UPDATE 8/4/2015

No need to jump through hoops any more. Horizon Hobby has posted the official Chroma GUI.

I've seen some people comment on the Geo-fence on the new Blade Chroma and how it's putting them off buying since the Chroma Programming software isn't available.

You can change the Geo-fence using software and tools already available. Here's how.

What you'll need:

UPDATE: You DO NOT need the USB-Interface. Based on information from another user I used the USB Cable that comes with the Chroma to connect to the Q500 (or 350QX) software. I had tried this before, but it never seemed to connect. That's because it can take up to 7 minutes for it to connect. Once it does, however, everything works as described. So consider the Blade USB interface OPTIONAL. Also, this means you can skip the whole part about removing the wire cover and messing with the receiver cables. You DO still need the FTDI Drivers.

UPDATE 2: Once you manage to get the software to connect using the regular micro USB cable that came with the chroma it will reconnect in seconds. MUCH easier than dealing with the 350QX cable.

Note: The Q500 Software is also available for Mac as are the FTDI Drivers to use the USB...Continue Reading

Test review DJI E305 Tuned Propulsion system: New definition of the entry level !


In 2015, the former DJI Tuned Propulsion program (meanwhile copied by several competitors) has been completely renewed with E310, E800, E1200 Tuned Propulsion kits. DJI covers all common sizes for Multirotor market now. With the new product line, the DJI Propulsion Laboratory introduced sine- wave technology and 2 way communication even at the entry level. Competitors were left behind.

But what about the popular Flamewheel kits ? Which kit is going to replace the former E300 Propulsion system ?

The answer came pretty fast, when the E305 Propulsion Kit has been announced to define the new entry level : Its brand new 2312E motor represents a significant upgrade over the previous 2312 model. The optimized electro-magnetic system boosts efficiency by nearly 7% and lowers cogging torque, which provides noticeably smoother performance at low RPMs. A newly designed motor base not only provides better heat dissipation, but is also coming with a new advanced hi-tech look. The 420 LITE ESC utilizes the tried and tested square-wave drive architecture, further perfected by DJI engineers. Based on this classic design, the 420 LITE provides simplified functions in a much smaller and lighter package than the E310. Internally, an efficient and responsive algorithm serves your platform with a high level of maneuverability and stability

This sounds great and fortunately for advanced DIY, the DJI...Continue Reading

real easy to fly, plenty of power, added a bit more rudder throw, and she'll knife edge..........if you notice, you only hear three clicks of trim..flew her all morning

Had to remove the trolling motor off the barge so had the idea of using Mr Darby in the stern.
No notch yet but it should be easy enough to make.
Some spring lines are also in order.
Pushing works pretty slick actually.
Love the summertime weather.
Picked up a gps from my nephew. Speed over ground is an easy 2 mph with a bit more throttle if needed.

Analyze on account of this group of data, you can see that the extreme thrust of old style 5045 propeller is 447g within the accelerator range from 0-90%. Our new style 5045BN propeller can reach extreme thrust of 528g within the same accelerator range. This is an obvious change. Within the range of 0-50% accelerator range, the efficiency and thrust is higher than that of 5045, which sufficiently proves the high efficiency of low speed. Within the 60-90% accelerator range, the efficiency is higher than 5045 propeller with the same thrust. Therefore, we can analyze the differences between new style 5045 NB and old style 5045 under the same thrust.
The most prominent character of new style 5045NB is the thrust which is 18% than that of old style 5045. Furthermore, with the same thrust, analysis result has proved that its efficiency is always higher than that of old style 5045 propeller. Please ask if you have any query, I will be patient to answer your questions.

Test motor and ESC
ESC: 20A

Oh sorry we tested the instrument displays the test data is in Chinese. in the edit data into English, the program is wrong. Tomorrow there will be a new set of data to update.

Red Data with Triangles = GF5045
Blue Data with Circles = GF5045BN

Hi Folks, a big one this, iv been looking specifically into Apples devices supported by the Pilot app and thermal throttling and shutdown, i wanted to look into some of the possible reasons and ways around it, looking into it i have found a few conclusions,

First of all looking at Apple A7 devices, the Mini 2/3 iPhone 5S and the Air 1st gen.

Looking at the design both are similar with the batteries located next to the logic board, The SOC on both is located under a metal EMF shielding, this does not seem to offer any substantial heat dissipation, no thermal compound is used and it does not make contact with the SOC directly.

The interesting thing is all of the packages on the logic board are located facing up towards the screen, This means Apple are not making use of the Aluminium shell as part of a heat sink, the second thing with this is heat from the display is also reflected back towards the processors as well.

Ipad Air][/URL]

The A7 SOC , there are 2 versions of this SOC, a different chip in the Air than in the Mini 2/3 iPhone 5S. Its a Duel Core clocked at 1.3ghz in the Mini2/3/5S and 1.4Ghz in the Air.

The A7 in the Mini is a POP setup with the 1GB of ram stacked on top of the core as part of the chip, this is one unit with no metal heat spreader on top. Reading

This is a Basic 6 channel (1-Ail, 2-Ele, 3-Thr, 4-Rud, 5-Gear, 6-Flaps) setup for a Taranis Plus. Your channel order/assignment can be whatever you choose, just change as you wish.

This is the Inputs Screen. I have setup triple rates for Elevator and Ailerons on SE with Low (40%) Rate and 25% Expo on SEup, Mid (60%) and 35% Expo on SEmid, and High (100%) and 45% Expo on SEdown

This is the Mixer Screen showing Channel 5 for Gear - Down on SAup, UP on SA NOTup (i.e !SAup - the "!" means NOT) and Channel 6 for Flaps on SB with Flaps Up on SBup, Mid Flaps on SBmid, and Flaps Down on SBdown. The actual positions of Flaps UP, MID, and DOWN are controlled by Curve 1 (don't freak out, just read on...)
