I think I have the V1 model. I upgraded the swasch and this thing is still a handfull. I have played and played with tryin to track the blades. Impossible.......... So I fly with the blades out of track mabe a 1/4 inch. This little thing is every where. I have made other post and many of you guys have made suggestions(THANKS). But I'm not getting results. I have no problem with buying a newer version if I no for sure that it will fly more predictable and smoother. I DONT WANT TO GIVE UP ON THIS HELI.... I do fly nitro, so I'm not a newbe. A little help gentelman............

Thanks much

T-rex V2 is better but don't give up flying the V1.

I've got a V1 and love it. No problems with tracking on mine, although a read a lot about the align cnc washout arms fixing the tracking. I did the eccpm mod right away, so I never flew it stock. It responds much quicker that my larger heli, so I've got to stay on top of it, but it's really not hard to hold in a steady hover. It's 3d's very well too.

Are any of your linkages too tight? Have you checked for slop in them? Are your paddles aligned? Finally, do your blades have an warp in them?

Being Everywhere!

In my opinion, the reason why your V1 being everywhere is due to the EXPO setting. It seems you have not set EXPO settings of your channels especially 1, 2, perhaps 4 as well. If you put EXPOs to 20%-30%, that thing flies fairly stable for beginners like me.

I was flying Pic PRO with the fairly good setting (hands off 6 secs hover in no wind) for sport. I never dared to fly that Pro higher than 5 meters and farther than 10 meters from myself. Because this little things can dropped or swept away by a little breeze of wind any time, the tail can fail any time. And the cost of such failure is as big to reassemble, and replacing more than half of the whole mechanics, plus some electronics (if not lucky). The most disappointing thing is when you had to reassemble, that glue thing is the one which pists me off. You can never get back to its new and clean form.

Without even properly tracking of blades (just to weight) I brought my TRex circles, fig 8, Zig Zag, in the whole window (flying field) of a big gym size, out door (not very windy) and up&down easily.

Your Practice and Patience only succeeds!

Sounds like your head, washout, flybar control arms.

At the least you should getthe Align plastic head with 2 dampers instead of your 1. Helps a lot. The other metal Align upgrades are worthwhile to help tracking too. (Flybar holder, mixer arms etc.)

Good luck!

Expo does help too. Go CCPM! Its the way forward and cheap with 3Des kit.

trying to remember, increasing expo will soften control movements at mid stick positions on tx correct.

Do not tie the main rotor too much. I would loose them up until they drop down on their weights. I also added two plastic pieces for each blade to avoid frictions between blades and blade holders (see picture - oops don't know how to post a picture).

make sure all the links and levers move freely under their own weight. when every thing is moving freely you should be able to blow on the flybar paddle and it will drop to one side. also check to see if your pitch servo is centering the swashplate properly. if its not centering properly someting on the head is to tight. this will cause unsteady flight as i experienced until i got everthing freed up. mine flys really smooth now.

You should try another set of blades to see if you can get them to track but I have yet to have a set that would not track. I have a V1 kit, the only real difference is the half cnc swash. Make sure you have no friction in your swash ball. If you upgraded to the cnc swash you would have a V2 kit. Depending on how old your V1 kit is, you may need to upgrade to the newer ball links as well. If you haven't done the eCCPM mod yet that will make a big difference. You should definately be able to calm down the heli without expo if everything is free of binding.
