    Gyro Issue?

    I recently bought a KB combo off ebay with a gyro installed..... and I notice that it is drifting better on left hand turns than right hand turns. I am somewhat of a newb when it comes to R/C cars but I am learning very quickly!!! Anyways what could the issue be? Is there a way to adjust this, or is it a bad gyro? Please help thanks Jon

    Maybe it is a weight issue. Try running it with 2 batteries so that it balances better. If u dont have a second one just add weight in the other battery compartment

    I actually just realized this yesterday! I have yet to try and see, but it makes sense.

    The car is made to run with one battery on the left.

    We know that, but with when it comes to this hobby its try and see, I personally find that it balances better with 2 batteries

    The gyro corrects the pitch on its own. if you arent familiar with them read about them. make sure your tires track straight. and maybe mess with the gyros sensitivity
