    I there a calibration for the ST10+ , as title my Q500 is drifting non stop slowly to the right with sticks centred , when checking hardware page on the ST I can see the stick is showing a reading that would make the Q not stay in position on a hover , but I cant find a way to calibrate the controller .

    Thanks

    Hi Uptowndisco,

    You may try calibrating accelerometer to stop drifting issue. 1:30 mark in this video

    Make sure machine is on a flat level surface.

    I dont think its craft calibration even the flight sim does the same as flying for real with the Q500

    does this in Angle mode so not in a safe circle , I found how to calibrate the sticks through a Ytube video , but
    even after calibration it still does this , it is like the centre position is off as I can see the centre number changing
    when monitoring in the hardware monitoring page on the controller.

    same in Flight Sim, it is like it needs Trim , but the trims do nothing on the ST10

    You may calibrate your throttle and cyclic stick. If you need additional assistance please call our tech support department at 1-844-898-6332.

    During calibration of my ST10 + due to a right drift problem, I noticed the J4 box failed to calibrate, while all other functions were successful. I believe the J4 has to do with the right hand toggle which may be causing the drift right problem.
    Does anyone know what the trouble is and how to correct it so it does complete the calibration? Is it a defective right toggle?

    I had a slight problem with this. I took some canned air and blew out the dust while moving the stick. Problem was solved. Some on here had gone as far as to disassemble the st10 and cleaning it.

    Thanks! I took the ST10+ apart and blew everything out. Did find a few tiny pieces of grass inside. Then I did the calibration and it corrected.
    Thank you for the suggestion!

    You would be surprised what a little bit of dust does to those POTS. Glad you got it sorted out. Happy Flying!
