Happenings - 18 Nov 2020

Something came in the post !
A XK A430 ...

It was on special , it was in the oz warehouse , so saved on Post+GST and it was on special .
And I wanted one for better or worse ( Hmmm , been getting my fair share of worse lately ) .
Anyways ..

A) Instruction manual bites hard
B) See the bind button in the pictures
C) CG is supposedly 30mm - this means the included battery needs to be as far forward as possible .
D) Weight - Mine comes in at 88grams with the included battery
E) I bound mine S-FHSS to my Taranis ( Multi Module )

Bind process : Turn on the plane and push the button ( Max ) . The red light will go off .
Turn on your Tx ,
I had to frequency fine tune , after range testing I ended up with +38 on the fine tune .
If your multi module is not close enough , there is no bind ..
So just freq fine tune till you get a green light . Then range check and tune .
You dont need to bind mode the Tx . You just need to be on the money with the freq tune .
Havent flown it .
Wind has picked up - was nice this morning when I took the beaver out .
But another brutal hay fever day . ( Peak of the season ) Even with meds my eyes are burning !
So the next plane to be maiden - XK A430
