Hi Craig,
I was referring to the trim button on the transmitter itself. It’s the small press button located just below the left / right turning joystick. When the air is calm and with the helicopter hovering, if the helicopter has a tendency to keep rotating to the right, then the gyro can be adjusted by pressing the trim button towards the left. If the helicopter has a tendency to keep rotating to the left, then the gyro can be adjusted by pressing the trim button towards the right. Depending on how far off the trim adjustment is, the trim button can either be quickly press clicked for fine tuning the trim, or the trim button can be pushed in and held longer for a faster larger adjustment.
Basically what the trim button does is it gets the 2 main rotor’s synchronized good to the gyro in relationship to when the helicopter is flying so that the helicopter will hold itself as steady and straight as possible when its flying.
