Loosen the screws and watch them bend. Especially if you added more forward pitch.

I guess you saw that the forward links are keyed on the bottom. Turning them so the keys face outward didn't work for some reason.
You are right, I had added forward pitch. I am really impressed how sturdy this heli is after so many crashes form 20-30 ft high. The only brake is the left landing skid which I repaired with CG.
