Re: OpenTX voice file generator

Hi All

My old version of the simple sound generator 'vanished'.

Just whipped up a new one!

Re: Aloft Taranis Support is Awful!

Oh I love this comment. - Which leads me to the outright theft of the intellectual property shown in the V1 Taranis which is obviously a physical copy of a Spectrum radio. - Maybe the user should stop making unfounded comments. Pretty sure that back in here day the molds where purchased from Jr who ...

Re: FAA Unmanned Aircraft Systems Registration 2015

It's all about risk. Check this video. https://youtu.be/b3IV8GTFdgA Is it risky? Consider that it is flown with a quad that weighs a massive 40g with battery. It uses low power brushed motors. They do not have any torque on them and a blade of grass stops them at full speed. So what is more risky? F...

Re: FAA Unmanned Aircraft Systems Registration 2015

The issue is more that you did not have any frame of reference on which to make the judgement of the height and trajectory. You essentially have a blue sky and a plane of x size to make am estimate on. Totally inaccurate. Now.. Don't get me wrong here. I personally believe that spotter less fpv shou...

Re: FAA Unmanned Aircraft Systems Registration 2015

I have to disagree with you. Your view point is typical of the view held by those who do not fly fpv. Unfortunately it is flawed with lack of fpv experience. Regarding depth perspective. With fpv you have no more and no less than with a normal aircraft. To understand this you need to realise that de...

Well.. it started as a review of the Review of the XMF3E Frsky Brushed Flight Controller

The Frsky XMF3E is Frsky’s entry into the world of tiny whoop flight controllers. There are a number of superb flight controllers for the frsky protocol – all of them using the hacked D8 protocol; so I was excited to be giving the opportunity to try the new XMF3E. Frsky are clearly wanting a slice o...

Re: RE: Re: FrSky Taranis Q X7 Radio

I don't like the fact that this radio has only 32Kb eeprom like the Taranis. I doubt you will fit 60 normal models in it. I would have thought that frsky would have corrected some mistakes on this one.. But so far the only really good thing they did on this one compared to their older radio, was to...

Mini quads are big. Fasted growing part of the hobby.

This sort of set makes sense for people who only fly them. Especially the gamer generation.

Not for me.. But I suspect it will sell well.

If you are interested. You can buy and AC410(small) and I can make the code for re-purpose as tx module TX (with ppm decoder)and you can re-flash it with new firmware.it is not complicated to change the code from RX to TX.I have both.If you remove the pinheader is even smaller. http://www.hobbyking...

Believe most openlrs systems are dual function. You configure it either as a tx or rx.

So technically... I could make it a tx.
