Had the canopy fly off too when I had a rather rough landing at one point

That’s some really nice footage. Looks like a very calm day.

I have a Ridian Mini that was surprisingly good at proximity flying in fpv so I’m going to give that a shot with this one too.

Has anyone successfully bound their A800 to a Devo, Jumper, or other multi-protocol transmitter? I have the A600 and A430 that both fly beautifully with my Devo10, but I'm not going to bother with the A800 if I can't bind it to my Devo.

Calcifer, I love my A430. If you were in the States I'd do you a favor and buy yours off of you

I have bound it to my Jumper T12 and will post a video on that on my YouTube channel in a few days.

This is some raw DVR footage from my FPV camera. It was my first flight with the plane out of the box so I flew a bit conservatively. I had it at around 80% throttle and I would say if you don't glide and just crank around in it you'll get about 8 minutes flight time with the stock battery. Very easy to fly I put this in rate 2 and 3D mode right away.

So far I'd say this a total steal for a RTF 4-channel in the $55-70 range and in my searches I've never seen a 4-chan come in this low. Even has gyro.

With the current deal that's on it, a little over 50 euro incl. shipping, and seeing how it performs quite a bit better than the Sky King, and offers 4 channel control, I just had to get one.

This might be a rather strange question, but for those who have the A800 paired with a programmable tx, can you mix the built in rudder and elevator servos to control a v-tail/flying wing with the stabilization being correct? I'm assuming programming the servos is rather straight forward, however having the stabilization work accordingly may not. I'd love to be able to use the A800 module to in scratch built/3D printed planes like the f949/f959 modules.

No, just a simple (and cheap) brushed motor.

Always good practice to run those in at low throttle for one battery charge.

Its what they call a iron core brushed motor. It’s alot bigger than a typical brushed quad motor.

I found a beginner quad on amazon that uses a 2300mah 2S battery and was wondering how it could lug that pack around with just brushed motors. I checked into it and it uses iron core motors as well.

So it’s not as good as brushless but most likely pushes more torque than the brushed motors in the F949 and UMX Trojan micro.

This package beats the pants off the F949 and all the assorted cheapie differential thrust planes. As Drone Camps showed this is a really good proximity flier too.
