The WASP v3 (upgraded to v4)
A small helicopter with some big size heli features, such as Gyro and a belt driven tail rotor, colective pitch & a brushless system.
This heli is almost ready to fly, right from the box. Just add your own reciever and youre ready to go!
Main rotor Diameter: 440mm
Main body length: 475mm
Average flight time: 10-15min
Main motor type: Brushless Outrunner 370 size
Battery: 11.1v 800mAh lipoly
Required: 6ch transmitter/receiver
This unit has been upgraded to the v4 wasp.
We will update the photos and product information as soon as possible.Color may vary from the photo.
It is right buy.I need one for real training. thx.Recendy bought one, it came with the mail after 10 days :) After chekking that everything was there, I discouver that one schrew was missing in the swashplate (M1,6 x 10mm).Just went to a optissian and got one. OK.Trimmed up the servos, and movements. Gave the engine app. 80 % of energy suddenly the tail rotor stop rotating !. The tailrotor belt wheel got loose from the the tailshaft Get a extra tail shaft with a belt wheel.Havent been aborne yetI made about 100 flights now with this heli, quite a lot I think. So in my opinion it is a good heli with good flight performance.
I'm new with heli's, I learn to fly with it, so I only hoover and fly circles, the parts are not tested with high 3D loads.
These are the things I had to deal with:
Difficulties to get it flying with my own transmitter, the set up is not easy for an unexperienced.
After 15 flights I replaced the gyro + servo by a logictech2100+servo.
After 30 flights 1 swash servo failed. I finally replaced all three of them with the HD-202.
I also bought an extra lipo after 30 flights.
After 80 flights the one way bearing on the main transmission failed. I screwed the main gear on the belt pulley.
The skyartec Lipo (60 charges) + the esc + the motor are still doing well.
I think it is a good heli for learning to fly and absolutely worth moneyOnly 3 Stars because one of the blades broke at first spinup, missed my leg and punched a hole in my door.
The tail was moving fast from left to right no matter how i set the gyro. it worked only after removing the Gyros plug from the gear channel, replacing the tail servo with a fast digital jr one and reducing the massive play in the tail pitch by adding ca coats to the linkages.
There is / was a lot of play not only in the tail but also in the linkages of the rotorhead.
After fixing those issues ists a really nice tiny heli for a unbeatable price.
j'ai achet le complet plus pieces de rechange je test et je vous dit voir meme video dans le forumI'm a newby with helicopters, but after one week of setting up and trying, I'm hoovering a little with this helicopter.
It seems to fly well!
Setting up the heli on my FF-7 was difficult, especially the gyro setup.
It is difficult, because there is no manual included how to do this.
I found a manual on the internet for the gyro (and also for the esc) on
http://www.skyartec.com/UploadFiles/Instruction%20manual/PDF/Equipment/Sky500%20Gyro/Sky500%20Gyro.pdfI give it 4 stars. Almost 3
After 2 runs the oneway diff fails.
Temporarly fixed it by glueing the maingear and beltpulley together with CA.
Swash static and dynamic weren't lock together so I did not fly untill I glued those parts together with locktite.
Gyro doesn't intilize with a corona synth receiver so I made a switch between the Plus wire of the Gyro to turn it on after the receiver started.
But it looks great. Upgrade parts are nice.Small helicopter equipped like large. Before putting it in the air, it is necessary to check if all is quite tight. I have to balance the principal blades and to adjust tracking.I have also to stick the top swashplate into the bearing of the sub-swashplate.
Following several tests, it appears that the gyro does not function with a synthesized receiver, I have to assemble a receiver to quartz.
Very fast delivery to Japan. Packed neatly.
The main frame is made of carbon and many parts are metal. Very rigid structure.
I found difficulty in tail linkage. When tighten the tail boom stator, tail linkage does not work (Tail boom stator is also used for tail linkage rod guide. If tighten it, the guide hole become too small for the rod to move smooth. It is difficult to describe it here but you understand when see it actually). So I had to make the guide hole larger.
At first flight, there was a serious vibration. I had to balance the main blades at the field. Then it flied quite stable.
After several flights, the tail unit (Made of resin) got cracked. I think the unit was damaged during the first vibration. I should have balanced the main blades before the flight. I ordered upgrade tail unit (Metal) at another site (This site does not sell them). I found this small heli very attractive anyway.He comprado un segundo HELI
Pero AVISO necesita una emisora que se pueda programar para ccpm (como la F7 de FUTABA)
Uno de los helis era para mi hijo, que tine una FUTABA F6 - para esta NO VALE
