Hi all,

 

I'd like this discussion to focus on the bits we need to know or can modify specifically for our UAV's.

I know there are lots of forum discussions elsewhere on the Turnigy/iMax/Flysky Tx but none just for UAV

Firstly ... the Control Mode Switch
has anyone worked out how to program the Tx to create a good control mode switch?
I've looked for and failed to reprogram the 3 pos mixing switch.
OR have you replaced one of the trim pots with a switch ? Love to know the part if so.

Thanks in advance
Brett
I think best way to use this 3 pos switch is to add suitable resistors to make 3 different values and change it then to one of top pot channels like pit hover or so.. On special firmwares there might be possibility to do this in software too but then you need to modify a lot more.

I'm just planning to use one of the channels in way that I can have 4 switch information.
Thanks for those ideas and thoughts Jani.

Still would be good to hear of a part off the shelf.
Hi, if you guys need help with the programming of the 3way I can help.. I use a turnigy for my uav... No soldering or anything.. Just the right mixing of gear and aux or aux and aux or flap and aux.. Easy to do!

Yep but we need aux channels too :)

Anyways i would be interested to hear more how you have mixed it in your TGY radio for my other uses. And I'm sure that everyone else would be interested too.

I was even thinking to have small extra switch box that connects to trainer port to provide few extra buttons..
Yes I'd like to hear your mixing steps thanks Cronselaar.
Replacement LiPo battery:

Space available 31 x 31 x 110 mm (note 31mm H and W are close to absolute max)

Option 1: 2 pack cylinders
Rcgroups forum has notes that a 2 pack 2400mAH Lipo pack will do the task and give 8hrs plus flying.
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1035575&highlig...
Available in US and others at http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.20392
Au http://www.ledcentral.com.au/index.php?page=shop.browse&categor... UltraFire Au$16.50
Au http://www.gadgetsdirect.com.au/index.php?main_page=product_info&am... TrustFire Au$27.00 incl post
Discharging and charging protection circuitry built-in.
This option seems to need soldering of connectors on to cells - is there a safety issue?

Option 2: 2 pack rectangular - normal rc shape
Like this 850mAh one:

60x31x16mm

Anyone had experience changing over to Lipo's?

Anyone done soldering on a 2 pack lipo?

Thanks for any advice.
Hi
I hope this helps...I dont have an internet connection at home... Using a blackberry with the BIS... Typing takes forever..
Anyway...
Enter the menu( It is important to note that enter needs to be pressed to save changes made in menus)
1 Go to the AUX-CH menu
2 Change CH-7 to HOV THRO
3 press enter then exit menu
4 Go to PROG MIX enter mix1
State ACT
Master AUX
Slave FLP
Offset 000
Uprate -100
Dnrate 000
SW NOR
5 Save this by pressing enter
6 Go to PROG MIX enter mix2
State ACT
Master AUX
Slave FLP
Offset 000
Uprate 100
Dnrate 000
SW ID2
7 Save this by pressing enter
This setup leaves two extra channels open for use... These can be set in the AUX-CH menu
( Just take care in selecting the right AUX in mixing as 2 are available)
If you need help... Just shout...

I use this http://hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=7346

the connector works, the battery fits though a tight fit.
size is 102x30x26mm
Only just starting using it so not much experience with it apart from it plugs in and works
Thanks Tim,
You got me thinking and sounds like 3S is all that is readily available in look alikes (3S is meant to generate heat with the volt drop and wasteful - I'm not sure myself but sounds fair)
I think I will go for
http://hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=6955
as it is slightly smaller and seems to have same connectors.
Capacity: 2500mAh
Voltage: 11.1v
Constant discharge: 3-5C
Burst discharge: N/A
Weight: 142g
Size: 100x28x23mm
Plugs: Futaba, JST-XH, JR/Spektrum
Thanks for all that button pushing to type it in Gerrit, I shall give it a try soon.
