 and he made that 30 look real good. All his maneuvers with the 30 were very low also. Obviously everything will be smaller in size and slower but you can do everything with a 30V2. The only thing that might be nice is to upgrade the head yoke to the metal version.

Mikel...the sz comes in two flavors, a non pumped non regulated version and a regulated/pumped version, both systems work very well but the regulated/pumped version will be a little more consistent through out the whole tank. The non pumped non regulated version will need to be a little richer on the high end but will still pull really good for most. The non pumped/non regulated version will also be easier to troubleshoot when tracking motor problems.

Sweet compact cordless driver for helis
I just bought this new Ion cordless compact drill/driver from Bosch last week and thought that some of you might find this tool real handy for things around the house and better yet for heli assembly and disassembly. It comes with 2 ion batts and a 30min quick charger and case and also has a trigger activated led light so you can better see what your are screwing or drilling. It is very tiny and feels comfy to hold for extended use.

coordinated turns

rrApprentice

Grand Haven MI, USA

Tommy,

Ask yourself this, if you were not in FF and just in a hover, what would you do to make the heli move very slow while defining a turn without losing or gaining altitude or without gaining or losing airspeed?

On the other hand, if you are in in FF and you are turning while going downwind, what would you do to prevent the heli from going warp speed?

On another note, if your are turning into the wind, what would you do to make sure heli keeps the same airspeed through the turn without gaining or losing altitude?

My point is that it';s not easy to do coordinated turns consistently because of different weather/wind conditions. I suggest you burn a lot of fuel with emphasis on coordinated turns and make sure you practice them in all wind conditions. One day you will come home feeling real good about your turns and the next day you might go home feeling like you had no control at all. It's all about time behind the sticks in various wind/temp conditions.

I don't think anyone can give you a single good answer unless we have perfect control of wind conditions like we can on a simulator.

My advice is try to do slow hovering turns in many different wind conditions.

every heli will shudder in violent sudden stop maneuvers...dampeners/design, thrust bearings, radial bearings, blade type, slop in control system, paddle type, flybar length, etc, etc...can aggrevate the shuddering or minimize it but then you must use the right technique with the sticks to keep the shuddering from happening.

Helis don't like to stop abruptly but you can certainly cover it up

I know the Midwest guys well and think the dues are cheap for the amount of help you get from being with some really good and knowledgeable pilots. Most of them I know well and are close friends, always a good time to be around them. The Midwest club has helped and supported pilots like Steve Mcfall and Andrew Jesky so I'd say it's a great thing to be part of that club.

Steven locked right into the Avant, he was "xtreme" and impressive to watch, I was inspired by his flying!

Steven - Welcome to Team Avant!

don't worry about what to call it but keep in mind what makes you happy. If you are concerned with what others will call your flying then your mind is not where it should be.

Nas...it's a aluminum frame spacer that is used through out the Avant heli to keep frames together. You can also use a nylon m3 bolt for the standoff.

I have had one crash with the Avant in 11 months...it free fell about the length of two city light posts/60feet and the only thing that broke was the bottom plate under the engine in regards to the frame set and one strut from the landing gear. I was not really surprised by that because the frameset seemed heavy duty during the build but I did feel better after experiencing the free fall. The Avant really has a hardcore frameset, don't let it worry you.

we spend $2500.00 on a heli that we usually crash and can cost $200.00 or go beyond $1000.00 to repair but $2100.00 on a radio that will not be driven into the ground is not justifiable? The trasmitter is not at risk when you fly so it's a good investment, just my opinion. think of it this way...would a financial institution use your $2500.00 heli as collateral or your 14mz radio as collateral?

Also Augusto seems to be a person who is not only smart and know his business but who also appears to actually care.
Very smart indeed and does care a great deal. Augusto is also a long time hobbyist and can fly very technical, smooth, and extreme which makes it easy for him to understand the market and areas in need of improvement regarding heli design. I am proud and happy to be working with CarbonXtreme.

I have had 5 different KSJ's, all the same issue. I did try a robbe and that was a little better, but the Vario I found to be the best so far. I have had two vario starters and the only reason for that is that I dropped my starter on concrete so I messed it up Anyway, both Vario starters were consistent and the best I have had. The runout on the KSJ or others is really not a problem but it was a bit annoying.

Have any of you guys had a similar experience with this starter?
Bad runout


My fix was ordering the Vario starter hex wand from Rick's, the runout on the Vario is much better, it's more expensive but worth it to me.
