Comparisons Between Running 4S & 5S on my Turnigy SK4250 650KV Motor

https://youtu.be/C3YyJ4j7xYs
13/09/21

If you have been watching my channel you would have seen me flying my electric conversion trainer called the Canary which is a great model. When flying it on a 4S battery it is under powered so I have purchased a 5S battery which I originally used when I first assembled the model but the battery puffed and had to be retired. It flew very well on the 5S having enough power to do basic aerobatics.

In this video I am going to show you me running RPM and amp tests with the 2 different batteries. The 4S should theoretically give (4.2*4*650) 10,920 RPM
The 5S (4.2*5*650) 13,650 RPM

The propeller is a 11x7

I must say it flies very scale like on the 4S 16.8 v

Results in!
4S amps drawn 24 amps @   8,500 RPM
5S amps drawn 37 amps @ 11,000 RPM

There can be a problem with the MPM firmware update 1.3.2.86 for the RadioMaster TX12 & T8 Pro as some of the units were shipped with a different MCU. If you have come across the “No Telemetry” warning when updating your radio’s MPM this is the way to solve it.

I recently released a video of a problem with my ESC on my old trainer not staying calibrated once the power was removed. The HobbyKing 60 amp ESC would go out of calibration when using the RadioMaster R88 receiver switching to other receivers worked so I have installed a R168 receiver in my Canary trainer which is working great.

Not wanting to leave this and move on with my life I decided to do some more testing. My video explains all.

Review Update Focus: Eachine EV800DM FPV Goggles

https://youtu.be/NCZs2cQ63Gw
13/08/21

The Eachine EV800DM goggles are marketed towards pilots who need to wear glasses. They have space so your glasses can insert into the goggles. I was disappointed when I could not focus on the screen with either multifocal glasses or computer glasses which I use successfully with my other goggles. To Eachine’s credit they do make a magnifying insert you can purchase separately but not supplied with the review goggles which I have now purchased. This addition makes the goggles useable for glasses wearers.

Now I can use the EV800DM goggles I feel the picture quality is good and surprisingly the supplied antennas appear to work great so for a beginner no extra monitory layout for antennas. Upgrading later may help with range but for leaning they should work fine. The DVR quality seems ok but in my test one of the files I recorded was corrupted but this could have happened when transferring the file to my computer.

The goggles are reasonable priced but if you wear reading glasses you need to take into account the add cost of the magnifying insert.

The Eachine EV800DM goggles were kindly supplied to me by Banggood for review.

ESC Calibration Problem Solved

I recently had a problem with my ESC on my old trainer not staying calibrated once the power was removed. The HobbyKing 60 amp ESC would go out of calibration when using the RadioMaster R88 receiver switching to other receivers worked so I have installed a R168 receiver in my Canary trainer which is working great.

So I would recommend if you come across this problem try a different receiver. I am not sure but I think the ESC is getting a command from the receiver and the ESC thinks it is in calibration mode.

Updating your firmware is important and especially with battery chargers so I have decided to make a RC community video once a month letting you know what firmware has been released for the month. I will only be including products I have because I want to be able to update the product and report no problems. It would be advisable to calibrate your charger after updating the firmware.

If there is no report at the end of the month then there were no firmware updates to report. This will save you time going through the websites yourself.

If you would like a product to be added to this list please email the manufacturer on my behalf and ask them to contact me about reviewing the product. triplemadventures@gmail.com

RadioMaster T8 Pro Adding 2 Channels for Flaps

In this video we add two channels to the standard 5ch model to add flaps operated by 2 independent servos controlled by a 3 position switch with sounds assigned to the switch.

We will first take a look at using the wizard but then I will explain why I suggest not doing it that way but manually adding two flap mixes to a standard model.

Review: RadioMaster T8 Pro Range Test with R161 Receiver

https://youtu.be/MpT7mC90gq0
26/07/21

My tutorial videos are still being published for the next couple of weeks for the RadioMaster T8 Pro. I managed to get out of the studio and film range testing the radio. In a recently released video the T8 Pro gave a low telemetry warning at around 200 metres. I already wanted to do my unscientific test because of the lack of external antenna on the T8 Pro and the loss of telemetry prompted me to do the test.

The bottom line is:

TX16S:
First RSSI Lost at 222 metres - First RSSI Critical 254.4 metres - Telemetry Lost NOT at 432 metres
Ran out of space a fence got in the way!

