easy L/R macro trim trick

When observing the spinning lower rotor disc [heli in my hand] of a flight-trimmed 5888, I noticed that the swashplate was inputting a lot of left trim > blades had much more pitch on the right side. So to increase efficiency, I simply opened the canopy and slid the LIPO to the left. Then the lower rotor disc was L/R-even when the heli was flt-trimmed.

[this is NOT a brilliant new concept > I knew a Bell Jet Ranger pilot who used to fly from Reno back to Seattle with the heli trimmed at flight speed .... making corrective adjustments merely by shifting in his seat!!]
