Joysway Invader ( OMG ) Part 2


I don't know what to say = I'm just not good enough to fly it !
All I did was crash the Invader till I broke it !

Whats the problem ?
I can't play with the supplied remote .
Left stick is Elevator , right stick is throttle and aileron .
I simply can't do it .

It goes against every fibre of my Mode 2 brain .

Anyhow , when I got to my CG test spot , the wind started to pick up .
This kind of makes CG testing a little challenging with a new model .
Also the configuration of the Tx really messed with me ..
Every single time that something happened that required REFLEXES to correct the sticky situation = I just made it worse .
I lost count of the number of times I smacked terra firma with the Invader .

Currently the Invader is resting and being glued back together .
Will I try again = HELL NO !

I will remove the flight board and put it away with the Tx for another project where no mixing is required .
Just does not work for me in this wing - Might be ok in a glider .

I have already ordered a brushed ESC , so will pop in a micro 4ch Rx and just bind to my Taranix Q x7 .

So is there a gripe !
YES = The supplied battery is garbage ..
I tried to charge it and the voltage jumped all over the place .
I tried to discharge it and the voltage dropped immediately and the charger stopped .
Cant charge the battery , cant discharge it . = Junk ..

Yes = I hate the Tx configuration .. Just makes me feel icky all over .

A NOOB who has never flown RC or owned a Mode 2 or 1 Tx might be ok with it ..
Unfortunately I have over 10 years of Mode 2 experience now ............ and it's kind of ingrained into me now . ( So why mess with it ? )
So yeah , disappointing .

I did open up the Tx to see if it would be possible to hotwire the Tx and swap functions .. Aileron from right stick to left stick .
Unfortunately the toy gimbals use trace for connections , so while it would be possible to do .
At this time I would just rather throw in a brushed ESC and a new Rx and try again with a much better transmitter .
So thats it ...
Sorry , no video !
Though this morning when I took the R4 Depron DLG to the park I did have the camera
Video soon I hope ...

Part 3 - Darth Invader
