Hi Chris,

But i've try turning the gain(clockwise) to its max. And i also unplug the bat before doing the gain or proportion. I'll try it again tonite. BTW, what is the approx. degree of 'wag' should be before i back off the gain?

Thanks for the kind and fast reply!

Happy flying!
Best regards,
Rich

Franken FP2: Compy300 belt-driven tail

Hey Chris, I have got the Compy Tail all fixed up, ready to make Franken FP2 Belt-Driven. A couple of questions -

1. The tail blade grips are designed such that they can swivel smoothly when the pitch slider moves, but I noticed that when I move the pitch slider, there is a gap beween the blade holder and the tail holder as shown in the picture below. This looks like some kind of slop to me, did you notice the same thing?

I would prefer that the blade holder has some kind of grip which allow it to snap onto the tail holder so that it doesnt' slip out and is still able to rotate.

2. I noticed that after tightening the screws of the tail blade grips, the tail blades can swivel around. Is it normal for the tail blades to be this loose?

I haven't fly the heli with the tail yet so I can't say anything about performance. I just hope that everything I set up is perfectly 'normal'.

I like the comfortable control of Fixed Pitch Main Rotor which allows me to fly my heli really up-close, unlike a CP model. But I've always admired the collective pitch tail system in Hornet and T-Rex models.

Since the Hornet uses a shaft-driven tail (same like the 4-channel Corona from LiteMachines), it requires a special main gear to drive that tail. I opt to use the compy300 tail as it's belt-driven tail rotor together with the compy main gear is compatiable with the class 300 FG airframe.

I still have the CNC dual tail motor mount from helihobby, it performs very well even on a stock FP2. The dual tail motor tail will go to my other 'trainer'-FP2 for durability reason.

Ur a lifesaver! Thanks mate. Placed the order today. Need to try nose in on the simulator first.

I saw somewhere there was a download for the HB for FMS but I forget where...what are you using on FMS?

Yep, that gap is normal and intentional. If it were not there, the blade grips would rub on the blade hub. They should not move in-and-out though, when everything is tight. If they do move in and out, that means the grip bolts aren't tight enough. Crank them down until they are tight (don't forget loctite!) and the tug outwards on the grips until you feel the bearings snap into position. At this point you should have a small gap, and very free-moving (yet no slack) grips.

They are fairly loose, yes. You can squeeze the grips down with the screws until they stay in position, but I usually fly the tail blades fairly loose anyway. T-Rex tail blades are a tiny bit thicker at the root and are a bit tighter. They look cool too, with the curved trailing edges.

Really Cool!
But how come he didn't notice there's smoke coming out of his battery? That could be dangerous...


How can someone can get THAT good? Really, I mean he flies that thing inverted and upside down in every dimension possible!
It really amazes me how people can stay in focus and know where their bird is directed every single millisecond.
I guess it takes a lot of time and A LOT of spare parts

Ok guys - news flash. It doesn't work all that well with the FP.
I've just tried some of the tricks with mine. I failed in most of them. Well, all of them really. I will be away from the forum for a few weeks for repairs.
