Question Something's not quite right (Blade MCX)

I have a Blade MCX that I haven't used in a long time. My DX6i was broken and I recently replaced it and decided to try out the MCX. I purchased new batteries from my LHS, charged them up and took the MCX for a spin.

My problem is that I am experiencing a slow(-ish) counter clockwise reverse drift. The MCX makes a very slow counter clockwise circle in the backwards direction.

I can eliminate most of it if I trim the transmitter as far as possible, but it still occurs, and I'm sure that using trim like that is not good practice.

Any advice on what to look for on the copter? I recall having some hard crashes in the past, but nothing appears overtly wrong.

Looking forward to some advice.

Thanks!
