Newbie alert!!

Hay guys,
New here, hello all.
I was determined to read the whole thing before I made a post ÖI only made it to page 33. Just canít stand it anymore, I got a v400 used on EBay and Iím afraid to even look at it. I am complete newbie. I have had some fixed wing experience and some really bad experience with a Blade CP. I know that there is setup involved but have been looking on the internet for about two weeks now and have not found anything that gives a good step by step to mechanically and electronically setup a stock v400 with a 2603 TX. The only mods I plan on doing are the boom brace from RTF HELLI and I have some Hectic mg servos on the way (ordered them around page 4). As you all know the manuals that come with it are less than useless. I have read though both of them twice and still donít know a thing about this helli. If one (or more) of you have found something or blogged soothing yourselves, could you put the links up so I can go out a crash this bird and now it was me not the setup? What Iím looking for is stabile hover with very little ff for now gonna take it nice and slow. I bought the USB adapter to use with a sim but I canít seem to get FMS up and running on my PC running win 7 pro 64 bit, any ideas on that would be a great help too. By the way I will finish reading this all the way through I love the stories and vids. You guys rock!
Thanks,
DL42

i believe i saw somebody else flying a v400 from malaysia at some point. If ordering and receiving parts from HK isnt a problem then helipal is where you would go to buy parts.

if you have the extra money i HIGHLY recommend picking up the 2801 it makes the world of difference. If you dont i believe Kdean has done a big writeup on how to setup the 2603 i also believe there are some good setup videos on youtube for that radio.

2603 setup

Thanks shadow 102,
Unfortunately I donít see a 2801 in my near future, unless I find a deal on EBay. I have been looking on YouTube and I canít find much just ads and RTF mods. Maybe I'm not using the magic words. Nothing on how to setup a stock v400 or the 2603 either one. If the 2801 comes with the same kind of manual I donít think I want it anyway. I mean what good is it if you donít know what to do with it?
thanks,
DL42

I got my V400 set up with the Emax ES08MD servos it is also set up on the 2801 but I have it the same as it was on the 2603 for my test flight. I did a bind to both to check pitch and its the same I did this as I was just doing a 2801 set up when the stock servos went south. Test flight soon.

the biggest plus to a 2801 is being able to program in "2801" mode in other words you have access to the pitch and throttle curves and can program it like a normal radio


for those needing a little programming help this is one of the most important programing features in the 2603:

Thanks shadow 102, thanks kdean,
Just did a search in the classifieds hear on the board a 2801 MAY be possible. Dumb question, how do I find someone’s blogs, I know kdean has some on the servo mod I saved the links to them for when I get my new servos but tried to search the blogs for kdean and spad and got nowhere.
Thanks,
dl

Yes they are digital. I just did a hop it is windy but it did good I did put in some EXP as it was touchy. I have my gyro at 100% on the 2801 is that to much ?

Hay shadow,
I have seen that vid but thought it would be wrong for a stock v400 that was explaining how to set it for the brushless mod. Since the brushless motor spins faster the numbers would be wrong would they be?
Kdean,
Good stuff, that answers a lot of the questions I had
Thanks to both of you guys,
DL

it gives you and idea on what settings are what and how to change them. every heli is different so your settings will be different than somebody elses

Here is another great thread on the helifreak fourm with lots of info. It was started by otter555, but he moved on, and now i think blayd took over as the host.

http://www.helifreak.com/showthread....60049&page=124

this is thread that inspired me to start my own.
