Question
How much travel should there be on the elevator.
Just seems the travel is very little even when in different modes. So I just wanted to make sure it is where it should be or if I need to change it a bit. Im using a DX8 and the settings came from the downloaded file PKZ6580 by Quique Somenzini .

Question
Power : 3s 13 x6 prop or 4s with original propeller ?
I like how this plane performs , it hovers easily and its very stable at low speeds but since I live 2650 meters above sea level it feels a little underpowered using the recommended setup : 3s 2200 (25c) lipo with 12 x 4E propeller . Will the motor and speed control tolerate a 3s setup and a 13 x 8 propeller ?or a 4s 2200 with a 12 x 4E propeller ? Or in any case will I exceed amps? Thank you

You can get a prob 12x6E this will give you high torque. but you will notice that plane is shaking, so easy on throttle. I only use 3s 2250 (45C) batteries. I won't recommend 25C. my 35C give me 2 mins less than 45C flight time. If the wind is 12-16 MPH then my 45C will last 6 mins. Wind 4 to 8 Mph 45 C will last 7 to 9 mins both on 55% power level.

Question
FLIGHT ISSUES
WHEN IN THE AIR. THE PLANE FEELS LIKE SHE'S TAIL HEAVY AND PUTS HERSELF IN A 40-45 DEGREE ATTITUDE. I MUST FORCE IT DOWN WITH ELEVATOR INPUT. I'VE SPOKEN WITH THE HOBBY SHOP WHO WANTS TO ADJUST SUB-TRIM FOR THE ELEVATOR BUT THE BOOK SAYS NOT TO USE TRIMS ON THE RADIO. HAS ANYONE FOUND THIS ISSUE AND WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO CORRECT IT? I'M PRESENTLY USING A DX-7 WITH FACTORY PROGRAMMING FOR THE VISIONAIRE AND STOCK BATTERY IN THE PLANE. THANKS

answer 1
Any time you think your plane is tail-heavy you should adjust the CG to correct it.
Trim for level flight at a comfortable mid-range throttle setting.
If the tail comes down when you reduce power in level flight then you are at least marginally tail-heavy.

Tail-heavy makes a plane do many "3D" maneuvers much easier, but can be very unstable for normal "at speed" flight. Learning to deal with this requires intermediate to advanced flying skills, especially dealing with stall due to loss of power.

It is almost never wrong to move the CG forward to make the aircraft perform more the way you want. You can "creep" the CG back as your skills increase.

I have had a few aircraft where the recommended CG was well outside of my comfort range even with over 45 years of model aviation experience. I have also pushed the CG WAY back from the maker's recommended location in a few cases.

Do what works best for your flying skills and flying style.

you could easily correct the trim problem with the servo . you are not supposed to digitally trim the model. but, you could trim it with the servo. all you would have to do is take screwdriver and move the servo arm to the right trim. hope this helps, Kenneth.

answer 3
Mine seemed a little tail heavy until I put the supplied 3S 2200 Parkzone battery forward until the first few mm were under the front of the battery box. My forward Velcro strap is just covering the front part of the battery and the battery is just short of touching the motor.

I also have just a wee bit of down elevator trimmed in. I mean just a wee bit, barely noticeable. An additional mark is the back of the battery is even with the two rear screws for the battery box. This puts the CofG approximately 100mm (4 in) back from the leading edge on my model. I am no expert, but my plane seems to fly well with this setup.

Good luck flying :)

The servos may not have been centred properly and may need adjustment-- they would work but you might be putting extra wear on on one servo, disconnect one at a time until you find the culprit, Maybe take the prop off first!!

Download the flight profile to sd card off horizons resource center for the visionaire and load it then flip gear switch on that enables full surface throw high rates and the 3d action if no sd card n ur dx7 just assign channel gear to gear switch and when gear switch is on it will enable the high rate for 3d after the throttle is pushed up a little then let off you'll see the difference it only initialized after some throttle input try that out its a major difference once you get the 3d mode enabled its capable of some real snappy moves

I thank BISH73 for the answer and actually just accessing the gear after throttle movement did activate 3D control, but I do not think either the 9303 or the 9503 from JR have Sd cards so that part is all manual, but I did get the correct parameters written int by hand. I now have the green light and tried 3D this morning --pretty wicked.

Question
Landing Gear
I just purchased one and I understand that the landing gear might be a weak spot on this aircraft.
Has anyone reinforced it by adding a wire cross member to the gear?
Maybe it doesn’t really need it at all.

The landing gear is spaghetti lol my LHS owner upgraded his gear using a carbon z yak 54 gear and wheels since the wires thicker u need the gear set and wheels and its tight to fit but it goes in and gives the prop a little more clearance about an inch off the ground and I showed the guys in my club the other 4 w visionaires had the same mod within two weeks and costs 8$ after 4$ gear and 4$ wheels :) do it it will never bend at all and doesn't affect flight performance as its not that much heavier and it can take some hard landings and won't bend...do it you won't regret it...especially w a hard landing on factory set you can bust a prop as I did before my upgrade now I haven't had that problem cause it doesn't flex as much but has the extra height it's perfect

Cross member would seem to me to take out the small give in the gear on landing, so just flip it out of 3D and it floats in really well, just above stall, small bit of power if needed.

I now have had 2 days of flying this craft and have had no problems with the landing gear.

Don't waste your time trying to improvise a fix for the weak gear. Buy the Carbon Z Yak 54 gear and wheels and be done with it. I did. $12 delivered from CA to VA. Every landing is not going to be a "grease it on" kind of landing no matter how good you are. The stock gear would toe out taxing in grass after doing a "sprong" landing. I have at least 200 flights on mine and I'm still in love with it! lol The gear was my only complaint. Not now! The Yak 54 gear is the only way to go.

