Rudder Servo

Should I use a digital rudder servo? My anolog servo buzzes and gets warm and even starts to smell hot. Otherwise it does opperate correctly.

you should use a digital servo for the tail...especially for the tail. if youre using the v200d01 RX you should stick with a walkera brand digital servo because the frame rate is unknown and so selecting a non-walkera aftermarket servo will be difficult.

Try calibrating your esc to train it to your throttle range of your tx.

throttle stick up, plug in heli battery, hear confirmation beep, bring back to 0 throttle

that is if you already havent done so

You may need to bind once 'normally' with throttle down first then unplug the heli leave TX on, put throttle to MAX and reconnect the heli for this to work since as the TX turns on it complains of a non-zero throttle and if it's started the binding, moving the sticks can stop it.

The way I have been doing it is to bind with a separate receiver pack and the red wire unhooked for the esc/Rx plug. Then I put the stick to the top, plug the battery to the speed control, listen for the beeps, move the stick down, listen for the beeps then unplug everything. I have done this a number of time, but I will try this idea. Thanks thwaitm and tengarang.

well, had a nice crash today. I was outside and it was nice and sunny, doing some large loops and the tail took an uncommanded turn and I tried to correct but I got disorientated and I though it was facing towards me when actually it was facing away. Come to find out I discovered the RX range limit of this little guy, about 50 - 60 yards away while about 50 - 60 ft in the air. I heard the motor cutting of and back on and finally it just dropped like a rock out of the sky. Had some extensive damage to the bird too, destroyed skids, Battery frame, main frame,1 blade, main gear, and I discovered that the antenna was only hanging on by 3 wired. I suspect that this may be the cause of the limited range. While I was inspection the RX the damn ant. popped right off, so I ordered another RX too. so that was about an $80 crash, my most expensive to date. So it will prob be about 10 -12 days before I get her in the air. I think I will have my V450D03 by then (i hope) and I'll have a nice little report on that for y'all.

I fly a V200D01 for more then a year. I am looking for a Master, Super, Genius CP. How do they compare to my V200D01, are they easier or not to fly ? do they have a mind of their own like my V200D01 ( flying bugs) ?

CP is way more predictable and stable. If you can fly a V200D01 and not crash it for a couple of packs then you're ready for CP.
When I say fly, I mean you know your orientations - not just hovering.

CP is a little harder to fix and significantly more dangerous however. Be sure to take the necessary care! Otherwise, have fun!!

You will find Mater c/p handles better than V200D01. Why ? I have both and find Master more stable/ more weight and better gyro. Also FBL F/P have bad ground action. If you can fly V200D01 and not break it you can fly c/p. Super c/p would be ok but Master ia a great deal and no more than mico100 sized birds.
Bad divot for M C/P are weak servos, but they have new metal geared one to replace. Super is cheaper to start with. Bigger is better.

Thank you thwaitn and dankar04, great to read that . It took me so much time, effort, repairs and money to fly my V200D01, I couldn't imagine that flying a beginner CP could be worse !

I have been talking to Wowhobbies about my issue and these are the answers I got:

1) You can not set end point with WK2403 due to random bind Tx.

2) The end points are set by Walkera. It can not set end points due to random bind.

Does this make any sense at all? Getting kind of frustrated because there is no smooth start or stop.

Sounds like you've done what you can. Maybe you need to try a different ESC or motor...

I agree, I will probably find a suitable Walkera ESC and go from there. Thanks.
