Eachine Wizard X220 FPV Racing Drone Blheli_S F3 6DOF 2205 2300KV Motors 5.8G 48CH 200MW VTX ARF

This is the drone I bought from Banggood and it did not come with a Controller, big mistake on my part, as I am now trying to find a controller and receiver that will work with the Quad itself.

As you can see, it came with a F3 6DOF flight controller, which I have no experience with. If I need to buy a whole new Receiver/Controller combo, no problem, just point me in the correct direction. On opening the Wizard shell, I did not find a Receiver with antenna wires coming from it. So until I can find a controller and receiver that will work, the Wizard is shop table bound. thank for any help or suggestions.
You can use basically any receiver/controller with a 6d0f. It supports s.bus, ppm, pwm, etc... I use a Radiolink AT9S with mine and am very pleased.

Your Radiolink AT9S still requires a receiver inside your drone, do you know what receiver your using? Have you taken your drone apart or did you buy it as a Ready To Fly unit? Thanks for getting back with me on this.

My controller came with an R9DS receiver, which is what I am still using. You also might consider the AT9 (non-S) which is similar but without FHSS (freq hopping spread spectrum). If you need a smaller receiver you can get an R6DS or even smaller R6DSM for $20. But there are some inexpensive controller/receiver combos from different brands too like FlySky and Spektrum, etc. I built mine myself on a 230mm Alien frame and the relatively large R9DS fits just fine.

Don't mess with the PIDs yet (especially if you haven't saved a backup of the FC settings yet). Start by lowering your rates by about 30% or 50% and see how that goes. Also, you probably want a bit of an exponent curve to your throttle if it doesn't already.

Yeah, just lower the rates. I think I have mine at .45 or something. But I fly Rate mode only and haven't messed with airmode yet because I'm not doing any stalls yet. Maybe soon though xD
