Loose!

Yes the control links and connections need to be free not loose. The movement should be with the resistance of the servos only. Free to move about there mounting, not loose. The linkage should move the servo as soon as the blades move. If the servos are hard to move by hand don't force them to move by twisting the blades If these vage answers dont give you peace please be very specific as to what you are noticeing O-yes and the flybar will seam very loose as it moves up and down that is normal mike

If you followed the manual and have everything setup then yes the flybar will move up and down as well as the main rotor blades will turn freely because a clutch is involved. if you grab the flybar paddle and twist it right or left and get resistance the reason there is because it's connected to the servo which it should be. recheck your manual to make sure. ken

what i should have said is that i thought there should not be any play in the blades or flybar, they move when the servos move them but i can still move them by hand, the fly bar tilts side to side freely and so do the blades , i thought maybe that i sould not be able to move them at all unless the servos move them. maybe someone should ask me some things to try to tell if it is normal.
thanks

I think you you are asking if the fly bar should tilt from side to side and adjust the pitch of the blades when it does. The answer is yes. Seems strange, but that is how it works.... The servos actually move the flybar, which in turn move the blades.

I could not get my tail servo wire to run smoothly through the boom support. It runs on the outside of mine with out problem. I adjusted the other guides to allow the wire to run smoothly and then "spot welded" them in place with a drop of CA. So far so good.
