servos with a smile :-))

caall99, your heli seems badly out of track & trim, else it would stay up longer (hopefully with an interim rest to cool).

Because the upper, stabilizing rotor is controlled by a flybar at 45, not 90, everything in the lower control rotor (controlled by the servos!) is skewed 45 in a counterclockwise direction [90 - 45].

So in this configuration the right servo acts as if was inputting 45 further to the left. It acts like it was inputting from the front of the swashplate!

Thus the right servo IS the fore/aft servo! And the left servo is the L/R servo!

Trust me. Just memorize the above 2 sentences, whether or not they seem logical to you.
