No Just tried mine, flash red when bound with RX and no throttle, and go blue with power on, first time I only really noticed it, and somwhere near the centre there is one that does flash blue. first time I noticed these colours.

Mine looks good now I have red LED lights for back and blue for the front. Looks good at night.

The GPS version you can use the 4S or 5S.
Conventional products, plus a dedicated module.

My TX is definitely bound. My receiver flashes red then goes solid red after the three beeps that signal it is in X mode. All channels seems to work properly. I am just reluctant to fly it with the motor seemingly not spinning properly.

Can you tell me at what point on your throttle do you achieve lift off? The win has died down today so might get brave and see if I can get it airborne without doing any damage.

Not Happy !!

I took the T580P+ outside to see how it would fly. Throttled up, trimmed it and it took to the sky, I was elated for all of about 15 - 20 seconds. Then the motor on the suspect arm seemed to slow and down it came crashing heavily and breaking an arm and motor (see pics)

Upon close inspection all three wires from the escape top the motor on the suspect arm are "stripped" in almost identical places and I am thinking this could have been the cause of less power to the motor on that arm.

I now have a crashed quad and no idea if and where I can get another arm to replace the smashed one. The other three motors power up still and work well.

Propeller:T580 use 4 pcs 1260 specifications of plastic composite material is frontal and versa professional propllers, in installation please in strict accordance with the instructions of the guidance. Because of the motor shaft position are nylon ring, propeller installation shall not pressure to ring, need to keep 1 mm or so clearance, to prevent motor bearings is pressured leading to motor rotation hindered.

Fuselage structure: check whether the screw loose or not , guarantee the structure fit solid tightly , no exists loose sloshing phenomenon . So far, the basic work before flight are ready.
