Default DOH!

So are you wondering what would happen if you took off a Trex 500 Pro with the GT5 while still in a menu, say, the pitch menu? Would make for a fun flight, the heli would drift widly all over the place requiring constant correction to keep in the air and land safely.
Of course this is just theoretical, I'm not stupid enough to do it twice on the same pack

Someone had to try it, right?

Now it makes me think ,the heli was consistently drifting hard to the left and to the back. Does this mean my swash is not level? My CoG is correct and the swash sure looked level to me (eyeball + horns 90 and rods the same length)

HAHA i thought i was the first, had to auto it down!, I went into setup then did some adjustments, went out and flew, no good so now i reinitialise everytime i do adjustments just to be safe.
