If it was all handed to you in a neat tidy package and everything you ever wanted or needed to know was incldued, it certainly isn't an rc hobby type product that's for sure! That's unicorns and leprichauns what you're talking about.

This is true, but there are ways to deliver better docs. I just need specific examples. I am rolling with the pinout diagram though, and I have an idea that I'm going to talk to our HW engineering team about.

DRAGON LINK TECHNICAL SUPPORT

I am making instruction videos today. This company is growing, and with this growth comes the need for even better support as more new people buy the Dragon Link system. We hear you and are working on making instruction and support better than ever For now, the downloadable .PDF manual is quite good for hookup and usage, and can be downloaded on Page 1 of this thread, third post down. Or you can get it from our website under the support tab at:

www.DragonLinkRC.com

As you all know, all Dragon Link equipment is fully guaranteed, and as we ship more units than ever, we are working on ways to get replacements out more quickly. This company is all about improving not only the product, but every part of Dragon Link. We have come a long way since the first Version 1 system 3 years ago, and we are just getting started. Many new and awesome things will be happening here

Ok hers my question , I was flying and it was cold 9 degrees outsides so flying and link was good everything working well but I pushed the 4s batteries hard and fast . I know that the batteries in the cold was not going to be a long flight . Batteries died out in flight and I lost motor power I knew it was motor power cause I had full control of the plane still I have a 10amp castle creation BEC on the 80amp ESC landed safely from some really low level flying all of that to say this , when I got plane I notice that all lights on the RX were on red blue and green solid . Now I know that the red and blue are the only lights on solid when I boot up and get ready to fly. So I was wondering was this some type of fail safe with out having one . Remember I HAD FULL CONTROL of the plane with the 10 amp BEC . So can some one explain this lights on RX being on GREEN to be more specific . The TX NEVER showed red light that it LOSS OF LINK STAYED GREEN THE WHOLE TIME . Thanks

I am trying to understand what you've written. If you are running everything off of one battery, and that battery can no longer drive the motor(s), that has zero to do with whether or not the bec can deliver enough power to drive the rx, servos and related items. The current draw is minimal in comparison to the motors. When you load a nearly empty battery heavily the voltage drops off quickly. I am guessing that when your motors turned off, the battery was no longer heavily loaded, and the voltage came back up enough to drive your electronics.

I think hes more concerned/inquiring about the green light being on. When normal it would not! Mybe its because the batt dropped below nominal voltage for a few sec's or something?

Thanks Mike!!!!
yeah that's why i dropped some extra money in there. he does not have to upgrade our stuff but he does! I hope he noticed the extra money because i don't think he read my note. he forgot to ship the vid contest rx i won in october to me with the order.

The TX has no way of knowing if it lost link, should be green alwaysif the TX is on.
Sounds like your RX browned out due to low voltage.

Thx Chris, I know you and the team work hard at answering all the questions. I read the manual download on the web site and read thru many pages here, and I asked myself many of the same questions as posted over the past pages.

I'm sending you a PM with some of the conflicts in the website document that I believe causes a few conflicts.

Not that you cant figure it out from the docs and the www, but a few of the videos out there make it very simple.

And I love my DL

The tx doesn't know if the rx brown's out. A green light on the tx only indicates a good ppm signal from the source tx, and nominal power supply to the DL tx....

I dont know guys, but when I lose connection my Blue link light goes out, my green Rx Status light does not come on, not even when I've drained my battery (by mistake of course).

The only time I've seen my Green Rx status light on is when I had the jumper on pins 5&6 during calibration

Of course, isnt he referring to the 3 lights lit on his Rx??
