Hi there

I have a Raptor 60 pretty much standard equiped and flying well.

But I have a strange "problem" that I can not solve:

On the bench I adjust the swash plate to be level, with the servos at neutral. Everything should be good.
But when I lift off the ground with the heli - I have to make significant adjustments to the Elev./ Ail. neutral position on the radio.
When adjusted to hang stable it is OK and will hold the setup - but on the bench it looks crooked (the swash plate).
Is that normal or am I missing something?

Let me know if it all makes sense :-)

Thanks in advance.
Best regards

How well is it balanced with half tank of fuel?

In the elevator direction it sounds like a CG issue, either fore or aft. Try and balance heli with half tank of fuel and if can{t get it perfect you´d rather have it slightly nose heavy vs tail heavy. If you trim the heli for hands off hover, no wind, then swash will have slight tilt to the right to correct for sideways thrust of tail rotor.

beating the air into submission...........cool!

Thanks for the quick answers!
You are probably right. I will check the balance with half tank of fuel.

Thanks again.
