Ok, swash is perfectly level. but on the hover my heli keeps drifting left. I need to trim right aileron so bad to stop the drifting. any solution?

I was actually just looking for an easy explanation of translating tendency and stumbled upon it.

Thanks guys. I guess swash tilted slightly right is better than perfectly level swash.

Perfectly level swash is only for setup purposes . What ever it takes to level out the helicopter is fine .If you had to have a level swash plate all the time you couldn't ever fly a helicopter

You can also shorten rod versus trim.

Since you had to use trim, I assume it does not have a FBL.

Shortening rod is the mechanical equivalent to electronic trimming for same end result...level flight.

Oh...IKON2. Should not need any trim at all.

Seems blade phasing could be your issue instead.

All helis and planes have an expiration date stamped on them...you only find it after you crash!!
