  • My guess is that they're not selling the quad they were designed for any more and random older generation 16A "pin header" ESC's aren't on many peoples radar at the minute.

    I've got a Y6 idea waiting to be built and 16A per motor will be plenty for that...... So I got 12 of the little beggers. If they turn out to be unusable on that it was still less that the cost of a single 4 in one ESC, and I'm sure they'll get used eventually.

  • Their max signal speed is 500hz, (that means esc loop speed not higher than that) suggests not 32bit arm processors blheli are currently testing, nor the previous generation (busybee1 and 2 used for blheli_s) nor silabs f390s, the last gen of hardware for blheli before blheli_s, nor silabs f330, the generation before that, but at best the really old atmel chip set, suggesting these are three year old escs at best (three years ago we were starting to run 1khz on naze flight controllers, these escs won't work with that)
  • #2373 by shawdreamer on 20 Apr 2017
  • You do know they are not reduced by 80% because they are decent escs?

    aye but they'll be more than sufficient for putting new designs through test flights and I wont feel so bad about chucking a couple in the bin if they get trashed during testing "whoopsies" :laugh:

  • Was tempted with those ESCs but too many bad reviews for me.

  • Lumenier butter cutter props, look nice, arrived too late to test at lunch time, but fitted as you can see.
    Revs, initial observations without flying, I am very optimistic, clearly though they are not durable, remind me very much of origional hq5x4x3 with regards to durability, expect them to bend and break on crashes and be replacing a lot but if they fly right that's fine with me

  • #2377 by ched999uk on 20 Apr 2017
  • Just a 5v UBEC which I ordered after the new 3 way gimbal that has not arrived yet even though it arrived in UK a day earlier  :(

    Looking at the profile I might like them too. Quite similar the the T5045's but with more pitch. Imma get some :smiley:

  • Oh good Revs, soon we will have a review we can trust.
  • #2383 by Hozza on 20 Apr 2017
  • And mine has arrived, but not happy the button is pushed in.

  • Oh good Revs, soon we will have a review we can trust.

    Yeah gimme a bit of time to have a play and get some flying in and I'll report back.

    Bit of a bummer that Hozza. There is a contact info card in the box, give them a shout, they're good with after-sales usually.
  • #2385 by apollo7 on 20 Apr 2017
  • Postie brought a nice sunnysky x3108 720kv motor............i now have four of these and a large quad frame, so when the 40amp little bee esc`s arrive i will finish my 600 quad  :cool:

    Ouch mate, sympathy

    Revs - buttercutters, only had time for a few packs but blindingly good, excellent low throttle control, massive speed, amp draw is high because of speed but no worse than rk5051

    I still thin they will be durable as polystyrene in a crash but don't care :D

  • Nice Mr Postie brought me Marty's s/h Stanton TSX200 frame. :)

    Of course, I have spent the last 45 minutes completely assembling it and now need to buy the rest of the bits to go on it !

    Happy Friday as I think my Lumenier Lux V2 is sat waiting for me to collect from the sorting office. :)

    The HC06 bluetooth module hasn't arrived yet so adjustments via usb only at moment.

  • Today I got a Runcam swift 2. I've been using cheap CCD mini FPV cams for ages, So I finally decided to see if something tripple the price is worth the outlay.

    On a whim I also got 3 of the Foxeer IR blocked 2.5mm lenses to try in the cheaper cams. Partly to try out IR blocked lenses, But mainly because I'm currently using cams with a range of different FOV's and it's starting to dawn on me that I'll never be able to fly accurately if the first 2 packs when I change quads is spent trying to get used to a different FOV.

    Lastly, BangGoods first real feck up with me.
    I ordered 2 sets of the Racerstar 2403 motors. I wanted to swap them for the 2205's I've got on a couple of the fleet because I've realised that on some of my quads it's worth sacrificing 40% of the maximum thrust to half the amp draw and double the flight time (Or be able to get away with lower mAh/C rating batterys).
    Problem here is that BangGood have only sent ONE full set of the BR2403's. The second "Set" is comprised of 2x CW 2403's, And 2x CCW 2205's (OK. I know they both add up to 9, But I'm not sure it would work myself. :) ).
    I've requested that they send out the missing CCW2403's, So we'll see what happens. The few problems I've had with BG before have resulted in parts being resent or partial refunds. As it stands, The 2205's are of no use to me as I'll eventually have the 2 sets of 2205's spare that I'm taking off the quads the 2403's are going on. I wonder if anyone there would be silly enough to offer me a few quid of store credit as an exchange for the 2x half sets of unusable motors? :)
  • #2397 by shawdreamer on 22 Apr 2017
  • some neopixel smd's for my latest builds
    somemore ceramic bearings for modding one of my printers
    a lacy strappy thing for the missus (to soften my build spending blows)
    and another cc3d v2.0 for one of the new builds


    still no sign of m deltawing or new build motors though.....Im starting to wonder if I didnt select the right postage option grrr :confused:

    That's one cool cardboard box you've got there. Can we get another shot of it without that Fisher Price FRsky thing in the way of it though? LOL !!!!
