Have a new fusion 270 that does not want to behave. Out the box it was not responding well (I am new to RC helicopters), so stopped rotor checked all controls response and they are correct. Checked swash but cannot gauge with eye. Purchased swash leveling tool (one with three legs on the drive shaft) and set all links to have a so called level swash. Tested blade angels and am confused. Level swash, but on rotation of blades the blade angel changes. At 12 o clock i set front blade to zero, then turn head to 3 o clock, the setting changes to 3.4 degrees, then turn to 6 o clock and the setting goes back to almost zero sometimes positive 0.3 or negative 0 .1, then turn to 9 o clock and angle changes to 2.4? Back to 12 o clock and the setting is almost zero again. What gives. Have tried to level the helicopter as best i can have tried to make shaft perfectly vertical, but this does not make sense. Have tried to recheck and recheck but each time get funny results. Have corrected follower arm and made them level as well. Anyone got some ideas. Still have not flown but at this rate looks like i will end up flying it and then rebuilding because this thing is not going to respond well in the air. Will probably get someone experienced to fly it first. Any help welcomed.
