  • Reman: Like I said, In the past I've had a handful of packs "Go off" at me like fireworks after bad crashes (Usually with RC helis), So it's hard to get that image out of your head while stripping down Li-Po's. :)

  • shawdreamer: the horror stories will always incite worry when messing about with Lipo's but its the same as everything else when working on electronics alike, alsong as your careful and methodical there's very little to panic about, I regularly recycle 4s's with a single dead cell into usable 3s packs, end of the days its alot more economical, safer and enviro friendly than having to bin them....just a pain that the dead cell is NEVER one of the outer cells so you always end up having to strip a good cell off to get at the bad cell before putting it back afterwards, its like dropping toast, it'll always land buttered side down and inevitably covered in pet fur :angry:

  • Reman: Just did the one electrical job that still scares me. I dismantled some Lipo's with knacked cells and built usable packs out of the good cells. I've had packs go "VOOOOOOSH" at me in the past so I'm always slightly scared of having bare lipo contacts anywhere near what I'm working on, But all appears to have gone well and one of them is currently doing a charge/discharge cycle to make sure nothings a miss. :)

  • Reman: My original Dremel Pro made it to 14 years of heavy weekend use (And abuse) before it crocked. Dismantled that but it turned out to be a "Control module" fault, And Dremel made it ni on impossible to get into that without pooching it completely. :(

  • Reman: I did double check it with a metre (Mainly because I knew if I didn't check the polarity this would be the time the manufacturer had gone off script and put the negative in the middle of the coax) and felt slightly cheated because it was only making 19.7 volts. :)

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
