Hi everyone,

This is my first post on Heli Freak, looks like an awesome website!!! Was wondering if you could help me out....

I've been having some problems with my CX2 lately. Its been pretty much flying hands off. I can fly it nose in and pretty much spot land it wherever I want.


But recently the heli has been acting really loose during flight, I constantly have to be on the right stick to keep it from going nuts. It seems as though it skids to the right and then to the left. Its very hard to control. Does anyone have a recommendation as to how to get it back to the way it was? I would like to adjust the gyro but I am not sure what to adjust. The tail seems ok and doesn't drift at all, its more of the body skidding left and right, and then sometimes it goes in a circle...very difficult to fly to fly all of a sudden..

thanks!

Check for a bent flybar or binding in the swash or at any of the ball links.

I thought I posted to this already..hehe..check your lower head for a bent pin. IMHO the two parts you should immediately upgrade to Aluminum are the upper and lower heads. Another unrelated tip is to boil your landing skids and allow them to slowly cool. This makes them bend rather than snap.

Haha yeah you did Jermo, i'm checking out Heli Freak to see what others have to say.

I think its my flybar, I looked it over and its pretty twisted. I tried to straighten it out wit some pliars but it made it worse. I bet thats the problem.
