Hadn';t seen that, about time too, I hate putting a Taranis in a small rucksack whereas the small FlySky i6 types are fine.
Just hope it is competitive on price because if FlySky get some more telemetry sensors going like vario, gps etc they will have cornered the value market.
Just to let you know there is a thread on RCGroups forum where a couple of people are working on i6 telemetry. https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?2486545-FlySky-FS-i6-8-channels-firmware-patch%21/page88
It';s still in development but there are screen shots showing gps data on the i6 tx screen!!!!

A pair of FRSKY XM Rx';s can';t believe just how small they are  16.5x10.25 mm

Makes the XSR look totally huge in comparison

none of the xm have telemetry, the xm+ is probably the prefered Rx, the range on the xm is shorter

Agreed but for what this is for (an Armattan Bumper) it should be fine.

No apologies needed mate you weren';t to know what they were going to be used for anything any bigger and I would be going for the XSR or X4r-sb rx';s anyway?

EDIT: This is the worst solder I have ever used. Barely melts at 300c. Simply refuses to solder on a PDB at 450c. Avoid!

A set of Hubsan H501S props (because I tried to FPV it in the woods and lost videosignal almost immediately after the 1st corner of our 250 race track).

think the Hubsan could do with a skew planar wheel antenna upgrade  :cool:

It';s been like a late Xmas for me this week. It';s been a cluster of orders from BangGood that have all been turning up together. So far I';ve received.......

2x MOY RXA2 receivers for some brushed builds I';ve been slowly collecting bit';s for,

4x Flysky X6B RX';s because they were cheap enough and I really want to revisit some of my earlier "Rats nest wiring" builds now I';m getting better at clean installs,

A shed load of various reasonably chunky gauge power wire,

Another 4 Aomway cloverleaf antennas because I found the last few VTX';s I';d bought were SMA and I didn';t have any spare aerials to go on them,

A (Large) handful of prop nuts,

Some FPV cam mounts,

A couple more of the 20A Racerstar RS20Ax4 ESC';s and 6 Racerstar BR2205 motors because I';ve found I quite like my "Built from spares" hex now and don';t want to rob bit';s off of it if I ended up needing them elsewhere,

More XT60U plugs and sockets than I think I';ll ever need,

And a pretty little Liantian LT130 frame because I';d found that my Realacc MM130';s motors were REALLY struggling with the frames weight. Despite being off work with flu today I managed to transfer all the electronics across as a pre wired clump from the 100g MM to the 32g LT frame in about 45 minutes, and it fly';s SOOOOO much better in it';s new home....... And all with only minimal snot on it ! LOL !

I also got a couple of packs of those crazy "Rainbow Rose Seeds" to give to my mum....... Mainly because the pictures of them look like some trippy as hell photoshop job. I just want to see if they can really look like this? :o




A really bad day of flying is still ten times better than a good day at work.

I don';t like how I can';t have stick arming and airmode at the same time. I';m not doing crazy inverted spins or even use the full stick throw the majority of the time so I';m not worried about disarming midair.
