Can anyone help as I am COMPLETELY BAFFLED by a problem I experienced today?!?!?!?!
Took the Trex 500 for a fly a few days ago and all was fine.
Went to fly today but when connecting the battery, the ESC would not arm - just a continuous beep-beep-beep-beep-beep (short beeps, short gap between beeps). It's the standard align ESC.
After much head scratching, I realised it was because the throttle/pitch trim was in the centre rather than all the way 'down'. This is odd because I did not change this! On further investigation, the swash type was set to 90 degrees, gyro was 0% and 100% and there were a few other oddities with the settings.
This was definitely not done by a human - it's only my wife and 3 year old who live with me and neither of them would have had any idea how to change these settings.
So I got everything back to how it should be (as far as I can remember), but now I've got an even stranger problem.... For my TREX 500, my DX6i is now mode 1?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
My mCPx flys absolutely fine with the same Tx - mode 2 as usual. But the 500 insists on being mode 1.
I've tried re-binding but no chanage.
I've tried using a new model memory slot and setting this up for the 500 but this still ends up being mode 1????
Viewing the 'monitor' screen shows the correct channels moving as you'd expect.
The fact that the Tx works fine with my mCPx but not the 500 seems to point to the heli as being at fault. However, seeing as a load of Tx settings changed on their own - this points to the Tx being at fault.
I'd better check what happens with the Blade 450 tomorrow if I get the chance.
Any ideas?? I'm really stuck on this one?? Maybe nano-bots have got into my Tx and Rx and are working together (obviously communicating with each other over 2.4GHz RF) to get me really confused.
Any help/advice very much appreciated!
