Beam first flight
I got my Beam first flight and it flew great. I did have some tail drift to the left. I am using the 401 and the 9257. Is it a gain issue?

That sounds like a killer setup, although i have yet to get my beam in the air (waiting for those Damn Servos!!) i am familiar with 450s and with that setup is sure sounds like gain, go as high as you can go until you get wag and then back it down .5 at a time until the wag is gone, thats the best way to find that sweet spot."I hover like a Pro"

One other tip on the drift.
Make sure your gyro is mounted solid with no vibrations.
When I first got my Beam, I had mounted the 401 in the bottom CF plate under the boom mount. It drifted really bad no matter where I had the gain set.
When I moved it above the boom mount, it held the nose like a rock.
The problem was, on my machine, the CF mount under the boom was a little loose. You could wiggle it around a bit. This was enough to cause vibration issues causing the gyro to drift.

When I looked at other Beam's at IRCHA, none of them had a loose bottom CF plate like mine did.

Sounds like a gain issue, increase the gain until you see tail wag then start backing it off a little at a time until it holds solid. The Beam E4 is a solid, stable bird and you should have no issues getting the tail to hold.BEAM TEAM USA

my bottom CF plate was the same way, and I got rid of the wiggle by squirting hot glue in the pocket the plate tabs sit in and that tightened it up... I have mine mounted underneath the boom now without any issues....But Honey, I can't live with just stock.....

Thanks for the tips. I will take a look at my plate-yes, it is on the bottom. I will check for no wiggle and solid mount. I will leave feedback later.rightflyer
