Flight mode is normal and make sure it's on normal all the time. the dip switches are to be stay factory default.

Thanks

what are the default settings for the dip switches?.. i have the pcm wk0701.. and is it normal for heli to slide ALOT to the left, like fast.. with corrective stick inputs hover is very difficult when the slide needs alot of correction... sorry learner here..

Thanx

Yes. Well not tons but you can easily flip over to the left. It is a natural tendancy
for the helicopter to go left. It is something you learn to compensate for.
Make sure swashplate is level... your trim tabs are adjusted correctly

Maybe these links will help you. Applies to almost all electric heli's

And maybe RADD's school of flight

when I spin up and need to compensate for the heli rotating left by trying to give right rudder NO reposnse. I hear movement and see slight movement in the tail but no right rotation.. after every initialization I check that I get the correct responses. The tail and slider is centered without throttle.. only when I give it throttle and want or need to rotate right there's no response... I wish there's a troubleshoot guide somewhere to learn....

thanx

He means is the gear on the servo worn down to the point it doesn't grab and even if it is a bit it can still spin and not do anything every once in awhile. You can take the top off the servo to look.

usually when servos are stripped they make this loud click click sound and they sometime work and sometime doesn't.

heres a dumb question but i need to ask.. for spare batteries. I'm looking at one with JST plugs.. in the picture looks rectangular. my stock speed controller has circular plugs.. do I need this [link=http://www.hooobby.com/battery-jst-adapter.html]battery adapter[/link]
for it to connect without replacing my speed controller????

the plug on the raptor g2 esc is banana plug and JST is something else. If you don't want to change connectors you can get a spare battery 1300mah from xheli.com and that already has banana plug
