My girlfriend wanted a few drinks tonight so I bought them. I wanted an 808 #16. Oops, I accidentally bought one. Crap. I want fpv but I have already done ap and it is cheaper and I already know I love it. Only $40 right?

I wish they used different colour LEDs for front & back, left & right night flying orientation.

A local buddy of mine actually soldered on his own led's for his mqx. Said it was really quite easy. He then bought a plug in play kit where you just put a dab of glue on each led and put them where you want, then the adapter plugs into the battery, which then plugs into the quad. Says it works perfect. Ill ask him for some pics here in a bit as I wont see him for a week.

you don't know how deep the rabbit hole goes...

Wait until one day... you realise that you've run-out of glue sticks and just had a crash that needs a hotglue repair! You then find yourself looking around for scraps of old hotglue from previous repairs or old drips on your work table, and spend hours on your knees painstakingly picking and collecting old scraps of hotglue. Just so you have enough to see it melt satisfyingly on the tip of the hotglue gun again! and you can then proceed to make the needed repairs with it.... or not.

I see there is 2 threads running on this Beetle.

I received mine and when you turn the transmitter on the elevator is trimmed full down and the aileron is full trim to the left , I can press the trim tabs and move them back to a central position but after turning the transmitter off and back on the trims are back way to one side again. I want to adjust the trims to a position that the beetle hovers correctly and lock that position to the central trim position.But there must be a way to reset the trims.

Try removing the batteries from it and re installing and see if that cures your problem!! If it doesn't then you probably have a faulty tx

That Battery Glue gun reminds me of my small one I got a few years ago.

Uses 7.4mm Glue sticks and runs on 4 AA's but also has jack for 4.5 to 6V input from small power supply.

Very handy for field repairs and has a nice small nozzle.

I think I got it from Maplin (UK Electrical/Electronics Component seller).

Edit, it was Maplin, they still have them 3.99

This is how it looked when the batteries were first installed and after adjusting trims and turning off , turning back on any time you like and the screen will be the same as the pic.
Also tried removing the batteries for some time , but still the same after turning back on.

You must be using Alkalines. I wish I could get that battery bar with my NiMH.

I've seen people wonder about the need to balance the props. The best reason I can give for doing it is this short video clip.

It's been raining for days - is again - and this was taken at 9.15pm between showers, so the camera struggles with the lighting a little.

As well as smoother video, it's got to be better for the bearings and even the little "which way is up?" sensors to not be subjected to heavy vibration.

Note: it's not that interesting a video, as I clipped out me flying around the (small) garden first and not crashing into the shed when I brought it down rather quickly afterwards.

The angle is off because that particular one of my cameras has the lens glued in a bit crookedly. I (eventually) plan to warm up the glue and straighten it, but it's usually my hat camera and waves around a lot anyway, but the other camera was flat, so...
