Default why ?

lama 4, always wants to go backwards, I have to change the settings
constately on the tx to a point that I can't anymore, and the thing backs up again. swashplate looks ok, on the level.
got an idea ?
thanks.

Check balance by holding helicopter by rotor. Should balance level. If it is tail heavy it will go backwards.

Default reply to why

hello,
thanks for the replys. heli is well balanced, pack is attached ok,
when I first got it, it when't backwards, even with trim middled,
fooled around with the lenght of the links servo-swashplate, now
very light forward movement, hovers beautifully.
thanks,
