This is the lightest F4 1S brushless FC in the current market. Slim and sleek in design, 2.69g in weight and better performance on function for maximum weight savings, power, and responsiveness. I had troubles to bind with the integrated Frsky spi receiver in D16 mode but with CLI commands it worked out.

A new project.
Nice RTR, except for the el-cheapo TX.
Fortunately LHS had a DX5 PRO. Much better!

Motor Kv is used to match the power source, assuming it is adequate, to the prop and its power requirement for desired performance. Motor size is set to handle the input power. If you can get both in the same motor, bingo! If you can't - probably need to change voltage. Hence why motor Kv and weight are the 2 key characteristics.

Okay,

I can honestly say that I almost changed out the motor (Emax BL3526/04) a 860Kv motor with very good specifications that allows up to 5-Cells (18.5 Volts nominal), however, I found a few articles on how to glue back in the lose Magnet from the rotor (rotating bell housing) that contains all of the rotor's magnets.

https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=...-71QEmCs4mYerR

This was possible because after careful disassembly I found ZERO damage inside the motor and inspection was possible using 30X times magnifying glass (Hand held). The Stator's windings at ALL Poles looked great and sounded great on subsequent test run.

After allowing the Gorilla "Clear" Glue to cure all of it's 24-hours as specified per instructions the motor test looked and sounded very good, like new. I am sharing a few pictures of my model's issue with this motor and I will be now going to fly it with the GForce Elite Series 4-Cells, 4000mAH, 30C Lithium Polymer packs.

High Res Pics!

Oh well , to be expected !

Looks like the Hobbyking website is grinding to a halt as people look to be buying stuff before prices change due to the plummeting Aust Bananan ( $ used to be a dollar , has not been a dollar for a long time ) ( 0.58599 ) was .56 , so worth around a half dollar . ( US )

For the US this is an issue as the greenback will be high , and buying US manufactured good will be insanely expensive .
For those sellers using the greenback as the currency for trade ?
I guess they can expect a decline in sales .

Milk vanished from the local supermarket , ?????
It has a relatively short shelf life , so why would people panic buy milk ?
Not like Australia has ever ( in my life time ) had a milk shortage .
I guess there is one now .
Dont take much for people to lose the plot hu ?
I blame the media and the government for their scare tactics .
Are people really this WEAK Minded ?
Cigarettes kill 500,000 Americans a year and coronary decease another million or so ..
In Oz 50,000 are killed by cigarettes ...

So why are people not foaming at the mouth over death sticks ?

Probably because of the government sponsored media scare campaign ... I understand informing people , but this media blitz is just insane . And all these government announcements etc , I call them scare tactics . Because they are scaring people rather than informing them !
I have video footage of people queuing over 100 meters to get into the supermarket .

The COVID-19 pandemic is real. Learn as much as you can about it from reliable sources and accept that you'll have to deal with it, because it's going to be with us for a long time and will get much worse before it starts getting better.

Making time to build a model airplane for our friends 10 year old son. They have a younger special needs child who garners much of their time and attention.

My uncle built some beautiful control line models for me when I was a boy. Recalling his generosity inspired me to complete this project. Now we have to get our friends son out with us next time we fly.

As a FPV man, we spent a lot of time in this and saw a lot of changes in the past few years. We get used to fly with an analog signal for a long time, and we know it isnt the most reliable thing in the world. With occasional static during a flight and cameras that arent made to showcase image quality, we may not be able to reach their full potential. But whether we race or just out for a freestyle, having a clear site can be a huge benefit for FPV Pilots.

DJI brings us a significant change to have a DJI Digital FPV System. As for its benifit, I believe you must know it well than me. At the end of this thread, I will provide you some articals.

Since Caddx released their Vista camera, makes it easier to build a small drone which can support the DJI system. At present you can find it too on Betafpv.com. Different choice for those people who have had the DJI fpv digital system. And for those people who are ready to buy such a system, there is providing $100 OFF to get the Beta95X with DJI FPV goggles. I could say it is the most reasonable price at present. Miss IT or Get IT, it is up to you.



Check the link here to know more details: https://www.dji.com/fpv?site=brandsite&from=nav (BTW, I do like their slogan: Reimagine Your FPV World)
Here are some articals that I collect for your reference.
