Nah, the sync is good. I think its the delay between servo action and flight reaction as the hell is floating on a bed of air

I am surprised to say (gobsmacked even!) it flys as well as my AR7200BX in my Blade 300X
That said - I don't fly anywhere near as aggressively as Simon (yet!)
Thanks. Next video instalment is an hour away and is a very nasty pitch up

I can't fly 3D so I concentrated on piro precision and general flight differences since V3.5. On the first flight the tail gain was too high so I landed went down 10 points and procceded with flight no2. Piro stability is much improved. Also overal gains seem higher than 3.5. I really liked how it felt although not much different than 3.5. I tried to simulate any FFF pitch up but failed even in today's high wind. I could not detect it though even on 3.5 software on the 500. On the 450 i did have an issue with it. Will have to report back when the wind gets better. The third video is being uploaded as we speak.

I got my 4.0 software to show the COM ports now, I opened it up while in normal mode instead of Safe Mode on my laptop. However, my laptop is so slow in normal mode (that's why I use safe mode) that programming the thing might not be possible but I'll try it.

An especially nasty pitchup in the middle of this vid. It is very sudden and shudders through the helicopter making the swash cam move and vibrate. Therefore the onboard picture is not great. However, slowing it down we can see that during pitchup the swash does little to react. One of two possibilities:

1) The zyx does not respond to the rotor disc suddenly changing to a new orientation
2) The servos don't have enough torque.

I can almost certainly rule out the later as earlier ZYX firmware does not have this problem, for example v3.02, meaning the problem is very likely within zyx programming.

Your thoughts guy's?

Simon mate, from what I hear than see is that there is a massive bogging going on right at the moment the pitching begins. That means your battery motor combo is not up to the pitch that you are running. Please for the shake of argument lower your total pitch from whatever you have to +- 9 and fly again to see if it does it again. Also how many degrees cyclic do you have?

That's right. But I think it's the pitch up that causes the bogging even though I admit the esky motor is not the strongest and the batteries are old and cold.

This heli was always a bit of an experiment as I set out to make her as lightweight as possible. As for pitch +-10 collective and +-7.5 on cyclic

Let me add another stick to the fire. My first upload 4.0 to the 450, flies fine without the fuse installed, however when installed it does fine for a few seonds and then start to turn slowly to the left then starts to piro harder to the left.

I've taken it apart 3 times to check for any interference from the fuse and its fine.

I did take the canopy off for one test hover and it seemed better , almost a minute before the drift and piro.

My thinking is the magnets in the canopy may be a problem now with 4.0 as it didnt do this with the 3.5.

I think I'm going to go back to the 3.5 , Where do I get that one as the units already had that installed when I got them.

Edit; Never mind , I found the 3.5 firmware...... but thanks.

It's not the motor battery combo, it's the incredibly quick reaction from the gyro causing the bog. JMHO. Jim

Software v4 - Collective Reversed?

Hi,

Did anyone notice that in Tarot Software v4 the Collective in the monitor screen is reversed? Or at least it is against John's v1.22 software.

I made a quick video because its so much easier to explain.

Tarot V4 Monitor on Collective is reversed.

Also, whats the throttle for?

Simon , nice job on the tail cam . And i thought i had a tight back garden LOL
Yes bionicbone . No idea about the throttle . Maybe trim?

Are you sure? Not a lot of swash movement from the gyro reacting during the pitchup in the video.

I think I fried it...... I got the 3.5 rar file and put in in manually , it said it downloaded and now the thing comes on with a red and blue light then a yellow only.

I tried a reset and it wont connect anymore and only a yellow light.

Sweet bejebus, what the heck did I do here ??

Any ideas ? or did I just toast this thing?
