Ethos QX130 Quad

Post by Allan Patrick on Thu Dec 11, 2014 7:03 pm

Copy of an email I received from a friend earlier -



eyup,

hope you are enjoying the lovely weather...

Curious incident in the shop this week which I thought you might find of
interest. I had some new quadcopters arrive, the Ethos QX130, and had
been looking fwd to bombing shoppers with the bubble blowing machine.
However, the first one that I unpacked turned out to be unreliable, and
would inexplicably drop out of the air. I opened another, only to find
the same issue, which seemed to be exacerbated by selecting the highrate
mode. Weird.... Tried a few things, all to no avail - until I noticed
the FHSS logo on the Tx. A quick check with a WiFi analyser showed many
strongish WiFi networks about, and although I tried switching off my
3G-wifi modem (used for the credit card terminal), my laptop, phone,
printer - the problem still occurred. I'm guessing that the Ethos FHSS
just can't cope with the busy rf enviroment...bit of a shame that, as
it looks to be quite a fun quad - but it'll have to wait for outdoors
fun. Certainly have never had this issue with the Hubsan and Syma quads...

any thoughts?

Typical of the lower end multirotors

I love the accessories & the ability to auto flip & roll.

right out of the manual HERE

This model is controlled by a radio signal that is subject to possible interference from a variety of
sources outside your control. This interference can cause momentary loss of control so it is advisable
to always keep a safe distance from objects and people in all directions around your model as this will
help to avoid collisions and/or injury.

The Ethos seems to be the only "QUAD" that has a built in mechanical switch on the transmitter to enable switching operating mode from mode 1 to mode 2 and vica versa. Just in a few seconds.
A very neat and simple arrangement.
I haven't noticed any interference problems with mine.
