All good points to look at, just a little tweaking is needed.

Cheers, Ray K.

If it seem balanced on the rotor shaft, maybe the head angle is slightly off. Might also be that the fairly large dia. tail rotor is is exerting some down force.  Just a thought...

Thanks guys,

The Bell has a lot of weight in the nose and she still fly's backwards, still need a little more in the nose, I will try another flight soon.

I need to just make a few minor changes to this model and she should be a good flyer, I am real close.  Smiley

Cheers, Ray K.

Your test flight area looks a bit too crowded. I cringed at the thought of a crash that might destroy that beautiful work. But it seems that helicopters are quite a 'hands on' machine. Good work!  Smiley
