So i was looking at my HBFP v2 today and saw that it had other swashplate ball settings. Currently my HB is set to the stock shorter ball setup.
Would it benefit me to switch the links to the longer swashplate balls?

Ive finally progressed to some forward flight, the hardest thing for me to overcome...other than the wind is the helis tendency to "rock" backwards or forwards. Basically a shift in momentum, like a kid on a swing reaching his max height and starting to descend back down in the opposite direction.
Any tips on how to overcome problem.
Im guessing the answer is more stick time... working on that!

Yes, stick time. You can add a bit of expo to smooth heli.

Probably yes.

Did you put the stock blades back on?

Yea I did, I believe I can see a difference as well. Heli seems to fly a bit smoother without wanting to rock back the opposite direction. Good news for me!

As per your advice all try switching the links tomorrow and see if get some positive feedback.

Thanks again Dusty

Changed the ball links and I do believe the bee flies a bit better.

I pulled a nice move which ended up basically nose diving my bee into the dirt. To my surprise not a single thing was broken, minus a few stress cracks on the canopy.
I set it down and took off again.I did however notice that while flying the bee I had to subtrim it out in the opposite direction. So it spun clockwise now instead of the usual counterclockwise spinning I was used to. No big deal, 1/4 move of the slider for subtrim and it was fixed. Even more confusing is today when I flew, it was back to the normal counterclockwise spin.

Just wondering if anyone knows why this would happen. Its not a problem or anything I am trying to fix, Im just curious as to why it happened and then righted itself the next day.
