  4. Trying to get my hands on a FIMI X8 SE drone. Preferably new. The usual places such as Banggood are either out of stock, back ordered, or can’t ship due to the demonstrations in Hong Kong. If anyone has another reputable place where I can purchase one, please let me know. Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I have a MJX Bugs 3. I know that this drone uses the Blomiky B3 Receiver. Is the controller (transmitter) that came with this drone compatible with any other receivers or other drones? The reason I ask is that I want to try and build my own drone using my 3D printer. While I will have to buy all the various parts such as the receiver, ESCs, and motors, I would prefer not having to buy another controller. Other than I know it works on the standard 2.4 GHz, I can't find anything else about the controller. Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

  7. Greetings, I am new to this forum. I recently purchased a RUKO F11 Pro model quad. I love this drone but after 2 days while flying at night it went rogue and fled south at high speed from me. Even with the GPS engaged I chased after it for almost 2 miles but it failed to return to me even with the return home feature used repeatedly. Any advice that you might have would be great. I'm really disappointed and lost a good drone. :( Thanks, -- Trev
  8. The capacity of the LiPo battery is measured in mAh . mAh basically means the current that you can extract from the battery for one hour. For example, for a 1000 mAh 3s battery, it takes an hour to fully discharge if a constant 1A current is drawn from it. If the current draw is doubled to 2A, the duration will be halved to 0.5 hours. If you keep pumping 30A, this battery pack can only last for 2 minutes. Increasing battery capacity may increase flight time. In general, it is best to get the highest possible capacity battery. Higher capacity can also provide you with higher discharge current, but the weight will be larger and larger, physical size. The bigger. There is a trade-off between capacity and weight, which affects flight time and aircraft flexibility. In addition, another factor to consider is the discharge rate. Using a too low discharge rate (C rating) may cause damage to the battery, and the drone's battery is not enough to quickly discharge current to properly power the motor. Since the higher Class C battery is heavier, if you use a battery with a C rating that is too high, you will carry the extra weight , which ultimately reduces flight time.

  10. Hope you already solved the problem. If not: I had the same problem. Took me several weeks to find the problem. (stupid) Newby mistake: you have to finish the recording before powering off the drone.
  11. Thank you Alex: I appreciate you getting back to me about this. I really do but I think I will still PM you to unregister. I've been doing some internet searches regarding my initial inquiry both on YouTube as well as the Android phone forums and as I suspected, such a thing is possible. It's funny that no one has posted a video on how to do such a thing. I would think that this kind of information would be very useful for those folks who didn't want to tie up their existing cell phones and who also happened to have a spare no-longer-used cell phone laying around. My particular old Android phone has been laying dormant in my closet for several years now. Thankfully it still falls within the right version or operating system to support the drone app I need. (just barely) I hope I didn't come off sounding smug with my last post. It's just that my initial inquiry was part of my internet search for information on the possibility of using an non-service-provider-connected Android cell phone as my drone's dedicated live feed monitor. My apologies if I offended. I have to do these kinds of internet searches even if it means joining and then un-joining various forums. I'm tech-retarded and dyslexic on top of that so this is what it takes for me to get up to speed on some things. Even then, when it comes to tech gadgets like drones or cell phones and such I'm still left scratching my head wondering; WTF??? For me, ignorance is not bliss. Tim M.
  12. Have you tried a different media player? So even VLC not working? https://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.html
  13. This definitely isn't a busy forum, so if you are looking for something with a quicker response, you'll need to find a more active forum. As far as your original question, as long as the phone isn't too old and has the latest ios or android installed to run the latest manufacturer's app, I don't see an issue with most. I use an older iphone 6 on one of my play drones and it works fine. if you want to unregister, just pm me and I'll remove your membership, no problem.
  14. Well dang; Me and the two people who viewed my post must be the only members of this forum. I thought I'd have an answer by now. Can anyone tell me how to unregister? There has to be a forum somewhere with the knowledge base to be able to give an answer. I know I don't have the answer. That's why I came here.
  15. Expanding my knowledge and reach into this field, I have my Part 107 already and looking to create partnerships and opportunities with others that see this beyond a hobby.
  16. I'm a total newbie with drones or quadcopters. I get the gist of what they are all about but on the tech side there's grey area for me. I think I may be dyslexic or something like that but I'm quick learner once I've had a chance to play around with stuff like this. My question about these drones that require the downloading of a specific app in order to use as an additional means of controlling your drone; and to work as a live feed display to see what your drone-camera is seeing; does the cell phone one uses have to be connected to a cell-phone-service provider??? What I'm getting at is; I have a couple of old cell phones that I don't use any more. One is an older iPhone and the other is an Android model. They both have the WiFi protocol that's needed to send and receive the signals that would go back and forth from the drone to the cell phone. Would it be possible to use one of my old cell phones if I were to download the needed app onto my existing service-connected cell phone then transfer that app manually to my non-service-connected cell phone so that I could use that non-service-connected cell phone as a dedicated monitor for the drone in question? I'm hoping the answer is yes cause I see no reason to use up the battery of my existing service-connected cell phone as a display for what the drone camera is seeing. With my older non-service-connected or no longer used cell phones I even have extra batteries so that would be a plus as well. Additionally, If such a thing is possible I most likely can delete all unneeded apps and widgets that came with those older cell phones and further increase the battery life of those cell phone batteries some what too. Thanks in advance for your input.
