For anyone looking to take this on and use the R9 module: Ive set this up with a quad and its a bit of a faff for a first time user especially if you have never used a Taranis before. Also Im using an F4 Mamba stack which caused additional headaches as i wanted to use F-port protocol using an R9mm receiver. so for anyone in my position here are some really helpful links. setting up radio: Setting up R9mm module with F-port: https://oscarliang.com/setup-frsky-fport/ Also i used this for the Mamba configuration with the f-port inverted going to TX3 https://intofpv.com/t-frsky-q-x7s-r9m-r9mm-sbus-problems All working now with telemetry thanks to all the above for their contributions as well.

Super.Noob

Come with control horns n wire to connect with servo. Just need all the electronic ie 2x 9g servos, motor, ESC, battery n your own transmitted/receiver etc. I'm keeping an eye out for them. So will post if anything good come up.

aerotec

Does it come with the control horns and wire or is it just the raw airframe?

Lancman

My collection also arrived today in a huge box like that. Luckily I managed to get everything out of sight before Mrs Lancman got home. (y) Unfortunately no assembly instructions supplied with any of the jets, but it all looks fairly straightforward so I think I should be able to figure it out. Amazing VFM.

Oooh look what's waiting for me when I get home! :D

I've been watching this product and it has always been around £104 for the ready to run version. Price varies by under £1 due to USD exchange rate. Occasionally some items go on sale but that's clearly shown as a reduction in price.

babylon

The price of this and most stuff varies on a day to day basis at HobbyKing,It could be 100 quid on Tuesday, Then find its 50 quid on Wednesday for no real reason other than some algorithms going on somewhere.

Bullfrog

You may drink your weak lemon drink now, or save it for later.

aerotec

Reviews seem to be ok for it but guess driving it full speed in to a wall, as one reviewer did, isn't the brightest thing to do. :/ Other HK stuff has been OK but agree it's not Traxxas etc quality so check all screws tight, gear mesh OK etc before first run.

Completely agree but my last deal from them got removed.

Chris0609

Why should this be taken down: Hobbyking is a big company doing a lot of business in the UK.I have a few things I dont like about them but no company is perfect. This is a good deal to the extent I have bought one when I did not need another plane!!

LandOfConfusion

They haven't in the past and I hope they don't now as this is actually a really good deal. As for the ESC, there have been some reports of issues but that said, the 3rd party reviews look good and anyway, if you're going to overprop or run 4S when 3S is indicated then a better ESC is always a good idea.

john184

Yes, waste of time posting on HUKD. Unless they get paid with an affiliate link it will get taken down.

stuellis

I always dismissed this model, anyone tried it? My issue is the claimed 1900g thrust on a AUW model of 1500g is not going to give 3D performance. With no mention in the spec of 4S I had doubts the ESC would be up to it. FYI good luck with the mods here, last deal I posted from HobbyKing got taken down as they could not verify the seller.

Isn't the android build on these chinese?

DVS_Dee

If you run android on it you can power it by mini usb, for linux you need to use the barrel connector.

Christopher_Davies

That would explain it then and I meant psp in my previous post.

mahmouddiaa

I think these can only be powered via the barrel connector not usb

Well I'll be if anyone has the same issue where the board is seemingly dead the thing can take a osp charge cable mine now works so the mini USB must be at fault I can live with that.

Good price for a Tamiya kit, but you do need to buy the ESC separately as well as the radio kit.
WIGTYPE

£69.88 was the price I paid including 1 day shipping. Mine came today - it is the full boxed kit. It even included the ESC which the description said was not included. Bonus :-)

Pacman786

£61.25 at the moment. Good price.

jamesbeer752

If you read the description it says it is included, and if you look at the required items it's not mentioned, normally that's there because they use one set of photos for several different lots

foxyloxy

One of the pictures on their website for this kit says "car chassis not included"

It will only connect to "drones" that have 5.8Ghz FPV transmitters on them. Most things nowadays use 5.8.

Agreed, I paid way to much. The first "too much" was when I hit the "go to basket", and I had a choice: Abandon or cough up. I chose the latter. The later stings came while I was over a barrel: pay (for further charges), pay to return (stuff still in transit) or abandon and lose the money already paid. Of course, if I at any point knew what was ahead, I would have abandoned the transaction and cut my losses... But I did not know what was lying ahead. That's what I'm warning against...

mickrick

You actually chose to pay two hundred quid for postage? And why were you charged another hundred for import duty? Electronic devices are duty free, you just pay vat on the purchase. So to pay vat of £100 at the standard 20% rate your total purchase would need to have been £500. If you only paid vat on the item and not on shipping charges, then the item would have to have cost £500, so you paid £800 in total. If you paid vat on the total purchase including delivery, this would've made the item £300. To have paid that amount of money you must've been getting a really good deal, like a phantom 4 comparable drone. Otherwise, as we say in God's country, your head's cut.

leegp79

That sounds like a bit of cock up there. Also its not completely there fault. That's the uk customs for you. I heard royal mail charging you around £8 for deliveries, but never that much

AlfMac

I've been stung by Hobby King in the past: Spent hours selecting the full kit list (many out of stock, many only in CN warehouse), and eventually thought I'm ordering from the EU... yet after paying >£100 in shipping fees, I got notified that it was delivered in the EU and I had to pay another £100 for delivery in the UK. (The alternative was to pay £100 to return it to CN, or loose the order worth more than £100.) Then, after paying that, I received another £100+ import charge, so all in all I paid more than £300 more than expected when I first hit the "checkout" button. So - I might buy from them again, but not without spending a lot of effort reading all the fine print at the time of ordering, and being prepared to be stung again. Not voting either way, as the deals can be good, but just be aware.

barrel24

Not bad. All the decent kits are on backorder but good to buy if anyone wants to build their first quad as cheaper to crash etc (buy a few frames)
