Title: What did the postman bring today?
Post by: PaulJC on May 27, 2015, 16:08:51
As the title says "What parts did the postie bring you today?"

This always seems to be a popular one on forums, so "What did you postman deliver for YOU today?"

I'll kick it off with what i got...

3 x 6S 10000Mah Multistars for 'the ****** thing that refuses to fly straight'...
(http://i249.photobucket.com/albums/gg217/PaulJC_album/2015-05-27%2015.30.31_zps9hwglnet.jpg)

Some 250 spares from Phil (Makeitbuildit) which also arrived with a load of other props from china...

Was hoping my 6600 4s 10c's would turn up today (ordered over the weekend) but I only got the dispatch email this morning. Fingers crossed for tomorrow :smiley: I suspect they've had a rush on lipo's since they got some stock.

Got my "unbreakable" props today. Not bad. Paid the extra $2 for expedited shipping and they were here in 10 days.
Well packaged and wrapped in a big cardboard box, if they are as unbreakable as they claim to be then they should have just slapped them in an envelope. :laugh:

Have to say they look very weedy, I'll be very impressed if they can hold their own.
Not entirely sure I was thinking of when I ordered, seem to have 6 pairs when I swear I wanted 10. :-/ Losing the marbles i think.

The last two weeks I am getting regular parcels. It is getting VERY difficult to hide them from my wife.
Made her feel good yesterday as SHE got a parcel...
Seriously though, some of us around here have taken an interest in indoor flying. We haven't started yet and at present we are all buying up micro servos, 10 gram motors, 10 amp ESCs and micro RXs.
Plus tons of other nick nacks.
So far these 'çheap' indoor fliers have cost me over $230 in the last week and a half.   :o  ::)
Thought I might get my wife one of these so she can join us.  http://www.banggood.com/Eachine-H8-Mini-Headless-Mode-2_4G-4CH-6-Axis-RC-Quadcopter-RTF-p-975808.html (http://www.banggood.com/Eachine-H8-Mini-Headless-Mode-2_4G-4CH-6-Axis-RC-Quadcopter-RTF-p-975808.html)

Lol. Sounds like you could use some man counter argument logic. The last time the missus passed comment that I was wasting money on multi number 9 when I rarely fly 1, I simply countered that she had dozens of pairs of jeans and can only wear one. And so ended the conversation.

Props and case from Phil and two 12v LED lights that has 6 switchable colours.

In color change mode you can change the color of the light.

In flash mode you can adjust the flash speed of the light.

In Steady Light mode you could change the brightness of the light

I am using blue at the front and red at the rear.

I'll get used to the goggles i think, the picture is lovely quality but the smaller screen, stretched aspect and slight fish eye effect are just different to the DIY type goggles i've been using. they were a late night frustrated purchase when my hacked together DIY goggles had a meltdown the night before heading off down south to go to harlington funfly day.

2 of my friends use the skyzones and have done a lovely mod on them to get rid of the eyecups and use a nice foam surround for comfort so I'll be laying these off for that soon. must say its nice to be able to breath through my nose whilst flying and not sound like biggles on a radio check.

TBH, i think if i had a Pix i'd have gone straight for LIDAR, yeah sure it's more expensive but it's also pretty much cm accurate up to about 30m where sonar does about 5 at best, but sonar is half the price and should work on APM which is why i went for it ;)

It says it's a um-28-28 GPS, the whole lot was £29.50 shipped from portsmouth, it's a stand alone OSD, I got it for my wing, it does have extra adc inputs so I'm going to try to get rssi on it.
 I tried it out tonight and it's f***ing brilliant!!! Having a home arrow and distance from home is great, as is having the height and ground speed, I did set up the battery voltage and timer but seem to have my fatshark cam on NTSC so they were missing off the bottom lol but I'll get it in PAL for the next go!

Using this post (and forum) to justify spending!

Thanks for the chaps in the chat room for recommending the Zippy batteries. I'll give them a go. Mostly spares and connectors so that I can tidy up wires. And some Lumenier aluminium feet - it's the only weak point of their QAV250 - this time I'll remember to loctite them in!

Fantastic! I've also got the AeroxCraft landing gear on my F550 (Have to say, very impressed with it!), along with a zenmuse gimbal.
Would definitely be interested to see if/how you get on with making the landing gear easily removable as I'd be interested in doing the same, providing it was 100% secure when it is fitted.  :tongue:

Also would be very interested in hearing if you get much of a reduction in vibrations with those new arms?

Didn't get any vibrations with the plastic arms would be inserting to see if I do with the ally arms.
I only ended up getting them as I won the monthly draw with aeroxcraft and got a £100 girt voucher.

I ended up buying a ready built because boychild knocked my soldering iron over (and then stood on it) so the Armattan build service was cheaper than a new iron.

Needless to say I can't wait, for a 258 it looks quite big and the 7 inch props should make it interesting

That's pretty impressive!  Does he do an instruction video for every customer that buys a BNF kit from him?

I've been drooling over had the pleasure of handling a few of the Armattan frames at Phil's stand at Weston (including the one you ordered).  The finish and quality is something else.  You'll be very pleased, I'm sure. ~~

As far as I can tell yes (he sent me a couple of other 258 videos when I was thinking about ordering)

Well thinking about it a customer with all is fingers attached is a happier customer ;)

I've been wanting one for almost 2 years (they used to be aluminium) and I just decided to bite the bullet on Tuesday afternoon.

Still have to order an RX and some 2200 Lipos but haven't had time :(

Ebay £17.99  http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/261710246845?_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/261710246845?_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT)
Only downside is it only records in 640 x 480 or 320 x 240  :(  I'll try and bodge the connections together and see what the quality is like

Haha, I love how they've got away with putting 'Low bitrate' as a feature  :rofl:
That said, I'm very tempted by one of these! Definitely keep us posted. What're you powering with?

Just posted a video in http://www.multi-rotor.co.uk/index.php?topic=14570.0 (http://www.multi-rotor.co.uk/index.php?topic=14570.0) 

Powering it with a 3S that also powers the Vrx & screens/goggles

One feature I like is you can either have it on continuous record or as soon as it detects a movement in the video feed

also got some addressable LEDS to play with and some small COB type LEDS

also got a pair of crimpers for doing co-axial cable connections. going to experiment with some bulkheads for my antennae.

Not rc related but today I got a new electric shaver cause I managed to break my old one by twirling it about to dry it after wet shaving with it - the head flew off and smashed.
Not worth repairing it so I ordered a nice shiny new Panasonic one from Shavers uk

They look nice. I don't know if you are intending to make it air tight but I am not sure that is a good thing. OK so a fire needs oxygen to burn so in theory not letting oxygen in will stop the fire. The problem is we are potentially talking about a metal fire. I am not sure a. if a fire starts will the increase in pressure in an airtight container cause an explosion? b. will depriving the fire of oxygen cause it to extinguish?

Must say I have no idea about metal fires at all. Only have a little experience in petrochemical storage and useage and fire precautions.

Nope, don't worry, not making it air tight, just disuading the pressure's primary outlet from being these holes. I'm fitting it with two fair sized pressure vents which feed into air filters (with the aim of minimising toxic smoke entering the room)  :smiley:

My first ever order from Banggood arrived today. Must have been at least 3 weeks since I placed the order.
Anyway, I now have a Mobius camera, a pair of Spironet antennas and a straight SMA to RP-SMA adapter that's going straight in the "box of bits I will probably never use", as the antennas fit onto my vtx and vrx just fine.
I should probably try and finish building the 250 quad they are destined to be put on, but I'm off to London for some SAD treatment (i.e., sunshine, which we have not had a lot of this summer in Scotland).

Today I got it big and green ... I've had my eye on this battery for a while and decided to give one a try, see how it goes on my hex. 

This is a 10,000mAh 4S 10C unit, so its not going to be for looning about the skies.  But I am expecting some decent flight times, upwards of 20 minutes, preferably more.  With 14 minutes from a 5,000mAh I hope that this will realise my ambition.

Internal Resistance on this battery was measured at 2, 2, 5, 2.  I'll have to keep an eye on that third cell, see if they even out with successive charges.

Here shown alongside my existing 5000mAh 3S batteries
(http://s15.postimg.org/gl8zej6vb/vl_D3_Xhx1rps7bf_Iy_PTbh_Vs_KJD_FDq_MYDt_D_Xjc1m3_MM_w1056_h597_no.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/gl8zej6vb/)

The first charge was a short one, and only took in 3860mA
(http://s24.postimg.org/skpzwd0kx/Pc_Uvccf_JJf_SIEEpal_F9qb_YGm_Ph1_Qy_ABWZKq_J0_ztd_ZU6_w1056_h597_no.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/skpzwd0kx/)

And the plug on the battery is an SX90 so I made up an adapter to SX60 that I normally use on all my aircraft

Yeah, I wouldn't like to stand by and watch that go up!  :o  I've had a few that have had one cell a bit out, this one isn't too bad. They usually level out or get close after a few charges.

It gets its first airing Saturday morning. Just a single session to see how much I get out of the first charge.  ~~

A great value if it delivers on the power that I expect it to. Modest, long duration, not weak.  :crossfingers:

So a brief update to the new 10,000mAh LiPo that had its first flight today...

Using my custom build miniMax Hex I achieved my desired 20 minutes flight time ~~  A splendid result for me.   At the end of the flight the Taranis telemetry was warning me of a lowest cell voltage of 3.65.  After landing the cell voltage stabilised across all four cells at 3.71V.   There's nothing wrong with that.

The flight consisted of Pos Hold loitering, rapid climbing at full throttle, a bit of hooning around the field like I stole it, and some gentle maneuvering activity as if doing UAS work.  There was a light be persistent breeze blowing throughout, and so the auto-stabilisation was called upon to do its work throughout.

AUW 2,198g.

Saturday morning, A FrSky X4R-SB Receiver and a couple of spare antennas from RobotBirds bounced off my doormat.

