Today's Test - Even worse.... seems the FC is getting worse every flight.

2019 0818 RAW BetaFPV HX100 Yaw/Roll Wash Out Issue GETTING WORSE (3 min 40 sec)

Posted by Espo 7 | Today @ 07:59 AM | 103 Views
Hi, I was wondering if anyone can help me with this problem. I have a new Mobula 7 v2 that does not bind. I have a Jumper t16 using external rf that will not bind to Mobula. My other quads bind fine with jumper. I am using the proper protocol for frsky d.(spi rx support). I did not flash or change anything in betaflight. The one thing I saw that did not look correct is I have no uart in ports tab. I only have one line and that is USB VCP.
I'm still new with hobby and am struggling on troubleshooting. Thanks

I liked the way the vagabond looked and flew, so i built another one - scaled up 50% to 112" span.

It is covered in doped chiffon over a mylar type film just like my 75" version, only I wanted a red one. The cerise red looked nice on the web so I sent for that. Its not so much red as pink but on the model it looks good and when the sun shines thru the frame on low flypast, you can really appreciate it.

It came out heavier than planned - used old balsa stock which was heavy - and CG came out about 50% with either 2 of 3000 3 cell or a 5000 4 cell lipos. The 3 cell gives about 500W while the 4 cell takes the emax 2826.06 motor up to 700W on a 14 x 6 zinger prop. I fly it on about 400W.

Some photos below with details of the model in the build log here

Photos include one showing breakdown of the wings for transport. 1/4" carbon rods used as joiners, the central ones going thru the fuselage so no rubber bands on show except for thin ones holding on tailplane.

The maiden flight was on a windy morning but I needed a proving flight before going to a flyin. Mick Butler took the video, seen here.

Enjoy - PS, its still got a bit of a dutch roll despite increasing the fin area 10%

The EC1500 is the best engineered foamy I have had. The parts fit perfectly and it all works. Total time for unboxing and programming took me just over 3.5 hrs. Here are some notes:

The ESC has a blue EC5 (90 amp) connector. The Addendum recommends an adapter. I already had an adapter to convert the EC5 to an XT 90 yellow plug to mate with a 4000 65C Graphene Turnigy pack with a black XT 90 connector.

I used a blank model in the the Acro type and named it EC1500. I used an extension bind cable and used forceps to insert it into the 636 receiver port. After inserting the bind plug and plugging in the 4S pack I did not get a blinking LED on the receiver. I pushed in the connectors to the separate BEC and got a blue light on the BEC and flashing RX LED. I checked all the other plug connections to make sure they were seated correctly. I removed the bind plug and bound my DX9 TX to the RX. It bound standing 5 ft away and I could see the plastic elevator “stubs” move full up when I put the fuselage down into a dive. The ramp/door opened up and was hitting my fuselage stooge. I found out that the default switch is A. Position 1 is open and 0 is closed. So make sure your fuselage holder is clear of the ramp. I later put the Ramp/door switch on switch C (Chan 5) and set the speed to 3 seconds for 0 /up, 1 level, and 2 down. Custom voice for position 0 is “Door Closed”. Position 1 is “Door Open”. Position 2 is “Bombs Away”. NOTE: The Airforc/Coast Guard...Continue Reading

After a long absence, I spend an entire day last weekend getting re-acquainted with my Renny and Supra Electric gliders. This after 6 years of not flying, I was even considering selling off my RC equipment.

I am glad to didn't, I still love this hobby!

After reviewing my equipment and determining serviceability, I upgraded my 8 cell transmitter battery to a 1C LiPo 3 cell, which fits inside my Futaba TCAP10. This will be a welcome change to be able to fly an entire weekend without worrying about transmitter batteries!

Now an update from the past, and part of the reason why I stopped flying for all those years. On Saturday, 2/16/2013 at El Dorado State Park in Long Beach, I lost my AVA Electric. I was downwind on final and lost complete control, ended up in a tree, then falling out and damaging the wing and snapping the tail boom in half. Guys at the field said winds on final can get tricky. Personally, I do not think that was it, and not for sake of my ego as a pilot. I remember the airplane not responding to any of my commands. Like a frequency hit. I know its' a tough argument to make using Futaba FAAST 2.4 Ghz. I never really did a post-crash analysis of the debris. There could be many possibilities, including receiver battery got too low.

UPDATE: Just looked at the damage after all these years, (still painful) the stabilizer surfaces and linkages are completely intact, only the elevator pushrod is bend due to impact.

But one thing sticks out in my mind, on final,...Continue Reading
