Default axe cp radio adjustments

Hello,
first time heli pilot, first time post to RCU.

bought the axe cp this last weekend and am trying to figure it out.

How can i find out how each of the trim adjustments affect the heli?

by trim i mean the horizontal/ vertical adjustment levers next to and below the joysticks on the controller.

the manual did not come with any type help on this. A picture with function listed would help.

also, is the controller that came with the kit made by some other company that i could search for and find info on?

Thanks.

Its harder to explain than to just move and see what happens, but here's the best I can come up with. (see picture)

Following/adding to PilotLight, the trim levers move the range of the joysticks a much smaller amount than the same movement of the main sticks, and they don't return to center. They're there to trim the centers of the controls, as in to make the heli not change attitude/direction when you don't move the sticks. For example, if you find the heli always wants to fall off to the right from a hover without you moving the stick, you'd move the bottom (left/right) trim on the right stick to the left. If it always wanted to move forward (as PL mentioned), you could move the fore/aft trim on the right stick back towards you. Basically, just very fine adjustments to the flight controls.
