This just keeps getting better . I saw "demo" and didn't look any further, figuring, incorrectly of course, that it would be useless.

Just unwrapped a HK 2-4 cell Lipo alarm, wondering what processor it had on. Unfortunately it's an unmarked 14 pin one. Reprogramming one of these would have been a neat solution. As it is, it's a good source of parts for under $2.


cheers,

My camera fun has ended prematurely

After my first day of the camera, I realized how bad my props were and replaced all four of them. Then I made a camera mount canopy using the water bottle idea from another thread. I only had a few minutes to play around, but still wanted to see what I'd get video wise. Took off and it handled better than when I had the camcorder mounted below. Flew around for a few minutes before the "flutter death spiral" kicked in.

Everything would have been ok, but a slight wind pushed it towards the pool -- argh! Interestingly enough, the quad floated. I don't know if it floats in general, or because of the inverted water bottle mounted on it. Either way, the electronics in it stayed dry and so did the camera....or so I thought.

I immediately took it inside my house and hooked up the camera to my computer. I watched a few minutes of the video. Much better and no vibrations! Right after that, I had to leave. Got back home a few hours later and was greeted by some error messages from the laptop saying that the drive (the camera) had to be initialized. Ever since then, the camera turns on, but doesn't seem to do much more than that.

I guess I need to order a new one. Wish I would have gotten more than 2 days out of the first one

try just a little more throttle and it should come "unstuck" from the ground and sit in the air nicely
I have the same problem, the quad goes forward when I try to lift it. I have increased speed and it lifts, but it is totally uncontrollable. Never stays in the air, always goes forward.

Im very disappointed, wait for a month for this!

Any other idea? Is there any way to compensate this with de RC?

hi, I got the LED port on my v929 receiver board, tried place my voltmeter on the port and trigger the right button on my stock transmitter. It is giving out 3.3v which i am able to place my own LED.

May I know whats the name of the female connector. At least I can make my own cable instead of solder wire on it.

Which TX is this? My RTF one, bought a couple of months ago, has the empty ports and came with a TX that doesn't have a working right button and has v929/v939 written on the faceplate. As near as I can tell it's the same TX BG sells separately.

Also haven't heard yet of anyone who's managed to get them to operate from any other TX.

cheers,
Andrew

Excellent links. I had just received a pack of the wired ones from ebay this week.

One thing I seem to need is a source for light wire. I'd like paired wire for replacing connections to the motors or for adding in lights. Does anyone have a good source for this or know what the correct guage/name for this type of wire is so I can search Ali / Ebay? Thanks!

It's not paired, but I'm using Kynar Wire -Size : 30 AWG, solid.

Or Teflon Coated Wire 36AWG (but they are very thin)
Red : http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=11849
Black : http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=11850

Or Enameled Wire

Or Ribbon Cable 28AWG (Computer)

Get mQX motors if you don't mind soldering.

For example :

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Blade-MQX-BL...o_Control_Toys

Mabe you can get them at a LHS nearby.
