As David says the rods look a little thin and flexible

On on of my models I moved the main undercarriage forward and this allowed the model to take off without too much elevator

Your mains look a bit too far back,can you try and move them forward?

Its best to video any test flights it makes it easier to see what the problem might be

I rely on video as I can never remember enough detail after the flight

Arthur can you post some pictures of your model and the head

-1.5 pitch may be to much you will get good spin up but low lift

I fly the Mk1 Gyrone it has zero on the blades but needs the prerotator to get the head up to flying speed

Nice build Martinthumbs up

Test flew the new three blade plate and the modified two blade platethumbs up

The Wot 4 had been trimmed for a different head and the takeoff was a wee bit out of trimsurprisesmiley

They both handled well and I did not find any problemsthumbs up

I do like the sound from the two blade setupteeth 2


02/01/2015 18:17:06

Assembled the two blade version with an extra 2mm layer on the bottom to stop any down flex on heavy landingswinkwink
And added a circle to equalize the distance from the blade to the hubsmiley
Again I will post once I have had a chance to fly it

Hi guys can you send me any PDF files, or files from the program you are using to draw the new plates and I will get my mate to cut me some test pieces and have a go with them

These are the parts I make to keep the standard head serviced after some abusesmiley
