PostPost subject: Big Lama Tech Tips
Reply with quote

Hi All... just a note here. Though the forum may show my tech tip posts getting several hits the videos themselves are not. I can see the number of actual views in my YouTube control panel. I've also asked that people at least click the like button as well if they feel the tech tips are of any use or even dislike if not to no avail. I've only had feedback from one or two people.
It takes me a lot of time and effort out of my day to do these and if they aren't going to be viewed then there is no sense in me doing them. For now unless the traffic pics up and I get some sort of feedback I'll be holding off on any further ones for the time being. Thanks.......

What's the ratio of views to likes Tony?

If you get more than 5.0% you're doing well. I see on part #3 you've got 28 views and 3 likes (that's 10.7%). My Big Lama battery test has 339 views and 0 likes (that's 0.0%). I think that it is the views that really count, many people just don't bother to click the like button (even when asked)!

On the other front a video of mine showing a rather attractive niece of mine has 40 views and 2 likes (that's 5.0%) Shocked .
Perhaps if you found a young lady to smile sweetly and hold the heli you might get more likes.

Passing thoughts,

Tom.

You may have a good idea there Tom. Laughing Actually what surprises me is the forum posts gets a LOT more views than the videos themselves here and one other forum. Not sure why they click the link if they have no plans on watching the tech tip lol> Confused

Could be Tony, that most of us like to see the 'Posts Since Last Visit', just to make sure that we don't miss anything of interest - even if we don't have the model. It's really just human curiousity.

Tombos' right Tony I hardly ever bother saying whether I like something or dislike it ,like most people just viewing is probably liking well enough .

PostPost subject: DX6i Gyro Tip
Reply with quote

I find that as the battery runs down to around mid-charge in my co-axials I need to apply rudder trim to hold a heading. Seems a common fault with a co-ax.

I found that the DX6i Gyro gain will 'Trim' the co-ax and I now have Rate 0 = 50% and Rate 1 = 47.5% on Gyro settings. Normal flight (and all setting up) is in Rate 0.

When the rotation starts to need constant left rudder correction, I switch to rate 1 and the craft straightens up. Trim is virtually not now required. Make sure that you switch back to rate 0 when you change batteries or you'll get a left turn at lift off.

N.B. You may need to adjust this setting to suit your machine/batteries. The lower the rate the faster the left turn. Above 50% the higher the rate the faster the right turn

Tom.

Might work well Tom for those who run in heli mode, but that won't work for me in arco mode. One of these days I hope to find out what the issue is as some can, but some can't? I have 1 ship torn down right now awaiting a new 3 in 1 and hope to have a tablet in the next week or so. Maybe we can get together on Skype finally and discuss it. It has to be in a setting, the ones you gave me, but I sure can't solve it? In the meantime I just simply fly the stick instead of trying to trim in flight and I don't have any issue with that thus far.
