Default HoneyBee CP3 setup

I ve started to rebuild my HB CP3 after a serious crash.
the tranny is set in mode2.
if I move the throttle the swash-plate is not moving as whole unit up of down. its kind'a moving deferentially.
is this a normal thing for CP3?

cheers
Viper

As I understand it (and I'm fairly new here too) increasing left stick (mode 2) increases motor speed, or (in idle up) increases rotor pitch, both giving extra lift, so the swashplate should rise parallel to the ground / axis of the heli. The right stick would alter the rotor, tipping it down at front / up at back for forward flight, etc., Maybe the 4in1 (or does yours have a 3in1 + gyro?) is damaged. I put a 10A fuse in the feed from battery to 4in1 on mine, and that has blown several times in crashes, so i guess it has protected both 4in1 and the two motors (!) - I did blow a 4in1 before I installed that.
