Hi,

I saw this video and tried it a year ago when I first got my heli and frankly it did not help. All I was doing was putting unnecessary stress and strain on the mainframe as well as crumpling up and putting cracks into my fuselage!

The yaw problem goes away if I fly for a few seconds, land, pull the battery, and then put the battery back into the heli. This fix is completely repeatable and does not involve wringing my poor tandem out like a wet washcloth!

I looked at my mainshafts and they don't line up exactly either but after resetting the battery after literally just a few seconds (not a minute as some other folks have said) then it holds the yaw without needing any trim. No mechanical deformation required!
