Hi, I am flying with Devo 6 and upgrated the TX into 6s... Still working and now I can see the voltage level of the battery...
I was using the Devo 6 in the vid.

Cheers, Eki

Hi all...and thanks Bill. I've had to be away from my helis & quads for awhile due to some health issues.

I made some light kits for the UFO #8 that were very light...under 1 gram. I can probably make some sets for the Ladybird if I'm able to get exact dimensions as I don't have one and probably won't purchase on in the near future.

I've really missed this great hobby and the people here on the forums.

John

Hi John,

I'm sure I speak for the whole rcg crowd when I say that I hope you feel better real soon.

By my estimation, each leg is 70mm long from the center point of the quad to the furthest point out on each leg. The rear of the heli is the one with the orange blades, and at 4:00 or so in the first pic, just almost covered by the end of my caliper, are those two, little, 3-prong plugs I was telling you about. I'll give you the pinout info later when I get by my voltmeter.

I measure 21mm from the top of the plug to the bottom of the frame, so the height of the thing.

I've never lit a heli other than my 4F200 a while back, and I wonder about that search light. Looks like you've got it pointing out toward the front of the model. I'd almost want it pointing straight down, UFO style. The benefit I see there is that I'd like to fly it outside, and it would be nice to be able to flip it and know where down is. Then again, maybe the search light can light the way in forward flight. Hmmmm.

Thanks for considering the project.

Rafa

They usually come with dual rates already set, unless you bought a Devo 7 by itself.

QR Ladybird


Can someone tell me how you keep the ladybird at a constant height? Mine just seems to want to go higher and higher until I kill the throttle.

Unintended Acceleration


Think I'm getting some of the same. Just after liftoff, it just screams up until I kill the throttle. Problem is, this only happenes sometimes indoors. Hope someone has answer for this.

Mine does it indoors and outside which is bad because I almost lost sight of it the other day and killed the throttle only to crash land and break the battery cage!!!

Ditto! Exactly the same obscure phenomenon!

Hello John,

Hopefully someone on here can enlighten us as to what causes this because as far as I know it should "hover" easily. I wonder if it is a tx setting? (Devo 7 here)
