I'm really surprised that some of you geeks didn't get the Urukai reference. It's from The Lord of the Rings. An Urukai is a cross between an Orc and a Goblin man.

Ah, well as much as I hate to admit it (I'll have to hand in my geek card) I've never made it all the way through the Lord of the Rings movie(s). :face

I think the Urukai show up in the first movie. They're what Saruman was breeding and who captured Pippin and Merry.

That's because it's Fantasy, not SciFi. They're often thrown in together because the line is not always clear cut.

In any case, it's an interesting spin-off of the Goblin name.

A few more tidbits about the Chronos:

The swash plate has been enlarged so that the swash to head links are vertical in two dimensions. This allows equal throws + and - due to the grip arms being 90 degrees to the links at zero pitch.

As a result of the larger swash plate, the main shaft is now 15mm in diameter through the top two bearing blocks, tapering down to 10mm through the OWB sleeve so that the 7HV gear stack and bottom bearing block can be used. The larger diameter should also hold up to the stress of longer blades, allowing for the airframe to be stretched.

The 6HVU links have been adopted. They are stiffer in the tangential direction to provide better phasing while still having flex in the radial direction to let the spindle teeter.

The servo-to-swash link geometry has been changed to make the 90-degree points slightly above and below zero pitch. This is to improve linearity of swash movement.

Only part way through the show just to the part where you're mentioning the difference in the collective when going from a spektrum radio to the Taranis (or others). Since i moved my goblin 500 over to the Taranis it's felt very mushy but i couldn't put my finger on exactly what it was... i figured my setup was just bad. Though it was fine on my DX8. I've also noticed that i need a lot more negative collective when inverted just to hover. I had planned to tear it down and go through it completely now that i have the soko tool, but just haven't had time. I may try to put the z curve in there first... any suggestions on how much you guys brought in the curve?

Thanks!
