Default severe wobble

I have a caliber 30.. only flow 2 times.. It has a severe wobble to it only when the pitch is changed in the main blades when trying to take off..


I replaced the clutch liner .. does this have anything to do with it??

have ds811 digital servo's and a 401/9253.. thought you might want to know the hardware in it if it helps..

Maybe main blades are out of balance.. is they are I would think it would do it all the time..

any help would be appreciated..

thank you..

if the blades aren't out of balance, then head speed may be a factor. The Caliber can suffer from a quite a severe wobble if the head speed is too low. I keep mine quite high, especially in hover and it's sewing machine smooth.

Default severe wobble

I noticed my cal 30 wobble a bit in the hover. my head speed was about average, but not on the high side. anyway, it turned out to be that one of the paddles on the flybar was angled a bit different to the other. after adjusting it, i have been running very smooth. I forgot to check this as it comes assembled already.

a handy tip before adding tape to the blades before balancing...
