Hey guys just fopr the previous question any of the Devo S series remotes have telemetry, but the question I have an issue rather is does anyone else have an issue with the yaw rate freezing and becomming unresponsive while in flight also I have the Devo 7 that came in the bundle and many times on startup of the transmitter the little "jingle" that plays on startup is sometimes different and ends up not syncing with the heli? Anyone else having these issues?

This flys real nice, and it flys wild nicely.
On the kit I got, devo7 with ladybird, why would they set that right side top switch to full throttle? I can't think of any quad flying that would. Need that...
Yeah, I played with it before reading 78 pages of tx MANULE, I hope I can fix that.
I went for three batts, and spent 30 minutes doing them. I think I want to make batt adapter to use my charger and see what mah is going back in, the charger that came with qr LB is neat, but I am afraid of red lit green lite....
Oh, wind was about 7-10 mph, and it handled fine.

Devo 7 that came with Lsdybird. Also, trim keeps changing with battery use during flight.

I too would like to know the answer to this question, as well as any cheap alternatives that can be used?

Since no one answered, I went to wowhobbies and picked up some props today. They measure 5.5cm, just under 2.17inches.

One complication for finding alternative props is to find both cw and ccw props.
One possible source are replacement props for something like the AirHogs or Silverlit small twin motor planes.

Awesome, thanks! I tried the AirHogs ones; bought them off ebay. I'm actually using these props for a mini quad about the size of the ladybird. The ladybird props worked better than the AirHogs. Still waiting on these from GLB. Anyone tried those or other props on their ladybird, other than stock?

Hi,

Better late than never, I think I figured out the problem:

On my Blade mQX (3-axis gyro) I was used to plug in battery upside down, then let it initialize. Never had any problem.

BUT it seems as if the 6-axis gyro of the Ladybird requires to be upright while initializing!!!
Otherwise the gyro is getting messed up, not working properly.

Since the maiden flight I was having serious "throttle-pulsing". Had some unavoidable crashes as a result of this.
Now, after dozens of those damn nasty flights everything is finally going nicely.


Great events often come from little causes...
