Default My mini glider wont fly. why?

I bought a mini rc glider plane from Radien Tech, but when i try flying it it goes in a circle (goes to the left when i throw it) then it does that til it hits the floor. I put new batteries in the transmitter, there rechargeable AA batteries. The transmitter has a L & R trim, and that don't seem to do anything. What's wrong with it?

Welcome to the RCU forums, bxbugs!

It can be two things:

1) The two motors don't work at the same speed.

2) One of the wings is twisted.

Observe the plane from the front and check #2.

You can also launch it over a soft surface (like tall grass) with the motors off, in order to verify #1.
