Ok, when it is hovering, it tilts to the left, like u are giving it left aileron..I trim it so it is straight..2 hours later it is tilting to the right, like right alieron...Take out the ail trim and it is perfect again, for a while then it starts all over again...And during forward flight at full throttle or climbing out, it leans to the right, like I'm giving it right aileron....All the linkages are fine, servo is fine, there is a very slight amount of play in the pitch slider where the main shaft goes thru...Any opinions on what is wrong?

How about the swashplate? Is there any rocking movement between the stationary portion and the rotating portion? I would remove it from the mainshaft and give it a good look over!

Double check your aileron servo mounting and possibly the servo gear set.

If this problem is in a new heli, double check your radio program for any mixing functions.

You didn't mention if this heli has been through the learning curve or new out of the box, so I just tossed in a few things to consider!

Fly it like you stole it!

Could it be a sloppy/worn washout base?

Are you by chance using a newly purchased JR 9303 radio?

The washout base does have a slight amount of play, it's got a lot of flights on it, probably about 20 gallons....

Hi,

is the swashplate and paddles, when you have the trims at zero, 100% horizontal?

8103, WHY ?????
i thought it was the wind too, but it's not that.....Maybe it is that little bit of slop in the washout.....Again at hover it will sit there once i trim it, and when i punch out it tilts to the right and then when i reduce throttle it tilts back to the left.....

Is the RPM the same all the time? Even slight variations can cause different behaviour of the whole system.

Paddles
Hey...

Check the alighnment of you're paddles.

That's what mine was doing a while back... had a guy look at it for me and right away he noticed the paddles were just a little off... aligned them and poof... problem solved.

Well I replaced the blue dampeners with red ones, and the problem stopped...I guess they were worn out..?? And on the first flight, the blades were extremely out of track, a whole 12 turns on 1 link...I cant figure that one out, but it flies fine now....Thanks for the replys......

Worn out
Man, 12 turns on 1 link to bring it back into track. That must have set some type of record.

Glad it is flying right now. Must have been a bear to fly before.
