Hi Guys,

Last weekend I was adjusting my Rex 700 with SK360 Setup and because if I was not really centered in what I was doing I forgot to switch back to flightmode and didnt checked the green light.

Started my heli and flow a complete tank until I noticeds it was out of center, it pulled everytime to the right and heli was really agile.

Didnt do any strange movements or what so ever. I was quite amazed and its a good feeling that, if you mistake, nothing bad happends to the heli.

Did this happend before to some one? If yes, what where your experiences??

Regards, Dave

I did the same thing a few weeks back.

Hover wasn't hands off as it tended to drift and it really wanted to pitch up in FFF. But none the less it was totally flyable and yes..very snappy.

I did it once, it seemed pretty stable in hover, but the roll rate was insane!! I landed very shortly after that....

Thanks Guys.

It's good to know if it ever happens it might not be total disaster.

Yes, very interesting. I'm religious about confirming the solid green LED but it's great to know that flying in setup mode is not necessarily instant doom.

I just wish that Skookum would modify the SK360 so connecting the USB cable would switch it to setup mode, and remove the cable would switch it back to flight mode.

So much more safe and should easily be done in software.

Did it with my 450... lifted off and landed twice trying to figure out what was what, then thought, "Gee, might be better in forward flight"... well, no, it wasn't. Crashed it pretty good. Wasn't until a couple days later I realized I had left it in setup mode. Maybe a bigger heli would be flyable in setup mode, but my little 450 sure wasn't. Hoverable, maybe, but not flyable.
