Review - GOTECK GS-9018C Brush Micro Servo 9g 1.5KG



Here is a link to the Video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=60Vgn6yD7_M

This is an Analog Servo I plan on using in my future Mini Parkjet Builds.
It's very inexpensive and has some good field testing from e3Scott in our "Glue & Fly Series" F-22 Mini V3.
So far, they have performed well.
I will be doing the Field Testing of this Servo in our New "Glue & Fly Series" F-22 Mini V2.5
I have provided a link to e3Scott's Youtube Channel Below.

iFlight SucceX F4 12A Micro 2-4S Flytower Fly Tower Built-in OSD 200mW VTX 16*16MM Hole for FPV Racing Drone Quadcopter DIY Models

https://www.xt-xinte.com/iFlight-Suc...s-p583184.html

Specifications :

iFlight SucceX Mirco F4 fly tower, from the wing of the xing equipment. The Mirco F4 is a new, streamlined, three-layer tower structure that is highly integrated with new features, optimized for internal circuitry, and simple layout for a cleaner and cleaner wiring.

This is an F4 flying tower developed for small aircraft with a hole of 16*16. The pin is connected to facilitate the installation and maintenance of the flying hand. The flight control performance of the F411 microcontroller and the MPU6000 gyroscope are very good. Built-in programmable RGB LED interface, external LED, set LED color, function, status. The built-in OSD chip can monitor the flight status of the flight at any time. The overall cooperation with the image transmission can change the image transmission point, power, flight control parameters, etc. using IRC Tramp.

12A's four-in-one ESC pad semi-extended structure, does not take up space, and is stable, supports 2-4S battery input, lasts 12A current, BLHELI_S firmware, supports Dshot 600 and other protocols.

Got a couple of pretty special planes this weekend. Been drooling over this plane for 6 long years. Good things come to those who wait.
We were hoping to get them all finished for an international furball but thought a careful build for a record attempt would be more prudent.
These were so hot off the presses that Tim didn't have time to complete his usual cleanup and detailing. That's actually a good thing so I can give them a thorough inspection and gain a little insight on what it takes to make these puppies.
I carefully sanded the flashing off of the fin on one of them today. It's a beautiful fit to the wing.
Thinking about using the KST HS-320 recommended by top pilots but it's an HV servo. Hmm, where to find 14MM Li-Ion battery packs.

I'm just getting started with RC's and I was looking for some flight controllers that would last and be very versatile. I found the pixhawk hk32, but I was wandering if it was worth it to get the pixhawk 4.

The Tesla autonomy show had a lot of nuggets about what the typical self driving car startup does. There's a chip which is a scaled up version of a GPU, using stock IP that doesn't use very current feature sizes, but marketed like crazy as a revolution. Something never mentioned before, but which slowly oozed out over the last 5 years is how training the networks still entails manually annotating thousands of images. They have some interpolation, some LIDAR to generate annotations, but most of it is mass Bangalore labor.

A more telling feature was the use of neural networks in place of all conditional statements. Determining if a car was changing lanes was an exercise in thousands of sets of car coordinates manually classified as lane changes. They couldn't just classify it based on x > threshold. Enormous effort was spent doing it with a neural network. How much more effort would have been required to make a pose classifier based on neural networks instead of if statements?


There's still no magic in using a neural network to detect a path. It has to be trained with thousands of images of every section of path in every lighting condition. They all have to be manually annotated or interpolated with path coordinates. All the network does is compress the training set & replay it. The network has to be more like millions of neurons instead of hundreds.

This is a fun conversion of an 11 inch wingspan toy bird ornithopter to hobby grade RC. I bought the Electric Flight Bird on sale and chose the 1-channel version, versus the 2-channel one at a higher cost, thinking of a conversion to 3-channel control. After a few months of experimenting, I landed at the V-tail version-five presented. Not complete, there is still detail to add to the tail and reshaping of the battery mount.

My creation consists of:
- replacing the stock fuselage and tail feathers with balsa, carbon fiber and foam.
- installing a Spektrum circuit board 'brick'.
- adding landing gear bent from 0.020" music wire and held in heat shrink tubing pockets.
- a fuselage 'keel' that permits fore and aft movement of the 1-cell flight battery for CG adjustment.
- flying with a 130 mah Lipo.
- adding a rubber nose cone (from Horizon Hobby micro airplanes) for a beak/bumper.
- replacing the stock crank arms, that flap the wings, with shorter versions to reduce binding.


Worth a closer look are the crank arms that I replaced. The stock crank arms worked fine with the wings not installed. The 6mm diameter electric motor would turn the gears very smoothly from fully closed to fully opened. However, after the wings were installed they would press tightly onto one another in the fully closed position, forcing the motor to push through this friction point. Seeing the problem, I replaced the stock crank arms with ones that have a hole spacing of...Continue Reading

I have a Foxx s911 and when I go straight to full throttle it twitches forwards and the light to the on and off switch blinks but if I slowely speed up it's fine but then I can go in reverse starting with the throttle all the way up. I don't know if it if wiring or what so if anyone has any suggestions or questions pls ask.
