got my blade quick question

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hey Guys, Got a blade cp today, I haven't taken it off the ground yet, but if I give it some power on the ground it just wants to spin left no matter how much rudder i give it.. ( I was trying to do the thing where you keep it straight in a box) I can never get it to go left. Any ideas?

I don't know much about the blades receiver/gyro, but it sounds to me like your gyro might be reversed, or, your tail rotor motor might be running backwords?
you don't need CNC if you are handy with a torch.

Did you get the manual? It shows how to set it up.
There is 2 adjustments on the 4 in 1 2 small screws
One is for main motor to tail mixing the other is for gyro gain
1st turn the gyro gain down (turn screw counter clockwise)
2nd Adjust mixer to the point that tail stays straight
3rd adjust gyro gain until tail wags in hover then just back it off a bit until wag stops.
Read the blade cp thread on rc groups and do the fuse mod in the motor wires.
The 4 in 1 on these is very! very! very! suseptable to power spikes, such as upsetting or banging into something that causes the rotors to stop while power (throttle) is still on.
The 4 in 1 is the most expensive part of the whole set up.

I recently read about someone putting a fuse in the main motor. It will save the 4 in 1. I'll find it in the next couple of days and post it. If you can use soldering iron, it's a good idea

The fuse thing comes from the thread mentioned in your previous thread.

Make sure you go to this site:

It will have you up and flying in no time. Also, there are some You Tube videos on how to setup the CP which are very helpful.

Hi Scottcas:

All the suggestions in the preceding posts have merit and should be considered, but as well, check to ensure that the the two little pins on the hub of the tail rotor actually engage the drive gear. The tail rotor is held against the drive gear by only a small piece of silicon tubing. If the tubing slides away from the tail rotor by as little as 2-3 mm, the tail rotor can disengage from the drive gear. You might not notice it because the rotor will spin as if all was normal, but as soon as you place any load on the rotor it becomes ineffective. A real simple fix if that's the problem. Good luck.

Thanks for the replies guys, I got it now, the little screw just needed a small adjustment. I also aligned the blades so it doesn't bounce all over the place now. haha
