Thanks
I figured how to exist the program mode last night. I centered the tail servo by directly connecting it to channel four on the receiver and then in HH, I tried to remove the drift by sliding the servo back and forth one the tail boom, when I got close I used the trim buttons on the transmitter, maybe I need to play with it some more.
The up and down bobbing, I'm wondering could this be because I'm using the stock plastic blades? I'm thinking maybe carbon fiber blades might cure the problem, what do you think?
Thanks

Has anyone had problems with screws coming loose in plastic parts?

Maybe it's just because my base plate is worn, but I've been losing the boom support screws. I used CA for one side, but I am thinking of using loctite as I want to be able to get the screw out again.

I've read loctite damages plastic, but does it form a breakable bond as with metal?

yes it does , it will melt it after time . use GE rubber silicone adhesive , it will come off when you want it to and absorb vibration .

I had an interesting flight today. I stopped by the airfield as I was in the area. Was pretty windy and I lifted up pretty high to give myself some room for errors. Needless to say I went up so high that I kept losing orientation until I just couldn't tell. I managed to save the heli quite a few times which I was surprised, but the wind kept blowing it so far away I had to bring it down. It ended up behind some bushes very far away. Nothing broken, but then I broke the feathering shaft on a later hover, wind again. Well I learn my lesson, keep it high enough, but close enough that you can see what it's doing. I didn't want to bring it down since I have crashed one too many times and by the time I did, it was far, far away.

How did that up to almost 1k? I thought the playstation 3 also has a built in blu ray player? Well I don't have either so I'm just wondering from the prices I see. Even at 50 or 60 bucks a game that wouldn't go near that. Did you forget your coffee when you bought this pitchp? Well maybe with the extra blu ray player. I still have my first generation xbox and only love playing mech assault on it, but I haven't even turned that on for ever.

I definately recommend the CF blades, but I doubt that will fix your bobbing issues, but it may improve your overall flight.

Try this one, let me know how you guys like it. I have use the free version for some time and burned cd's without any problems. Don't bother burning anything anymore specially movies, they just take too much time and space. Now I just stream youtube to get my tv fix, but I hardly watch tv anyway. There are many others, this one just worked and it looked nice too.
