Drifting left
Why does it drift
Tags: Syma X9
January 7, 2015 - 1:00 pm

I had a new one recently act wonky when it flew.  It would drift sideways, and when I tried to fly straight it often would rotate around in a circle.

Holding it in front of me while the props were at full speed I noticed that the lower set of blades fluttered more than the upper set.  When I turned it off and checked it was easy to tell that the lower blades were definitely loose in their clamps.

Using a tiny screwdriver I tightened the clamps on the blades and that fixed the problem!!  The helicopter flies as well as ever, and can easily hover steady.

Check your blade clamp screws and see if they're loose.

Remove the canopy and nudge the battery to your right, very gently.

Remember that the S111 is heavier than the 107 so ambient room

conditions can make a difference as well that you might not have

experienced flying the S111. Open door, heating and air-conditioning,

ceiling light on or off can make a difference, Good luck and 

hope this helps!

Hello there guys,

 I have a S111G with no issues and now just received my new S107 and on a slow liftoff and while hovering it wants to go left. Is there a way to correct this?

Thank you Very much for your help.
