Change the connector. It's obviously suspect. Whether that fixes anything else is another question that can't be answered till after it's changed, but if wiggling causes power cycling it's *definitely* very very bad. Imagine trying to drive your car and the fuel flow keeps turning on and off.

I re-soldered it on the board and that seemed to help the power cycling. It still doesn't want to lift off. I've got another frame and I will be receiving in the mail a new 180 FC board soon. If all goes well and it binds to my stock transmitter then I'll fly that and forget about the stock MQX. If all my batteries get good flights on the 180 miss-match MQX then I think it is the board mal-functioning on the stock MQX.

I installed a new 180 FCB on the MQX and everything works perfectly.

I found a broken wire on my original MQX and resoldered the leads to the power wires but it still don't work. I am now down to a new FCB to see if that will make it fly again. In AGILITY mode is there a difference from the MQX board to the 180 board in terms of flying agility?
