Any luck on this? I've been grounded for over two months now with still no reply from Dualsky.

Going on three months now that I have been grounded with no reply from Dualsky. Got a bit from 2dog and then nothing

Is anybody home?

Really regretting this purchase at this point

At random times I loose control of role control in one direction. The first time it happened on the third flight but I managed to get it down without damage. Re-armed it and flew the rest of the battery with no issues.

As a result of this flight, my pre-flight is now to run the motors up a bit and check that the controls are responding as they should. It's a 50-50 that the controls do respond and I re-arm and it works. The last flight I had to try re-arming it twice to get it to work.

This quad is now grounded until I figure this issue out.

Please help, I have contacted Dualsky directly and sent a message to 2dogrc directly about this and have yet to get a response.

Thank you

The layout I chose is one of the three recommended in the instructions.

Props to 2dog for trying to get an answer but this is ridiculous.

Will not unlock

My hornet 460 will start up, go into lock mode, and I can go into setting mode, but the system will not unlock. The manual says that holding the sticks in the lower outward corners should cause the motors to idle. They don't idle. what do I do?

It sounds like a signal issue OR configuration of your transmitter. If you have channels on the radio reversed when they should be normal, it won't work. Check the manual to make sure you have aileron, elevator, rudder, and throttle channels set properly.

I would also check to make sure the receiver is getting a signal from the transmitter by plugging in a servo or something simple. Also check the wires from the receiver to the FC and make sure they are not backwards.

Report back, and we can keep trouble shooting!

G'day guys,
Have had my Hornet 460 in the garage for a year, other priorities, brought it out again & now i recall why it's been in the shed- the second i touch the throttle (left thumbstick) on my DX6i the 460 just maxxes power on one side & flips. I reckon the Pots on the FC430 need tuning - can someone please posts a photo of their fc430 so I can copy the pot settings? Would be SO GRATEFUL for your help
