I screwed up my Belt cp right out of the box. I was spinning it up and accidently hit the left toggle which the book says is for inverted flight. The main gear is now totally stripped out. Did the motor reverse? I don't understand the function of that toggle, can somebody enlighten me?

Hi. I don't think the motor reversed because there is nothing out there in the current RC heli world that would reverse your motor in mid-flight (that I know of). Inverted flight involves changing the pitch of the blade, not the direction of the motor its self. What did you mean the main gear is totally stripped out? Like all the teeth was worn out? Did you crash the heli or did it not even lift off the ground?

Maybe, it might have had nothing to do with the toggle. If the main gear's teeth are all work down, maybe there was something wrong with the assembly.

I received my belt cp a couple weeks ago and I had a problem with it spinning out of control and that was my problem. Make sure all the toggles on left and right or off. Toggle to the back. I went to my local hobby shop and a young kid there had it up the first time within minutes. He checked it out and I had the left toggle in the middle. When you hit this toggle the moter goes to full speed. This is so you can use it inverted with the pitch. Hope this helps. First time I tried it was today. 1 Dec. Hovered right out of the box. This is awsome.

What happened to be more specific is I had the rotor spinning just below take off speed. When I hit the toggle I guess the motor went to full speed and the heli began to shake violently so I powered it off immediately. End result is several teeth on the main gear got rubbed out, and the center of the gear cracked around the bearing. It also streched the belt a little so it wasn't tight enough to spin the tail rotor but i was able to adjust that. Not a very good maiden flight! The manual is kind of vague about the transmitter.

I accidently hit the left toggle too but lucky I didn't throttle up when I hit the left toggle, the Heli spin and I shut is off fast enough so nothing happens wheww almost Shocked , but my right toggle is not hold fix when switch on, it pop back to where it was, any idea how to fix that?

Anybody know how the HOV. PIT (left) on the transmitter is work, and the right trimmer (PIT. TRIM)?

Does the Gyro Switch need to be shut off all the time during the flight? When does it can be turn on? The manual didn't seem to explain much aout the transmitter

I think the right toggle is supposed to work that way mine does the same thing. Although the manual says its a trainer switch I have no idea what that means.

Trainer switch? My understanding of that switch is that you can hook up a friend to control your RC through your transmitter. Think of yourself as the Trainer at that point, I suppose, and your buddy as the noob. Then, if/when things get out of hand you can flip the switch and take over flight from him and save the heli/plane from damage. (hope i explained that right.)

you are right Eisblade I email the web that I got my heli and ask them and this is what they told me:

The trainer switch cannot stay on. To use this switch, you need to have two transmitters connected together. Under the condition that two transmitters are connected, when you press on trainer swith, the other transmitter can operate, while when you do not press it, your transmitter can operate. In this way, if an experienced and an unexperienced fly together, when there may be a crash, the trainer, experienced person, can unhold the switch and give a help immediately.

When you fly the helicopter, so actually you do not need to press the trainer switch on, otherwise, your transmitter cannot work normally.

cheers

Thanks, rcnono. I'm still learning like the rest though it's nice to be able to help where/when possible.
