HelicopterHIROBOOther › Nose too sensative (up/down direction) - Any advise

I got some strength up/down movments on my Freya.
The heli is balanced as said in the manual - that is I don't have a heavy / light nose but:

When I go on a straight line say left to right on a high speed the up/down direction looks sensative causing me to try and correct it too many times .

While hovering or low speed FF all seems to be OK.

Do you thing that adding weight to the fly bar will help?

Any ideas?

Are you using the stock Freya paddles? If so, which weights do you have installed? (both, or just lead, or just brass?)

Did you install the balls on the servo horns with the distances suggested in the manual or did you choose a larger distance ?

On my Raptor 60 I had the same problem. By using smaller servo horns I was able to eliminate that.

So, if you chose a larger distance that could be your problem.

Also check that your paddles are aligned properly - both seen from the top of the rotorhead and from the side (flybar could be bent).

Paddles

I would re-check paddle alignment, spent some time yesterady with a friends Freya, the threads on the flybar was damaged so when the set screw was turned in it made the paddle change angle. Fixed the threads and the the paddles aligned easier.
Before when going in FFF the nose really turned down, and he had to correct all the way, after paddle fix it went straight.
Hope it sorts out!

Movement

I have a friend and his model began to do the same thing. The model had a lot of hours on it. He replaced all the balls and links on the model. After replacing the parts the problems went away.
