Check to make sure your canopy doesn't interfere with the outer swashplate links.

Before

It's best to do this before you fly with the canopy. If the link catches, you'll find yourself in a situation where the model is rolling slowly in one direction or the other. Don't panic. Use the rudder to make a circle in the same direction of the roll. Each circle you do will bring the machine lower. Once you are a couple feet off the ground, hit throttle hold and feed in collective. As you add collective the link will operate normally.

Get out your Dremel. Do a nice job and finish it off with 400 grit sandpaper wrapped around something round. Give it about an 1/8 inch clearance.
