Hi All,
Got the bird flying again this morning. Hovering in the driveway 6"-1.5' depending on the breeze. Here's the deal. One more click on the throtle stick and it's "see ya, I'm going flyin". Just not quite ready to fly it around the front yard at roof top level yet, know what I mean? What do I adjust? Dave

CHECK 6

Open transmitter, remove the "click."

Does your collective stick (left stick) have notches in it? If so, it is tough to find the "sweet spot" of pitch where the heli likes to hover. If you remove those notches (take the TX back off and reverse the metal bar that puts tension on the collective gimbal) it will be much easier to make small collective pitch adjustments.

As an alternative, you could "flatten" out your pitch curve in the hovering region so that one click on the collective stick equates to a smaller change in mechanical collective pitch.

Hope that makes sense, I have had a few beers tonight...
