How did you get this snapshot of my landing? There's another $50 million down the drain. ...Scratch that: It appears that they can use some parts to cut it down to around $41 million.

Recently out of the goodness of my heart I tried to get some of the guys on the T-28 thread to consider applying some simple statics principles to nail down the cg more precisely. They would have none of it!

For some reason they are content to flip their craft on its back, plop its wings down on a couple of sharp objects and wait to see which way it tilts!

I posted a more sensible method on my blog - you might want check it out.
That was GREAT!, you may want to have it published.
I am with you about the birds. As far as the fury friends, well, they make a great stew. One thing I can tell you about us country boys, we will never go hungry!

The only thing I can see is a thin copper wire from the upper left of the board is not attached to anything. That is if you are looking from the rear of the heli. I plugged in the battery and moved the stick and absolutely nothing. Any ideas? I am using a DX 7 Tx by the way. I used it for a MQX prior to trying to fly the SR 120 so it was functioning fine prior to this.
The rudder doesn't use a servo... rudder comes from controlling the speed of the tail rotor... directly from the output of the ESC

The wire you saw is the antenna, it's not supposed to be attached to anything (well, it needs to be attached to the board )

OK. I should have known that. Possible that the tail motor is out? I guess I should be looking back there then. Looking in the wrong place.

Are you using Avast? I noticed some that posted about it are, might be a false positive.

Yes.

It's flagging offsite content this site loads in the background from an advertiser or tracking tools as malicious. Sometimes those are false positives, sometimes they're legit. There's obviously a reason cloudfront is on a shite list... sometimes a site doesn't even know they are forwarding malicious content. Personally, I'm not too concerned out this one but best to be aware... thought I'd pass on what some are experiencing.

It's still doing it by the way.

If the tail rotor was out you'd know it pretty quick... you'd be spinning (yawing) rather hard in place.

An advert was my next guess, not too uncommon to have adverts doling out malware. Would also explain why I'm not having an issue, I block allot of advertising and tracking domains via OpenDNS and DNTP.