(http://s24.postimg.org/yb31g2ggh/IMG_2259.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/yb31g2ggh/)

Bit of a learning curve going from CPPM to SBUS, and I soon realised that I needed to invert the SBUS serial signal for the Naze32 to understand it... so a quick trip to Maplin and some spare components donated by a friend, and I made this...

(http://s27.postimg.org/f9qapqjrj/q4_OHAa_PUctp_JTXEc_LHex_YSq_V5_EKI5_TKqq_PQi_Dv398_Sg_TYqyc_EQg_Teu_WFnt_Ok_ESXZROwu_KP7_IXZql_T5_CEr_H0_Dy_QEMxw8.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/f9qapqjrj/)

Pretty neat I think, shame I didn't have any 90deg header pins, but it works really well, I'm happy with my creation and now have a whopping 16 channels to play with. (Thanks to this forum for sharing some simple circuit diagrams). Now to hide it away somewhere and cover it with heatshink.

Also, thanks to Quadfather for sharing a link showing me how to send RSSI over one of my many spare channels up to Cleanflight to use... http://blog.oscarliang.net/rssi-ppm-channel-taranis/ (http://blog.oscarliang.net/rssi-ppm-channel-taranis/) - It's MUCH MUCH more accurate than the 3.3v analogue RSSI_ADC pin on the side (and doesn't need tiny wires soldered to little round pads either).

Yup, thems the new ones.

Factory balanced?? I think not! I've tested 2 out of the first packet. One is ok, the other is not. Nothing major though.  Will give them a flight test shortly. ~~

Thats interesting ... I saw a short video by the Surveilzone chaps that was demonstrating their "out of the packet" perfect balance using a Dubro (get one, they're expensive, but the dogs danglies of balancers).  Interesting that 3/4 were spot on.  I've got some on order already in eager anticipation ::)   Did you try to balance the 4th prop and did it take much doing?

HO I use the Dubro truspin and its a great piece of kit, and my batch of 5 sets of 5040 only required less than 2.5mm of elect tape at worst, and that was on about 30% of the blades

The 4th prop took a tiny bit of balancing but it wasn't majorly off like you get with the 6040's. See the pic below.

[attach=1]

That picture was taken after the emergency failsafe (switch off tx and pray) was initiated due to very bad signal and my quad shooting like a missile straight up in the air (one of my aerials on the rx had come lose and I hadn't noticed). It dropped like a stone from 40 (my spotter reckons 50) foot. Not a scratch on the props...

Performance wise, i flew the HQ Bullnose 5x4.5 and Dal 6040's at the weekend and they felt sluggish on my ZMR. The Dal 5x4.5's today felt waaay better. Responsive with loads of punch and that was just on 3S. I had just strapped on a 4s when I had my 'accident'.

A 10 metre roll of neoprene arrived this morning.
As did 8 new DAL props, 24 rubber feet for the QAV250, and one of these:

(http://www.hobbyrc.co.uk/content/images/thumbs/0002815_hobbyrc-race-spec-1400mah-3s-75-130c-lipo-battery_300.jpeg)

This is the second battery of this type that I've bought.
They are a little bit saggy, but the power delivery is EPIC.
And they are very light weight. :>  And heats up much less than the Kypoms..

I think this is my favourite model of battery now.
Title: Re: What did the postman bring today?
Post by: Revs on August 17, 2015, 16:06:22
I'd be interested in any v-droop testing on that battery if you can mate.
Title: Re: What did the postman bring today?
Post by: annikk.exe on August 17, 2015, 16:47:42
v-droop?  I've not heard that term before. :>  But I guess maybe that's the same thing as Voltage Sag?

My experience is that the fresh lipo out the box was VERY saggy for the first 2-3 cycles.

Sometime around the 4th cycle I realised it was now only sagging at the very start of discharge.  For example, most of my lipos sag to 12.0 volts within a few seconds of takeoff, and I feel like that is about normal.  These were sagging to about 11.4... and bear in mind this is following 5-10 seconds of slow-n-steady forward flight after a very gentle takeoff.

For the first few cycles, this sag would extend right to the end of the lipo's life.  So my Taranis would start screaming "VOLTAGE CRITICAL!!! OMG!!!" and I would land, and the lipo would bounce back to 11.0 volts...  very frustrating!

But 4th cycle onwards, I found that it only sags a lot at the start.  Toward the end, it's not especially saggy... no more than any other lipo.

So I really find it hard to fault this batteries.  Just to remind, these have power delivery like ****** on the business end of a shovel.  I have not encountered a lipo with this much power delivery capability, and in fact I suspect my 250 is not able to make full use of the power that is on tap.
Also, the capacity is tremendous.  Discharging to 10.8 volts, I found the charger is putting 1700mAh back in.  On a battery rated for 1400, that's very good.

It weighs 132 grams, although I could trim that down a bit by shortening the unusually long 12AWG wires.
The balance connector is slightly longer than I'd ideally like... about 2-3 inches, I'd prefer 1-2.  It sticks out a bit when I'm flying, it's hard to find somewhere to tuck it in.  I guess those could be shortened too, though..

It's a very long and flat battery - the longest and flattest that I own.  I have to shove it all the way back into my VTX antenna to get it sitting roughly overhead the FC.

A final note, these batteries do not get very hot considering what I do to them. =P
I spoke to HobbyRC quite a bit about them, I actually contacted them after the first flight to ask about the saggyness.
They are saying that those lipos need a few charge/discharge cycles to properly get going.
They also said that they have very low internal resistance, whereas the Kypoms had quite high internal resistance.  That explains why the Kypoms got very warm, and these do not.


In summary... I recommend these lipos.  Sagging only occurs at the start of the battery once you're through the first few cycles.  The power delivery is immense, as is the capacity, and they stay relatively nice and cool.

My Ultra-Nano quad arrived and got to say, for the price (I paid £11, it's currently less than £8), I'm incredibly impressed!
With a body far smaller than a 10p piece this thing is small, I mean it's tiny! It can charge from a USB cable (included) or straight from the transmitter which also has a cool little area to house the quad when it's not in use. It's incredibly stable, fairly fast, a cool (but rather talentless) push-to-flip feature and a very rudimentary return to home feature (Which I've yet to properly test as haven't flown outdoors yet).

Response wise, it reacts fast enough but even when removing the coined 'throttle limit' it's maximum tilt seems to be fairly shallow. Again, I've not had a proper throw around outdoors yet but fairly sure it would be impossible to action a flip manually.

Even so, a great little quad to keep in your bag or pocket for when the feeling grabs you, and you certainly can't go wrong for less than £8!!

I would be careful about doing that, 10000mah @ 10C gives potential for 100A discharge in abnormal situations.

The +-~ markings are on the side of the casing, but to be fair they're hard to see. IIRC you use the bind port for CPPM.

Loads of Dal 5040 Bullnose props and a brace of those Turnigy 10000mAh LiPo to go with the first one that I bought a few weeks back.  The miniMax Hex loves them, I got 20 minutes flight down to 3.7V on the lowest cell.  Beautiful IR on these, being 1-2-1-1 which kind of makes me think they are not 10C at all ...

In regard to the XT90 connectors - I use XT60 on all my kit, so I have made up an adaptor by soldering the respective connectors back to back.  My hex doesn't pull anywhere near the 60A capability of the XT60 so I'm well within tolerance.   If in doubt do check your own setup with a power meter.

Seems like everybody is trying these, like Slobberdog57 said, they're not as flexible as the 5040s, but also not as ridged as the 6040, so hopefully the resiliency is somewhere between, with a bit more thrust than 5040.

Great fit on the Dominators and after just trial wearing them for a couple of mins they seem really comfortable, no droop like they do on the rubber eye sockets, and you then don't have to tighten the strap so much so it removes pressure from around the eyes.

the fan blows a nice little amount (enough to feel it) into the lens area, but its not like wind in your eyes, so looking forward to getting these on to fly with now.

If Mother Nature give us a freaking break that is.

Thats really nice to know SD - where from in the UK? Or did you import them?  Thinking I should at least have a go at improving the Attitude situation (the goggles, not mine!!).   This looks good. Otherwise I may have to stump up for a new set of V3 Doms, which I really don't want to do ...

Yup, will do. Ordered last night so I guess they'll be here early next week.  Thinking silicone mastic will do the lightproofing and sealing if necessary.

I took delivery of my Fat Shark face mask, made fro Dominator goggles but to be used on my Attitude.  They're not a proper fit, so I used black silicone sealant/glue to fix into place. It takes 24 hours to cure fully, so I'm leaving them in this state until tomorrow.  Then I can fix the foam face-insert into place and go play.

I also got the enlarged Fat Shark goggles case - all from firstpersonview in the UK.

A scanner that does 433.92 MHz on both the AM (and the more normal FM) 433 MHz TX (& RX) modules for Arduino (and a spare mini Arduino board, just in case it's ever needed)

Theres also 8Gig of RAM that I just installed in the laptop, but that's not very multirotor based.

Now I have to order a couple of 433MHz trackers, build a Yagi antenna and wait on some 8 inch props.

Not at all mate.  I used some black silicone sealant to "glue" it into place. Which has the added benefit of blocking out any light leakage through the small gaps that exist where the Attitude are slightly smaller than the Dominator.  I left it 24 hours to cure the silicone and it is a solid unit now.  Rough handling may make it separate but I typically don't' do that.

Not at all, it was £224.40 delivered ... From here http://www.rigol-uk.co.uk/Rigol-DS1052E-Digital-Oscilloscope-p/ds1052e.htm#.Vfgi7xFVhBc (http://www.rigol-uk.co.uk/Rigol-DS1052E-Digital-Oscilloscope-p/ds1052e.htm#.Vfgi7xFVhBc) 

EBay was more expensive and unlikely to have the same post-sales support reputation that Rigol and Telonic seem to have.

