Default $200 Heli Question

My son (NAVY NFO) left a little elictric Heli with me that my younger son and I have been trying to fly ( with marginal success We are fixed wingers). Ive noticed the main rotor blades are swinging out of alignment. What adjustments corrects this?

I think your question would get better exposure and answers if you post it in the helicopter forums. You will also need to be more specific about the equipment that you have.

The blade grip bolt on the inbord end of the blades. Tighten it up until you have to use some pressure to swing the blades in the grips. It they are too loose, they will lead & lag too much and cause stability problems too tight and they wont lead and lag enough and if they are rigid and out of alignment things can get nasty really fast.

Make 'em loose, but no so loose they will flop down if you hold the machine on it's side (with out the rotors spinning)
