Smoked my Hummingbird

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Well, It finally came in the mail (used but in excellent condition). I just couldn't wait to try it out. It was starting to spit rain but I scoffed at it and flew my bird anyway. I have a feeling a drop of rain hit the mixer board and poof it went

I have no power at all. I was worried about flying as it has a 3C 700mah Lipo. Does anyone know where to get a replacement board cheap? I was also thinking of upgrading with 2 ESC and doing without the mixer board but I am not sure if the radio I have can do the mixing required. It is a Hitec Flash 5. It has V-Tail, Elevon and Aileron-Elevator mixes preset and has Camber adjustment and is flapperon capable.

Can someone shed a little light on this so my bird can fly again?

thank you

I tried flying electric but the cord kept coming unplugged!

hummingbird suggestions

My recommendation on this is just what I did with my hummingbird

Grab a Himax 2015-4100 with a CC10, DD tail and a ISC100 or Pixie 7 and make sure your radio has revo mixing or you have a HH gyro.

This brushless combo is great for this heli and man does it fly great. Mine got me from basic hovering to fast forward flight and some minor tricks on a fixed pitch heli.

Good Luck and you PM me if you have any other questions.
