Canada rookie droner needs advice re: parts and mod.

Post by islanddroner12 » 02 Aug 2014, 16:48

Hey all. Glad to see such a great group of Droners.
I am in Vancouver Canada, and am having trouble figured out where to get reliable parts, both replacement and upgrade parts.
I have reciently broke a landing foot on my DRONE 2.0 AND TRIED An epoxy repair but no GO.
So I am looking for a cross piece I guess as I understand I cannot just replace the foot.
A serious manufacturing flaw in my opinion that I have to replace the whole beam and not just the foot, however, this is the perils of a hobby... :)

Also Im not happy with the range issue and will be looking to upgrade to RF or possibly doing the WI-Fi extender system.... I've done the homework, but I'd appreciate people's opinions on what is worth the effort.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Ardroneshow.Com

He only sells what he recommends and he tests just about every after market and OEM part on his YouTube channel. I'm waiting for upgrades to arrive any day.

I've had fair amount of success with this product: J-B Weld for my broken foot.
I agree this part should be replaceable.

Do the zip tie mod will save you a lot of problems
For original part i use the source online web site as they have nothings in bricks and mortar store.
Ncix was also at some point having them but i think they stoped

Now you know the modo if you break it, upgrade it: take look in the mod top section there is a american supplier for a upgraded cental cross. I recommend it

The drone season is short up here as you know, store change with each season.
I broke some prop and will need new one ;)
