  • 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 ~~

Eachine US65 UK65 65mm Whoop FPV Racing Drone
« on: September 14, 2018, 07:46:39 »
Now the colder weather is drawing in I'm looking for a indoor whoop to add to my collection of outdoor quads......Watching Andyrc review of this
 
It's got me interested and with Banggood selling them at this price I'm very interested
https://m.banggood.com/Eachine-US65-UK65-65mm-Whoop-FPV-Racing-Drone-BNF-Crazybee-F3-Flight-Controller-OSD-6A-Blheli_S-ESC-p-1339561.html?utm_campaign=t0016_166930_1310424&utm_content=1081&p=XO2013166930201304K5
My question is this I have a 'Frsky Taranis x9d se' but it's the EU version and watching Andyrc's video I think you can bind it to the EU version but you have to change it to 8 channel on the tx ?
Before I buy this can someone confirm I am correct in that it will bind to my EU Frsky TX ?

The Quad needs D8 mode, as do near all Chinese products.

An OpenTx system of a few years ago will have D8 (go and look). The regulation is not retrospective to older sold units.

Later bought models with EU firmware will not inherently offer D8, as it is not Listen Before Transmit and so not within the legally usable formats for more recent Tx.

There is a menu option under OpenTx to open up D8 mode.

Your call.

i was after a brushless whoop and a lot of these are great when they work but people who have bought them say the FC is rubbish and fails after a while
betafpv do a pro line which is there 1s brushless range which seems to get good review
i decided to get the newbeedrone acrobee, the components used are more reliable, yes brushless motors do burn out eventually but you do have to put about a 100 packs through them before they go and they are easy and cheap to replace

Actually, this crazybee FC has the frsky receiver on the SPI bus and betaflight directly controls the protocol
because of this, you can choose either D8 or D16
Also you don't have to do finger gymnastics to hold the bind button and plug in power... you just hold the bind button down for 3 seconds after powering up

Pretty cool stuff!

That said, I'd still go Alienwhoop Zero for now
