Water spider landing gear


I used some small cable ties and it worked pretty well. It bounces nicely.

Ties are also protecting motor cables.

does anyone know where i can get a set of replacement transmitter stick ends? you know, like the fancy aluminum anodized ones they make for more expensive transmitters. i separated the end from the stick part and it looks non-standard . the stock plastic ones aren't grippy enough, my thumbs keep slipping off them.

Cool, how did you attach them?

Your X4 has gone from looking like a little Frog to a water boatman...

I found these but I don't know if they will fit for you...

One thing to maybe try is to fill the tips of your stock stick ends with a silicon sealant, you can use wet fingers to shape it into a dome, leave it set the required amount of time then you will have nicely "rubberised" stick tips.

I bought this and used it to make tires for a 1/87 scale Rc Mercedes Coach

Has a good amount of grip to it.

I read that it should only be calibrated one time.

Thanks!

Hi all the experts out there
Has anyone got an answer for Impakt as for no reason I have started getting the same problem .
Was no problem before and have checked all the obvious like fluff on spindles,loose props etc .
Once going through all the motions is perfect again !

Cheers Jim

Hi Jim,
Is this happening with at known good lipo? I have seen this happen with worn out lipos. I have not had to re calibrate in that case though. It just required constant trimming as the lipo power gradually sagged. Normally I don't use more than 3-4 clicks of trim +/- throughout the whole lipo/flight. Unbalanced props and any extra vibrations from the arms that have not been tightened with an ET mod could contribute to what you Gents are seeing. Of course damaged or weak motors can cause those symptoms too. In that case the randomness can start when the motors heat up.

Thanks for the answer!
I have to trim immediatly after inserting a new lipo pack.
I checked the lipos. They are ok. Motors dont seem to heat up.
Maybe I have to change my props. I will also do the ET mod. Did not find some tape yet hehe.

Please let me know when you find a solution Jimbo23

Thanks!

Hi I,
Keep in mind that some minor 3-4 clicks of trimming will always be required as a lipo loses power over the flight time. Installing a new lipo after that will require you to re-trim. I always do 1 second hops and adjust trims as necessary when starting out a multicopter flight so it rises perfectly straight up with hover power. Then I adjust the trims from there through the flight as necessary as the lipo power depletes.
Cheers,
Jim

Hi jesolins,

thank you for the information. After hearing that it sounds that my Hubsan is doing the same.
I was irritated because I read from some people that once calibrated correctly it is not necessary to trim till you damage something.
But now I understand..

Thanks!

Thanks Jim
It turned out to be a duff battery exactly as you suggested

Impakt
If you are going the same learning curve as I am don't make the mistake of trying to trim it out in a confined space
I found with a bit of breathing space I could get it trimmed and then play around compared to bashing into furniture etc

Cheers Jim

Nice to hear that you solved your problem
Yeah, that's a good advice, experienced it too. Playing with it in a bigger room can be so relaxing and much more fun.

MassiveRC is out of bare motors, but I ordered some HJ997 legs:

http://www.massiverc.com/PrestaShop/...white-led.html

I'm going to harvest the motor out of it and also harvest the LED. That link is for a CW (red/blue wire) motor and white LED. Choices are CW or CCW and red/blue-blinking LED or white LED depending on which arm you buy. $5 isn't bad considering my LHS charges $10 for a SQ1 leg and that has no LED.

I also got some V202 props with built-in motor protectors ordered as well. They come in green, orange, and black.

And don't forget the rubber feet if you don't have any yet:

Mine arrived yesterday and I was VERY happily surprised at the performance. There does seem to be a slight lag between input and reaction with sharp maneuvers - is that normal?

It's something that can be adjusted for by flying ahead a bit but in small quarters it makes it interesting.

on normal rates, the sticks don't do so much around the middle, set the rates a bit higher, and you will notice they respond faster
