Help!
Blade mSR X Ye/Yah/Rudder not working maybe...?

I just got a Blade mSR X and it hovers great, it is my first flybarless heli, I have flown cx2's for a long time and the mSR and nine eagles solo pro and I have been more recently flying the 120 SR pretty well. When I just try to hover it works well, once I go it is hard as I am not fully used to flybarless yet, so it all could just be me...

When I get it going and then use my ye/yah yo turn I will sometimes not go when I tell it to, and may even go a little bit the other way. Also I noticed peroetting is very slow on this heli, and it tends to go forward and backwards and here and there while peroetting. I don't know if my heli is defective or if it's just me, maybe I need to balance it out a whole lot better, I just don't know so if you could help that would be great.

Today I flew it and close to the end when ever I hit the throttle It would spin uncontrollably, IDK if that was just my batteries dieing, or what but I did try re connecting the battery


BTW, the throttle, ailerons, and elevator work great it's just the rudder/ye/yah that don't.

Ahhh...the old rudder ye yah problem.

You have to adjust the fulcrum so it is an exact balance of both doova-lacky and thing-a-me-bob. Any disproportionate balance between the two and the heli will yee-haw or if you live in Aus it may Oi-Oi.

Seriously you're going to have to clarify those terms.

I think you mean yaw left and yaw right friend, could be a southern United States thing... Check out the 3400 post on the entertaining thread named "mSRX something or other" and there you will not only find some good Sheldon type (Big Bang Theory) entertainment, but also the answer you seek you shall find.

On this heli the swash tends to reset to a self appointed neutral position as soon as riudder is touched, and this causes the heli to fly off in sometimes random directions. It's uncertain if this is by design (although no one can explain the benefit) or a bug/flaw. With expo (if your tx has this feature) you can work around it, also deliberately offsetting rudder trim, and adjusting links so the heli hovers more or less stationary on it's self appointed "neutral" setting. Still, it would have probably made life on new mSR x pilots a lot easier if rudder wouldn't affect swash postion at all.

Sorry if I steered your thread off course.
Up the top in the stickies there is a whole thread on heli terms. Without using terms that are commonly understood help will be hard to get.

The post I made was meant to be in good humour rather than ridicule. Hope you didn't take it that way.

After I made that post you clarified but that still did not make much sense. Hard to diagnose an issue if the issue can't be understood.

Glad you got it sorted.

Yeah, I got the humor it was a little funny but a little hard too as I didn't get much help after that. I really thought that ye and yah meant left and right rudder.
