Default Helis drifting left

I am having big issues with Phoenix. When I go to hover any heli, they drift left very quickly. I give no other control input than collective. I took a video of what is happening, the controller view is on to see that I am making no movements, unfortunately I cannot upload it. PM me and I can email it to you.

Please help.

Any heli with the main rotor spinning clockwise will drift left after takeoff.

I realize this but it is very exaggerated. It seems very out of the norm.

Which TX are you using? have you set it up properly for use with the sim? Also have you used it successfully with the sim before or is this your first use with this exact setup?

When this happens to me, my Tx (DX7) is not set up for the right model. Sometimes I had an airplane selected. Be sure that you have a dedicated model set up in your Tx just for simming, and set it up according to how they say (heli, 1 servo, I think.). Select that model before you plug in the sim cable.
