With balanced props .... it's more smoother

Wingsland scarlet minivet raw footage demo flight with balanced props (Courtesy Banggood) (3 min 1 sec)



EDIT: I reflashed the former F/W associated with my Hardware version and no more problem with my minivet

Anyone have problems with the battery and charger? I flew mine once. The next day i went to charge, and it's giving me the error flashes. Will not charge at all. Not sure if its the battery or the charger. I just sent an email to banggood to see what they can do.

I have charged it for more than 10 times and my charger and battery work fine. How much charge was left in the battery before you charge it the next time? How long did you wait before you charge it the next time? The battery shouldn't be left fully charged or completely discharged for extended periods. I always keep it at "2 or 3 LEDs" full when unused.

My gimbal can move and down. I panicked earlier so I mistakenly left the switch at Settings, and that doesn't move the gimbal.

The only problem now is calibration. It doesn't work. The staff sent me a calibration link and towards the end it shows their gimbal software having 2 additional tabs: Parameters and Pid&Motors. At Pid&Motors, I can manually define the position of the gimbal. I need that software. They haven't sent that to me.

I have the correct FC firmware and things seem to work. After fixing the gimbal then I'll do a test flight.

Yes. That should be fixed by calibration or motor settings. I need the new version of the gimbal software.

I only charged it once. Flew it until it was at 3 led's. Flew it yesterday. Started at 3 led's, and seemed as though the battery died within a short time and auto landed. Tried charging the battery later in the night, but thats when I got the flashing error lights, then charger stops.

In the mean time, I rigged the Scarlet to accept regular Lipos, so i dont have to wait or worry about the proprietary battery from Wingsland. Banggood doesnt accept fast shipping for batteries, and it looks like they dont have the spare chargers in yet. I'll be using a couple 3000mah batteries I have on hand, but will go to Hobbyking to see what bigger batteries I can use.
