Ordered a Lizard 105S and just noticed that 4S 500mAh Graphene batteries have been reduced to £6.31 from £15.71 in the EU warehouse https://goo.gl/KTwWxp Delivery on 3 was £1.80ish!

Thought others might be interested?

No but as it's HobbyK I assume it's fine.
I think the BangGood issues is airmail and them historically not following procedures, so they got banned. That's just my guess but BangGood don't seem to be transporting Lipos to UK unless it's the ones supplied with the 'equipment' in the box. Seems mad to me they are allowed to ship Mobula7 with 4 little lipos and a Lizard 105S with a 4S 550mAh lipo but they can't even ship 4 extra little lipos for the Mobula7!!! Mad....

So as far as I can tell HK are fine to ship lipos from EU to UK. 'Shipping' is 7 to 10 days so I guess road transport to UK.

Forgot to say if you buy from UK warehouse batts are £1 dearer and £6 p&p!

If you have a business account with Royal Mail they will send lipos within UK!!! BUT they have to be packaged as RM say and have an emergency phone number on the packaging etc!!! Judging by how many companies use RM to deliver Lipos I guess it's too many hoops to jump through for the smaller suppliers but the likes of HK can afford to do it via RM.

Thanks! Great deal, will pick some up for myself as well
Graphene lipos take a bit more abuse (overdischarging) but weigh a bit more.  my 450mah 4s tattus are 55g, these are 74g with only 50mah more. still great deal though.

Just don't buy anything from their global warehouse. I've had to pay import fees 100% of the time.
EU warehouse is ok for now  :tongue:

Which is odd as you are London and I'm as good as London if tech "Kent", and I have only once paid import from China, and never by Banggood or HKing.

I once bought a very large plane from UK warehouse, it was faulty and they sent replacement, but from China. It was a HUGE box that nobody could pass off as "low value", and replacement was not stated anywhere (though in fact replacement goods are duty liable so its possible to pay double duty for one item). And it arrived no duty charge.

ha! nice one! you're lucky.

in my experience, anything in a large box from china gets dinged.
For the most part though, banggood and gearbest fly under the radar.
but Hobbyking always gets caught, so badly that i don't order from their global warehouse any longer.

I recently got lucky tho...i preordered the Jumper T12 Plus from Hobbycool and in the notes (I always do this) I mention valuing it under $15 and label as Toy Parts.  For some reason they valued it at $25 which cause it to get caught in customs... grrrrrr... but funnily I never got the slip, the box just showed up with a big sticker saying customs need to be paid before delivery :blink ::)

I ordered on the 10th late on though, I got 3s which were cheaper in the uk at the time even with postage. I could do with some more 1s or 2s 300mah but I cant make my mind up on which whooop. Bata75x or Mobula7  :shrug:

I guess mine will arrive soon, not that they are needed urgently as lizard is stuck at Hong Kong Airport. Cheers

From what I have seen/read on Mobula7 vs Beta75x they are both good. Mobula7 has tiltable camera so good outdoors or indoors. The Beta75X has fixed camera, I think it only runs on 2S (only 2 batts supplied) but the frame is stronger than the Mobula7. I also seem to remember a few reviews of the Beta75X that said on dives when you go to pull out it yaw spins or pitches back badly.
I think the Beta75X is more expensive at about £110 vs Mobula7 at £80 with decent charger and 4 batts but isn't available till 25th Nov!

PS I ordered a Mobula7 so I can fy 1S indoors with low camera angle and 2S round the garden  ::)

Unmanned tech had the none lbt version for order a while ago as I got the email reminder. I know the M7 is lighter but I like the fact that the fc, esc, vtx are separate on the B75x  :hmm:

Yes separate is easier should anything go wrong.

I also think the Beta75x has 25 or 200mW vtx Mobula7 is only 25mW I think. Beta also is F4 vs M7 F3 and Beta does Smart Audio I dont think M7 does! Beta75X doesn't come with a charger, not sure if that's an issue for you.

All that said Beta75x is easier and quicker to get hold of  ::) ::)

Hobby King just sent email to say item out of stock, 5 days after order!!!!

Luckily it was the xt30 for making adapters for batteries to plug in to my xt60 charge board.
So looks like ebay for some xt30 otherwise I wont be able to charge new batteries!!!!

True but then adding p&p makes them silly money, found 5 on ebay for £2.99. They are only for charging so quality not too much of an issue  ::)

M7 has smart audio, except for the EU-LBT version which occupies the extra RX with an XM+ so smart audio can't work on the same uart. BUT the smart audio line from vtx is still soldered in  :laugh: so I removed the xm+ and used the onboard FLYSKY protocol and enabled smart audio

All other items you all pointed out are correct. 75x does have all the components separable.
I built a custom 75x (FC/ESC, frame and props) with my own motors,vtx,camera and I found myself reaching for the mobula7 more often.
I have some ideas for the 75x fc/esc for another build :P

I’m tempted to hold off until Emax makes 2s whoop. Does it work out any cheaper building it yourself ?

I have not priced up a whoop style self build but when I priced up a 2" or 3" build it was more expensive than a Diatone 2" or 3" build by quite a bit.  OK so when you do a elf build you can decide what components you want but when you look pre built at least you can usually get lots of reviews to give you an idea of how they perform. With self build there is so much choice it's unlikely that you will find another build the same as your intended build so you are taking a bit of a gamble.

Don't get me wrong I love self building but being on a budget makes me carefully considering the options.

If you can hold out I am sure there will be a good few 2S whoop style quads out very soon.

:o :o https://www.banggood.com/Diatone-2019-GT-R249-95mm-2-Inch-4S-FPV-Racing-RC-Drone-PNP-w-F4-OSD-25A-RunCam-Micro-Swift-TX200U-p-1377959.html?rmmds=search&ID=557870&cur_warehouse=CN Look, wish I held off on the gt r90
The new 2019 Diatone GT's look good and I think they have the same stack as the 2018 GTs that got great reviews. Only thing that has changes is the frame and the vtx but still branded vtx (Runcam vs TBS) so should be good but I would want to see reviews as when they first released the GTs in 2018 they had vtx issues.

Maybe when you get your gt r90 you could not open it and sell it on ebay as it's coming towards Christmas you might even make a profit (after taking off paypal and ebay fees)?
Then you could get a 2019 GT 2", 2.5", or 3"  ::)

Just spotted this https://goo.gl/LdkhJy seems like the 2019 gt 2" with prop guards is cheaper than without!! Not double checked specs but looks good.
Maybe not as it seems to have prop guards as part of plastic frame!!!!!! Who wold fly that indoors! :o :o :o :o :o

Wish I had not ordered my Lizard 105S now, mind you it does have 720 recording so that's a reason  ::)
