Default XK K130 announced

I went ahead and pre-ordered one (First 50 are $20 off). Anyone else ? It will be interesting to see how it stacks up against the Blade 130S. I don't need the RTF radio but WTH. It might be a while before they sell it BNF. I'll probably use my Jumper Plus radio.

Looks interesting. I wish that they had used a plastic rotor head to keep the mass down for crashing. I was flying my 110 last night and dumped it a bunch of times with no issues. Hoping this is nearly as durable.

Just downloaded the manual for the K130. It shows the X6 radio with the extra switches added for Channels 7-8. I modded one like that I had with the holes and jacks already there on it.



You can download the manual here

Wasn't there another thread about this heli now i cant find it any how.
is that a XT60 connector or a tiny XT30 wonder why they didnt just use a JST that is what is normally on 2s 600mah packs


anyone think have a clue what battery's will fit it? im really thinking about ordering one.


maybe a battery like this

https://www.ebay.com/itm/GNB-600mAh-...4383.l4275.c10


or
https://express.google.com/u/0/produ...oaAhepEALw_wcB


I had some of the tattu ones for my torrent 110 but i sold them cause i like my i think there 900mah packs better. got longer flights. most packs this size is cheap is the luck thing.

So far this is the only battery I've found with the right dimensions and near the 600mAh of the stock one. Unfortunately it's near impossible to find right now. I was able to purchase four on Amazon (now unavailable) and another person found two from a China seller. BTW it's an XT30.

Never had seen the brand before. I translated some Chinese forums and also asked BG who said it would fit the K130 well. Just glad I got the four. They were $16.95 per package of two when they were available on Amazon.

oh alright..

hey i wanted to ask about your Jumper Plus radio i never heard of one so i googled and seen them online for sale, lil confused. do they come with the module you just have to put it to whatever you want to use it with? or is it bare and you have to build the module for it? Guess i should try and find a youtube video about it. One reason i sold my K120 was kinda tired of the cheap tx with it I know on RCG there trying to figure out if we could install a dsm rx to work with this one.

All the various protocols are built into it. I've been able to control everything so far using it but prefer my DX9 for DSMX/DSM2 models. It is much better on the other stuff than the cheapo stock radios. You can find new builds for it on the Deviation forum along with model files. They also make an OpenTX version.

I watched a couple of YT vids... it's a little beast! Surprised me a little. I predict crash durability as poor. lol Awesome advanced micro for the money.

I'm still thinking about pre-ordering from Banggood, but jeeez guys, have you read the manual? It's terrible.

Very little of it makes much sense, the gyro calibration explains nothing and refers to a plane.

The diagram that shows the ports on the main board refers to the additional Sat port as being 3.3v for JR DMSS, no mention of Spektrum DSMX (though I's sure it will be supported) and it says that the 5v port is for a Futaba s-bus J Rx.

Ummm, It should support Futaba S-FHSS out the box, right? So perhaps the 5v port is so you can connect a FASST Rx, but that's not what it says..

I think I'll hold off and see if you get yours and perhaps post a review before the 22% discount ends on Banggood on the 30th.


Cheers!!

Thanks and sure I'll post a review. I won't be smacking mine around though just some sport flying. How it handles in the wind will also be something I will look at. I remember the 130S and 150X both didn't have very glowing reviews also especially at first. I will also be reporting on how it binds/works with my Jumper radio. Might even try it with an older X6 and see what that yields.

I'm no 3D super star either, so your review will be more in line with how I would be flying the K130, though I will probably be flying it indoors the most.
