I must have missed something on the setup, and would sure like to know what it was.
Using Easy Mode, as collective is raised the helicopter rocks backward and the tail strikes the ground. It’s as if I have a 500 lb gorilla riding on the tail. In an attempt to pre-empt this behavior, I start with the cyclic full forward and raise the collective. The helicopter still rocks backward, not forward, what am I missing?
Okay, found the problem, please disregard. I copied a Throttle (Collective) Profile that used a wheel on the side of the throttle for pitch trim, which was rolled all the way nose up. Neutralizing the control has solved the issue. I will be removing that assignment. Since the helicopter has no pitch control, would it be better for it to ignore any pitch trim settings??
I want to thank myself for the prompt response.
