Thanks again. I did remove canopy and battery is correct position. Servos are pretty much centered. Swashplate looks real slopy but everything is connected
and nothing broken. I know this is a cheap heli but want to get some service out of it. This bird could use to lose some weight.

I just thought it was some bad flying, but reset controls. I did get it airborne and flying but needs mucho foward trim. I never had a radio that was setup wrong is this common ?? I fly Quads/V929/L/B V1/V939/U816 pretty good and want to go bigger. I do not have any false expectations about this but would like to fly it some. It was bought as crash dummie anyway. I do not abuse my equipment and just wonder about excess foward trim needed to fly. I need bigger area but was getting feel of heli. I have a few FBL helis but holding off for a little while.
Could ground affect have something to do with foward motion ? My S/P 328 acted similar but not as bad until I got it a few feet up. 9116 is larger and did not have much room and battery was getting weak.
If you take off the heavy steel ornamental bars and the horizontal stabilizer it will move the balance point forward and help forward movement.

Saves 4 grams.

My flybar is missing because it was ejected on my last flight.
A new one is on the way.

Can't wait to fly it with the new parts. All new linkages, motors,
gears and bearings. New swashplate, too. The old one had .020" play.
The new one only has .010"

Hi Steve sorry to hear about stormforce he was a great inspiration to us all with the addiction so my question is what modding to the wasp canopy did you have to do to make it fit flush with the 9116 body with thanks in advance Rcmad 39 and my other heli is a F45 and loving it
