  • atomiclama: I used the solder ones [link] as I do't have a crimp tool and should be able to reuse the connector if required

  • VaNDAL_UK: Nice one. I'm gonna go for it. just looking for the SMA connectors with the crips as Ive had a few break at the root.

  • VaNDAL_UK: atomiclama: I was pricing up the cable 0.08 copper wire and SMA connectors came out to about £15 and I could have made 5 meters worth of antennas!

  • hoverfly: Betaflight RC1...Interesting  if you go to the O.S.D  settings and then change the font  by lining up the icons in the correct precise order then hit  enter,...... It opens up the  O.C.D.  screen. :smiley:

Quick drone question
« on: June 16, 2018, 14:57:13 »
Hi all, have a simple one to answer. I purchased 4 new motors Emax RS2306 from ebay and they are all cw motors. I was expecting 2 cw and 2ccw but the seller assures me 4 cw will be fine. Is this true?

Thanks all, Atak

Yes. The timing is what controls motor direction. Only difference between cw and ccw motors is the thread on the prop shaft

You'll be fine. Most builds now are like that. It just means you only have to have to buy one spare which then covers you on every corner if a motor breaks. I have several builds like that. They have nylon threads so won't undo. The only time you need to be careful is if you hit the ground with a prop. Sometimes they come loose then but a loose prop make a distinctive sound. You'll know...

Just make sure you use nylock nuts and they are tight and you will be fine.

Thanks Mark.
