    Looking to acquire gimbal calibration software for the CGO3+

    Yeah, I have not reached out to him and probably won't. I don't think I will be staying with these drones much longer. Yuneec is no longer unique without full support. The problem with paying to have our gimbals calibrated, after replacing a mainboard, is the cost. Yuneec was charging around...

    3dr Solo batteries in a H

    Just look at this forum. I remember a time when you would see a LOT more posts than you do today.

    3dr Solo batteries in a H

    The problem with Yuneec and its fanbase (customers) is that everyone wants to hold on to their secrets. Everyone feels as though Yuneec has left us hanging with the loss of their US location. I have been flying, building, and programming drones since eBay started listing them. My advice to...

    Looking to acquire gimbal calibration software for the CGO3+

    I see. I can't understand why they are so tight with this software. Especially since they are no longer servicing the US. It's all good though. I will break this software and have something working soon. When I do get it going, I am going to flood it out to everyone. I plan on selling everything...

    Looking to acquire gimbal calibration software for the CGO3+

    I have a copy of some software that is used to calibrate gimbals. here is the manual that comes with the software. I am looking at reworking this software to work with Yuneec gimbals. Know any good coders? I do code a bit b ut this gets a bit over my head. I am learning though. One of my 3d...

    3dr Solo batteries in a H

    Sorry for the late reply but I get busy as crap sometimes. I used that battery tray STL, yes. The battery protection board is one I picked up on ebay for about 5 bucks. You can swap out the cells and use the battery board from the 3dr battery. Just be sure to use a good charger with it.

    3dr Solo batteries in a H

    I have been playing around with my batteries again. I had a friend bring me 2 3dr Solo batteries since he trashed his 3dr drone. I noticed the cells were very close to the Typhoon H and H Plus specs so I opened one up. It has the same voltage, amps, and current drops as the H battery. I 3d...

    Has your Yuneec drone gone for a swim?

    I've seen some of his videos. Very smart guy. MacBooks and iPhone repairs are great money. People want to hang on to these higher-priced electronics. I have started repairing Apple Watches now. I purchased the tool needed to reload firmware to repair the ever-dreaded Apple logo flashing.

    CGO2, CGO3, CGO3+ boards

    It has been a long time since I have been able to update my posts. I did have an old cgo2 board lying around and I stole a choke from it. After reflowing the choke to the cgo3+ board, I now have a working camera gimbal. I didn't try to solder it since it was so small. I used solder paste on the...

    CGO3+ gimbal board

    I wanted to update this post. I was able to solder one of these I found from an old cgo2 board I had lying around for parts. The part is called a common mode choke. This was a looooong project but I was able to repair the camera board and am using it once again. It is called a common mode...

    Has your Yuneec drone gone for a swim?

    I hope I am putting this post in the correct place. I want to share a bit of information I have learned. I do repairs to most all electronics and have found that water and current-carrying parts do not mix well. (DUH) If you have ever accidentally gotten some of your electronics wet, then you...

    Back in shape!

    Hey guys, I had to step away from the hobby for a bit. I had some health issues to deal with. I am sorry for any delays I may have caused with my posts. I am finally starting to get back to normal again and have time to work on my favorite hobby once again. It truly sux getting old.

    You should really have talked with the owner of Yuneecskins.com He has them (with trade) for 199
