I have a question. When I give my heli full throttle and does not seem to want to rise very fast at all. I'm used to my Heli's popping up...it the head speed just low on this thing? Thanks in advance

If your main gear slips down a bit on the main shaft, the heli won't get full pitch. Check for up and down play in the mainshaft.

There should be no up and down play. Push the main gear up until it stops (this should remove the up and down play) and fly it again. The gear and mainshaft both have a flat spot. Make sure these flat spots are lined up before pushing the main gear up.

It probably means you should buy a quality 450

Seriously though, I like my 130 when it works. Unfortunately it quickly became a large money pit for such a small heli. If Blade would re-design the tail slider, change the servos and come out with a better/stronger TT setup, it could be a MUCH better heli.

I have thrown an embarrasing amount of money at this little heli and it still just flies "ok"... when it flies

...check

Up and down slop on mainshaft/gear.

Binding, maingear mesh with pinion too tight (ream out motor screw holes just a little) should be a very very small back and forwards movement between the main and motor pinion, but not too much.

Links badly adjusted, zero pitch should make the blades (when folded back together) be level with one another.

Bad meshing of the tail gears, shim the mainshaft under the collar, but unlikely on a stock A plastic gear.

Charger not charging fully.

Batteries going bad.

Warning...This hobby is very addictive and may damage your wealth
