  • Reman: Got stuck in traffic yesterday. After an hour I started using my phone (And an OTG cable) to look through the media files on a keyring of my old USB sticks. Found one that had the entire run of "Firefly" on it. I got through 3 episodes before the traffic started moving again....... God, That really was an amazing show.

  • mo_miah: Gav- if its a camera ship then TBS crossfire is definitely what you need, the FrSky has limited channels and telemetry options, TBS crossfire has much better features and more channels to control camera gimbals etc

  • hoverfly: I coated a couple of Slipstreams  a few years ago  It stiffened up the wing nicely .On the down side although it prevented dings when i had an high speed"arrival" it left the resin cracked. and the glass lifted slightly.  Well stuck laminate stiffens the wing and is flexible..

  • DarkButterfly: I'm doing laminate, just put my order in for some, also got some balsa wood for the side parts, had to use a kitchen knife to seperate the foam from the busted wood

  • atomiclama: Thanks, can't decide on fibre glass or laminate. Like the idea of fibre for some reason, don't know why.

  • atomiclama: Anyone fibre glass coat their wings??
    September 05, 2018, 09:30:22
  • atomiclama: @DB well you obviously need a bigger motor and ESC, as flying slower is just not possible.  ::)

  • hoverfly: If you put a couple of coats of Eze Kote on the wing before the laminate it sticks really well ..no lifting.. :smiley:

  • DarkButterfly: If it makes you feel better, I’m going to completely refurbish my falcon Evo with new balsa sides and new laminate ~~

Queries on Wizard, Tiny 7
« on: August 11, 2017, 15:14:06 »
Hello all,
Just a few questions on issues that I';ve encountered, hopefully not too obvious.

Recently brought the wizard and finally had my maiden flight yesterday (Just LOS Angle mode but it was incredible), stock bar a mushroom Antenna. Have a Swift 2 / LED vtx to put in at some point.
Got through 3 batteries without any issues 1 3s 2 4s, on my last 4s battery one of the props came loose so had a guided crash landing with the wizard ending up upside down. After that one of the motors stopped, so I';ve now replaced an ESC with a racestar v1 20a, updated the software, calibrated but the motor gradually picks up speed up to full throttle with minimum throttle input(It did this before i flashed) . I';ve read around and I';ve seen a couple of comments on these ESC';s on banggood about replacing all 4 if you use V1';s as the stock Wizards are now the V2 version.
I didn';t do the reciever setup with the new ESC, is this required for each new ESC? & I';ve only done the betaflight calibration.
Is there a way around this? I have ordered 3 v2s although I';m not to sure how well 4S works with my stock setup seeing how easily 1 ESC blew, I felt I was quite gentle with the throttle and never really tried testing it';s full capabilities. Is it worth canceling this order and ordering a full set of better ESCs? Or can I made do with what I have + the 3 on order from the time being?

Secondly, I';m not currently using my VTX / camera due to me being a muppet and buying the EV800D without properly checking if it was compatible with a glasses user, would it be worth unplugging the vtx for the time being?
I';m tempted to get some fatsharks and some lenses to put in, I';m pretty shortsighted so not sure if this would work. Any suggestions?


Tiny 7

I also recently brought this but haven';t been able to fly it
 I couldn';t get it to bind although I believe I may of actually bound it on the first try -.- I didn';t realise at the time, that when it';s bound it won';t appear on the transmitter like the Wizard, is this correct?
Second issue I had was that it wouldn';t connect to betaflight, I flashed it to the latest version although had to put some pressure on the port to get it to connect to betaflight. That led to two more issues, one the USB port fell off, two the tiny7 decided it would arm itself on battery insert.
Which was fine at first as it was just normal arm speed.. that unfortunately didn';t last long.. it eventually decided to up the ante and try and chop my fingers off by taking off on battery input although it did keep flipping over. All of this without the transmitter being on.
I';ve now got a replacement on the way, could someone please advise me so I don';t create a second tiny whoop death machine. :P


If anyone has any ideas thankyou!
My first post, reads like a meltdown!
