Yawing in wrong direction

I have a stock ArduCopter frame with ArduCopter 2.0.55. I have enabled the mag, and it's soldered as described in the wiki.

It hovers very stable, and yaw is not drifting. However, when I apply yaw input with the rudder stick, the quad yaws in the wrong direction.

It looks correct in the radio calibration in the mission planner. Moreover, it arms when I move the rudder stick to the right. Hence, I don't think I should reverse the rudder channel. 

Any ideas?

  • After a few flights, it got much better. Compass offsets, perhaps?

  • Ok, I tried again now. What happens is:

    1. I take off and hover. It hovers nicely without any drift

    2. I apply some slight left rudder. Now the copter starts rotating to the right.

    3. I apply even more left rudder. Now the copter rotates the correct direction (left)

    4. Moving the rudder stick to the right works fine - the copter rotates to the right.

    5. After this has happened, the copter yaw starts drifting to the left without input.

    I have checked all the arms and motors -- they have no visible bends or twists.

    Anything else I can try?

    That can sometimes seem the case for small yaw movements if the motors are a little askew. Does it still do that if you move the yaw stick a bit more?

"Wow, Ning2 looks really great on mobile. I had sort of drifted away as my browse-time went more on my phone, so this is great."
