Thread: TBS DISCOVERY - New quadrocopter frame

  1. #1781
    1) the M2.5 screws are now included in every DISCO kit.
    2) yeah, the bundle and installation is not possible at this point. order them separately, and then send me an e-mail I'll refund the amount you'd save wit the bundle.
    3) haven't tried. I heard the RCTimer SimonK's are not too good, though
    4) all DCDC devices will noise to some degree into your UHF radio receiver. Quads are extremely packed. If you plan to fly long range (3miles+) your R/C link will be better off with the tin shield.

    1) Does the "DJI Flamewheel arms package" include screws? Or do I have to find them from somewhere else?
    2) When I last bought TBS 69 + Core there was a discount. Now, I don't see how to get it if I choose "TBS core installed" option.
    3) I want to go with RCTimer 30Amp flashed ESC + RCTimer 2830-14 750kV. But I read that some people are having compatibility (arming) problems with RCTimer ESCs and NAZA. Have you guys ever tried this combo? (a question not necessarily for only Trappy)
    4) Is the RF Tin Shield really required? Is there anyone who flies without one? I though the Core was pretty noise free!

    Thanks,

    3DJIM and others who use DJI 920kV motors:

    What is it that you don't like about these stock motors? On paper, they should give more than enough punch especially on a 4S setup. I'm trying to finalize my motor + ESC choices, after Trappy's response RCTimer ESCs are out of question. I am now thinking between two options:

    - either DJI 30amp Opto ESC + RCTimer 2830-14 750kV with 4S battery and 9x5 Graupner e-props
    - or DJI 30amp Opto ESC + DJI 920kV with 3S battery and 10x5 Graupner e-props
    - or a better suggestion for 4S setup.

    I used the RCtimer SimonK ESCs with the Naza. They are noticeably better than the DJI ESCs. I would suggest calibrating esc throttle without the Naza first.

    Hi Wise Man,

    Are you using this ESC? http://www.rctimer.com/index.php?gOo...79&productname=
    I don't see any unflashed ESC suitable for multicopter on their website!

    Hi Jim: I hope you got them at a discounted price (http://www.hobbypartz.com/02p-motor-...212-kv980.html)
    So, are you gonna use them with 3S battery? They don't seem to be rated for 4S, and rated only up to 165W.

    How do you do that exactly?
