Exclamation Need help with my acme fire wolf

I recently purchased a acme firewolf. I havent got to use it properly yet because everytime i try to use it takes control of itself and fires at throttle off in a random and often ends up crashing.

Check your throttle trim.

The ESC on them sets each time you switch it on. Set the trim to neutral on your tx before switching it on.

Tx is your transmitter. If it has 'trim' settings, set the trim neutural (zero).

If you bought it on-line then see if someone here is in your area that can help. Where are you from is a good start so people can see where you are from to see if they can help. Offering to buy lunch is also a good idea.
