1SQ flight problems

Bought this little quad about a week ago. Been having soo much fun
with this thing. An absolute blast to fly, even for a relative noob like me.
So took her out flying last night and in the middle of a hover it flipped upside
down and slammed onto the deck!!
Thought it might be a glitch, checked all controls, and took her up again-
same thing!!
I saw some threads on here bout it being a bind prob so I rebound my
dx6i(with the anylink module)-and she flew fine for a short time longer,
then the same thing happened.
Called Hobbico and they said it was a bad board.
Anybody else have his problem??

Weird. No, I use the Anylink with my JR9503 without any issues. I guess it was a bad board then..

Good luck with the new one!

I've also heard about glitchy Spektrum radios...is that why you have a JR??
Haha, anyway, Ultimate Hobbies is gonna give me an exchange per Hobbico's
permission.
Hope to flying again by tomorrow.
Have you gone to bigger packs for longer flight times??
Or just more packs??

Same issues

1SQ will take off, fly fine, then flip out of control. Try to take off again and it'll just flip and flop around. Unplug the batt, replug it in, and it might fly fine for a bit but inevitably the problem resumes. Not a batt problem as I have 4 of them. Also noticed that if I hold it and apply throttle, I can feel it want to flip. Give just a touch left stick as if to pirouette and the rear left and front right motors stop completely. Opposite is true with right stick.

1SQ flight problems

I have encountered the same problems , but i have discovered that it's the problem with the gyro control system , so i need to unplug the battery connector and plug it again (of course also check each motor ) , then try flight it will work fine, but sometimes even during spanning in air , the 1sq get unexpected revolves around itself and needs the same gyro rest , i think that may be due to a damage in gyro system electro-mechanical chip , may be a result of strong crash accident or a manufacturing defection.
