I think I'll order some Turnigy nanotech 300mAh batteries. Tom Z had posted some pretty decent numbers using these but I haven't seen any comments about how they hold up in the long term after a good number of charge/discharge cycles. I suppose for $1.82 each I could risk a few.
Hi

I don't like how the nano 300 fits the battery holder.
Personally I go for the new nano 260 to start with.

What protocol does the Mini CP use?

Im wondering as id love to find a tx that could control both a Mini cp and my v911's.

Im confused, does the mini cp have 2 versions? one with 3 axis gyro and one with 6 axis?

http://www.ehirobo.com/shop/product_...9{33}233{31}201 <- 6 axis.

http://www.rc711.com/shop/24g-walker...65_122_292_294 <- 3 axis with devo 7e

Xermalk, are you confusing 6ch ( channel ) with 6 axis. They both say 3 axis FBL.
BTW, has anyone used 5320 servos on mini? What needs to be changed in order to use those?

i should get some more sleep, noticed its *only* banggood that seems to have the missprint http://www.banggood.com/Wholesale-Wa...r-p-39446.html

everyone else lists 3 axis.

Btw whats that engrish update feature mention everywhere if you have the devo 8s?

Edit, is there any heli for the Phoenix Rc sim that even remotely resembles the flight characteristics of a Mini CP?

Does anyone know what kind of telemetry data you would get with a Devo 7E controler when paired to a Walkera Mini cp?


Seems the Devo 8s has Voltage,Temperatur and Gps information.

Edit, what Spare parts/Battery's/ Brushless kit? should one get when buying a Mini CP?

Ouch.... my mini started doing positive/negative pitch by itself all of the sudden. So i just zoom around and all of the sudden it goes up or down. Trying to investigate what exactly causes that, but it seems like it happens at the begginnig/ after exiting the maneuver. I was practicing figure 8 today, on the left turn couple of times it went up, going down mostly on the right turns. The swash just lifts/ lowers all by itself and there is no way to correct it. Was landing down with the throttle stick all the way to the top and rotor spinning at the max rpm. Its not a loose shaft either. After the landing/crash, if i kill the throttle, the swash levels and everything is back to normal until it happens again. There was another dude who had this problem, he says that cleaning the servo plugs solved it for some time until the problem returned. Did anyone had anything similar, any advice on how to fix it?

Nice vid! I'd love to be able to fly this way. Landing seems a bit rough though.
