I been trying to find out the reason my P3S after a small crash doesn't recognize a gimbal pitch. However I can manually control pitch via The Remote Controller. Not knowing the programming route how Litchi controls pitch I'm hoping you can help. Other than that the the AC operates normally when I fly all signal strength runs in the high 90s to 100%.

I'm just getting back into R/C after about a 15 year hiatus. I was a glow engine guy. Back in the day electrics were not considered "serious" model airplanes. I have now discovered electric flight, freed from the noise and mess of castor oil and glow plugs. However, the Lipo demons still concern me. I store and cycle my batteries in metal and/or glass away from any combustible material I've seen really scary videos of battery fires that cannot be put out because they are chemical fires. I never have had any problems with Nicads. If they would make safe lithium batteries I could relax and start having fun again. I learned how to flip props without chopping my finger, so I would like to store and manage my Lipos without worry also.

BLHeli_32 ESC's:

The new X-Racer Quadrant 25A/35A is flashed with the latest BLHeli_32 program. Dshot up to at least Dshot1200, and at rates up to at least 32kHz is now supported. BLHeli_32 is the 3rd generation of BLHeli firmware after BLHeli and BLHeli_S. BLHeli_32 runs on an ARM 32bit MCU, initially it will be on a Cortex-M0 running at 48MHz, but there are MCUs out there that can run a lot faster.

The way “pass-through” works is quite similar to previous versions such as BLHeli_S. Basically it uses the flight controller as a programming tool or adapter to allow the computer to talk to the ESC’s directly, so you can change settings or flash new firmware etc.

Following the previous clever design of the BLHeli_S version, you can choose to solder the 4 ESC’s together as a single “4-in-1” ESC board and stack it under the flight controller. Or you can also install them separately on the arms. This gives great flexibility how you want to build your quad.

Normally with 4in1 ESC, when you damage one ESC you would have to replace the whole board. But with the Quadrant you can replace just the faulty ESC by desoldering it. All 4 ESC’s are identical so you don’t have to worry about getting different ones for each corner.

Thought id make an informative thread about my high power light discharger for my lipos.
Using an actual charger for discharging lipos takes forever and is not good for the charger itself. So decided to make this. It's great. You can discharge or cycle packs in complete silence and your not having to fly aircraft within 50% capacity and not use full power etc.
Also don't have to have a noisy motor rig setup to do what this unit does. Also safer than the latter if a prop busts etc...

Ive done this with help from one of the great minds on Rcgroups - GryphonRC.

It's made using heavy duty DPTA switches from Ebay and 50watt Halogen bulbs and mainly 12awg silicone wire. Ive used 8awg wire to connect packs to the middle of the circuit board.

I have 2 sets of 23 terminal metal connector blocks on either side of the rear of the unit.

It's a 24 bulb system with 6 switches.

Each switch operates 4 bulbs both in series and parallel and the DPTA switches make it very simple to change between series and paralell. Switch up for series and down for parallel, simple.

All are all connected together giving great incremental control over current and watts being drawn.  Very useful for initial cycling of expensive new packs.

I shall be adding a separate smaller 4 switch / 16 bulb unit that I can connect when needed to boost amp draw.

I can charge new packs to 4.19/cell and then do a first discharge of no more than 45% Mah at about 20amps. This is made easy by using an...Continue Reading

The most frequently asked question from my friends recently is "How GDU Byrd Premium 2.0 Compete with DJI Mavic Pro". The main differentitations are as below:

First of all, Byrd has universal flying platform, which enables Byrd compatible with 1080P, Gopro, 4K, thermal camera, ILDC
(Interchangeable Lens Digital Camera) gimbal,10 times zooming gimbal & camera and one button stretching gimbal & camera; hence it saves the Byrd owners the cost of changing a camera.
Attached photo 1 was shot by GDU Byrd 2.0 + ILDC gimbal + Sony RX 100 M2 camera.
Here is GDU thermal camera (resolution 640*480) photo (attaced photo 2) &video:

Secondly, Byrd’s diagonal size is 622mm when unfolded; its net weight is 1890g. This design enables Byrd to resist 29-38km/h level wind. Attached photo 3 is the size comparision between Mavic Pro and Byrd Premium 2.0.

Thirdly, GDU Mobile SDK, Payload and Remote Controller allow consumers to customize different functions according to different usage scenario. Here is one of SDK application videos in agriculture mapping:

Hi, so I recently bought some new motors and escs. Also a new qx7 and x4r with sbus. I hooked that to my naze32 rev 5 and even did the inverter trick. I now can connect and turn on motors with transmitter. The problem now is that the motors when turned on will not go at same levels and some of them will continue to rise in power until I turn it off. In clean flights master key I can move the motors all at once. I read that it should still fly but mine just jumped and did a flip and landed upside down. Also the escs only have a negative and talking cable on the part that connects to naze so I have to have a cable come from one of the positive leads to the middle pin to give naze board power is there a better way to do this idk. Also I'm trying to add switchs to the drone but for some reason I can't make any of the aux work. I should have 16 channels to choose from so what happening on the receiver port on cleanflight I can only make first four aux move and nothing else. Please help iwhat to fly and this has taken so long every time I get in air something happens and I can't fly anymore I just want to fly

The AKK KC02 is a FPV KIT that uses a very good combinations of components starting with a 1/3" 600TVL Sony Super HAD II CCD sensor and finishing with a 40 channels video transmitter with 600mW output power.

It seems every time I felt better, The cancer would come back with a vengeance.
My red blood cell and platelet levels got so low the emergency room would not let me leave without a fresh transfusion.
My transfusion intervals have gone from every nine months to every few days.
So back to Boston I went. New specialist, new look at the problem.

Guess what? I'm missing gene number C7. that gene tells the bone marrow to produce blood.
I start a new regime next week to bypass C7. If that works, great. If not, then it's bone marrow transplant time.
If the Drs can get the blood levels up, I'll have some energy and then they can go after the cancer again.
