MSR Fixed Pitch Question
Hey guys I don't know if I am having a problem with my new MSR or if this is normal for a FP heli. If I'm flying forward and let off the elev to center, the heli will shoot back at me and then keep teetering back and forth until it finally centers up and hovers. I do believe I have all the trims pretty close as it does a fine job at hovering.
This has been doing this out of the box before my first crash and everything seems to be straight and nothing is broken. Check with the swash plate tool and all.
I'm using a DX6i if that helps.

Yeah, it's called the Pendulum effect, you see the same thing in v911s. When you stop, give the cyclic a sharp tug in the opposite direction to cancel it out.

The MSR and 120SR have more of that than any other heli because their head design has the least damping. Head damping works like the shock absorbers on a car when you hit a big bump or stop fast. Get used to using a little counter movement on the sticks, because on CP helis you must constantly act/counteract.
