... but I have some photo's 😜

I did discover that the 4 in 1 esc is rotated 90° from the v1. Pictured is my broken 125 but it was identical inside to the 115.

I didn't want to pull the 115v2 apart again to take the photo but you can see the change up I'm finding here. Did they do the dsame to the 125v2 ?

This should sorta explain why my cool little cinaMod was simply a version behind... yoink.

Well bugger.. that IS a shame then yes... back to the drawing board 😉 

I flew my ET125 v2 on 3S for the first time today by the way (it's rated for 2S)..
Nooooo problems what so ever 🙂

Picked up a new camera today.

I decided to follow your lead and upgrade the camera on this little quad

GOOD for you 🙂  you'll like the quad more..

I have sold my old v1 ET115 last week by the way.. I kinda had 2 ET's to have a spare.. Turned out that's not needed 😋 
and: I got 3 new quads in last week.. ohw AND I'm planning 2 more builds :$

A sad story and not one I am proud to be part of. My 115v1 was last seen headed into a snow storm because some clown thought it would be cool to fly in snow.... 'cuz I seen others do it. 😋

So yes,  I lifted off from within the garage and darted for the open door never to be seen again.

The rest of the story is on video.

Unsettled right ?

One weak spot I want to fix is a better approach to a battery strap. The big rubber band strap will still let a battery pop out on an awkward hit. Once that happens I lose all rf signaling and a buzzer .... go fish.

I dread that happening over the tail grass right now. I would need a metal detector to find it out there.

Okay the finish result and yeah... I'm happy with it.

I could not find a way to plant the runcam Robin inside the newer v2 canopy by cutting away at the canopy .. it just doesn't fit.  I went back to the v1 version canopy and thank you.  All the holes still line up right, poked the buzzer out the battery slot and left the led to shine inside the canopy.

It looks a little too Mr.Clean to my eye right now but eh ... It feels so much more exciting to fly when I can relax and see what the camera is shining at. I need to squish out a little RFI and that will be just some fiddling around with it things. I only see a sparkle and roll when I punch it or run the throttle hard. Otherwise ...

Excellent tip Mr. Dutch and thank you. This was definitely worth that little bit of effort.

I guess I was lucky to be in the midst of testing that nano camera 🙂 
what about that ET Max by the way?? Haven't pulled the trigger myself yet (which makes it kinda to late :$)

Yes and isn't that cool.  I would trim it to run with the prop guards off if I did get one. On a 4s 1000 battery it should feel real sweet.

Soo... do we wait for the V2 ?

it's a bit of a nothing size for one.. it's not small but won't be a hardcore performer eighter 😋 
AND if you remove the prop guards the thing doesn't really make sense anymore I think 🙂

... and you're right.  😋

There's also a v3 115 too. Madness isn't it ?

I'm happy with what i have right now and plan to build another 250 5" over the summer months.  Tinker at it with parts that I already have.

Ohwwww yeah.. the V3 some sales sites have.. Is that actually a thing? 
Looks a bit like me posting about an airplane that doesn't exist 😋

Yeah.. I'm happy with the V2 as well.. I've been running my ET125 for weeks on 3S by now (it's rated for 2S)
