to mount the 24mm lens, I put the tray in the most back position, adjusted the height, adjusted the HDMI-AV konverter, added 10gr to adjust roll, very similar to what I did with the stock lens as they are comparable in size and weight.

best regards

Ferdinand

P.S.: no filter on the lens is possible.

Do you have any ideas what could be the problem here? This happens in flight or on the ground. Sometimes it is gone after couple of seconds and works normal, sometimes it needs reset.

z15g fail (0 min 16 sec)



**EDIT** - I changed the radio and the receiver. For the moment it is working ok. I hope it was just a bad radio (Turnigy 9x - Frsky module, worked ok for two years) Tnx Aaalie, you gave me an idea to check the radio.

Bad Transmitter maybe? DX8 used to have a (very little) problem with the rudder and aileron stick, see also:
Spektrum DX8 problem (1 min 2 sec)


wich can be easily solved by cleaning the contacts from the little connector in the Transmitter.

@Aaalie,

I had a similar problem. There was a recall on the Dx8. I sent it back to Horizon and they fixed it.

Slightly off tipic:


Does anyone know the dimensions of the gopro3? All I can find on the web is 30% smaller but no specifics.

Thanks!

Is there already a spare part pdf for the Zenmuse like the one for the S800?
Will there be one?

Looks good! Are those retracts?

My custom 1100mm octo with retracts is flying now - did a 12 min 30sec flight in 35C heat fully equpped yesterday (7.5 kg), including an ascent to 70m and some fast forward and reverse flying (to check camera angles with the big motor-deck). Experimenting with props atm but very windy today so no flight trials.

Whoah! 12min 30 sec is quite good, I think. We have almost the same weight. Mine's about 7.3 kg with a single 8000mah 6s from hobbyking. I get an average of about 10minutes.

Yes, those are retracts but I'm not using them currently. I still have to change motor/prop orientation and put them on top of the riggers.

Thanks.

I'm carrying a lot of batteries in that max weight - 18,200 mAh of 4s batteries. There are connections for 6 batteries on the battery pad, in pairs. Mostly I fly with 4 x 3300 mAh 4S Hyperions at an all up weight of just under 7 kg. , which is good for 10 mins if you stretch it.

I'm not sure if this is the info you need.

Goto menu.
Click on camera.
Scroll until you find Drive mode. Click on this.
Now scroll until Remote Cdr has been highlighted and click on it.

all those modes are working if NEX is setup propper. You should avoid to use autofocus at all as sometimes the cam does not react on trigger in autofocus mode.

The IR signal has sometimes an issue with direct sun onto either NEX or IR Sensor. You can cover IR sender and Sensor with some shield or if you rebalance the Zenmuse for a different optic move the IR LED unit straight in front of the Sensor before re-balancing.
