more tail issues.. please help out

ok yesterday i had a slow CW drift. i found my tail housing wasnt perfectly straight. so today i loaded up the soft 3d preset(was beginner) and off to the field to give her a test.
im running a ice lite 50 with the gov. set to 2800 rpms. now the issue im having is while appling pos. collective the tail kicks to the right pretty good. the servo and linkage is at 90 and slider is center. so i adjusted yaw gain to 70 and that helped a ton, but the tail still kicks to the right when applying pos. collective.please tell me there is something in the control unit to adjust to fix this. yesterday it was not doing this while i did a test hover to verify my vibes were gone. the only thing it did yesterday was drift slowly CW.

one more question i have, is the housing supposed to be level with the frame or is the tail blades supposed to be in line with the main shaft ?

If you have the USB programmer use the advance setting under tail tuning called collective compensation. It applies some extra tail pitch based on the amount of collective used. Start with 3 or 6 then work your way up. Also make sure the grub screw on the tail hub is snug and not slipping.
