It's hard to do if you don't have 2 Mini Pet retail boxes to work with, but what you could do is trace the ears out onto another pice of card board, with the ears spaced about 7.5" from each other (at the folds), cut it out and then trace the center section out an cut, you should be able to make another smaller box.

You then just trim the plastic insert blister pak to fit.

I just received my Mini Pet from Banggood and found one of the blue LED were not working. I tried reconnecting the connectors on the main board but to no avail.

Hi G,
Check the magnet wires that are bundled 4 on 1 to each of the wires on the plug connectors going to the LED socket. I suspect that either the one wire to that LED is not making good contact with the others due to bad soldering or removal of lacquer from the magnet wire, or possibly that LED has the wires reversed in the bundle and needs to be switched. Last of course is a bad LED. Not worth sending back for any of that obviously...so just get out your soldering pencil and fix it! It is part of this hobby anyway
Cheers,
Jim

Fantastic Mod Massive! I believe I'll follow suit. I also like the idea of using a foam lined box too. Guess I'll have to go to our local harbor freight and see if they have a box like that. If not, then a box mod is in order. Take care all and Happy flying!

My mini will arrive tomorrow. Let's see how it compares to my hubsan/revell minicopters. Most likely IŽll be able to just have fun with all of them.

WOW that's going to be crazy!!!

I like mine how it flys I just ain't getting smooth circles with the left rudder how does your hover and rotate left and right with the left stick on the radio smooth tight circles? mine is good one direction and the other it tends to drift and not do a spin?

Hi,

I bought a mini pet a month ago. Now, I want to control it with my flysky controler. I have already created my own receptor which output a PPM signal.

I look at the microcontroller on board, and it is a Atmel, but the number have been scratched. I can only read the last number which is 22A4. Does any one know which Atmel microcontroller model is in board?

Have a nice day.

Hi S,
It is the same as the MJX X100, an ATXMEGA A32A4. Please post your mod when you finish it
Cheers,

My first really small quad was a MiniPet from MassiveRC.com

It was amazing that everything that the already pretty small Horizon Blade mQX I got last year had on it, was able to be shrunk in half and still fly very nicely.

My only beef was that the "Bee", the "Ladybird", and the "UFO" left something to be desired in the attractive looks department. I let it go until I got my 2nd baby quad the slightly smaller yet Hubsan X4 also from massiverc.com. It was even smaller with the ominous blue eyes and sveldt black full shell canopy. I had to add a bit of orange and red tape to help with orientation on that one, but it was a beauty next to the "bee". Next I picked up a Tower Heli-Max 1SQ, and after a $25 E-Mail Coupon Discount off the $49 Scratch and Dent sale price, it became the new bargain of all and a real battle in the looks department with it's ominous bug-like yet futuristic spaceship-esque canopy vs the Hubsan X4. The MiniPet was getting less and less airtime, but just because of its looks, it flew as nice as the others pretty much. The 1SQ got even better with the addition of the Nine Eagles Alien Drone Canopy, (the original quad that Heli-Max bought rights to).

I finally found a suitable donor body in a plastic packaging shell that was small enough for a baby quad.

A little trimming and painting and now the pet can fly proud again.

John
