I'll state here what I did in the Nine Eagles thread, since this is where it belongs...

No mention of how to bind this to another Tx.
Mind you that manual does state it is specifically for the RTF kit.

G'day ... I have a 180QX on order, but I'm also quite interested in this little Quad, which I'd seriously consider in comparison to the 180QX, even though the 1Si is a little smaller.

BUT ... You can not buy extra LiPos to fit this in Oz!! ... That's mainly due to the plug/socket type used, and therefore, if I did get a 1Si, I'd be obliged to modify the power lead to the control board to the same type mini-JST type fitted to the Blade mQX and 180QX.

HOWEVER ... If this was relatively easy to achieve ... I.e. R&R the original lead ... then a similar sized Nano-Tech 350mah 1S LiPo could be used that is readily available here, and which hopefully looks like it'd fit. Be worth checking!

On top of this anyone in Oz, or any country other than the USA, cannot buy any OE LiPos from the USA for it either due to the draconian shipping restrictions!

It would have been nice if Heli Max had used the more universally used mini-JST connectors, like just about everyone else.

Otherwise this would be worth considering, despite the apparently mandatory mods that would be required.
At least this Little Black Dick is reasonably handy with a soldering iron. Although at a pinch the OE plug could be cut off and a JST socket grafted on ... just have to sure about polarity though .??
The desirable features however, may well override the problems.
This info mainly for any Oz readers browsing this thread!
Daffy.

Lots of info building up on the new release thread:
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2023797

Is there a way to have everything in that thread placed here? There are 3 threads now, New Releases, this one and the original Galaxy Visitor 2 thread. Be nice if they could be compiled. I have posted pictures of the inside of the quad showing the FC and wiring etc. I will post the TX pictures soon.

How does the return to pilot function work, considering this likely does not have GPS.

Not sure how the return to pilot works ,but you point the tx at the quad push the button and it comes right back at you so much so it surprised me.

Probably, there is a maximum RSSI estimator included in the RX board

I agree, color leaves a lot to be desired.
