Hello PaulB,

It's great to hear you have built a Monotwirl too. The ballraced rotor is a very good idea to help increase rotor speed, my method is shown several posts above (using parts from a brushless motor).

Also as shown in my post my rotor's default position for straight flying is ~10 degrees tipped to the right, otherwise my monotwirl will turn over fairly quickly - maybe this is what happened to yours ?

Also when launching I don't launch level, probably at about 20 degrees up from horizontal.

Hopefully you will get yours working OK as it is great to watch flying and people are always amazed that it works !

Dominic
