Decided to upgrade from the FlySky Tx and get myself the Taranis X9D SE and some R-XSR receivers. Very pleased with the upgrade.

Also picked up some Graphene 1300mAh packs. They're not a patch on the Tattu R-line, and seem to perform a little less than the Acehe green packs, but more packs = more flights :)

Nice bit of kit, i had a look at the specs and it's impressive. The gyro not so much , extract from description..


Gold fighter version KBAR-V2 using 5.3.4pro software, inherited all the advantages of silver, while the soldiers highlighted emerald green LED lights upgrade to support the official four installation mode while and then the whole solar system exclusively supports four side installation mode, since no wiring installation see someone else's face, so no aileron think how you dress it how loaded!

HAHA yeah love the translations  :laugh:

It seems though that the K-Bar is pretty impressive by all accounts, even if the Chinglish would make you think otherwise, I don't think I have seen anyone slagging it off.

That being said I'm not entirely sure if I will be using it on this build, I may go with a Spirit Pro. I have another K-Bar that I may stick on a T-Rex 450 basher that I snatched off eBay that I am currently rebuilding and see how it fairs on that.

Then I'd better oblige!  I have one K-Bar, and have given up on it. I just was frustratingly totally unable to get it configured correctly to move the servos in the right manner for all Roll/Pitch/Collective directions. Such an obvious and simple part of set up usually!

Bearing in mind I have loads of Helis, flybar and flybarless, and have loads of differing Gyros on them, I don't think it's me. As you say, others seem to think they are OK. In the budget field I like the CopterX ones, the 1000 and the later 2000. Seems they are obsolete now though.

http://www.ehirobo.com/copterx-cx-3x2000-flybarless-3-axis-gyro-system.html

The 2000 had a terrible reputation until they did a firmware alteration, when it became the poor man's BeastX (but IMO better). Problem was they were outputting gyros well after the fix still with the dodgy firmware installed and the info people needed was buried!

Most of my Helis, esp the flybar ones, are still on Futaba FASST which is a dream to set up. By comparison a flybar heli on OpenTX is not at all an easy thing to set up!

That CX-3X2000 looks pretty interesting. I've got a T-Rex 450 that I started converting to flybarless ages back. At first I started trying to make it work with a naze32 clone but couldn't get it to outputs signals recognised by the servos. Then I bought a kbar clone that did pretty much sod all.

I got a bit disheartened by that, chucked it all back in its packing crate, and forgot about it until flybarless systems started getting mentioned in this thread.

Does anyone know if there are any UK stockists of the CX-3X2000?
I need a pay rise........ Though I'd settle for a reduction in the amount of hours I need to work to get the same money.

Much to my surprise, the E013 quad set (with headset) ordered Jan 11th has just arrived!  So, with headset and quad, that has two LiPo in it, but go to website today and when you try to order now post the LiPo suspension:-

“This warehouse can not ship to your location.”

So this one got through just before they were suspended, and the timing makes me wonder if the suspension is actually within  China and not within the UK.

WEIRDLY, on the box it is called (in big letters) “Small Pepper”…though it has to be said that is better than Small Pecker!!!   :blink   :whistling:

Not that I know of, USA with free UK shipping, but not UK.

For info the original problem with the 2000 was that they jacked up the sampling rate hugely, then ran into vibration issues. A really smooth model would be OK, but many were not.  They reduced it back (but not as much as the 1000).  The other thing was that the 1000 was Tx gyro rate settable, and the 2000 had the pots on board to set. Some people thought that they could use both!

I have three 2000's in use, inc one on a three blade "scale" Sikorsky Dragonfly 450 and another on a four blade (Westland Whirlwind) 450.  I have a 1000 on a Hirobo Sceadu with 56 TT Redline engine with a tuned pipe running 25% nitro, Heli head converted to FBL with cheap "align compatible" gear and it has been excellent, NO vibration issues despite the very powerful engine.

I know, but you can't get them in the UK, hence "worth a punt" if this one is specifically wanted.

After digging around one evening I found that the CX-3X2000 was a pretty rare toy these days. Most places that were advertising them (Even the Chinese sites) didn't have any in stock. I didn't want to take a chance on Ebay with a unit from China that may or may not arrive within the 30 to 45 day delivery time window, So I gave up on it and bought one of the TGZ380 microbeast clones for the time being instead. It should at least allow me to get my T-Rex back into a flyable state.


Anyway, Back on topic. I ordered some bits to build another slightly bigger indoor brushed toy quad (Pretty much just so I can use the couple big bags of 75mm blades I bought in error ages back. :) ) And a few bit's to upgrade my QX90. Unfortunately my BangGood motor curse has reared it's ugly head again. I bought 2 sets of the racerstar 8520 motors, But received 1 full set, And 4 CCW motors. :(

For indoors I really like my brushed micros. Not so much power that it's a constant battle not to be hitting the ceiling, And light enough not to break windows/TV/Ornaments/Dogs. :)

Also received the 120 brushed frame for these motors, And a funky little Brushed F3 with OSD. I'm going to fit a tiny CMOS cam and one of the ATX03 VTX's I got on sale a while back. Should be a nice addition to the fleet.

........ A problem just dawned on me while writing this. I haven't got any 8520 prop guards that'll cover 75mm blades........ Bugger ! :)

Apollo7, here are the Handy Headset rules:-

1  Put on Goggles
2. Take off Goggles again and find Transmitter
3. Put on Goggles
4. Look for model in goggles
5. Remind yourself you are not able to see model, remember "It's Behind You"
6. Take off  (NO, not the goggles, the model, dummy)
7. Turn in any direction and lose your lunch
8. Find somewhere to sit down (you didn't bring a chair????)
9. Repeat to 7 until you DON'T lose your lunch.
10 Enjoy!!

Apollo7,

1. The EV800's split apart to use as a screen.
2. Split them and hold the parts in line but apart with the head part fitted on head, adjusting the gap till the focus is best. Get someone to help and when best focus achieved get measurement of gap.
3. Make a sleeve or for now duct tape the two halves at that gap. I adjusted my two main (different to yours) headset like this and they are now perfect for me with NO glasses.
4. As a suggestion for a better sleeve, I used black "Plasticard" sheet sold for modelling railways, etc
