Off topic... Already ordered some zippy lipo and the female connector. 2 batteries original is not enough, the advantage is that with a USB adaptor you can easily on the eye one box carry a USB car or home adapter and charge them, but are two expensive cause the shipping, so I am going to adapt the plug. After market lipo plus female adapter I think the weigh is the same, can anybody please confirm it ?

Unfortunately the Rhino is almost 5mm too long.

I guess I thought the battery tray was 38.8mm. It must be bigger than that if the Rhino at 43mm fits perfectly. Thanks for your help.

My contribution... took it to the field on our rc usual saturday meeting... lots of wind, you can hear it on the mic... all my friends joking about size and so on... i gained courage, selected mode 3 and... A POCKET ROCKET... it was my first time on mode 3 and my firts time at that park, i was not confortable because the trees but... i took him about 30 to 40 meters in distance away from us... you can see on my closeby that i have a paper tape rectangular glued on the canoy at back and a triangle at front, that helps a lot to see how he is pointed to us.

I got my RC Eye One today.
What I like
- Very very stable for the size
- Mine is absolutely vibration free. Tried #16 keycam with D-lens and there is no jello in the video, like at all
- The sticks are better than the Hubsan X4 for example, it's possible to make small corrections

What I don't like
- Power limit in beginner mode, it would have been great for aerial video
- Can't tell if the radio is on or off, a LED would have been nice, a LCD screen with at least throttle values even better
- Mode switch from the quad

What I don't understand
- How can you tell the battery is running low? Mine drops down without any warning.

My charger only charges to 4.15V per cell. Is this normal? Why not to 4.20V?

Wish I had a video of mine flying up on the second story of my house. Now it's going to have to spend the night up there.

Hey guys, I found a way to tame the EO on expert mode, break a leg.

RC Logger Eye One broken leg flight (1 min 25 sec)


But seriously, I think the EO learning curve is too rich for my blood, I bought 3 RTF's in a month's time and at the moment have no flyable EO, but tons of spares and accessories if anyone is interested (PM me); a word of warning, this thing needs someone with a college degree in soldering to repair it.

Hey guys, I need some diagnostic assistance.

My EO fell on concrete from a few feet up at low air speed and landed on its head just hard enough to push a few props down on their motor shafts. Fortunately I cut the throttle well before it hit.

I used a razor blade to reestablish the 0.5 mm prop-to-motor housing gap on the shafts, but my right/front motor is now sluggish; it runs, but starts late, and the RPMs aren't high enough, so the EO no longer lifts off. The other three motors run fine.

The motor shaft is straight, and I removed the landing skid and examined the solder joint and cap leads, and they look fine. Tried a tiny drop of light lube on the shaft as well, to no avail. I've tried re-calibrating several times, but it makes no difference.

Anything else I can do, short of ordering a crash kit to replace the offending motor?

Hey Uncle, what part of LA are you at? If you are close enough to me I'll give you some of my stash, I'm about to call it quits with the EO, I know when I'm been licked.
