Well it seems that the problem is allmost gone now....

I turned the links that connect to the blade grips 3 turns out on each side and it has improved 200%. Now i think it just needs a fine tuning but wow what a difference just by turning the links a few turns each.

Thank you Astrofler for the advice and yes it did workout fine...It is allmost perfect now.

You mean you don't have a pitch gauge? That is one of most important tool you must have if you fly helis. Your heli must shake like crazy, and making your gyro and servo work extra hard, no wonder it can't keep up.

Yes, a pitch gauge is a great tool and everyone should have one.

but I think you're a bit mixed up about the heli shaking. Pitch no matter how far out won't make the heli shake, only bad balance on components will do that.

too much pitch can make the gyro and tail servo work pretty hard. Too little pitch and you won't be going anywhere.

Glad it's working for you madvillian. Enjoy your heli! They're addictive!

No offense to Madvillan, but if he wasn't aware that a pitch gauge was a must have, I just assumed that nobody showed him how to set up his heli for smooth operation either.

The tail should be able to hold regardless of main blade pitch, especially on a stock motor.

Head-speed in the key. Reducing the pitch merely kept your head-speed from bogging down as much. This kept the TR RPM up and it was able to fight the torque.

TR RPM is a good thing (with reason). Without sufficient headspeed (and TR RPM) you'll never keep the tail from kicking.

On the bright side, we now know you have the new lower RPM TR reduction gearing so you won't blow your tail up if you get a bigger motor.
