So as NOT to tarnish a good post that was STUCK here...

(GREAT post Bill_Van!!!)

My last posts here, were a subtle cry out for help with the 230S. I finally got my bird back in the air! After reading alot here and help from someone who knows helicopters.

According to Horizon Hobby rep David, I needed to perform the latest Firmware Update, then do a Calibration and followed by a Trim Flight. This would fix any drifting issues. I don't suspect the Version 2 heli has these issues? Maybe why the Firmware is up to 4.22 or 4.23? Info for ALL of these can be foundin this forum.

Regardless, to add here to Bill's original sticky'd post, DO THESE NEEDED steps first!

I have both the V1 and V2. The little dance the V1 does on spool up doesn't bother me at all. My V2 never danced and has been recently gutted and swapped into a new 210 frame. One thing I noticed about the V2 receiver, is the weight. I should have weighed it but it has got to be at least 10 grams heavier. I wonder if sticking a lead weight to the top of the V1 RX case would help at all?
