Querido paisano:

Very usefull information and vids!! I can say Marc's information and videos are great support... but nothing is better than hearing about it in your own language. Gracias, paisano.

Now i can fully work with it and do my tests... I really appreciate it

Wish me luck.

Saludos / Regards

Thanks for the vids, i am just waiting for the next one :)
But what do you think of the belt V2 nuttcaze ? :D
I got the 2,6ghz version.

Is it a good heli for me? because i have never flown a 6Ch before.

2.6ghz? WOW it is probably new one :giggle: I guess you mean 2.4ghz Wink It is very good heli for you if you have flown any 4ch single rotor heli (eg honey bee fp) orange74

PostSubject: upgrade   Sat Sep 19, 2009 8:13 am

Hade bad crash with my e-sky belt cp v2 lot of head damage, so I thought this would be a good time for a CNC head/tail
upgrade. All of the cnc upgrades I see say it’s for a belt cp not the v2, will a cp v1 upgrade work on the cp v2?.
Also most of the good deals are cnc head/tail kits, being new I don’t know how to assemble the cnc kits is there
any information on how you do this?.
Thank toy for any help

PostSubject: upgrade   Sun Sep 20, 2009 5:56 am

Had a bad crash with my Esky belt cp v2 needs new head/tail assembly Etc… I want to upgrade to cnc parts.
I was thinking, all of my electronics work fine rx. Servo, esc. Motor, gyro, Etc. if I could buy a barebones
heli and transfer all the electronics to it might be a better way to go than buying cnc head/tail assemblies,
Like a barebones belt cp v2 carbon edition? What do you think and were can I get something like that? I only
have the Esky stock 2.4G radio is this ok or do I need a programmable one to adjust a cnc head?

Thank’s Bill

Yes, belt cp electronics will work with almost all 450 size helis. It isn't very hard to install CNC upgrades. We can always help you if you don't understand something! :grinn: And if you are gonna buy bare bone kit don't buy belt cp v2. It is very expensive. Better buy EXI (or any other trex 450 clone). It will be cheaper and more stable than belt cp barebone :bigthumb:

I'd look into an EXI 450 or better yet the Copter X

someones got a link for the Copter X

I just bought this E-sky Belt CP V2, and i am a beginner. Can anyone let me know why the ESC will caught fire/burn by itself? and when i turn off my transmitter, the heli will on itself and starting to turn the blade and when i on my transmitter blade wont turn? but servo of the blade will move like left right front back.

Design Defect? Not 'beefy' enough to handle the loads being run through it? In electrical terms, resistance=heat. So if the motor is drawing more current than the ESC can handle (i.e the ESC is resisting), it gets hot and can smoke or flame out. The forums here are littered with stories and advice about upgrading the stock 25A ESC.
In any event, be careful and be sure to keep the heatsink clear of obstructions. orange74

Probably goes back to the ESC again. Will your heli spin up at all (when you throttle up), or will the motor ONLY turn when NOT getting input from the receiver? And are you using the 2.4Gz or 72Mz Tx/Rx?

Make sure throttle trim is lower than at center, throttle stick is all way down and THR (throttle) is on REV (reverse) on tx right side bottom :prop:

make sure you turn on the tx first (throtle stick and trim fully down) and connect the battery. Also when turning off, disconnect the battery and then turn off the tx.

HeliSim RC orange68

You only need to download it from their website: http://www.marksfiles.net/HeliSimRC/download.htm

And you just need to do this:

"Esky digital 6-channel transmitter that comes with the Honey Bee King 2
Required this: There is a dipswitch under the third battery from the right. I switched 1 to on and 2 to off. The transmitter comes with 1 in the off position and 2 in the on position."

Just dont forget to return the dipswitch to its original position, when u gonna fly your RL RC Heli.

I used FMS but does not work good enough with the 6-channel transmiter.

You need the Interlink Controller USB cable to switch it amount the Transmitter (Tx) and the computer. You can find it in your local hobby store or in Webstores of Helicopters who sell Esky spare parts

If you want to go the free simulator route, then I agree with Bert and suggest HeliSim RC.
For that I made my own cable (actually plugs into the Microphone-in jack on your sound card) and use SmartPropoPlus and PPJoy. SmartPropoPlus is a program that interprets the commands from the Transmitter, and PPJoy is the program that simulates that input as a Windows-Compatible Controller (or Joystick).

