Default BLADE MCPX No POWER!!!! NEED HELP !!!!

I have my mcpx and I completely lost vertical thrust. I tried increasing pitch, a new 3in1, new motors (tail and main), new main gear, I don't know what I could've done or what happened to do this. I checked all mechanical components. Nothing is bent or broken. I feels like after about 10 seconds in the air the battery is starting to die. Full stick just to hover. I thought it was the batteries first so I got a batch of new ones. All different brands and no change. What do I do now? Could it be one of the servos?????? Please help me I don't know where else to turn to. Thanks!!!!

I doubt its a servo, but could be your radio settings as getting positive pitch requires the movement of all 3 cyclic servos...not just one.

I would check the programming of your radio if you are using a DX6i or higher. If you are using the stock transmitter...I dont know what to tell you as I have never flown my mcpx on the stock DX4e. But maybe a switch is in the wrong position...like Hi-Lo rates?

Someone with more info may chime in to offer more suggestions IF you are using the stock DX4e.

I am using a dx6i. I thought that might have been it too. I checked the settings 4 or 5 times. But thanks for the suggestion.

Make sure that the main gear is engaged properly and it's not slipping.
