Title: Queries on Wizard, Tiny 7
Post by: Stactix on August 11, 2017, 15:14:06
Hello all,
Just a few questions on issues that I';ve encountered, hopefully not too obvious.

Recently brought the wizard and finally had my maiden flight yesterday (Just LOS Angle mode but it was incredible), stock bar a mushroom Antenna. Have a Swift 2 / LED vtx to put in at some point.
Got through 3 batteries without any issues 1 3s 2 4s, on my last 4s battery one of the props came loose so had a guided crash landing with the wizard ending up upside down. After that one of the motors stopped, so I';ve now replaced an ESC with a racestar v1 20a, updated the software, calibrated but the motor gradually picks up speed up to full throttle with minimum throttle input(It did this before i flashed) . I';ve read around and I';ve seen a couple of comments on these ESC';s on banggood about replacing all 4 if you use V1';s as the stock Wizards are now the V2 version.
I didn';t do the reciever setup with the new ESC, is this required for each new ESC? & I';ve only done the betaflight calibration.
Is there a way around this? I have ordered 3 v2s although I';m not to sure how well 4S works with my stock setup seeing how easily 1 ESC blew, I felt I was quite gentle with the throttle and never really tried testing it';s full capabilities. Is it worth canceling this order and ordering a full set of better ESCs? Or can I made do with what I have + the 3 on order from the time being?

Secondly, I';m not currently using my VTX / camera due to me being a muppet and buying the EV800D without properly checking if it was compatible with a glasses user, would it be worth unplugging the vtx for the time being?
I';m tempted to get some fatsharks and some lenses to put in, I';m pretty shortsighted so not sure if this would work. Any suggestions?


Tiny 7

I also recently brought this but haven';t been able to fly it
 I couldn';t get it to bind although I believe I may of actually bound it on the first try -.- I didn';t realise at the time, that when it';s bound it won';t appear on the transmitter like the Wizard, is this correct?
Second issue I had was that it wouldn';t connect to betaflight, I flashed it to the latest version although had to put some pressure on the port to get it to connect to betaflight. That led to two more issues, one the USB port fell off, two the tiny7 decided it would arm itself on battery insert.
Which was fine at first as it was just normal arm speed.. that unfortunately didn';t last long.. it eventually decided to up the ante and try and chop my fingers off by taking off on battery input although it did keep flipping over. All of this without the transmitter being on.
I';ve now got a replacement on the way, could someone please advise me so I don';t create a second tiny whoop death machine. :P


If anyone has any ideas thankyou!
My first post, reads like a meltdown!
