Well, let's just say that your heli would suffer from a REAL toilet bowl effect.

Ok guys been a little while since I stepped in this thread, for those looking at the 2.4Ghz chinook......

Here's my forerunner tandem coax experiment.

V929 quadcopter board in S026 tandem coax (1 min 37 sec)


As said in the video, as soon as I know if I can splice te V929 board into the stock 27Mhz I'll show it flying.

Another board splicing experiment

Ok so here is a little more PCB splicing experimentation, before risking killing my ONLY V929 PCB splicing it into the S022 PCB I decided to test splice a S107R5 to a S006, which worked, tail and all but the S006 had a bad FET so I spliced the S107 board to the front end off the S022, the V929 will be done.


S022 FETs hijacked by S107 pcb (0 min 40 sec)

I thought you guys might like to see a Nine Eagles Twingo video I just posted the other day. It was slightly breezy, so it's being knocked around a bit, but I got some nice, close fly-by shots. I hope you enjoy.

Nice flying field there! It's always cool when the weather's good enough to let you fly your tandem outside. Thanks for sharing!

I know, seems like the best time always for me is at night.

That or first thing in the morning. I try to get out by 9:30 on the weekends before the wind picks up.

Yeah I done that a few times also but not to much cause of the sound (which I think is awesome) of my s022g will wake people up in my house hold. So unless folks are up or I need to wake them up....
I fly that one on a lite to no wind day or at night. My s107's do nice on no wind nights also

Just a short update on the V929 board in the S022, my soldering skills with the iron a have are nowhere near good enough for me to be brave enough to try and tap the V929 transistor gates....

On the plus side one of the technicians who is related to electronics courses in my college has happily agreed to tap these points and add them to a little strip socket, I will be able to solder my own strip and just plug into it!

I should hopefully have this stage completed by this time next week, although I doubt I will be able to show you guys my own DIY 2.4Ghz S022 before Christmas.

What should I call this mishmash anyway?
V022
S929
VS022
S961?
