Question
sorry stupid question, but i don't really understand rates and how they are used
are rates used to limit the power to a switch. so id i use a rate of 100 to 40 on one of my switches i can limit the throttle to max out at 40 if i flip the switch. i think this would be the same for rudder and others. am i right?

Question
Blade 350QX Binding
First off... I love you guys! I have so many of your aircraft and you always seem to one-up yourselves and make me buy more! Now that you are all buttered up, here's the question: My Blade 350QX, I have to bind on almost every flight. Occasionally, it will bind on powerup, just like all of my Parkzone BNF planes, but most times, I have to hold the trainer button on my DX6i and cycle the power to get it to re-bind. Adds a lot of time every time I switch batteries. Can I fix this somehow? is it possibly a problem with trim out of center or something silly like that? Thanks so much for all you guys do. Awesome company!

Question
How do I switch to low rate on the DX6i when using it with the 350 QX?
Also, how do I change the rudder rate in d/r expo? I want to make it rotate slower, but when I change the setting, the motors will not start.

Thanks for any help!

The motors will not start until the rate switch is in the high position. You switch to low rates by flipping the switch you assigned for dual rates. You need to lower the low rudder dual rate setting down until it pirouettes at the speed you prefer.

If you are talking 350QX, the answer is no, in the manual it states the input for the charger should be 10.5 - 15 volts.

answer 2
350qx's purchased within the last few weeks should have the new "b" props and do not require replacing. you can verify the prop version by looking at the prop top hub center. new props should have a "b" molded into to hub. if not "b" props horizon has a replacement prop request form that requires submitting to horizon support.

Question
GPS is off mark

Most GPS receivers are only accurate to about 3 meters and those are usually the higher end very expensive ones. 1 to 2 feet is very good and if you expect it to land exactly where it took off from, you will be disappointed. You could also try calibrate the accelerometer, that is suppose to help if the 350 QX has a hard time finding the home position.

the "rth" function will not return the vehicle to the exact precise location of take-off. a "rth" landing within 1 - 2 feet of take-off location is expected and quite acceptable...

yes. I used the youtube video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V4ijx-UYj60. I would advise to make the throttle cut up on the right (G) like you would find in a collective pitch heli. Be sure to be familiar with your switches before your first flight so you don't inadvertently shut your 350 down while flying.

Good Luck!

At 4000 FT ASL VS Sea Level the air is definitively thinner...if you were in charge of flying a 747 with 300 people on board.... short runway and hot temperatures.... Full tanks of fuel....
VERY IMPORTANT !!! .....

Flying a NANO QX ???.... NO PROBLEM !!!

This quad can be very basic or can be full tilt stunt quad. In flight mode 1 a beginner could learn to fly it no problem. As your skills progress you can step up to the next level of flying. Follow the directions completely and you will have alot of fun with this quad. The size of batteries it uses are even a great size for the beginner level.
