We may be seeing the end of Opentx.
Check out this long thread

Its about the new Frsky Tandem tx, but it covers Frsky
issues and reports that Ethos is a replacement for Opentx in Frsky txs which will
not be offered (initially? never?) on the new Tandem. Many Frsky owners
are expressing concern about the end of opentx in Frsky gear (including me).

On the Aloft forum (Aloft is the leading US Frsky dealer), there has been a long-running thread complaining about Frsky competitors like Jumper. For 9 months the  "humper and radiocopier" thread was dead, but now there is a full-on discussion of ethos, opentx and frsky. I suggest
start on post 151 on march 6.

It is looking like the end of opentx in frsky gear and the end of the ongoing  support and new features that I have liked. Frsky will become a high end tx like Spectrum or Jeti.

Maybe it makes an opportunity for other tx manufacturers to take the lead in opentx txs, although it seems frsky have poached the main opentx engineers to work on ethos.

Hi guys.

My girlfriend has come with me to the field 3 times, I am teaching her how to fly, we always use the buddy box. She would like to keep learning but I don't know if at this point this would require a new membership now.

Interesting example of an accidental midair that was filmed and analysed. Check out the
vid, and especially the discussion by davecee and SavageX89. It addresses the problem of assigning blame in a RC model midair. In this case there seems no clear way to attribute blame. I think that is the usual story, as its hard to anticipate the trajectory of nearby models when you are managing your own model.

Folks, moving away from flying for a while, so need to clear some stuff from the garage.  email me at robattard  at, if interested in any of the below.

I dont think there is anything super valuable, but I want to get a few bucks back in my pocket.

  • Spectrum DX7s   $70   couple of buttons sticky but otherwise works fine, good beginner kit, original packaging, will have an Orange receiver or two for it also.

  • Edge 540 1400mm, balsa frame foam covered, std size Metal gear servos, YEP BEC, 80amp ESC?, 52?? motor.  This is the pick, it's flown twice and not a scratch (as new).  It does fly really well, but is a bit under powered for aerobatics.  $130 (the electronics cost more than that). no receiver, or an orange receiver.

  • Extra 300 Balsa and film.  You may have probably seen me flying this, its a very good flyer, 3S flys ok or 4S for some good aero.  It has had a few dings, but repaired and still a very straight good looking flyer, I can find an orange receiver for it if you need. $100  (spare cowl and cockpit cover)

  • Hummer 3D foamy, flys ok, 3S good for 3D practice $50

  • I've got a box full of lipos, all of them are still ok (various), though havent been used in a while, held at storage charge, 3S and 4S,  1.5a, 2.2a, 3a, 5a.  Most are turnigy blue  $5 a piece

  • I've got  some boxes of extras like props, happy probably to give away to the buyers

  • A few of Orange DSX receivers and frsky, will probably keep a few of the frsky, but the orange (Spektrum DSM DSX) can go, also a 3-axis stabilising one good for trainer plane

  • Also got new unopened Tramp HV 5.8Ghz Video tx and a Foxeer Arrow mini FPV camera  $25 for both.
All dust on the planes is included for free!!
Email if anything interests you.

Hello members, I've decided to sell my DJI Phantom 3 Standard drone.
It comes with a carry bag, 4 batteries, spare set of props, camera filters, the controller is fitted with a tablet/large phone holder and 5dB antennea for longer range.

$500 for the lot.

I'm giving our club members first choice at this purchase if they want it, before I list it on other sites.

Regards Todd Hazell

This is a really cool system.
It works great with Ardupilot and if your a long way out flying FPV and suddenly your video dies
or you just loose orientation
you can just go into loiter or alt hold, Yaw around so you are pointing home, check your alt and fly it back just looking at your TX screen

It's pretty cool

It also allows you to log all the in flight data on your TX's SD card for easy analysis 

No to mention how handy all the voice alarms and info is I have a 3 position switch set up to tell me speed and alt. It's very handy
