Walkera Hoten X.

I'd give you a Banggood link, but the site is not responding right now…

EDIT: Here's the link

Ryan, thanks for the info buddy!

I remember hearing about that quad..
It looks about the same size as the V262..

Hmm.. Interesting! I'll have to do some homework now.

Also, when Walkera's 350 came out,
I saw so many people saying they'd buy it if it flew as nice as the Hoten X.
That's cool.. They must fly really nice! Again, I'll have to check them out..

Can someone who has used the Hubsan Tx's with the Proto's confirm that I am correct on the following?

I bought the TX that the Traxxas QR-1 uses because I saw on the following link of the UPGRADED V2 Hubsan X4 that it uses the same TX:
http://www.banggood.com/Upgrade-Hubs...r-p-71838.html

Which is this TX here:
http://www.banggood.com/Upgraded-Hub...r-p-81885.html

It even says "UPGRADED HUBSAN X4 H107L RC QUAD"
I have come to the conclusion that this is wrong, I can get dual rates to work on the Proto but I have NOT been able to turn off the LEDS or flip the Proto.

I'm guessing I need this TX:
http://www.banggood.com/Hubsan-X4-H1...F-p-75824.html

This TX looks the same as theimacman's video, so it's NOT the V2 tx we need, but the H107C tx which is this one:
http://www.banggood.com/Hubsan-X4-H1...6-p-89080.html




Only reason I mention this is because further back in this thread it was mentioned about needing the V2 TX or the Traxxas QR-1 TX to turn off leds, dual rates and to flip, but in fact we need the specific TX that comes with the new Hubsan X4 with camera... H107C

This is the exact one that I got:
http://www.horizonhobby.com/products...1-qr-1-TRA6239

I cannot return this TX as I already threw out the packaging (stupid me, i know) so I'm wondering if there's any way I can turn off the LEDS with this TX or flip it, or am I stuck having to buy the new TX? Or does anyone here want to sell me one?

Thanks in advance!

UZ: The LEDs turn off with the H107L tx. To turn off the LEDs, hold down the down throttle trim.

When I hold down the throttle trim, the throttle trim beeps down from 0 to -9 and then keeps beeping, LEDs stay on!

It's the same TX linked here:
http://www.banggood.com/Upgraded-Hub...r-p-81885.html

It's programmable, if I hold down the throttle stick it goes in the "SE" mode where I can reverse channels, change rates, expos, the screen shows these options being changed, I thought this was pretty advanced for a cheap looking TX but I didn't know there was a newer version with out the bendable/rotating antenna, the new one has a stationary antenna like the Spektrum DX18 or DX9.

Has anyone else gotten the leds to turn off with the Hubsan TX with the movable antenna?

Yep. I'm using a standard X4 v2 (no camera) TX with the non-functional antenna, and it controls all of the pXn's hidden features (LEDs on/off, flips, dual rates, and gyro re-calibration).

When you say non-functional antenna, you're speaking of the one that can bend and rotate?

Like the one in the image I've attached?

If yes, can you please tell me exactly how you got the LEDs to turn off and how you get it to flip?

That's the one.

LEDs on/off: press and hold the down-throttle trim till the TX beeps.

Flips: high rates (press the Elev/Aile stick - TX LED goes from green to red/green blink) with at least 90% - hover around ten feet off the deck, move the Elev/Aile stick quickly in one direction and then snap it back in the opposite direction. Be prepared to give it some extra throttle after the flip to help it stabilize.

Estes Proto X Nano RTF/Hubsan Q4 Nano

Why bother trying to turn off the leds?
Makes it much more visible.
I like having the leds on.
Great little Quad.

I love it so much I plan on getting a bigger Radio that can access more of it'd features and was wondering if anyone knew if this one will do everything?
