Counterclockwise spinning Helicopter


Im new to RC Helicopters and my Blade msr flys well, but my FX037 helicopter spinns counterclockwise. Why is this happenning? This helicopter came out of the box with a 7.4V 700 mAh littiuhm battery, can I upgrade to a 7.4V 800 mAh LiPo battery?

Rotating counter-clockwise means the tail motor isn't working correctly. It could be the motor, wiring, the connection or the board. If you can return it, you really should. Quality and workmanship is the worst.

If you knew how these products were manufactured and marketed, you would understand.

Couldn't it just mean there's not enough rudder trim? Or does the FX037 have a HH gyro?

I didn't take the OP's use of "counterclockwise" to mean main rotor rotates CC. My interpretation is that the fuselage is rotating CC.

The main rotor turns clockwise. It causes the heli to rotate counter-clockwise. The tail motor is supposed to stop it from doing so. It would be unusual for the trim to exert that much effect on rotation.
