On mine first I'm doing weight balance on the blades using a tape to fix the lighter one then I'm adjusting the rods length with half turns then fly off hover at 1.5 m over the ground and land to readjust until the tracking become visually one line. I'm using wood and carbon blades. The foamies are too flexible and more difficult to track.

Just play with the rod's length, choose one of the blades #1 or #2 and adjust the length to become shorter with a half turn, then fly off and do a hover to check how it's going if the tracking seems to be worse than before then go back with half turn and start with adding half turns in the opposite direction for extending the length of the rod and repeat this until your'e happy.

Any advise appreciated
I thought the Innovator was out of production so it is good to learn that production has not stopped
Does anyone have any more information on availability of Innovator parts ?
Any information gratefully received .
Thanks for taking the time to read this posting

Hi Tony...

The supply of parts in the UK are starting to get better again according to the people I spoke with at Ripmax. They gave me a long story about the company that made the inno for TT, basically they went bust and there was a whole battle due to patents copyrights etc etc which had a severe knockon effect and no legal way anyone could make the parts! At roughly the same time here in the UK the main distributor Amerang also went bust!

Ripmax who took over Amerang when they went bust have told me that parts can now be made again but there are a lot of back orders to fill but things should start getting better.....

If you check for stock on UK web sites you can generally get most parts still and even batteries, so things have improved as batteries used to be impossible to find....Anywhere!
