Hey guys, im new to the forums here but I wanted to join this conversation about the s022. I have recently bought one and have found quite a lot of enjoyment playing around with it. Im gonna upload what I have modified and changed and see what you all think. I've also been following the battery upgrade and am looking for a suitable battery for replacement. I'll let you know how I get on.

Cheers guys!

[EDIT]

I just found this battery, can someone explain it to me, does the '800 Mah' tell the capacity of the battery? Would this last longer than a 600 Mah for example. Cheers guys (sorry for being a noob)

Welcome, that should be fine just check the size for correct dimentions and make sure you have a proper hobby charger, even a cheap one is better than the stock S022 charger, also the stcok cell has a overcharge PCB inside, Most hobby cells like the one you liked does not, the stock charger is not safe for this type of cell so if you are going to get this cell you will need a better charger.

1. Replace lethargic stock part
2. 26C will provide more power
3. 600mAh capacity will provide longer flights with only a 5g weight gain
4. They can fit in the same battery holder WITHOUT MODIFICATIONS!

So what happened?
You first notice that the LED Lights seem slightly brighter. They appear hot white! Just my observation. Slightlymore power in the take-off. What you can't help but notice is how long you can hover at half throttle in the garage and the feeling that you have much more reserve than before. Either my skills have gotten better with this heli or it seems like you need to make trim adjustments less. Flights are longer and appear more sure footed; never a feeling of being underpowered.

Next I am going to try this rig outside to see if there are improvements there as well. I would think so. Will let you know.

PS. Mars just raised the price to $12.55 each!
May I ask what kind of charger you use for these? Im looking for a good upgrade and it seems like these might do the trick, but i dont know what to charge them with. Also the site you provided seems to be out of stock, do you know any others which stock them.

Many thanks in advance

Spec.
Input: 110v or 240v A/C (50/60Hz)
Output: 650mA per cell
CE, FCC Certified.
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...40v_Input.html

It's basic but has fair reviews, plugs directly into the main via a figure of 8 power cable, UK buyers can get a UK cable from a pound shop or just cut the plug off and fit a UK one to it.

I've used it a couple of times and I may get one for myself, at the moment I'm using a stock Eflite 2/3S charger that is powered from a 12V 3A wall wart, the stock Eflite charger I'm using is ok for unprotected hobby cells as Eflite is a HOBBY RC company not a toy one like Syma, San Huan and UDi for example.

because I'm Italian and I do not understand English well,
and among all forum posts by this fantastic and I could understand what kind of micro camera is best for the Syma S022 are undecided as to which order
if I suggest it would be very happy poets you list those that I found

Car Key Chain Mini Room 808

obvious, then unmount it as light as possible to the micro chamber
also fit a battery less powerful and lighter

because I live in Italy and are quite expensive I can also give some links from which to order the products listed above with

I also accept suggestions on changes on S022 and miniature paintings camerine
to make things slightly more

thanks

ps I apologize for any grammatical errors I hope you understand

Caio ruainicus,

Ho avuto della difficoltà che trova un venditore in Hong Kong che spedirà a Italia. Queste maglie la porteranno a un venditore che spedirà a Italia. Questa è la #3 macchina fotografica e farà probabilmente per ciò che lei ha bisogno di.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Mini-Spy-Camera-Hidden-DV-Sports-Recorder-Keychain-3-/150677700852?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item231517 40f4#shId

Le migliori macchine fotografiche sono l'alta definizione e sono più caro. Sono intorno a €29 e lo stesso venditore li vende.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Keyfob-cam-DV-LENS-Camera-DVR-video-camera-808HD-11-/150676740863?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item231508 9aff

Lei deve fornire il suo proprio mini la carta di SD e deve essere un di classe 6 o meglio prendere dei risultati decenti. Spero che questo faccia del senso a lei poiché non parlo italiano così ho usato un servizio di traduzione in linea.

Caio ruainicus,

Penso il MD80 Mini DVR di Macchina Fotografica di DV non è molto buono, ho due di loro e non sono tanto buono quanto la #3 macchina fotografica.

Non cambierei la batteria nella #3 macchina fotografica poiché è una molto piccola batteria e lei non risparmierà molto sul peso.

Lo S022 è molto buono senza i cambiamenti ma non amerà il vento forte, dovrà essere un molto calmo nessun giorno di vento di volare fuori.

I have never paid any customs charges for any camera from Hong Kong

you have one more? # 3 of so you do not use Apple sent me and I pay you
I have two #3 and use both, I do not understand what you write in red?

You would contact Italian customs and ask them if there were charges.

then what does this mean
Postage: - Free Shipping Int'l Economy
It means it is free to ship - no charge

costs about $ 14
The camera will cost $14

thank you very much
You are welcome

The shipping number is usually for the Hong Kong post only, it will not tell you when you are going to get your S022.
It will take a few weeks to get to you
