I have a set of wood main rotor blades that are about 1" too long. They had no root support, so I fashioned some doublers for top and bottom of hardwood plywood and fastened them with Rhino glue. I got my pitch gage in the mail a couple of days ago. I have a jig that locks the flybar in position. I levelled the flybar and set the collective pitch for "0". It goes 4.5 negative and 8.4 positive. The The cyclic move about 4.5 each way. The engine is inverted, does anyone have any tricks to start an inverted engine?

Re: Kyosho 30 SR-T from England

The main rotor diameter is suppose to be 1200mm, the head bolt hole to bolt hole is 60mm, that leaves 570mm per blade. These blades are 545mm from bolt hole to tip. I am going to tie it down and run it before I spend any more money on it. All I want is basic flight. Do you have any rotors that will work?

Re: Kyosho 30 SR-T from England

There are only two sets of blades that work on this machine and they are
500mm only. They are the original foam core from Kyosho ( now a collector item) and Mikado wooden blades. Either way, the grips need to be glued properly and then the blades need to be balanced.
Yes, there is a trick to starting the engine. the idle mixture needs to be set perfectly. This is done by blowing thru the fuel feed line when the carb is almost closed. You should hear a slight hissing sound. This goes for the 28H, 32F and 32H.

Re: Kyosho 30 SR-T from England

I actually have a set of wooden blades for a Mikado Logo 20 as well that may work.
Basic flight is great but I can tell you, a computer radio makes it a lot easier to set up a helicopter.
I used a futaba 9C for all my helicopters...for all my aircraft actually... and I am not going to be needing it anymore.
BTW...I work in Belleville so I am over here all the time.
