orange74 hey nuttcaze just have to give a big thanks on your how to videos, iv'e had my falcon 40 for the last 4months and with the exception of several or quit a few crashes i have been very happy with this product first thing i did before learning to fly was buy some super skids, and superboom shorter flybar and paddles, crashes have been many but parts replacment few (1)rotorhead and (1)servo (1)main blade this thing is fairly crash resistant and i have found that out after trying to fly it over and over.being that i only have windows vista the e-sky trainer will not work on my computer. so it was seat of the pants flyin (very little stick movment)i found out. and lots of research on setup. i can now hover and land without mishap. sooooo, was wondering if the aftermarket mainshaft and cnc'd rotorhead for the honeybee would fit my falcon 40 or somthing that you might suggest and would also like to install some carbon blades, im not quit ready for the brushless setup($$$$) but would like to know if theirs a better battery setup for this model, and buy the way i did order spare parts like you had suggested in one of your vids (i really thought i was gonna need em)but you can never have to many xtras just in case. anyway thanks again and please keep the videos comin these helis are way more fun than my nitro truck and if i wouldnt have seen your video on youtube i never would have got a heli, always knew about em but they looked so complicated, anyway thanks again and happy fly'n.

Three weeks ago I got a Falcon 40 from XHeli. It worked perfectly well until a few day ago when it stopped working. I had just installed a SuperBoom and had to re-solder the tail motor. I tested it and everything worked fine. But then I tested it again a few hours later and it didn't work. It now behaves very much like if I plug in the battery without turning on the TX (servos twitching, blades sometimes randomly start up, and the receiver makes wierd noises). It won't register any of my control imputs, either. Do you think it might be a loose crystal or something else?

Thanks in advance,
Fox

P.S. This is my first heli.

Try removing and reseating thr crystals, but befire you put them back in, bend the pins just very slightly toward each other so they will fit in tighter. And be carefull to put the one marked Rx in the receiver and the one marked Tx in the transmiter.

Hope this helps,

Mark,
Right up my alley. I can't wait for your input here.
I have a Falcon 40 with a dead main motor and now hobbled up receiver. I replaced the motor using the stock motor from my HBK2 that smoked my receiver. DUH. I'm jonsing to get the '40 back into the 'air' (i.e., still in ground effect).

Nuttcaze, thank you for your extensive videos on the Falcon 40. I've been interested in this hobby for a long time and elected to begin with this model.

I've logged quite a few hours into the ClearView flight sim (also based on your recommendation), and last weekend, I decided to try getting my new helicopter off the ground.

I'm kicking myself for not thoroughly clearing my backyard, for the helicopter flew about two seconds before colliding with a metal post we use to hang some plants and a bird feeder. (I saw it there and thought to myself, "I need to watch out for that post." However... ) headbeat

Anyway, I thought I could save some time by bringing my busted main blades to my local hobby shop which specializes in RC planes and helicopters. Being new to the hobby, I thought that there would be blades from another manufacturer that would work. Instead, the shop workers looked at my main blades like I was holding an alien creature.

I've ordered replacement blades (and a few other parts that haven't broken yet) online, but I've finally arrived at my question:

Why did the shop workers look at the main blades of my Falcon 40 like they were so strange? They told me "We don't carry anything that looks like that."

Is there really something unusual about the construction of the Falcon 40? Are there really no replacement blades from other manufacturers that would work?

Thanks!

HBFP blades will work fine.

For some reason FP helis are just now starting to get popular with Hobbyshops because EFlite has started making some. Most hobbyshops only carry E-Flite and Align stuff, not sure why but I figure they make more money on them.

Well, I apparently bought my first RC heli a week too early and missed the "Don't buy the Falcon 40" boat. Oh, well.

I'm doing the "scoot" thing to practice controlling my helicopter. However, it really never wants to go to the right right or forward.

I *THINK* the problem might be with my flybar paddles. They never sit horizontally, and are always angled no matter how much I tilt (or trim) the right stick. They only tilt in one direction.

Should the flybar paddles be horizontal to the floor when the right stick is in the neutral position? Another way of asking this is, should the flybar paddles be parallel-to/in-the-same-plane-with the rotor head ring? (They're not.)

If they need to be adjusted, what is the easiest way to do this? It looks like the flybar blade rod just needs to be twisted about 45 degrees, but I can't see an easy way (or really, ANY way) to accomplish this.

Thanks again!!

They should be parallel with the flybar frame or ring. There should be a screw to loosen on each paddle so you can turn them. I don't have a Falcon, but I think it's pretty close to the HBFP. Better look at the stickey on the forum under "4 Ch Fixed Pitch Helis".
