  • 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

  • Gav: mo miah - wanna swap from immertionRC UHF and try something else on my camera Ship.

  • DarkButterfly: My laminate arrived, the rebuild is coming along ~~

  • 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.

  • Bad Raven: Usng PolyC, yes
    September 05, 2018, 10:13:54
  • 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 ~~

Bit of FPV fun that ends in a splash
« on: November 13, 2017, 18:13:02 »
Hi All,
Fun in the Autumn sun. This setup is my go to frame for trying anything new, the Armattan Chameleon is tough and feels dialled in with the Gemfan Windancer props. With that combination I know the quad will survive knocks and taps allowing more adrenaline and risks.

The Crash - No damage was done to the quad or battery at all, after a full 12hr dry out it performed perfectly without any replacements.

Setup:
ArmattanQuads Chameleon FPV Freestyle Frame
Gemfan Maverick 24A ESC on DShot600
Gemfan 2205 2450Kv motors
Gemfan Windancer 5042x4 props
Acehe Formula 1500mAh 95C 4s Lipo
matek f405-OSD Betaflight 3.2.0
EWRF e708TM3 5.8G vTx
GavAntenna
FrSky X4R Tx
Runcam Swift 2 with 2.1mm lens
GoPro Session 5 1080p@60fps/SV
