LoL, I get it to take off and hover without changing direction at all... Like you say, within an inch and got that right by the trim on the remote, but if I leave it like that and fly it, when the battery is nearly too flat to fly, the heli will start rotating.. I get about 10mins flight and it's the last minute or so that is like that, then I have to counter it all the time or adjust the trim...

Anyways, ehh, I'm struggling a bit but can nearly take off from the floor and land on a cupboard without it falling over, and nope, I don't have training gear lol... And I doubt I'm gonna need it, I'm probably through the worst already (for these models). Does anyone know how to make these more perky though? I feel it's not sensitive enough on the controls.. I've adjusted the main rotor a bit to lean more forward instead of backward and see how that goes but any other ideas?

Glad you like the helicopter. From what I'm reading, your left stick controls the throttle and the right left yaw? Which means it tilts the helicopter?

And the right stick controls the forward and and rotation?

If im understanding correctly, then this is not the way it is supposed to be (assuming mode 2). Its good your havuing a blast but its important to note that you shouldn't get too comfortable with this setting if your planning to move up eventually.

YES!!

Well, if that's the case, I will be manually changing it (open the remote and jippo the wires a bit...soldering irons are my best friends LoL)

HA! Opened the remote, got a tester, soldering iron and some pieces of thin wire, broke the tracks from the pots controling the side movements, wired the one to the other and so on, and now I have the remote in the right mode! Right lever controls all yaws and left controls rotation and throttle. But now....I have to learn all over again LoL

just FYI....

YAW is only pertaining to the movement about the vertical axis, i.e. the rudder control! the right stick (in mode 2) controls the movement about the pitch and roll axis, i.e. elevator and aileron.

have fun and enjoy the learning curve
