DX7S stuck in trainer

Someone hooked up to my DX7S to help train me to fly a plane. Now when I go to that "model" it says "NO SLAVE". How do I get it out of this training mode?

I reversed the elevator, rudder and ailerons. But it does not give an option to reverse the "flaps" but it lists Aux 1 and 2, is one of those flaps?

No idea why I can't turn the lights off.

I did not add the rudder, should have, it is hard to steer. The original prop would hit the water. So they included a smaller prop with the float kit.

MSR X leans to the right

Is it normal for a heli like this to lean to the right. I am just learning and it makes it tough, because when I use the rudder it will move in the direction it was leaning before I added rudder.
