Turbo Ace X-830s


Hi everybody. This is my first post and want to say that I am glad to be here. I just recieved my new Turbo Ace X-830s and it looks pretty good. A lot more machine than the Walkera MX-400 I have.

I have an "RTF" model with the Devo 10 transmitter. I bought it at Wow, and had them install the telemetry module with it. I hope the GPS will be ready soon, I cant get a time frame on that.

When I bought it, they said that a video of my very own Turbo Ace being test flown would be included in a flash drive, it was. I was sure that all I would see is the Wow video of it in flight in front of there building. But open the file and my video was there, with them showing my serial number on the boom before test flying it in a small room. More than I expected.

I understood that it had an"auto hover" setting, and a cruise mode. If so how do I switch from one to the other? Is this the auto stabilizing set up it has? It does settle down when you let go of the controls even in some decent wind, but its not "auto-hover"

Last, I see no telemetry info on the transmitter like I thought I would. My understanding was I would have battery voltage at the motors, and temperature. The way it was ran down to me, was that I would get a warning buzzer, as well as the transmitter vibrating in my hands when battery voltage dropped to 10.8 V.

This was to allow me to land it, and not stress the lipos. How far am I off?

Thank you very much. I had thought possibly that was the case, but I could not find anything. Maybe I didnt look into the sub menus well enough. Would telemetry be under "Function" Model" or "System" menu?

I hope I dont go over board in asking questions sir, I am a newbie worm as yet, and fell lucky just to be here. I just have a lot of money in this thing, and crashing it is not an option. I have lots of helis, and know how to fly but im no ace thats for sure. Thanks in advance..
