  • Bad Raven: Is the issue Turnigy or Turnigy Nano-Tech? I have found that mid-blue Turnigy tend to be low on their stated "C" discharge rating.

  • ched999uk: RaceDayQuads have some cheap but good batts out now. Josh B tested and stats say very good especially at price. HobbyRC have 1300mAh 4S just under £20. Not had luck with Turnigy lipos either!!

  • Reman: Just realised that I hadn't gone through my stored Li-Po's for about a month. I try to visually check them every Saturday, And prod the plugs with a multimeter about once a month. Todays seen 12 more bulging packs go out to the incinerator..... All but one was a bloody Turnigy! Part of me wan't to burn the rest now and just get a load more Tattu packs, But I've spent good money on these packs and wan't to at least get a little more use out of them. :(

  • Bad Raven: Pre MR's I used to buy a lot from J.Perkins. Their website showed all items and stock or due date, go to dealer and buy with confidence. Then they went all "lifestyle" and all the site had were pictures or people. I wasn't after people. I never bought again. Yes, you'd think they'd learn...........

  • ched999uk: Reman sounds like amazon search. I find it ok unitil you want to search by price then amazon falls apart.... You would think both companies would get it right...
    July 15, 2018, 16:54:55
  • Reman: It's strange. The original setup they had about 5 or 6 years back wasn't too bad (Except for them occasionally getting accounts hacked), But they changed it to the last one that was clunky and slow, Now they've replaced that with a flashier one that's also clunky and slow ?!?!?! Most companies learn from what they do wrong. I don't buy from HK half as much as I used to, Mainly because it takes forever to trawl through 100 pages of totally unrelated stuff while looking for something you were thinking about getting when you saw it there the previous week !!!

  • hoverfly: I don't think there is a search button on H/King. They updated the site and forgot to  relabel the search button with  Random bo##ocks..
    July 15, 2018, 09:47:35
  • Bad Raven: Agree - The Search is abysmal!!
    July 15, 2018, 08:40:52
  • Reman: I see HobbyKing's revamped their site again...... Shame they haven't made the search function work any better, Or worked out why the whole site goes slower than a pensioner in a Nissan Micra. :)

  • Reman: How thick is Google? You buy something online, Then for the next week you get targeted adds for the item you've just got?!?! That's the one item you're NOT going to be buying again at that point so it's wasted effort of there part. :)

Emax Babyhawk-R
« on: January 09, 2018, 11:26:53 »
Just received my emax babyhawk-r and wanted to start a topic here for anyone who owns one or is looking to own one




Comes with only 2 sets of props and I've looked, these aren't stocked anywhere so I'll probaby give some trusty gemfan 2035BN quad blades a go as well.


She's a porky but potent!

I've fitted mine with an XM receiver (don't recommend this rx but my XM+ fried so this is temporary) and have hovered it in my tiny flat with a Turnigy 450mah 65c for about a minute.  The motors came down warm and the battery cool.

Now just waiting for time and weather to eclipse  :banghead:

between life and weather, I didn't have a chance to get out to fly this bad boy until now.
I got in a quick 4 packs this morning and they were spent mostly on tuning.

warning - very boring video


I put the pids I ended up with in the video description. After more reading up on PID tuning I think I need to raise the P and I to get it more locked in.  Probably increase the TPA to allow for more P

I know I'm tuning with 3s and 4s packs but I'm trying to get a baseline and then fine tune each in two profiles.

How did you get OSD/Betaflight control.
Did you swap out the VTX?

Oh, another Bhawk-R flyer!  :smiley:

I bought one second hand. The guy I bought it off had put the 2.5 inch arms on with the 2.45 inch props and he did a really good job 3d printing a vtx aerial holder on it too, along with a tpu isolator that keeps the escs off the frame. It flies really nicely and now I'm trying to hit gaps that I was too chicken to hit with my 4 or 5 inch as I'd spend too long repairing them!

um....Kellarly, you bought my babyhawk  ::)

small world. I had to thin out the herd. I loved how the BH flew but the first to go were the quads i didn't build from scratch.

the print is here - https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2857720
and the arms i got are here - http://taco-rc.com/3dpower-x-babyhawk-r-2-5-replacement-arms-kit-s-version-w-3d-printed-parts-for-babyhawk-r/

AnalogKid - The OSD worked out of the box... funny why yours isn't working? Ah, one thing to check in betflight OSD tab is to change it from PAL or NTSC. try one or the other. If you have it set differently than the camera itself, the OSD won't show up.

Hehehe, I thought it might be you, but didn't want to assume.

It's sooooo much fun. Between that and my tiny whoop, I'm getting a bunch more stick time as I'm able to fly in lots more places for longer (cheaper lipos).

@AnalogKid - As Daich said. I tried switching mine over and it went all off.

Hi Daich
I have OSD on my BHR -
I had read there was no smart audio or Tramp with the BHR, which is what allows entry to the Betaflight OnScreen controls for PID tuning as well as changing VTX power etc

From Quadrify's review - http://quadifyrc.weebly.com/reviews/emax-babyhawk-r-136mm-3-inch-micro-quad-review
Emax Magnum 25mW / 200mW VTX. Basic VTX with two most common operating frequencies for a micro. No smart Audio is a minor disappointment but cannel change button is easy to access as display LED.


My BHR isnt flying at the moment (I've given up on the canopy and frame - waiting for a new frame) - But I'll power it up and test whether I can access Betaflight OSD Setup
(Its normally up and left on the left TX stick, and then straight up on the right stick)
 



um....Kellarly, you bought my babyhawk  ::)

smart audio/tramp is only needed to change VTX settings (frequency/power) via the OSD

You can change the PIDs with your tx as long as OSD is working

I think it is just left on the left stick...correct me if I am wrong.

That's incredible - never knew that. Thank you very much

I had it in 'my head' that change functionality was all tied to the VTX somehow.

Just gone back and properly read the Betaflight OSD info at
https://www.propwashed.com/betaflight-osd-setup-guide/

Yep - Its always been there.

I had someone else tune my XJB 145 in the field.
And I've dumped new PIDS in (mainly from well known youtubers like Nick Burns and others) in, via the Desktop/Configurator/CLI.
Just last week, I started to move some of the D Terms out in the field (newbie style - ie no real idea what I'm doing)

This now means I can do the same on the Babyhawk - R
(Waiting from a low cost 4mm ALFA frame from bangood to arrive - fed up with break parts on my BHR (TACO RC arms kept breaking)-

i should really remove that video as the PIDs i ended with are completely different...i think i found someones and used it as a baseline.

if you go 2.5" maybe Kellarly can post the pids from his one as that one flew so locked in it was amazing.
