If I'm not mistaken, it will remain parallel to the rotor disk if there is no outside influence or force acting upon it. It's basically a mechanical gyro, helping counteract for wind etc. All heli's have a tendency to lean slightly and the flybar is just compensating for it. One of the other guys can give you technical ins and outs, but it's dry reading lol.R.I.P. Roman

Should be level in a hover. Check your linkages and angles.

In flight other than a hover, it will not be parallel to the main rotor disk.
It changes with speed.

Make sure your flybar is stright.
Edit: I'm talking about the flybar rod.

may not be level if you have a cross-wind

more precisely, it should be level with zero relative wind. Part of the function of the flybar is to react to relative wind.

The helicopter might be "hovering" over one spot of the ground, but if there is a 15 mph headwind, the helicopter will behave as if it were in forward flight.

If your mechanical setup is spot-on, and there is no crosswind, the heli may still have a very slight lean to the right. it's natural for a heli to lean in a hover...

Think about it - the tail is pushing air to the right to stop from spinning around. Newton's third law of motion and all that, the result is the heli will want to drift to the left. To counter this, it needs to hover with a slight right tilt to stay in one spot.

Its called translating tendency and all helicopters with a tail rotor lean in a 0 wind hover (though some full scale offset the angle of the main shaft)Andy

A new flyer is asking about something he observed while flying his heli. We are attempting to explain why what he observed happens.
