Default duratrax dx450 keeps falling to the right!

hi all i just picked up a used DX450 dirtbike, and it looked in mint condition.. However when I try using it, it likes to immediately tip to the right.. itll stay upright if I don't touch the steering and will sometimes stay upright if i turn left.. but if i turn right it tips right over!

anyone know what could be causing this ? duratrax support said it could be a bad gyro,, if so i can just replace that myself for like $30 on ebay.. but before i put in a new gyro i want to be sure that is the issue

Thanks!

Check your steering servo and make sure it is centered. Also try changing the steering settings on your radio.
Let us know if this helped.
Take some video if you can.
