I just got a WLtoys F959. This is my first RC Plane.

I took it out today for the first flight and did not have much success in controlling the glider. The lane wanted to climb and porpoise. It would go to the left but would not go to the right. I never did get it to level out. i used the low setting, gave it about half throttle to get it into the air. I did have a 3-4 mile an hour wind which may have been some of my problem. I tried playing with the trim buttons, but couldn't keep it in the air long enough to have any success.

I have watched about every YouTube video that I can find. I found two different diagrams showing two different locations for the trim buttons to use, so now I am confused as to which one is correct.

Do I use the trim button next to the right stick or left stick for vertical trim?

Do I use the trim button next to the under the right stick or left stick for left and right adjustments on turning?

I would appreciate any other information that would help me out. I am placing the battery all the way forward into the nose of the plane, but I have not checked any other balancing. Do I need to do that? If so, How do I check balancing it out?

I just got my new WLtoys F959 Sky King. I took it out today and tried flying it for the very first time and was not real successful. Did a lot of porpoising and crashes. I had about a 3-4mph wind so that may have been some of the problem.

I gave the plane half throttle and launched it. The plane just wanted to climb and go to the left. I was trying to trim it, but was not having any success.

I have watched all of the YouTube videos that I can find and I have found two different video diagrams telling me which trim buttons to use to level out this plane.

My question is about the exact location of the up vertical trim button is it located on the next to the right stick, or the left stick. I also need to know what the location is of the rudder trim button. Next to the right stick or the left stick?

Does the speed trim button do anything?

I will appreciate any other advice you can give me as a beginner RC plane flier. Thanks
