ye, thanks for the tip. the coax copters is great for their stability and forgiving characteristics.
but i think i can handle the belt.
i flew the shuttle sxx with no problem back in the days, and on simulator i have no problem hovering, hovering nose agaisnt me, hovering upside down, with the sharpest 3d copters.
so i should be able to handle the belt, i just need to throw the stock radio in the bin and get a setup i can feel familiar with on my futaba.

edit:

wow, this mystical gyro switch actually reveals its a quite advanced one.
back in the hirobo days, all gyros but the msot expensive ones was mechanical, and only proprotional regulators (meaning that if you kick the tail, the gyro "counterkick" on the tail rotor).
but it appears the switch on the radio is switching on and off integral gyro stabilization.
meaning that if you kick the tail, the gyro will integrate the acceleration of the movement, and not only "counterkick" the tail, but also adjust tail back to its original position before the "kick".
effectively a headlock, literally. i thought that was just a marketing hype word, but it really is a head locking gyro

genious
i also found that with the integral turned off, and gyro gain adjusted high, the gyro WILL NOT WORK.
i guess thats where i screwed up.
thats a bad case of design error, if its not a error only on mine.

Thanks wrather!

I did the design on the add-on's and created the idea of
a new look for the LAMA SA-315B (Special Edition) 40th anniversary this year.

My first heli, my first scale project and first hovering the LAMA
with out any stabilisation system. I am at my 50 mins of hovering and
and many approach exercices on a helipad on only 18 mins
logtime experiences on a helicopter.

Took me a year to acheive slowly. Working closely with my buddy scale master builder and flyer. Life could'nt have been better for me with
such experimented expert & viewing all my doing and supporting my built.

All the electronic's and conversion was made by this great master builder.
So I was in good hand in all view. When the time came to test the LAMA,
my buddy took care of all ajustments, hovering, foward flight, till it came to what we expect when you do scale flying.

The LAMA since the photo above as change greatly. Since I was trying many design's and testing on her while the time of the photo.

Now here is
how she look's like. Been flying hover since the 17 of september,,, the time I took my real first hover for real and the instructor master flyer beside me. All when better then expected for me,, and my Buddy who was really suprise how I was doing on the pilot in command seat. I was also.

Well to make a short story short,,, he,he,,
It flies like a dream and till now,, and will not jump any stages on the learning. Go slow,, it is why I'm in this hobby...

I come from the front seat on the fully scale jet's environememt.

Enjoy the LAMA all !
And if you feel like doing this LAMA as your next project,,,
Go for it,,, you'll have the time of your life doing so ...

We have tested new biger blades and all is just awesome,,, great lift
effect and will be add later for me to fly with those biger one !

Were you working with THE Scalemaster himself? Was it John?
If so, I bought his unfinished AH-6 giant scale heli.... the guy is amazing. He builds off the top of his head! Very seldom any plans and his helicopters and fuel jet turbine planes are incredible. He tried to tell me I didn't need the mixing gear because the AH-6 has 5 blades and it's very stable.

I've also flown other helicopters and have no problems with orientation... but this thing is so scale (and expensive) I'd have an apoplectic fit if something happened to it. I may have already posted pictures of it... but it's just so cool... I may post them again! lol

If you talk to John... tell him Buzz in Daytona said..."Making progress here!"

Ok, here's another of Scalemaster's creations. Lots of work to do yet... but it's the only one in the world. The AH6 .... cannons and rocket launchers will be wired for light and sound.

This is NOT the skimpy kit of the same helicopter. This is a one off design.

As the thread has been resurected I might as well show off my latest heli. It's a Compass 7HV Ultimate. This is a 700 class electric heli, power is by 12s 5000mAh LiPo.

I got the kit at a bargain price on eBay but completing it isnt going to be cheap because everthing is expensive for these big helis, the cost of batteries and servo makes your eyes water. Lets hope I dont crash it

this is a picture google came up with, mine is the same:

Very nice JPF......Bet it will need a Scorpion and Castle class motor/ESC combo....What Type of FBL Control unit do you intend to use...curious about the gyro?

You ain't kidding about the $$$ investment......seems the ARF (belt drive) kit for $699.00 is just the beginning...toss in another + $900.00 for decent electronics......and keep her out of the turf, she'll be a great investment.....I'd be sweating giant bullets on the maiden with this one..

I got the combo kit complete with Compass' own monstrous SZ-4926 motor rated at 160A and 7000W. I picked the kit up for less than half the UK retail price, so that's a good start.

I already had a spare Castle Edge 120HV, so all I need is servos and FBL controller.

I've order three RJX FS-0521 HV servos for cyclic and a single RJX FS-0521T HV for the tail. The RJX servos seem top be an excellent spec and while not exactly 'cheap' aren't as eye wateringly expensive as other high-voltage/high-speed/high-torque servos.

For the FBL controller I'm just going to use an Align 3GX. Many don't rate them but I've had no problem and I know how to set them up, which is half the battle. I'll use a couple of DSMX satellites rather than a conventional Rx, I already have those spare.

The motor is a bit of a problem. Turns out that there was a batch of motors with magnets that came loose, and the motor i have is one of them. All of those motors were replaced under warantee but I think the seller pulled a bit of a 'fast one' and kept the good motor to sell separately (he's already put it on eBay) and gave me the 'dud'. One magnet was loose before i even turned the motor.

Fortunately it's not so hard to fix, it just needs some suitable Loctite (I'm using Loctite 480) running in around the magnets to fix them securely.
