I put woodies back on my 450, as the MS-composites I was using didn't seem to hold their track at all. I'd have to adjust it every time I flew. While fixing the tracking on these woodies, I noticed I can get the tracking perfect on the leading edge as the blade comes around, but the trailing edge looks to be a bit off... Any ideas?

Perhaps one blade (or both!) is twisted, or perhaps one is giving more flex. Try a different set of woodies.

Never, ever, ever, ever give up.

Look for a loose ball. This can mess with the tracking as well.

Tracking issues as you have described can be caused by links not being evenly adjusted.

rubbers
and
loose balls
Definitely will keep that in mind. Kind of go together, don't they.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

Lol.... try 2 inspect my balls every flight, but the rubbers haven't been changed in at least the last 15... Linkages are another possibility... I spent quite awhile fighting those MS-Composites for tracking w/ no luck.

Check your paddles too, They need to be perfect. Check your flybar length from cage too.

I used to get this problem on my V1 SE that used a seasaw with bushings instead of bearings. The bushings will eventually wear and the resulting play would cause the tracking problems you're describing.

There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."

Check your Shaft, your rubbers and your balls very closely.

allso it is quite common for your wood to have a slight bend in it.
