Hey guys
Just had the little neon blaze more than a few inches of the ground and boy do i feel chuffed considering the time i have spent setting it up and not forgetting crash cost this has been a good few minutes. she tends to drift to the left so i think a bit of fine tweaking is needed, any suggestion on how to go about fine tuning with out messing up what i have already.

They drift. Hovering is making constant and small corrections to correct for this. Congrats on being airborne.

Hi,

Any heli will drift more when it is very close to the ground. Get it up 3 feet or so and check it then. If everything is set up correctly it should need noting more than a click or two of trim.

Cheers.

To elaborate on what has been said, it is normal for your helicopter to drift left because the tail rotor produces leftward thrust to counteract the torque of the main blades.
