Hi Union 1.

Am just about to finish mine. Does it really need 7 degrees left tilt on the head per instructions. Most of my others need 2 - 4 degrees ?

Thanks

Hi Graham, yep... Definitely 7 degrees offset required. Flew straight off the grass with this.
Good luck

Just got mine delivered. Everything looks fine but my canopy will need a couple of magnets to bring the sides of it flush with the sides of the fuse. My Zippy compact 3300, 4 cell fits with a lot of room to spare. Looks like room to spare fore and aft for larger batteries of CG allows.
It is big. And wheel pants too!

I just got mine today. I have never had a Heli or Auto Gyro before. There is a wooden gauge with
it but I am not sure where to place it or how to set it. If someone could help me I would really appreciate it.
Thanks,

Thanks for the reply Union 1 , must be motor torque as there is no motor offset.

Charlie,
Go to YouTube and search for the Super G. There is only one build video that will come up. In it, towards the end of the video, they show you how to use the jig. It measures the left tilt of the rotor at 7 degrees. The jig has a 7 degree mark on it which is where the control horn should line up with when the jig is placed behind the mast, up against the rotor.

Thanks for that, very nice job, is it just the prop out of balance or has the spinner something to do with the balance? Thank you again for the video I am sure it will answer a lot of questions for the readers of this thread, best of luck with the maiden, regards
