I have a 450 heli with a Vbar.

Seems to fly fine, however, when flying very fast in FF, it develops a slow (2 cps) pitch oscillation.

Any ideas what might cause this?

Thanks,

-Dave

Without knowing more details about your setup, it sounds like your pitch gain is set too high. Try adjusting your gain down a few points and see if that helps.

I have a 450 that does the same so I did some searching since it will benefit us both. From the looks of it, almost all have been fixed with just using different blades. I'm running the stock Align 325 blades and read another thread where they were using the same. They bought Edge blades and problem was solved.
Edge is out of business so maybe Switch blades will do the trick????

I tried dropping down the pitch gain and it seems to have worked. No pitch change at all.

Thanks!

I'm glad that helped you out. Just remember when it comes tuning a heli...start with the simplest most direct solution first.

....just changing blades would not have solved your problem as much as it would have masked it. Learning how to adjust your FBL controller to get the best performance will ensure your heli flies well under any circumstance with no surprises.

Have fun
