OK Andrew, explain my Nano CPX then! lol.

Actually you can blame it all on me. I had one of those Sadim touch weekends.

It will all come clear I am sure. DoodooDoodoo.

Well,

I think I will just let the experienced help me.....
I cannot get the silly thing to blink 3 times at all ..
Maybe a hammer will fix it...
Or bury it in Bills cemetary....and let it come back from the other side.
Or maybe it already has....it did go from Bridgewater, to Missisauga, to me....thanks to Canada Post efficiency :lol:

Paul,

Make sure as well that your rates are set to 100% (and active) when you complete the steps on page 6. I could certainly be wrong, but I expect that the receiver in the plane would be looking for values above a threshold and those might not be reached at low rates.....

We'll get you going....

Holy Crap, did I hear you guys say "you were flying too fast..!".....I gotta love that.

Later Edit: This thread will do a lot to help future owners of AS3X programmable micro fliers....good job on starting this thread Paul, and excellent posting by all..!

THAT WAS IT!!
I had all at low rates, 70% , as per manuals suggestion,
Never dawned on me to put to full rates for that process of changing modes.
And oddly ... My F mode is reversed by the look of it...in 0, elevator is all over the place.
At 1 , barely moves!
Checked for reverse, on channel 5, but it's not.
Go figure.
I sincerely thank you Brian!

However.....
Now you took away all my excuses for crashing : :lol:

After another reset, verifying all my settings again, I still get a wag that is more pronounced in knife edge and more so when I input rudder. Fast or slow, the wag is definitely there......but.....it is manageable and it flies well otherwise. Im in default mode 0 and i have correct rates. I truly wish i could turn it off. Ive been experimenting with stick positions to see if it can be disabled but nothing yet.I need a bigger garage...lol

BTW: I'm using the nanotech batteries and they really seem to be getting better the more they are used.

Well Brian and Louis planes were flying much better!
Mine as well...but my lack of skill with 3d planes is still an issue.
Tough plane though for as many times as I smacked it into something!
I am not used to a plane the continues to fly in whatever odd orientation I place it in :lol:
Need more practice for sure...but it's a great plane!
