Some questions about the FC.
  • Is there a way to connect a Spektrum Sat to the FC?
    The 3 ports on the back of the board are sbus, ppm and led.
    But maybe there are some direct solder joints on the board?
  • Does the FC output telemetry data so that i can use a minimosd?
  • Does the FC support Vbat?

thanks

I think the Tarot 130 and its siblings suffer from very bad reliability issues.

I started flying my Tarot 130 a few days ago and on the second day of testing, one of the wires on the USB cable came loose. I'm very careful and gentle with my RC stuff so this could not have been caused by me being too rough on the dongle.

Took me several hours to figure out how to fix it. I found a 4-pin connector at home and decided to replace the damaged end of the dongle with it and the problem was solved. Prior to this, I had been doing some hover tests with it indoors.

On the third day, I decided to bring it out for a test flight at a children's playground. On one occasion, I lost control of it (pilot error) when it was about 3 feet above ground and facing a gust of wind, causing it to drop onto a concrete surface. It was basically hovering just before the crash so it was a bit like a free fall rather than a high speed/high impact crash.

This small drop actually caused some damage to one of the micro ESCs. When attempting to power it up again, I saw smoke coming out from the ESC so I quickly disconnected the battery but it was too late. The damage was already done.

This is quite frustrating since I've hardly spent enough time flying it to actually enjoy it. I'm going to place an order for a replacement ESC today.

I guess when things are so tiny and small, they become less reliable. Interestingly, i've crashed plenty of toy-grade micro quadcopters such as the Hubsan X4 and they've been a lot more reliable.

I received my Tarot 130 , but unfortunately one of the motors is failed out of the box. Figured it out in cleanflight. It started crunchy and then failed full stop. Does anybody have experience with Foxtechs returns ? I'm just looking for a straight replacement and not a refund. I've left a message with them and hopefully I get an RMA soon. This thing is pretty sweet and I want to fly it!

I had almost exactly the same problem and Margaret at FoxTech did all the best for me. I sent an email to [email protected] . She sent a new ESC as it burned at my second plugin. The only problem I had is that FoxTech is not able to see any video from YouTube as the channel is forbidden in China. Then I had to upload a short video and send pictures to be evaluated. Because, before it burned, the ESC/Motor had bad behaviour and they needed to have video of the problem. Once the ESC burned, it was less complicated and a picture of the burned ESC was enough
