Default 100 CP Rudder input cuases heli to Drift

I have a couple week old 100CP. I am using a Futab 9C to control it.

It hovers great, but I notice when I give rudder input, the heli drifts pretty agressivly off axis. depending on the direction of the rudder input, the drift is either forward or backwards. And its not just a slow drift, it almost puts it in forward or backward flight.

This drift is making it difficult to do anything but hover.

I have tried multiple gyro gain settings (20, 30, 40, 50% etc....) but it did not help.

I called Helimax, and they could not pin point the problem but are going to try replacing the board.

Has anyone else out there had this issue? If so, was it the board or was there another fix?

Any input would be greatly appreciated.
