Let me guess... you're using e-stabi?

That and a flybar...and there is actually a string above it holding it up

There is an added stabilizer type thing on it...KBDD .30-60 size paddles on it (2x T500 paddle weight). And to make it even more sluggish...1.5gr on each side of wheel collar . It's reeeeaaaaallll stable now

That was a really great flying video SidewaysLS4!!!
You really make me want to get a 500 size AS-350.

I love that ERA paint scheme too, but what I really want is the SmartModel Ecureuil Denmark Military.

C'mon Kin.... When is this going to be available!!!!

Hey, thanks! Yeah, I really could go for that Denmark heli...the standard AS350 is a bit bland. That and someone other than Lightningheli making a 3 blade 500 head (which incidently is out of stock everywhere for that matter should one wish to roll the dice on LH)

I'll tell ya...that AS350 sure is edging closer and closer into morphing into a UH1, lol.

I too have added "nut weight" on the flybar on the 500 and Swift 16 .... if remember right it was about 3 grams each side on the 500 and 4 grams on the swift making it really easy and smooth.

Thanks Joe. Repositioning the 401 gyro to the rear of the mechanics did the trick. I guess there is a lot of interference from the big e-motor and ESC where there gyro was before.
