Default man this sucks!!!!!

so i bought my 450x about 5 days ago and it wouldnt bind.... took it to a local hobby shop they couldnt get it... so HH sent me another receiver... so i just got off the phone with my LHS and they said that that receiver didnt work also... so now i have to send in the whole helicopter.... this sucks so bad... i think they need to do something for me for all this i have to put up with... i spent almost 500 bucks for this damn thing and i have to do all this... its just not right..... i should of save a few more bucks and got the trex 450 v2 3gx... and i would be good...

so i guess wish me luck!!!!

Honestly these new blades are awesome you will like it once they fix it. Hey at least they have a customer support unlike align ...

Call them and make a good complaint. You can't go wrong with Horizons tech support they should do something for you.

Also 3GX is crap compared to Beast X. HH always makes things right, If a component was broken in an Align kit you'd be out of luck. I find it strange that the 2nd $240 BX unit is also broken. Almost as if your lhs is trying to pull one over on you and keep the BX unit.

Our local welding supply store, before they changed hands, had a guy hiding entire oxy/accyt set up in the back room. Along with $4-500 welding hoods..

I hope you realize that the 3GX is a really good system (I've spent some time now getting my bx to feel more like the 3GX), yes it also has its quirks but this wasn't a thread to be bashing one system over another. Back on topic, what transmitter were you using? Was it a dx6i by chance. Lots of people locally have had initial binding issues with the 7200BX, the LHS isn't going to try to keep a unit or it would be a direct loss for them.

The chance that two AR7200BX units won't bind is just about zero.

There is something else wrong.

That's what's so strange to me. The BX unit should be able to bind regardless of anything else. The only other thing that could be the problem is the tx and they must have tried more than one at the lhs.

Never assume. I would ask the LHS if they have tried an in-house transmitter. If they don't have their own in-house transmitter then I would start wondering. The one here has half a dozen various ones just to prove something works or that a TX is bad.

The AR7200BX would not initialize if it gets faulty power from the ESC.

I'd check the soldering on the ESC plugs, and I'd try the AR7200BX in another heli or with another ESC.

2x AR7200BX faulty is VERY unlikely.

I suspect the ESC.

Why can't your lhs exchange the heli for a new one then they deal with hh themselves. You just bought the darn thing

Yeah, I would be more dissapointed with the LHS than Blade in this case.

Sorry your saying downgrade to a FLYBAR? are you NUTS! Get this man his medicine. Nobody flys with flybar's after they have experienced the awesomeness of a BeastX. Unless they like the challenge of course ;-)
