Anyone?

You will need an ESC plugged into the servo lead of a gyro to make the tail motor respond. A small 10A unit will do.

Chris does that mean that the ESC has to be plugged into the GYRO connector of the receiver or do you mean it needs to be plugged into a physical separate gyro?

Hey guys I am having some real trouble. I can not find the supplement that used to be on Venoms site. I would really appreciate seeing a picture of dipswitch settings on the back of the radio and alignment of the motor and flight control plugs. Any help would be much appreciated. I bought this along time ago used and the previous owner muddled with everything and well I have never flown this heli yet. Now it seems Venom -aircorps.com does not exist

Here you go - see the attachment. It is from page 7 of the manual.

Good luck with the Venom VNR3D. I have the full manual but its over 8MB. Just send me a PM if you'd like me to email you.

Not the Micro. It is for the Night-Ranger 3D with 570mm Rotor span.

Hey guys. Sorry to dredge up a two year old thread, but my neighbor found an Exceed RC Eagle 50 in the house his mother bought, and since he knows I am into RC planes, he gave it to me to fix up and (hopefully) teach him to fly it. My only CP heli experience is on Phoenix, but I will loan him my disk and DX6i and let him get a feel for it on the sim before he ever touches the actual heli. Assuming I can even get it to fly, lol.

Anyways, first off, the Exceed Eagle 50 is a clone of the Night Ranger 3D, right?

You may be right and I'm the wrong person to answer...but I think the Night Ranger and Walkera #52-1 are "related".

Yep. They seem to be pretty close, if not the exact same. If yall think I should start my own thread, let me know, but since the heli I have is so very similar to this one, I figured I would piggyback off this thread.

So, more questions:

1. The flybar needs replacing. What pitch are the flybar paddles supposed to be set to, and how do I set them? Actually, same question about main blades...how do you set proper pitch?

2. On the first picture below, you see a linkage I drew an arrow to. That link is supposed to have a little ball on it for a ball-linkage to snap to. As you can see, its broken off, so I need a new one. However, I can't seem to find that part for sale. The Walkera 22E, Venom Night Ranger 3D, and Exceed RC Eagle 50 all seem to be the same heli. I have tried finding that piece one all three aircraft, and I haven't had any luck. Could yall please point me in the right direction to get that part ordered?

3. On the second picture, I circled a collet. The set screw is stripped out in it, and it won't tighten. When I spin up the motor, the main blades don't turn. Something is slipping. Is that where the slipping is occuring?

If yall couldn't tell...I really don't know much about helis. Planks are so much simpler

Thanks so much for the help!

Hi All,
My buddy is going to give me his Venom NR 3d. It was mine once but I needed money so I sold it to him. I am sure it has been on a shelf for the last 4 years and will need new batteries and probably some other parts. I read I can use a 3s lipo in it but I am not sure which one I can use. What are you guys using in it? I also have another dumb question I have a Flysky TH9x TX and Rx. Is it possible to use that Rx and Tx with it? I have been flying some FP helis for a little while and some quads and am kind of excited to try a CP. Thanks for any info you can give me.

I picked up a Venom night ranger 3d that has been crashed for $10.

What is a good source of parts for these?

Will the walkeria 22 parts work and where can I find those?

Thanks.
