First of all, if you buy the HK or any other brand, please replace the plastic end piece with a wheel collar(ask me how I know).

Problems:
Since you have to arm the esc, the throttle has to be off position. So, what that tells you is that you need 2 modes to get it to use reverse.
Mode 1 just handle forward motion.
Mode 2 When you flip switch to get reverse,the following conditions must exist. The engine speed needs to be the same and blade angle better be the same, or you will blow it up due to stress loads. Hence, center of throttle becomes 0 blade angle and some fixed rpm.

I always changed mode in air and throttle at half. Maybe you could play with the radio to set up mode two so it spins up the motor and jumps the blade angle to zero. That to me would be very dangerous start up.

If you go to Realflight, the sim is set up the same way. Mode 1 starts at 0 rpm and in mode 2 start at 5000 rpm and goes to 9000 to account for blade angle increases. The plane is the "Flatout with v pitch". Best I could do is go down slow, stop it nose down, too heavy to back up. The big trick to it is the airflow must be over all three control surfaces and ailerons must move + and - 80-85 degrees. His plane,setup cost an arm and a leg, so I ended it.
I like to design and fly unique planes.

Yes, but remember NOT to use any swash mixing or other heli wizardry the Tx offers. The throttle and pitch curves should only move the collective servo and the motor.


even i have a hard time thinking about how this would be setup...just as in a collective mix i think the throttle/motor would have to be set at a certain RPM and then the pitch on the prop adjusted by the collective servo...would be interesting to mess with...and if you set it as a normal mix you then add pitch and throttle at the same time..so your acceleration could be pretty staggering on this in normal mode....

Here is the setup for. I was fortunate that I could have a 10 point graph on my radio for motor and blade angle to reduce the stresses. So rather than have a "V shape", it ended up as a graph.

my DX8 has a graph system in place for pitch and throttle modes..so know i could program it easy now that i see the mechanical setup....i have a 3D hawk i may think about trying this on...gotta contemplate...

that video is really cool squishy..ive seen a few now...im just surprised by how much aileron imput he had to have while hovering upside-down.
Crashing is part of learning. If you don't have any, it's like getting an F
Hey, I'd really appreciate it if you checked out my youtube or even subscribed!
