Default Front to back pitching motion while in flight

Hey everybody!

I have one Apache flying great and I have another one that would be flying great if I could get rid of a odd problem. During flight this one has a medium front to back pitching motion while in the air. It basically flies OK and hovers reasonably well except for the galloping. Any clues?

Download the advanced setup manual and try gain cyclic changes.

Where would I find the advanced setup manual?

I recall when I first got this heli I found where to adjust the gains in a manual.

this thing looks cool but flying it has been frustrating I should of gotten new not previously enjoyed.

would love to have this dialed in for this upcoming season

Hello,

I had success in eliminating the 'Front to back pitching motion’ by:

1. Changing the battery. Use new ones.
2. Adjusting the gain. You need to play around with it till you get it right. Nut then you will be making the heli kinda .. smooth .. If you are into scale flight, which in my opinion is this heli is meant for !!

Hope it helps..

Happy flying

I'm still chasing mine a bit but it has gotten better I have gain 1 and 2 down to 85 I think on my next battery I will go to 80 and hopefully that will do it.

I do admit this thing looks sweet in the air. much like the red bull one did.

anyone else notice the battery and the motor get HOT after a 3 min flight
