Yaw control backwards?

Hi everyone,

Newbie to RC here. I picked up the RotorConcept HPQ-1 a few weeks back and have been playing with it whenever I can. After a few broken propellers I think I'm starting to get it. I think I'm almost done with trimming up my new quadcopter. Although it's not quite as stable as some of yours in the videos you've posted!

My question is, I noticed when I move the yaw control to the left, the copter spins to the right, and vice versa. Is that supposed to happen? It seemed backwards to me which is why i thought i'd sign up and ask the question.

Thanks for your help!

You ought to have a reverse function. Have you searched in the manual ?

Yeah, I've read that, but like I said, it seemed backwards. That home-grown PDF didn't seem to be very informative in terms of HOW to reverse - unless I'm overlooking it? Like I said, I'm an RC noob.

You could always reverse the direction in your tx. On some f/c this would affect the arming function.

Your radio is apparently a G61.
Manual is here: http://www.rchobby-bg.com/pdf/Manual%20G61_E.pdf

Do what is written.

Awesome, thank you! I didn't know about this manual

It seems like I have a bit more control over the copter now, so this was a good thing!

Just broke another propeller though, guess I still have more learning to do

Futaba 8U Setup

Hi guys, I picked up a RotorConcept HPQ-1at Toledo and I am trying to set up my Spektrum enabled Futaba 8U. I have not been able to make it work, I can occasionally get the motors to very briefly spool, but that is it. I have tried to set the transimtter in heli and airplane modes but still no joy. Can anyone please give me some pointers?

Thanks,

Lew Heifner
