Whats up with the back light?

Early models they were a bit iffey, probably been fixed by now.  I did think of getting one when they first came out  but i didnt find the menu/interface user freindly , i was using a dx8,  being a lazy old fart  i went for the dx9. It realy gets up my nose when you buy something and then have to fart about replacing bits and tweaking it.
This put me off getting a 3d printer, luckily i got one secondhand and the previous owner had done all the mods. ::)

I must admit, I';m a bit lazy. I would love a 3D printer as I know nothing about them, I don';t know much about computers more like a love hate relationship.

But then, you don';t................

I have an early Batch 2 first few months Taranis, and its used several days each week to fly RC and all the time on Sims (just been on DRL).

Its original in all respects, the sticks are still totally slop free, the backlight works perfectly, etc, etc.  I have currently 54 models (inc Sims) loaded to it, it has a Futaba FASST module to use up my old Rx';s. Not had a moments concern with regard range, reliably of link with  Internal or External RF.

I have a DSM2/DSMX DX9, and its no more user friendly or logical to use, just different.

The only thing I don';t like with Spektrum is the choosing plane type and the failsafes. You have to spend a lot of money to be able to program your own failsafes, that" hold last command " its a killer.

Little buggers! yes it would make short work of a pigeon, you can pick up a pretty decent air rifle for cheap if you buy from Europe and you can have it posted to your door legally, unlike if you buy in the UK you have to buy face to face at a gun shop or posted to your local RFD, its a pretty dumb law.

Selecting the a/c type just sets the output channels to their default switches, after that  i swap them around as required.  The manual is writen in american, which is nearly as bad as chinglese. ::)
I';ve always set failsafe to bind position for planks and for multi rotors set it on the f/c. Dont know why its expensive. :beer2:

Eachine ProDVR. I';d got the micro cam/vtx/dvr so thought I';d have a look at the forerunner DVR unit.  Ordered and received in three days (Banggood). I have hooked it up for now from a headset with its output going to a screen.

Works well for such a cheap unit.

They don';t state the pitch and it looks variable to me, about 5030 at base and tip to about 5045/5050 in the middle of the blade

Very rigid, tons of power, good grip, needs a good tune, more prone to prop wash than my normal props, very accurate,

Definatley a heavy prop, wouldn';t put on a 2205 2300 as I would expect a hit on efficiency and responsiveness, gave me maybe 10-20 seconds flight time less than even racekraft 5051

( got the nylon/glass version, on the whole I like them more than I liked the rk when I first tried them, the rk grew on me so I will persist with these and see where I get to)

See above mate, only had a brief fly at lunch time (3 packs) but will keep them on for the mo

Edit: ok spent the afternoon throwing packs through these.
I can certainly fly as fast and as agile as I can with other props (I currently use hq5040v1s, hq5040 s tip, racekraft5051 and sometimes dal cyclones)
Had to adjust the notch filters a little and drop p a couple of points but they hold up,very well in flight appart from:

Prop wash - it isn';t major but can';t get rid of it, certainly more than the other props, I suspect due to the super stiff blades

Efficiency - slightly shorter flight times than the shortest I get with the above (rk) and slightly more voltage sag on punch or fast manouver.

Which leaves me with the question "why?"
Sure they look cool, but there is a cost to using them. I think in summary I won';t be bothering