If you're feeling particularly brave, and I am not, there is a "hack" to 100MHz ... but I'm more than happy with what I've bought.  Hack for the brave/foolish is here --> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DM3VU0FG_7Q (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DM3VU0FG_7Q)

RotorX 1104 4000kv Motors
RotorX 3020 props
Naze32
TX5823 vtx and aomway antenna
Kiss ESC's
CC1563 camera

I'll post up a proper thread about it somewhere later. It should generate around 170g thrust per corner and its around 140g AUW with a 450mah 65c battery.

I suspect there may be a lot of small frames coming. DYS and EAchine have clone motors available now, HQ have just announced a 3030 prop with the same direct fitment.

The only fly in the ointment is very little option for HD recording. I might get an 808 camera, or try decasing a mobius or runcam, but that will have to wait until next month I suspect.

19mm. I had to stretch it a bit and even then it was a squeeze to get it over the motors. I had to line up the crease with the shaft (fnarr) and tug it over. Matron.

Great day for deliveries... not so much for the actual stuff.

BrOSD - but magic smoke has already killed it.  :banghead:

A dys esc usb linker - that I can't get to connect.  :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

I'm not going flying today, because I know what will happen.

To be fair to hobbyrc, they've already sent a replacement for the camera after I phoned them up and walked them through everything I had done to connect the camera, so not all is lost.

Will do mate. I just need to find out if it can share UART2 with the speksat before I plumb it up. Speksat connects to the rx pin RC4 and the Openlog can connect to tx pin RC3, but I just don't know if it's safe to do both at the same time. Otherwise it'll have to go in UART1 and I'll lose the USB when it armed. Not a major issue but I'd prefer it on UART2.

V1.1. First 3 installed and worked fine, but I overheated the 4th and it's replacement (I got 5 incase this happened) and they unleashed the magic smoke on power up. I hate soldering ESCs!

Bad juju for sure. Are you sure it was your soldering and not an inherent fault with those two?
Title: Re: What did the postman bring today?
Post by: Revs on October 22, 2015, 12:07:05
No way of knowing bud. Can't test them without soldering them up. I think the problem is that the heat transfers through the ESC so quickly with them being so tiny that it melts the transistor solder and causes a short.

Sorry to hear about that Revs.  The 12a ones really are tiny... I remember when I was soldering the OneShot jumpers on mine, I was all ready to go but then had to go and eat something sweet and sit quietly and meditate for 20 minutes just to get the shakyness in my hands to settle down enough so I could hold the soldering iron steady.  Mine smoked in the fullness of time too, but not before I did a heap of flying with them.  I still love those ESCs... I miss them... :>

With regard to flooding the device with heat...  I saw on a video from Felix Niesson (sp?) that when soldering the motor wires, you don't need to worry about heat too much, as the nfets are very heat stable.  I think the signal wire is the trickiest one to do..

Hope you get it going in the end... and the flight characteristics that KISS provides should make it worthwhile, hopefully :>

Two Chinese NEO-7M GPS/Mag and folding stands - one to repair the TBS Disco and the other ... well ... one would have been lonely ::)

A few sets of strobes arrived also. They'll need dismantling and made more suited to multi-rotor use.  Something to do on the cold dark nights. ~~

Argos DID NOT deliver the second chair - computer glitch - its due tonight between 7pm and 10pm.  We'll see.

Not sure about the 5x4's, but I tried some DAL6x4's a couple of weeks back and they were the weakest props I've ever tried. They broke at the root every time, usually both blades, so pliers were needed to hold the hub while removing the nut. Yet the 5x4.5BN are crazy tough.

Hope you have better luck with them than I did, Dave. Than again, at that price it's not the end of the world.

Revs where did you get yours from and which colour ? I got some from radioC in their last offer, purple ones  very impressed with them took quite a beating. Have the 5x4.5BN from banggood as well bit more bendy, just bent them back after a crash.
QC problems from DAL or differentish plastic in the different colours?
Title: Re: What did the postman bring today?
Post by: Revs on November 11, 2015, 08:49:45
It was a set my mate gave me to try. They were the red ones and I think they were from Fast Lads. The BN ones, also red, are literally unbreakable. I thought the issue with the 6040s was design (overly strong blade, weak root) but if you were getting on ok with them it could be material.

Just 12a ones. I'm only running 1104 motors, 3020 props on 3s with them, so they wont draw much more than 4amps at max I would think. Even if I decide to chuck a 4s battery on there, they won't come close to the rated amp draw.
Title: Re: What did the postman bring today?
Post by: Revs on November 11, 2015, 13:54:52
It's not the amp draw that has been the issue with mine, it's the installation (heat while soldering). Now I've actually got a set of 4 KISS12A's on the quad installed and working, they've been trouble free. Had about 2 hrs flying time an umpteen crashes and they're fine. I'm good at cutting the throttle just before crashing though. I see a lot of people not cutting it fast enough in a crash and I think that's when the fires start.

I dont' use a screen protector for mine - but then one of them has the BT keyboard and case.  The other one, that gets chucked into by Flight Box is "naked" and so far has been okay - but i do take extraordinary care not to allow stuff to come into contact with the screen.  I reckon either a neoprene case or similar would be an idea.

From restoring pocket knives, old stanley's and such, when changing a blade, sandwich the blade between 2 bits of leather or thick cloth and then put one piece of tape round it to secure and squeeze it tight. Grip from the back edge.

Alternatively, stick the blade into a soft piece of cork.

That sounds like perfect matches to me :>  Don't worry!  You got this :>

It will be good as well cause you'll get to directly experience the difference between flying with CPPM and SBUS.  I drastically prefer SBUS, it has about 20ms lower latency which might not sound like a lot, but it feels much more "immediate" to me.  16 channels is also pretty ace. :>  It's a little trickier to set up than CPPM, imho.  With the Rev 6 you shouldn't have any problems though. :>

Ring your credit card company and ask for a chargeback! You will have to provide proof of purchase and the company saying they will refund etc... The card company should refund you and the company get 45 days to object. That way you get your money back and the company get a bit of hassle. They should have better customer service in the first place.

Merry Christmas and Happy Flying

Sorry to hear about that.  Did all 4 ESCs go up?

It might be a good idea to carefully check your wires and PDB with a multimeter..  There might be a manufacturing fault with the PDB causing a short, or something.  You wouldn't want to smoke the replacements too!

Just No. 1 esc burnt out  :cry I quickly unplugged the power to investigate. I'll check the pdb, I've got a spare one so will just change it over anyway.
It just seems strange that only that one esc burnt out  :shrug:
So from a simple change of the motors it's turned into new motors , esc's,pdb and a re-wire  ~~
It started out I was only changing the motors due to one being crash damaged,,,,so now I have 3 spare motors + 3 esc's lol

8GB of Crucial DDR3 memory for the tower PC that I am rebuilding to be the man cave's permanent resident PC.  It'll network back to a disk share in the house where all the RC files will be collated.

They are chunky little things. 8g/motor heavier and a fair bit taller than the X2204S's, but they're actually 2205's. But 200g more thrust per motor over the Sunnysky's, so 800g more thrust overall! Not too crazy price wise either  :smiley:

Yeah its super light!! I got it to strap to my HK Q-bot, but I'm pretty sure it will get strapped to all my gear (even potentially to the cat) Haha  ::)

You'll probably need xt90's on those things!

Postie brought me a fatshark 1800 goggles battery. The one with the button and LEDs so you can tell how much charge is remaining. Hope it's better than the standard 1000 fatshark battery because that thing is junk!

The image quality is great. I cant complain at all. I must still range test it outdoors though! Definitely worth it. I want to design a little brushed frame based around it now and then transplant the Q-bot innards to the new frame. But I think I will do that in a new post :)

I'm fancying one of those camera's to. Liking the compact size. Price seems quite cheap.

Only concern is how / looks like the antenna is fixed ?
How would it stand up to a crash.

Only if you're drawing over 60A constant or long bursts. I'm putting short bursts of over 100A through an XT60 and it seems to cope ok. Just make sure the connection is nice and tight for maximum contact area.

Well I've just ordered some XT90s but I'd definitely like to stick to XT60s if possible. Would make my life a lot easier.
Hmm, lets see. I'm flying a hex with 20A ESCs so technically (excluding the zenmuse gimbal) I can pull up to 120A but realistically I'd imagine it's considerably less. Only being used for aerial video so not exactly doing acrobatics but MTOW is at the upper limits of the motors recommended range.
Title: Re: What did the postman bring today?
Post by: Revs on March 02, 2016, 15:49:55
I suspect you'll be fine with XT60's, but always do a load test with a watt meter to be sure. I bet it's well under 20A in a hover.

Mine just arrived Jeremy, tested on the Diversity Monitor first, came to what i thought was the best channel and looked fine, cant complain at all, so just tried the Attitude V3`s with it, really a lot better image in those, very comparable to the Spektrum one, one thing i did notice though, it seems to be better with Light than the Spektrum one, eg, not going anywhere near as dark in brighter light.

Good old Banggood ::)
Ornithopters have always interested me, couldn't resist!!!
The Hubsan..... well as some who know me might have guessed I've not been doing much multirotor flying for a while - I got preoccupied with my fixed wing interests, but now i'm back and have to learn all over again.
So off we go with my Inductrix and the new addition the Hubsan  (with a camera!!!). I shall not be going down the small racer route but most likely 450 or bigger for a camera ship and of course my tricopters.
Videos will follow as soon as I can get some micro sd cards!!!

Something for me and the kids to play with !
A Pioneer JXD 509g - 5.8 FPV, altitude hold, return to land, headless mode.
Plastic fantastic lol reality does the picture to much justice,,,,these things are cheap but it does fly ok. It was windy when I had a first go with it though I recon it will fly nice and steady when its calm. As for the barometer, its a little lively trying to maintain its altitude but it does work. Return to land lol,,,,well it sort of like flys back to you but I wouldn't rely on this. Headless mode works perfect, but this totally confused my tiny brain slightly, as it goes against everything I've learned when flying quads with orientation. Yet to test the camera & fpv.

