Default Trex 450 handling Characteristics

Hey, I have a question about the handling characteristics of my heli. I am flying a Hausler 450 which is a trex 450 clone. I have Hitec HS65m servos for cyclic. A spektrum rx and tx. It has a hk450 head assembly. The problem is it is not responsive at all. I have another hk450 that I fly and it is just like the simulator I am using and the radio settings are identical in both my helis but when I fly the hausler 450 the stick movements are so far in relation to actual movement of the heli. The servo arms are all lines up perfect with the head also. I don't know where to look for help. I watched all the finless bob vids during setup and assembly. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
Jeff

Check your swash mix and also your dual rates.

See, I wass wondering about that. My swah mix is set at -60 on pitch and ail because i used that to reverse them on set up. I am still not 100% on what the swash mix is for. Also my dual rate is set at 30 with a dx6i. Should I move it to the negative?

Regardless of your radio settings, what's really important is the cyclic throw you're getting at the blades. I'd suggest before you change anything to break out the pitch gauge and compare the two helis for both collective and cyclic pitches. If it turns out they are the same or nearly so, you likely have a problem with your head.

Check your head speed too. The gearing might be different between the two.

Do you know how to check the cyclic pitch ? should be around 7deg
