Thank you for the pics. Darryl did install the longer arms. The one for the elev servo has been trimmed but it still sticks out past the frame. The battery won't go up against the frame. I've found some 1500mah 25c batteries that are shorter than stock. After the first of the year I'll order some and give them a try.

Glad to hear you got it worked out. I finally got my 2702 conversion project up & running, just to strip a auto-rotation bearing on the mainshaft. With the 2702, it was VERY stable. Nice receiver! Your 4F looks like it flies well!

Happy flying!

[QUOTE=deliver1003;20300508]Thanks!

If somebody has any problem or question about rx2702v or walkera products i think i can help. except 3d i have to tweak my bird a lot to behave as i like.

I have 2 4F200's. One with the stock 3 blade head, the other with the 2 blade V200D03 head. I'm using RX2618V receivers in both of them. When I bind the RX's with my 2801 Pro Tx SOMETIMES it pulls down the AIL servo about 10 degrees from a level swash. It does this on both of the heli's so it must be something in the RX's that's causing it. Has anyone noticed this problem with the 2618 RX's ?

I'm considering buying a RX2702V receiver for my V450D01. WOW makes a big deal about their 3 page setup instructions. Are these instructions available online so that I can look at them before ordering it. Some posts I have read say that the instructions are not very helpful. My V450D01 manual has detailed instructions for setting up the RX with the 2801 Tx. Is that good enough?

I had that problem with the 2612V & 2618V. each time, I had a helluva time hovering, wouldn't stabilize. The 2612 caused me to dumbthumb one into the ground while landing. In each case I replaced them with new Rx's, one a new 2618V, the other a 2624V. Both are flying without any issues.....so far.

As far as the 2702V, your V450 instructions are sufficient, WOW's are the same with a few editing clarifications. I set one up using their instructions without any problems. What a great Rx! If you have any further questions, PM me.

Good luck,
AB

Thanks AB.

I have a replacement 2618 on order. Hopefully it will work OK.

I have another problem with the 2618. When I program in Throttle Hold it also messes up the leveling of the swash. When I inhibit throttle hold it works OK, except for the occassional pull down of the AIL servo that I mentioned before.

Hopefully these problems are fixed in the 2624.

Must be a glitch with your Rx. Are you setting the pitch too? I don't have those problems with either of mine with the TH.

Good luck!

Yes I set the TH pitch curve too.
I have the TH set to -5 just to be sure the motor is shut off.

The strange thing is that it occurs on both of my 2618's.

I think I may have solved the problem with the occasional pull down of my AIL servo.

I use subtrim and trim to level my swash.
If I zero the subtrim and trim before I turn on the TX and RX the swash ends up almost level. So each time I get ready to fly I have to set the subtrim and trim each time. It's annoying but it works.

I read in a post somewhere that that's the way the 2618 gyro works. I didn't beleive it when I read it, but I beleive it now.
If you have subtrim set to the left the gyro will try to compensate to the right when it boots up.

Anyway, the moral is, you have to mechanically level the swash. I was too lazy to do that, and was relying on subtrim to do it for me.

That may be the problem with my TH also. I havn't tried it yet, but I think it will solve that problem too.
