Spartan DS760 arrived and installed today on my Dragonus 450. And USB flash link cable.
Very good gyro, about the same size as the Logictech 2100T, ever so slightly thicker but nothing in it really.
40% gain was way too much for my set-up with my JR DS3500G. Found the sweet spot to be at around 25% no wagging yet holds on full collective punching without any tail movement. Flight performance is awesome, no wag no matter how fast you go, how hard you are with collective or cyclic etc. During a hover the tail doesn't wonder, not even a few mm's! Sideways flight is locked in once again, rock solid.
102% ATV on left piros and 104% ATV on right piros. (uneven otherwise) 100% too slow.
USB fine tuning is amazing too, everything you could ever need and you have updatable firmware!
Only didn't like the fact that after a full pirouette you can do the same in the other direction instantly although it does look cool it's a nightmare for the tail belt/tail system. I'm used to a delay like my other Logictech 2100T gyros have. I guess I'll have to reprogram my hands! I've lowed the acceleration and de acceleration rates to help. Later on I'll just tighten my tail belt even more.
I was wondering why my helis were bogging more than they used too last year.
After some research online I found out that it was because the lipos were too cold.
Keep your lipos at 40C+ for proper flight performance, I was amazed after trying my packs after heating them up. The power was a LOT higher!
I made a lipo warming box from a postage box with a folding lid. Insulated any gaps with got glue and foam. Used aluminium foil layers to reflect heat back in and the heat pack was one of those microwave style types.
You have to turn the lipos around after some time (I'm fussy and like to heat both sides of the pack) but it does work well.
I don't know the optimum temp but I've read 40C is good, so just going to stick with that.
Keeping in mind this is my first paint job of mine and it's been touched up and flown/bent a lot (including a dog biting it then running to the other side of the field)... (The yellow is not overspray that's the reflection of the top on the gloss)
Well it was only meant to be temporary until I painted my new canopy.
