  • steveo9007: Cheers Atom was just a thought for now as I plan on keeping it well in range until I get comfortable with controls and flying
    December 05, 2018, 21:01:25
  • atomiclama: steveo You can just plug a GPS puck into the FC and get the OSB to display the coords, record the VTX and when things go tits up you have the last known posistion. Whislt not accurate it is a good starting point. Or get the coords sent back by telemetry to you TX which will be more accurate as long as power is maintained to the quad and it is range with the TX. Just some thoughts.

  • steveo9007: Is there a post on here about the 433mhz telem tx ??
    December 04, 2018, 07:56:49
  • steveo9007: ok thanks shaw
    December 03, 2018, 20:31:44
  • shawdreamer: meanwhile the 433mhz telem option I mentioned gives you live fixes in realtime and not "delayed texts"..... plus it doesnt cost you credit everytime you request a gps fix (btw the tags sim card also needs to have credit on it :laugh:)
    December 02, 2018, 20:47:10
  • shawdreamer: and yes that does actually work..... I tried it for a laugh a couple of years ago ::)
    December 02, 2018, 20:45:09
  • shawdreamer: the tags do as you say use satellites to get positional fixes but they dont immediately report those fixes to an App, each tag requires a Sim card (same as your phone) which is used to "text" you the tags position..... in other words you could get the exact same effect by strapping a old smartphone to your frame with the google "where is my device" app installed
    December 02, 2018, 20:44:13
  • steveo9007: doesnt the tag communicate with the satellites and not via a data system, isn't it the user who owns the tag go via data to the app that can locate the tag ???
    December 02, 2018, 18:18:11
  • shawdreamer: plus, alot of the lower end trackers struggle with GPRS and often rely heavily on GSM data instead which is just not worth a sh1te when it comes to pinpointing a downed frame
    December 02, 2018, 16:23:30
  • shawdreamer: most readily available gps trackers are not really suitable for anything smaller than a 400 sized frame as the units themselves are often too bulky for anything smaller and larger frames often already have their own gps setups that can simply be outfitted with a 433mhz telem tx that would report live and accurate info direct to a ground station so there'd be no point in a sms type tracker
    December 02, 2018, 16:22:07
  • steveo9007: anybody fitted a GPS tracker tag to their drones if it gets lost and is need to find it

My first FPV gear, Black Pearl screen and Immersion 25Mw VTX, all tested and working, fitted my home made antennas and what a difference they are to the stock ones even at close range you can see how much better they are.

Thanks to the guys at BYOD

Got these today. 1000mah 4s 25-50c


I guess its only an extra 150mah but was suprised they only weigh 5g more than the 850mah 4s I was using.. They';re not as bulky as the 850s either.

Mini tri is here from Rc-explorer finally! I forgot they celebrate Ascension day over there in that Europe so was delayed by a couple of days - pics later :)

Also - Aluminium arm frame set and some spare CF ones for my acro quad - now thinking about doing a super lightweight build with the CF frame and transferring the 2204 motors to the aluminium armed frame - should help with crash impact.

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:

No just F330, but doubt I would notice the difference.

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

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:
