DRAGON LINK UPDATE

Hi Everyone,

We have been SUPER BUSY, and we are keeping up, producing and shipping as many Dragon Links within 24 hours. To assure we always have lots of stock on hand, we did another production run this week, which I am finishing up tomorrow. This puts our stock well ahead of sales, assuring that Dragon Links ship within 24 hours no matter how many people buy, exactly where I want to be

The downside to this is that I have been a little slow on PM's and answering some of you guys. I am working all weekend and will get this caught up quickly !

Mike

Mike, I just received my package.
I tried to contact you guys regarding 2nd receiver - but never get an answer. I emailed, PM'ed etc.

If there is ANY way to contact you - let me know or PM me please.

DL system received - opened, binded, calibrated ... working since first touch.
Great fast shipping - 3 days !
If weather will be friendly around windy-city, will perform ground tests tomorrow and will see how it runs in the sky !

So far - THANK YOU and HELLO in DragonLink community !

Hi Alex,

I am going to be clearing out PM's tomorrow, possibly some tonight. Can you shoot me a PM as soon as they open up, and I will get you taken care of !

Thanks for the report on everything going smoothly and quickly, that is the type of result we like to see.

Once you fly, you will be able to forget all about Dragon Link, you will just turn on your plane, and enjoy flying FPV without worry of losing RC control

Hi,


It will be better if you can PM me. For full instructions of the Dragon Link update, see page 700 of this thread. I included all the new functions and LED indications there. My PM's will open up tonight or tomorrow.

Hi Brian,

I tested your system very well, and it is perfect. Make sure your RC transmitter is set to PPM mode, not to PCM.

Also, see the new instructions for binding on page 700 of this thead. If you bind the way you are used to binding, it will NOT WORK My guess is that you are trying to bind in the micro power range test mode

Hi Mike.

I have control of the receiver from my transmitter. No problems there. It's set to PPM and is bound to the receiver (I didn't change the binding, just did a calibration).

It's just that the servos twitch when I have the controls at rest. Doesn't seem like it should do that since it's a digital system. So the only thing I can think of is the DL Tx is so powerful that it causes interference across the servo lead when really close. Either that or the PPM stream from the RC tx to the DL tx is also being affected. As I said, if I put the dummy load on the DL Tx, the problem goes away. Clean control of the servos then. So it seems like when the power is reduced, it gets better. But I'd like to know where the problem is... servo leads on the plane, or PPM wire on the Tx.
