Vbar Issue
I have a Logo 400SE with a Mini Vber 5.3 that I've flown at least 100 times with no major problems. When I was flying the other day it was flying great, then about 2 minutes in the flight I flipped it in a nose in inverted hover and it started leaning to the right. Then I flipped it right side up and it was still leaning. The next night I plugged it up to a battery and move the swash plate around and it started leaning to the left (looking at the front) when I pushed the throttle up. So I hooked the Vbar up to the computer and went threw the setup and didn't find anything wrong. Its also level at mid stick. Dose anyone know what could be causing this.

Try switching the two aileron servos at the Vbar.
If it then leans right you probably have a servo problem.
If it still leans left, I think it must be in the Vbar.

Assuming the mechanicals are all ok.

When moving the sticks around on the bench the swash is going to act strange and most likely start tilting. That is normal. Now doing it in flight is not. Like suggested, eliminate the servo first. Feel the servo while it is sitting on the bench. Does it feel like it is vibrating or buzzing more then the others? If the servo checks out ok I would take a close look at the thrust washers and bearings in the head. Make sure they are not dry or damaged.

Look at the live screen, do you see any inout from that channel? If the problem moved with the servo switch, you may have a bad servo...Team MikadoUSA 480XXTreme, 550SX, 600SX, 700XXTreme, 800XXTreme!!

It stays level at mid stick, but when I push up and down on the collective it leans. I watched the live display and it shows the Aileron and Elevator are level when the swash plate is leaning.RIP Roman

I don't see it being the Vbar since the problem followed the servo switch...but why it's the same after replacing them is over my head.
Perhaps 504Rone is right...something loose inside?

I just reversed my Aileron and Pitch servo and tested it on the bench.
Did you mean to say you swapped your servos?
Also, did you swap the servo positions as well as the plugs in the vbar or did you just change the plugs? Diagnosis would be completely different depending on what you actually did.
I just changed my Aileron and Pitch servo and it still leans.
When you say changed, do you mean replaced with new servos or that you swapped them?

OK, that's what I figured.
So, the leaning on the bench is not due to the servos...it's being commanded by the vbar.
Of course, as mentioned, that may not be your problem in flight. Do you have the pro upgrade? Anything in the logs?

BTW, when you say lean, how much are we talking about?

It leans enough in flight where I have to hold the cyclic to keep it straight. Also, I don't know if I have the pro upgrade or not. Mine is the Mini Vbar 5.3, how can I tell if I have the pro upgrade.RIP Roman

When you open the software in the main screen it will say "express" if you don't have the pro. Also, the gov tab will not open in the setup screen.
Any chance you stripped a servo arm?
