Had an unplanned sesh with Gav. I was popping down for a flight on my way home from Wickes & he was there with Dog & HK500. Had 3 good flights each. I had some more continous piro flip practice & on my last pack i done what i reckon was my best ones so far. It wasn't drifting like usual so i was getting my collective management better & my stir was more in timing with the tail. I need consistancy & then some fine tuning (my thumbs not the heli) before i start bringing them lower.

Gav had some new KBDD paddles on his 500 making it roll & flip much faster. The HK never fails to impress me how good it flies for such a cheap kit

I flew a bit yesterday. Just in the garage though. Had some tail/gyro issues.

Been home from work since 12-22. Flew everyday with exception of last Friday. Today is 25F, 14mph, and sunny. Froze my fingers with only one flight on EXI 450 Pro Belt. Heli has 5+ hours and flies great.

Happy New Year everyone...

Just one Flight

Trying to stup the tail on my dad's HK450 It wont hold but wags a bit but not the normal wag as its kind of intermittent.

Here's The video with me trying to do a bit of nose in at the end

HK450 Flight in Garden 2-1-11 (6 min 39 sec)


Enjoy

Its a HK401B Gyro with a MKS DS480 Tail Servo. I have another HK401B so i might try that as it could be the gyro.

Did you try moving your ball link to the closest hole to the center of the horn? It may help and make sure there is ABSOLUTELY NO BINDING! Hope it helps.
And no flying for me for a while til I get some new main shafts for my Dragonus.

Yes in deedie, we had a little BBQ out at TORCHS field today, about 20 pilots, and some family, it was a bit windy to start the day, but calmed down nice by the end, I did about 25 flights total, never did fire up a nitro

Did a little bedroom SAR with my 3ch coaxial. And still timid to order a Dynam Hawk Sky since I have no credit card.

1 pack @ 7:30am. Sunny, 19F, 6mph. EXI 450 Pro Belt. Fingers frozen. Needed to fly on last day before returning to work tomorrow. Probably push a few more packs thru this afternoon. Good New Year so far...

My hk401b has a VIOLENT wag in rate mode that i could only tune out a bit... But in HH mode it was gone.
No binding, everything setup correctly.. I tried the whole range of gain and nothing makes a difference. So its iether the gyro or the tail servo... Im replacing both.
