Hi, I recently got a T380 and a THx9 tx/rx and I'm having real problems getting them to communicate... the T380 beeps continuously which I think means it's not getting a signal, but I'm fairly sure I've followed all the instructions properly - binding etc... Any help gratefully received!

Thanks
Brian

The aircraft relatively long time LOTUSRC flight.

Flying a long time, we must ensure a favorable factor of three aspects:
Power system efficiency is high enough (the match between the motor, blades, power transfer to the right).
The machine itself is light enough (to use a new or special material).
Ensure the strength of the body (to use high-strength materials).

My T380 work well with Turnigy 9x tx/rx.
Just make sure about your channel position and set a little trim, and fly.

Hi guys, any idea why this is happening. The front left motor is always trying to spin faster than the others. It just tries to tip over on take off. As you can see the props are on correctly and the ACC calibration has been done.

Trouble shooting list:

You stated you've tried various radio's, does this mean you've also tried different receivers?

Have you tried swapping the motors to see if you continue to get the same behaviour or if the behaviour follows the motor?
If it follows the motor then look at trouble shooting the motors, otherwise it's either the signal coming in (which could still be something on the RX maybe?) or something on the T380's boards, faulty sensor on the FC board or perhaps faulty ESC board.

Just kinda thinking out loud here as i'm new to the hobby and don't really know the in's and out's well but this thread gets spammed by the two guys who are obviously selling these things so you may not get much help here so maybe worth trying to fins a T380 trouble shooting thread.

Good luck with it.

Hey thanks for the reply.

The thing is, I have just sold the quad and they guy who bought it sent me that video. It was working fine when I last used it and now he is having these issues.

I only had it about a week and never had it act like that. He said if I cant figure out the problem then he wants to get a full refund. Im stumped because he sent me another video of him doing the ACC calibration and then trying to fly it straight after and it still wants to flip.

T380/2 (5 min 8 sec)


It must be something with the radio system surely? Could any damage from shipping it to him cause a fault like that? I know the New Zealand postal service tend to throw things around a lot. They warn you when you post an item that it needs to be packed well enough to survive being dropped from 4 feet onto the floor.

Has anyone else had this problem and managed to solve it?
