Pitch & Throttle curve settings

Pitch & Throttle curve settings

Post by GEORGE DELMORA » Mon, 26 Jun 2000 04:00:00



I'm new to helis and need a good solid base for seting my throttle and pitch
curves. The catch is; I'm using a JR 642 which only has 3-point curves for
hover and stunt and then throttle-hold. (low, mid & high stick position) I'm
ready for FF, but want to make sure when I flip to stunt that I have some
real close settings that will allow FF. I'm flying a stock Raptor. Any help
would be appreciated.   My current hover curves are low= 0% , 0 degrees,
mid=50%, 6 degrees and high=100%, 10 degrees.

My Raptor prefers something closer to 5.2 degress in hover to get a
high enough head speed. The stock TT36 won't pull 10 degreses without
burning off head speed, 9 is more realistic. Watch out for overspeeding
on descent and keep checking the belt tension. I had to  put a wrap of
electrical tape around the boom at the point where it enters the frame
to prevent it from slipping.

Enjoy!

Jim:

What do you use or how do you adjust the belt tension?  I know HOW to
do it (by sliding the boom in and out) but I don't know what I'm
looking at?  What is tight enough?

Now there's something you don't hear very much of. A crutch that bites.
It's usually the other way round in these here parts :-)
