Default T-Rex 250 Plus DFC RTF Helicopter drifts left or right

Hi,

I'm
new to rc helipcopters and own a few rc cars/trucks. I bought a t-rex 250 plus
and it arrived a week ago from amainhobbies. I noticed that the seal was broken
on the box so I assumed it was returned by another customer. When I took the
trex 250 to the park and tried to hover the heli would go to the left whenever I
try to hover all the time. I'm thinking that the settings may have been changed
on the transmitter considering the seal on the box was broken. It came with the
stock transmitter ALIGN T6 Futaba S-FHSS 2.4GHz Transmitter. Can anyone provide
info on the proper trim settings to avoid having the heli go left or right when
I start to hover? Which trims on the transmitter should I adjust? Is is best to
adjust the trims while hovering? I look forward to learning a lot from other pilots. Thanks in advance!

Hi, the link you supplied didn't work but I think I found your helicopter here.

You have to remember that helicopters are inherently unstable and will always drift in one direction or another.

If yours drifts quickly in the same direction everytime then it might need some trim, if your helicopter drifts left then use right trim on the aileron channel. which is the right stick (left and right movment) Even if you trim perfectly, these helicopters will never hover in one position with your hands off the transmitter.
