    Greetings from Australia

    Hi Cate and welcome from another Ozzie. I am in Brisbane and use the H for inspection work. All that I can say is read and read and practice without the camera. If you are considering getting your license you will be tested without looking at the screen for a complete flight of one battery as...

    **** Battery build **** What do you think?

    That's OK Sureshot (Bill)or (Wild Bill), I am using the batteries in some torches for my worksites. It seems like what PatR said along time ago that the 'c' rating that Yuneec gives you at 8 'C' does not stack up. I am also looking at capacitors in blocks to see if they also work. The small mod...

    **** Battery build **** What do you think?

    HI Sure shot, I built a similar pack that actually just fitted into a 3d printed battery shell and had it working. It lifted off and hovered for about 2 minutes then went I to low battery mode. Landed it and watched the voltage recover and started the props again and that was it. The 18650...

    Point-Of-Interest (POI) malfunction

    Omarcito, I hope that I did not sound too school headmaster type, it was not intended. I agree with the idea that the St16 should deny the start of a mode untill all of the parameters is locked in. I feel for you and you are correct in that "it is better late than never". The photo shows that...

    Point-Of-Interest (POI) malfunction

    Hi Omarcito, I am feeling you anguish and disappointment. 1) First thing I noted was , why were you flying the H from inside your RV. 2) The interference from all the metal and surrounding electrical gear ,it is a wonder that the ST16 even was able to connect and fly your H . 3) In the manual...

    TY -H GPS Tower

    HI Keith, I would call the $7 eBay gps relocator a pancake, as has been discussed in numerous earlier threads. The maker of the pancake used the word TOWER to gain sales on the back of my TOWER as it is cheaper and as others have said after they purchased it , poorly manufactured, does not...

    Disaster!

    Hi Rubik, I feel for you, it comes as a shock. But you are probably correct in that the TEMPERATURE affected the battery and its ability to make enough power available in the cold conditions. Lotas of luck with the next one, pitty you could not retrieve it for spare parts. Johnno Hennessy. Keep...

    gps compass tower ?

    Hi jaylitton73, Looks very interesting, I saw something the same on an H for sale in the classifieds. It looks like two $7 PANCAKE mods with a connecting piece. I am wondering is it removable and able to fit in the backpack. Johnno Hennessy. Keep flying on the GREEN SIDE of the GRASS.

    gps compass tower ?

    Hi PatR, I was about to post that for johnnyb57 but you beat me to it. I have not contacted you for a while have been busy working and trying different mods for the best results from the fan. I have found that if I block off the top vents on the shell with cello tape from the inside, I am...

    gps compass tower ?

    HI johnnyb57, Just to answer a statement about the TOWER. It is not glued on, the base adapter that is hot melt glued to the top of the shell above the GPS position, is also supplied with two 3 mm polycarbonate screws and lock nuts for security, I have stated in my videos that I have not used...
