Flying straight


Hello all.


Although my 120s flies well, I've noticed that I have to make minor course corrections to keep it flying straight (aileron and rudder). I assume this is normal behavior?


Thanks.

For a micro size heli yes, they get moved around by even the slightest breath of wind. Large helis not so much.

I like my 120S's a few grams heavier than stock. A FG canopy seems to do the trick along with a 600-650mAh battery. You still have to correct for the wind but it helps. Being FP they aren't doing any acrobatics anyway.

FP's are more sensitive to wind compared to CP's.

I've tried them in all sizes. Up to 450 anyway.
