I went to fly my 700e today and noticed the swash was off before takeoff. After a few checks I found the swash in the model was switched from H1 to 120 ccp BY ITSELF since my last flight. This was in model 4 and all I did was add a model to 6 (carbon z yak plane) This should not affect other models but somehow it did. And just to add, this radio has the latest update. The other issue I noticed is that with the new lipo battery the charge doesnt end as stated it would in the instructions. If anyone had a similar situation or solution please let me know, Even though I love this radio, I'm ready to bail on this thing. thanks Al

The radio charges at 200 mA max. It could take close to a full day to reach sufficient charge to shut off the light, especially with a new LiPo as they need a few cycles to reach max voltage when charged. Keep us posted on the swash issue, first time I have heard this.

I let it charge for over 2 days and it won't pas 8.2 volts. I believe the lipo 4000 pack has a charge cutoff circut and is not allowing the radio to get to 8.4

Lipos don't take two days to charge, thats why I thought it was a nimh.

LiPo' don't charge any faster than any other battery when the max charge current is 200mA. If it is brand new, suggest you use the radio for a while then recharge. Most liPo charges charge at 1C or more, the DX-8 charger charges as .05C at it's highest charge rate.
