I've tried many combinations on my Boomtown flybar and I still get porpoising. To say the least, the heli sits a LOT!

Jack, is it possible you put the weights TOO far in and completely missed the sweet spot. Mine are 5 1/8" apart at the flat of the inside of the weight. I ask because I remember you needling me about my weights being too far apart. Try bringing them back out to 6" and start over and..s-l-o-w-l-y move them in.

BTW, sometimes I have to let off the ELE real quick then back on it for good FFF.

Mike.

I guess the sweet spot is being hard to come by. I've never had so many problems with a heli before.

Maybe it's not the heli but, the pilot I joke

Got my new bearings from Boomtown. Dang, the large ones don't fit They advertise as these fitting the CX's and V4. In fact I found them in the V4 upgrades. I think they got them mixed up some how. They are not even close. Inner hole on the new one is 2.65mm and my originals measures 3.80. Not even close even as far as hand grenades or horse shoes goes I emailed Jamie but, I'll also give him a call.

EDIT, I heard back from Jamie and he's sending me a new set of four. Evidently I must have been one of the first customers to order from this batch. He thanked me for bringing this to his attention as this would have caused some headaches down the line. I don't think he'd want the ones he sent me back....I had already treated them in Break Free CLP. It's what kept my original bearings going since X-Mass 2007 Soooo, ..I would have to charge him on a return
