Default Raptor g2 wants to roll left?

yadac123 had helped me with it trying to nose dive when taking off thats all fixed but at 40 to 50 % throttle it wants to roll to the left. One of the blades has started to seperate do you guys think that is the problem or is it settings. It will lift off but I have to fight it to keep it straight up and to hover.
Edit: I have spare blades but just need to know if I should toss these old ones or if I can reglue them without ruining the balance of the blades.

Man Id get that blade off the heli . If it comes apart it will toss blade pieces like daggers. And also will cause a downed heli. Dammages props and blades have no good results. From balancing problems to crashes to personal injury.

I think most copters roll left on take off, I know mine does. Good luck with the blade.

I am a newbe and trying to master the simulator and it is tough. I think if anyone
can master that thing they would have no problem with the real thing.

Yes and you should replace them blades because it's dangerous. Heli will roll left and will roll towards a side no matter what. This is where the fun it right? learn to counter the effect with mind and hand working together. You might want to balance your swash plate and it should be level on a plane.

I replaced the blades and it still rolls just like andy said. I have yet to fly it outside due to 4 foot snow banks and all the melting snow this heli is way to powerfull to try indoors.I'll run my nitro truck outside but not my heli.

Edit I think when I have tested it inside the heli makes so much wind that it is way harder to control cause of the wind bouncing back towards the heli or am I just guessing? Andy any remarks?
