Testing the water ARDrone2 for sale

In Ottawa, but I am considering selling my Drone 2 setup. I've put in over $800 CDN into this ($1000 if you include taxes / shipping) but kind of need the money for other things.

Re: The Batteries Topic

I'm thinking it is a safety thing. I suspect the drone reads bit as 0% when there is actually 30 left. When o plugged in my battery to charge it wasn't down to 0 (thankfully). Probably would have had enough time to land though I try to keep a close watch on my battery power. When o get down to 50 I ...

Re: PLEXIGLASS GEAR & SHAFT PROTECTOR FOR AR DRONE 2.0 & 1.0

Re: Cheap RTF micro Quad

At 100% it goes into Trick mode. This means that when you press the paddles to thier full left or right the drone will ...

Re: using lipo to power router

Alarm would warn you when your lipo gets low protecting the lipo from damaging itself... fuse would protect both router and lipo in the event of a short I just realixed that the rechargable battery that I show in the pics above is a Lithium Ion battery, not a LiPo.

This is typical of them and it'll take me a couple days to have everything ironed out.

Re: Wifi Repeater to boost the range

Re: using lipo to power router

I got my battery and luckily the connectors match so no need to get an adaptor.

I haven't tested it yet but I will report back after a field test.
