Default Trex 150x forward drift

Hi Just got the trex 150x up and running after a day or two trying to get it to bind to my old dx7 with a dsm2 receiver .

Now only issue I have is that it drifts forward at all times and i have to correct it ( hold the stick back) 100 percent of the time it's in the air. Was wondering if that was because of the receiver weighing down the front or something else setup wrong .

Do a gyro reset. Level ground powered up heli(not running) and radio. Pull elevator stick all the way down for at least 3 seconds, blue light should flash faster and when finished, blue light will go back to normal.

Also make sure you do this gyro calibration every time after you crash. I found it will start drifting again after a hard crash (well I crashed more than 5 times hard..)

I have the same problem, drifting forward. I've tried the gyro reset 4 times, still no luck. How did you fix yours? My swashplate level.

If gyro calibration does not fix it, I think the next step is to adjust the accelerometer subtrim using the 150 GRS app.

Put a trash can in front of it and just let it drift right in there where it belongs
