ouch msr x out of control hit my face

ive had an msr x for 10 days and it has flown great, i flew it 3 or 4 times thismorning giving it atleast 10 mins of rest in between , then i took a break and made food and took a shower easily 30 mins or more then i went back and put a fresh battery in my MSR x expecting to enjoy hovering it around my house and it is like its stuck in full reverse it needs to be almost full input forward to save it from hitting me in the face. i turned it of rebound it to my dx6i and it still happens it is unflyable.

does anyone know why this is happening, can it be fixed or should i just call horizon?

Is your fresh battery the same weight as the original, and located in the same position? Wrong centre of gravity can cause the model to move forwards or backwards. Otherwise, has one of the links come off a servo?

its not a slight drift it is like it wants to go full tilt in reverse, the servo link is still atached and it works like normel sitting on the table useing the right stick to move forward backward lft and right until i turn the throttle on then it want to fly backwards hmmm maybe it is the board. if i can i will upload a video but i need to get a camera

Did you try re-initializing the rx?....I mean, pull the batt out and rebind. These 3axis gyros can get confused and sometimes all they need is a "reboot".
Is there a chance you bumped your trim adjustments?

Check that the swashplate has not separated and the servos are centered and moving freely.

^seen a similar problem, the servos are either jammed or the antirotation estention has come out of its slot at the rear.

its not the servo rod, or the dx6i because i also tryed the stock blade transmitter, reset transmitter, changed battery, checked for propper cyclic movment it is all fine until i put the throttle on. also tryed switching my dx6i from heli to airplane mode and also the swash is set to 90. im not sure what else i could be missing i have a bad feeling that its the board and i may have to ship it back.

no, thats not what i mean. At the back of the swash is a little rod that goes into a prong on the frame which is the antirotation braket, this sometimes pops out and will have similar effect.

take a picture of the head and swash plate and post it here so we can see what's going on.
