So, battery is charged, turn on transmitter, drop left stick all the way down, confirm dips are all centered, plug in battery, 4-1 blinks once and then stays solid red. Moment of truth...servos are moving on second prop, but main blades and tail gets nothing. What gives? Not sure where to go from here.

4in1 will go green when ready to fly. Make sure your throttle trim in down.

Yes, make sure throttle trim is all the way down as well as throttle stick all the way down. Also not a bad idea to have all other trims at center since thie is first flight. And be sure not to move heli until light is solid green.

The forum strikes again!! I had the stick down but the tab was centered. I assume thats why the 4-1 wasnt giving me the green light. I put both the left stick and tab all the way down, connected the battery, and PRESTO! I was good to go.

Thanks forum! orange74
