What's up with forward Flight on my Hirobo Mini Lama??


Someone help! My little Lama 'porpoises' its way thru forward flight - it wants to put itself into a hover after attempting to fly forward more than about 5 feet unless I fly it VERY slowly in forward flight. Is it a built in gyro thing that's making it do this??

You have to double check EVERYTHING! blade balance, blade tracking, make sure the battery is firmly forward. Any one or combination will adversely affect performance. Only after making sure ALL there were proper, was my Hirobo performing correctly. If you perform forward forward flight, and make right turning, it will slow down! This is caused by the blade slow down, and can't be helped. Forward and LEFT is OK!

I get good FF, by using the short side of the balance weight bar. Much better than the long.
