i have a blade 400 heli and it flys awsome but the servo arms are not level. does that mean i need to shorten some and lengthen some of the linkages to make it level? also when i fly in regular flight mode when i power throw the turns quickly i get a wag on the tail. should i just fly it in flight mode 1 or 2 so i am always in power? it has the 401 gryo with matching tail servo, besides that i can't complain with it nice bird

on the servo question if you have a spectrum radio or something with 2.4 and you got tons of setting go to the sub trim and make sure there zeroed out. then once you do that take the servo horns of and put them on level. Then once you do that if you swash is not level thats when you do adjustments to the linkages.

UNPLUG any two motor wire`s, and make sure you have NO sub-trim or trim set in the radio.
with the pitch curve set to 0,25,50,75,100 in stunt and normal, run the throttle up half way.
now look at the servo arm`s/horn`s, they should be sticking striaght forward (towards the front of the heli) i`m talking about the two stack together.(pitch & alerion) the elevator servo (the one under the battery) the horn/arm should be some what striaght across the servo.
but more importantly, the slave arm behind the motor should be sticking strieght forward (toward`s the front of the heli)

now with the servo arm`s at 90, check that the swashplate is level and at the MANUAL`S recommended hiegth.
after swash is level, move to the washout arm`s, they should be level as well.
then move to main blade`s and make sure you have (0) pitch at half throttle.

as far as the tail problem.
make sure you have NO slop in the grip`s and pitch slider. any slop in this area on the blade400 will cause many of unwanted problem`s.

crash`s come easy patience`s doesnt
