Hi all,

Recieved mine a couple of days ago, but havent had a chance to play with it yet. Hopefully next weekend Il give it a go.

A word of caution for aussies though. It is supplied with an american power supply which doesnt support 240v, So dont do what I did today otherwise you'l be smelling acrid melted electrical components :. No damage to the force fly as it wasnt plugged in.

Marc,

hiya Doug
wondering with baited breath how it went with the forcefly joystick!
I'm curious what your rc Tx is?
any idea if it would be possible to plug directly into a long range system eg dragonlink/ sherrer, therefor totally negating the need for an rc Tx altogether?

point taken on the a/c side- trap for the unweary!

G'day,

Well before I even set it up I crashed my plane flying NR visual . Also as you might have seen I suffered from a faulty VTX. Not to worry, I have ordered a new, Different plane and have a new VTX, and If its all here this week I shal be trying it this weekend (I go into the country to fly). Also It just hit me late last week that I need a stereo audio for full Forcefly so might have to do some DIY to get the full FF.

I use a DX6i but I usually dont go very far away with it. As far as LR UHF kits go im shore they'l work, It will also be more compact. Im considering getting a Dragon link for my forcefly to but waiting for my next pay cheque .

I will keep posted if I get to finally have a good play with it.

Cheers

Doug

i got the "Logitech Force 3D Pro " today from a local computer mall..
well, i tried it with pc simulator.. its working without the power adapter
but its very sensitive.. so i just plugged the power adapter.. it become usable..
and i don't think it will be any good for fast planes.. it will be very hard to be controlled !
i am planning to connect it with Dragon Link i will have it tonight..
i will have to order ForceFly soon...

i found this USB to PPM converter here.
but it needs pc to get signals from..
the best thing on ForceFly that it don't need pc..
plus i see it as Expensive actually.. and it don't support any other joystick till now..
and it looks naked without any cover for the unit to protect it !

Hey Kev,
Sorry man, not yet. I work long hours. If you want to have a look/play with one you can come over one weekend.

Regards

Hi,

To me, on 12v the joystick feels a little sloppy in the center. I would probably get a dc-dc converta and boost it up to about 15-18v.

I havent tried out the force feed back yet, I am looking for a suitable VTX that tickles my fancy.

I do have a film I made for my Farther to show him how It all works but its a pretty lame film and bad quality, but if you want to see it Il post it in.

Cheers

Doug
