.Yes the trims on the radio are there for a purpose. LOL
I must admit my first flybarred flight a few days ago after about 5 years of FBL was a bit of a handful as it was quite windy!

However I used to adjust the swash linkages (don't use trim because then your servos are no longer at 90 at mid stick) so the swash was slightly tilted right to compensate for the tail rotor push which gives a 'hands off' hover BUT it means it's tilting the wrong way when inverted! So I now leave the swash level and it's much better for 3d.

60% of the time, it works every time!

Oh and I also have a question for the flybar gurus... does the max angle the flybar can pivot affect cyclic rate? I don't mean paddle pitch/angle I mean how much it sways/rocks?

The flybar on my Fury Extreme 90 only tilts about 10-15 degrees but my Trex's used to pivot a lot more than that. With the amount of cyclic I'm using, flybar length, paddles, head speed and dampening I should be getting faster cyclic so it got me wondering?
