Our purple mini that is used as a daily drive needs some serious attention now. Postponed it already for a few years but now foglight fell of it was a sign that something really needs to be done.
I bought this mini for my girlfriend as a surprise (she is driving mini’s since she met me). She was driving an 1000cc while she was used to drive a 1275cc tuned cooper, and she start to complain about the lack of power of her mini. When i stumbled at this 1275 injection mini in her favourite color purple and the price was very good, i bought it.
Now already 4 years later it is time to do some panel work. Starting with the rear and finishing at the front which will be replaced completely.
Someone who just started in this hobby asked my advice what to buy with a small budget. So when they finally received the goods they connected the lipo badly and released all the magic smoke out of the turnigy 9X.
I bought the DIY kit version and it arrived very quick.
I put a Zippy 3S 1000 next to it for a reference. It is a nice compact box, let’s see what’s in it.
Rudder is bad, so repair needed.
During taxiing on the runway the tailwheel came loose…
Let’s fix it!
Because The Mobius battery is to small for recording hours of fun I decided to power it by USB input.
But I don’t like the loose and fragile USB connector I decided to solder the wires direct internally.
The wires going to the ESC and connect to ground and 5v output.
So now the Mobius is charged during every flight and continues recording when disconnected / crash 😆
Because my Mobius is pretty beaten up, the USB port can only be used for charging.
So how to change settings?
1. Disconnect the camera from the PC and turn it off.
2. Press and Hold Down the Mode button. DO NOT RELEASE the button until step 4.
3. Press and Hold Down the Power button until the RED LED blinks 3 times and the camera turns off. This will take about 5 seconds. During the process, the blue and yellow LEDs may blink.
4. Release the Mode and Power buttons.
The SYSCFG.TXT file showing the camera’s current settings should now be in the memory card root folder. Now you can edit the SYSCFG.TXT file as indicated above, and load the new settings back into the camera by using exactly the same method as outlined in steps 1 through 4, above. Once completed, the “SYSCFG.TXT” file will be automatically deleted from the card’s root folder.
First start with updating and upgrading your OS => post
The use the following commands:
connmanctl> enable wifi
Likely it will say “Error wifi: Already enabled”
connmanctl> scan wifi
connmanctl> agent on
A list with available WiFi Networks will appear.
Use connect with the long string to the right of the network you’re trying to connect to – for example
connmanctl> connect wifi_………managed_psk
Use the tab to autocomplete, wifi_[TAB]
To find the MAC address of your Pi’s NetworkCard enter the following command:
:~$ cat /sys/class/net/eth0/address
:~$ sudo apt-get update
:~$ sudo apt-get upgrade
The plane was flying behind a tree and i expected to show up in a few seconds…
