Get this https://hobbyking.com/en_us/usb-prog...html?wrh_pdp=3 I know that it doesn't say that it works with the 60A Platinum V4, but it does using the PC software. Not as convenient as a plug-in box, but a lot cheaper...

two hover and gentle flying tests today. all good.

however the Gens Ace batteries are I think total rubbish. I can only get 1000 mah back into these on recharge, down to 3.75 volts in 5 minutes and at 4.2v thats teh max I can see going into them. one cell in each is also at least 10% off and I have to post balance charging them, partially run them down on a balancer and then recharge to try and get the even.

I smell a knock off BS china rat here......... going for an aliexpress refund..........

Mike - remind me what batteries you're using again please.

what flying time you seeing ?? Initially I had two HRB 1800 3S back to back, tight fit and was seeing around 6 1/2 minutes which seemed great.

damn, did it again, actually three times, low level hover at the park and about 50m out, the esc cuts off, thats telling me the Lemon diversity Say unit is loosing signal and the fail safe onto esc is kicking in right ?? Pick it up, walk back, 4 plus volts on the battery. spools straight up , state chover 10m away until the battery is done. repeat three times, close in good, 40 - 50 m loses power.

time to fit up a full size diversity receiver unit........ luckily I have a couple in the spares, ideally would like a sat then hanging off that as well.

no damage this time but could have been a disaster if it was up high at the time.......

Have you got any other batteries that you can try? And another Sat? At least you could eliminate them from your list then

I'm going to fit a full size diversity receiver, and a sat into that. I don't have any other diversity aerial sats but two spare dsmx units. I tried three batteries, I piggy backed two 1800 3S first up, thats what i originally flew it on. I'm figuring the sat has a problem. Flew my 450's and smaller stuff all over the park with the same radio no problems.

was wondering if the motor is drawing excessive current but nothing is hot, just warm.

That was flying nicely right up until it wasn't . I have a 300CFX and completely agree about the landing gear - it's awful and VERY expensive

What flybarless system do you have on it? Is there anything in the logs that shows signal drop?
