On the v911, it's a screw. I think the tightness of the screw may be the cause of your TBE.
When I gave my new v911 a once over, I noticed that the flybar is free moving...but not free enough. If you guys haven't done enough modding, I don't think you guys understand how free the flybar has to move. Any binding, and it lags behind, causing TBE or more severe, causes the heli to veer off.
Given that the flybar is fixed in placed by a screw, I suspect each v911 will arrive with different tension on the flybar.
So take a moment to back off the screw just a tad. The flybar needs to teeter very, very, very, very, very freely.
Mine was free and when I recieved it, and I made sure there was plenty of play when I put it back together. Unfortunately when you leave the screw loose enough to provide plenty of movement, there's alot of slop. I'm going to see if I can get some thin plastic or metal washers to take out the slop.
I put the servo links back on the outer holes after I took her outside.......almost lost her over my two-story roof as she couldn't fight the wind. I'm glad the wind wasn't blowing towards our lake out back
