New Hawk Talon Mini V2 heli

Meritline's got this Daily Deals specials. About every couple weeks, they put their 3ch micro coaxial helicopters on sale for about $22 shipped. These little ones are fun and easy to fly indoors. Great for cold, rainy, or windy days when I can't fly outdoors.

I already have a Talon Mini (v1) heli and it's a cute little heli. I have a video of it in my blog previously. Today, I made a video impression of the V2 heli. It's a little bit bigger than the V1. It has a trim problem in that it won't stop rotating to the left, even though I'm fully trimmed to the right. So a quick search on RCG said I should flatten the top rotor blade. That works great, but only for a few minutes at a time since the blades will revert back to their preformed shape. I don't know how to make them keep the flat shape... Here's my impression of it.

V2 looks good.

The left spin is a common issue. My V1 has it as well. It may be because the mechanism for the lower rotor somehow has more friction than the upper one. You can observe this when you turn the throttle to zero. The lower rotor always stop first before the upper one does. I can trim mine at the beginning, and have to keep trimming towards that direction to the limit when the battery goes down. The situation can become better when you turn off the heli and turn it back on.

I wonder if a quick shot of lube will fix it...
