Question mSR question

I have one and I like it a lot but I found that I had to put in a bunch of sub-trim for
forward stick (down elevator) to a value of about 30 - 35 to get it to hover otherwise
it would continually drift backwards. Not too big a deal, I guess, but I was wondering
if anybody else has had this same experience? My thoughts were that maybe I could trim
it out with just a little weight in the very nose of the canopy rather than using up the
servo travel with all the trim.

Any thoughts from you other mSR fliers??

Helicopters don't really fly.......
They're just so ugly, that the earth repels them.

ours flew pretty much hands off in a hover out of the box. I have put a few clicks maybe 5 at most back or forth to conter wind or whatever but that seems like alot is the sash not level if your trim is in the middle? adjust the link if its off very much.

Adjust the elevator servo to give more forward than aft stick, or add weight to the nose.

Pop off the ball link on the servo arm and turn the link out some. Half turn, full turn, whatever it takes. Make adjustments until your trim setting is where you want it.

Always strive to be the person your dog thinks you are!

Hi Jim! Its good to see (hear, read) from you again. To improve my forward momentum I just turned each servo link in (clockwise) exactly one turn and my MSR is a hot rod. I save my MCX for indoor cause its just too tempting to lean on the sticks to my MSR and crash into any indoor obstacle and my MSR is much too valuable a tool to risk damaging indoors. Its a classic and absolutely fun to show off its abilities in front of people who are used to TV clicker tech toys from the dept stores. There are upgrades but they're not foolproof and I'm a tremendous fool. Returned it to stock for the time being and I'm happy again.

Had same problem with mine. Adjusting the servo rods did the trick. Also, I had some issues with throw rate while in dual rate mode. It would fly better backwards as well as the left, but was very sluggish forward and to the right. So I set the trims to the mid most setting(long beep) and did all the trim adjustments with the servo rod ends. Now it flys in all directions at about the same rate. Still a little sluggish in forward flight though. Probably hard wired that way to help us new pilots out.

However, it spins faster to the left then it does to the right. So my right turns are great, and my left turns suck. Any Suggestions? I figure i'll need a DX6i or something to fix this issue rather than the stock TX.

You always have to make sure the battery is shoved fully forward or it will deffinately want to drift backwards and the battery usualy needs put back up after a crash. Just to lt you know if you haven't noticed that yet.
