Help!
Ft009 won't keep straight

From the start my ft009 has veered to the right. I try to adjust the trim and with the trim all the way to the left it straightens up. On another not it makes horrible left turns. Any tips or tricks would be greatly appreciated

Try to make a mechanical adjustment of the rudder rather than using up all the radio trim to straighten it out. If you use up the left travel with the trim there won't be as much available for turning giving you poor left turns. Some boats turn better one way than the other anyway due to prop rotation direction and other factors so if that is the case you may be just shooting yourself in the foot cutting down your available left travel by using full trim on the radio.
