Heli-Max 1SQ RTF unstable, flips out on take-off
Picked up a Heli-Max 1SQ RTF from Amazon.co.uk last week. Across three battery charges, maybe two hours of experimenting, and roughly 25 take-off attempts, only 3 have resulted in successful flight.
Many attempts just flip out on take-off. Either just a pair of rotors spin, flipping the quad, or three spin and the quad spins then flips. Either is a crash.
I've tried to contact Hobbico (email@example.com) but had no response -- 2 attempts over 6 days (4 working days), nothing but their automated reply.
Here's what I sent them:
Thanks in advance!

I've watched a lot of video reviews of the 1SQ this afternoon and tried to pay special attention to the state of the two LEDs on the FCB.
This is most easily seen in the following YouTube video (linked to 4m35s where the LEDs are clearly shown).
The rear most LED indicates connection to Tx.
The central LED is full on.
In another video, the central LED seemed to be blinking constantly.
In mine, the central LED usually fails to light.
I'm thinking that mine is faulty. Time to send back to Amazon.