T8 Pro:
First RSSI Lost at 97.1 metres - First RSSI Critical 114 metres - Telemetry Lost at 170.5 metres

A considerable difference, this would not stop me using the T8 Pro for small planes and drones which I will carry on doing so, more bike n Fly! Larger planes which because of their size you could fly further away I would stick to the TX16S, and possibly TBS Crossfire. I have had good results with the RadioMaster receivers and my TX16S.

Review: Eachine EV800DM FPV Goggles

https://youtu.be/uA_uDddYGaM
23/07/21

The Eachine EV800DM goggles are marketed towards pilots who need to wear glasses. They have space so your glasses can insert into the goggles. I was disappointed when I could not focus on the screen with either multifocal glasses or computer glasses which I use successfully with my other goggles. To Eachine’s credit they do make a magnifying insert you can purchase separately but not supplied with the review goggles.

I think the image quality is fine but I deed need to view the goggles from around a rulers length from the screen. Battery life is good goggles operated for over 1.5 hours the visual low battery warning started as 40 minutes. They are easy to operate and not to heavy. They do leak light in at the nose piece as it has no padding.

I will get hold of the optional magnifying lenses and release an update video in the future. If you have 20/20 vision I think these would be a nice budget goggle but if you wear glasses please check before buying.

The Eachine EV800DM goggles were kindly supplied to me by Banggood for review.

RadioMaster T8 Pro How to Set Up Flaperons

https://youtu.be/eTMjKxx9aKY
21/07/21

In this video I will explain how to set up flaperons in the RadioMaster T8 Pro. Flaperons allow you to dual purpose your ailerons as flaps. You need to be careful that you do not set the flap rate to high or you may lose aileron authority. Flaperons do help make slower landing approaches possible but some models may require engine power to overcome the possible extra drag. With my Clouds and Cheetah planes I can use flaps on the glide but must not let the airspeed drop off to much.

RadioMaster T8 Pro Compiling SD Card Contents

https://youtu.be/bxHIXSvnDwo
30/06/21

This video is to help you compile your OpenTX SD Card for your RadioMaster T8. I am going to forward you to my OpenTX playlist to show you how I save all my custom pictures, custom sounds & Amber sound. If you are new to OpenTX this may be a foreign language to you at the moment because I have not reached these subjects in my T8 playlist yet.

When there is a new OpenTX firmware, but not every time, you need to recompile your SD card contents the link below will send you to my video on how I do this.

My Video: OpenTX - My Procedure For Updating SD Card Contents
- (custom pictures, custom sounds & amber sounds).
https://youtu.be/7YXfGNqSiMM
Download OpenTX SD Card Contents:
https://www.open-tx.org/
Go to News and click on latest release. Go to download links and click download SD Card contents. Then download the correct SD Card contents for your radio i.e. opentx-t8.

I suggest you then remove your SD Card from your T8 and format it in your computer. If you have no custom sounds, custom pictures or Amber sounds just copy the contents to your radio’s SD Card and put the SD Card back in your radio and you should be good to go. You can connect your radio to your computer via the top USB-C port and copy the files to the SD Card overwriting the contents but I prefer to remove the SD card from the computer because the process is far quicker on your computer.

Review: ToolkitRC M6D AC Smart Charger

https://youtu.be/QYCOQN_G-cI
25/06/21

Unlike the M6D battery charger the M6Dac does not require a power supply but can be used at the field with a high capacity battery. It is very easy to operate and the quality of the screen is very good. In my tests the chargers fan did not come on when charging the 4S 1500 mAh battery and was very quiet when putting the battery into storage.

The charger can simultaneous charge or storage charge 2 x 6s batteries with XT60 connectors and is rated to 15A per channel.

The ToolkitRC M6Dac was kindly supplied for review by ToolkitRC.

OpenTX Crow Brakes on Throttle Radio Settings

https://youtu.be/dRPyL9x5dUU
18/06/21

I have revisited the Crow Brake on Throttle video for a subscriber who wanted to see the settings on the radio because they do not use OpenTX Companion.

This tutorial video will help you to set up crow brakes in OpenTX using Global Variables. If you want to change a value across multiple mixes then Global variables are the way to go. They are a very useful tool within OpenTX if you need to repeat a value across many mixes. Set up the Global Value and wherever you need the value replace the number with GV1 etc. Want to make an adjustment at the field just go to Global Variables in your radio and change the figure in GV1 job done!

In this video I will show you how to use the throttle to activate the crow brakes.

Review: ToolkitRC M7 Multifunctional Charger

https://youtu.be/lxOmxuhGbTU
30/04/21

This charger requires a power supply or a high capacity battery to operate. It is not just a charger but has other functions including the ability to test servos, receivers and can output power at the voltage and amps you choose, very nice for powering up things on your desk.  The quality of the screen is very good and the M7 is very easy to operate the button and scroll wheel are very positive.

