Estes Proto X
My girlfriend gave me an Estes Proto X for an early Christmas gift. It's a fun little mini quadcopter, although very hard to hold at a certain height, and a little twitchy. I am unsure of what the clicking of the transmitters left and right stick do, however, as the directions do not say. Does anyone have any ideas about this little guy?

left stick is throttle and rudder (rotate left and right) right stick moves forwards and back and then strafes right. it can be a pain to trim in and even thrust heater vent flow makes it hard to control at times, weighing only .4 oz. my dad picked one up, they are fun. the props bend and end up out of balance easily.

Well it has trim buttons for left and right and side to side, but also the right and left stick click if you push them. I can't find the model on estes site, on the dart, which seems an improvement over this model, at least in terms of the controller.

Also, does anyone know where to get 1s 100-100mah lipos with a cable and mini jst connector?

Got one as a stocking stuffer. It never flies the sme way twice. I don't believe it ever remembers it trim settings. To reset the gyro left stick bottom right and wiggle the right stick to the lights blink. Already lost one of the blades they don't stay on to well.
Fun to chase the cats with

That's odd, I haven't had any issues with the trim except during a tumble down the stairs with it. Just reset it. I can't figure out what clicking the left and right stick do. A video stated its for high and low rates, but the guy didnt notice a difference
