Charging the lipo for another flight ...
looks pretty sweet! I am going to test mine out and most likely gift it to a friend of
mine who was thinking of getting into the hobby.

Built a little battery extension cable with those 'solder mod' parts I ordered for the Nano.

Now I can also use the 150mAh lipo that came with the Nano - it just fits on the Velcro.

I can also use the NanoTech 210s if I stand them up on their side and let them sit on an angle.

The canopy grommets have to be removed.

Not the best wires, and a little extra contact resistance, but it seems to work just fine.

BTW - The canopy is MUCH easier to put on and remove without those grommets.

Just got mine today. Charged the battery. Binded the transmitter to the heli annddddd....doesn’t work?

Servos function but main and tail motors do not spool. Green LED goes solid, blue led slow flashes (looks like that’s normal behavior). I tried everything I could so far and nothing is getting these motors turning. Thoughts anyone?

Remember to hold the rudder stick down and to the right to enable the motors. You have to do this until the blue led flash pattern changes. And you’ll have to do this every time you stop the motors for 5-10 sec or more...

It’s for safety in lieu of throttle hold.

Don't forget to hold down the tx power button for 2-3 seconds - both for power up and power down.

very quiet flyer.

Default Megas Micros ?

Anybody place and receive an order from them within the last two weeks?

Place order. Radio silence. Email what's up. Radio silence.
