The EVO flew for the first time last night. Things were not perfect but I got it off the ground and back in one piece. I had some tail control issue's. I had it hooked up backwards. I'm still not sure what happened. I guess a right yaw input is not always a push with the servo wheel. I'm getting it out of the jeep as soon as I get done here to look it over. Things happen a little to fast at the field sometimes for this old man to keep up with. Being a novice you don't know much yet and everyone wants to help (WHICH IS A GOOD THING, SO DON'T EVERYONE GET UPSET) and sometimes the novice gets left behind. Anyway I did get it up twice and one thing I can say is, it is way more docile than my Trex450. One question I have is for some reason my blade track was WAY OFF. When I put the pitch gage on the blades both blades are set the same. I checked them at more than one spot in the collective range and they are very-very-very close at every point I checked. Now when I say they are out of track my helper said they were out about one and a half inches. I don't know if they were out that much but they were certainly out. I just don't know how they can be set so close in pitch and be out so bad. Is there something else that I should be looking at? It got dark and I wanted to try a change I made on the Trex so thats where I pick up today.
