T-REX 450 › My 450 when I land still spins a little?

I am wondering why my 450 still spins a little when i land? Throttle lever is all the way day and she still spins, real slow but spins. I gave the throttle trim two clicks down and that did the trick.
Is this good to do? Why do you suppose I am having this problem?
Thanks

That will work but I would try to change the trim within your remote. (Depending on what remote you are using) it should have a subtrim for your throttle which you can take down some. It could also be your throttle curve.... It is hard to say without knowing your setup.

I meant to say the throttle lever on the tx is all the way down when I land and yes I used my throttle trim to get it to stop! So this is ok, I am going to check my throttle curve but the last time I checked it was at 0 low stick!

Could be a radio problem.

If you have a computer radio, check your end-point-adjustment.

By the way this all started when I got the trueblood swash leveler and to get my swas to level I did exactly what I was suppose to. Set trims and travels to get it level
I have the 450v2 everything stock, and a dx7!
Thanks for your help guys!

Don't use trims and travel to set your swash plate level, adjust your servo to swash linkages to get everything level with your trim and sub trims set to 0...

I agree with slider. Adjust using your control links when it comes to leveling your swash. I think if you set all your trims to zero then level your swash correctley, it may fix your problem.
I made the same mistake early on but it seemed to affect my pitch more than my actual throttle.

Thanks for all your help guys, these are all legit reasons. I did find the problem, it was my stock esc, I had only unplugged one wire going to the motor when i was adjusting my pitch. I new I heard funny sounds, well now I know unplug all three wires. I must have reprogramed the esc somehow with the throttle lever.
Well I reprogramed my esc and everything is back to normal
