How fast do you think someone could actually get the 4#3 flying? You could probably get it really moving in a long dive or something.

MIA Upgrades for the Walkera Coaxial 5#6 Coming! This May!

I made some neat upgrades for the 5#6 , this is the coaxial version but since it uses similar architecture to the 4#3 MIA Upgrades, I thought I keep this latest news here in this thread.

I 've had the 5#6 Coaxial for a while now and broke the skids and the plastic tail section, so I thought this heli could also benefit from a MIA upgrades kit.

well,I know they will go at least 20 mph on their own! brushless of course, and I didnt open it up all the way-so my guess is 30mph easy

edit:I know 'cause I raced a car with my 4#3 and we clocked it!-I was too scared to go faster than 20 mph on pavement with no parts!

Car won eventually btw

Dead Spot in Tail Motor

Can someone help me with this?

My 4#3 has developed a dead spot in the tail motor.
At about 3/4 throttle, the tail motor just stops.
A bit more throttle it comes back on, also with a bit less. But right at that one spot, it's dead.

Any ideas on what would be causing this? Is the receiver (4-in-1) bad?

Thanks!!

More MIA 4#3 RF Extreme Flights

I wanted the RF 4#3 to look like the MIA Canopy with the Skulls so I redid the paint scheme to match it. I wanted to do the complete 3D model to look like the MIA G10 or Carbon frame setup , this would be awesome!, but this requires quite a bit of time so I just did the canopy graphics for now, although the MIA Edge Canopy has a little more persona and character to it.

The Model Flight Dynamics mimics the use of the very same woody blades I used on the Semi-Automatic 4#3. So in the RF Model you wont see the cambered plastic blades. Flies just like the big boys, and this is basically what I was after when I revamped the flight dynamics. I adjusted the dynamics a few times before I had the proper tracking that allows this heli model to fy in reverse with much precision.

Check your tail motor connection first. Make sure there is no intermittent contact or wires loose on the tail end. Make sure you have a good tail motor.

Try pinpointing this a bit further. Work yout transmitter sticks for both the main and tail throttles, gently and see if perhaps it is the tranmitter stick that is causing this dead spot on the throttle.

Sometimes the tranmitter sticks loose contact on the potentiometers wiper blades or contacts and this casues irratic operation that can show up as dead spots on control. Especially if you are able to see throttle change at the upper and lower stick end points. Sometimes working the sticks by "jiggling it" to see if you have an intermittent stick contact, can tell you if this is where the problem is or not.

I am not sure what potientiometer quality is in the Walkera transmitter for the heli you have, but if they are the really cheap kind, this can be a possible cause.

The other cause can be electronics, especially if the Main throttle works fine but you don't have proportional tail throttle (The tail throttle should follow the main throttle), could be in the mixer or gyro section of the electronics, as well.
