Have just found a problem with my SR which i thought would share.
Did a test hover and started setting up trims etc until all seemed ok also checked tracking and was spot on.

Took main blades off to see if balanced and again fine. Put back together and tracking way out.

After some thought put blades back on but on opposite blade holders as had not marked what blade went on what blade holder when took off, and low and behold spot on. Have now set up pitch gauge to see how far out when reversed and is +4% difference.

Have done this test 3 times now and same result.

So in my case if tracking out make a note of what blade went on which blade holder and reverse first instead of altering links.

Would be interesting to see if any one has seen the same.?

Also would like to know what others have for there pitch settings.
Mine are bottom stick -5% mid +3% and top stick +12%

Hmmmm interesting situation. Before my SR got in the air my friend checked the factory set up and made changes to dial the heli in more. He also set up the programming for me and I have all of my settings in my flight log. I'll post my pitch settings when I get off work. I'm new to CP heli's and all of my gear is tuned to that fact. I don't remember if my blades went back on the grips they came off of when we set it up. I wouldn't think that it'd make a difference which blade went on which grip. Stranger things have happened. I'll bring this up this evening when I meet my friend for more flight training and see what he thinks and look at mine when we go to the bench after.

I have my pitch at +/- 10 degrees right now.
It flys nice in idle up at 100% flat.

I literally never use the word literally right.

Hi
it is not all that unusual for wooden blades to have a slight twist , and this would explain what you have experienced
