WL Toys 686k

Before Christmas there was some seriously ( serious ) bargains to be had .
So good in fact one could not do anything other than simply hand over the money and wait !
And wait I have . But at last the WL toys 686k is here .
It be a simple 1s brushed quad with a plug in Wifi camera ( I will most likely remove it ) .

The advertised protocol for this quad is Flysky V6x6 ( Not mine )
This one is Q2x2 / Q222 ( just in case anyone has had issue binding to their IRX4 multi protocol module ...

Speaking of the IRX4 , I bound my 686 to my Taranis Q x7 / IRX4+ .
In menu 6 ( OpenTx ) I set the channel order to ( Works for me )
Ch1 = Ail
Ch2 = Ele
Ch3 = Thr
Ch4 = Rud

So when you first bind , be careful because if your channel order is out you may need to peel the 686 from the ceiling .
Might want to remove the props or hold the 686 firmly in your hand ..

Flying the 686 :

This is one stable and responsive quad .. Fully noob friendly with the factory Tx ( yes I tried it ) .
With the Q x7 everything was sweet except the yaw/ruder . It was slow / lethargic ...
I expect I will have to jack the rates up to make it a little more lively / responsive .
But seriously , for the money I paid , this is crazy insane value ...
If you have a itch for the 686 and you see it for good money , it is worth while having ..

Yes , I do recommend the 686 if you have an itch for it ..
Its Noob friendly , solid , and responsive .
The pittance I paid for mine , geez ..
Just don't know how they could do it .

My previous WL quad was the 959 and I think the 686 is actually easier to fly , more stable and more responsive to control input ( Fact Tx )
I can't complain about my sample , actually performed better than expected .

Was sitting here , and realized ... Hmmm can I run the camera from the 959 in the 686 ( ? ) I will have to check that

Camera Update !
Apparently the camera from the 959 can plug into the 686 ....
I have just done the swap , and it looks to be plugged in correctly ..

I will have to play with a Aux switch and see if I cant get the camera to record ..
( Records to Micro SD card )

WL Toys V686K camera test (0 min 52 sec)

It works ...
Video is just a quick test as it is very windy out there right now ...

Taranis Q x7 , IRX4+ multi protocol module ... V686 with camera from V959

Now playing around ,
Ch6 turns lights on and off ( Turn them off for more flight time )
Ch7 takes stills pictures
Ch8 turns video recording on and off ...

For pictures and video , toggle your switch .
So with video , toggle the switch to activate , then toggle again to de activate ...
Wow , no jello ....