DOA aint good,,, its a real gamble with toy grade cheap as chips stuff.
When its calm the alt hold is excellent ! Camera is crap, I still cant get the video to work, so might remove the camera/vtx unit + monitor and sell cheap on evilBay,,,,, then fit the quanum fpv combo unit :-)

The idea is to use a carbon rod inside the existing wing brace and glue it all in. (Gorilla glue for the additional carbon spar and uhu por to glue the composite spar in).
We are going to use those 2212 2200 kv suppo motors I like in them on 5x5 props, should give about 300 W on 3S.
It should be quite quick but not up to real pylon racer speeds but a very cheap fun model.

Interested in what you think of the tj4045s, seen some very mixed opinions with people here loving them and others on regroups loathing

they'll increase flight time quite bit, but with a large loss in thrust and air grip compared to the BN's i would think just by looking at them, i thought something was wrong with them when i first saw them :laugh:

Be interested on how you like the VTXs I have one and a Black Pearl screen on order .

I've been using one for a while and it's spot on. I'm using a TX5G2R too but that's started randomly blacking out for 1-2 secs so it's gonna have to go, it's already caused a couple of crashes. The IRC one is still solid. Great signal and image, no noise at all. Though a bit heavy and a bit pricey.

Believe the lumenier ones are slightly reworked fx799

Had a similar signal loss recently, was related to voltage spike from active breaking

I assumed as much, though the ImmersionRC one doesn't suffer this issue. On both they're powered by a dedicated reg with noise filtering. I picked up some caps yesterday to help with the spikes. And yes the TX5G2R is very similar to the TX799.

Haha, cool.
Just so you know though, that's my own personal logo which I designed originally for www.bristolfpv.co.uk (http://www.bristolfpv.co.uk) but will be using it for my Aerial Video website when it launches soon.

I know it's a simple design and fairly generic but it was made from scratch and I'm hoping to use it as part of my branding. This is ok but I'd appreciate it if you avoided using my designs in future. Cheers buddy

Put elsewhere here due history of interest, but I have just received two Diatone ET 160 frames, and the base frame of 2mm (actually 1.98mm) of the first two I bought has been changed to 2.65mm (actually 2.57 to 2.78).

Looks considerably thicker than the dimensions suggest.

I bought two as I was going to do an extreme one and would have bonded the two bases together, now I'm undecided!!  Maybe I'll strip the bigger motored 2mm one, bond one of each base size an so and make it 4.65mm.!!  :cool:

Lol several people here swear by them, never tried them but the t5045 tris work fine, just a little too indestructible, crashes were starting to damage he motor, switched back to hq since cheaper and easier to change a broken prop than a motor

Post by: nub on May 13, 2016, 12:56:50
there's hardly any surface on the blade, not sure why but they don't look quite right to me, when you look at the TJ5045 and 5045BN, then look at the TJ4045 and 4045BN, the TJ4045 blade looks skinnier than it should be IMHO, i mean great for flight time but otherwise no good.

not sure if i'm describing it right :laugh:

Lol of course I went for it, as nub said, I have a problem :)

Will be using hq5040 gr and cr triblades and dal t5045 triblades, based on below am expecting about 30 amps at full throttle with between 1300-1400g of thrust per motor depending on the prop ("down" might also be a problem)

Replacement Mobius wide angle lens camera. (latest version)

Original is out in our field somewhere in the long grass, complete with Mobius clip tray, strap, Nighthawk carbon anti-vibration mount plate and three of the four rubber doughnuts, and yes it was security cable tied through the plate corners and doughnut centres to the main frame.

It had a video blackout while FPV low level and it didn't come back, so with an oak tree a short distance ahead, I did not dare get altitude in the hope of signal restoration so chose to cut throttle and hope. The lost model buzzer located it straight away and the quad was found upside down balanced up on the long tangled grass (field hay), one broken prop, grass stalks wrapped round motor shaft, but the Camera and mount were missing and could not be found. Even took a grass rake up the following morning to try to sift the immediate area and where it might have been thrown (though it had to shear four cable ties to do it!!).

Video has worked well since, so don't know why it blanked out.

Camera had a 32Gb card in, too...............and some good video of screaming turns through hoop flying.....  :cry

I shan't treat that with the contempt it deserves......................  :nananana:

Given the vagaries of getting the three of us together with decent filming conditions/light, possibly the latter, as while you don't plan to lose a camera, you know that race quads are going to cost repairs, etc, so its the racer's mindset.

Like years ago when I stripped a tyre tread at Brands Hatch, it wasn't the £250 bill, it was the loss of track time..........  :azn

It was pretty cheap.   ~~  I only paid £25 or something for it from Gearbest EU warehouse.  I've put it together and tested it on the kitchen table, but either I've been away or the weather has been too windy to test it out.  Hoping I can get it sky bound over the weekend, but the weather forecast isn't looking pretty!

Ordered a load of protective flight case foam too so I can make new homes for a few of my man toys.   ::)

3 sets of CW/CCW Carbon Blades for the Phantom 3 have arrived from DJI.  Might try them out on the Cheerson CX-20 too as I've heard they sharpen up the flight responses.

Nice new sunshade for the Phantom tablet for FPV.  Hoping it works because I've not been able to see almost anything on my tablet in the sunshine so far.

Removable prop guards for the Phantom as well.  I don't use them often as they get into the camera shot too frequently, but they can be handy in certain scenarios, so I like having snap-on/off ones fitted.  And they have to have tiny frame connectors in order to fit inside the hard case.  Had to search for these new ones for months as I didn't want to cut the Phantom 3 DJI case (as it cost £150!!!!! rip-off).

Also had a custom bracket 3D printed for the phantom so I can attach my GPS tracker to it.  You can just see it in the bottom pic.

Now waiting for Amazon delivery driver to arrive.   :waiting:   ::)

Liking that Inspire 1 Paul.  Who you gonna get to control the camera - I guess that's what the second TX is for?

After a bit of a to-do with Gearbest I finally received the 250 Racer and FPV kit I ordered.  It's a Walkera Runner 250 Upgraded version with the Walkera Goggle2 headset.  I originally ordered it from the EU warehouse during one of their lightning deal events, but after a couple of weeks of me emailing the about delivery they told me they had sold out.  So they sent it from China, which cost me a fair few pennies in Import duties, but it was still a very good deal and it looks cool.  Looking forward to getting to grips with FPV.  Or at least trying to!   :crossfingers:

It is yeah, it can either be independently controlled in everyday by the second controller+tablet, or you can still control it using one, it just gives creative options ;)

This insanely small and light camera/TX!!! Going to pop it on my Hubsan tonight :D
4.5grams all up! I still can't believe it!

Also, 4 of these new Turnigy Lipo bags. I've got to say, I'm really impressed with the feel and quality. They are much thicker than normal lipo bags and feel much more solid. Plus, they have the fold over flaps at the top to help prevent that common double jet of fire exploding out the top!

Foxeer HS1177 fpv camera for the 180  ::)
Lovely quality  ~~
It just needs positioning a bit further back I think, though it's easy to adjust focus where it is.

I'm having no issues with it at all ... most locked in I've ever had a quad and was so before tuning to!

Will let you know about my little 130 hopefully tomorrow

What was you issue?
If it was wobbles you should try the latest firmware ...

it appears to come down to vibs but nobody is 100% sure!

Had I been flyduino I'd have asked anybody with issues if they were willing to sent the entire quad to them....

Had I been flyduino I'd have asked anybody with issues if they were willing to sent the entire quad to them....

When I eventually removed it, the ongoing issues were; mid-throttle instablilty, didn't calibrate properly, USB coming off, random motor stops, unstable after a fast roll/pitch. Previous issues were; it would unregister itself after adjusting the filter setting, rotate 180 would randomly enable itself in flight (that was a fun one), speksat didn't work, stuck in DFU mode after flashing, inconsistant rates. These issue cost me more time messing that I care to think about, tons of props, two motors and one Hero4B, due to crashes. After 4 months I called it a day and haven't looked back.

I tried 2 different KISS FCs and both had combinations of these issues. Put a SPR-F3 in and it's been perfect since. And now bF flies 95% as good as KISS anyway.

I had a couple of 24A's that popped. One went on the fets and the other on the capacitors. Replaced with 30A's which kept stopping in flight. Back to 24A (new set of 4) when I fitted the SPR-F3 and it's been mint since. I wouldn't have gone back to the 24A but I had 6 spares so I thought I'd use them instead of selling them.

Very pleased with it. Although I don't get the enjoyment of building, it's nice to have something that just works out of the box.

I've bought this with the intention of learning how to fly well enough to take it with me to Ukraine in October.  Saw the Postcards from Pripyat video and thought I'd like to try that. It will be my third visit.  Just need to check with BA they'll let me take it on as hand luggage. Getting it in and out of Ukraine might be tricky. Hopefully won't get arrested for being a spy :)

Very nice Edd.  Good luck with your trip to Ukraine in October.  I'm sure you'll be plenty ready to fly the Phantom like a pro by then.

I'm still blown away by my Phantom 3 Advanced every time I fly it.  It's not just the ready built nature of the thing that can be refreshing but the fantastic software and ease of use that the DJI employs.

Love it for photography.   ~~

nice :smiley:

i had a mpk 25 but didn't like the way the digital encoders worked i had to use takeover mode in Ableton, which kind of goes against the idea of using an endless encoder, the keys felt nice though, probably about time i bought another one for when the notion takes me, i've been using a keyboard and mouse for way too long.

I know what you mean, its a bit stupid using endless encoders like potentiometers, also use Ableton

This MPK mini is replacing an MPK25 that I've played to death, just to list a couple of things that have broke one of the endless encoders (top row 2nd from left) has become flaky and the drum pads work when they want to.
I did like the keys on the MPK25 (they still work), on the mini they feel a little spongy, but that's to be expected for its small size.

