M,
Yep. It took me a while to type the whole story after your original post. No problem. Good that you figured it out.
Cheers,
Jim

I got the Ladybird V2 and it's a blast! Seems to have a decent payload capacity too, easily flows with my #16 on it.

Welcome to the Ladybird fraternity. For some reason that doesn't sound right... Lady... fraternity...

Really good fun, nice and stable, but switch to roll mode and you can get fancy.
Stick a camera on and really cool micro fpv, still trying to get a working vtx on it.

+1! Although the V2 is pretty good as well.

I busted my V1 circuit board, and replaced it with a V2. I'm *almost* as pleased with the V2 as with the V1.

I have both the V1 and the V2 and I have to agree that the V2 is almost as good as the V1 but if you can afford it, the V1 will be money well spent. The V1 is the standard by which all the others are measured and although the V2 is the closest to the V1 there are some significant differences as well not the least of which is the sub-standard transmitter that comes with the V2 (Devo 4) as well as the ability to upgrade the firmware and the support of telemetry function on the V1 (with a supported transmitter: Devo 6s, 8s, 10, 12s and 7E).

Already?? That didn't seem to last very long. How many packs have you put through it would you say?

Quite a few, and a lot of punishment.
I have a feeling it was a bit duff from the start, it had difficulty keep stable on that axis sometimes, mainly during descents. I slowly lost more and more loft until it just couldn't keep level any more.

Double post sorry....

How do you balance a quadrotor? I've flown my Ladybird a few times with the #16 taped to it, but I'm having a difficulty balancing it. Just now when trying it kept flying back and to the right, and I couldn't work out a balance for it.
Googling didn't Gove me an answer, but I may not have searched quite the right wording.
Without a load on its flying fine.

S,
Here are some general instructions to balance a full size, mini and micro multicopter: Tie a string on each of the arms and suspend it between something like two chairs on one axis at a time, and then balance the added weight of the camera and or accessories by moving them or the lipo so the axis is balanced. Then do the same for the other axis. With experience you can test it and then get it very closely balanced by holding each end of the arms on one axis with the end of your index finger and then checking the other axis the same way...Simple
Cheers,
Jim

Did you also see these on their from idea fly

mini I-Fly 4


mini I-Fly 4s


Hopefully we can get a real supplier of these and it doesn't end up being a ds4u exclusive or something.

I want to know how they are getting these exclusives with the way people have been treated in the past


Still just looks like another clone quad, but I have to admit the canopy's are really sweet!

I like the design of the second one. How do you orientate it though?
