The free Soko Heli Toolbox application is the newest innovation of Soko Heli Tools. We are the first in the world to utilize our mobile devices to take the setup experience of our RC helicopters to a level not seen before.
The free version of the app isn't just an easy and fast state-of-the-art replacement of the PDF manual. It also does the calculation for you and leads you through the right path to a perfect setup.
It is available for all your Apple devices with iOS version 7.1 or higher and all your Android devices with Android version 3.0 or higher.
So click the badges above to go the Soko Heli Toolbox's store site for current feature information, reviews and to install it on your device.
Virtual Main Shaft feature
The jewel you've all been waiting for is the Virtual Main Shaft (VMS) feature! It gets rid of the vertical alignment of the main shaft and the need of any physical levelling table by calculating the tilt of your main shaft in 3D space. With such a virtual 3D model of your heli's orientation, Soko Heli Toolbox is able to perfectly setup your head geometry.
For example if you want to setup 12° of collective pitch the app tells you to go to 15.2° on the Soko Gauge due to the tilt your heli. So despite you read an angle of 15.2° the angle in relation to the rotor main shaft in 3D space is 12° - and that's what we all are after!
In addition Soko Heli Toolbox calculates the plausibility of the values you input. So if you make a mistake the app will tell you that the numbers don't add up and advice to do the measurement again. Error resistance at its best!
So don't setup like they did in the last millennium. The future of RC helicopter setup is already here! Don't live in the past and soko your heli.
Do you need this PDF manual?
NO - if you own a mobile device with Android or iOS just go to the Google Play Store or Apple App Store and search for the Soko Heli Toolbox application.
This instructions-PDF has still its place though. It holds much more information and trouble shooting than the mobile application. So if you running into troubles or just want to know everything the Soko Kit can do for you have a look in here.
Finally our brief history of head geometry in the appendix is always worth a read.
