Had another negative encounter, it's been a few years since the last one, just an uneducated ******, going on about drones being illegal yada yada yada.    :-/
Still that didn't spoil my flying time, had an absolute blast  ~~

Just had a thought, even with all the crashing I've done, I haven't bought any replacement props in over a year ~~

Just fixed a busted SMA connector on my TBS unity pigtail, it suffered badly in a recent crash and split in two, nothing a touch of the soldering iron couldn't fix  :D

out doing my first open field FPV flying in the quad  and on 3rd battery quad just died in mid air  :confused:
dont think its a program fault with the 2.9.1 as they have fixed that issue
will go through everything as i strip it down as i already have a new frame coming check all my solder joints and wiring
just uploading the video to you tube now vid is a bit jello key chain cam not that great

the before shots from the key chain cam

the more im looking at it the more i think it was a brown out  and the right side stopped first as it landed on an angle and it weighted to land square on its feet
the quattro is only a 3 amp bec will fit the 5 amp ubec on new frame

Ouch is it just the one arm broken ? should only take 10 mins to fix once you have a new arm  ~~

firey1

not sure on motor shaft yet but take 3 weeks to get parts for me
but new X mode alien frame has just left china so should be here in about a week
and ordering 4x turnigy motors to put on new frame
was amazed with the motors that came with the quad unbranded 2212 that i could stop them at 100% throttle just by grabbing the can

I have had orders from china take 4 weeks but the quickest was about 3 - 4 days  ~~
maybe you should stock some spare parts, as its not a case of if I crash its when I crash  ~~

firey1

yeah im getting there for parts and will have 3 spare arms now when the new frame arrives  :rolleyes:

A nasty break....
What version of 291 are you using? I heard R6 still has issues with flight controllers disarming. I just upgraded to R300 because of this.
Allan

firey1

Cheers Allan
been running r300 since it came out
im pretty certain it was due to electrical rather than programming
My new Reptil frame arrived yesterday so have started stripping down the f450 and will go over everything and also fit a ubec 5v on this build and of course a decent video record camera lol
