Re: finished biulding Raptor 50 but

According to the instructions to make the center trim of mode 0 and mode 2
the same, you need to switch between the two 5 times in one second intervals
while maintaining slow level forward flight. To be honest, my Raptor
30V2heading hold
still turns to the left after the procedure.

From the instrutions:
While hovering or in slow forward flight simply switch the gyro mode/gain
switch on your transmitter back and forth five times between the two modes.
Hold each mode for about 1 second. The right timing for this is easily
obtained by counting the clicks of the switch out aloud to yourself as you
do it. If the adjustment of the tail linkage is within a reasonable range of
the correct setting the Quick-trim will now compensate for the residual trim
error and the trim state of mode 0 should match that of mode 1. Repeat the
Quick-trim sequence several times to allow the gyro to home in on the
perfect trim.

Good luck
