Hello,
Can anyone advise how I can make the Hummingbird FP more docile?

Would reducing the length of the fly bar make the bird more sluggish? Or would increasing the paddle weight be enough?

Thanks

Try adding some exponential on the cyclic. Flybar weights will also help. Try a steel flybar the same length with some weights. You can use wheel collars for weight but you need to make sure the head is balanced with the weights.


Micros are harder to fly than large helicopters. If you are having that much trouble you need a lot more simulator practice.

Blah, simulators are for wussies, buy more blades and skids!

Funny thing is, even though I was too cheap to buy (or too lazy to make) a simulator cable for my TX, I was more than willing to pay for tons of blades, skids, tail rotors, main frames, etc. So yah, what BTS said

Tilt both paddles up about 20 degrees. This will slow things down a little more.
