Taching the heli (P41 and P42)

Tached the heli yesterday using a Hobbico tachometer

I put a board accross the landing skids and put some weights on the board to keep the heli from moving. I then attached the tach to a stick and pushed it under the spinning blades.


Normal at mid stick (65% Throttle): 2760
Idle up at mid stick (65% throttle): 2860

At full stick in idle up, the rpm is about 2760 as the pitch has increased to 100% in addtion to the throttle. Clearly, I need to adjust my pitch curves and throttle curves so that the transition to idle up from Normal to Idle Up is smoother.
