Did my first sucessful flip today

The secret that someone else pointed out to me is start at least 20' high in a dead hover. It'll drop far but recover. I found that full throttle trying to recover doesn't work as well as 'normal climb power'. My mQX hates full throttle. I'm guessing it's because some motors are not as strong as the others.

If you have a "real" radio transmitter, set the elevator and aileron end point to 150% (maximum).

If your mQX is set for "X" configuration, when you go to flip it, push the stick into the corner (45 degree, maximum roll and elevator), it will just about flip on it's own axis with almost no loss of height.

so it'll flip faster in the T config? I'll have to try that. Using the DX8, I'll have to crank up the EPA's

I think I may have a weaker motor on one or two of the legs. When I hit full throttle it pulls really hard to one side then the gyro goes nuts trying to compensate. This would be a good application to test the motors and get some matching ones, if I wanted to put that much time into this (which I don't)
