Helicopter How To

After a few members told me about these servos, I hit up Jason over at Banggood to see if I could get my hands on them. He agreed and sent them to me. In the video below, I explain the servos which are already installed in my SE V2. If it could have gone wrong, it did go wrong on this video. Including completely smashing my helicopter into the ground on a test flight, but this was not the fault of the servos, they did exactly what they were supposed to do. Have a watch and tell me what you...
Since the digital pitch gauges have come out, I have noticed that some are having issues getting the pitch correctly setup on their helicopter. In this video, I show you how to properly calibrate and use a digital pitch gauge. Please post any questions, comments and/or suggestions in the comments below. [MEDIA=youtube]S3Z3VudHO68[/MEDIA]
Hello and welcome to the All New RCH Helicopter How To section! This section has taken the place of the Helpful How-To that was in the forum before. In an effort to keep the forum clean and keep the information easy to access, we have moved everything into this section. On the left side, after you clicked on the How To link, you will notice that there are now more links just below it all with blue "+" signs to the left of them. If you click on those + signs, it will open up the content...
We get asked this question a lot . What is the center frequency of such and so servo. Not just helis but plane guys and quad guys need that info cause its a part of programming your gyro So here is a very simple and extremely reliable way -= BEASTX - BE ABSOLUTE STABLE =- Even if you aren't using beastx ... That's ok... Servo specs don't change gyro to gyro. Just go to this website and select version (highest) .. Right now it's 3.0 Then select language And it'll...
When you are building your helicopter, you take the time to install all of the servos correctly, make sure the shafts are perfect, but some over look at just how important it is to set the proper gear mesh. If you set the mesh too loose, you run the risk of stripping the gears. If you set the mesh too tight, then not only will you put unneeded stress on the motor, battery and ESC, but also the risk of overheating and melting the main gear. Some say that you can use a piece of paper...
Hello everyone, The flybar head setup video is finally here. In this video, I to into more depth on the head than I do in any other video I have made. From adjusting the swash mix, to adjusting the links on the head, to leveling the swash, it's all covered in this video. If you have any questions, post them below. This is a pretty long video, but it's worthwhile if you are just starting out.
I get 100's of people telling me there heli spun like crazy when they tried to take off. Well with this quick check video, that should never happen again.
There are a number of things that you need to pay close attention to when building a clone helicopter. You MUST check every bolt and nut on the helicopter to make sure it's tight. You MUST put thread lock on every bolt going into metal. And if you are running a TT tail, you MUST replace the tail gears with Align! In this video I show the process that I go through when building a clone helicopter. What I order right off the bat, what I replace and how I get the head and tail as smooth as...
The Align DFC helicopter has gained popularity in the last year and with that comes the need to point out some things that are easily over looked. 1. Don't forget to take the head completely apart, including the arms off the grips and remove all oil that may be on the head. And let me tell you, Align uses a LOT of oil on these parts. this also includes the feathering shaft, most importantly, the threads IN the feathering shaft. This goes for ALL heads. 2. Threading the plastic link...

I have written this many times in different threads but it always gets buried in the posts and is very hard to find. It's also one of the most asked questions here on RCH. So I thought I would do a dedicated STICKY to explain exactly how to setup correct blade pitch on a CCPM helicopter. YOU WILL NEED A PITCH GAUGE! If you don't have a pitch gauge, GET ONE! It's a MUST HAVE tool for any CCPM Helicopter owner First and foremost you must set your Tx up correctly. Go into your pitch...
Building a “Not So cheap†Helicopter I am sure that you have read our “Cheapest helicopter buildâ€, and you say to yourself “I don’t want a cheap helicopter, but I don’t want to spend $500 eitherâ€. That is exactly what this article is all about. I know that I would never purchase the cheap helicopter that I intended to keep for a while. I would rather spend a little extra now, and be happy for quite a while. Well I can tell you now, anything with a plastic grip is a cheap...
Time and time again I get asked what the best helicopter is to start out with. And the answer may not be as easy as you think. If you have never flown anything before, including planes, then you need to start out with a coax helicopter. Why a coax? Because they are the most stable of all of the helicopter. The Blade mCX is a great helicopter to start out with. It's small, it's 4 channel, and you will be able to learn your orientation with it. The next best thing about the coax helicopters...
Hey everyone. I thought that I would make up a list of everything that someone would need to get into the great hobby of flying R/C Helicopters. Electric, or Battery powered is far easier than nitro. With a nitro helicopter, the ambient temperature has very little effect on how it runs. But, Humidity will cause it to run way rich, or way lean. I have seen a motor go from running in a race lean condition, a front blows through, and it's running pig rich. It's a headache to learn how to do the...
