  I hope that someone here can help me. I have owned 3 Syma X-6 quads. Not days after I received the first one, it got stuck high in a tree and I had to wait for a storm to knock it down. And soon enough a strom blew thru and knock it down it did, however someone else must have seen it first on the ground so it wasn't recovered by me anyway. Undaunted, I bought another one and happily flew it 3 or 4 times a week for a couple of months totally enjoying learning to fly. Unfortunately, one day it came up lame. All the props spun but 2 spun the wrong way now and it would just immediately flip over, instead of flying. Since all the rotors spun I figured it was the motherboard that had lost it's mind and ordered a new circuit card. Somehow I never found the time for this delicate surgery and when I noticed the X6 was still on sale I ordered my 3rd. I should have tried it the day I got it because this one doesn't work either and it's too late to send it back.

  Basically it doesn't respond to the controller and I tried all three. Here's the most obvious thing I see right away. When I power up the drone itself, the front underneath beacon pulses fast but the rear doesn't pulse at all. On my other two the rear pulsed as well, albeit much slower. Something tells me that this proves the tiny brain in the circuitry is not initializing.

  So my question is, do I need to change the motherboard on this one as well or is there some kind of calibration to try first?

 

Thanks for any help.

crigon_04 Hi X6Pilot,

Thanks for posting. I believe there are two types of receiver boards for the X6 ,blueV1 or Green V3 old board from memory is V3.You might need to get a new transmitter for the V5 board. This is say the blue one Here

I think if you change mother boards to new latest card the remote will not bind with her. You could try to do a calibration same as for the X5C, not sure if will work or not, video below. So to sum up board not binding with remote as different frequencies, but to be honest not 100% sure.Which company did you buy from? Keep us posted.Sorry but my X6 ended up flying into the sea, so do not have one to open up to view parts.Will do more research for you.SF

  Thanks Syma Freak! Although my new one, #3, still doesn't work, the calibration procedure worked on #2, which is the original reason I bought #3. So now I have something to fly again! Super. Thanks again.

Hi X6,

   Sorry for the delay in a personal greeting. Welcome to the forum! I don't have much

experience with quads but am glad to hear that you at least have one airborn. I have the 

X5C and the S6 almost a year now and still am learning the flight characteristics of quads.

   Thank you, again, for your interest in our forum and I hope you will please keep us all posted!

I've own a X6 and had a second that I passed on to my brother a couple of years ago and it's still flying for him. They have used several boards in these and now I see different LED lights as well. Both of the ones I've bought only flash the front LED's with the rears staying on constant once they are bound to the transmitter. The transmitter protocols on them are different. The transmitter to the one my brother now has will only bind to it and the X7. Transmitter LED is Yellow/Amber and the board in it is Red. The newer one I have has a blue Board and the transmitter for it will bind to almost every Quad Syma is making right now that I own including the X5 all versions X8 X11 X12 and X13. I miss the one I gave away. It was nice having a standard size transmitter to fly the X7. Now I'm stuck with the PlayStation styled transmitter to fly it. Not a big deal. The X7 doesn't get much use anyways but I fly the X6 allot. 

 

Want a good X6 Battery that fits well. GoolRC 1200mah fits almost perfect. A strip of electrical tape around it once all but locks it into the X6 and it won't slide out even doing repeated flips.

 

I've moded mine and cut off the blade guard's completely. Flies so much better without the extra drag. Those blade guard's catch allot of air on the X6.