If you are pretty hands-on, or just don't want to have to buy the USB cable, the instructions for how to make one are on the SmartPropoPlus Hardware area. macguyver

What's the best way to set up the tail rotor servo and pitch on the Belt CP V2?

My tail seems to hold fine when in HH mode, but it drifts a bit, which I counter acted with the trim tabs. However, when I try it in rate mode on the gyro, the heli spins wildly. What's the proper way to set up the tail?

Thanks!

i didnt botter with rate mode, i've just set the moving piece on the tail in the middle so i have left/right the same way to move. adjust the way on the gyro screw to not push against the tail boom or the tail rotor.

the drift is caused by temp change or loose belt, do the following:

if you take off and see the tail is drifting,
  • land

  • set the switch on the transmitter to rate mode

  • disconnect the heli battery

  • wait 5 seconds

  • re-connect the heli battery

  • wait until the heli is initalized

  • switch to hh mode on the transmitter

  • take off again and see if the drift is away


if not - retry

dont touch the ruder trim, just let it in the middle.

if it is still drifting, try to set the belt abit tighter and re-test.

Getting the head to lock good has been my biggest challenge lately. I have gone through and done my best to set up the servo in RATE mode to manually set the tail blade pitch to counteract the rotor torque. While I have it close, it isn't perfect, and my heli will still rotate some.
But this adjustment seems to be SUPER sensitive. A millimeter either way forward or back, and the heli spins like a top. (Is this normal? I think it may be because there is some real slop in the tail mechanics that allows it to move some.)

You should try to get this set before just relying on your gyro to set it for you. The idea behind it is that if you set your rudder servo to 90 degrees and adjust the tail blades to the right pitch to hold your head in rate mode, then that frees up the gyro and servo together to be able to move both (+) and (-) more degrees from 90 to make adjustments.

Think about it this way... Say your servo moves in the range of 45 to 135 degrees, with 90 being straight up and down. If your gyro needs to adjust your servo to 110 degrees JUST to maintain HH, then you will be severely limited in the remaining amount of rudder input that can be given in the (+) direction.

My understanding is that, at least in theory, the gyro will make all the fine adjustements to the rudder servo inputs to keep the head pointing in the same direction. So if the tail isn't adjusted properly, the gyro SHOULD compensate for it (in theory), at least until the servo travel is exhausted and the limit has been reached.

My question then is, will adjusting the trim tabs for the rudder actually ADD a slight bit of rudder input to counteract any gyro drift? Or will the gyro override the input and adjust the tail as it sees fit, still allowing it to move? OR will adding the trim cancel out the gyro?

PostSubject: Belt-cp Pitch set   Fri Oct 23, 2009 10:30 am

Will ~ Belt-cp V2 manual is written, fixed-speed pitch mode, and vice-7 degrees, which is the recommended value, or determine the value?

If not, then ~ is generally used when the original device's remote control, fixed speed mode is to pitch the number of degrees?

(My Denso, Esky 25a & Align 35a electronic variable speed, 11.1v 2200mah 25c & Esky 11.1v 1800mah 20C) are the original configuration of the other ~

Thank you ~

Hello ~ I just saw the Esky Belt V2 Beginners Guide - Part 3 of this video ~

Video on the host, the remote device that fine-tuning with the throttle down throttle pull in the end, to illustrate how to adjust the pitch ...

Will ~ Remote Control of the throttle fine-tuning with the throttle pulled down in the end, followed by fine-tuning the throttle and the throttle release As for the middle, in adjusting the pitch on what kind of difference?

Adjust the pitch, whether fixed speed as long as the adjustment of the pitch?
The general pattern of the pitch, you can do not have to be adjusted?

The moderator explained, it will be original Esky 6 channel remote control device fine-tune the throttle pulled the bottom left and right above the knob, go to the 0 position, open the 3d mode switch, and then the accelerator pushed to the middle, hang up pitch-foot, check whether the angle of the main rotor at the 0 degree ...

I do not understand the following questions ~

If the fine-tuning the throttle pull in the end, only used to set, the original manufacturer of electronic transmission, that with the accelerator pushed to the middle, to set the original electronic transmission, from what is the difference?

Oh crap, sorry for the late reply.

But I just can't seem to figure out what you're asking. Did you need help with setting the pitch?
