Knowledge base Quark Installation & setup

Topics in Installation & setup

Topic Question Answer
101 Accessing setup modes directly from your transmitter. In cases where the gyro is mounted between the helicopter frames it may not be possible to reach the SET button. Your Quark gyro offers...
92 Are the Stop Gain settings reversed when the gyro is mounted upside down? Are they reversed if the... Clockwise and counter clockwise refer to the direction of rotation when the gyro's label is facing towards the main rotor. If you mount the gyro with...
81 Do you recommend to fit the gyro at the rear or front tray? Both locations should work. Extensive advice on the best installation practices is given in your gyro's user guide.  
80 At what distance should I place the servo ball link? The best practice is to first try the advice in your helicopter's assembly manual. We recommend that you initially place the servo ball link at the...
66 Can I reset the gyro to factory defaults without the Flash-Link? Sorry no. The advanced gyro parameters can only be modified and can only be reset to the factory defaults using the Flash-Link or Blue-Link interface.
68 Can I just set 145% for each endpoint and then use my radio's rudder travel adjust to fine-tune the... Whilst the gyro operates in AVCS mode the tail pitch is entirely controlled by the gyro. In this mode the pilot’s rudder inputs become a...
50 The heli piros very quickly at full stick but with the stick 1/2 over the tail feels sluggish. Based on expert pilot feedback our gyros have build in rudder exponential in order to provide precise control near mid-stick and fast rotation rates...
22 How do I setup my gyro for eye blurring piros? Whilst the gyro operates in AVCS mode the tail pitch is entirely controlled by the gyro. In this mode the pilotís rudder inputs become a command for...
14 I am unable to setup the endpoints and gain as the user guide suggests. The user guide provides general guidance on the preferred conditions for using our gyros. In practice design variations between helicopters may...
13 Do the servo endpoints need to be equal? No, and this is why our gyros provide independent endpoint adjustment for each end. You should however try to avoid extreme difference (greater than...
9 The helicopter pirouettes too slow. My old gyro was more responsive. Based on expert pilot feedback our gyros are designed to provide precise control near mid-stick and fast rotation rates at full stick. It may take a...
5 I fly with reverse tail. How should I setup gyro reversing? If you use reverse tail (meaning that with left rudder stick the helicopter yaws clockwise) while configuring your Spartan gyro reversing you need to...
4 Do I need to use the supplied metal plate? The supplied metal plate is used to increase the gyro mass which in general provides better vibration attenuation. • Electric helicopters have...
3 Is the gain of the tail gyro too low? The optimal gain value is a function of several parameters including rotor speed, tail rotor diameter, tail blade efficiency, servo arm length, servo...
2 Is it necessary to setup the tail with 8deg pitch in rate mode? You only need the 8deg adjustment if you want to run your Spartan gyro in rate mode. In AVCS mode Spartan gyros work equally well whether the...
123 My gyro has built in -50% exponential. At the same time my transmitter (Spektrum DX7) has -25%... Both exponential functions are effective, each shaping the rudder signal as is passes through. The -% on the Quark means less sensitive whilst -% on...
