digis buzz and move a little , but should not jump much they calm down once loaded up . cant think why tx proxi would make a difference. also i think with my problem i went to a 7c that i had and no probs after that

i had something similar years ago with an ff8 super / spekky dm8 module using hs85 servos. the left aile twitched alot . if i remember i think it also twiched when the elev and rudd were moved to. i did solve it in the end , but for the life of me cannit remember how .....ill add that no mixing was in effect it was a glitch / problem, with the radio

Thread: Rolling Circles
11/01/2017 15:19:25

the sim will only get you so far . as for learning basic aeros ,,,maybe .but anything remotely advance they are no good . knife edge is a good example . my lass could do a knife edge loop on a sim ....get out in the real world of practice no substitute for it. .. i can drive a rally car or shoot a 1k kill shot with a rifle on the computer , fly low

10/01/2017 20:10:31

rolling circuits are easy really .start learning with the way the model wants to go ,roll right and do a left circuit or vice versa. one roll circles as said above are a bit more difficult , then theres the rolling harrier doing a circle/circuit, thats probaly for another day .now some use elevator only some use rudder/elevator i prefer the later . as also said above start with 4/8 pointers and lllllllloooonnnggg slow rolls till its instinctive on input , you will find circuits easy then...good luck....and remember ........fly low
