boo hoo... yea they're poor quality. its an old camera
Flown from a printed quad I hope.
(Ours are a hoot)
no .. not printed
Then print a couple already
We printed a smaller one and a ginormous one...
Not cheap, the money is all in the electronics, but fun to do.
yea, I don't know much about the electrics, matching motors etc. I'm sure I could. I don't have any air related radios that aren't proprietary though.
So yea, the price goes up. It is in my "things to print" if I end up getting some controllers and motors.
lots of parts http://www.banggood.com/QQ-SUPER-Fl...ible-with-FUTABA-S_BUS-Receiver-p-910701.html
There is an entire thread on this. As for radios... These days 2.4 GHz is the one. We back fit our older futaba radios with those transmitter modules. Works like da bomb.
I do enjoy the short antennas at least. But I have 30 years of radios in a box... all my newer ones are using an older version of these
I would get them used from people with broken traxxas crap. Only thing still running am or fm are some old tamiya M chassis cars. I just love it when someone turns on their new digital car and sends mine into the wall. I guess FCC threw away the old xmitters? or is it just that the 2.4 is digital just unregulated.
The 2.4ghz ones are all digital and self-addressing (like self-assigned IP addresses) for non-conflicting addressing.
If you have anything like a futaba 7/8/9 with the removable transmitter channel modules you can just get a 2.4ghz module and plug it in. The ones in your photo .. not sure (I remember those, but never used that style). If they only have removable crystals then I doubt you can get a conversion (but I am by no means sure). You can probably find an old futaba (or a clone) on ebay cheap (worst case). We had a couple hanging around from when we did planes and robots.... Never thought they would be reusable
We had replaced the throttle sticks with self-centering ones (mostly for tank-drive style robots) and I had to go find the old throttle sticks and wire them back in).
I use to fly RC planes. Built a kit controller and receiver But that was back in the days of 54 and 27 frequencies Digital proportional had just came in. You must have the same bucket list. I have a printed UFO on my list. One motor in the middle with servo controlled louvers on the bottom to make it go in any direction.. Hay, I can dream can't I ? lol Frank.
Sorry, I never painted a UFO. You will have to settle for the Wrights
