I have managed to take my bag'o parts and successfully assemble and calibrate it, but ran into one little strange thing. This is a 3D quad with a new Spektrum DX7 (ordered with the kit) controlling. When I was doing the ESC calibration the last step where you try to arm the motors from the sticks I couldn't get it to arm. I moved and held the left stick to the right and then tried the right stick to the right and nothing happened. In previous stage the motors were working fine but after its fully calibrated I couldn't arm them. I went through this about 3 times. This came up again when I was testing motor direction so I just did it from the setup menu which worked great.
I admit that not being an experienced R/C person the phrase "right rudder" doesn't really translate to "move (right/left) stick to the (right/left) so I have no idea if its just pilot error on my part or I have an issue in configuration.
I have the same trouble translating the mode switch. During calibration it seems to be working but I have no idea what Mode 0 / Model 1 / Mode 2 on the controller translate to as far as flight mode.
Need some tutoring from you experienced pilots...
I did mean on the transmitter, but you've managed to sort it now yourself, I must have picked the instructions for an older version of the DX7.
Ive been reading this forum for some time now. Ive seen many of you read past this almost every time. I just want to make the comment below.
Spektrum makes a DX6i & a DX7 and I hope your sitting down..... THEY ARE NOT THE SAME RADIO and the diagrams and inside components are in different spots.
Hold left a while to arm
I feel better now.
