Questions:

When you sell the V959 can it come with any module or does it have to be the camera version? I'm thinking of getting a 808 from you guys but would have no need to for the WLToys cam if I did.

What's a good source of tiny wires the micros use? I'm converting several of my quads to DIY versions but need more wires. Sizes very small and too d*mn small, to be exact.

Are you guys going to, by chance, eventually sell the Turnigy tx's or any balance chargers?

Was the moon landing real or fake?

Thank you,
V

Small magnet wire you'll get for free when cannibalising worn out motors - rip the end cap off - voila - 3 spools wire.

small balance chargers are quite cheap - ~ 25 USD shipped for a clone.

Hey V, by default the come with the camera................I wish we could have ordered them without any modules and just add them ala carte, but you can swap the camera out with the other modules. Once we receive the shipment we'll have a better idea of what bundling we can do.

We'll carry anything that sells good and we can offer a competitive price on.

The moon landing was real, or at least faked realisticly

More questions:

What's the battery life of the 808?

How many minutes of 720p video will a 16gb card hold?

How do you change settings of the camera (like resolution, orientation, date, etc, )?

When is jai-alai going to make a come back?

Here ya go bud:

About 45 minutes:

At 7mb per minute 16GB would hold 39 hours if my calculations are correct. Obviously it's Massive Overkill

4 GB is more than sufficient for many electric RC outings. My 5 1/2 minute videos take about 290 megs, so at that real-time rate, 77 minutes of recording could be done on that 4 GB card.

There's a GUI software you can buy that makes it ridiculously simple to configure:

Thanks to Tom and Isoprop for collaborating on this for the community.

Jai-alai will make a comeback when they integrate some MMA rules and have cheerleading added to the sport...........or better yet cheerleaders are now the players doing MMA , where only grappling and not punching\kicking is allowed, where the cesta has whips attached to the end and the pelota is made from KY jelly-filled bubble-bath-style gelatin balls.

What kind of pricing could we expect for the V959? Sorry for the OT question.

Well Banggood is selling them for $69. We won't be $10 more than that. Everyone else is selling it for $83 shipped.

Modules are going for $7-8 so I think we can match that too.

I just want to apologize in advance for being OOS of the V202 (only 10 left and I may reserve a few for local sales) and other parts. I'm hoping our replenishment order will get processed before Chinese festivities begin, but it's now in fate's hands. If things go well, we'll be restocked within a week. If they go bad, it could be the end of February.

The V202 has kept MassiveRC alive, which could have gone belly-up from dealing with Hubsan. I'm still waiting to see if Hubsan does right by us and will post an update when I feel their attempt has been finalized. James, I apologize for not listening to you.

One other thing I'd like to mention is the Chinese people. While we all complain about the horrible quality of products coming out of China, I really feel for the workers. What can you expect for $.10\hour wages and exhausting hours. I hope they all get a chance to let off some steam and get some relaxation in during their much-needed holiday.


Thanks for your patience.
