Has anyone in this forum any experience or feed back with this fairly new autogiro from hobby king?

Apparently they fly straight out of the box but the 3 blade rotor head on mine is way out of track and no way to adjust. obviously lots of vibration and needs sorting. Have checked and balanced the blades but still have the problem.

any help will be welcome.

Thanks in advance.

I initially had that problem with my G1. It was fixed by replacing the offending blade.

If you look closely, you will probably find that one of the blades has a slight bent near the root. More than likely, that is your problem. I flew mine initially with the head out of track. Yes, it caused some vibes but it still allowed me to get the hang of auto gyros.

You also might want to replace the inboard blade screw with a nylon screw. I drilled and tapped the hole for 3mm. This way if a blade strikes the ground, it will fold back saving the blade from damage.

Cocktail sticks to replace one of the blade screws per blade is a common MOD
