Default Problem trimming out Blade 120 S

I just bought a new 120 S BNF. So I bind it to my Tx (it's one of the Blade Txs that come with the RTF). I take off and I notice the heli wants to go backwards and to the left. I keep trimming it until I have the trim all the way forward and to the right, but the heli still wants to go backwards and to the left. Are there adjustments that can be made on the flight controls of the heli to correct this? Thanks.

Grampi50, I would start with a drift calibration flight. Then put your trims back to centered, and then make any corrections turning the servo pushed connecting at the dashboards needed.

Unfortunately, I don't have the RTF, so I don't have the Tx with the fail safe button, which is required to do the drift cal. Unless these's some way to do it with my DX8 Tx, it can't be done, and I think that's the problem. After adjusting both flight control linkages as far as they would go in both directions and seeing no change in flight, the only possible thing it could be is the brain of the flight electronics is making it fly the way it does. Without being able to do a drift cal, this thing is nothing more than a visual prop...

If you haven't already, you will probably get more responses if you post your question at HeliFreak:

https://www.helifreak.com/forumdisplay.php?f=62

I have learned tons there, and gotten through many issues with my Blade 230S from that forum. (Not problems with the great heli, but programming issues, etc.)

And as mentioned above, you need to fix the problem in the programming, and not with the trim levers on your TX, which are not used on heli's like they are used on airplanes.
