We recommend completing the wizard and starting with the recommended tail gain. As you fly the model, the recommended procedure developed by iKON/Brain team member, Alex Rose, is:
- Turn off pitch and cyclic pre-compensation.
- Find the maximum tail gain. High speed sideways flight, aileron loops, over-speeds. Find where the high speed wag is, then back off 5 points.
- Do full collective punch-outs to assess how much the tail kicks. Increase the tail gain 5 points at a time. Usually 10-15 points total max.
- Finally, add in pitch pre-compensation until the tail is completely locked in punch-outs. Usually very little cyclic pre-compensation is needed (default is set to 10). A value of 70 or so in pitch pre-compensation is not uncommon.
