Reply with quote

What's up y'all? I walked into the hobby shop today to look at some helis i've been researching for a while now.. I walked out with a CX2 RTF and a 120SR BNF.
The LP5DSM works great, I have no issue with the binding process at all for either of them, went back and forth a few times already...

The problem is when its binded to the 120 SR the elevator stick is functioning backwards ie. push up on the stick to go backwards and down on the stick to go forward...

DOES ANYONE KNOW WHICH DIP SWITCH I HAVE TO FLIP TO GET THE ELEVATOR TO WORK PROPERLY..??

for the 120SR on the LP5DSM all the dip switches are in the down position except for 8

Right on bro, have a blast with 'em! Very Happy

After you've gotten in a fair amount of time with them, let us know what you think!

Hey Nick.... Got in a little flight time with both last night... CX2 is fun and easy.. Just need to get used to having the rudder on the left stick... I like it a lot though... The 120SR is a bit twitchy, little harder to fly.. After the batteries are charged I'm going back outside with it... Really gotta get the hang of the 120 but it seems solid... I crashed it a few times yesterday and it keeps on going..

Good to hear! Very Happy

The 120 SR is a little harder to fly because its so much more capable than co-axial helis. That slight instability you notice will translate into agility as your skill increases.

I do recommend one small mod if you have a Dremel or a hand file around. Look at where the left strut attaches to the frame towards the rear. It comes perilously close to the exposed servo gear; in a crash or even just a hard landing, the frame can flex and damage it.

The fix is just to pull out the left skid and grind down that rear peg a little. Use a Dremel if possible because there's actually a metal rod embedded in the plastic, just don't take off too much or the skid won't hold in the frame as well.

Just a suggestion. Anyway, keep it up man!
