yo guys, i am new to engined helis and CP, when i move throttle stick forward, the collective pitch servo turns and raises swashplate but only ONE of the main blades changes its pitch and the other stays still. Is this correct???

Both should move, are the flybar at the same level when raising the stick? Hold the flybar still, and try again!

Yes, the flybar should tilt when holding the heli on its side. It should be able to flap around pretty easily.

If you built the model exactly as the plans show, I would suspect that the ball links need to be sized. This is most easily done with a ball link sizing tool that can be purchased from many model supply houses. Usually, the links need to be “reamed out” a little, for a nice, light fit. Sizing every link on your heli will make a world of difference to how smooth it flies, and will make it easier to control. Good luck!
