RCHHB Test - TMF AQ50 Pro

Hi all ,

and a very Special Thank you to mahui and Fpv4ever Fabien.

I now a big delay in my Test the AQ50 pro. But now is the Time. Nothing is more Important than my New Job since first Dec. this is money, all other only Hobby.

I build now a Motor to Motor 60cm Frame, a Quadro in + Mode , made from 14mm Square Alu Tubing from Local DIY Store - Bauhaus.
Two round 145 mm Airplane Plywood 5mm -6 Layers - Sprayed Black, custom made Centerplates CNC in my RCHHB Workshop, all fixed togehter with 3mm Screws and self-locking nuts, all Motor Lines inside the Tubing, Cabels to Motors Silikon , Landing Gear from T-rex 700, Motors HK
Turnigy D3536/6 1250KV Brushless Outrunner Motor with lots of Power 500Watt ,
, Esc 30 Ampere -max 40A Bec 3A, Props 1045. Lipo 3S 35C Turnigy, All escs solder to a Power Battery ESC Connection Board from Goodluckbuy.
Weight all, incl. Lipo ---- 1300 gramm

No Firmware Update now.

When all was together, I put the Fc and a 6CH Esky RX on Double Side Foam Glue Tape on an extra Plastik Centerplate. Stick all Cables in.
Then Calibration the ACC and...........
First Flight today at 23:15 min in Dark. But the front and rear Leds shine bright enough. Leds also solderd to the esc Board. -----------Starting Motors works fine.
First thinking was --- Ups !! they turn fast at Idle....But is Ok. At the Gain Pot I do nothing yet. Speed up Motors ...Lift to 2-3meters.... Nice Flying.....some trimming at my Cheap super simple esky 6ch and Ok.
I fly only one Lipo tonighte. I fly around in all directions, fast foreward and back, very fast reset of position. I Like that thing from Lift up. More and Video tomorrow. Here for now some pics.

This is a real RTF FC, nothing to programm. Great.+++++

They area very stable and super simple board for sure. Just waiting on more from mahui now. I moved my current one over to my 330X frame, just had the dial the gain back a bit and it works great so far.

hi guys
i have done the hardware mod to the aq50d .. ie. remove R21 and short R19
installed new firmware 1.2 into FC
calibrated the FC leveling via PRO TOOL on the PC

1st flight/battery .. ok good ... almost perfectly level
2nd flight/battery .. leveling was off quite significantly ie. the quad drifted rather fast
so i calibrated using radio ... took off (still on 2nd battery) .. levels out good now
3rd flight/battery ... leveling was off again ... drifting rather fast

i thought no more calibration was required with each fresh battery after the hardware mod ?
yes ... it feels stabler than with firmware 1.0 without the hardware mod

So some people have the new firmware and hardware mod but some are just using the new firmware without the hardware mod.

Is there a final say on the hardware mod, if it IS NEEDED and what it does.

I've upgraded the firmware but awaiting a new frame before I can fly it.

Solution - Question ......Flip in morning ???

Hi all, down my Questions are fixed. Made a Call to Heidekultur, see Posts before from me, he flys aq50pro before us all. So interesting Call. Different RX/TX - you need to handle Calibration ACC different.
If you cant go calibration the normal way. Gas up and Yaw left - Easy try this - go with Gas Trimming up, step by step, between try to Calibrate the normal way. At my Esky I have to push he trimming at Throttle up near to the Middle Point. This works perfect. Now I can Calibrate the ACC.
And my Quad was flip in morning. Lucky that this not happens in Night at first flight. --- If you go from inside to outside, let minimum 15 min Time for the FC to used to the Temp. Then calibrate the ACC.

Problem solved !!! Thanks Carsten ,

Mike

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi all, like Warhox write ---------- stick centering with the button on board.---

Did the blue Led than Flash or blinking ? Mine not, see nothing ??

How at yours. Also when Throttle up and Yaw to right / try also Left , for ACC calibration , nothing happens. The Led no Flashing ? What could be wrong ?

Please Post her in your Start Procedure please.

Mike

Wayno , i had some rather strange reactions with firmware update only, it was flying worse than with 1.0; so i did hardware mod and now it is good.
I have my gain at 8 o'clock position and feel i can still go up without any traces of wobble, and it is so nice to be able to come down quickly on vertical descent..
