The PDBs arrived in an unassuming grey bubble mailer; inside were two clear baggies labeled DIATONE on one side. Inside the baggie is the PDB itself and a smaller baggie containing auxiliary LED lighting.
The PDBs I received are the V1; they are made to fit the majority of "ZMR250" and "H250" quad frame kits. Here you can see it fitted against an RCX H250 frame; I know it's hard to tell from this photo, but what looks like mismatched holes is actually just shadows from the flash. I PROMISE you all the arm screw holes and standoff holes line up perfectly. I've used it successfully with a number of different generic "ZMR250" frames from eBay and AliExpress.
Just got done with putting together this 350QX FPV Body Conversion Kit and I absolutely love it. Fitted with a Boscam TS832 600mw TX. I get a GPS lock with no problems even with that powerful of a TX. Had so much fun flying today FPV, real clear signal, I'm gonna do a review video soon too
It looks really cool but I must also stress it's seriously built for performance with FPV! Not just for look. The key is in the high purity carbon fiber and graphite that blocks and absorbs RF. The canopy is built from carbon fiber composite and protects the GPS from interference. I seriously did not lose GPS lock even once with the TS832 on full power.
So custom shielding is very necessary and the builder on eBay truly did their homework, it's something you can't get anywhere else currently. I've NEVER seen anybody fly this far with 350QX3. I'm gonna get a few vids myself up in due time. Here is someone else who bought this body and shows what its capable of:
Oh Supposed I not to fly in high wind without a complete pre-flight check! Not solely junked my brand new JH-11A/P wing, but also my beloved C Lens Mobius Action Cam! I was just tryin to take some nice vids with my stablest controls ever, yet still crashed...
My first crash in the whole entire year, not because of the problem from either the transmitter or the pilot, but the wing's weakened motor mount that actually flew off the aircraft during flight. Pitiful.
Walked to the crash site and it was a catastrophe. The starboard wing snapped in half, the motor mount far reached from the plane, the camera landed head on and the case popped open, the battery smooshed... For such disaster, shall I pick up all of the remains with sadness and return to the pit with misery. Some quick paces left no triumph, I anxiously tried to turn the Mobius back to life; however, failure awaited.
Now what can I do? I definitely chose to fly my other flying wing, the big-o-trusty JH-22A SurfWing. Whatever to the blue sky and scattered lone clouds, I thought it was so D nice!
Greetings all, I'm new to this hall of blogs and to the RC hobby and am hoping someone can offer some assistance. I just finished a project, but now not sure what configuration to use for this . With the pictures attached, does this qualify as an "X" quad or a "V"tail. I flew it under a quad setting, and it flies ok. But I found myself kinda fighting with it while hovering . For now, I've named it the "XV1". In saying this, my Q is, Can I adjust the throttle curve to a more gentler, more user friendly curve using "clean flight"? Or should I adjust the "Dual rates and the Expo"on the radio? Am I able to set up the XV1 as a heli if the board is a naze32 acro? I'm wondering because this would give the option to adjust the throttle curve and other options not offered on an acro set-up. I know, I have alot of questions. But, as I said, I'm a newbe. If anyone has a clue to this...stuff, please let me know.
The West Coast Mini Festival Sept. 5 & 6, 2015 this weekend. It looks like great weather. We already have motor home coming in to what is going to be a great event. All day flying, night flying, Paint Ball shoot down, lunch, and a big raffle. Go to http://www.deltamodelers.org/ for more info.
Let the micro motor battle begin. I have several umx Sport Cub S planes. After the Sport Cub motors started to fail way too early, I started to keep track of the number of flight hours each had lasted before failure.
