I have one. $1,000,000.00

Seriously, xheli took away the Classima 300 Replacement Parts webpage. However, they will "special order" any original Classima parts. If for some reason you can't get one, I'll let you have mine, for sure. Let me know.

Sorry, but I won't pay less than 10,000,000.00

I'll check out Xheli. I want to replace the canopy on my 4F180. It's too dark to stand out at a distance. Besides, the color scheme looks like it was picked out by a Chinese restraunt decorator.
Thanks for the offer. I appreciate it and will keep it in mind.

Ah! thankyou!...Now It's a matter of finding them to buy somewhere. I found a UK store with exactly what I'm looking for but they don't ship to the US, sent a email to see if they can make an exception.

Oh yes. Plenty... depending on how its flown . Here's a video I took of my V200 - Fully Loaded, lights switched off, except for the front pilot light which is always on

There are 3 set points for voltage alarms: Level 1 (I set this at 3.7V per cell), Level 2 (set at 3.6V per cell) and total voltage (set at 7 V).

Y'know I actually forgot to remove the old voltage indicator that still stuck to the back.

My V200D01 with telemetery flying outdoors in the wind (1 min 21 sec)


Just trying to see whether it can be done.

And yes, there was wind from my left and behind me. The mic that's next to my face picked this up especially at he start of the video and there were some flags behind me (not in the video) that were flying about 40-50%. I'd say it was ranging about 2-4m/s wind with gusts changing direction. The sleeve mod works well - thanks guys!

Very nice! I like the equipment! I could have used that today when I forgot my timer!

Even more, I like seeing all the nose-in & lazy piros. It really helps when you have to recover from disorientaion!

I had my V200 out today and got it all spun around at quite a distance away. It was going down sideways. First, I had to spin it just to tell which way it was pointing so I could recover. I saw some yellow come into view and was then able to correct, quite nicely I might add! I couldn't have done that without all the hours I've spent practicing that very thing.

Thanks for the video!

Kinda, yeah. But you know how the voltage dips and then "bounces" back up when the load is removed. Different batteries behave differently but I think it gives me an idea when a particular cell in a battery is giving in. I flew today for about 6-8 mins a pack before I got the second alarm (i.e. one of the cells reached 3.6V). When I got back to charge them on my B6 charges I got about 830+mAh on the stock 1000mAh batteries so that's about the 80% mark.

Of course when you look at it all it's quite an overkill as a timer or a voltage indicator would have sufficed. I'm just loading the V. Then there is the optional kit allows temp and current readings to be sent back to the screen unit, but I think practically it would add too much weight. Anyways, I bought this from hobby king. http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...mp_mAh_V2.html
and added on the flexible antenna to lighten the load.

Thanks

I built mine from scratch after amassing all these materials over the last couple of months or so - servo extension cables from ebay and from local electronics stores around town like these LEDs, connectors, mini switches, really thin wires and and some resistors.

Other than bling I was going for basic functionality of landing and navigation lights - to help me with orientation and take-off/landing when the field is dark. The conventional green and red for the different sides help me confirm which way it's pointing (right or left) and 2 bright white lights means its headed back at me.

LEDs these days are quite bright. My wife says the only thing she sees when she looks at the dark field is my heli, and she can see it land on the bald patch on the field

If anyone interested these flash leds with wires http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...=STRK:MEWNX:IT have wide range of voltage, i tested 3.7V-12V. No resistors required.
