Hi there. Im new. Having problems with my tarot landing gear. Its plugged into ch7 on futaba receiver. When i flick switch on transmitter i can hear a faint click on both legs but no movement. My flight controller is a mini px4 with no aux out terminals.

out of interest, tarot vs tbs

out of interest, why would you choose a tbs discovery over a tarot 650 or vise versa
to carry just a gopro ONLY,

is it longer flight time? stability? power?

ive had tarot helis in the past (clone of align) and there quality is good and the price.

Different beasts..
TBS is optimised for FPV..
Tarrot is tall.. can carry a gimbal..  but probably a bit fragile for hardcore FPV.
Both are quads so stability prob the same.. 
Weight wise, TBS is probably heavier..
Flight times.. too many variables.. 3s/4s / Motors / Props.. but would imagine the tarot could be made to fly longer as its probably lighter..
Most people starting off think one frame will do all.. reality is we tend to have different frames for different purposes..
Question for you .. is what do you want to use it for.. and start from there..?

thanks for the reply Jumpy, it is just out of interest for now, but you know what this hobby is like, you start looking at another before finishing the one you already have lol


Britishguy

i would use it for, fpv and thats why i thought the tarot would be better as it might handle the normal british weather a bit easier, even though i wouldn';t fly it if i thought it wasn';t safe

why would the tarot be fragile?

cheers

i wouldnt use it, just land it on the belly.

i sore deans pictures, dont think he uses it either

Sounds like you have made your mind up...


Sorry just don';t think the Tarrot frames is optimum for FPV,  have a look at the QAV 500 frame or the many Reptile style frames on Fleabay..

Key features of FPV frame are:

Wide front arms to get props out of camera view
Wide centre plates for mounting all of the FPV kit
Low centre of gravity
Adjustable battery mounting to get optimum CG (most of them mount the battery at rear of slider arrangement)
Tough frame as when you fly FPV you tend to push the limits
