Well been having fun with the gyro , i damaged the flame blades hitting a tree , drugs doctor has me on was giving me problems , so i put on carbon blades and the fun started heli was all over the place, loss of lift and hit the dirt, the weight of the blades are flame blades 28g each carbon blades 18g each , so i headed down the blade problem route , but thanks to Viktor (flying pitcher) and spykez and a long chat with both it was gyro gains , the heli was on analog servos when first built it and had to reduce gains from 40% to 20% after reading on this forum, 40% is default for digital servos as these were analog i had bouncing when in a hover ,
Now i fitted the emax digital servos when i told the gyro all servos were digital it put gains back to 40% at the same time i fitted the flame blades the extra weight softened the gains, but once the light weight blades went on the heli had its gains to high and problem started ,so now heli gyro gains are at 25% it flys ok with light weight blades but in forward flight it bounces, so i lowered the gains but it got worse to keep in a hover .
So gain are back to 25% and the flame blades are back on and she flys really nice now she holds at steady forward flight no bounce , so i will have to get some more for the airwolf .
Thanks again to spykez he gave me a link for the advance setting up of the gyro , OMG i wish i knew what they are talking about it went over my head , so will have to read a few more times then i may start to understand it some more .
Things are on hold at moment with work messing about so new job may have to come first , i ordered new tail booms and digital pitch gauge from eHIROBO as the one i down loaded for my iphone dont give a real reading , cant wait to get my DX9
