walkera dragonfly #4 (won't pitch forward)
I crashed my chopper pretty good breaking the mainframe, battery holder and a few other things.. I bought all new parts.. the main frame was kind of different, but not much.. Just didn't have the clips for snapping the servos in.. So I super glued them. everything went together fine. the servos looked identical, so the they may have been swapped but I'm not sure. anyway.. I'm pretty descent at flying this thing.. so I got it off the ground pretty fast and started flying.. only when flying backwards, Its real slow to respond forwards. its like it don't want to pitch the nose down, no matter how much I trim the nose down it just don't want to fly with any head speed at all.. When the tail is down.. Its almost impossible to get it back up. but It can still be done.. How can I get this to nose down faster?

Walkera #4
With the motors off (but radio on): trim ciclyc to neutral. Is the swashplate level? Now give it full FWD and full BACK elevator. Will the swashplate deflect forward/back? The same ammout both ways?

Are you sure you did not accidentally switch the servo control rods (elevator for aileron) when reinstalling the servos?

Good luck!

rods are the same length I think.
I'll check the swashplate when I get home from work, thanks for the input. As for the control rods, both servos looked identical, including the rods hanging off them, I may have swapped the servos around by accident, but the rods were exactly the same if I'm not mistaking. Thanks for the input, I'll re-post as soon as I check it.

main frame
I took the cover off, did as you asked, I see that the servo rod arm is hitting the frame, I may cut the frame to make this work right. As I said, the frame was different, But not much. I'm going to compare the frames one last time to see if it is actually the frames fault.. But I think it is! Thanks for the input!

Good! You may be in the right track, then.

Don't forget to post when you get it all sorted out and flying

Best regards,
Bruno.

Great support, thanks!
I forgot, I threw away the other frame, as I demolished the rest of it to get the bearings out.. HEH, anyway, I'm sure this will work after I take the dremel to it, thanks
