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, 22 October 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, 28 October 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

Hi Carlos,

This is the newest firmware !!! No need for you to upgrade as you already have a really good firmware compatible with Version 2 equipment, just order the latest version receiver shipped after 7 April and you arew good to go.

Superstar mike! Cheers. Was there a way to link the update tool to the V1 DL Tx? Or is there more than a software upgrade involved? Not for me obviously. But for others with unupgraded V1 Tx's.

Nope. I actually expected that but there's no tracking info on the paypal transaction. And I actually got an automated email from dragonlinklabs@hotmail.com titled "Vacation reply". So that's why I thought it was strange. But it referenced "17 September 2012 - We are here and shipping more Dragon Link systems than ever !!!" and "We have plenty of stock and all Dragon Link systems ordered ship within 24 hours of purchase............ (more excluded)" So I'm still not sure, s I thought I'd ask.

Help with V1 Rx and Dosd

Hi,
OK today is the day. Got my V1 Tx and both V1 9Ch Rx's back from Mike all updated. Wife is off doing her think all day and tonight she is off ot a book club meeting. I have all day and half the night to spent time getting my SW with DL and DOSD all setup. Got the update from Mike on the V1 Tx binding/setup so am ready to go.

Well reached a stonewall shortly after into things. The Rx seems to work fine, put a servo on it and it follows the throttle/aileron whatever. Now I connect CH 9 from the Rx which is supposed to be PPM output to the DOSD. power up the DOSD run the Commander program, set the Rx type to JR. Now when I put on a servo to any of the PWM outputs it initially jitters but will not respond to any channel input from the Tx. It seems the PPM stream is not working. Can't go much farther till I get this resolved. As I recall, again with Van's help Ch9 defaults to PPM out but doesn't seem to work. Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Tom

The new firmware that started shipping on 10 October seems to be the perfect version Now that people have started hooking it up to different kinds of RC Transmitters, and using it, we have not seen any issues with it. No problems, no bugs, its just the most stable, best working version we have ever put out. Chris did the impossible and got my " Dream List " of features and the way the Dragon Link system should work !!!

All Version 2 owners can update thier firmware at home, cables will be for sale soon on the website !!! Also, complete instructions are available for Dragon Link are available for download at:

Chris has done a great job on the manual and continues to update it as people ask questions and we see where people need help on installation.

Mike

Mike
Mike, can you post the link whit the instruction, the software updater and ftdi pinout for update?

Thx.

Chris, Mike...I see a lot of DL updates in this thread, but there are also a few people that would like to know what's going on with orders, shipments, etc...These are people who have invested a decent amount of money in your business, and deserve some kind of answer just as much as we want to hear about a new contest that we can't participate in.

I understand upgrades are probably not your highest priority, but we are the guys who keep coming back and spending more money with you. Those kind of customers are hard to come by, and easy to lose when you're not communicating.

I appreciate any info you have on my particular shipment and upgrade. There are others that obviously would appreciate the same.

Thanks

JC

I'm sitting here staring at a bunch of stuff that just wants to be in the air, and it appears it's going nowhere anytime soon.

I appreciate it. Thanks.

For the latest firmware, the PPM stream has moved to channel 12. Give that a try.
