DVR file looks pretty good! great days for flying....

   Mi M8,
                Yes, surprised myself how well it worked TBH....I need a 5 volt step UP converter to boost the voltage for the micro DVR.  The Monitors inbuilt Lipo runs at about 4.20 volts, not quite enough to make the DVR run.

  I dropped it on the USB Charger while I did this test which made it run..I ordered a 5 volt step up from E-Bay....2.00 delivered...lol.  Hope it works, it will make life far simpler.

 I really like the Widescreen DVR, looking forward to making some full format PAL 16:9 DVR with my new Eagle 2 from Runcam.
  Im going to need some Video editor which will uncompress the 4:3 DVR file though and then save it as such.

                                                                                                 :vulture:

Are you sure about the CG? The Jamara Roo manual states the CG is at the front edge of the finger grips. I fly mine like this since i built it. I am sure i can go a bit backwards with the CG, but dont know if the middle of the grips is a good idea.
Please report back after testing.
Did 70km on mine and with perfect CG there should be some km more possible.
And be aware there are no new Skyfuns available anymore :D so take care of it

  Hi m8,
            Don't know about the Roo and its C of G...?...I know mine was like yours, set at the front of the finger grips, but I always felt like it was a bit nose heavy having flown it quite a bit now.
  I recall watching a clip of someone using the mid grip position and it was perfectly ok. Remember, this is a Delta Wing, and unlike your normal Flying Wing, they are less picky about CG.

  Yes, as I remarked in my thread, HK have discontinued the Skyfun now....but you can get it from Skyartech if you are prepared to pay a premium price for the bare kit only.....I think it was about $70.
 
  The Roo is probably a better buy, its made from EPO and far better all round.....German...Dunno how much one is or even if you can still get them....Jamara is the manufacturer if I remember ok..?

                                                                                                :vulture:

 Hi Wayne,

                   No mate....mine was a cheapo from E-Bay...but it works ok.

I still use Hobbyking for all my batteries, never found anywhere cheaper

I am learning rate mode on my Martian3 220 quad and I need more batteries. The 2 I have are Infinity 70C (well labelled as such) and came from BangGood. They seem OK to me but I need some more as flying for about 16mins then drive back home isn't giving me much time to learn. I am using FPVFreerider as well which is helping massively but nothing like real flying/crashing :)

So anyone know any economical UK sources for 4S lipo 1300mah to 1800mah at a push?

Cheers for any suggestions.

Hi all,

I'm new to this "world" and I'm a bit lost (I mainly use mini quads). I just bought a mini Drak (if you want to try something, better to choose something good) but I don't know what power plant to use.

I would like flight times over 20 mins because I want to do somewhat medium range, until 5.8GHz video failure. Speed is not a must (I know it's going to be faster than my freestyle quads). I was thinking about iNav, with GPS (for Return To Home) and a Cobra CP-2814 1450kv with a 7" or 8" on 4S 5200mAh batteries, but that's what I wonder will be ok.

I'm from Spain, and here LiPos are pretty expensive and hard to come by, so I usually use Hobbyking EU warehouse. I thought about those Multistar 4S 5200mAh because they are not expensive and are easy to get for me, but... Should I use 5S, maybe 6S?

So, summarizing, if you could help me choose:

1) Motor (not asking for a specific model, but kv number and motor size).
2) ESC (again, not asking for an exact model, just a safe Amp figure).
3) Prop (size and... what about folding props. Not too useful is I'm going to be always the throttle, but better ask)
4) Batteries max size and number of cells.

Again, I'm aiming at somewhat long flight times (I know, for mini quads guys anything longer than 4 mins is long, but I really want to go a few kilometers away without a hurry to come back). I thought about getting a TBS Caipirinha 2 that with a 2814 1050kv advertises +1 hour flight times with a 4S 6000mAh, but for me, you can't beat the aesthetics of the Mini Drak. Even if the build gets me a little bit scared.

Many thanks in advance and excuse me if I don't express myself right in english.

You could remove the protection carefully if you want to. Its just one pcb with flat connector to the other pole. You can also see it through the shrink tube.