The pads on the mini are spot on, not too sensitive and work when I trigger them, they are multipurpose too, pressing the CC button turns them into momentary/toggle switches for parts of the DAW, I have the first 3 set for record and playback control, the arpeggiator is not bad either, I've configured it for external clock sync so the tempo setting in Ableton acts as the master and nothing can get out of step when playing.

All in all this is a really nice unit and another plus is when you register the unit with Akai, you get MPC Essentials, SoniVOX Wobble and Hybrid 3 Air VST plugins, they have an impressive sound set which I know I will use. ::)

On the MPK25 did you have problems with the drum pads not working properly?
Mine have always been horrible to play even from new 3 years ago.

Black Widow 260 with Turnigy TGY-i6 and Mult-star carry case arrived.  Also a couple sets of spare props.  The TGY-i6 arrived mode 1 (cheaper) so I opened the TX and swapped the control gimbals and changed the mode setting in the digital menu to mode 2.

Only tested it in the garden so far but it seems a really nice little kit and a good flyer.  Surprisingly quick I think.

What motors are going on that 140?  I have DYS 1104's on two of my 150/160 Diatone ETs.

Nate80, the TGY-i6 is a brilliant little Tx, actually as you likely know a re-badged FlySky. I was sent a FS combo by mistake, and after cursing the supplier, decided to try it. Glad I did as despite some decent "named" Tx's available (inc Futaba 10CG, Spektrum DX9,  Taranis and even now a Horus Beta) the little FS-i6 is still happily and successfullymy main Quad Tx. 

Its a BRILLIANT package if you have youngsters about too due to its decent but light construction, small size and great feel, and also great to carry around. I know two long term Slope Soarers who tried out mine, then went and bought to be able to backpack more easily up the hills.

Great to know it's received such praise from other users.  I must admit, I'd seen a few slightly negative reviews about the size and weight of the TGY-i6, and I was a bit unsure myself when I first clapped eyes on it and got hold of it.  But it didn't take me long to realise what a tidy built TX it is, and I actually find it's size very comfortable (and I have fairly large hands).  The weight is a little low for my liking, but it's not a big deal or anything.

I think the online negative comments about it's size were based on - bigger must equal better!  For me the controls are all well placed and have a quality feel, and the digital menu is great and FAR more easy to use than the DEVO7 I also have.

The i6's twin antenna setup looks good and reportedly offers great range of about 400m, which is far better than the DEVO7's reported 100m range (though I've flown my Runner 250 out about 200m with no issues).

I realised the TX was a rebranded FS-i6 when I went looking for a simulator/firmware cable.   :smiley:  I was thinking about learning acrobatics in a free sim, but all the ones I've seen so far look a bit rubbish.

Looking forward to getting some decent flight times in with the TX, as soon as it stops raining.   :beer2:

You used to be able to get a sticker for your door to stop junk mail, if you didn't want it and they still pushed it through you can take legal action against them. We had one when we moved into this house and it worked but the missis took it of as she didn't like the colour.

Quanum V2 Pro diy goggles, Boscam FR632 Diversity Receiver, and a LiPo battery for the headset.

LiPo's for the Black Widow 260 and the V2 Pro's, a couple LiPo storage bags and some felt for modding the V2 Pro's.

Other bits and bobs like Cheerson CX-20 replacement pucks and compasses, 2500Mah rechargeable AA's for my TX's and a smart charger, turnigy battery charger and tester for my single cell LiPo's, couple of low voltage alarms, charge leads, coloured XT-60 end caps and some adhesive anti-slip matting.

Tattu = Gens Ace, one of the most highly regarded lipo brands around, they are decent batteries. Hobby RC's own brand batteries are made in the same factory.

Had a test today and very impressed so far. At cruise speed good flight times , when punching the throttle loads of power.
The price is reasonable I thought at 13.90 each.

Waited a while for this, somehow they forgot to send it first time but once I messaged them they then realised and gave me a partial discount and threw in some rotorx props.

Twitch 109mm frame from uniquefpv supports 3" props.

Should be a fun and challenging build!

Can't wait to put the 1407 3800kvs on this haha



Oh and a new wismec rx200s boxmod as my old one had finally given in.

I did :laugh: they ticked all the right boxes for me (graphene but light, good size, great performance) and my mate was getting some too so I added 4 to his order. Just cycling them now, I'll report back once I've flown them. I need to stop buying lipos though, it's getting out of hand..

They're good buddy. Similar to the Turnigy graphene's, but a lot lighter. I think the Turnigy graphene's just have the edge in regards power though. I had a collision with my mates plane, his prop caught the lipo and it went up in smoke while I was 100ft up. Managed to land and get it off the quad before damage was done but it was pretty epic :laugh: It burned hard for a good few minutes! Video incoming..

Cheap Aomway 5.8 antennas arrived yesterday.

Ah not too far then, sounds good! at the fly in we will have a generator on the go. We often fly in up to 15mph winds but its usually not enjoyable so as long as you know that its weather dependant and the calmer the weather the better then you're more than welcome  ~~

Mostly some stuff for my FPV installation.  A Runcam Swift camera, Quanum Elite VTx, various gauges of wire and a pair of straight and curved tweezers.  Oh, and a silicon battery case, because it was cheap.

What's the point of it really though?  The batteries don't really fit, it doesn't help the LiPo stay in place on the quad (the anti-slip mat already does that), it makes the battery too big to go inside a rectangular fire proof bag, and it just looks naff.  It was 16p though, so I thought I'd order one to try.

Slightly disappointed that the baro is on the top of the board as it would be easier to secure foam over it if it was on the underside.

Also a bit worried that the USB connector is an an angle (looks like the production issues the Mini had still haven't been ironed out completely)

Keep an eye on space cowboys shop on armattan productions.

He's the original designers and he's up to version 2.1 in all sizes!

As there is no armattan warranty your just as well buying it from him direct, slightly longer wait as it's cut to order.

They do look really bright guys!

What's the main purpose of those tiny LED's for your individual quads?  Is it for l.o.s location at long distances on the P3, for example, or something else?

for me its to help with orientation and just to be able to see where it is, the P3 lights are not very easy to see unless its directly overhead

Shame the OSD module wasn't in the delivery today (when it should have been!).

Well, looks like I'm a proper berk!  :embarrassed

After I emailed Unmanned Tech, they responded VERY quickly to copnfirm all was scanned out, and that the OSD unit was put in the hex frame box. A quick double-check uncovered the unit sandwiched between the main body sections.

So, I've now got the OSD module too!!  :laugh:

Simply so that I know the orientation of the quad, I see the light I pull back on the stick to bring it home, I fly fairly high to take stills and my eyesight is not what it once was.

On its maiden voyage this evening I soon realized how fast planks are , after not flying them for many years.....ballistic speeds lol crashed a few times , on its third prang ripped one of the wires clean out of the motor.
So that was enough fun for one evening, will slap another motor on it tomorrow,,,,,go to a bigger field and practice some more  ~~

Just get yourself up a bit of a bank and do glide tests before you power the motor up, when it flies straight and flat try a bit of power but be aware that it might dip downwards or upwards depending on how the motor is mounted.

WARNING WARNING WARNING - PLEASE READ!!!

I will put this elsewhere as well, but since they arrived today.................

I pre-ordered two of the new EACHINE EF-01 5.8GHz AIO FPV Cameras.

These arrived today. First thought is that with their metal case they are much more robust than others but feel quite heavy (not weighed yet)

The important point is that EACHINE have used reverse polarity on the connection!!!! 

The Camera comes with a socket which is pretty much the standard for most small leads and batteries. It also comes with a plug lead with exposed wire ends which IS colour coded red/black correctly for the camera (but the reverse of normal!!!)

It would be SO easy not to take account of the markings on the case and reverse connect it, heck, you can even plug a 150-200mAh 1S EFlite/etc battery direct into it........reversed!!!! 

Reach for that ready made extension lead you have in stock to run it from a 1S cell and it'll be reversed.

NO, I'm not about to connect it to see if its reverse protected, I'll leave that for others, and I suggest you don't try!!



Easy mistake and potentially costly if not paying attention.

I don't care what the weatherman says cos if the weatherman says it's raining, you won't hear me complaining...

Edit - just read BR's post above and I used the stock cable, although I did check. When you remove the case the polarity is marked on the pcb.

Building a new quad (FlexRC Owl)
You lucky beggar. I've been eyeballing them frames for what feels like a century, But I just can't warrant the price, + postage, + possible import duty just for a frame.

I've been so interested in this frame concept that I've been doodling out a few ideas for a DIY project......


(https://s31.postimg.org/6uhxlfsuv/20160805_094311_1.jpg) (https://postimg.org/image/6uhxlfsuv/)

This one was scaled for 3.5" cut down 4 blade props and the motor spacing was done so that their was just enough room for a Naze32 and PDB to sit in the middle. The front (At the right of the picture) would have a little Eachine 1000TVL CCD cam sandwiched in with double sided foam tape top and bottom and a VTX mounted vertically at the back. The battery would have to sit on it's side on top, and even then it would still partially obscure the "Air Ducts".

I think it's viable. If no other alternative frames turn up soon I may get some 4mm plexiglass and make a proof of concept frame at some point (4mm so I can radius everything with a router to loose weight, But not loose a huge amount of strength).

Anyway, While I was writing this the postie lightly rested a knuckle against the door, and was just about to write out a "I was here, But you weren't" card and run when the dogs heard him. So, I got a parcel !

It had 8x Racestar BR2205 motors (4 CCW and 4 CW), 2x FS-iA10 receivers, And a couple packs of 3D printed 10 degree angled motor mount wedges in it. Heard really good things about these seriously cheep motors, So I thought I'd give them a try.

If you order it from Helipal.com  (http://www.helipal.com/flex-rc-owl-fpv-quadcopter-frame-for-indoor-and-outdoor.html) it comes from HK rather than the US; and they put a low value on Customs form you should avoid customs (and high postage cost) - took about a week to arrive.

