Checked back and you're right. Had read it myself but I wasn't too sure, hence the question. Looks like the guys didn't notice I had the new PCB . Thank god 10 eyes are better than 8

It will work if you insert a switch on the positive side (red) of the esc power imput.
1 initiate power to the board with esc switch OFF
2 bind
3 after a few seconds initiate power to the esc(flip switch)
It will operate normally now
BEWARE when you,re finished flying turn off power to the esc BEFORE turning off power to the board or turning off tx....If you don,t do this the motor will rev up briefly
when you shut off power to the board . ZDAWG

@ zdawg

What kind of switch did you use on the esc cable? Do you have a link so I can source one? If possible, a pic would help me a lot too . At least I'll get to practise my soldering skills .

To my recollection it does not. Something like this will work.

There are two M 2 and two M 2,5 screws.

Btw: I use the Turnigy 25 A Basic BEC to have an buffer in current. It works great and got not warm.

Brilliant, just what I was looking for, thanks

Cool looking bird, by the way

Fin

Just out of curiosity, any particular reason you have your RX and tail motor on a switch instead of them just being fired up when you plug the battery in? Bet I'll kick myself when I see the answer

Tidy work and really helpful pics Werner, thanks.

Have you found a local, reasonably-priced supplier for this stuff, or do you still use Hobby King and the like?

Sorry not. The importand things like the EH 200, Programmingcard, or the wright Turnigy Nanotech 2000 mA are only from the HK Global warehouse available.
But I got the 25 A BEC and other things from the german warehouse within 2 days (direkt to me without customs)

Good and cheap pinions you can get here:http://http://www.ebay.de/itm/360438327134?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p398 4.m1423.l2649

Yup, thought so. Wasn't sure if I was just too impatient to use their site properly, as it's not very well set up as far as changing currency, warehouse checking, shipping info, etc. are concerned

I think we who live in Germany (and France Roland ) need to get together and petition HK for better local stocking .

Who knows, maybe when R.C.Man gets his hobby shop up and running he'll have a bunch of customers trampling his door down

By the way, are your swash and your head parts painted or metal ?

dont throw away that slightly bent/dented tail boom. divided into 2 equal parts, it is perfect for modded landing gear 'feet'. although its not 1/2" OD, with them 5 or 6 tywraps per foot, the diameter is perfect for pontoons

Only painted but it looks good for me
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Because of many questions " how to get a longer LIPO inside " ??

Look at the pictures.

With this modification you get space for longer LIPOS and you are able to balance the BABY.

At long last I finally had a chance to do some flying. The first video is my F45 with the 1500mah nano-tech battery from Hobby King. I've now mounted it 450 style - angled at the front where the PCB used to be. Then I moved the PCB down above the front landing gear mount. I moved the ESC up to where I think I saw Roland has his - on the right side of the upper frame. I also added bullet connectors to the ESC/Motor so I can easily remove and switch around the connections if needed. Next I moved the RX/Tail battery between the rear skids and I think that's it. Centre of gravity is set pretty nice. It's been quite some time since I've flown so I can't really tell you if it's better or not but my feeling is it's handing FFF much better. I found my F45 used to want to go towards the ground on FFF but now it seems to want to maintain altitude and just go fast. It felt pretty smooth!

This next video is the F645 with the new flat-mounted gyro. First time out flying it, completely stock. It flew quite nicely - no adjustments on the TX or the swash. I was quite impressed by that. I noticed that it feels castrated for power compared to my 3s EH200 setup. I also noticed it doesn't handle pitch and roll movements nearly as well either. A couple times I felt like it was near that point of no return where it would just dive forward or sideways into whatever obstacle it found first. In all fairness I had just flown the modified F45 so I was trying to zip around like I normally would. Overall I was quite pleased and found no cause for concern with the new version.

Nice vids rexless. The first one froze at 2:40 but still had plenty to see. Does the canopy fit over the 3s lipo?
