Hi All

Firstly is this the correct place for discussing traditional Helicopters? I only ask as I seem to remember when I joined DIYD there was a Topic called "Traditional Helis"

A little about my self. I am a RC Heli pilot and love everything about flying them however my ambition is not matched by my skill. I started the Drones thing looking to do a heli but went down the path of mulitcopters to get used to all the kit and the terminology. I am about 90% of the way to having a stable quad. and Now I am looking to do a heli. I have been through most of the Wiki and forum Questions and answers but still have a few residual questions.

I have a few old Heli frames that don't get used any more I would like to use either a Kalt Barron 30, Kyosho 30 or a Raptor 30 I also have Two 400 Trex a 450se and a xl. All of which bar the Trex 450 SE are not ccpm and all have fly-bars

So my questions are:

1)Why (what was the reasoning behind it) did the traditional Heli group go for flybarless?

2) Why did traditional Heli group go for CCPM?

3) What would be needed for me to change the Code so I can use a non CCPM heli with a flybar. (I have no coding experience).

I am not challenging the decisions I just want to better understand the logic of how the project has come to where it is now.

    I believe the reason for a flybarless head is the gyros on the apm handle the roll and pitch rotation with out the need for the flybar which would only get in the way. Much like any after market flybarless controller.

     

    CCPM a lot less linkages and a lot more direct control.  You could probably use the flybar but i think you would have to adjust the PID values.

     

    I'm not a coder either but Randy might be able to give us an answer?
