I am an official owner. Just wish I bought my batteries sooner. Batteries get here on Saturday - in 2 days so I have just been flicking buttons like an idiot. My wife is just laughing at me.

I know the feeling... The lucky part is that I recently moved from Brazil to Portugal and my wife is not here yet to laugh at me rolling the dead scroll wheel when it arrived.

Got mine today, great so far, feels great in the hand, works well with my Jumper R8 including Pixhawk telemetry with Yaapu.

having a charging issue where it stops at 7.5v, but we'll see how it goes. I've got the official battery as well, but will double check with some 18650's.

I am having a small "issue". After carefully calibrating the analog controls they all work very good but for one little detail: The right gimbals have a small deviation of the roll axis when at the low left corner.

I'll open later today to check if there is any wire or mechanical reason for this but for now is there anyone else with the same behavior?

It is a no issue in practice but if is solvable is nice to have it registered here.

maybe it can be resolved enabling ADC but...for example, who flies with betaflight 4.2, it'll not the best thing to do 'cause it "level" the sticks resolution.

Not that I am aware off. But it seems to be a standard lithium battery - just swap for a new one and the issue should go.
