Well, yes, and no. Akihabara isn't the place it was even 10 years ago but it's true there are a few shops selling this stuff. My disability is that I don't really know enough Japanese to be able to ask for exactly what I want or understand where to find it. The other problem is that those shops shut at 6pm (I finish work around 6:30 @ the earliest) and I'm always busy on the weekend with the family etc.

What I'm after is the same clear stuff that ImmersionRC use on their Video TX. It's slightly hard/stiff compared with the more standard polyolefin (I know where to get most sizes of that in Aki'ba' [here]). Likely it's the same or similar stuff that they use on PET bottles for the label...

So now the famous F-20A and F-30A have been out of stock for quite a while.
Looking for some alternatives in the HK store or somwhere around any ideas!?
Yes TC, I know they are the best affordable but still there must be somebody around that is copying them...
Why there is nobody copying when you need it?
HAHA.
BTW is anybody in the U.K willing to ship me an HK order as apparently they are only available in the UK....?
Cheers,
Emile

I just got 10 F30A this week so I wonder if they won't be in stock soon. I just ordered and waited... and it did take ages this last time. Luckily I wasn't in a rush!

Guys, is this a good ESC to put SimonK firmware? I'm already using 30A Blue Series, but I would like to know if 40A blue series is as good as 30 one.

Before flashing my ESC, i was wondering about the benefit of SimonK firmware...

On me RCtimer 40A, it made my quad not flying but kind of floating in the air! This is the best noticeable upgrade i've ever done on quad.

Thanks to Simonk and all other clever folks how made it possible.

Soory if it's been ask before...Why my hover point move up about 20%?

Q,
Did you do an ESC throttle calibration? What Tx/Rx and flight controller are you using?
Cheers,
Jim

thanks for asking jesolins, yes i did ESC cal ( with EPA set to 125%) and i'm using mutliwii. All motors start perfectly at the same time

before that i did ESC cal with EPA set to 100% and it was not meeting the 1000/2000 range for MWC (strange behavior, motor not starting at the sametime and motor stop at low throtle even if commented in MWC but still flying smootly

I flashed nearly 100 ESC, so probably could do that even faster.

Making good pogo-pins adapter takes lots of time (in that time i would have 20 ESC flashed already), solving "target does not answer" problems caused by bad contacts (writing to forums, flooding thread with the same questions again and again and again) would take way too much time, compared to time needed to solder 6 wires...
Well it certainly took a while to make the pogo adapter - it looks fine but doesn't work. I've checked all the pins for continuity back to the USM card pins and it looks as if it's making good contactwith the pads but no joy.

I wish I had the soldering skills to solder a set of pads in under one minute - maybe I will after I've flashed 12 ESCs! Now - I need some more powerful reading glasses and some thinner wire...

Same here but the HobbyKing BlueSeries 12a are harder to do because they don't have pads and you have to go straight to the chip's pins. smaller too.

Between me and a friend we have ten 12a and five more on the way for him lol
He started to solder one and one of the pins of the atmega lifted from the pcb! :O

So I'll wait lol