Not bad. With postage it's still going to be around 65 notes, But that's a lot better than the 100 and something it would cost to get direct from Flex RC.
It's out of stock at the minute, SO at least I get a little cooling off time before deciding if I can really warrant adding ANOTHER quad to the build cue. :)

Post van screamed to a stop this morning as I was sweeping the front and the two posties passed over my mail inc a plastic bagged object. 

They then pleaded to know what it was in the bag, apparently they'd been taking bets on what it was round the sorting office ............

Nobody had got it right..it was a Hyperdog multi tennis ball cassette catapult.

So then they asked what dog I had...........................   "NO Dog".............. Boy did they look confused................  ;)

They then gave up, so I had to tell them it was to "dissuade" the grey squirrels from eating the bird food for my wife.......and for knocking down tree'd models.  ::)

I have one of those, landed that more times than anything, really teaches using the last energy to safely get it down.
Small word of caution the carbon fibre fuse is not the strongest thing so mine is large part glue now.
Try not to snag the wing with the launchpeg on anything at speed as the whip seems to do for it.
I wish I could get another fuse as the wing is not bad but adding weight with glue drops the potential.
I have one of the larger DLG's (cheap in sale) but have not had the guts to put it together and give it a go yet.

I ordered a couple of them as well (On preorder at £21.50ish each it seemed rude not to. :) ). I think mine are in the UK now as the Royal Mail tracker has changed from saying it was an unknown number to "Royal Mail Signed For items are only scanned when the item has been delivered", So I'm assuming that they're at least aware of the existence of the parcel now.

Nearly forgot… and this epic charger.  Horizon Hobby's Dynamite Prophet Sport Quad 4 x 100W AC and DC charger and balancer.  So far I'm well impressed with it though it needs a few leads (on order) to test it fully.

It's so handy basically having four 100W chargers that can be run off the mains directly, as well as DC power at the field.  It'll save so much time as I can now charge different sized and specced batteries at the same time.

And its all aluminium construction is rugged and solid, and it stays nice and cool during charging too.

Two cans of Plasti-Dip to spray my Inductrix frames, Blaze Orange and Blaze Yellow (what we call flourescents). Claimed to adhere to the flexible plastic used.  Have already done a new still in pack spare frame Orange.......  looks OK  :cool: ...........will swap the parts over and then clean the grass stains off the most used one and if the orange stays on OK I will paint that Yellow for the other one

The LEDS on the frame help to locate when wishes exceed skills but when they disappear into the greenery in bright light, it's a lot more of an issue to locate.  (They are a bit small for a recovery buzzer and my wife won't get up at 05:00 to "spot", damn inconsiderate I call it................!!  :laugh: )

Should have went for their colour flip or glow in the dark range as they would look even better on an Inductrix than the fluro stuff :)

Sadly I can't buy the spray version as they won't ship them to Belfast (and it's almost 20 quid per can buying from Dublin)

Their tinned stuff is fantastic too

Well the white was too much for me to cope with so I dug out the self-amalgamating tape.

Easy to add, easy to remove and no adhesive to pull anything off

I did check around a few other forums and it turns out a lot of people use it and removes the need for cable ties too.

Interesting approach, Kilby. How does the tape fare under usage? I've used it in the past for other jobs (not models or flying), but it always seemed quite delicate and easy to tear if it gets a nick or anything.

Hobbyking Dynamo (red and yellow)

They caught me with the super offers again.
That Dynamo is a nice bit of kit, can't work out if I am going to power it yet, I bought a motor with it but might just hand/bungie launch for a bit, pity there are no decent slopes on my doorstep.
Will have to rob the servos from my DLG as the cut outs are for small 5g servos and I don't have spares.

Its been fine in the past but I do keep an eye on it.

You could add a thin layer or regular tape to stop it splitting if you worried about it.

Just the prospect of adhesive being stuck to ESCs and solder joints disturbs me

The best looking motors I've seen hope they perform
As well as Thay look
And the packaging is the best I've seen as well
Three spair prop nuts three spair serclips and washers
With every motors well impressed

Ps on closer inspection two motors have the spair serclips
And washers missing one motor pack has two lots of extra
Screws .
Out of 5 motor packs two were right prity poor I think

PPs there all wrong but what would you expect these days
I've been given 5 ccw motors instead of the 5 cw motors
Not happy but as there are 3 prop nuts with each motor
I'm going to keep them
I think radioc take the mick at times and the motors are two pounds or more cheaper at makitbuildit I only bought them from radioc because Thay full filled a guarantee on a frame I had bought.

A pair of Tarot Direct Drive Retractable Landing Legs for the DJI F550 arrived today.  Surprisingly light weight and high quality build.  I haven't powered them up yet but from what I'm seen so far I'm impressed, especially for the money.  £28 from GoodLuckBuy's eBay shop!

Also got some more liquid electrical tape and a load of 1mm slitting disks for carbon fibre cutting (an upcoming project).

I did notice a few complaints regarding the DYS Red Bottoms, however I don't know if it's only one or two people but you may want to check here, as there may e some play in the motors (right from new)

So check accordingly rather than hearing rumors after fitting them

A Loca8tor tracker (as tested in latest RCM&E) and two tags.  Works well to 30m with buildings in the way and 60m with trees and undergrowth.   Cricket game was going on at my test venue so I couldn't try the pure line-of-sight range.  Never mind, flying tomorrow at a different Rec.

TipOfTheDay: don't just pull out the battery insulation tags, clean the contacts too.  It took me several goes to get one of the tags to bind to the locator.  On the +Side: instructions written in real English, and illustrations in colour.  On the -Side:  the thin water-proofing O-ring comes out too easily and is next to impossible to get back in.  But we don't fly in the rain, so I don't care.


Oh, a Several of RPis

spent the last 2-3yrs happily using my radiolink 6ch transmitter to fly everything Ive built (which is a fair few), originally only bought as a fill-in tx but its reliability and surprisingly strong signal and range has just kept me happily muddling on, plus its simple approach meant I didnt have to learn to much about the radio system in specific. finally got a little fed up of having to order the proprietary RX's from China whenever I was building a new frame and ordered this, which turned up this morning.

opened the box and my first thought was......."uh-oh, Im gonna have to finally start getting to grips with all these radio related acronyms Ive been avoiding for so long" :(, that was swiftly followed with "ok ok its 8-9ch.......whys it got more switches than flash gordons dashboard!", something tells me its gonna be a while before Im confortable with it :sweating:

Two red jst to Walkera times 3 leads, but not parallel, series with balance port. OK you have to have a battery in each socket, but at least the charger should properly fully charge each cell to a balanced 4.2v state. And I have at least nine or a dozen out of my set of twenty cells to charge after a session.

Flysky i6s from good old Hobbywow - 10 days from order!!!

I like the look of your new TX Darrell.  :cool:  Touchscreen and functions at such a low price is quite impressive!  What's it like to use?  Does it feel nice in the hands and does it perform well?

I got the Turnigy one Darrel The TGY-I6s which on the reverse says it is a FS-I6s but it will not use the new firmware update :( but on the upside mine did come with the s-bus receiver and the I-bus receiver so I will wait patiently for either

hobbyking to release a firmware update or
someone hacks the tgy to accept the FS update :D

Not used it yet but updated the firmware and had a look at the new menus. It looks good for multirotors and ok for fixed wing, it feels comfortable and has some nice features - will report more when I get to use it. I have other distractions at the moment.

A 2.5mm GoPro style lens to try out. Just screws into the hs1177 case apparently. Well no two cases are Likw it would seem and I spent ages trying to un screw the lens after I over tightened it! Couldn't get it close enough to the sensor to focus. Tried a different case and it's fine! Haven't flown it yet, but it'll be interesting to compare.

4x EMAX 2204 motors!  :wack0

Got them on eBay for a crazy price. The seller has sold lots of these and a near prefect rating, so was happy to take a punt. UK stock, so arrived 2 days later.
Opening the jiffybag I was impressed that the packaging at least looks genuine with little scratch-off security stickers. I was half expecting fakes or somethng that fell off the back of a lorry.

They still might be clever fakes, but as these are really common motors it seems I suppose the price could be for real.

Proof of the pudding is going to be in the flying I suppose... roll on end of work day!

Sure. I want to do a little more checking before I do that. Don't want to promote the bay guys.
I'm having a little trouble finding where to validate the sticker. The URL on the sticker is NOT http://www.emaxmodel.com (http://www.emaxmodel.com) so I'm a little suspicious. Though on the emax site, I AM seeing the same company name on one of the product shots. TBH, those stickers look too EXPENSIVE for a faker to produce for a TINY bit of profit.

Taking one out of the box, the quility looks good. Nice machining, crisp printing on the bell.

Hate it when stuff gets held up for days or even weeks by C&E. They can take an age to get round to checking imported goods. And then you have the release fee to look forward to from the courier company who charge £10 odd for forcing you to complete the customs payment via their payroll department. The swines.

You should all be careful. Being postal workers doesn't mean they can's be RC flyers, and they could also be members here !!!! :o

I learnt the hard way that you shouldn't call Royal mail staff "Lazy thieving lazy conniving lazy useless lazy ba$tards who prewrite red cards to quietly slot through your letterbox for bulky parcels because the lazy ba$tards don't want to do their job and carry it around their route" on an open forum. They get real shirty about stuff like that. :)

As a side note, Here's a couple of interesting little facts.......
Did you know that Royal mail quietly acknowledge that they actually fail to correctly deliver 2.5% of all the letters or parcels they're entrusted with? That doesn't sound that bad until you realise that it means for every 1000 items we pay them to deliver, 25 of them go AWOL. They also reserve the right to auction off the stuff they haven't been able to deliver........ So what incentive do they have to actually go out of their way to get your stuff to you ?

