What you should do is give just enough thrust to get the mini to skid along the ground, then drain a battery or two just getting used to the feeling of the cyclic stick.
Then when you feel confident give it that extra stick movement to get it into a hover.
Now, i just noticed something on my mini, the mainshaft can be moved up/and down by about 1-1.5mm, I'm presuming this is whats causing me to have issues keeping it on a fixed level when wind pushes it.
Now, is this intended with a feathering shaft? or can i put a small washer above the maingear? Because this causes quite abit of movment of the blade pitch.
PS. How do you remove the main gear? i cant see any screw like on the v911.
Just take your index finger and thumb...place index on the collar and thumb below the main gear (landing gear removed) then squeeze...that's all it takes.
