Thread: analogue and digital frame rate
02/11/2014 16:58:52

All my servos on my sbach are digital apart from the elevator servos which are hitec 654mg's ultra torque , can anyone explain what would happen if I changed the frame rate from 22ms to 11ms , I know the servos would be quicker , but what would happen to the elevator servos with this frame rate

this has been commented on at length in other threads and has Jon and others have said the law is already in place that prohibits this type of flying.

Problem is , laws are also in place to stop terrorism , but they dont tend to work do they , maybe an ecm bubble over sensitive areas ?

By all means have a tad of rudder mixed to the ailerons, but have it switchable so you can learn to co-ordinate the rudder on its own. So many flyers just use the rudder for steering on the ground and then never touch it again until after landing - a bit like learning to ride a bike and then keeping the stabilisers on.

Bank and yank is OK as far as it goes with sport planes, but is asking for trouble with more advanced scale stuff if that is what you're working towards.

I fly mainly aerobatic stuff , I have a 30cc sbach and two caps , one 45cc and the other 62cc , I just find flying the cub is like trying to steer a brick round the sky , it is sluggish , seems to take an age for aileron input to take effect , and when it does it slowly comes around .

Like I say , I had aileron differential before I required an extra channel , and that sorted out any yaw it had in the turns , its quite big as well 26cc , I'm not sure why I persevere with it , cos to be honest its not my bag ( as austin powers would say ) but there is something quirky about it that I cant quite put my finger on .

Anyway I'm looking at a yak , so it might end up for sale yet crook

Heres a simple question , which I should already know the answer to , but without getting out and flying I'm not quite sure , I would like to add aileron/rudder mix on the tx for my j3 cub , which I have been flying with aileron differential , but I need an extra channel as I've made a candy dropper so I have had to put the ailerons on a y lead .

When I input the mix , I add rudder in the same direction as the turn ?

Hi Neil I'm just down the road from you in primrose jarrow , depends what your going to ultimately end up flying as to which club you join , i'm a member of three clubs upto now , boldon , gateshead , and chester le street , boldon is ok if you are going to fly predominantly electric , even though they allow 60 size nitros they tend to complain about the noise but you can fly from the back of your car , gateshead is ok but the strip limits you to the size of model you want to fly , chester le street club (craghead) is good for anysize model , but there is a fair way to carry your gear from the car to the strip , and its also the most expensive club of the lot to join .

I'm now flying 30cc to 62cc size models so I'll be dropping boldon , and gateshead , and re-joining chestrr le street , and also Cramlington ( yes ben I am definately going to join lol)

Anyway drop me an inbox if you want , and we can exchange numbers if you like and have a chat . Two fellow flyers also live in washington

Yeah , keep ypur eyes and ears open ben , someone might just have a slack tongue , its happened before , good luck
