Hey there guys ! Thats my first post and I always wanted to be part of a community for RC in general and this I think is the perfect for me!
My name is Thiago Neves, I live in Canada and I am new to this Quad adventure. I am a beginner as well on RC's so I dont understand technical terms ... and I dont know how to fly the quad facing me ... lol
Ok I have a GAUI 500X and I extended the booms so I kind of made a different quad.
Motors: 4x GAUI GUEC GM-412 Brushless (960Kv)
ESC's: Hobbywing Flyfun 30A - Brushless Speed Controller 2-4S Lipo BEC 5V@2A
2 Thunderpower RC batteries 2650mAh 3-cell/3S 45C 11.1 v (model# TP2650-3SP45)
4x 10X4.5 propellers
Transmitter: Spektrum DX 7
Stabilizer: FY-91Q with GPS&Compass
Telemetry : TM1000 with Altimeter, Battery Volt, Temperature and Transmitter Voltage with the Iphone device that reads the infos
FPV: 5.8GHz 600mW Immersion RC (Audio and Video Transmitter) FatShark Goggles.
A small camera to use for FPV and a GoPro under to record movies and take pictures.
I really would like to get into something like Aerial Videos, Aerial Photography covering events, shows, taking pics for real states ..., I would like to make some money off of that ...
Does anybody know what could I do?
Now I have a few questions:
1- Are the ESC's good for the motors I have ?
2- Are the batteries the ones I really need? I know there is a math I have to do to find out whats the perfect battery for me, I am a newbie so I have no clue how to do that ...
3- Im having a hard time to make the FY 91Q to be stable, Ive read the manual so many times and couldnt understand it ... the 3 way switch on my transmitter, I set up: UP (Hovering) - NEUTRAL (Free to fly) - DOWN (Return to home)
It never hovers steady and RTH... Whats that ? lol ... When Im descending, the quad shakes A LOT!!! Not good for when Im making videos... I probably need to take it to somebody that understand that on GTA Ontario, but because FY91Q is quite new, I havent heard about ppl that are Pro on those ...
4- For the Telemetry, when I set up for the Iphone (telemetry display) to let me know when is good to land because the batteries are about to die, whats the LOW and HIGH Voltage I should set and Whats Low and High Alarms ?
5- Same as 4 but for the receiver What would be the low voltage, high voltage, high alarm and low alarm ?
6- Same as 4 but for the Temperature, where should I put the wire that gets the temperature? I put on the ESC #1 that is the only one that gets hot, but I dont know whats a good temp, bad and alarm for the telemetry.
7- FPV, The transmitter says the range is 2 km, sometimes the image flickers when the quad is in front of me... so I cant rely on it, I ve seen a video the guy flies a quad the goes behind the house, between the trees and he doesnt loose his signal ... I know he has an white antenna on the floor, what are those? Do I really need them ?
8- Whats the radio regulations for Canada for FPV? Where would I go to get a license (if needed) ?
9- I dont feel confortable flying on water or on top of people (I know its not a good idea), I start shaking (lol) and I dont rely at all on the quad, as I already had a few previously crashes out of nowhere ...
Ok, I know its a big questionnaire, Im sorry if I offended someone with my newbies questions, I always wanted to ask somebody those questions and when I go to hobby stores I few that people are busy so I few bad asking those questions...
I will be really thankfull for the ones that try to help !
I was willing to even buy a new quad or octo (fully working) so I can "work" with my pics and videos...
PS.: Here is a couple of photos of my quad
