I crashed my T-rex 500 a very small dent in the tail boom which is Ok for now but I bent the main shaft. I changed this and spooled up the heli all is OK no wobble, Now I as I give it throttle it seems like it won't lift off the ground. Don't know why I checked with picth gauge at 0 throttle baldes are at 0 also. Can someone help me out.
Thanks
Newbie

I would recheck your head setup. Make sure you are getting your full pitch range.

Need more info. What’s your pitch reading at full positive collective? (Be sure the disable the motor when checking this!!)
What’s your pitch curves?

you need to check the feathering shaft. I'd be willing to bet it is bent as well. I once had a machine that would perform perfectly on the bench, but would not move the collective enough at speed to lift off. The feathering shaft was bent.
