Thanks for advice to date. Since I can hover this heli with stock TX I would
like to use it with the DX6i and today finally came up with settings that
match the stock TX settings in normal mode so I can continue to learn to
fly the SR with the DX6i and still keep it somewhat tame.

The only thing I didn't like was I found the head too mushy from the factory
and I felt like I was chasing the heli with the remote. I added a tapered
bearing washer to each side with the taper facing the 'O' ring and found that
it tightened up the head enough to get better response but not so much
that the heli was shaking. Now I feel better response and control from the
heli. Managed to try out the DX6i settings and hover in garage ok, with
training stix on of course

No backyard flying today....too darn windy.....probably would blow the heli
to Signal Point NFLD. Bye the way, is a great place to be if you intend to
be there not chasing heli's not withstanding

Re: New to CP with Blade SR need advice

I like the idea of reducing the head speed. The part about making the rotor head into a fixed pitch head makes a bit of sense but I would like to add my two cents. Limiting the pitch range to 0-7 degrees instead of -3 to 10 degrees is the way I tamed my MX400 as it was very pitch sensitive. The Blade SR that I work on has a pitch range of 0-7 to make the landing much more gentle. Limiting the pitch range more than is recommended in factory instructions helps a lot but it will not change the lack of cyclic feel that plagues the Blade SR. When I put in a control input I expect the heli to respond to my input at least a little and that is the problem I have had with this heli. Alter the pitch curve to make it more gentle but don't overlook cyclic responce as the combination of the two is what make the heli fly to your liking.
