That's a good deal, post it on the rc groups classifieds if no one here wants it.

Have you checked the CG vs the COL? It looks like the wings are going to be too far back, but I'm just eyeballing it here.


Hey! New SIgnature! 

 

I'm supposedly a person on the Internet, but you'll never know if I'm human or not ;)

I have not, but I can move the battery forward or back quite a ways depending on where the COL is.

 

edit: Fusion says the checker dot is where the COM is

does anyone have the RX5808 with Achilles? Kinda considering it if it's as good as a true D for half the price.

Still waiting for my frame to arrive.. Been a bit long for my taste

 

replaced a busted motor on my Tyrant the other day

and while in the drone workshop decided to dig in the draws and found parts to throw onto a 4" frame I had laying around.

Oh and know its only Slightly RC related but my mate and I have begun building a Bot to take part in Robot Wars UK and Battle Bots USA. So far its just design phase but having a 3D printer is fun, currently building to 1/4 scale.

Can you clip off some of that bent aluminum? I did that once and saved a motor.

Yeah I prob will if I need a motor badly, but I've learnt my lesson about running China stuff, Always keep spares!! so I keep two extra motors so just did a swap and will look at it later on..

 

also waiting on stock on DYS stuff so I can order my motors and ESC's

I'd still clip it off to see if you can get it spinning freely again

 

Also I did more digging on Achilles diversity stuff, the Eachine Pro58 module is $26, then $11 for the firmware and you get something that is supposed to be as good as a True D...

Should I jump on this; someone is selling Taranis, Teleportver V4s, a Kiss Build, Triumps, 5 4s batts, etc. All of that for $300, should I hop on it

What's on the quad? So far sounds like a good deal.

I am willing to sell Triumphs, RunCam swift RR, Taranis, and quad for Some dominator or hd style goggles. You will get all of that for some goggles.

Poke around rc groups classifieds, some good deals sometimes.

Just placed my largest battery order ever, 6 turnigy graphene packs. I got 4 4s 1500 65c packs, and 2 5s 2200 65c packs. Thanks to the discounts, those were cheaper than the 4s 1300 65c packs everyone knows and loves.

Tattu is having me review batteries that have a different label, everything is identical except the label

Well aren't you special xD

 

My R line 75c packs didn't hold up as well as I would have hoped. They just feel like a normal lipo now.

Pretty old news, i guess they're supposed to be a good lipo, but I like the Turnigy Graphenes more. My order for those finally shipped! About time, my Dinogy and R line packs are really really tired.

Looks like the clearview sucks.

Yeah, the module doesn't look great right now. I mean I've only seen Steele's and Bardwell's videos and I don't think either of them really tested the module in its intended environments or use case, but yeah not looking great. Perhaps it's all a testament to how good UBAD's recent developments are, but clearview has historically been miles ahead. My theory is they haven't nailed their algorithms for this new product and that it'll get better with software updates, but they shouldn't be shipping a half baked product. 

 

Clearview is designed to work really well in environments with lots of multipathing and lots of interference. It also does really well with breakup, the screen never rolls and it's more chunky than static or tearing like typical FPV situations. It's designed for racing, not long range, and none of the testing I've seen has really put it in the situation it's designed for and will be used in.
