Help!
UMX Radian

Hey guys, long time lurker here and finally got around to getting a user name

So I picked up this neat little plane and flew it for the first time yesterday without any problems.

Today I got the battery charged up and was ready to go hit the beach where theres some wind so I can hang in the sky for a while....

Tried to bind to my radio, wouldnt bind. Figured out that the rapid led blink was due to the battery not being fully charged.... I found out the little plug on the battery was broken, so I quick repaired it. Got the battery charged and was able to bind to my radio...

I test the controls, no throttle

I test the elevator and rudder and they are in and out of service, I will call it stuttering.....

The Gyro was active. Whenever I would move the rudder/elevator, it would jitter and move to where I controlled it and then it would quickly go to neutral and then back again..

I already have 2 batteries on order so I can have more flight time, so if its the battery Im not to mad about it.

Could I have a faulty plane? Is it just a bad connection at the battery and its no good?

Im newly back into RC flight and all this new technology is crazy/amazing
I feel like my old nitro plane is a dinosaur with its AM Futaba system.. But hey, it still does the job!

Any help would be appreciated

OK thanks

Im going to take a better look at it and get a full diagnosis before posting again.

I was just last night because I spent a lot of money on this thing and I expect it to be reliable.

The troubleshooting guide in the manual is very helpful too so Im running through that again.
