Main Rotor Centering in G4.5

Hi everyone...

Quick question on a problem with my G4.5 system...When flying helicopters, it seems the centering on the main rotor is not functional for some reason. For example, if I move the cyclic control forward to start the heli moving forward, and then release the control to center...the rotor head continues to fly forward until I move it backward and then center it once the heli stops moving.

Has anyone else noticed this condition, and if so, have you found a way to correct this?

Thanks,

Everything you stated is the correct behavior for a 10 year old heli.
