Default High maintenance craft

I started this thread excited about this plane. It's proven to be a pain in the XXX. For starters, it's a battery hog and behaves badly on low battery voltage. I get MAX 5 mins., not the 6 in the manual, with a HK Zippy 2200, 45C. And if the battery starts failing in flight, look out.

The latest is it won't fully initialize. I get the dreaded blinking blue light on the controller board, but also get nacelle motion (down then up) but no rotation with throttle. Also no response to "rudder" inputs.

Anyone have an idea what's going on? This started very suddenly (no impacts), so maybe board failure. Ugh!

P.S. HH help desk suggested re-binding the RX. That didn't work.