I'm not saying that an unscrupulous posty, When faced with one last letter that's addressed to go way out in the sticks, Far beyond all the other deliveries he/she has on them that day, Could possibly be tempted to spit on their finger and smudge the address beyond being readable, And thus have to return it to the post office instaid of doing the long round trip to deliver it, Or maybe "accidentally" drop it unnoticed somewhere when pulling another bundle of letters out of their bag/cart, Or even "accidentally" post it to the wrong address earlier in their route........ But that 2.5% makes you wonder doesn't it. :)

my previous posty hated all animals.

he proudly bragged about having bought a ultrasonic dog&cat deter-ant gun, laughed like a loon when he said he'd chased one of the neighbours dogs around its own front garden with it.

he saw my bengal sat on the fence and eagerly offered to display its "effectiveness"

took aim

pressed button with grin on face

cat looked at him, licked its own bollix nonchalantly,then jumped down, walked past us both and sodded off upstairs for a kip.

I did try not to laugh....for about a second.... then just ****** myself laughing at him, 40 odd quid he paid....still makes me laugh now as he kept aiming and pressing as the cat just sauntered past his own feet

I used to import from the US and never once did I get hit for import :S It took 4 days from dispatch of order to the delivery from the far east if I was willing to pay Air Freight it took 6 days to my front door I had my own clearing account through a import agency did not cost that much and not once was it charged :S
now I order some props from a eBay supplier in Portsmouth(bloody liar Shenzhen they came from) Took over 3 weeks to arrive and just glad they did not charge me duty on a £1 purchase lol

A cheap all in one FPV recever/Screen, A couple of TX screen mounts, A few little dip switches to see if I can make the "Cut wire for 600mhz" VTX's a little more user friendly, A handful of buzzers, One of the Sony cam "OSD controller boards"....... and 3x Eachine E010 toy quad !!!!

These little Blade Inductrix clones were on presale on BangGood, and what can I say, They were cheap and I was in a bored "Click happy" mood when I noticed them. :)

First impressions are that they're not a bad little toy. The FC/RX board is very different to the Inductrix, and the motors are a little gutless (If you're intending to "Whoop" one of these you'll be wanting to get some hotter motors in it..... And hoping the extra draw isn't going to burn out anything on the FC board. :) ), But it's really stable, And with the ducts it can bounce off everything without breaking props. So that's one for me and a couple to set aside as Crimbo presents for my sisters daughters sproggs (Sh1t, That makes me feel old ! :o ).

Edit:- It only took 2 batteries through it before I cracked and fitted a naked Eachine EF-01 cam/VTX to it. It's sluggish as hell now and only get's about 1:30 of flight time....... So I've already ordered some better motors and batteries. :)

Some Panasonic 18650 batteries so I jump on that particular bandwagon.

I've been vaping for three and a bit years now, And most of the more interesting mods (The bit the atomiser screws on to) run off 18650's, So I've had to learn a few things about them to keep from having them go "POP !!" at me.

If you're new to using 18650's in high load devices, Just remember that (Like LiPo's) they're not all made equally. It tends to be that the higher the mAh rating the lower the C rating. Some unscrupulous ba$tards pretty much rewrap any brand or quality of cell they can lay their hands on in flashy heat shrink sleeves that say bull like "4500mAh/30C (I SOOOOO wanted to name and shame at this point, But decided that it's best not to risk causing any legal issues for the forum owners. :) ). These cells are usually 1600 to 2500 mAh and 10 to 15C, They cause all sorts of problems for vapors because some of us (We refer to these people as "Cloud chasers". :) ) push their kit right up to the limit, If the battery supplier's lied about the specs as dramatically as some do, Then they could be 2 or 3 times over any safe limit they thought they had.

If you're looking for good high discharge cells that have minimal voltage sag under load, Then Sony US18650VTC5's are the current king of the hill with their 30A continuous and an almost car starting 60A "burst" (10 second or less) discharge rate, But because they're top dog (And say "Sony" on them) they're priced at a serious premium. If you don't need that quantity of oomph to get your quad in the air, Then you could do a lot worse than go for the Samsung INR18650-25R at half the Sony's price. They have a 22A continuous and 35A burst rating.

Thanks for the info. They're actually to power my goggles so the current load is tiny, but I am aware of the rebranding issue and it's pretty clear to me that a lot of sellers are just stocking old laptop batteries. As I'll be connecting in series the main thing I need is 2 batteries with identical capacities. Will see how we go.

I had noticed the link between these batteries and vaping and wondered what it was all about! Is there anything that people won't try to mod?!!

I'm sitting here at one of the computers I've built, Using a mouse that I soldered an extra long USB cable into, and vaping on my trusty old kit that consists of a home made variable voltage/wattage mod (SX350 control board and 6x 750mAh LiPo's in parallel, All in a modified alloy Hammond hobby case) and an atomizer that I've put together with parts from 3 different ones to get extra e-liquid capasity (The e-liquid's also a menthol blend I make myself. :) ).

So no, Haven't found anything I don't feel the urge to mod yet, But I'll keep you posted if I do. LOL !

BNF is bind and fly so if there's a reciever inside already just bind that to your radio set,if not bind the reciever with the radio and fit that inside your quad.the fc (flight controller) wires fit onto the reciever wire 1 to pin 1 etc till all wires connected.youtube vids galore to bind them Rx to tx (radio set)

Well, so far, naff all!! But I did get a text message telling me that they attempted to deliver it, and that a card has been left, detailing what must be done to retrieve the package.

Oddly, I had been up for a good hour before the delivery attempt was made. I even saw the big, red Parcelforce van outside my house, stationary for a good 20 seconds or so, before it pulled off.

No doorbell, no knock, no card, no parcel  :angry:

I even paid extra to get the bits here today.... I'm wondering if my hex build will ever be finished...

YAY!! Parcel force came up with the goodies!! It was our usual driver, and he didn't call earlier because he knew we've got 2 young kids and he thought we were all asleep. He had every intention of calling back later, but his deliveries are computer-controlled and the only way he could skip the drop off was to pretend that he'd tried a delivery. What a nice bloke  :smiley:

Anyhoo, I set him straight, so he know's we're up before 6am most days!

Here's my new ZYX-M FC and a couple of Graphene 5.2Ah 3S 15C jobiess!

Ooh, these are nice boxes. They even give Apple  run for their money!

Not sure... I've not tried setting fire to them yet....!  :rofl:

Joking apart, they just look like felt bags. I suppose you could use them to transport batteries inside your fire-proof battery bag (which I know EVERYONE uses, right??). But I'm sure they're not fireproof, sadly.

A selection of stuff that's dropped onto my door mat over the past few days.  Been too busy to post it until now.

First up is my new multi-rotor and heli pad.  I flew the Phantom in a field a few weeks back and the dry straw and dust that it blew everywhere was worrying.  I looked about for a suitably large, strong and portable take off and landing pad, but came up short.  Everything was either too flimsy, too small, non-portable, or too expensive.  So I decided to try a collapsable photographers light reflector and a set of T pegs, and they work a treat.  It collapses to about a fifth of it's original size and fits into a snazzy carry case.  It's strong and generally doesn't need the pegs.  But if it's windier than 15mph I can plonk 5 or 6 of the pegs around the reflectors hard outer rim and hold it firmly in place.  I grabbed a cheap but cheerful tent peg removal tool too, just to complete the set and make life easier.

[attach=1]

Secondly all my batteries arrived.  4 x 5200mAh 4S Multistar LiPo's for my f550 Hex build, and 2 x 2200mAh 3S Fleureon LiPo's for my Walkera Runner 250 and similar quads.

[attach=2]

Then some more of the parts for my f550 hex build finally turned up.  A connection rail kit to hang the Tarot gimbal and a dual battery platform that attaches to the rail for running 2 x LiPo's in parallel.

I've been trying to buy some short length high quality XT60 to 4mm Banana Plug charging cables.  Turns out it's a far harder job than I ever expected as most of the sellers that advertised 12AWG or 14AWG actually sent me 18AWG etc.  Friggin' annoying.  Hobbyking sell 14AWG 30cm cables, which are definitely decent quality (and I bought one of), but I finally found exactly what I was after: 4 x 12AWG 20cm long cables for my Dynamite 4 x 100W Prophet Sport Quad charger.  An Amazon seller sent them after I actually bought 14AWG 30cm cables from them.  Go figure!  They're a perfect fit and fantastic quality.

Got 4 x Balance Boards to go with the charge cables, a parallel lipo battery adapter, and also picked up some 4S balance connector clips and a pack of cable ties.

[attach=3]

Finally, I got 2 x power switchable VTX's delivered (forgot I'd ordered them separately) from bang good.  A lovely metal 3 Musketeers 25/200/600mw VTX and an Eachine E1526 25/200/600mw VTX.  Bit miffed that banggood offered a supposed discount to pre-order the Eachine VTX, but now it's in stock it's already a couple quid cheaper than the pre-order price.  It's not the money that's an issue, it's just the principle.  Anyway, it looks good. ~~

It was an FrSky XSR receiver and an XT60 (attached to 10cm of wire)

I have a lot of XT60 connectors but no heavy cable.

Had to buy an XSR as the X8 receiver always ended up with the paddle antennas not having anywhere to mount where the props wouldn't destroy them (irritating)

My QX90 has arrived  :frantic: it's going to be a fun weekend

Mine turned up 2 weeks back. You're going to love it.
It's not the last word in high powered flight, But it's got easily enough punch to get you out of trouble. That little F3 style board works great too, For indoors with stabilization on it's got a really locked in feel and it's a doddle to fly FPV at speed around the house, Outside in acro mode I find it a bit of a handful though. The included VTX/cam's pretty good. It doesn't handle big contrast ranges to well, But for indoors the signals strong enough for me to be buzzing all over the house from any room without any significant video break up.

For me, having limited time away from work that correspond with good flying weather, this style quad ticks SO many boxes it's unreal.......... So today the postman brought me (Ah, Yes, I'm back on topic at last. LOL !) a QX80 to go with my 90.

As this one comes in kit form, I'm tempted to build it with one of the sets of Chaoli CL 820 motors I bought to go on the 90, But the other half of me wants to know what the standard ones are like before upgrading (Choices choices. :) ). I'll try to get this one put together some time this weekend to see if it's at least as capable as the QX90.

