Hi Jodini
I did have down thrust on the motor but decided to remove it after previous comments were received. The hang angle is 12 deg. It was originally 12 deg but went to 13.5-14 with the motor change. Hence the battery pack now moved into the rear of the tail boom.
The mast angle to thrust line is 90 deg. This has had to remain at 90 deg as that is one of the problems with using a complete heli frame as a building base.
If this configuration does not fly, or fly well, I am going to do away with the live mast and set up a direct control head. It is unfortunate, but I now have a spare head as my PT 25 bit the dust the other day. It was one of those "monkey see, monkey do" moments. This came about after watching an auto gyro do loops on You tube.
It looks like my hopes for a fly this weekend have been dashed as my wife has talked me into heading north as it is a long weekend with Monday being a holiday. Still a weekend of boating and Lake Trout fishing can't be bad!
I will post after I fly it.
Best regards Flash
