    I would guess that they did....
    Have you flown a heli before..?? If not, get someone who has to help you, or you'll wind up with a bunch of pieces in no time at all....

    If it's a decent helicopter with a swash plate determining main rotor orientation then it should be able to move in any direction. Simpler designs rely on forward motion once airborne and the tail rotor to change direction (no backwards, only forwards).

    I suspect you bought yourself a 2-channel "helicopter", those have only the functions you described.
