Ya, there only 720p at 30fps, quite a drop from the others, but so is the price. Might have to give these a try, not such a huge investment.

Actually there is much cheaper on ebay if you just want to see what there like, just ordered a pair for $17, will see.

So my zyx finally showed up. I actually ordered the HK version, but i received the tarot one. I guess it will need updating. Was going to use johns prog as it seems better than the tarot version . Hopefully got it set up later tonight. If i can work it out lol.

What servo combination is installed? Seems to work well.
Servos are DS510's cyclic, and DS520 Tail. Did you analyze my headspeed somehow? Just curious, I really have no idea what rpm it's running, but she is smooooth!

So have questions all ready. On johns prog it says to use epa to get the sliders to 100%. My throttle goes from -129 to 129 so do i need to knock it down 29 points each way. On the elevator if i set the ends to 100 then the on screen slider is no longer centred, do i use trim to bring it back to 0. Just worried about having all these trims etc in. also no problems connecting to pc at all. Connected straight away.

Yes, bring down the throttle. Make sure you recalibrate your ESC endpoints if you do so (if your ESC has this feature).

Use sub-trim on the Tx to center all sliders once you've set the endpoints to read 100 on all channels.

you can get prescription lenses for them. but i'm not if you can get your insurance to pay for the lenses or not....you'd have to ask pivothead how that works.
