I also had that discount.  Smile After I was done shopping, I went through the list and looked at each article for 5 minutes to see if I got such a discountwindow. Saved me about 25 euros total.

It would have been cooler to build myself, but this was cheaper, with better parts and it flies. I was like; fuck it, i'm getting this one.

Was thinking the same. There are people walking by in the background that could easily get hurt if something goes wrong.
If a prop breaks or anything that makes the thing go out of control, its like a flying axe.
Still nice flying, but not very responsible to pick such a busy park to do it.

And yes I also bought a Taranis transmitter. Smile Well not yet though.. When I wanted to pay for my order I found I could only pay with creditcard or Paypal. I don't have a cc or Paypal account, so I had to make one first, but it takes a while to get the account activated.

My paypal got activated and I could finally pay for my order at Hobbyking. cheers
Now waiting for a Taranis X9D PLUS and Quanum Outlaw 180, also ordered a fpv camera system and a bunch of extra props. Surprised

This video almost makes me regret buying a Taranis.
But I expect it to be a lot better then what I have now and I can't afford more expensive ones.
The negatives they come up with are opinion based and makes them sound spoiled.
Looks more like they are bullshitting and making a joke then doing a serious review. Very Happy

Yes, well I watched it all, waiting for some usefull comment, but they only kept blabbing about made up stuff.
Guess they are better at flying then acting.

Haven't got it yet, think it's still going to take a while. I ordered it together with the Taranis, but that is out of stock and on backorder. Found this review vid, which gives a good idea of what to expect. Though the quad looks awesome the way it is, the electronics on the bottom look kind of fragile. I rather have all that stuff in the middle. I am considering to take it apart and rebuild it if possible, but I have to see it up close to see if that can be done.

I finally received my lost model alarm. cheers After doing a bit of research I managed to get it working. But I can't install it till I order a female lipo balance plug. For testing I had stuck the lose wires in the batteryplug, so I know it works. Frustrating not to have any plugs in the house, I only need 1 plug. Rolling Eyes

Last time I lost the quad in high grass I could only find it by giving a bit throttle and listening, otherwise it would have been gone.
When crashing with fpv goggles on it's very difficult to tell where the crash was. If I had earplugs for onboard sound I'm certain the quad would already be lost. Only because I hear in which general direction the crash was I know where to look.

So I'm very glad with this alarm, now I only need 1 lipo plug to make it work.

cool

Aah that's nice. Banggood has such good service. Smile

Before you buy this one, maybe look around a bit. The Eachine alarm takes a minute after 'losing contact with/turning off' transmitter, before it starts beeping.
There are other cheaper buzzers that you can install on a free receiverchannel, that can be linked to a switch on the transmitter.

Like how it is done in this video:

Thanks Muck, for making a special place on the forum to post all things related to drones and multicopters.  

Now I can post vids as a seperate posting, instead of making this 1 giant topic that keeps on top of the list of latest topics for ever.

 


Also I cancelled my X9D/Outlaw180 order at Hobbyking, and bought the Taranis at a local store.
Now looking for parts at Banggood, going to build the quad myself now. Think it's going to be a 150 size model.

The order at Hobbyking was originally priced around 350 Euros total. At the last point during checkout I got confronted with insane high shippingcost. Shipping was going to be 65 Euro extra. After having spent half the day making the order, searching the site, etc, and going through the hassle of setting up a Paypal account, I went ahead with it anyway. Can't buy an Outlaw180 here in Holland so I thought I take the shippingcost for granted. But after finishing payment and waiting a few days I decided to look up how much I'd have to pay for tax and custom fees. This turned out to be a ridicilous 115 Euro I had to pay extra upon receiving me package at the door. Making the total cost about 530 Euros. Shocked I cancelled the order cause I'm not going to pay that much extra for shipping, taxes and custom fees. Much more fun buying cheap loose parts from China and not paying any tax at all. Here in Holland I can import articles costing up to 25 dollar without having to pay taxes. Smile

Dammit Mad , so you had to pay total £87 extra? Fucking criminal government rules. The high shipping costs is also ridicilous. But that is store related and even here in Holland some stores ask ridicilous prices for shipping. While back I needed a new closet. It costed about 75, but to get it send to my house, about 20km away, I had to pay 75 extra. Rolling Eyes Luckily my dad has a big car and wanted to go pick it up for me.

I first bought the Taranis at Hobbyking for the same reason as you, it is mostly sold out everywhere else. But suddenly this local store had them in stock again for 250 Euro + 5 for shipping, with case, battery, wallcharger and receiver.

It gets worse when you order more articles in one package, if only one of the articles cost more then the 'free of tax' limit, you pay taxes over all the articles. Pretty rude, specially because that money goes straight to government pockets, bunch of thieves.

Just had this thought that we should be careful ordering stuff from faraway and paying extra taxes. If an article turns out broken, probably the store will want to trade, but that tax money will be gone. So if you get send a replacement article you still need to pay taxes again.

Received the Taranis today. cheers

Too bad I can't use it with my Eachine though, unless I do some serious rewiring. At first sight it seems difficult because the Eachine doesn't have standard wiring. Wasn't planning on using the Taranis for my Eachine directly, but it would be nice to change the receiver at some point, so it would work.

Now looking on Banggood for parts for my 180 quad build. Already got the radio receiver and motors.

In the meantime I plan on using the Taranis to train in a simulator, FPVfreerider and LiftOff.
Tried some rate and acro flying a few days back, but it is quite tricky. Specially with too sensitve settings for the controls, like I had at that time.
Training in a simulator will save me from a lot of crashes and also help getting used to stickmovement. Flying without stabilisation is very different from flying with.

Have not tried it out yet, but it looks and feels awesome. At first I was a bit dissapointed with the bumps in the throttlestick. But it's not too annoying and I figured it could be usefull over time. Once you get to know the bumps, you can feel better how much throttle your at for certain moves etc. It is also usefull for holding throttle at a certain speed while doing yaw turns.

The Taranis came complete with receiver, neckstrap, wallcharger, battery and a case. Only thing missing are the cables to hook the receiver to the Eachine. Those cables usually come with the flightcontroller, but the cables present on the Eachine are specially designed for use with the Eachine250 receiver.

It's a bit difficult to see, but to connect the FC to the radioreceiver they used some sort of extension block, which can't be used on the receiver that came with the Taranis.



If I decide to build another receiver on the Eachine250 so I can fly it with the Taranis, I must not forget to buy the correct cables along with it.