The charger can charge or storage charge 1 x 6s batteries with a XT60 connector.

The ToolkitRC M7 was kindly supplied for review by ToolkitRC.

Review: ToolkitRC P200 Adjustable Power Supply

https://youtu.be/brkBahLc0d0
23/04/21

The P200 is a variable power supply which you can change the Amps and Volts, Amps up to 10 and Volts up to 30. It has GnA (Gallium nitride) technology which helps to keep the power supply smaller and makes the power supply up to 95% efficient as per the power supply specifications.

You will be able to use this power supply for many uses some are shown in my review.

How Do You Assess A FPV VTX System

https://youtu.be/4Mod4CxPfpM
13/04/21

Exactly, how do you assess a FPV VTX system because there are so many variables to consider. I was thinking of testing analog FPV systems but I do not think there is much point. Reviewing them maybe giving the specifications and an overview of how to use them, but suggesting which one to purchases is not a simple choice and very subjective.

Equipment used in video:
Skyzone Cobra X Goggle – Antennas:
VAS Ion Pro RHCP Long Cable & TBS RHCP Patch Antenna
Foxeer Micro Lollipop 15cm 2.5dBi Omni Angle RHCP & TBS RHCP Patch Antenna

Quad:

This charger requires a power supply or a high capacity battery to operate. It can operate as a servo tester as well as test your receivers including SBUS. It is operated via touch switches which work well. The quality of the screen is very good and is very easy to use. It is as very small charger so will not take a lot of room up on your charging table and it is not very noisy.

Connector is a XT60, 1s to 6s batteries can be charged.

Review: ToolkitRC M4 AC Charger

26/03/21

This is as AC charger only and has no facility to plug a large capacity Lipo battery into it to charge at the field so defiantly a home based charger. It is very easy to use just one button you short or long press. It can charge up to a 4s battery but only one at time. In my tests using a 2s and a 3s battery the fan did not come on even when putting a battery into storage.

Two things I like about this charger is you do not need a power supply as it is built in just plug it in the mains and it charges 4 x 4s batteries at a time so you can get out flying more quickly.

It’s down side is the storage charge feature which is very poor see video.

Review: ToolkitRC M8S Multifunction Charger

https://youtu.be/MwbSsv5eVGE
05/03/21

This is a very useful charger which is multifunctional being able to test receivers and servos amongst other things. One excellent feature is the ability to use the charger as a variable power supply being able to change the voltage and the amps.

It can only charge one battery at a time which could be a deal breaker for some users but it can charge up to 8s batteries and recycle the battery you want to put into storage by sending the energy into a battery attached to the input XT60.

You can set up a flight checklist for any of your models which can be helpful to remind you what needs to be done before flying it. An example is my Clouds Fly must not be hand launched at over half throttle or it will go vertical and stall and I may forget this if I do not fly it for some time.

Thanks for watching.

Review: Skyzone / Eachine Cobra X Box Goggles 

https://youtu.be/qA-55wna8h4
19/02/21

The Cobra X box goggles have a lot of features normally reserved for dual screen goggles such as a Head Tracker and a very good video receiver module the SteadyView which is the same receiver as in the Skyzone SKY04X goggles.

My opinion is they are very good but not the cheapest box goggles you can buy, great for pilots who need to wear glasses. The picture quality is great and the menu system easy to navigate.

The Skyzone Cobra X box goggles reviewed in this video where purchased by me and not supplied for review.

Thanks for watching.

I had a subscriber ask me if I could make a video of binding their R161 receiver to their TX12. I had not made a video specifically for the binding process I decided to oblige.

This procedure is the same for most receivers other than you need to select the correct protocol in your radio and the receivers firmware needs to match the protocol in your radios multiprotocol module. Just check the documentation which came with your receiver or go to the manufactures website.

Luckily for me the Clouds Fly has a ZHOD Kopilot Lite on board to take over! It’s so nice just cruising around where I live and have lots of space to fly.

Being up there with the plane is just fantastic experience so many times in my early days of RC flying I knew the plane was having all the fun. Now we can visually share the experience with our models via FPV.

My Clouds Fly is an old lady but still fighting fit and ready to go.

Review: ZOHD Kopilot Lite

https://youtu.be/gvZDZVtEQtg
22/01/21

The ZOHD Kopilot lite is a basic flight controller for RC planes. It will stabilise your model aircraft making it easier to fly which would be great for new pilots though you may need someone to help you initially set the plane up. It includes a RTH Return to Home and Geo fence features but no OSD on screen display. 

