have you setup up the tail servo to give correct pitch to the tail blades?

maybe list out the setup you went through and people be able to give you more and better advice on this.

well..one thing for sure, ive never reali set up helis for real except those on g3!lols:D
got it rtf and thats it.made a couple parts change to it.
ok...first of all do i need to set my tail servo dead centre?wat do i need to check tail pitch?my current set up for gyro is 80%+-.and one more thing, it drifts to the port side.izit a sign of cyclic error?:arggg:

here's a youtube video that shows you the setup process to make sure everythings are right, there isn't really a RTF out of the box. I think there's 6 videos in total.

see how you get on after that.

it is normal for the HBK2 to drift to the left on take off, the slower you try to take off the more it will drift, have you training gear? that will help you learn much easier.if you fine it hard to lift the heli off the ground completely
try just have it light on the training gear and get used to move it around first, then lift it off more, generally these heli gets more stable a few feet off the ground, but shouldn't be too much problem for 4 to 5 inches, I started off about 1 feet off the ground, I can even hover at 3 inches off the ground when I first removed my training gear, I've only 14th flight so far and flying it up and down between 2 inches to 5 ft off the ground forward and back in control
. once its setup right, you learn a lot quicker, it is a good heli for beginner imo.

sorry for late reply, only thing I can tell you is that the stock esky TX will put HH mode to full gain if you use the TX switch, and that over rides the setting you have on the Gyro itself, for that I am upgrading mine to Futaba as well, and I be getting a 2.4G while I'm at it with a few more channels for some gadgets in the future build of my Trex SE V2 Airwolf:)
