Well if it were any other chore that would be precisely what was going on.

However, when it comes to the grass, it's my domain, and it is I that becomes frustrated, and possibly even slightly stressed, when I can't resotre it to nicely mown lines, for whatever reason.

Cheers

Sutty

Wow!

First off, I'm back to work now,,, and it sucks just as bad as I remember it. Who the hell came up with this idea of working for a living? Probably the first rich bastard became greedy and figured out how to screw everybody.

Ranger news. None yet. Waiting for Jim to get back to me. I could go fly her, but will wait until I get the new file.
Everything now works, even tested return to land, though I took back manual control before landing.
The only issue I have left with her is in aided mode. She waddles on ailreon, kind of like ol' Sutt when he gets a pint or two in him! :roll Kind of annoying when flying fpv.
Ok, truth is I have another problem, not acft related but grounds me none the less.
After a Windows update, my cpu will not stay on longer than a few minutes!!!

The Penguin.
My only test with the new Cobra motor was mixed success. She flys, but thrust is marginal.
This prompted me to purchase another motor that I just put on, a Tiger Motor, AT-3520/6 730kv. This gives me about 700grams more thrust, enough to combat wind easily.
Time will need to be computed under actual flight conditions, but I still expect about 45 minutes of flight using a 12 inch prop vs a 9 inch.
I had an issue last flight. Happened once before, thought it was because I did not secure the battery and it shifted, but after this last issue I'm now leaning to my Guardian stabilizer locking out!
Would love to hook up to it and see if there is a firmware upgrade, but my damn cpu is dead!
None the less, rhumor has it that my that my Vector will arrive in a couple weeks, finally.
As this thing is now capable for some extreme long range flights now, it's time to have rth capability. After all, after half an hour who wants to fly home when you can just flip a switch, grab a beer and just kick back in my new portable Barcolounger and enjoy the view back!

I'll take her back out again before that, probably tomorrow, for some mid range fun.
The questionable lock out, I think can be prevented by letting her boot up, unplug and boot up again.
Worth a try.

Sounds reasonable to me. Let us know how it goes. As for the ETV WOOOO HOOOO! The wait has been an eternity this is going to be a long 2 weeks.

That's a fact, Jack!
Truth is, everything I have found says this thing flys fine right out of the box and I know from personal observation that it flys phenominal after tuning.

Depending on what I find when I strip down the Hexa, I may well be looking at replacing the WKM with a second one of these.

People I know and personally trust who do extreme long range, keep telling me that after trying everything out there they keep comming back to EagleTree.

I'm getting stoked!

You missed a good day Denis. Pity about that. If you use a lipo for your Tx, you can charge them in less than an hour. Is it not a lipo?

I had my mate come round, and I had my quad just sitting there on its own, with the Tx on the floor next to him, where he was taking photos. I said, go on, just push that right hand stick forward a bit, and you are flying. He refused, he would not touch my Tx. Refused to be responsible for a crash. I was even just pushing it, bit by bit, saying, go on, but he wouldn't. Should have some good photos though. I'll post 'em up if there are any good ones.

Look forward to your further exploits guys.

Cheers

Sutty

Perfect afternoon to fly here, too!

Stupid me, tipped a few to many before bed, now I feel like my head is an 8ball just ready to be smacked!


Ohhh, I hurt!

I'm back on the DX6i sutty, so it only has 4x1300mahAA ni-mh's that take a good few hrs to cook. I just had a quick look in the battery compartment and it looks pretty easy to mod and solder on a new connector, but it won't fit the DX8 li-po. Don't know the name of the connector type either, or if its a HH special that not generally available. So I could use the DX8 li-po battery, but I would have to buy the connector first

Was in NYC last weekend for a Polish-American picninc organized by my friends in the state park 50 miles north of the city. Can you picture 50+ Polish guys and gals all 50ish or even 60tish slighltly inebriated singing in the woods? Scary lol. Got myself a Horizon Hobby Champ foamy and was learning to fly a plank so to say; had a blast and flew 7-8 batteries; got a bunch of msr batteries dusted off for the occasion, the thing flies on the same tiny lipos

You might be surprised to hear me admit this, but for me truth is for pure relaxing fun flying, after learning to fly just about everything that I can throw in the air, I just can't beat a plane. For that accomplished feeling, nothing beats a srh.
For fun, accomplishment and that adrenalin rush, a multi is it!

Just sent Jim a request for changes to return to land.


This thing is impossible to stall. All it will do is slightly teeter its wings and parachute gently.In rtl mode, I want her to come in to home normally at altitude, at about a 1/4 mile out lower slowly to 150 feet. At 300 feet out, deploy full flaps and just above stall gently parachute land into a tight quarter.

Yeah After today's efforts I feel great! I just love this 450DFC! The bells and whistles have really paid off. In general I just love the 'chop' of the blades on SRH! Gov mode is really kickass and gives a nice 'chop' They get my blood pumping! The Quad is also badass! I'll admit I even have a lot of fun flying it los! It makes my day when I can get it out.

Crikey moses. I'd have done that on the day I discovered the issue, lol. I know you're a busy lad, but hell, it's your DX8!
