Guys,

I'm rather inexperienced with the MiniV, but experienced a strange issue today. After a light bounce with my Logo 400 (absolutly no damage, none, just very windy) the MiniV felt as if the sensor lost it's ability to function like it should. I had flown 3 very "locked in" flights just prior.

I was still able to control the heli, but it was obviously acting funny, so I landed immediately. I decided to shut down and restart, but no change. She responded the same.

I didn't have a chance to try her again given an approaching storm, but is there some sort of waiting period or sensor reset I'm missing??

Thanks,
Raz

Make sure the sensor has not come loose!

The MiniV is stuck to the gyro plate as it should be. The bouce was really nothing, but confused the MiniV. Is there no, reset or waiting period to allow it to settle?

Thanks,
Raz

Double check that the heli is still grounding out static from the belt properly, especially with a storm coming and relative humidity going up it becomes even more of a chance. My friends 500 was flying fine for a long time and then all of a sudden started just freaking out every now and then while flying. Came to find out, his anti-static kit wasn't touching the boom and grounding it out after time. After he fixed it, the issue has not happened again.

Interesting!

I don't think it's grounding out static at all as I have no antistatic wire installed on my 400? Don't think it came eqipped with the kit? Can I simply run a wire myself? If so, any help on installation would be appreciated..

Static it is for sure and yes you can. It needs to go from the rear tail case, to the motor plate

Hey Ron,

I'll run a wire, thanks. However, I think it's a different problem. I've just noticed that board inside the miniV is loose!

Do I need to send her in for repair? This is worries me as the bounce was very light, I don't understand how the board can so easily break loose inside the case...

tiny bit of hot glue or shoo goo can fix it.

Thanks. I intend to open her up this week for repair. I'll likely use GOOP versus Hot Glue..

Thanks,
Raz

What did the log say? It will show checksum errors if static related, or sensor out of range. Both of which I am all too familiar with.

High Voltage just works better

My issue was a loose PC board. Basically, the board broke loose inside the case. It's rather disappointing that the board can break loose so easily, but it's an easy fix. I opended up the case and applied some GOOP on the guides the PC board sits in. I haven't had a chance to test fly her yet, but assume it's fine.

Its still a great learning oppertunity to check the log. You will see the increased vibs particularly with the crash and subsequent "hits" that you were getting. It will also give a baseline for further issues.
