Since, according to this weeks' podcast, you have more time on your hands than you know what to do with, how about showing us how to put the Jeti sticks on our Taranis? Maybe when you are taking breaks from knife-making and whatever other totally unimportant things you are doing? :P

Hah, funny!

I actually did research it a bit. Not only are the Jeti sticks $210 each (or 'only' $130 for the plastic version), from what I've read there is no way to interface the hall-effect sensors into the Taranis (designed for potentiometers).

Rats. Hoping for a "common output." Maybe someday a hacker will figure out the code.

Thanks

Goblin 380 is such a tempting little beast. But I totally agree it can't hold a candle to something in the 500mm range in terms of practice given you don't have space constraints.

The thing that gets me on it is the ease of repair. If I _have_ to fly a 380mm machine, the idea of a low parts count heli is a great one.

Other new 360mm heli's on the horizon too, so I will probably just pass this one up.

Don't act all confused. We know you have all the inside info. :D

Chris you got me thinking. With a 3d printer couldn't one print a new faceplate for the Taranis that would angle the sticks and move the screen to the top? Hmm

Mike

If you had the 3D design skills yes that is totally possible to do!!

The only drawback i can see is the finishing to get a nice smooth surface.
I know there are acetone vapor baths etc but i think you will have to resort to good old fashioned sanding, filling , sanding, filling..........

To really do it affordably though, you'd have to split it up into sections that could be joined after printing. Most of the "affordable" 3D printers don't have a big enough print area to do it as one piece.
