Oh wait I just rotated the blades 180 degrees so they are 90 degrees from flybar but facing opposite way and they are at almost 0 pitch at 50%. BUT I just opened a can of worms here because at 50 percent throttle they shake like crazy.. Servos are dirty. Hoping after I clean them (only cleaned 1 servo in the helis whole life) then that will take care of my drigt probs as well..

Just one of the quirks with the AS3X, I can live with it, I'm used to it now, and correct automatically.

Makes you wonder about the GeeBee and Beast3D though doesnt it.....

Maybe its a good thing, it makes me practice back and side flips more

I mean 18 clicks trim to keep it from drifting isn't good at all... starting to remove servos now. I'm nervous and don't want to ruin any servos I can't afford new ones.

remove the servos carefully and remove the 4 screws from the rear, use 70 percent or denaturized alcohol and clean the strip, add a tad to the brushes, but if its set lower then the servos not really salvageable

STU. I'm cleaning my servos and the fingers are black too.... Should I leave them or clean them with alcohol too???? I heard the fingers are where you ruin servos so I hate to try and clean them and ruin my servos

Ah much better. I don't think its a problem where the servos are at, seems to be working fine. It still shakes but not as bad at mid stick I cleaned the last two servos better than the first and I think thats why its still shaking, but I bet I won't notice it in flight, stick has to be dead center on mid stick for it to start shaking. Probably need to replace a servo but its flyable for now. NOW I just need to figure out the drifting after 2 mins on the pack and I'll be set................................... OR deal with it... :-/ time to buy a walkera lol J/K

Great heli.
Put grommets on the swash and make sure the main gear is FIRMLY snugged on.
Use the bullet blades.
Hyperion 240 batteries are a great no-mod option.
You'll lose a lot of dog-bone links (unless you hot glue the gap in the rotor hub closed.)
Everyone wants to go brushless to reduce tail blowout but heli flies fine without this mod if you're smooth on the sticks (this basically means "I'm a better pilot than you").

This is my first CP heli as well. I think it's an idea first CP heli. I'm told it's a bit harder to fly than a full sized however you can crash it and chances are nothing will break. If something does break it's cheap and easy to replace parts.
Thanks for the info, i ordered an mcpx and if it's shipping from the California warehouse, then I should get it on Wednesday!
