Hey all,

When I do a back flip with my titan, it seems to always slowly start rolling out to left. If I did just one, most probably wouldnt notice it as it is very slight. But when I do continuous back flips, it continues a slow roll to left where by the 6th or 7th my heli is almost knife edge and doing a knife edge flip before I bail out. I checked all linkages with a dial indicator and made sure they are same. Also had my friend watch my fingers on transmitter as I did them to make sure I wasnt putting some left stick into the manuever. I am running a Kasama head block, blue dampners, radix 600's.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Good question, I should have mentioned it. The forward flips seem to stay much more in line (less roll) but cant do them as fast as I can a back flip if that makes sense?

Sounds like thumbs then,

If the phasing was of, for whatever reason. then aileron would be affected by either extreme of elevator.

Sound fairley normal, all helis will require some ail correction during flips

You could be adding the slightest amount of aile that someone watching the sticks wouldn't pick up on. Perhaps even some rudder. You can try pulling the stick back purely from the top side, allowing the return spring to keep the ail centered.

However, it's asking a lot to expect no additional corrections during continuous flips. It's good practice to learn how to move it around while flipping, which will give better control when you want to hold it stationary.

You need to input corrections otherwise we would all be flying in the 2007 3DM!

OK..think of your model in an upright hover all trimmed out
then go hover it upside down..what do you notice??

Yes..It's a little out of trim..
Therefore 50% of the time it will be out of trim whilst flipping

There is a long winded complicated answer..

To put it simply it leans in the hover
