Hm, suddenly the swashplate went wrong on my heli. Can I adjust that on the tx?
When I connect the tx to the heli, the swashplate goes un-even and is not in level.

How do I get it in level. I don't dare to hover the heli now as it only fly backwards because og the swashplate.

Are you using a Devo with Deviation and a 2801 receiver?

Well never mind about the transmitter then. Never heard of this suddenly happening between an Tx and Rx. All 3 servo's should center themselves after binding. Which one isn't? The one that isn't check travel. Does it move normally? Any grinding or skipping?

Theire not center themselfs after binding. The swashplate goes backwards after binding. Don't know which of the servos that is.
I can't fly with it like this.

Do the heli need to stand very right on the floor while binding?
This happend after I put a trainingkit on it, and the heli stands on that and may not be totally even.

It should be level as you can get it. That is the elevator servo connected to the front of the swash. I ask again does it center itself, arm at 90? How does it operate?

No, it does not center itselfs when binding. Then swash goes backwards and stays there. Not right at all, so I'm gonna take off the trainingkit and see if that helps.

If the arm always returns to the same position after binding I would just remove the arm from the servo and position it again at a 90 degree for zero pitch. You will need to readjust the linkage to lift straight on take off.

Hi guys,

this week seems to be good weather forecast for 1st flihgt of my heli. I'll let you know, if I'll flight during end of this week.
Also I decided to buy DEVO 10 for T-REX 450, they are now on the way, so when I received them, I'll start to build my t-rex.

But I'll need help about setting up proper wirinig, 3gx with rx 1002 and proper settings for tx.
Will you please help me, when I'll start to work with it?
can I ask you here, when will be the time, or should I ask here - Walk-era and Beyond ?

Cause I know you here, you helped me so much ;-)

And also, does have anybody of you DEVO 10 users manual in pdf?
Thank you, heli bros ;-)

Hi, i'm sure here, or walkera and beyond, or the v450 walkera thread would all be good places to ask

At some point, and a few times since then, i've posted how i wired up my 450 3gx to the 2801 pro. I'm sure the devo will be similar enough, so i can dig that up for you again when you are about ready. Just give me a day or two advance cause i don't check this every day anymore, but i do keep up with it for the most part

I'm more than happy to make sure you get flying though, and i'm sure i'm not the only one here that can help, so one of us will definitely help get u in the air!!!

I'm actually running my Blade 450X with my Devo 10, using a 1002 rx and a Beastx MicroBeast. I know they are different FBL units, but I can also lend some assistance. I am also running the Deviation firmware on the Devo 10.

To keep this on topic, I'm now using my Devo 10 for my Blade 450X, my Master CP, and my V400d02. And of course, for the Phoenix sim.

Good luck with the 450 build.
