I dont know if its another problem or im doing in a bad way...

When heli is starting lift, looking from back, it go on left side. So i trimmed the aileron on the opposite side, i trimmed to maximum, but it go always on sx direction...

Is it so unlucky model mine?

Tnks

Are you talking about taking off from the floor? If so, they all lean to the left taking off. I give mine some right aileron when first lifting off and have no problems.

My flying is getting faster and faster. Didn't used to break anything. Now I'm killing flybars. Ordered 4 and later 21 more.

Score card:
Two undamaged
Two need flybars
One has repairable flybar that I broke again ten minutes ago.

You say you ordered flybars - you didn't order enough of them. There is going to be a rush on flybars with warm weather coming and flying skills get better, faster, and riskier.

The cold temperatures must be the reason why you're breaking them, making the plastic brittle. I can't imagine ever breaking a flybar.

+1 ... the flybar on my V911 literally bent into a U-shape after a crash that caused it to go in between the canopy and frame post for the canopy, and get caught behind the post. Just straightened it out by hand and still flying with that flybar.

You only need to trim to make it hover in one place. When taking off from the floor, you need to add a little right stick to compensate. Most helis tend to drift when close to the floor, the turbulence from the air from the rotors bouncing back from the ground messes things up. Try to get at least one meter above the ground, then check if the heli stays in the same place, or still needs some adjustment through trim.

When I take off I punch the throttle to make the heli "jump" up quickly ... that prevents any side drifting during takeoff.

I am not that aggressive, perhaps I don't have the warrior gene...

I had bounced my V911 off a hard tennis court a number times flying in strong wind. Nothing is broken so far.

The canopy exploded and the front part of the landing skids totally disappeared when my FBL 4#6 dived a few feet into the same tennis court first time.

I cannot complain about the V911.

Thanks for the advice on flybars. I have to watch my spending though.

I can afford quite a lot of flybars but my wife is watching my credit card statements.

Anyway I intend to remove/replace the flybar weight and cut and rejoin to shorten the flybar when the spares arrive.

We'll see if anything works out. If nothing works, there is little point of stocking up.

Have fun.

You have to get the V911 off the ground swiftly. If you sit and spin it will fall over on left side.

Try taking off from the edge of a cardboard box. Give it a little forward stick, then throttle. Flies off no problems.

Yes, and it will fly however you want it to fly. After waiting so long, it has to be far better than you ever expected.

Time to order another now that this one is getting old.

That's exactly the same problem as I and a friend had with our pants servos.
I hosted a " servo fix " thread on here somewhere about a Month ago.
Just remove the servo and follow the instructions, or if you can't be bothered, just buy a new PCB.
It's an easy job either way.
