Default Blade 180cfx spinning

Hi guys,

just picked up a Blade 180cfx used. I'm having some issues in that when I attempt to take off the heli starts spinning counter clockwise. It doesn't seem to help if I input any rudder control. I have checked my radio settings and the servo seems to be going the right way. I have also checked the gyro settings and if I manually turn the heli clockwise the gyro pushes the pitch slider out away from the tail. I'm stumped!

I am setting this up with an OpenTX based tx, but I tried an old DX7 I had sitting around and it does the same thing.

I just took the main blades off and spun it up. On a smooth surface I seem to get the unit to go side to side as per my rudder inputs.

When I bought the unit, the seller did lift it off without issue, so i'm really confused!
