Default X-cell 30???

Received what I believe is an Xcell 30. I'd like ot get it running but have a lot to learn about this heli. Everything looks good but the throttle does not move. Maybe froze up but it does not look like it moves. It has a servo tied to it so it must move right? I have experience but all the blade SR. Also, how do I match up RX and TX? Should I purchase a new set.

Any information on this heli would be greatly appreciated.

disconnect the throttle linkage from the carb. Will the carb work with the linkage disconnected.

if not you need to remove the engine and then the carb from the engine. Soak the carb in some alcohol that should free it up.

We had a great country once. You know what made it great? “I can.” Then the weak came along, “the I cant’s” and destroyed it.

Rons Heli Pros south is your best bet for Min-Air parts. Tear it down and check all bearings, the X-cell 30 is still a good machine when setup properly.
