Default So I got an 120SR....

But for some reason when I try to take off, the heli will try going forward and to the right, continuing to angle until the blade smacks into the floor. Am I doing something wrong? I double-checked my DX7 setup, no trims are set and the controls seem to be set correctly. I double-checked the heli itself and everything seems to be assembled correctly.

Help?

I'm attempting to move up from a CX2, so if it's some sort of learning curve from going from a CX to a Fixed-Pitch, please don't delay in calling out my stupidity. I'm more than willing to learn if I know I need more knowledge.

Thanks!

First try to adjust using your tx trim adjustments to compensate. If tjat doesn't help, then you may need to manually trim the Heli by adjusting the servo ends for each servo. Pop them off the ball joints and turn them to shorten or lengthen them as needed. This will take a few times to get it settled. Make sure you set your tx trims dead center prior to doing this so that you can have their full potential when all is done.

On a side note. Some things to check first would be that your swash plate is aligned properly per instructions and that the back tip has not come out of it's guides. Also inspect the landing gear to make sure the Heli sits level. Another thing that could cause this is if one of your linkages have come off, though if it constantly yields the same result this probably isn't the problem.

Awesome, thanks for the tips.

I revisited the TX setup and I had mistakenly set it to 2-servos when it should be set to 1 servo.

Got it all trimmed out on the TX, then went back and adjusted the ball links to get the same level of trim mechanically, and now I have it set for perfectly level flight with a fresh battery with no trim dialed in on the TX. As the battery degrades, I have to dial in trim to keep it perfect, but considering how short the flight time is, I'm not going to worry about it.

Now to just get some more batteries...
