This!!
Flies like a dream. I took a punt on one and fell in love with that pack - okay, I've been strapping BRICKS to my quad for the last 5 years, so it's GONNA be a big difference. There's a link to the amazon page in the description. They're only 40c but pack enough punch for me for the timebeing.

I have to be a bit more careful with the fly time though, 'cos I'm used to getting 10-15 mins out of a pack  :o

Looks good. Well done on first rolls. One thing that might be worth looking at is 2 straps on the battery. With one it looks like the battery could slip into props and get chopped up!!!!

I have 2 Floureon 3S 3300mAh that I use on my F450 and find them good but it's no racer.

I just added a rubber mat to the frame and flipped the pack on its side. It's a MUCH firmer mounting now and better access for the main power wires.
BUT; they do ship with a batter strap so I've got plenty now so might have a go at double-strapping....  :whistling:

New set of props for the AQ 600 folding quad, these are 1355 T-series, shown with a 10x4.5 slowfly for scale
I am running 1155 T props at present and want to see if the motors can handle these with out getting warm, hoping they will work well and give me a tiny bit more lift/flight time

I find it rather funny that i built the AQ600 just because i could, and had the big sunnysky 700kv motors, and now i just love flying it, got it gimbled up with a tiny mobius gimble and getting decent video from it, getting 16 mins flight time from 5200ham 4s, hoping to push it to 18 mins  :cool:

good image hosting


figured Id give one of these a go, might be beneficial on some of my smaller builds that have limited space for clutter...

tbh Im not 100% sure how its gonna work, If it was set for use with a specific cell count (2s-3s-4s etc) then Itd just measure the overall voltage and average it between cells to decide when to go off but according to the listing its for use with 2-6s...... but......... there seems to be no way of telling it what cell count your using? or for that matter what cell count it comes set on?? hmmmm a little confusing

I assume for example that if on connection it sees voltage between 13 and say 17 it will consider it 4S and will start measuring down to whatever minimum voltage per cell is set times the number of cells?

thats sorta what Im assuming, but then you'd have to be sure of the quality and charge state of any battery you plug in if you expect it to function as it should, otherwise I expect it could get pretty confused pretty feckin quickly.

Did test it with my two newest multistars (1800mah 3s, 1800mah 4s) with the alarm set to 3.7v (its highest setting) and alongside a standard balance plug lipo alarm and they both went off pretty much the same time on both the 3s and 4s so its doing something right to figure out what cell count/full charge status its connected too and when to trigger.

either way it works like it should on 3s and 4s so I cant complain....bloody 5050smd LED if properly BRIGHT too.
