Help!
fooltaba 7c part II

Well, I am almost there. The radio finally came back. It is broadcasting.
He switched my idle up to a right side switch, which is playing havoc with my heli flying.

But.......it has been pointed out that I should limit my total aileron deflection to about 3/8", on a taboo, equal up and down.

I would think the way to limit the travel would be with end points, but if I cut those down it will also limit the flap travel, which I have been advised to give all the servo has to offer.

Is there a way to limit the ail deflection and still have full - 1" dropping - flaps?

Thanks

(I love this plane. It is the finest flying thing I have ever controlled. Well, sort of controlled)

I think you might find what you're looking for in the "differential" setting.

Just set dual rates for the ailerons. For low rates, just use whatever % gives you the desired 3/8" travel.

Thanks guys. I ran differential up and down it's spectrum but dual rates sounds promising.

I guess I should be able to set a mode in the throw I want and leave it there always. Have never messed with dr but it makes sense.

End point adjustments are for setting maximum servo travel limits, so as to avoid mechanical interferance.....ie your horn or linkage running into some part of the plane.

The "dual-rates" are definetly where you want to be to limit just aileron travel. Just because they call it "dual" rates does not mean you have to set up two different things on the switch, btw they could be the same settings in both switch positions.

I often got into trouble forgetting I'm on low rates and then not having the control athority when landing flaps were down. I now avoid that problem by using only the expo on the dual-rates menu, for a "low rate" I crank up the expo to around 40-50%. that softens the controls enough, but if I need the full throw I don't need to hit a switch first. I fly on my "high rate", which has much less or no expo, unless I need finer control for thermaling. The travel limits are the same for both "rates".

Yeah, it dawned on me that I can set the dual rate switch at the same value in both directions and avoid the problem of bumping it with my fumbly fingers.

I am still in the habit of dropping the flaps all the way even when I don't want them (slamming them down), because I have been using that stick for throttle for so many years.

One thing at a time. (my new motto)

loop a rubberband around the transmitters metal handle (the one on the back) now take the free end of the rubberband and loop it around the throttle stick.

VIOLA stick springs forward all by itself!! Old tircks are the best tricks as they say


Any other problems I can solve for you?? LOL
