Also try binding with the transmitter 6 to 10 feet away.

I have this problem often, works OK after waiting.
Phoned the supplier and sent it back - yes I tried this trick, and a few others. It worked SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO well and flew beautifully - for 6 flights

Don't say it's buggered on it's first day?
My 1st MQX did the same thing using the RTF transmitter. Eventually I couldn't get it to bind at all. I have a 2nd MQX which the transmitter works fine with. So I ordered a new 4 in 1 card and that did the trick. Both work fine now.

If you have a vertical camera you can use some baseball cap like in the picture. Still looking strange, but no other accessories. I think any man have a cap even using very very rare.

enjoy,

Problem is, the AD could be wrong, and it might actually be a DX6i. Laziness is not limited to this forum - it's rampant on Craigslist. I'm a computer programmer, so I've experienced more than my fair share of pain caused by one wrong character - this stuff is important, people

I have the Blade MQX as a beginner quadcopter to get use to the controls. I had a hard time getting past the fact that the controls under the right thumb are not behaving like a coaxial helicopter.

But once you get use to that, the MQX is awesome and indestructible!

I had a problem where the antenna on the board was touching the motors wires and caused a TX transmission failure.

I added some scotch tape on it and never got the problem again !

Also, being very difficult to know on a long distance if it's the front or the back, i added a " tail " made of a beginner ping-pong stick ( those comes in pack of 4 usually ) and this helped me a lot without fpv.

Unfortunately, the payload isn't enough for my needs.

I'm getting the RTF HPQ1 ( or t380 ) on the 26th of april !

can't wait to see how this compare to the MQX !

I plan to mount a FPV on it using my myvu glasses.

This is a great forum !

EDIT : here is the pic for u guys.

I have - 35 Expo on rudder + 35 Aileron/ Elevator
I just got a DX6i (been using the RTF TX up to now). I bound it to my MQX and flew without changing any setting, and I was impressed with how much better I can control the MQX outside. However I noticed it is much harder to control smaller movements flying inside.

Reading through here and seeing what settings you guys are using, I've changed mine to ...

Elevator: DR = 100% / Expo = +35%
Aileron: DR = 100% / Expo = +35%
Rudder: DR = 100% / Expo = -35%

Can't wait to get home tonight and try it this way.

So .. other than these settings, is there anything else you guys change in the TX? Can you set the throttle cut to work on the MQX for example?

Thanks,

For you dx4e dudes.

I have a question for you dx4e guys. I've been flying mine on high rates with expo. The rudder is a little sluggish. Does anyone like it better NOT using expo on the dx4e?

Thanks,

Jdog

I don't think that is anything wrong with or without expo on your radio. I am only using a DX5e at this point and I love the way it flys with EXPO and low rates. As a Quadcopter rotating around centerpoint is not an easy task for the 4 motors too do without some sort of off axis or forward flight. There is nothing that a flat and level Quad can do for faster spinning. Thats where a coaxial or single rotor with tail motor excels. Try to enjoy it as is because it is plenty fun as it is.
