kk2 tricopter spinning

I have built a simplecopter tricopter with kk2 ver 1.5 controller.
When I throttle up to attempt a hover it starts spinning in left or right.
I have mixer setting for yaw at -100 for a digital servo. I have played with settings with none helping.

Any suggestions appreciated.

I am on the field, no access to flashing software. Is there a way I can reverse the servo trough the menu?
Read the manual but most be missing it.

I flew with a Multiwwi before and know I just had to tick a switch ... but new to KK2.1
An fast response will be much appreciated as I am on the flying filed alone and don't get the tri to fly.

Dunno if this is fast enough (it luck of timing if someone can answer something quick), but reversing a servo on a kk2.1.x is done in the mixer menu.

go to the mixing page in the menu, then select the channel your Tricopter servo is connected to (usually channel 4 -- it'll be marked Servo at the bottom). reverse the sign of the yaw mix.

If you're using a clockwise prop on M1 and 3, and counter clockwise on M2, there's nothing else you'll need to change.

Thanks CraftyDan. That was a fast response :)
But I did figured out the procedure while reading through the manual in detail.

A bit strange though. On the multiWii this important topic is very clearly solved via a specific feature-box (revers yaw).
On the Kk, it is solved through diving into the menu's and changing some values., which is not so simple.
I find this strange as I find the KK MUCHO easier to get it flying then the multiwii through some buttons on the board.
I would find it very logic to find a "reverse yaw"- feature in the LOAD MOTOR LAYOUT-menu.
