Radio Channel Mapping:
The channel mapping is critical for making your Hummingbird fly, some radios will have different mapping (ex: Taranis X9D is A.E.T.R., while Taranis QX7 is T.A.E.R. even though they are both FrSky Protocol) Depending on which Protocol your hummingbird has been flashed with, you will need to change the order on your radio as this is not editable on the hummingbird firmware. See the list below for proper channel mapping:
- FrSky/Futaba Radios - A.E.T.R. (Aileron - Elevator - Throttle - Rudder)

If you've seen Kurtis C.'s review you know the story. Quad drifts very quickly in multiple directions out of the box. Basically unflyable. Customer support is useless. I sent mine back to NBD for repairs and they told me it was too damaged to repair and offered me $7 for it. It was only damaged because it was faulty out of the box. Complained to them for 3 months and then just when I gave up all hope of getting my drone that I purchased back, I get an email saying they fixed it and are sending it back. Now I have it and it flies great but still silverware is not worth the hassle over betaflight and I shouldn't have had to suffer through all of that. Just buy a better quad to begin wit.
This quad never flew right. It drifts hard forward and to the right in all modes. Support was not helpful and strung me along for 2 months before just ignoring me completely. Their "advice" included asking me to confirm my stick values via the OSD multiple times, telling me how to reset the accelerometer multiple times, and attempting to give me a replacement set of brushless motors for a quad with brushed motors. They ended up sending me a set of gold replacement motors for a drone that comes with plaid motors stock- and I had to use a coupon code on a new order so that I ate the shipping cost, thanks for that, I guess. This is just one of three quads I have bought from newbeedrone, not to mention every battery/charger I own came from them, and I got my TX16S from them as well. I guess I'm lucky that the more expensive stuff is working ok and I know to buy from other companies when I upgrade to digital because you are SOL if anything is wrong with what they sell you. So much for "NewBeeDrone provides the best customer service in this industry."
I want ot get started and i choose this drone, but i didn't check if it's available :( Now i don't know what to do. When will it be in stock again?
Drags backwards and motor gets extremely hot after 10-15s. Also gyro seems to be screwed up
