been there, use sticks to remove thrust k.Enter menu use left up/down to access mode the turn of fixid. Select the right mode as well then the devo7 should work again. There are devo7 videos on youtube.

In the Devo 7 that came with the F210, I replaced the alkaline batteries with a NiMH pack. I attempted to charge the pack via the charge port and now my Devo 7 will only turn on when the battery is disconnected and then reconnected and when the switch is turned off now shows Power Off on the LCD screen. I haven't tried to fly since making this change, any thoughts?

I replaced a thirsty alkaline pack with a 2S lipo, I charge with charge port on radio when it is switched on...worth a try

Chris thanks for responding. I took the back off the Devo and found a burned resister on the battery power in side of the board. I don't know what the resister was rated at, it was pretty burned, but I replaced it with a 1K resister but nothing changed! I still have to have the power switch on when plugging in the battery and when I turn switch off it still shows Power Off on the LCD screen. I have to unplug then replug the battery to get the whole mess going again. I hate when things don't work right. BTW, I think I burned the resister plugging in a 3S lipo.

Update, after further investigation I now believe I killed or damaged the transmitter charging circuit by connecting my high output charger to the Devo 7 charging port and attempting to charge at a high rate >50ma. Live and Learn!

Hello, I found the battery that i use to power my DEVO7 ... Walkera F12E JST multi-connector 2200MAH. Sounds like you may need to replace the DEVO7 $AUD119.It may have been fried by the battery that you used.
