Or, you could have an extensive "junk yard" like me! My hangar looks like a Blade graveyard. And, a Phoenix nest where new Helis are raised up from ashes!!

Bummer on the crash Jake, ah well... you didn't have anything to do anyway, did you? It will keep you busy!

The Nano is supposed to be much easier than previous CP's. If I understand right, it doesn't even need trimming.

I have rolled around the thought of one also.

Easier - - maybe if you have excellent eyesight! I saw this thing in the LHS and its like a flying a mosquito.

I just can't manage to get mine fixed up; Main rotors will go fine without the flybar attached, but completely seized when attached.

Need to replace the swash plate anyway as half the balls are on their last legs.

What difference does it make if you attach the servo link to a different hole on the servo?

High light:....don't go there.

You must have the links in the wrong position/or balls. Can you post a pic(s) from different angles?

Mike.

EDIT: What makes you think the swash balls is "on it's last legs."???

Match the head with these pics:

Sounds like you have the anti rotation collar upside down....happens.

I started off heli flying with the Blade 400 and a copy of the T-Rex 450.
It was a distinct pleasure to relax so much flying the 120 after learning on the others. The 120 can be flown indoors in a small room but just try that with a 400 or 450 or even 500 3D heli and unless you're an expert you'll be in a mess of trouble.

I suppose the newer larger flybarless CP helis with 3 axis gyros are easier to fly but just the same, that 120 is an easy toy in comparison, safer, and less prone to major damage if it crashes.

JLT_GTI - if you're having a problem with it "going elsewhere" when you try to stop then don't try to fly a larger heli until you either gain skills with the 120 and can make it do anything you what it to do and also learn to set up the heli properly. As I said, the 120 is relatively safe but those larger ones are not. It's easy to go from a 450 to the 120 but not the other way around.
