I once left my Fatsharks on with a battery plugged in; by the time I noticed it, the alarm wasn’t even beeping. I was horrified that my battery was destroyed, but apparently there’s an over-discharge protection circuit, because when I checked the voltage, it was ~3v per cell!
@Chadwick That could be. I’ll check the specs.
@Frank I might do that;
@Terje I might go that route instead. But if the Emax motors are better, I might just buy the power pack.
I actually got an idea for re-branding the Emax motors: the current ones that David sells have a red base.
are all black. If David would replace the red ones with the black ones and add an RCExplorer.se sticker that would wrap around the motor bell, wouldn’t it be almost the same as the older 2208s?
Just an idea.
But the Emax motors look pretty sweet too. The only reason why I wanted the old ones was to be able to run up to a 7″ prop and also to have the cool RCExplorer.se logo.
Oh no 🙁
I think I hate this more than you hate the Taranis or the Futaba Super 8 😀
How about the SoloShot :D? Naw, it’ll probably interfere with the RC/FPV radio links.
But that gives me an interesting idea: using an antenna tracker… as a camera tracker!
Just found this on Team Legit’s website: http://team-legit.com/NZ-GPS-for-Naze32_p_77.html.
What do you think?
My first thought was that you couldn’t get the flight control board to arm. Be sure to assign a switch to arm and disarm the board, and assign another switch to select flight modes.
Both the Mini Tricopter and the V3/3.5 have a special code written for them by Lauka. Since this code came out pretty recently, I assume that you have something else…
I would try the CW props and see what happens. Good luck! 🙂
Sorry to hear that! It depends on if you’re running the Triflight firmware or not. If you are, then you might run into some trouble as the software is written assuming that you use a different prop layout. If you aren’t, then you might be alright; I’m not sure. What flight controller are you using?
One thing that I can guarantee you is that you won’t have any problem using up the props, as you only need to crash a few times to use ’em up 😀
Good point @Terje! 🙂
There obviously should be a failure point somewhere, and it should be something that’s easy and inexpensive to replace. “Sip”-ties 😀 work great for that.
I use the RunCam Sky-II board camera, the same one that David used in the build video. It works fine; I also use the Lumenier 650TVL CCD camera on some of my other builds: http://www.getfpv.com/lumenier-cm-650-mini-650tvl-camera-26x26mm.html.
Hope this helps!
Interesting that so many people are reporting motor and ESC failures on the Mini Tricopter… maybe David needs to look into making a better electronics pack???
David is planning to make a board with an 8v (I think) BEC so that the servo has more torque.
