after two really great flights this morning, I noticed that in a tail in hover the blades were out of track on my 90SE. But only on the heli's "left" side...I don't think I flew it hard enough to bend the feathering shaft. any ideas?

Maybe the o-rings in the head have flat spotted (worn out).

Check the thrust bearings on the side that is going out of track.

Also could be a slightly bent flybar shaft or out of alignment paddle. Those black steel flybar's can get slightly tweeked pretty easily when carrying the heli.

Tracking out on one side is almost always a paddle alignment issue.

Same way as you only get a flat spot on the bottom of a tyre i suppose!!

I'll check paddle alignment. I re-lubed my o rings in my gforce head so we'll see if that solves it!

When my Heli went out of track on one side it was a bent spindle. Take it out an roll it on a glass surface.

To check for a bent spindle with less dis-assembly: Remove one main blade and put a driver on the screw in the end of the spindle and turn it - watching the tip of the blade. If the spindle has any bend at all, the tip will move quite a bit. Just to be sure put the blade back on and try from the other end - if you still see nothing, the spindle is straight.

It has to do with the difference in lift that is created by the advancing and retreating of the paddle/blade.
