View Full Version : ECO 8 Problems Need HELP
My friend still hasn't got his heli to fly. He says that when he tries to lift it off the ground, it spins right even tho he is giving it full left tail rotor. I hope some one knows the answer, he's getting very irritable. I've told him to buy a WINGO but he's too stubborn.
Are you sure about the gyro's calibration ?
At the beginning, a 75 % value is a good choice.
Another reason may come from a bad tailrotor neutral. A best advise is to measure the value like indicated in the notice.
How did your friend hover the Eco ? To avoid parasit effects, it's better to lift him a good time and then reduce power at a half meter from the ground (or less depending the pilot's flying experience)
Best regards, Vince
Can we assume the Tail Rotor drive belt has been twisted the right way?
Are the Tail blades on the right way around ?
Is the Gyro operating the right way?
Is the tail servo operating the right way?
Is there too much friction in the tail drive?
Pully tight on the tail drive shaft?
So many things to check - if you've got one that works, try comparisons to see if any of the above are apparent.
