One tx module to control all of my RC toys with my taranis!!!
Worked right out of the box and no need to update anything apart from your taranis fw!( Unless you are like me and want to tweak settings a bit )

This jumper 4in1 multimodule tx from here http://hobbycool.com?afmc=2j hobbycool , check it out for Los of other really cool stuff.

Module http://hobbycool.com/jumper-jp4in1-module/ just arrived and I have updated it with my preferences and this is going to be a review on the module and build quality etc as well as bit of a "how to" update the module.(which was not quite as easy as the github instructions and needed a little extra information which I will put at the end of this review. )
It is based on the fantastic DIY multiprotocol tx module work here https://github.com/pascallanger/DIY-...ocol-TX-Module
Opening the box everything was well packed and no damage ,
A visual inspection of the board revealed soldering to be of good quality and no bad joints that I could see.
I already had my taranis loaded with multi module enabled on opentx 2.2 because I have built a module myself before I got this one so to get it working was simply case of plugging it into my tx module bay.

If the module does not push in easily as mine didn't , remove the 4 screws and remove the cover then loosen the 2 screws inside a little and carefully line up the module again moving the board a little till it lines up and push it into place, now tighten the 2 screws and fit...Continue Reading

Yep Les Amis,
Petit test improvis avec le XIAOMI MI DRONE ! Comme je vous l'explique au dbut de la vido, je ne me sentais pas 100% de ma forme ce jour l mais je n'ai pas rsist quand le soleil montr son nez.
Donc voici un premier jet pour se rendre compte de la qualit de cet engin, mme si le site n'est pas forcment trs interressant, les images parlent d'elles mme ... Propres, Fluides, Stables et Nettes, ce sont les premiers adjectifs qui me sont venus l'esprit quand j'ai dcouvert et mont les rushs de ce superbe appareil. Les modes de vol proposs et tests fonctionnent la perfection, aucuns soucis du dcollage l'atterissage . De par sa taille et ses leds, le drone reste visible 200m sans problmes, ce qui facilite son pilotage et sa prise en main. Je reste donc sur mon avis de dpart et continue affirmer que le XIAOMI MI DRONE est aujourd'hui, le meilleur rapport qualit prix de sa catgorie.

XIAOMI MI DRONE Test en vol, fonctions et premières impressions . (17 min 19 sec)

NOTATAZ : 19.5/20 Le site n'est pas terrible mais le rendu est superbe

Les + : Stable, Maniable, Efficace, Superbe rsolution et transmission vido !

For those 510s with the simple T style connector into the back of the alternator, this is a pretty straight forward conversion.

The Alternators
The OLD (externally regulated Alternator) had the N and F connected by the plastic T connector.

N Neutral was connected by a Y (yellow) wire.
[This is the top of the T connector]
F Field was connected by a W/B (White, black stripe) wire.
[This is the stem of the T connector]
The NEW IR ALT (internal regulated alternator) will have two connections, also in a T configuration like the old unit.

S Sense is connected to the battery (direct +12 Volts)
[This is the top of the T connector]
L Lamp is connected to the Warning lamp light.
This connection has TWO functions. By Sensing the circuit is turned on when the ignition is, it will energize the alternator. SECOND: when the alternator FAILS, and the engine is running, it will GROUND this connection providing a ground path to turn on the ALT warning lamp. (you should see the ALT lamp glow when the ignition is first turned on, before starting the car).
How to modify the wiring
Before tossing that old voltage regulator into the trash bin
cut OFF the connector block.

Splice the W (white) wire to the Y one. (Sense circuit)
Splice the W/R (white/red) wire to the W/B one. (Lamp circuit)

This the wiring at the HARNESS, compare it to the regulator wiring, both should be the same but some replacement units did not follow...Continue Reading

Having been building models for over 60 years its nice to find new Products that make model building easier and better
having used some of the BEACON ADHESIVES products on my last project, I decided to scratch build one of my favorite
EDF jets a larger version of the SKY ANGEL 50 mm Hawk - my scratch built version is approx 20% larger and is fiberglass
over foam with a READY TO FLY WEIGHT of 13.5 oz using the same basic set up a XRP 50 mm fan ,30 amp ESC and a
1000 3 s 30c lipo. the basic construction is home insulation foam from Lowe's , cut with hot wire .then sanded .
then covered with Foam Tac Fiberglass cloth and Foam tac Foam finish which is a water based product
which is also odorless and easy to use . this made a very strong model and also allowed for very thin wings but
strong with little flex and no spar. the model came out very nice ,light about the same weight as its smaller counterpart.
as originally built it didn't fly correctly- I needed to add a cheater vent to get better airflow- the model now with over 100
flights has been retired to become Foam Tac's Product display for trade shows

Coupon and gift certificates at tower has lead to another plane being added to the fleet. The Phoenix Piper J-3 Cub GP/EP/Gas ARF 90.5" is a stand off scale model that has few oddities as far as scale fidelity. Some profiles area a bit wonky but over all she's a nice plane. The covering is absolutely flawless , I mean zero buggaboos anywhere. The wood build part is very well done although tick heavy at 14# AUW which give a wing loading of 25 oz./sq.ft. She flys well enough however. Supplied tires were rock hard an I replaced them with inflatable DuBro Big Wheels. The landing gear is not articulated like the full size and has springs instead of bungees but with no movement it's a moot point.

The dummy engine supplied was horrible and hit the dust bin. I bought a 1/5th scale e 65 HP Continental engine kit from Top Notch Products as a replacement.
Graphics are from Callie, the stock ones were wet slides which I don't like. This brings up one oddball time that of the scale size. She's 4.75 scale which is a tick bigger than 1/5th by a 1/4 or so which makes the engine a bit small,the graphics were scaled up by Callie.

The model has flaps which were not a stock J-3 item but were on the PA-11 which was a J-3 production mod. But as always you look long enough and you'll find a prototype for anything. Control horns are different and actually pretty neat but they could have made them yellow. I went with a 1.20 glow equivalent sized AXI 5320/18 turning a 16 x 10 prop...Continue Reading

Hello everyone,

So I have a TOZO Q1012 drone which has brushed motors with gears. These gears have worn away(as you see in the picture). Hence, I’m planning to change the stock brushed motors to brushless motors(rs2205 2300KV brushless motor).

Has anyone done it before?
Or is it even possible to change?

I wanted some suggestions about which esc and battery will the flight controller work with .

Thanks in advance
