Thanks Guys. I'm sure he read my post the wrong way. I believe it was about 4 or 5 months ago (maybe sooner, i forget) RCG did some retooling of their site. If you click on your own user name look for "find all attachments by Chap1012." You can find all the pics you've all ever submitted. After looking at my own "find all attachments by Chap1012" it quickly dawned on me. Be careful of the pictures you submit

Now, let me check you guys out

Mike.

PS: It's good to know that someone is listening to my site tool tips.

Depends on the weight of the battery. I was flying a 1250ma 2 cell on mine about 2 years ago. And it mounted perfectly into my Extreme skids.

Hey guys. I got a CX2 last week used but rarely flown. I've been working on the settings, but got stuck. It seems to want to do this pendulum thing. It's hard to keep in a hover without the back and forth swing. seems to fly okay forward and banking, turning etc. Also feels down on power. I had to fiddle with the motor for the top rotor for awhile before it would come off the ground too. any insight or more info needed?

When they fly this way it is almost always related to the flybar. It probably isn't moving freely. You should be able to do what they refer to as the finger tap test on it. It should bounce back and forth freely a few times with a gentle tap.

When the heli is doing the toilet bowl effect (TBE) it is rarely anything else.

He might be discribing a 'tail twitch' rather than tbe. If so, wouldn't adjustment of the gain trimmer pot be appropriate to fix it?

If he is having tail drift or more severe tbe then wouldn't he adjust the main motor proprtional mix pot?

Ranger body mod


Been lurking on this forum for a while........interesting stuff.

Got a ranger body (abused) with a bunch of CX2 stuff I bought and almost threw it away but worked on it a bit and here she is.

Used window screen on all the windows. Wide stance landing gear accepts larger, wider batteries.

Too bad about the condition of the canopy as I really like the JetRanger one a lot. I happened to see one on Ebay for about 1/2 the original price.
I see you've got the $$$$$ aftermarket frame. That should stiffen things up for you.
What's going on in the middle of the boom? Is that a weight or a splice or what?

The Microheli frame rocks! Nice motors also. I too used to run those same knock off $4 Rx's. Congrats on the great buy.

Sure you can. Pop the link off the ball going to the flybar. Sand off any plastic slag around the ball. Pop off the flybar and in the center of the flybar do the same. Careful sanding getting the plastic slag off will help. Now all you need is some plastic friendly lube. I use Break Free CLP.

Maybe you want to consider the "bullet mod."

Hi Guys, I just Spekrumized my V4 with the EFLH 1024 brick. On the "prop" adjustment, which way to you turn it. In the direction of spin? Or opposite of the direction of spin? I would experiment but, I'd like to get this done in one batt before the wind picks up again. Thanks...

Mike.

Fly em if ya got em.

I think it is opposite of the lama Mike. Turn it in the direction of the spin. See if it gets better. Lee
