Replacement arms


Are you like me and crash a lot? Have you broken an arm off of your Bugs 3? Do you own a 3d printer? If you answered yes to all 3 of these questions check out these arms I made and posted to Thingiverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2643737

Very nice, I'd be interested to see how it holds up!

I also see you've updated the battery tray - it looks a lot more robust than the previous version. Might have to try printing it when my printer arrives!

I'm about to make a 65mph+ bugs, this might be what I need to keep it together for more than a couple of runs!

this is a great idea!

Is it possible to use the original long landing gear with your custom arms?

Does anyone know if there's a FPV app for Android that lets you to rotate the image? I have installed my FPV cam upside down but now, obviously, I need to rotate the image.

Turn auto-rotate in the phone off and flip the screen over!

Obviously I have already tried to do what you suggested but the app FPViewer still rotates the image when I rotate the phone.
I tried another app, FPVDroid, which is working correctly but I can't use it in full screen mode. So I am still looking for a solution...

I have brought on board two more flyers of the Bugs 3 quad. Both of them are newbies and are still learning the curve, but neither is on this board as of now. I will probably have to buy a few more Bug 3 quads as time progresses. Are there any more coupon's for Gearbest for the Bugs 3 that you guys know of?

That's pretty sharp of you, printing your own parts. I don't break arms, just have flyaways of the complete Bugs 3. Now I know that if you are suffering a flyaway, kill power to the transmitter & the quad will fall out of the sky in a few seconds. Make sure you are over a grassy field. not trees or a concrete parking lot.

Hey all, I'm trying to make a few plans while I'm away from the Bugs.

Would someone be willing to measure the square cutout in the middle of the white transmitter (the one which has 'Bugs' printed on it) and give me the exact dimensions?

Thornhill , I get 31mm x 44mm measuring the size of the insert. I installed a volt meter and the insert just pushes in, easy to remove.....!!!

Perfect, thanks!

Yeah I thought it must push out. I'm hoping to install something there myself.
The volt meter is for a lipo?
