bully234 do you have a simulator?
They are worth a bajillion dollars in helicopter parts and stress relief.
Kids naturally learn even faster on them than us "grown-ups" (and I use that term loosely)
Without a sim, I would have never been able to afford this awesome hobby.

You don't have to start off with the best one. Just get something. They are all good for basic training.

Not Level Until Top
First let me ask if you have the model set up in the transmitter (tx) as a heli??? If not, that is where to start... I had to ask, and I know that since you have the swash mix working that it most likely is... but confirm it...

Next would be to unplug two leads to your motor...now arm the heli..
With that done... move the throttle/pitch stick to exactly 1/2 position... now all three of the servo arms should be at exactly 90 degrees (straight)to the servo...
If they are very close, you will adjust them to neutral with the sub trim in you tx.. BUT, try to pull one arm at a time and get it as close to straight by moving it one spline at a time on the servo output gear...
So, you have done the mechanical set up on the arms and they are still out...NOW is when you go to sub-trim in your menu...you will pick one servo at a time, and move the sub trim either + or - as needed to get the arm at 90 degrees..once you have all three at 90 degrees, still at half stick, take a good look at your swash plate and make sure it is level..if it is not, take one link off at at time and move it in or out as needed until the swash is level all the way around...once done... now move the throttle stick and watch the swash... it should be level through the entire movement from low to high and high to low...
Hope this helps you out...

I sent you a PM this morning describing basically the same thing that Stan suggested above. The other thing I would try is to reverse the servo directions in the transmitter if they are not all moving the same direction.

Let's try and get together either some evening this week or over the weekend. It's a lot easier to show you how to do this than trying to explain it.

swash needs to be level in all three positions full up full down and in mid stick and you need to have the right model set in the radio or transmitter

Also while bench testing your SR not only should you disconect the main motor leads, but also the tail motor, you can simply unplug it. There should be a connector near where the boom meats the frame. I had to learn this the hard way, a little bit of blood was involved
Safety first! These things can be dangerous, so don't ever let your guard down.

Remember to keep everything balanced!

beginners
Hello bully and welcome to the hobby. Helicopter are a true challenge and Can be frustrating for us all, if you want to be triumphant in this hobby find a club close to you and find what they fly and purchase what they suggest you will receive more help that way and they have already experienced the up's and downs of those models. Now my take on simulators is bya simulator that has it all therefore you can try everything and truly challenge yourself and also find out of you truly want to go with helicopter or airplanes, hexcopters, quadcopters etc. I recommend the Realflight 7 which had all aircraft's and once purchase you can try everything. There is a process for Heli's IMO I would learn how to build which will help with repairing, then work your way into programing and while your working on all that practice on flight such as, tail in, nose left, nose right,nose in, hovering in all orientations I could go on and on but if you'd like any more suggestions feel free to ask. I'm in Bessemer, AL and your welcome to contact us if you have the time to come over and we would give you as much help as we can, again welcome to the hobby which had the biggest and oldest kids alive
