Hum. first you servo is not moving in right direction. But you can easily correct this with the servo reverse function. And remember to turn off your ccpm missing as the cx-3x1000 will not work if the mixing is on. And what is the setting for your pitch curve not. Please set all sub trim to 0 and travel to 100%

I have noticed that my copterx 450 is too unresponsive. I have the flybar weights on but if i remove them will it make any difference?

On some of my other helis, I add weights to make them sluggish and less responsive, so removing them should make it more responsive but only remove them 1 pair at a time till you see what it does. You can also try to reduce the expo if that's adjustable on your TX.

Can someone tell me the differences in the copterx kit versions ie ARTF, RTF and Kit. I know the acronyms but i do not know what ehirobo is saying when they advertise as such. So if you get the artf are you basically getting an un assembled kit with electronics or is it partially assembled or completely assembled? TIA

when i got my black angel kit it was only the airframe, no electronics. the main frame was built up for me for the most part. it's really easy to put together.

yeah, after i figured out the linkage issue it started working again just fine. but now today the gyro is being really stupid and my esc thinks im giving it throttle so it just beeps... so frustrating... how could it do that over night? i didnt touch anything after my test flight... back to the bench i go.

there are a lot of cheap servos not that are out in the market. most of the servos that comes from HK (HC) seems to be well priced and runs well... so far i have only tried a couple.. but they seem to work okay.. the longest running servos I have are the Hitec's and futabas.. but for the cheaper servos.. they are still on the test stages... I just hope it will last as long as the Hitecs...