I did use my own money to purchase the ZOHD Kopilot Lite reviewed in this video and I think it is worth getting one if you want a basic flight controller in your plane.

RadioMaster TX12 How to Set Up Flaperons

https://youtu.be/P1Vi8mlpmas
18/01/21

In this video I will explain how to set up flaperons in the RadioMaster TX12. Flaperons allow you to dual purpose your ailerons as flaps. You need to be careful that you do not set the flap rate to high or you may lose aileron authority. Flaperons do help make slower landing approaches possible but some models may require engine power to overcome the possible extra drag. With my Clouds and Cheetah planes I can use flaps on the glide but must not let the airspeed drop off to much.

RadioMaster TX12 Compiling SD Card Contents

https://youtu.be/ZHfXD4FIzaM
14/01/21

This video is to help you compile your OpenTX SD Card for your RadioMaster TX12. I am going to forward you to my OpenTX playlist to show you how I save all my custom pictures, custom sounds & Amber sound. If you are new to your RadioMaster TX12 and OpenTX this may be a foreign language to you at the moment because I have not reached these subjects in my TX12 playlist yet.

When there is a new OpenTX firmware, but not every time, you need to recompile your SD card contents the link below will send you to my video on how I do this.

My Video: OpenTX - My Procedure For Updating SD Card Contents
https://youtu.be/7YXfGNqSiMM
Download OpenTX SD Card Contents:
https://www.open-tx.org/
Go to News and click on latest release. Go to download links and click download SD Card contents. Then download the correct SD Card contents for your radio i.e. opentx-tx12.

I suggest you then remove your SD Card from your TX12 and format it in your computer. If you have no custom sounds, custom pictures or Amber sounds just copy the contents to your radio’s SD Card and put the SD Card back in your radio and you should be good to go. You can connect your radio to your computer via the top USB-C port and copy the files to the SD Card overwriting the contents but I prefer to remove the SD card from the computer because the process is far quicker on your computer.

RadioMaster TX12 Set Up Companion, Backup & Update Firmware

https://youtu.be/iaoR3CLIYhY
12/01/21

This video will assist you to download both the new OpenTX Companion utility and your new radio firmware. Please remember to back up your radio and model settings before proceeding with any firmware update because there is a possibility you may lose your radio and model settings in the process. This video is relevant for the RadioMaster TX12 and any other OpenTX transmitter.

Download Latest OpenTX Companion Utility
If you do not already have the OpenTX Companion utility go to the link below under the News section click on the latest version. You then go to the bottom of the page to Download Links and you will see the link to download the latest OpenTX companion utility.

https://www.open-tx.org/

When there is a new OpenTX firmware, but not every time, you need to recompile your SD card contents the link below will send you to my video on how I do this.

My Video: OpenTX - My Procedure For Updating SD Card Contents
https://youtu.be/7YXfGNqSiMM
Download OpenTX SD Card Contents:
https://www.open-tx.org/
Go to News and click on latest release. Go to download links and click download SD Card contents. Then download the correct SD Card contents for your radio i.e. opentx-tx12.

I suggest you then remove your SD Card from your radio and format it in your computer. If you have no custom sounds, custom pictures or Amber sounds just copy the contents to your radio’s SD Card and put the SD Card back in your radio and you should be good to go. You can connect your radio to your computer via the USB port and copy the files to the SD Card overwriting the contents but I prefer to remove the SD card from the computer because the process is far quicker on your computer. 

Thanks for watching.

Just me testing my Red Eagle wing with an upgraded motor 2211 1700kv 2c to 2211 2300kv 3c and the RadioMaster R84 receiver.

Before the wing was very underpowered and I could only just keep it in the air now with the upgrades it is great fun.

Range Test “Real World”: RadioMaster R168 SBUS / PWM D16 Receiver
https://youtu.be/mRcwCw7B5ng
07/01/21

Due to the questions below my video on the Range Test and Review of the RadioMaster R168 receiver I decided to run another test using a servo on one of the channels to check for fail safe or servo glitching. You will see in the video that the receiver was operating at 1.3 km perfectly. This test was completed at ground level so in the air line of sight it could go further.

Just for reference there is a high powered 2.4gHz WiFi transmitter near to where I do all my receiver tests but in a built up area there could be far more 2.4gHz signal traffic which could affect the receivers performance. 

This is not a scientific test and I use the data to compare receivers under the same conditions, the results which of cause could be different in other environments.

The R168 was kindly supplied for review by RadioMaster.

Please see link below for full details of how I carry out my unscientific tests. The results in my video will be available in a document file on my google drive for you to check out.
