D1 - RADIO - I keep
hearing that the Esky radio is not very good - Why is this ?
thing I need to do here is to cover myself by saying that the
reasons I give here are not solely my own, but also those of most
other RC heli pilots.
1 - Esky
decided with the Belt CP to provide a helicopter that they could
claim was 3D capable. To be even close to be being capable of 3D,
the radio required a 2nd set of curves for Throttle and Pitch that
would meet the requirements of inverted flight, which meant a
throttle curve that maintained as high a head speed as possible at
both full and ZERO throttle. The Pitch curve also had to
provide a range of at least -10 to +10 degrees.
Esky did this
by adding what they call the IDLE-UP switch, which takes you from a
normal set of curves that give zero to full throttle and a pitch
range of -4 to +8 to those above.
this causes is that because the ESKY ESC has no acceptable soft
start mechanism, as son as you switch into IDLE UP mode, the motor
spools up as fast as possible, often tearing the teeth off the main
great many new pilots have discovered this to their cost, so do NOT
TRY THIS SWITCH unless you know exactly what to expect..
2 - Both sets
of curves are fixed in the radio, so you cannot adjust them at all.
3 - There is
no provision for setting or using dual rates.
4 - The
throttle trims inside the the radio are often so badly adjust on
delivery that you cannot get full throttle at all.
5 - The
potentiometers used for both sticks often get scratchy very rapidly,
giving poor control of the helicopter.
