Thx in advance !
There is nothing wrong with your radio. Thats normal nimh behavior. You will lose some quickly from a full charge, then it will slowly go down over the next few months, even if you arent using it.

I have a BAD problem with my Nano CPX. If I throttle up, the left aileron servo goes down and the elevator servo a little up. While throttling no reaction of the aileron or elevator stick on the radio. If the main rotor stands still the aileron and elevator works fine.
Does anyone heard about such a issue, and how to fix it?

Please help!

Did you try Rebinding?


My ancestors are from Hamburg! They came over here in 1892. We still have the farm in the family.

I also noticed they're shorter by 1/4" or thereabouts...

Hey today was the first time I've actually used the bullet blades. I was pleasantly surprised at how well it flew non-3d. I was just tinkering around the yard and it wasn't as twitchy. I like them

I love bullets, and they flip pretty decently too

I loved my bullet blades but cracked one and HH is out of stock as usual. There are regular blades and aftermarket blades but every time I check they are out of the bullets.

I'm looking at getting a bunch of Hyperion 240's for my 1S birds, what is the runtime difference with them over the stock and hyp160 packs???

Just found they weigh 6.5g, so quite heavy adding 2.4g to the nano, how does it feel with the heavier battery???

Just out of curiosity, do you fly all thumbs or do you add in a little index finger?

Reason I ask is that I just recently switched from all thumbs to thumb and index. I don't do a true pinch as my thumb is still on the top rear of the stick and has total control... the index finger is there to give me more precision. I can still move my index out of the way for fast stick movement, but the index comes into play for fine precision movements (such as hovering). The problem I found with just thumbs is that I do not have any spacial awareness, I always found myself going back to neutral to gauge how much input I was giving in any given direction. The only thing giving me feedback was the stick tension (which I have maxed out on my DX8). Just having my index touching the stick my brain now has 2 points of reference and I know exactly where I am regards to neutral stick. No more fishing back to neutral or giving too much input which has significantly improved and smoothed out my flying. Having my index finger involved also makes me feel more like I have my "hands" on the sticks which in turn puts me more "virtually" in the cockpit.

I have only been getting used to this new technique for a few days, but it has greatly improved my stick skills and now I feel more connected to my aircraft. I had tried this once before at the beginning of winter when I realized that pinching gave me that 2D point in space. I gave it up because I was truly trying to pinch, sharing the stick with both my thumb and index, and although my precision greatly improved I could no longer make fast stick movement using both fingers. By leaving my thumb in control and using my index as my little helper for my 2D reference point and to give me the precision I just can't get with thumbs only...

Anyways... I just thought I would share my experience in hopes it might benefit others...

I just replaced my damaged dx6i antenna. It still functioned but was busted at the joint, I had to use heat shrink to keep it in place.

Now that I'm able to point the antenna straight upwards at a 90 degree angle again I've only had 1 out of 15 flights today where it didn't bind on the first try. It has usually taken 2-4 tries until today.

Very happy, anyone else out there should try the 90 degree angle as well. Plus I noticed some damage on the antenna wire when I removed it from it being twisted and moved soo much, must have rubbed the insulation off.

That's what my LHS shared with me also. Have the DX6i w/ the individual NiMH stock batts as opposed to the the "wrapped pack" stock in the DX7s. Just thought it to be an odd behavior as both sources of power are NiMH.
Will stay the course with the stock pack and monitor for awhile, but a 4k MAH Lipo pack may be down the road.
Thx for the input Dacaur !

I have been using my DX8 for over a year with the stock 4.8V 2000mah nimh battery and it has worked very well. Yes, the voltage will drop quickly after a charge, but even with heavy use I have only gotten it down to like 4.6V before I decided to charge it. I believe the low voltage warning is at 4.3V.

Is there a good setup to really tame this down? (Numbers?) for my DX7S?
