Could also be they skip spare parts, as Furibee is releasing one new model after another.

I did see (as you can allso see) diagonal lines in the FPV feed).. Haven't had time to read this topic yet.. (will do after posting).. are thos diagonal lines common in this quad?
Or could it be because I ran non-pagoda antenna on the receing end?
Haven't checked, but I think mine uses 4mm carbon. Will get back to that

Fixed seems a strong word for it. It's much better, but compared to the really clean video on quads like Kopis1, BFight 210 and DarkMax 220, it's still rather noisy.

Agreed.. It's not completely gone indeed.. At least for me though it changed the quad from hardly flyable into very flyable.
If I compare it to a self-build quad though, it's not as good yet..

To all who are plagued by the dreaded interference lines of death. The issue has been solved with the help of some aluminum foil! Courtesy, Fyre SG. Hip-Hip Hooray!

To Okletmegodown;

I ordered mine on October 2nd, with a week "expected" delivery time, i'm now also been told between the 25th - 27th... Wouldn't have a problem with the long delivery times just would like to know from the start/ don't like being lied to...

Also just ordered the FuriBee GT 220MM Fire Dancer (birthday present), lets see how long it take for that one to ship...

Furibee X215 Roll of death!


Okay, so its been a while I have had to chance to go back to this, but I still am having the issue. Here's a DVR of what I am experiencing. I have opened a case with gearbest, but don't know when that will be resolved. Any insight into why this could be happening is appreciated!

That actually looks a bit like a 'flip of death'.. Have you tried increasing the min-throttle percentage?

Finally got a chance to go out and at least hover the X215 to see if it even flies. That little thing has really good power. However, mine has a bad increasing drift in stabilized mode. Anyone have any ideas what could be causing it? i have tried re calibrating the accelerometer and doesn't seem to help. I have flashed the latest 3.2.1 BF.

The first thing I would check is if the wires that run between the FC & VTX aren't rubbingn against the elevated part of the FX (that part that is stuck on with some foam)

Agreed.

Keiji Takeda solved this on Mar 1, 2017:
ESC desync - death roll XM30A+BLHeli [solved]

Sample video of ESC desync
The problem was solved by following.

1 Change motor direction from reverse to normal and switch 2 wires for the motor.
2 Increase min throttle on the FC.
3 Lower startup power of ESC by BLHeli Suite.

Try it.

I've given some suggestions for this in the other topic where you posted the same question. Please check, there are a few possible causes, some can be fixed, some not.

Yup... re-mounted the sensor board with lesser thickness foam, on the quad I received, the sensor board was touching the VTX board on top.

Thanks! I will try this out. Honestly, it shouldn't be this much of work for a BNF quad. I do like the frame and the camera though, lots of tumbles due to this issue and they are still okay!

50 packs in and no flips/wobbles/brown-outs/failsafes/de-syncs. Done Fyre's foil fold mod and the signal is clean and solid. Have to force myself to pick up any of my other quads as this is by far the nicest flying BNF quad I have. 5S 75C 1350mAh Dinogy Mega Graphene 2.0 batteries arrived today and I am so tempted to try them in this rather than waiting until my DarkMax arrives. My whole being is saying try it try it but for just this once I shall wait and see what others discover before frying my motors !! So it is down to you to test 5S and report back. Happy flying

Does anyone know if the Pagoda antenna that comes with the X215 is RHCP or LHCP?
