Raptor 30 Wah Wah is the term used to decribe the sound that comes from the autorotation hub engageing and disengagine from turning the mainshaft due to a poor running motor in the mid-range. It is usually induced during descents. Just say Wah Wah Wah Wah Wah in about a seconds time. That is what it sounds like. Many people including myself believe the best solution is to put a load on the autorotation unit by using a slipper. Or, you can chase the needles around richening the motor up.

Raptor 30 Woof is the condition where the mainblades go violently out of track occasionally stricking the boom in flight("Poof"). Most often this is caused by using blades with an unstable chordwise CG AND slop in the rotor head. With the V1&39;s slop it was never a good idea to run unstable blades unless you work the slop out of the blade grips, cyclic control, and lower the headspeed.
Technically it is "aeroelastic instability" which allows the blade to "couple" or resonate in pitch in a multiple of the rotation rate. The Raptor trailing edge control arm can make it much more sensitive because of the "Delta" result. "flipping" the head goes a long way in "fixing" it

You need JavaScript enabled to view it. > Hello, I understand the failsafe issues with the Governor so that you do not blow the engine. But how much of a risk is there to actually have your engine blow up on you. In model helicopters, there will always be some load from the fan and factory heli's tend to have somewhat conservative gearing so with a stock motor running low or no nitro as is common in Europe, it would take a pretty …

Normally newbies never complains about this... try in order (first item are costing nothing, last solution is the most expensive): Adjust your pitch curves (too much ° pitch asked ?),Adjust your throttle curves,Add more nitromethan, try 15% then 30%, but be careful of the fuel price and lifetime of engine!Switch for an exhaust pipe, (Hatori...) +5 to +7% increaseUse smaller blade, (505mm instead of 550 mm),Change for a better motor, (OS46 or OS50 instead of 30''size) For more basics advices, …

nullThere are a number of good entry level heli&39;s on the market at varying prices, such as the TT Raptor 30 and the Kyosho Caliber 30 Some of the points to consider are: 1- availability of parts (be it from your local LHS or mail order or net order (helps when you have a mishap and break something) 2- the availability of assistance (your choice may be a more problem prone then something else, so it will help if you …

The term super servo is used to describe servos capable of running at high data frame rates (6ms per frame or less). Examples of this type of servo are the JR2700G and Futaba-S9250. The use of super servos is highly recommended as they allow the gyro to fully exploit its fast response. WARNING: Use of the super servo facility with servos not designed to accept the high frame rate will result in damage to the servo. Below is a non …

H1, H2, H3, H4? Le H1, c'est quand le plateau cyclique est commandé par : un servo pour le rouli, un servo pour le tangage, et un servo pour le pas collectif. Le H2, c'est quand le plateau cyclique est commandé par: 2 servos pour le rouli ( un en push et un en pull ), un servo pour le tangage, et ces trois servos montent et descendent en même temps pour le collectif. Le H3, c'est quand les trois …

the future is now here! Reality I do not own currently a FMA copilot, but I plan to acquire one as soon as a CCPM version will be available. I want to use it only in some case: panic or brain short circuit. Many people complains about this new gadget, arguing that it is better to learn alone, yes this is true. On the other side, investing $100 is not an issue if you avoid 1 or 2 crashs. Fma …

Why using nitro ? (Article from Ian Mc Donald) HIGH PERFORMANCE HELICOPTER FUELS Nitromethane: can truly be deemed "Liquid Horsepower" for model helicopters. For additional power and generally smoother running, our flying machines can&39;t really afford to live without it! If the engine performance of your R/C helicopter is proving to be a bit of a problem for a whole tank of fuel, and you suffer from overheating as the tank empties during hover, or the idle is difficult to …
