I've recently converted a X50 to FBL with a beastx and have flown it a couple of times. Today when I went to the field and was about to start the heli, I noticed the swash was tilted I then shut the unit and switched it on and again the swash was tilted. Checked the servos, linkages etc and they seem fine. Anybody have this happen before?

No I haven't had that problem...but I occasionally find that "after" the Beast X goes through its start up, nothing works. I watch the led’s run through a-g, then h-n. I see the swatch plate move back and forth, then nothing, no control. So I turn the power off and back on, then it works fine.

This doesn't happen all the time, every once in awhile. I have two Beast X units. One on my Compass 3D+ and Protos 500. They both do this.

I have had servo horns slip a notch or 2 on the splines, worth checking?

60% of the time, it works every time!

What receiver setup?
I have issues with my AR8000 receivers linking to my DSMX 12x on first cycle. Need to make sure I power cycle TX and then the receiver will connect.

I've noticed something similar with my 3GX and DX8 now that you spelled it out. I've chalked it up to me going to quick powering everything up so I shut everything down and try it again - always links back up the 2nd time. I'll have to pay more attention if this happens again.

Guys it turned out to be the spline of the servo horn like Richardmid1 suggested. I thought perhaps I'll have to get a new beastx but thankfully I didn't need to. Thank u all for ur help
