The cause, Nick finds, is in the collective range on the rotor head — which he’s able to remedy with a few simple linkage adjustments. Along the way, Nick also spots a loose wire and warns that its vibration might impair gyro response. Watch for more easy, valuable tips from the Thunder Tiger Heli Team coming soon!