I did this mod a few weeks back and it is much better. It's as close as your going to get to having peripheral vision in FPV!

Would imagine so, fits hs1177 and swift, think the sky uses same diameter, I was using a 2.5, gave a nice balance of bigger view with no distortion, hoping to take it out and throw it around in a bit, see what this is like

Oh hang on I thought you were making a pun on me saying 'peripheral' (as in TV stuff, HDMI, SkyPlus...)  :roll eyes:

The only thing I found with this lens is that the thread is a little longer than a 2.8 and you have to screw it in further to focus it. One of the HS1177 cases I had just wouldn't let me screw it in far enough but the spare ones from surveil zone are OK so if it doesn't fit just order one of those.

Screwed in less on the swift than the standard 2.8 and much less than a 2.5, go figure.

Hmmm. It would appear no two go pro lenses are the same - unsurprisingly! I actually got mine stuck in the first case I tried, it had to go in that far. When I tried to unscrew it out the lens started to disassemble so I was l pleased when I managed to persuade it out safely with needle nose pliers.

Only had about an hour of flight time on mine so far, But they haven't blown up yet ! :)

I've got a couple of sets of "Chaoli CL 820" motors to replace the originals when I feel like it, So the chances are that the stock ones won't actually get to the point of failure before they get switched out.

Parts arrived over the last week or so but finished putting it together this evening - a long life battery for my goggles. 2x18650 3400mAh LiIo cells in series, a push button lipo led charge indicator and an 18650 battery holder. Soldered a balance lead and barrel connector on, taped it all up and so far so good.
It's based on the fatshark battery mod that is popular but I didn't fancy soldering the cells so just bought a case. Also, be aware that not all 18650's are what they advertise in mAh - there's a lot of fakes/used cells out there.

20 is quite a lot but for £2.50 or whatever they were good value,on top that I lost the 250 strap couple days ago due to lipo giving out,not quite as good as the hobby King it had but reasonable quality.

All in all a realy good bargain.

The diatone 150 lizard frame I got is realy nice,machined well,will make a great frame in case my atom has a failure somewhere.

Got some more prop guards to go on my brushed micro quads, a spare all in one brushed f3 FC, and a couple of prop pullers.

I hate to admit it, but I'm enjoying the whole indoor micro FPV flying thing more than buzzing my 250's about outside !
I think it could be because with the prop guards I can chuck these little bu66ers around the house at stupid speeds, And WHEN I crash (not "If") the worst part of it is having to get off my 4rse to go put it back the right way up or fish it out from behind something.
If I'd crashed my 250's as hard as I've been pranging these sub 100mm beasts they'd have all reverted back to kit form !!!! :)

I'm not sure it says 'Yoppa.' It looks cyrillic to me, but the 'Y' and the 'a' characters aren't right. Closest I could get was 'Gorrl'... Which still says "don't eat me" to me!  ::)

That's interesting. I've never notice something arrive from bg with evidence that it originated in China but got sent via the Netherlands using their postal service.  But maybe that is what they do sometimes?   My experience has usually been if it comes from China (with china post stamps on it) it takes 3-4 weeks, if it comes via Netherlands postal service it takes 5-9 days.   :hmm:   That's got me wondering now!   :smiley:

That much stuff going in and out of China and big ports like Rotterdam it's simply mind blowing staggering!

They probably have container ships size of oil tankers taking 2-3 days to get to Holland then distribution network to send stuff all over Europe and Britain that it's cheaper for them rather than using a home grown courier.

Or they actually do have a company/warehouse that imports their goods and courier distributing under the Banggood name.

Has anyone else been charged import duty on any item that's come via NLPost? I never have, which is odd if the item has come from China. I've bought a number of items advertised as being sold from the BG China warehouse costing over £150 which turned up sent using NLPost. The packages didnt suggest they originated from China, and if they did they should have been charged import duties by customs. If they did originate from China I'm definitely not complaining!  :laugh:

I would also suggest using proper leaded solder whenever possible, it is considerably better and the bonus is it's easier to work with and requires a lower temperature

Yes, I have a reel of leaded solder that I've had for years. At the rate I use it, it will be passed down to my children.

Despite my constant whining that I'm unable to grasp the concept of flying I still can't help myself.

Today sees a new member of the fleet.

Tarot 130, 4 x 550 Lipos and 6 sets of Props.

If you look up Optimistic in the dictionary... that's me that is. The likelihood of me flying 1 battery is slim to nowt. 4 is just Pie in the sky. Who am I kidding?

Still, just look at how cute it is.

I have more fun building than flying so it's a mystery why I've just blown £200 on a ARTF micro that will probably be a WNF (will never fly) micro. Nurse, can I have my medicine now please?

You'll need ESCs with the 390 driver chip for 2600kv motors on 4s. I'm using HK's Raptor 30a 390 ESC's and they've been great so far. Under £10 each and UK stocked, too.

Not to mention good lipos, I run xnova 2206 2500kv and zmx v3 2206 2600kv both with aikon 30a SEMF ESCs and they eat 1500mah 4s lipos  when you open the throttle, also would be careful of over propping 2205 2600kv, they will struggle for torque on heavy 5 inch triblades on 4s making their battery consumption worse still without any power benefit

Yes, But you really need to upgrade the battery and motors if you're FPVing it. The stock setup WILL work, but only when the batteries still quite fresh. Once the voltage gets down to 3.8 or so it hasn't got enough omph left to make the quad climb.
Without the upgrades I was getting around one and a half minutes of flight with an AIO cam on it, After the mods it was still only about two minutes, but it had a lot more punch for them two minutes.

Sorry to hear that mate bit i see you got yourself sorted  ;)

I got 2 goggle antennas from gav,realy i recommend these to any person reading.i got crappy reception on the stock antenna eachine provides with the ev800 recieved these today and they are bang on,even the way gav parcels them realy shows how much he cares about the product and the service he provides.

To anyone building a quad i can recommend gav for your antenna needs,they are just as important as any other component on your quad.

I got a missed delivery card on Monday. Think it might be my Robocat..

Anyway, I nipped to the Post Office place to pick it up after work today. After a load of messing about in the back, the bloke comes out and asks for my address again. I tell him my address. He asks me if I'm sure. I'm 47. I know where I live. FFS - my 4-year-old knows where she lives. He goes back into the back for a few more minutes. Meanwhile, the queue behind me is growing and a few of the customers are starting to moan about me being a pain. Obviously, this is all my fault for following the instruction to collect from the depot...

The bloke comes back and points out that it's a tracked order and asks if I have the tracking number. "Not on me." I say. "It's in an email on my computer." I'm then told that the postie should have written it on the card. Like it's something to do with me..

Someone near the back of the queue pipes up, "Come on, mate. There's others wanting to pick stuff up you know!" But he shuts up when I wheel round and glare  :angry:

So. I need to give the Post Office 2 more days to find the 'tracked' package languishing in 'the back' somewhere.... :banghead:

Ordered 27/9, only on slow boat free post, arrived today, so quite OK.............

Eachine QX90.

Slight Boo Boo on my part, I run a Taranis though slowly going over to Horus, also have FlySky and DX9.  Indoor stuff is on DX9, outdoor on Horus and FlySky Fs-i6.  Its available on FrSky, FlySky and DSM2.

I ordered it on FrSky intending to put it on Horus with the Diatone ETs................... not realising that the Rx fitted to the QX90 is D8 mode, and the Horus is D16 only. Ugger...............

So its on the Taranis then, and no other Quads are........ Meaning another Tx to lug around........... Ugger again................  If I'd have realised I'd have put it on the DX9.

Have not set up acro yet, but the QX90 is flying, though with HobbyKing props as the supplied hubsan type clones are renowned for exiting (and did in low test hover despite being checked fully on)

Well, it wasn't the Robocat. That arrived the other day, minus 2 motors... But that's another story...

I called in to the depot today, to see what was going on, and they blamed me for not providing the tracking number... Seriously, the bloke said, "I told you to bring the tracking number, so we could find it easier."

I pointed out that the tracking number tracks to my house. The little card, directing me to their depot, helps them locate the goods....

I decided to try and dig out the tracking number when I saw a few posties nipping out with a selection of waterproof grandfather clocks, t*ts for a boar, and a chocolate fireguard!

Not so much from the postie but just a new idea. I'm currently GoPro-less as I've broken two this summer and they're off for repairs. My alien won't take a mobius without exposing it to serious damage so it go me thinking... I took a drill to the top of a mobius case, used a lens extension cable and hot glued the lens back in with up tilt and voila - a go pro form factor mobius! Worked quite well - until I dropped it and damaged the board! Those things are so fragile.

A few people have cut the front of case to angle up so that the body can sit flat on a quad.
As for fragile, I ran one for a couple of years on the top of my cycling helmet, clear tape over the buttons and card slot but nothing else and used that in all weathers, eventually killed it while on a quad that crashed so hard upside down it left a mobius shaped dent in the lipo.

Well it was a new idea for me... I do have that case but don't like the way the lens module is stuck on the front. This way the lens module is still in the case and you can set your own up tilt with a bit of hot glue. May or may not work but I'll give it a try.
Mobius has survived a lot but that's 3 boards I've busted now. All I did was drop it!

Yes the lens on the front loks like a "Break here" and sorry for the negative post first thing, I must get out and quad a bit.
My first mobius (A Lens) had it's lens broken after one too many visits to walls but that was the body that went on to my bike hat with a B-lens so later builds might be less well put together. The A-lens replacement I got was not as solid as the first, the lens not quite so super sharp either so I guess "Mobius action cam" is a moving target and there might be some good vintages.

Pretty sure it isn't the escs mate, don't know anyone else with problems with them, common factor is your quad, PC, cable and blheli install

I figured out how to calibrate them,ocillations came from long screws in red bottoms,fitted shorter screws and oscillations are eliminated.
