you will have to trim it. even though it says test flown at teh factory.
Just trim it from the remote.

I bought my Blade msr yesterday. I tested it out but it was flying all over the place. Tried trimming with tx but didn't make much difference. Took it apart and leveled swashplate and readjusted linkage. Broke the linkage ball on swashplate when I was putting it all together. I think I'm gonna love this heli.

Prolly shoulda centered the trims and bind the tx again make sure you have a hot battery and check the swash with the calibration tool. Usually everything's set mechanically out of the box. Keep in mind the links go on the balls one way.

Thanks for the info TXBiker. It works great! I think I need to get a magnifier when working on the mechanics...too small and too dark! I might try a CNC swashplate if the plastic one breaks again. Appreciate the info.

LOL ya they're small.....I got some bifocal safety glasses from work so I can see mine....I rebuilt the head on mine last week from the swash up. It needed it with over 400 flights. The antirotation collar was worn thin where the links ride in it, same with the guides on the head. I'm about ready for a new main motor it's taking more input to keep it flying now. Anyway what I've found to keep it flying stable and consistent is make sure the head is free with absolutely no binding (just a slight amount kills it) use the calibration tool regularly especially after a crash, and if your using the factory tx re bind when you notice flights going down hill. The only aluminum part I used was the cusker blade grips. They had a little bind which caused some tbe after I worked it with a drill bit the same size as the feathering shaft it flew great. My blades fold back tons further than stock also 150 flights on'em now and haven't broken anything.
