400 - How/Why
do I set the pitch to zero at mid throttle as I keep seeing
This is a
thorny question that is always being asked, but not often answered
correctly, or in sufficient detail.
consider doing this, you must do the full mechanical setup first.
This is covered in this Q&A area and you can read it by clicking
Some of the
logic about the zero pitch is already covered in that answer, but I
will explain it in a little more detail here.
the best kept secrets abut R/C helicopters is the mechanical
setup, and it really is crucial to getting any of them to fly
anywhere near reasonably. Once you have done that however, the
(almost) last step is to check and get the blades set to a pitch of
zero degrees with the throttle stick set to give you 50%
What you are
actually doing here is trying to get the swash plate to be exactly
central on its maximum movement up and down the main shaft. By doing
so, it means that the pitch changes you eventually program into you
radio to actually fly with will be accurate either side of the zero
pitch position. If the swash plate is not centred like this, you
will find that the pitch settings you put into your pitch curve will
not be correct in the final test of flying, they will be biased by
the offset of the swash from is centre position.
