yes, this little heli does do that. it's likely due to balance and the the transmitter not remembering your trim settings after power off, but it's made that way. You have to steer it up, adjust the trim, land it.. and then it should rise better. You can try adding weight to the other side with a piece of clay to see if it solves the problem. If so, you can add metal or electrical tape to the landing gear on one side. ~VLAD~

It's common for this copter to lift and drift to the left. Likely caused by weight, so you can add additional weight to the opposite sides landing gear, but ultimately more weight isn't better. Sadly there is no control for this drift, you have to compensate manually to keep it perfect. ~VLAD~

No this wobble is not caused by the tail motor. i have had 3 that have all done the same thing. The fix is simple. The tail would cause it to go back and forth like it is turning back and forth with rudder. When he says bobbing he is talking about a oval shaped motion that the heli does while hovering. looks like its rocking front to back. tail wag is different and has to do with gyro over sensitivity. To fix: Look at the flybar and check for even flybar paddles (if looking down the flybar make sure one is not angled differently than the other) you can twist them a little to manipulate them. #2 the small extensions connecting the flybar to the links may be bent up or down. Again, looking down the flybar make sure they are pretty level with one another (you can slightly bend them back but be gentle. #3 There is a pin connecting the flybar to the head that goes through. What happens is, after a few bang into things this can start to move out just a fraction of a mm. You will notice that the flybar can move back and forth like it should very easily but there is also a little play rocking it the other way that it is not supposed to go. this amount will be very small but plenty to adversely affect the heli. take a pair of needle nose pliers and carefulle push that pin in just a touch until the flybar tightens enough to stop the movement. Be sure its not too tight so it takes away from the easy movement the flybar is supposed to have. I 100% promise its not the tail motor.
