Finally got some open flying in today. Really happy with the way it handles. I still have a slight tail wag I need to get out of it but other than that it flies great, even in a bit of wind.

Here's my Trex 500 OH-6 Loach. I know it aint a Loach but I like calling it that. I want to get a 5 bladed head but I know NOTHING and this SK360 thing. And what you guys call Phasing I think is something different than what I call phasing. Can you explain how hard it is to set up a Sk360 and explain phasing to me.

Nice looking heli.

All I did was load the default "scale" setting in the sk360. Then you have to set the phase. Basically this means that the blade needs to be at full "throw" 90 degrees before the location that it needs to lift. So, if you pull back on the cyclic to make the nose tilt up, the blade needs to have the full travel 90 degrees before the nose. So, when I was setting it up, I knew it was correct when I would pull full back on the cyclic and the blade directly over the nose didn't move at all, or very very little. The blade sticking out over the right (looking at it from the front) moved in a positive collective manner. It is counter-intuitive but it works. There are many places out there that can explain it better than me.

There is a good explanation in the Sk360 manual
