Re: How to get your Drone out of that tall tree!

40 feet up. Tree was too thick to shake the Drone loose, and too thin to even think about climbing.
Unfortunately, I did NOT have the pleasure of "driving" this thing. Called a local garden center and they recommended this guy who came out in 20 mins, and only charged me $25. Gave him $40.

Re: My Light Modded Drone

Looks great! What did you use for the tractor beam light, and where did you get it?
Thanks!

My Light Mod

Being inspired by the light mods posted here, I thought I would give it a shot abd try my own. While I really liked the LED strips, I thought I would try something a bit more discrete. These mods are all just to the shell. The Parts: These LEDs were pre-wired with resistors and setup for 9-12volts. ...

Re: Strange Problems after replacing central cross

Exactly - you can hear them rev and slow, and the result is it flies in a sine wave when flying in a straight line. Doesn't seem to be an issue when at stationary hover though.

Not sure how to "reflash" the FW. Is there a link for that? I have only updated the FW using the App method.

Thanks! Bill

Re: Strange Problems after replacing central cross

Thanks for your prompt response Simon. The gears are clean, and each motor seems to be equally free of resistance when I manually spin the props in both directs. Also, when I made this repair, I changed out the bushings for the bearings that have appeared elsewhere on this site. That is easy to reve...
