Default aileron mess up.

i had my trex set up by a pro and it was flying great, but today when i tried to lift off there was no aileron control.
it just did not work, so i changed the epa on the radio it was set at o% for left and 41% right so i set it at 100% then there
was movement on the swash plate,but now if i give it right stick it leans to the left the aileron seems backwards
i tried reversing the servo on the radio but it just changed the aileron movement to elevator.
i am not very experianced at heli set up so any help would be great.
thank you

You're not including enough information such as, what radio, what exact heli. is it a trex 450, 600? Is it CCPM, or eCCPM. And above all - what did you do to your TX? Sounds as if either you have the TX set to the wrong model, or somehow you screwed up your program.

its a 450 ccpm , sanwa radio, i didnt mess with the radio the aileron just didnt work today i check all conections and linkages and they were fine
so i started looking through the radio and changed the epa and that was it. i use this radio for my raptor and the trex and it is set on the right
model. when i hit right stick the swash drops to the left if i could get it to drop to the right it might be ok, i dont know how this happend.

The sad reality of this hobby is that you must learn to build and set up your own machine. Watch the Finless vids from rc universe and re-build the heli yourself. It will be a much more rewarding hobby.

yup - Not knowing the radio, I guess if it were mine, I would look at the radio programming to see if the swash selection is set up correctly. i know on my dx7 there's multiple types of swash plate selections - If that setting were to get changed somehow, I would think it may act a bit weird.

i would love to start from scratch and do it myself but the guy that set it up didnt realy like electric helis he had alot of problems seting it up
i was there when he set it and it was a mission so i have no hope of starting again, i just thought it might be something simple.
if anyone knows someone i could take it to to sort out the problem and mabe i could learn something as well please let me know.
i live in sydney australia.
