Are we talking 1/4" in diameter? If so, that's a little much. I used 1/8" wooden dowels about 36" long on my GuLang 450S heli and it worked great. Didn't really have a problem with it weighing it down. You should be ok if you go with 1/8" dia dowels or carbon rods.

Did you crash her? There a mate in your neck of the woods who has helped me alot with MY heli. His name is David M.

Try giving him a hollar friend. Sorry I couldn't be more help. My 4cg heli just needed some trimming and she was right on the money...of course it still took some practice even to just get her hovering in one spot.

Not at all mate!! My 4ch heli wasn't the greatest in the world either, and it was difficult to know what the problem of something not working WAS, right after a crash. Many wattheads recommend learning on an actual 6ch heli. This is because the 4ch birds fly nothing like the 6ch ones, and other than hovering it doesn't prepare you for flying the 6ch birds. It also forces you to learn about the basics of heli flight. Just stick with it and you'll get it soon. Good luck mate.
