XK K123 heli


Hello; Just got this heli and I have it flying. I used to fly gas years ago . I got this heli to fly scale around the yard. I need some help related to throttle and pitch settings for scale flying. The factory throttle settings seem high and pitch to low. It seems like its really screaming in the hover. If anyone is out there who flys this plane scale I would love to try your throttle and pitch settings. Thanks

In idle up, I use linear pitch curve (00, 25, 50, 75, 100) and 100 on throttle curve. Seems to work fine in all styles of flying. My "normal" mode pitch curve is (40, 45, 50, 70, 100) but can't say how well that works since I only use normal to start up.

going from a 8t to 9t pinion helps. Pitch settings are quite narrow as it is easy to over pitch and bog these guys down, something like 65 is all they can take, more than that is bog city........... I fly mine on a devo 10 / deviation software, not sure on stock transmitter settings. stock battery is a bit gutless as well, the K124 battery is large (700 mah) and fits perfect.

Hi guys. I just purchased the RTF version. I'm hoping it will let me fly inverted. I would have bought the BNF version but I only have Spektrum radios. Thanks for the battery information kiwi_craig. I think the one I ordered comes with one battery. I have a Taranis X7 also, but I don't think that it would work for it either.

They will do inverted but they are a heavy scale bird not a light weight pocket rocket.

Add extra magnets on the canopy, easy to piggy back them on then super glue on the magnet face and drop them on.

Cool. I have a batch of tiny rare earth magnets from other kits lying around. The weather has been so crappy here, I'm spending most of my free time upgrading my rc models.
