Default YAWS to right

Hi guys?
Frustrated. I have a few mCPx helis and usually love them. I have one that continually yaws to the right, as if I am giving it right rudder command. Just swapped the board with an mCPx that never did that and sure enough - still happening. Any ideas?
Thanks!
S

Tail rotor blade or motor is going bad..swap tail booms with a known good one.

Continually as in drifts slowly/constantly? Or kicks occasionally or irregularly?

Drift may be corrected with trim (I know they say don't, but it should work) and CCW kicks are caused by vibrations confusing the gyro. Watch your tail fin, skids, and battery wire closely in hover for blurring. If you've got vibes, track 'em down.

Thanks for that. Will dig into it.
Best,
