with the xc2 the more i fly it seems my controller is unresponsive until i am about halfway forward, back, left or right on sticks. how can i get more sensitivity with my controller.

What you can do is move the control arms OUT one hole on the servo arms. They are most likely in the INSIDE hole right now. The hole needs to be opened up a little with a small drill or with an exacto blade. Just a little.....you don't want the control rod being loose in the control arms.

You will find that this makes a LOT of difference in how it reacts to stick input.

i think they are on the outside hole. looking at the 3in1 side of helio, the servo linkage is on the last hole on the right. move it to the left 1 hole?

I was flying my CX2 last night and when I push forward, the heli goes forward, then stops, then goes forward, then stops. One of the other guys looked at it and said I had some slop between the inner and outer shaft (he could pull the top rotor head up about 1mm, said I needed to get rid of the slop). Would that be enough, or do I need to move my servos links out also?

What you are seeing is the two rotors working against each other. The bottom set of blades is telling the heli to move forward and the top set is saying No, NO...be stable.

Kind of normal for a co-axial

You can move the control rods out one hole on the servo arms and that helps a little
