Default axe ez

Has anybody had to adjust their gyro boarg right out of the box? I have to keep feeding my axe right tail rotor to get it to even try to hover without spinning round and round. The tail rotor adjustment on the board should take care of this right? TIA.

Hi Kart,
I'll take a shot at this. Please consider I'm new to r/c helicoters. When I took my EZ ot of the box it would not fly. I found the blades were reversed. After fixing that I had to play with the board to "hands off" hover. I did find that hovering close to the ground does some weird things to flight characteristics. Try going up to 3 to 4 feet before making adjustments or you will find yourself chasing the wrong settings.

adjusting the mixer out of the box is pretty common, especially on cp helis, because the mix is going to change with altitude and air density. The coax heli's should be a bit better though. If it is something that you can just fix with the trim then I would say it's not that far off, but you can tweak with it if you want and get the trim closer to the center

Hi, from my experience the trim labelled gyro gain is wrong, it should be "tail speed rotation".
On my EZ if you turn clockwise tail spin faster, if you turn cc tail spin slower.
I noticed no effect on the real "gyro gain effect".
Hope this help.
