    Watching your video, it looks like the gimbal is out of balance, and at the lower power setting (with motor disarmed) the gimbal motors are stalling when you shake it aggressively. In any gimbal it's...

    What you are seeing is most likely not an issue of frame rate. Older analog servos typically wouldn't respond to PWM inputs (frame rates) quicker than about 50Hz, but most modern digital servos can...

    Thanks for the advice. I might try that. At the moment I have the huge rabbit ear winglets on it, which may be too much.

    Cool, I check their website a few times a day hoping for news. Finally got my 3S Caipi flying, and love it. Still have to work out a few bugs with the Evo F3 setup, but Acro mode is pretty smooth. In...

    Probably a question for ET, but my advice for aircraft where you expect very large current draws to servos would be to only run signal and ground from the autopilot to the servos, and ground and...

    With a stretched, super-light Disco frame with T-Motor 3510-13s (same guts as a U3) and 15" T-Motor props I can get 25 minutes on a 3S 6000 pack. Video in FFF is junk though.

    I remember a YouTube video a while back that showed qualitative results to the contrary, and I think I recall something in the manual as well. The "bunny ears" winglets are larger and reach back...

    Something like an F3 board can do a great job of filtering out pitch and roll disturbances from the wind,but won't help with yaw much.

    Keep in mind that some yaw oscillations are pretty standard with flying wings, both in turbulent air and during aggressive roll maneuvers. There will be less if you use larger winglets, in...

    If you still have your old hardware for the Caipi, and are just looking for the wing - they are still available:

    I thought about end-point adjustments, but I used Hitec digital servos and ended up just reprogramming the servos for less throw. I'm using an SPR Evo F3 flight controller with BetaFlight, and it was...

    I could probably post the STL and DXF files if people wanted them. I should say, it's not a trivial part to print, or rather it takes a pretty good printer with multi-head/multi-material capability,...

    Cool build. This is what I ended up doing for the motor mount. The printed part is made of PolyCarbonate, and is pretty strong. It's designed to move the Scorpion motor forward enough so that the...

    Just getting ready to build a 3S Caipi. I've got the Scorpion motor. Planning on a Castle Creations Talon 35 ESC and ThunderPower 3S 4000 ProLite packs. I have an older TBS 59 camera I was thinking...

    [QUOTE=HFMan;818873]I thought in RTH scenarios, vector will always maintain at least cruise throttle. If so, and you have set cruise throttle well above stall speed, it is virtually impossible to...

    I haven't used the airspeed sensor on Vector, but I have been using similar sensors built into or with other autopilots for a decade or so, and every one of those systems needs to perform a...

    Sorry to see people with problems with the Lux. I have them in an Alien 5" and Alien 6", and absolutely love them. The wiring is so clean, and (finally) with newer Clean/Beta-flight, ESC pass-thru...

    Actually, I meant "Colibri." I think it's the target used in the TBS power cube. I think it was speced for Lux many months ago, but maybe not anymore. Kombini is a Furious product. Haven't tried one...

    Sorry - think I was confused with an earlier post using a Spektrum diversity RX. I have not used the XR4.

    Are you using the Colibri Race target? In the newer CF and BF there is a Lux Race target...

    I've used both Spektrum and Lemon Sat Rxs on the Lux, and both have been fine. I'm curious about the diversity Rx. The Lemon Diversity Rx works fine, but acts like a regular Sat Rx. Do you know if...

    And solder bridges are correct? Have you tried switching to different, maybe older firmware to make sure it's not a firmware issue?

    Not sure I'm reading this right. Are you saying that you have assigned serial RX to both UART 1 and 2 at the same time? I think you want ONLY UART 1 set to serial RX.
  23. I had a similar problem I think. I tried using...

    I had a similar problem I think. I tried using UART3 for the SRX, and it immediately popped to DFU whenever i moved a stick. On another thread i found a post indicating that I had to use UART1 for...

    Ryan - Thanks for the feedback. I think the only failsafe I have enabled is motors-off if RC is out for more than a second. This has been tested, and it works (turns out 2.4GHz doesn't like to pass...

    I have a problem I'm wondering if anyone can help me with.

    I have a Lux in an Alien 6 with 30A RMRC ESCs and Cobra 2206-2100s running on 4S. It flies great - huge power and solid as a rock, but...
