Well almost

After a quite a break in heli-flying, I've got turned onto this little beast by a friend of mine. With my line of work I travel ALOT, i am never home, the blade seems small enough to fit in the luggage quite well. Anyways...

So I've got her few days ago, I've been flying it around, (mostly in a hotel room) I love it.
Today however, it decided to turn against me!! as soon as I connected the battery and advanced the throttle just a little it went completely insane! It actually took off and hit me in the arm! that evil little thing! Thank God it was my arm not my eye.

So after whacking it with a pillow I was able to disconnect the battery, and of course, I couldn’t resist another try. I re-set both crystals, re-routed the antenna, plugged the battery and went for it. You should have seen me handling it away from my face like it was some dangerous animal. I slowly laid it on the bad, with a pillow in my other hand of course (just in case i needed to whack it again if it tried to take off on it’s own) Sure enough, as soon as I try to advance the throttle it goes nuts again!!! this time it flew right into the wall! Blades broken, gears stripped, tail rotor broken.

Anyways, I'm going to set it up with my 9c soon, I hope this will help to alleviate the problem. I love this little thing, although it's attitude could use some adjusting

Umm, why not try turning it on with the motor disconnected and see what happens?

I lost my infamous tag line.

because there is no problem when turning the heli on, besides, the ESC will not arm right as it's turned on. The heli glitches during take off, and post flight.

...and that is why..

Test mode

Unplug the motors and run the heli through initialization (0 stick, 0 trim) to get a green light, then run the sticks through all their paces.

This will allow you to isolate the source of the glitch, somewhat. If you find absolutely no glitching throught the test procedure, then you can be pretty sure your glitches are caused by RF interference from one or both of the motors.

Mine glitches after initialization but BEFORE the motors even start, and also during flight, etc. Harder to ID the source of the problem. In my case, I suspect the TX is faulty, so I will be getting a Futaba crystal so I can program my 8UHFS and use it. If this does not solve it, then I figure I have a bad 4in1, and will send the whole kit into Horizon for warranty service.

Try running your Blade through the test procedure outlined in the manual, and if you still find glitching, contact Horizon for warranty service.

Good flying
