I just set-up another 3G system. This make three and I don't remember this happening on the previous ones. When I turn power on the swashplate will tilt back and after the light sequence it will snap back to level and jump three times. Everything seems to be normal other than the tilt when I initially turn power on. Any body have this? Thanks,
Bob

Sounds like when you initially bound it , one servo was reversed. After making corrections to reverse the servo , you can rebind and the swash tilt should go away.

Re-binding was the trick. Thanks for the help

Well,

I guess I spoke too soon. The problem is back. I changed out receivers and still have the same issue. Any thoughts?

Is their any way to reset the entire system...like a factory reset in the 3G computer programing?

Yes, I have down graded to version 2.0 and upgraded again. Started over with set-up a few times. I'm thinking It's something with the Unit. I changed it out with a known good one and everything works perfect. Sucks, this thing hasn’t even been in the air yet.

Do you think the Align 3G mod would help at all?

Did you change out the whole unit or just the sensor or the control box?

Mine does this every once in awhile. I just turn it off and on again, then all is good.

My 3G will do that occasionally....power the rx, the swash tilts, then levels, then jumps 3 times. I thought the 3G was trying to initialize before the rx. As long as my swash is level before it does the 3 jumps I fly it....never had a problem with it and didn't know something was wrong with it.

Mine does the same thing once in a while. As long as its level prior to the 3 pumps, shes fine. I always tilt the heli in all axis and make sure the swash is doing what its suppose to, and it does.

Been flying my 3G 500 1-3 times a week for over 6mo now and shes a champ! Still on original V1.2. I figure, if it ain't broke, don't fix it!
