Another silverized whoop, the Eachine E011.

Getting it to flash properly was a huge pain, but worth it.

I have merged the standard github version from silverxx with the acromode version from notfastenuf. I now have level and acromode available. Thanks both if you!

It flies like a dream, and it is not as powerhungry as I expected!

The canopy i grabbed from thingiverse, and i have modded it with a dremel. The camera mount is my own design.

Today i've modified my FS-i6 to fit an internal MTX9D multiprotocol module.

I have connected it to the mainboard of the receiver by using the tracepads.
The module's power line has been routed to an extenal switch, allowing me to cut the power to the module for easy reset - or turn it off when playing simulators completely.

The module's led has been removed from the multiprotocol board and is also re-routed to an external led that is mounted on the top of the controller.

Here is the pinout: of the module

and here you can see how it's supposed to be connected to the transmitter board:

if you are planning to do this, and need some help, drop me a comment!

Here's a quick mod I have done on the FlySky FS-I6. Due to limited space inside the case you cannot use a LiPo pack, so you are restricted to using a 4xAA or 4xAA Rechargable NiMh battery pack.

I figured that an old phone battery can provide quite some mah and are compact enough to fit inside the battery bay.

  • old li-on 3.7v phone battery

Wire everything together. Basically it's in this order

Battery --> Charge+Protection Board --> DC-DC Stepup Converter --> FlySky

When you wired everything up, and tested if the unit powers on, use some sticky tape and tape the 2 pcb's to the inside of the transmitter case. Pop the lead for the battery thru the hole at the black wire so you can have access thru the battery bay.

And a small bonus: if you line-up the Protect & Charge board and drill a small hole, you can also power & charge your battery using a micro-usb adapter.

Note: Use the screw on the trimpot on the DC Stepup Converter to dail the voltage to 6.0 volts before connecting it !
