Default Unwanted drift on exi 450 pro with belt

Im learning to hover and the problem I am having is; on a level hover heli starts drifting away which is normal (wind or floating effect from the blades) however when I control it with cyclic I notice giving right cyclic drifts the heli backwards with a minimal yaw to the right. so lets say I am trying to move the heli from one point to another 15 feet away to its right side I have to fight the thing to get it there its always going back and forth with minimal travel to right side. Is this normal? my Swash mix are set 50% on pitch, aileron and elevator. Exponential on aileron and elevator at 50%. at mid stick I have zero pitch and 60% throttle. Maximum pitch is set to -+9 degrees. even on while its hovering perfectly giving it right cyclic moves it back and right. Left cyclic is normal. any ideas?

it could depend on how low you are hovering because of the down wind is making the heli go that way alll the time but if u can try to get higher and hover and see if it stops that my thought your to low to the ground and its the down wind doing it

you may be right. I'm always hovering barely 6 or 7 inches off the ground. I will try to hover higher tonight to see if it makes a difference.
