Default nano problems

I have just bought a Nano CPX. I have flown other micro helis, the cheap ones and wanted something more . This heli is uncontrollable. Cant trim it out and is uncontrollable. took it back to store and the Heli guy couldnt fly it , asked for new chopper and they said they would trouble shoot it , and I got a new dx4 radio . No help. What am I doing wrong? Thanks Travis F

Thumbs up Many Thanks

Hi all, newb here as well, not viewed the videos as yet, but wanted to convey my thanks to those who are responsible for this site, and the videos for '101' as i understand how much time and energy is required firstly to video the subjects, but then the work (for the best part unseen) for post production ready to post process....this takes time.

New here but also on Aus, sister? site (ArcHeli) am i allowed that? lol. Great entry into hobby with TONNES of feedback from experienced pilots...I THANK YOU ONE AND ALL

Default esc's

Looking at the YGE 160HV ESC (and others!), and for the life of me, can't figure out if it has an integrated BEC; can anyone help me understand how to fiind that out - it's certainly not listed in the specs. THANKS !

Thank you so VERY much for compiling all of this information!

I am brand new (after a 7 year hiatus) at RC Helis and this information is simply wonderful!

Thank you again for allowing me to be a participant and I look forward to sharing my experiences and learning from the experts here!

Default Master CP servo problem

The elevator servo will go up and the pitch and aileron servos go down. I replaced sock servos with aftermarket servos. DEVO7, rx6237h-d.
