buddy of mine had that issue. 6 times. then he flew it again flybared, and it went full negative into the ground. 600E (thats now mine after he sold it to me cuz he didn't wanna fix anymore) so i think personaly that the 3GX is doing something to the reciever because the heli did almost the same thing just without the 3GX. i hope that once i get it flying it doesn't do that. I'd just suggest not flying the 3GX until align takes care of this issue (they prolly will, it's very unsafe having your heli land at your feet) then they'll put out some new thing or what not. THEN fly it. thats my opinion. or get a beast X!

Is 3GX better than the Microbeast?

I have had my 3gx reset on me on 2 different occasion and both times i caught it before i flew it and the cause for both times was when i mistakenly turned the transmitter off before switching my receiver off. On both occasions my 3gx reset on me it has never reset in flight. i use it on a 450 so i dont have a separate rx batt works off the esc bec. I dont use a separate receiver i use 1 dsmx sat. Still using the 3gx and am rather content with it. not sure if my resets are a glitch or a problem caused by yours truly.
