I was looking foward to flying this thing and now it looks like I'll have to send it back.
I had the exact same problem with my second one. I asked for a replacement PCB from BG - doesn't look like they're going to send it. I soldered the bridge as mentioned on RCGroups and it flies fine now.

My Question
What kind of range do other folks get with their DH9116? I seem to have about a 10-15m maximum range on my orange 9116. I get a much longer range out of all my other outdoor helis (V911, V929, V939, MJX F45). I've had the F45 more than a block away from me and had no trouble maintaining full control. I'll have to compare to my blue 9116 which just returned to duty last night after replacing the blades.
