Default 330 X is dipping

Guys,

All of a sudden I'm having issues with my Gaui 330Z. I've been flying it for the pass couple of years without a crash or any issues. Today I i just lifted off and it dipped to the from right. I tried it again and did the same thing. I changed the battery thing it might of being the problem, but the same thing happened.
Do any of you have any suggestions as to what it could be.

I'm using my DX 8 with a 2200 40 C battery.

I appreciate any suggestions and thank you..

Rick

Did you check the battery, ESC's and motor bearings? Are the ESC's at stock settings or at low cutoff?

If battery is EOL, the voltage will drop and one ESC will cutoff first -> dip
If you once entered program mode by mistake and one ESC's changed settings -> dip
If motor bearings are EOL, motors won't spin up (fast) enough -> dip

You can check settings of the ESC's with a stock Turnigy ESC programmer. Or listen to the beeps

I had one ESC that was getting very hot so i replaced it. The other ones are good. After the ESC replacement it started to work without the dipping, but now it wobbles a bit , I think the gyro might be hosed.
I'll keep trying to find the problem.
Thanks for your comments..
