Last few little bits were done this morning and first test flight not so good as she wanted to flip over.
You can probably guess the cause if I tell you it wasn’t props, yes that’s correct I’d connected my motors up wrong well I had basically reversed the connector so 2, 3 & 4 were swapped.
After this issue had been sorted she took to the sky and although she needs some trimming and PID adjustment she fly’s ok.
Final flying weight with a 1500mah battery is 444g
Video coming soon.
Here she is
Not quite finished as I still need to terminate the connection loom into a connector and also hook up the receiver to the flight controller although this is easy enough as I already have that cable ready made.
Well I tried to use the built in upgrader to update my install but that didn’t work so I ran softalicious and tried a fresh install but that failed due to their being an existing installation ok fine I’ll delete the folders and run it again as I’d already exported an xml file of my posts.
That worked however I had obviously already deleted the uploads and media folders so any posts with embedded pictures are now broken and anything I’d uploaded is gone.

Total OBD rubbish more like, I purchased this in October as it was priced at $97 due to “Price is temporarily lowered because we’re doing a price marketing test during October 2013. Get TOAD at $100 off while this lasts.”
Well guess what? Yes that’s right it’s currently:
“Price is temporarily lowered because we’re doing a price marketing test during November 2013. Get TOAD at $100 off while this lasts. ”
It’s a bit like a permanent closing down sale at DFS.
I also purchased their USB OBD interface because it uses original firmware and is faster than the Chinese copies well guess what again yes it’s just a Chinese copy drop shipped from dx.com I have to say the interface does seem to work but cost 3 times what I could have bought it direct from DX for myself.
I am still waiting for the DVD to be delivered so only time will tell if the software supplied is worth it or if that is a load of tosh as well.
Well the software DVD that was eventually delivered just contained copies of hacked and cracked software and the main piece of software they claim to develop is called ScanMaster ELM which they provide a cracker for.
This piece of software is very good but is developed by wgsoft.de
I opened a paypal dispute with Total OBD and got a full refund as they are selling pirated software and drop shipping rubbish hardware, good marketing scam.
Coming soon supplies for quad copter and multi rotor builders.
3D Printers Frames, Parts, Esc’s and more
Seems to me that the simple way to beat an ATM skimmer with a camera that captures your pin is to switch to a 6 digit or longer pin and then the ATM requests a random combination.
Just a tip for now, don’t pre-create the username and database as the setup wizard will do it for you.
During the creation of a new datastore just enter the sa account password and the rest it sorted for you.
