She Flys!!

I could hover for a bit, but I think the training gear was messing with the gyro a bit. Other wise it is very sensitive to stick input, as once I lost the hover it would start doing slow back and forth circles as I tried to adjust. I still need to learn what happens when you start turning the dials on the receiver to slow things down a bit. Flipping the dual rate switch on the Tx cuts the cyclics by 50% which was too much for the close quarters in my backyard. I have the blades set at 7 degrees which was a whole lot better than the 9 degrees. As soon as I get the hover down I will take it out to the field and let'er eat.

This is what I got in it so far:

Trex 450 clone
Hobbymate 450 DFC Flybarless head (clone).
Align 90 degree swashplate
Tower pro servos for cyclic
Hobby King digital tail servo
Walkera 2437V receiver w/3 axis gyro
Walkera 2403 transmitter
Hobbymate 3800kv motor w/13t pinion
Hobbywing Pentium 40A speed control
