I really like the 150 (3") size = the are small enough to fly in your yard, batteries (850 4 cell) cheaper & charge in 1/2 the time, & now with the F3 flight controllers are very easy to control in FPV.
For winter time= Tiny Whoop

The FCC warning is when your TX is more than 400? mw transmitting power. So anything under your legal - no ham license req.

Well I don't know why i cant get mine to let me arm on a switch.
That 2nd video the F4 spedix with rush looks so much more clear... and I thought the spedix was 600mw? maybe not
do you have a sugesstion for smaller quad in that range? i see lots of eachines but not sure there worth it.. its just hard for me to spend $200 on something smaller

There are some YouTube vids for setting up 6-ch Txs for quads, but I didn't notice any specifically for the DX6. However, the concept is the same for other Txs (especially within the Spektrum brand), so you can get the principle from them. I'm only using 6 channels to do those things on my DX8. As milgil stated, AUX1 (ch 5) is commonly used for arming.

I believe the VTx on the 250 Pro and (my) Black Knight are the same, which is switchable between 25 & 200 mW. And I'm pretty sure the FCC limit is 25 mW. Anything greater than that technically requires a Ham Radio "Technician" license.

As for smaller quads. Here are a couple I'm familiar with that may fit the bill, depending on just what you want from it. If you are still trying to get used to FPV, this is a really cheap BNF kit at only $43. The build is relatively simple, as you only need to solder the motor and battery wires to the board. It's not very powerful, but moreso than an Inductrix. And it has Cleanflight installed on it. For someone new or struggling with FPV, I think it's a good option.

For something more powerful (and brushless), this one looks impressive. It was popular at a show I attended this summer, and I saw some guys flying it around. At $145, it is also BNF, and comes in a nice carrying case with (2) 2S batteries. It reportedly will fly unmodified on 3S too, making it a quad that can grow with you. I'm seriously considering one for myself!

Good find Knight Owl, I want me one of those spc makers, so small, yet well equipped (for a BNF) - could fly in a much smaller area. I think my second quad is going to be 210 or smaller. There are some crazy small quads around now.

If I can afford it, I'll be getting a QQ190 from TBS/Quad Questions, it's a fine piece of kit. For some reason I prefer it to the Vendetta II.

Spedix S250 Pro not working with Cleanflight


I have a new Spedix S250 Pro that has me stumped. It came with a bad satellite and would not bind. I replaced that with one on hand and it binds to my DX6E.

When I connect it to Cleanflight via Chrome, I do not see all the tabs that show up on Youtube videos about how to configure the quad.

I do connect on port 3 @ 115kbps but I then disconnect in about 10 seconds.

I'm about ready to send it back. I would like it to work but have never had so much trouble with any RC stuff.

You see the quad? on the screen thats the first thing you see, what version of cleanfliht did you install? im running 1.2.4 or something like that the newer 2.0 wouldn't work with my quad cause it didn't have the newest firmware in the quad that might be your issue. there is a youtube video that shows how to download and install the older version.
Here is the video.

Thanks for your post. My issue was "operator error"and the quad is now ready to go. Great Kudos to the guys @ https://www.gothelirc.com/. They talked me off the ledge. Seems that some of the videos on Youtube show some incorrect servo settings and that was my problem along with being new at quads. Do appreciate your help, though.

Hey Pigbilly, I meant to ask, why two dumps posted - are they the same?
