Thread: Model enlargement
15/07/2018 20:04:27

If you enlarge the plan by photo copying it do you build on the middle of the line or on the inside/outside as the plan line thickness also increases in size, its something I have not tried but would like to?

Thread: Horus 10x or Taranis 9
28/06/2018 21:05:34

Hi all, I have a Taranis and a Horus X10S, I originally had a JR 9303 on 72mhz and bought a Spektrum plug in module from Spektrum to upgrade to 2.4 this module performed flawlessly in the JR and continues to do so in both the Taranis and Horus, the only issue I have found is the Spektrum 4 channel rx's seem reluctant to bind sometimes otherwise all good. The Horus is on FrSky OS and i will keep it so, the difference between the two is noticeable in the gimbals, having never used hall sensor gimbals I find them rather sensitve but after using them for a few months now I really like them. Whichever transmitter you choose you will be learning a new system and it can be frustrating if you have a club mate who has one of these systems employ his help, both different than my JR not better not worse, that said because I am 70 if the JR had not died or Horizon were still servicing them I would still be using it I was in a way forced to change and could not justify the outlay at my age on one of the expensive brands, for the money you will not - in my opinion - find better value than the Horus X10 or X10s keep us posted.

Good show John, how do you like the gimbals?

Is anybody using the FrSky OS or are you all on open tx, my Taranis is open tx but thought I would give the FrSky OS a trial wondering what other opinions were

They should show up even on the brightest days, WOW.

24/03/2018 21:29:20

Well if they’re not just bright but “flippin” bright they are just what I need.

I’m trying to get all my model maintenance finished before the good flying weather gets to us here on the west coast of Canada

Thanks Cymaz, I have super cub that needs landing lights these may work, nothing worse than having the lights on and they can’t be seen.

24/03/2018 19:15:21

What is the actual size of those lights Cymaz?

Thread: FrSky X10 - Taranis replacement?
25/02/2018 05:08:09

Does anybody have an x10/ 10s yet? I bought one a month ago but the sd card slot was faulty for the little chance I got to use it I love it, trouble is without the sd card slot working I can neither upgrade the firmware or add sounds or images, it is now in the North American warranty centre, be interesting to see turnaround time as service and communication through purchase and questions after have been stella just really wanted to know if anybody else had this problem.

Just wondering how the 180 petrol version is going non?

08/12/2017 19:49:19

Have to agree Jon I hate castor it’s carbon is really hard, being almost deaf I have to use a tachometer to get close after that it’s fly it and damn the torpedoes, I can usually tell wether it’s rich or lean by the way it responds to throttle inputs, also a good indication and one that has worked for me over the years is to set your high end and for the low end with engine at idle pinch the fuel line it should rise in rpm but a hair before stopping if it gathers a lot of rpm it is too rich if none at all it is way lean, you may or may not agree but works for me.

15/11/2017 23:11:53

Speaking of the180 petrol Jon how is it progressing, waiting with bated breath this side of the pond.

Welcome Stephen you will found the people on this forum more than helpful, and remember the only "dumb" question is the one you don't ask and later wish you had.

Thread: Motor squealing at full power
20/09/2017 23:35:46

Chris try the different timing settings on your ESC if that fails to stop the the problem the ESC may be incompatible with the motor, only experienced this once with a Turnigy Plush ESC and a Rimfire electric motor switched to a HiTec ESC and the problem disappeared.

Run both of the OS52 surpass I have on 12x6 perfect prop not too fast but really good thrust.

Thread: OpenTx - Questions and Problems
29/07/2017 23:06:02

Thanks Trevor but no I have not updated anything that's what is so puzzling, the only thing I can think of at the moment is a bad solder joint has finally let go, no hard landings no rough treatment in transit, flys fine one day, go home head out a few days later set up at the field NOTHING, one consolation is that it didn't happen in flight.

29/07/2017 10:19:47

Has anybody experienced trouble with the X6R not binding? I have an X6R that I had in a small electric that was working perfectly fine for 4 or 5 flights then fell out of bind and refused to re-bind, I thought it might be my Taranis at fault but a club mate also tried and failed with his Tx, it goes into bind mode but thats it it will not connect to the Tx, pretty frustrating.

I am willing to listen to anything at the moment.
