i like zap products. zap ca added to baking soda is awesome. zappagap is great too. dip the dry ends in baking soda so the powder fills cracks and splits. carefully press the parts together while pressing out excess baking soda. once you like the fit... hold it tight and apply zap ca. sets quick so be sure.. let it cure for several hours. that should hold though its seldom pretty.
old trick from plank flying days. i think it acts differently than plain "super glue" zapglue | CYANOACRYLATES (CA's)
ok i hit it with jb weld last night. still a little gooey today ill try it tomorrow. so im a new pilot. i think i been kinda nervous about taking it up and going at it. but then i realized today i just need to go for it and give it a good rip and take it up...am i on the right track???
Hey all, had a second question on the same build. I am also new to this and the tyro99 was my first DIY.
Tx- flysky FS-i6
I am having issues with the configuration and I'm not sure where the issue lies (tx/rx or betaflight). When I connect to betaflight, everything functions and displays on the screen correctly. Receiver indicates transmitter is working, and motors work fine (now 'worked' one does not work properly now). But when I disconnect and try using the transmitter, the quad does not seem to want to balance or even spin all of the motors at the same speed.
I do not have anyone that shares this hobby that I know of and local hobby shop is crap for knowledge and just wants money.
I am super enthused by this hobby but i am getting frustrated by not being able to get off the ground due to lack of knowledge.
Hey @Nlake13, welcome to the forum!
There is not enough info in your description to be able to say much about what might be happening. I will point to a few things in your post though...
If the motors (without props on!) do not spin up properly in the Motors tab of Betaflight, then there is likely a problem that will keep you from flying successfully.
There are 3 flight modes and the default "acro" mode does not level itself, are you sure you have set it up to be in "angle" or "horizon" mode which do try to level itself?
You will need all 4 motors working to fly, and the motors will all spin at different speeds when flying, that is how it works, if one side is lower than the other those motors will spin faster to try and compensate so that is likely not your issue. There is also a thing called "air mode" where the motors will spin up faster even without throttle input, so air mode may be on also.
You may want to create a Youtube account, take a short video of each of the motors spinning (only to about half throttle, it is not a great idea to spin them any faster) and upload it to youtube and then post the link here so we can go watch it.
There is a lot to this hobby knowledge wise that you will need to understand to get things right, we can try to help but will need more info than you have provided in your post. If one of the motors no longer works correctly it is likely the 4in1 ESC is damaged, the video will help us to help you. I would guess that Betaflight configuration is 99% of your problems but that one motor is probably a hardware issue.
