Too late - I lost my rag with it after another night of tweaking and transplanted all of my gear into an old Bixler 1.1 ... I can't be doing with that bobbing, it was way too irritating and I made it my life goal this season to not spend it "faffing" ... the Bixler just works. Boring, but I know it's going to get me a nice flight every time I go out.

  Hi Steve,
                  Oh, that's a shame, I thought it flew really well apart from the bobbing that is.
  I have flown mine in Manual though, and to be honest it's a bit of a handful without a FC in it.

                                                                                                :vulture:

I'll revisit it - maybe with iNav :P   It just needs a FC and Rx.

I have a few spare older FCís that would take earlier versions of iNav. My Z flies ok with iNav but itís very noisy, not stealthy at all. It actually handled quite well in manual before I started tweaking the settings. I may reload the bog standard setting and start over. With ETís launch settings, launch mode is working well now. But for relaxed FPV you canít beat a Skywalker or MTD

Yes... right now I have (live and ready to go)

Bixler 1.1 with Mobius
Skywalker Revolution with VikCam 4K on pan/tilt
Mini Talon with Mobius
Vortex quad with Firefly 7s

So I'm not exactly struggling for things to fly ... don't get me wrong I loved flying this little wing and it gave me tons of confidence but I went on a downer with it once I started tweaking it and lost my Mobius ... then, next session I landed perfectly but snapped another propeller (and I didn't have a spare). That did it!! I can't be going flying and having my precious spare time ruined by snapping a prop through no fault of my own, so I decided to simply bung all the gear into a Bixler which will be less exciting, but very reliable and require next to no faffing around.

As I say, I'll pick it up again - got a few rather large bills to pay in the meantime before I start purchasing more FPV gear though.

As an experiment though, I consider this project a success - apart from the bobbing, the wing flew very well with the T1000FC and I was confident flying it immediately. But the little tweaks and disadvantages (potential prop strikes, bobbing) have made me shelve it. It was very, very convenient to chuck in the car though :)

I So hate those big bills, let me know if you want one of these FC, you can have one of the Naze 32 for postage.

Yea - our fireplace packed up and it's an old parkray coal fired thing (the waterjacket sprung a leak so the mains water had to be isolated and everything drained etc) - we're having to have the whole lot replaced (boiler, cylinder, header tank, pipework, fireplace etc) at a cost of just over 5.5k which is a little bit detrimental to my FPV to say the least lol.

I think I'll stick to the plan and scrape some change together for an iNav setup - thanks for the offer though!

I am sure you have looked into it but as a recently retired plumber builder developer I am sure you can get some assistance from the green deal. We replaced a solid fuel back boiler in one of our properties with a gas combi system and due to the age of the old system got a grant to do it. I am sure that was replaced with this http://www.affordablewarmthgrants.co.uk/info-grant-boilers
Worth a look? As they say at Asda, every little helps.

Thanks for that - having looked into it my income takes us over the threshold for any help but it was worth a try!
