Default GEARS TURNING THE WRONG WAY!!!! PLEASE HELP

OK I HAVE A TREX XL CDE WITH AN AON 3500 MOTOR, WITH ALGIN 35A ESC. FROM WHAT I SEE THE BLADES SHOULD BE TURNING COUNTER CLOCKWISE, BUT IF I SET MINE UP TO TURN COUNTER CLOCKWISE ONLY THE MAIN GEAS TURNS, NOT ANY OF THE BLADES. SO I SWITCH THE WIRES ON THE MOTOR AND EVERYTHING WORKS THAT WAY ( TURNING CLOCKWISE NOW) BUT THEN ALL OF THE PITCH SETTINGS ARE BACKWARDS. ANYONE GOT SOME IDEAS? I HAVE LOOKED TO SEE THAT THE GEARS ARE PUT IN RIGHT TWICE BUT MAYBE I AM MISSING SOMETHING.

Looking from the top, your rotor should turn clockwise.

It sounds like you have your blades mounted upside down in their holders...

If you're sure the pitch is also reversed, simply reverse the pitch in your TX settings.

Is this your first Trex? They are beautiful to fly. Good luck.

What Karyn said.

You might want to find the caps lock key as well, all caps is considered shouting.
