I would recommend flying it without the tail motor engaged until you gain confidence. It actually has pretty good authority in 4 channel mode.
Well yeah, I was planning on that, im just saying for when i first decide to use the 5th channel, i don't wanna dive the damn thing into the ground lol

The trick is to be very light, very light, on the forward at first.
This is a very capable bird and can really boogie.
Did I mention to take it easy? lol

Okay, I just found out something REALLY Strange...

I went to pickup the Radio for the X-350 to move it, and when i did, the antenna fell off.. For a minute I thought I broke it... But after looking at it more, it's not even a real antenna... It's a decoy.. a decoration... Just goes to show the quality of things "Made in China".

Does anybody know the range on these things? I don't wanna be flying, then all of a sudden loose signal...

You're never gonna fly that thing far enough away to lose signal. You won't be able to see it

I received my X350 the other day, and I went out and did a test flight today.

For some reason, I have full backwards trim on the elevator, and it still wants to fly forward when hovering. I just can't trim it enough.

Does anybody know what the problem could be?
What could caused elevator trim issues?

==============

Also, another questions I have is, will the AnyLink allow me to use my DX6i transmitter with the X350?

You certainly may, and you would be correct too!
The only thing I got out of Global was, "Try both and see if you can notice a difference"

I recently had to replace the aluminum frame plate due to a crash. Got everything back together and it worked fine. Flying around the yard fine. I put it away for the day. The next day I took it to my bro-in-laws house, and I can't get this thing to fly at all! It is spinning around out of control like nothing I have ever seen!! Counter clockwise. I tried to trim it out, but it is unbelievable!! Strange cause it was flying great the day before, and I did nothing to it over night. Is a motor dieing? I hear they burn out easily. Any experts know what would cause this?

Are upper and lower blades spinning? Or only one? Yea, you tuck it into the bed you kiss goodnight and next morning has pneumonia. The brushed motors usually die when you try the next time after a good flight.

Yes, both blades spin, I get good lift. Just keeps rotating and rotating and rotating non stop! I try to trim it out, but it just slows it down, then I hit max on the trim. I have to fight with it to keep it from spinning. It's not a servo adjustment, not sure what to do. I am thinking it's just a burnt motor. The day before I had awesome flights, and maybe the motor got too hot?
