    I have an S800 as well, and it's indeed a good starter/portable wing. However it's not good at all as a stable camera platform.
  2. I've had great results with my Crash Test Hobby...

    I've had great results with my Crash Test Hobby Gladiator XL. It's a 60" wing that costs about $100 US. Very stable due to the deep chord and wingspan and easy to launch, with very gentle and...
  3. Tale of Fail. Launching (not!) a Skywalker at high altitude.

    Preparing for a trip to northern New Mexico a month or two ago, I got the idea to build a plane that would break down for airline travel and allow me to fly from my destination to the top of a...

    My ZMR had some weird twitching behavior. In my case the problem was the rx antenna was too close to the power wires. Moving them a few centimeters farther away cured it.

    One more thing.. If you haven't gotten your parts yet, I would look into the ZMR250 v2 that FPVModel.com sells. It's a little more expensive, but you get a really nice PDB, the carbon fiber quality...

    I'll take a couple of these... I had some 2200mah 30c 3s batteries left over from flying wing builds. They're about as heavy as the 1800mah 4s 45-70c. Both are probably a little on the heavy side,...

    Last night I ordered some caps. Hopefully I can get my $15 ESC working again with a $0.25 capacitor replacement.

    OK, figured it out. First, check out the video of how the motor was behaving:

    Upon closer inspection I saw that one of the leads to the 220uf...

    Thanks Jon,

    The original video has sound, but it doesn't give away much. Fortunately I have a spare motor and a spare ESC. The easiest process will be to swap motors first so that's what I'm...

    Blackbox video: Bad motor or bad ESC?

    A while back I wrote about how my mini quad was squirming around under full throttle. The other day I went flying and suddenly things got a whole lot worse. I have just installed Blackbox, so here's...

    I've got a video reception problem with my Headplay HD goggles that I haven't been able to diagnose. There's a possibility it could be the vtx instead but I haven't figured out a good way eliminate...

    I figured it out! The battery leads are too close to the UHF rx antenna. I have the antenna sticking out the back of the quad and the battery leads are practically wrapped around it. Moving them out...

    No solution for my issues yet. Yours sounds like the PID values may be too high at high throttle settings, if it's a rapid oscillation. Have you added some TPA to help dampen those out?
  14. ZMR250/Naze32/Cleanflight jerky, pulsing motors

    My ZMR has been doing some weird stuff lately. I'll have a good flight or two, then it'll start with this weird, pulsing and twitching. Sometimes it's relatively mild. Other times it'll get worse and...

    Have I borked my RCMC 15a ESCs?

    This weekend I had the brilliant insight to try and fix something that wasn't broken. Now only one of the motors on my ZMR250 is spinning up.

    In a nutshell, I installed Boris B's 1.10 beta...

    At least several minutes passed between the time I first started it up successfully and the next time when it blew. I'm quite convinced now that at least on the second incident I didn't do anything...

    Great breakdown, Ajax! I learned a few new things. I'm guessing it was the inrush current that toasted it. Although I had connected the vtx differently (1st time to the 12v BEC (probably stupid) and...

    All really good suggestions guys. Thank you! The vtx is a Hawkeye 600mw, to answer Immersion's question. I disassembled the quad and unsoldered the blown component. That was easy... there wasn't much...
  19. Help.. I've torched two PDBs in a week! Please help me figure out what I did wrong.

    I've just put together my first mini-quad and have had two of these RMRC power distribution boards go up in smoke... I haven't even gotten to fly yet except for a quick maiden. :confused: I...

    Thanks Bruno, I think I've got it sorted. The rx was outputting values down to 999. I reduced the percentage on each channel of the Turnigy 9XR down to about 93%. This brought the lowest value...
  21. Naze32 Acro first-timer: Something doesn't seem right...

    Not new to RC or FPV, but this is my first go-round with the Naze32 and Cleanflight. I'm building a ZMR250 quad and will be using a Hawkeye 6ch rx flashed with a recent OpenLRS and set up for PPM. In...

    Maybe I should've ordered mine in ultraviolet. :cool:

    Yep, it was kind of a drag. And kinda weird. Really don't know what happened or how. How would the windings just start coming apart? Anyway, I got the SK3 installed and it seems much smoother, if a...
