Getting back into quads
« on: May 26, 2018, 11:09:31 PM »
I sold all of my RC stuff and decided to get some inexpensive toys to replace what I had. I bought a Frsky QX-7 transmitter and an Eachine QX-95 BNF quad. When the quad arrived it had a problem right out of the box. It was all out of whack and I broke a prop and replaced it with the wrong one but the QX-95 had deeper problems. I finally decided to flash it with the latest version of Betaflight and I found a quad called the Lizard 95 or something like that on Eachines.com and it had a text file so I copied the contents of the text file and pasted and saved it to the cli interface in Betaflight. After a little fine tuning I was able to make it flyable, it still needs work but here is a couple of videos, one is the maiden and the other is after a few adjustments.

This is the maiden:

This is after a little fine tuning:

No problem Dave, I know all too well about health problems my friend, it's all good. I'm waiting on my new action camera and once that gets here there will be plenty of videos, just got 5 new flight packs which gives me 7 in all so i'm looking forward to hanging out in the back yard flying my :censored: off.

Yeah it's tough sometimes getting outside but the Doctor wants me to get out in the Sun and fresh air hence one of the reasons for resurrecting my interest in this hobby. I'm still thinking about a micro helicopter in addition to my quads, maybe a Wltoys or XK110 6ch fbl or maybe just a WLToys V930 or V911 or V913 and the module to go into my QX 7 transmitter. That should help keep me from getting bored flying the same thing over and over. The good part is hopefully I'll get fairly proficient with them outdoors so I'll have good luck indoors next winter, we'll see huh? My Son is starting to show a little interest again so maybe we'll make this a Father and Son deal. I wanted to go to the Helis over Delaware event last weekend but I wasn't feeling up to hanging out in the heat, we were thinking about catching the Warbirds over Delaware but that is going on from July 11th to the 14th, today through Friday and we just aren't ready to take that ride. It's about an hour away and my Son's A/C is on the fritz so I can't deal with this heat. Oh well, maybe next year. I'll check out Youtube and there is a guy that sells videos of these events. Well my action camera should be here today or tomorrow and I got the SD card and a hat clip so maybe some videos by the weekend, we'll see.
