MCP X Blade tracking
I have a new MCP X and the blades keep going out of track badly right at 0 pitch.

Usually after passing through 0 they will come back into track and they seem to be ok before 0 pitch.

Is this normal? If so it is very frustrating.

Any ideas?

I read in another post somewhere about how even with optimal blade grip tightness (blade barely able to fall under its own weight without shaking) the stock grips still have enough play to screw with the blade tracking. In the post the guy simply put 1 layer of scotch tape around the blade roots (must make hole for grip bolt) to get a more snug fit. I geuss this fixed his tracking and vibration issues. I havent tried it but it might work for youNormally trees and heli's dont mix..

So under load they are fine but with no load they are out.

Try swapping to the fast forward blades to eliminate the blades.
It will only take a sec

I think it could be a bent feathering shaft as stated above. Mine was damaged and i would get vibration with different amounts of collective. New feathering shaft and all is well. Good luck.
