DRAGON LINK WEEKLY VIDEO CONTEST !!!

Win a FREE Dragon Link Receiver

We will be giving away a FREE Dragon Link Receiver EVERY WEEK... The rules are simple:

1. Post an FPV video flown with Dragon Link on YouTube that has " Dragon Link " , or " Flown with Dragon Link " or like statement, PROMINENTLY displayed at the BEGINNING of the video for at least 3 seconds. Having something like " Flown With Dragon Link " in the title of the video will also be acceptable. Having Dragon Link included in an equipment list or mixed in with other things will NOT qualify. Please read below for more details on this.

2. Post your video in the FPV video thread located here:
FPV Videos For those that want to see what FPV flying is like check this out [Part 6]

3. Also post your video here in this thread so that I will know to judge it.

4. Video Must be posted on YouTube. VIMEO or other video servers will NOT qaualify for the contest.

5. Videos must be posted on Monday, 3 December 2012 or LATER to qualify for this weeks contest.

6. The video that gets the highest view count at the end of the week, Sunday night, 9 December 2012 wins !!!


NOTES:

Running this contest every week costs me a lot of money " Flown with Dragon Link " must be prominent in the beginning of the video, not hidden in the middle or at the end. Having " Flown with Dragon Link " merely included in an equipment list will NOT qualify. If you are not willing to make the statement " Flown with Dragon Link " noticible in your video, I am most certinaly not willing to go to the expense and time of manufacturing, and shipping you a free receiver. This rule will be strictly enforced !!!

This is not a " Best Video " contest, the winner will be determined by which one has the most number of views at the end of the week ! The video can be as old as you like, but it must be posted as a new unique video so that we can count the number of views. Videos can also be used twice, but must be posted as new every week so that everyone has an equal chance every week to get the most number of views for that week.

This contest will be run EVERY WEEK, so if you do not win this week, no worries, try again !!!

Mike

Mike, Chris, or anyone really,

Since the HT port on the DL transmitter adds the channels to the end of the PPM stream, is it capable of adding more than two channels? If I send in 3 or 4 additional, will it add all of them or just the first two?

Thanks in advance,

Kent

I'm after a DragonLink RX with firmware compatible with the very first DragonLink TX (pre-Dec 2011?)

Are these available for immediate dispatch from anywhere, or does anyone have one they would like to sell me?

Thanks.

firmware upgrade

i am keen to update my firmware on my dragon link version 2, is the genuine updating kit coming out soon from dragon link, if not ill grab another programmer, in instructions ive seen it says to update both tx and rx, i think the download from dragon link web site only has tx part, i assume there is no need to update any firmware on any v2 recievers to use new tx firmware?

The DL tx still blinks green, like previous versions. This makes seasoned DL users even confused. What does that mode do now?
The Versoin 1 LED indications are different than the Version 2 LED indications, the manual is written for Version 2. We wanted to make the LED indications exactly the same for both systems, but it just could not be done given the hardware.

I followed the instructions to the letter, and once I was used to the different LED sequences, all 13 receivers calibrated and then bound without error. I checked this by connecting a set of servos to each receiver to ensure each receiver bound correctly. (This took the most time!).

I will say that when I was initially calibrating and binding the V2 receivers before I got my other receivers back (by the way, I sent my V1 receivers and transmitters to Mike on Wed of this week, and received them back this afternoon (Sat). I do live in Florida, but I was extremely pleased at the quick turnaround!), I had some difficulty getting them to bind. A few ID changes and calibrations, and every receiver seems to bind quickly and without any problems.

Attached are some pics of my setup. Crude, but it works!