The opening for the battery is 5 inches long, a bit more than 1.5 inches high and a bit under 2 inches wide. Weight of the battery which comes with the plane is 6.2 ounces. The only concern I would have is how you would affect the enter of gravity of the plane by the additional weight. As long as you can put it far back, it should be fine. You don't want the plane to fight against a heavy nose.

Yes,The 3200mah will work..A thing to keep in mind is the extra weight...Think of the milli-amps (mah) as the gastank of the plane.The more mah,the more gas in the tank..But the heavier the plane is going to be...So you have to find that happy medium...Hope this helps you out........Thanks

I use 2200 mAh, 3S batteries at 35C. The battery that comes with the plane is 25C. Your 2100 mAh should be ok and you should probably get around 5 minutes of flying. Because yours is only 20C, don't push throttle too hard or your battery might get too hot and puff.

Go for the visionaire it's got the new ar635 6 channel w 3 axis gyro stabilization system it's wicked, I'm a heli guy , I grabbed a visionaire and I'm flying crazy 3d within 5 flights it's an awesome and powerful foamie, I highly reccomend it, and I fly with a bunch of experienced plane pilots and there's 4 other guys in my club that bough visionaries lol the 3axis system makes it a dream, and in the wind too, only downside is landing gear is weak, if you get this plane order a carbon z yak 54 main gear and wheel set its 7$ total for upgrade it fits in smugly and handles some rough landings without bending..and lifts the prop up off the ground more preventing prop strikes....get it and you will love it. I guarantee it. It's an awesome 3d plane and runs of 2200 3s lipos which is a common size...go for it can't beat it for 300$ and the parts are cheap if u crash but w the 3axis it's like flying on rails...good flying :) and don't let the size scare you it handles so well, floats right on in, very good airfoil lots of lift doesn't need much speed to stay up, but if u wanna zip around the pattern it will haul :) haha

I have the VisionAire, F4U Corsair and Extra 300, and I have them listed in order of easiest to hardest to fly in my opinion. The VisionAire is a very stable plane, but it is a bigger plane than what you have been flying. It will take off very smoothly, and respond to input control very nicely. You must use dual rates with really small displacements and expo. I would recommend 50% rate to start with. There is so much displacement that this plane will turn on a dime. You must get used to it. Fly it like your champ for a while. Practice your landings. They can be slow because the plane has such big wing surface.

If your looking to reset the ar635 to original factory settings for the receiver, not the presets for the visionaire but for the receiver itself follow the instructions here http://www.spektrumrc.com/ProdInfo/Files/SPMAR635-Manual_EN.pdf

Please see the servo arm pack I have linked in my recommended products. You will need one pack per servo arm that you need to replace. For the ParkZone VisionAire, you will use the long half servo arm from this pack.

Did you check the parts listing there should be a listing for the stock servo horns , parkzones sight.. P#PKZ1132. Also I HIGHLY reccomend swapping the main gear which is like spaghetti with the carbon z yak 54's wire gear and wheel set retail cost for both wheels and gear come to like 7$ and will be the best upgrade you make, the gear is heavier and can take heavier hits on landing, it's a tight fit but I did it per reccomendation of my LHS owner he did it to his, and now the three other ppl in my club have done the change and love it, now more prop strikes and those sometimes heavy harrier landings don't bend the gear , take that into consideration my friend and those are the replacement horns for ailerons , elevator and rudder servo horns, complete 4 pack, hope that helps :)

Question
Will the VisionAire be offered in a BNF Basic version?
I'm excited about this new plane/receiver, but don't need another charger and have plenty of 3S 2200mAH batteries already.

I don't think that they would. Usually they do BNF Basic if they made the plane befor and didn't want to force another battery and charger on people who bought the plane before. You could probabaly sell the charger on ebay if you didn't want it.

answer 2
Highly doubtful think of the little extra they make off adding those, the chargers useless to us experienced guys, I have a box with 6 eflite 3s chargers lol but the battery isn't the worst thing except its low charge c rate, but think how much more $ the big company makes off including and charging for those two small accessories? In the long run they are in business to make $$ so doubtful you'll see a bnf basic ever....but if that's holding you back don't let it, this plane is awesome! And y get another battery and who knows you might find a newbie to buy your extra included charger who is on a low budget and will throw you a few bucks for it, the battery I hear ya , I've got 5 hyperion gx3 45c for my b450 but we can never have enough batteries. But to answer that ? Slim to none that you'll see a basic plane only version.

Question
Very little elevator travel
On high rates (3D mode) the elevator only moves up and down by 1/2 inch. I'm using a DX8 radio and the dual rates & expos are set per the manual. Why is the elevator travel so limited?

answer 2
if your high rate on you elevator is set at less than 100 percent you could increase it to gain more travel. also you could move the elevator pushrod to the shortest hole on the elevator control horn to increase the elevator movement

answer 3
I had the same problem with the DX8 and intend to talk to tech support to get to the bottom of it. I suspect the problem is how the receiver is programmed when AS3X is at low gain, or off. A temporary work around is to set the general flight rate setting to 125% instead of 70%. This will deflect the elevation about 60% of full range, which works very well for the general flight setting.

That's the receiver installed on the one from horizon, it's compatible with all spektrum transmitters. You should double check it to see for yourself but that's what i see.

answer 2
No... channel order and encoding are different.

BNF are "Spektrum" DSM2 compatible (may be some DSMX compatible coming out now)

I am not aware of any "just add transmitter" models for Airtronics. Though you will find many "Receiver Ready" (add transmitter and Receiver) products. Many ARF models now come very close to being receiver ready.

The AR635 receiver is only compatible with Spektrum or JR DSM2 or DSMX transmitters. It will not work with any other radio brand unless the radio has a Spektrum DM8/DM9 transmitter module.
