I'm reducing the size of the 2s Rx LiPo from 2500 mAh to 1100 mAh. For one flight, the charger typically puts back 200 mAh. The power consumption is lower than in earlier helis since the HV brushless servos (Outage Torq) are very efficientA Hyperion 2s 35C 1100 mAh LiPo weights about 71 grams. For comparison, a Hercules superBEC is 40g plus wiring.IMG_2731.JPGHere is my current V-bar setup:

the kit comes with a 10 tooth pinion (6mm)there are 4mm, 5mm, 6mm, 8mm, 10 mm screws, so better pay attentionMost M3 screws use about five turns (count to check, whether the length is correct)The length of a button head screw is the thread, excluding the buttonThe length of a countersunk head screw (those with a cone-shaped head and matching pre-drilled holes) are measured including the head, from end to end.The lowest main shaft bearing mount and the front bevel gear mounting

Alright, it won't win an industry award for "best graphics". It's a little weekend hack to brush up my C++.
It might still score an award for "most annoying computer game", if taken too seriously...

Colored spots pop up and disappear in a regular rhythm.

NEW: chinese weights mod
Get a screw kit, use two washers and a screw as shown in the picture.
Reduces load on the rudder servo. You'll have to use less gyro gain, that's normal.
NEW: Radius arm mod
The two little brass washers act as a bearing between radius arm and washout
A conventional flybar acts as power steering. And ”power” steering indeed - on a .90 heli, it may take away a hundred watts or more from the main engine.
In a flybarless setup, the swash servos need to do the same job. They are more efficient than the flybar, but still they need to work very hard.
This article discusses some typical problems that can limit the performance of a FBL heli.

The swash servos remain one of the
