First flights this afternoon. Very responsive machine !

In flight, the lower rotor stops, turns again and stops again...
The flight is even smoother when the lower rotor stops.
Any idea on the reasons of that ?

I don't think that I'm aware of a rotor actually stopping in flight on my model..possibly something binding ?
If the flight is smoother with out the lower rotor turning....possibly remove ?

I will check all kinds of abnormal friction between the carbon rod, the brass tubes and the stop rings...

Maybe it touches the vertical stabilizer?

No problem with the proximity of the vertical stabilizer.
I will try and add a nylon washer between the rotor brass tube and the above steel stop ring ...

Hello,

A new KWIRL in France.

First flight at last Saturday.

Kwirl flies very well and it's very fun to pilot.

Thank you to Thomas Buchwald for this fantastic model

Now that is a nice looking model....and arn't they fun to fly.
When you get it trimmed out ...you will find it will fly without any TX input ..just like a free flight model. Big circles across the sky.
Happy Landings
