Dave,

If the heli yaws clockwise when viewed from the top....turn the prop pot c.w.  You want to chase the yaw.  Turn the pot in the direction of the yaw.  Unplug battery when doing this to reinitialize the 4in1.  Tiny, tiny increments though, literally.  Like the width of a jeweler's screwdriver.  Keep in mind you will have yaw drift throughout your flights.  This is normal.  You will be on the sticks all the time.  There is no perfect hover.  This is not an airplane we are flying  :wink:

hey how do i adjust the rudder trim?

 

when at hover the trim doesn't have enough to stop the yaw. this would be the proportional right?

increase porportional and the adjustments the gyro makes are more sensitive, in turn giving the trim more effect right?

wrong?

something else?

 

Learn from my mistakes and be very careful wheb adjusting the pots because it there plastic like eflites, then they will be fragile. Make sure you have the proper flat driver size and do not push hard and the adjustment pots and pay attention when you turn them, have lots of light ect. They are fragile......trust me lol !!

Thanks,

That really looks a lot better than when I had the parts only to work with.  Looks really sweet put together on the heli. 

Durk, I'm glad you got the account issue resolved.

Now, about the blades and grips.  Don't be afraid to file them.  I noticed they were a little thicker than stock myself.  Personal opinion:  I trust in stock Esky grips.  They fit well and as I always say, they are the fuses for the main shaft assembly.  They take a beating but have a bad enough crash...they will give way and save your shafts/ gears.

If you still have stock plastic rotor heads on, the pins will break before the bladeholders will. Well, just in my case, I guess. I have broke two pins on two rotorheads, but not a bladeholder yet. hmmm. Must be lucky. Lee

Goes to show that we all have different experiences.  I have never broken a pin.  Always the grip.  We each have our own "issues" with our respective helis lol.  It makes the world go round.

True that. I would have suggested (at one time,) that everyone buy alot of lower innershaft gears. Cause I believed they wore out quick. Then I learn to mesh the gear better. hehe. These copters have alot to teach us all. One thing, that I have learned recentelly, is humility. hahahaha. Lee

Tings must be going pretty smooth in RC Groups at the moment, no one is posting here. Jim, too bad you could not use the djkhobby name on RC Groups, I think one of the dealers is jealous of your fancy colour combinations!:D

Don't tell me you did that to someone on RCG.
