which direction should the rudder turn the tail?
just got a clone... first heli...
if i'm facing the tail of the heli and i move the stick (rudder) to the right, should the the tail move to the right or left.
of course the nose move in the opposite direction as the tail, so do the directions of the stick correspond with the nose or the tail?
just want to make sure i'm learning this the correct way.
thanks in advance

Try to get used to flying the nose. The answer is to the left facing the tail. The rotor is spinning clockwise, and the tail wants to go counterclockwise, so thrust is needed to compensate it. If you are flying the nose then it's to the right hand. It can get confusing, but think of it as you flying in the cockpit.
