the problem is that I really don't need a screen, or zoom, or even a case. I just need a quality sensor with a normal lens, a shutter button and a microSD card.

I guess if I can't get that, I'll...

Looking for a good quality camera

I'm trying to do mapping with my UAV, and my 808 keychain camera just doesn't have the quality. Basically I'm pulling frames out of the video and stiching them together with a panorama program.

They already replaced it for free once. It was a while ago but they sent me the same plastic housing motor. The new one now has a hairline crack.

Drop-in replacement for e-flite apprentice motor?

I want to replace the apprentice's motor with one that has a metal housing.
The e-flite power 15 looks good and is a drop-in replacement, but it requires a bigger ESC than the 30A stock one. I can't...

Autonomy isn't out of AMA guidelines, as long as you can regain manual control.

Budget for airframe, servos and power system will be around $400-600.

Micro mosquito is garbage.

Well, I'm done repairing this thing. No more. It's been wrecked several times by its habit of going into a spin that takes 30+ feet to recover from, out of a relatively gentile turn. This flying...

It's a much higher-quality cell that doesn't have that much more capacity. I'm guessing it's the same weight and hardly any bigger.

Yes, you can do very well with this heli as a new pilot.

However, batteries with velcro on them (required for champ) will not fit in the MSR.

No. It's negligible and doesn't weigh significantly more. The flybar is much, much worse.

Yeah the SE version's ball links are probably 50% longer, and the bearing is a lot better.
It speeds up response. A lot.

I am no longer of the opinion that the carbon flybar is worth a damn. It slows down response, is heavier (shorter flight times), the ball links fall off, and it costs $30.

However, the blade...

Broke the blade grips in a bad crash today. Went out and bought the microheli aluminum ones.

Now it has massive TME. It wobbles/shakes like nuts.

Velcro batteries are annoying

I hate velcro batteries. They don't work in my mSR, the velcro wears out, and they're not as secure as the mSR's battery holder.

Well, took some 1500 grit sandpaper and took it to the balls on the flybar and blade grips. Just did a little bit.
Then put silicone spray on them.

TBE is mostly gone.

I had an MSR a long time ago, that I had a lot of fun with and then sold.
Now, I just bought a brand new one and immediately upgraded it with a microheli aluminum and carbon flybar.
