Logo 16 won't hover out of ground effect?

Post by herb » Sat, 11 Aug 2001 17:28:31



I've just finished this model and can't get it to hover out of ground effect.
Set up is

16 x 2400ma sanyo cells
Plettenberg motor set at +1 on timing marks
Symmetrical carbon blades
Ccpm swash
Pitch:
-1 at low
+5 at hover
+8 at top

Power
0% at low
80% at hover
100 at top

What's wrong?  Blades? Motor timing? Curves? I'm baffled
Any help greatly appreciated
Herbie

Hi Herbie,

The people that sold you the kit might be able to help.  I have LOGO 20,
don't know much about the LOGO 16 power setups, but some important info
that you could also provide is:
-motor model
-ESC
-overall weight
-pinion
-blade length
-hover rpm
-type of battery, who build the pack, and how (end to end?)
-what type of connector
-charger
-is the motor bogging down as this enemic performance occurs?

Have you tried tweeking the throttle settings (for a given pitch) up or down?

I won't be around to help with my limited expertise, but I feel that this
info would help others try.

Cheers!

Glen

What kind of Plettenburg motor and what pinion are you using?
