I had this bookmarked

Here are my choices... frustrating...
I had this page bookmarked in my searches
http://www.wellshow.com/rf-connector...-fl-connector/

I seem to recall there was an Orange RX antenna on hobbyking which I thought I has added to a wishlist, it's not in any of my wishlists though

Unfortunately I don't have access to a Falcore at the moment to check measurements

https://hobbyking.com/en_us/orangerx...t-antenna.html

This page has the U.FL antenna
https://www.nextfpv.com.au/products/...ceiver-antenna

With a link to this page with the measurements of the Ipex connector
https://www.nextfpv.com.au/collectio...ipex-connector

So if Ipex4 is too small, then I'd say it's U.FL

CrashFlip/Turtle Mode


Has anyone got CrashFlip/Turtle mode working? I just replaced my ESCs with DSHOT ones and I'm now seeing that there's no support for DSHOT in the version of CleanFlight they used. Does anyone have updated custom firmware, or would you be interested in collaborating on some? I have the source code and I'm considering forking and updating CleanFlight or simply adding DSHOT support.

I finally picked one of these up so I've been reading a lot about it. I've been trying to source the prop guards but it seems everyone is sold out of them and they are gone for good. I want to use this to help my son fly so the prop guards would probably be a good idea.

Does anyone have them laying around they want to sell?

if you can't get any used ones...maybe try this site and see if they might have some...I've used this site for connex technical support questions before but i'm sure they may be able to help

Just a HeadsUp .. The prop guards caused my Falcore to rotate 180deg when going full speed in a straight line. (Eg. tareassing down the runway with others at the flight line and all of a sudden you cannot see where you are going..)

This was pretty dangerous as all of a sudden you are looking behind you while the quad is still moving forward.

I never had it do it just flying slow like a newbie would be doing.
But the auto flight of this thing make full speed flying very tempting.
I never saw this problem after removing the guards.

As a side note. This problem was confirmed with another pilot and reported to Connex and of course ignored. lol

They are a blast to fly. Enjoy..

I'm not sure if anybody answered you already and your post is quite old. I had this happen to my Falcore several times. I had to reseat the connector from the ground sensing unit to fix it. After a number of times that connector worked it's way out I simply put a dab of hot glue to keep it from coming out.

I did hook it up to cleanflight and looks like the sonar has stopped working. I re-flashed the FC but still the same.

I broke off the front arm mounting tabs on the frame. Looks like replacement parts are impossible to find now. Has anybody tried transplanting the electronics to a third party frame?

And if I were to 3D print the part, what is the preferred material and method? I am a noob when it comes to 3D printing, there are so many choices offered by those 3D printing services.
