Default Problem with Axe CP - no throttle

When I move the throttle on the remote I have to push the throttle about half way before the rotors start to turn. When I give it full throttle the heli will slowly start to take off then slowly settle back down. Doe anyone have any ideas as to what might be wrong?

I hope to be able to fix this. I just got the heli back from the manufacturer. Ive had to send it in twice already for warranty work.. Bad electronics board both times. And Ive only owned the thing for 2 months!!
(not including the 3 months the manufacturer kept it for repairs) Are all helis this unreliable?

I appreciate any help. I am new to this and Ive been very frustrated with this heli.

Well, I thought I found the problem. I put carbon fiber rotors on it and even took it to the hobby shop. They didnt know what was wrong with it either. Im now selling it on ebay.

Ah! So that's why my used heli was trashed and didn't work right, oh well, I'm getting a partial refund. Nothing bad ment. I would probably do the same thing
