Help with balance/drift
on a TETHERED...yes I know it is not exactly pure rc LOL....but anyway
I got this hirobo tethered and it wants to drift to left and backwards when
I give it power, and I'm unsure what to do...also, on blade tracking, I have
a he)) of a time trying to see what blades are tracking wrongly...I've put
colored spots on the ends of the blades, but my 70 year old eyes just
aren't picking up on what is wrong...this heli is my attempt to get some
fun in "rc" type because I cannot afford the "real" thing on my pension....
any and all help appreciated...(laymens simple terms pls lol)....

for your blades, get a black magic marker and color the tip of one blade for about 2" or so and then you should be able to tell if the high blade is the black tipped one or the white one.

Thanks Heli Jim I'll try that.

:sad: Any more ideas on getting the phony little chopper to lift up
without it going backwards and flipping over?? PLEASE!? ;-)

is the swashplate leveled ? And maybe look and see if the batterie is
at its right place, if not the heli might wanna go backwards. Are the trim middled on your tx.
that's what I've been told.

This little thing does not have a battery ...runs off a "tether", in other
words it hooks up to home electricity...swashplate looks okay to my old
eyes...actually on trim settings, it does a little better with the
elevator trim set all the way up,,,,,but still it wants to go
reverse and to the left badly, (left as in view from tail)...so cannot
dare to lift it off the floor...

hey Don,
Sorry, didn't know what "tethered" meant, I live up north from you guys.
english is my second language, so... I'm sure someone will be able to help you.

NEVER MIND, I shipped it to a Hobby Haven down the road a fair piece
and they got it set up for me.
