Hi guys, I'm developing a new project using a Spektrum SRS4210 receiver but I'm completely new in this field and I have a problem.
The receiver never goes into binding mode, I'm trying to power it up using an arduino just to connect the RX to my controller (Spektrum DX4X) but when I turn it on the led never starts blinking. I've even tried to put the bind plug in the disable port but it doesn't work.
Please help me, Thanks!

Recently I made an offer to Arcright, to design and 3D print a VTx housing that allowed a fan to cool it.....
The VTx is a Mateksys VTx 1G3.....attached to this will be a micro heatsink.
The fan is just 20mm Diameter.
Everything was very small, but an interesting little project.
So here is the result, I’ve included the STL files should anyone want to print one.

Micro Su-27 Brushless Project .

Projected weight = ? ( No idea )
The little 08026 on 1s puts out some 42 grams of thrust @ around 25,000 rpm .
So as long as the completed flying weight is under 42 grams , I can be a happy camper .
So far pilling everything onto my scales I get 23.7 grams ( missing one servo ) .
But there will be trimming involved to shorten wires and reduce weight ( so ??? ) .
The first one with the F949 flight control board and brushed 10mm motor came out at 32.6 grams flying weight .
So there might be some hope ..

Tethered drone Another function of this tether is data fiber optic cable. When natural disasters occur, communication physical facilities such as base stations are often damaged. The complete restoration takes time. The payload of a tethered drone is generally 5kg-15kg, and the flying height can reach 200 meters. Therefore, a micro base station can be placed, and Signals are transmitted through optical fibers. As long as the plane rises to 50 meters, it can grasp the situation within a few kilometers.

Generate multi-spectral images with the help of a multi-spectral imager equipped on the system to intuitively and comprehensively monitor the surface water environment quality status, and provide thematic maps of environmentally-friendly drone water eutrophication, water bloom, water transparency, and pollution status of suspended solids outlet In order to achieve the purpose of monitoring the water quality characteristics of environmental protection drones. The drone can also be equipped with a mobile atmospheric automatic monitoring platform to monitor the atmosphere in the target area. For pollution factors that cannot be monitored by the automatic monitoring platform, a sampler can be used to collect atmospheric samples in the air and send them back to the laboratory for analysis. The UAV remote sensing system has a strong ability to support safe operations, can enter high-risk areas to work, and effectively avoids the safety risks of monitoring and sampling personnel.

VD5M FrSky 5ch Rx (0 min 37 sec)

I have had this receiver on hand for ? Almost 2 years maybe and never got around to using it .
With my recent interest in Micro Su-27's , I thought it might be time to blow the dust off this Micro Rx and give it a go .
I have some small servos , and I have some 1s ESC's ..
And I have some small brushless motors that are 1s capable if not 1s ..

Anyhow .. I have not seen much info on this Rx ...

Ch2 and Ch5 = D8 ... Use the bind plug to connect .. I put power into Ch3

The Rx will go into bind mode when power is added ...
Have your Tx in bind mode or put it into bind mode ..
For me the bind was so fast I never saw it ..
I removed the bind plug and added a micro servo and it looks to work just fine ..
Power is VIA a 1s ESC ...

This Rx apparently can do V8 mode ( Ch1 and Ch5 ) , but I could not get a bind ..
Maybe some frequency offset ?

Anyhow , will probably use this Rx for my next Micro Su-27 build . It will give me more aileron ! ( Than the F949 board )
Now , what motor to use ?

Even when starting from an advantageous position at the Tomcat's six o'clock. Trying to keep the reticle steady on target for a couple of seconds is not easy. The outcome is all but certain. Or is it?

Beta95X Whoop Quadcopter (HD Digital VTX)
Coupon: Beta10 -
NOW available from BetaFPV
The Beta95X has the CadDX Vista DJI Air Unit which is flown with the DJI goggles. The recording in 720P takes place on the goggles. The quad has 2.5 inch propellers with F4 FC, 1106 4500KV motors and 32 bit ESC's with 16A. Empty weight 110g. It is flown with a 450mAh 4S battery

When the Beta85X HD came onto the market, the enthusiasm was great. Unfortunately, the Beta85X was a bit too heavy for the 2 inch propellers, so you could fly around with it, but real acrobatic tricks do not go so well. The Beta85X 4K also had a really good FPV camera with 4K video recording, but was even worse to fly.

Now comes the Beta95X HD which either has an analog HD camera or even better, with the DJI digital video transmission. The Beta95X has the DJI camera with the digital air unit CADDX Vista VTX under the blue canopy. Now you can fly with digital technology from DJI FPV with razor-sharp FPV live images and the video can be saved in HD ready quality in the DJI glasses , only 720p. The DJI camera with the CADDX Vista VTX weighs just 29 grams. There is also a decent 3.5 gram RushTank antenna. Here, the recording function in the Air Unit was dispensed with in order to save...Continue Reading

Jumper R8 Receiver - 8-channel PPM/16 channel SBUS, D16 /LBT/D8 compatible firmware

I decided to open new thread regarding the new compatible firmware for Jumper R8 Receiver.
In short I made a new firmware to flash Jumper R8 in order to have use of SPORT signal and analog voltage for battery.
With the new firmware the user will have access additionally to LBT and D8 protocol along with many other features that will be described below.

There are some HW designs flaws that required for the user to do some HW modifications.
I will detail more the problems in this thread.

Flashing new firmware.
Flashing new firmware on Jumper _R8 connections.
Use STlink V2 programmer.

connect STLink device ,press Target/connect.
If you receive "Read out protection" enabled warning, go into "Option bytes" and disable it.
Press "Erase/Chip" after that press "Program&verify" load the binary file to be flashed.

This receiver features protocol/modes selection:
The default protocol(after flashing and no jumper) is D16
1) Jumper CH1-CH3 at start change receiver mode to X(D16)protocol channels 1-8 output PWM.
2) Jumper CH2-CH4 at start change receiver mode to X(D16)protocol channels 1-8 output PWM with no telemetry.
3) Jumper CH3-CH5 at start change receiver mode to X(D16)protocol channels 9-16 output PWM.
4)Jumper CH4-CH6 at start change receiver mode to X(D16)protocol channels 9-16...Continue Reading

Just ordered this eStar kit from Esprit. However; I was going to purchase the eStar Aeronca C-3, but the Decathlon was right under it's listing. I've been wanting a Decathlon for some time, but wanting a smaller than 67". Actually less than 50" and there it was.........

Wingspan: 43.5" (1100mm)
Length: 30.5" (775mm)
Weight: 21-23 oz. (600-650g)

The Bellanca Super Decathlon is the best aerobatic trainer around. Powered by a Lycoming 180hp engine, this aircraft can be stressed to 6 Gs positive and 5 Gs negative. It's easily capable of 4 minutes of sustained inverted flight. The Decathlon's symmetrical wing makes it ideal for inverted maneuvers. This highly prefabricated kit belongs in the "super scale competition" models category. Once built, the airframe is extremely light and clean but still able to withstand the high loads and stresses associated with aerobatic flight.

The manufacturer uses the latest construction techniques including Laser CNC cutting to achieve high strength and low weight. Each part and every detail are meticulously made.

Will start soon.....
