Nevermind I found confirmation on an old posting! I must order battery!

And no, I was searching and searching and searching for the right place shipping parts etc. combination. I was going to order TX/RX/Battery/Blades from HiModel but they say first orders may be delayed shipping 5-7 days and orders with batteries cannot be shipped priority. So if I'm going to be waiting ~30 days for a battery anyway I may as well take free shipping on the TX/RX from Miracle-Mart and wait for ~30 days as well.

Oh, and I'm thinking I'll do the Devo 10. I will try using this to fly acrobatic eventually, but I also like long smooth flights for AV so I'm thinking adding telemetry will help reduce the chance I'll lose it somewhere. If I'm way off in the distance I should be able to fly by instruments right?

Okay, I might be able to help. I just went with the Devo 7 and really like it. I wound-up getting it in a combo deal with a Master CP from Banggood for $165 shipped. It took about 3 weeks to get to me though. When looking for the D7, I was finding them for around $100 shipped, so in my eyes I got a Master CP for $65. (I have not flown the CP yet, and I hold BThrisk responsible for this madness...Hahahahaa!)

Onto the batt: The first 3 I ordered were from Value Hobby from here in the U.S. However, it appears they do not currently ship out of the U.S. For those here, it's a really good deal and I like them a lot. 2650mah 40C for $23 ea and shipping was cheap/fast. I forgot to mention; these batts ARE NOT as heavy as advertised. They are actually 231g ea.

http://www.valuehobby.com/power-syst...1-1v-lipo.html

The next 4 batts are from a company here in the U.S. that does in fact appear to be willing to ship to you guys in Canada. Actually they are worldwide and have warehouses in China and U.S. I found them through an advertisement here on RCGroups and there's already a thread here on them. Don't bother with the first page because its mostly speculation BS. Just go to the last page and see what they're saying.

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...1734415&page=8

I went with the 3000mah 40C/80C burst for $24 I just got them yesterday and have not tried them because of the strom that just blew through. They'll be fine I'm sure. Good communication, price, and fast shipping. Oh and they even threw in 12 free AA batts for my Tx...Just part of the deal. The weight on the Value Hobby batts are lighter and I also suspect but have not confirmed that these are lighter as well somewhere in the 250-260g range. If I get a chance I'll find-out for sure and let you guys know.

http://www.chinahobbyline.com/ProductShow.asp?id=2365

I should also mention both batts came with the correct connectors for your Armattan. Damn, I've let the cat out of the bag now.

Props were bought (Gemfans) from Dan. He's the guy that me and Brian pointed out earlier in this thread. If you have any Q's, just fire away...At least until the Raider game starts..

I'm sure the D10 would be fine and I know nothing about the telemetry options/how it works. But, if I could just talk out of my backside for a moment I'll make some speculations. There's no freaking way you're controlling this bird with "instruments" rexless this thing is VERY AGGRESSIVE, nothing like our F45's what-so-ever. And as far as "long smooth flights" well.....I'm just saying you will be to drunk with power to do so...Hahahahahaa!

You'll see what I mean soon enough. I would STRONGLY recommend you drop the stick scaling down to the 40% range until you get the hang of it. Even at 40%, you can stand this thing on it's nose, punch it and it will be waaaaay the hell out there in less than 2 seconds....Hahahahaa you'll see.

Is there anybody use the Flysky or Turnigy 9X? Just bough for 4ch copters and quad toys grade. Now I'm planning to get one of those cool quad. I'm new also with the Turnigy 9x and didn't read yet all the posts on the 9x.

Un petit bonjour de Montreal Chris ;0)

I'm using 9X, it's very good TX for a price but it has two main problems:

1. You must replace stock firmware with ER9X, immediately after you unbox the TX. Stock FW is 100% beepy, noisy crap

ER9X is beautiful, clean software, very easy setup and understandable menus

It was 15 min work for me, with soldering iron, JST leads and usb programmer.

2. Stock TX/RX module pair range is 200m max, i've crashed my first Armattan quite badly because i've lost range on those. My RX was used, with resoldered antenna and this could strongly contributed to the problem, swapping antennas is also option.

I've replaced it with polish eLeReS 433 mHz system, but it's not avaliable worldwide, so you could use FrSky, proven to 1.5-2km range, clone of futaba FASST.

Available as plug-play to 9X

What's everyone doing for a more substantial set of landing gear.

My four broke on my first flight and surprisingly the landing were soft grass.

Any suggestions of something a little more substantial?

Thanks.

Loads of fun BTW.

I mounted a set of Trex 450 landing gear under the main plate. Works great.

I'm also running thru landing gears like crazy

Try not to overtight the landing gear screw, i even leave some ~1mm play on the landing gear leg and it's not so prone o break.

I will stay with nylons standoff's in this or other shape just because of weight.
