Been waiting a good few days for some bits and bobs. Three separate deliveries, and no sign of them for ages.

Today, all three arrived at once, and best of all, the 3D gimbal from HK international, which was one of them, did not attract any VAT. I think this is the first time when one has just got through by its own devices, without me declaring a lower value, or fiddling the invoice accidentally by ordering it with points, and where I've just been missed.. Lack of VAT, and the current strength of the pound, has made this a very cost effective buy.

So at the left we have a carbon DSMX satellite. In the middle we have an infa red thermometer. At the right we have an optical heli tach. Of course at the back we have the 3D gimbal.

I went for the carbon sat so I can mount the Rx on the outside of the body, and have the antenna mounted in a vertical tube going straight up from the quad, for extra diversity.

I got the 3D gimbal to hopefully elliminate the wobble on yaw, and I got the other two little gizmos just because I've always wanted them, and they were well priced and available in the UK warehouse.



Cheers

Just broke my 600, so of course I'll have to fix it directly.

I was wanting to use it to demonstrate some specific MicroBeast behaviour, but discovered that it wasn't bound. It wasn't bound because when I updated my DX18 firmware recently it said I would lose all models, as it was a major upgrade, so I copied them all to the SD card. When you import them back they are no longer bound, so each time I want to operate a model for the first time in a while I have to bind it first.

Anyway, I couldn't get a bind plug in, so I had to unmount the receiver mounting plate, and try to twist the receiver around. Doing so I sheared off one of the short antennas against the sharp edge of the frame side.

I don't think I'll have any trouble soldering another antenna on, but it is going to have to be a complete strip down to get the Rx out. Grrrr.

Oh well, best set to it.

Cheers

Sutty

and, finished. Two hour non-stop repair, just because I couldn't get my bind plug in earlier.

Cheers

Well Sutty, sounds like your letter to Royal Mail did some good Some nice gadgets there, been wanting an IR thermometer myself

As for me I am like you, I just been waiting for a nice calm day to test things, but has been blowing a gale when I have the spare time So, I just thrown myself back into work since the holiday. Really starting to annoy me now that I don't have my own transport, so I'm cracking on to see how quickly I can raise funds for a new set of wheels now

Looks like we are due a break on Tuesday. I'll probably be in work, but fingers crossed I'll try and work in an early dart.

Cheers Chad, y'know today isn't looking too bad if the wind drops later. I've managed to injure my left hand at work yesterday, and it's still throbbing like mad. Was hammering some pipeclips in and managed to miss a few times so I'll have to take some painkillers and see how it feels later

If I remember, the next shipment is the 9th. Getting close now.

As far as the motors go, I need more testing.
The Penguin, less power than stock 2815 motor, but doable. Will have to wait and see how it handles with time and wind.

The Ranger, just got to love Tmotor!
Definitely a hell of a lot more power, almost 2300g. of thrust vs. 1700g., and looks like I gain at least 1 minute of time on a single battery. Running dual, I should expect around 1/2 hour.
