Question
Leveling The Corona Stock Head.

Leveling The Corona Stock Head. All,

Taking into consideration that there is no wind while lifting straight up into a hover; what is the best method to leveling the head in an attempt to achieve the least amount of drift as possible. If this is practical, would you get better results by off setting the pitch of the head to compensate drift instead of trying to set it level?

It seems that I need to apply a little too much cyclic stick movement in order to maintain a stationary position.... My cyclic stick movement is constant even with no wind.

All experience appreciated,

Mike

if you have setup according to the manual, and balanced everything well to get rid of vibration, you are set. as a beginner, you will be overcontrolling a bit. that is inevitable. certain amount of input is inevitable no matter what. the key is to do it such that you don't overcontrol. consider using the dual rate with right hand set to 60-75% to reduce sensitivity.

Corona head

I am putting my first one together and find that ball links on the swash plate are tighter than I care for. Just connecting two and moving the third by hand yields more friction that I had hoped for. Is this normal and will it losen up a bit without being an issue? If not, what is the best way to provide some room?

Thanks in advance.

there are ball resizers, but I find that it will wear in quickly. as long as nothing binds, you are ok.
