Beginner Stuck with Ikarus Eco 8

Beginner Stuck with Ikarus Eco 8

Post by Derek O'Callagha » Sun, 21 Nov 1999 04:00:00



I recently purchased an Ikarus Eco 8 from Germany. This is my first. I know
nothing.

In the kit there was a Graupner | JR FM314 /35Mhz Remote control unit. I
have assembled the Heli Ok
but I am seriously stuck on setting up the electronics.
I have questions like

What connects to what which ports on the controller should I connect each
servo to. ??
There is a safety fire up sequence to enable the prop. (Ikarus Heli 4000
Digital) anyone know about this. ??
Is there an english manual available on the WEB for the Graupner remote ??

Could anyone reccomend a good book or two to help me get started ??

Assistance in any of this would be much appreciated.

Many Thanks

Derek
