from what i've read, Losi mini-t or micro-t uses the same connector. You may find one at your LHS.

Does the micro dean add too much weight for this bird? i've thought about using them on this.

I skipped over your comment accidentally the first time Muck. I'll swing in the local hobby store this weekend as well. ( A good enough excuse to go anyway ! )

If I head out this weekend, I'll do that. Better to check. I'm more concerned that I'll end up buying another plane or something though ... It's dangerous for me to stop there

After 40 or so flights I decided to try green mode yesterday. In green mode the roll cancelling with rudder seems to be reduced but it it still there which I hate.....very annoying. With that said I pulled off a good number of successful front and back flips as well as a few rolls, rolls are more difficult then flips I find.

Another thing I noticed is the effect of cold on these cells....now I have been flying lipo's since they first came out and have noticed the effect in the past but these cells seem to be bad in terms of cold performance to the point I questioned if I got a full charge.

Still loving this little thing.

Cheers,
Jim

Hey Rafa,

It's good to be back! I appreciate you sending me the Ladybird dimensions awhile back. I decided to wait until I had one in hand before building a light set for her.

This little bird is a LOT of fun, especially with lights for night flying.

Regards,
John

Thanks for that link Muck. Appreciate it.

My local store is a Hobbytown, and it's fully loaded with air and land. It should be ok, as there aren't any new releases (yet) sitting on their shelves that I'm interested in. But there is always CA, spare parts, etc

I'm on good terms in the house, having just sold two helis today actually LOL. Of course that's because I have some plans cooking to replace them with a plane and a micro fpv kit I'm looking to order soon... but let's keep that between us here on the thread...

AP Set Up


Fitted the stripped down 808 #11 with a tiny 3.7v 30 mah LiPo and taped it place to the bottom of the battery compartment. Tried a jumper cable from FCB to camera but ended up with too much 'noise'. The new AUW is 41.7 grams, LB with stock battery is 33.1 so pretty good all in all. First test flight was a bit breezy so I kept it low altitude and close by.
Ladybird AP @ 41 7 Grams AUW (1 min 11 sec)
