Default CX2 beginner: help with top blade alignment

I have a used CX2. Checking out everything before trying to fly. The upper rotor blades are out of alignment at low RPM, but seem to come into line at full power. I read the CX2 manual about turning the ends of the linkage 1/2 to 1 turn a time in either direction. Since this is my first CX, this instruction is causing me a problem. The counterbalance weights on the flybar are connected by set screws. Is this the stock setup? If I try to turn the flybar with the set screws fully tightened, is it supposed to turn? Or, do I just unloosen the set screws and experiment with different counterweight positions by sliding the weights in or out? Please someone HELP!!!

The linkage that you refer to is NOT the wieghts on the flybar ends.

What they are referring to is the little ball links that connect the flybar to the blade.
You want to remove it from the blade, and then adjust by turning a half turn one way or
the other and see if that helps. If it gets worse, then turn it the other way.

Hi Jim, and thank you for setting me straight. I'll tinker with it carefully this week and keep practicing on the FS-One Flight Sim.
