WOW.. Mike.. I LOVE hearing when dealers do the right thing.! Good going.!

Mike

Hi Bo,

Just a quick follow-up to my earlier post... I took your advice and contacted the Dealer/Wholesaler out of China that I purchased my Scout X4 from, and to my surprise/delight, they are going to send me a free replacement Servo part.

Thanks for your help,
Mike

Tom

Hi Bo,

Tom

Bo Lorentzen

Hey Tom, not entirely sure if WalkeraHelicopterSupply ships internationally, i would say Im 99% sure they do. if not shoot a email to Frank at CarolinaDronz.com he is incredible good at supporting multirotor users around the world.

Hi Bo,

the supplyer you mentiont,WalkeraHelicopterSupply.com,
do they shipments overseas?

i need some part for the tali and if i want to order them in the netherlands they ask loads for it..double prices....

regards,

Tom

Mike

Thanks Bo for the info. I will put this repair project on my to do list so it is ready for spring flying... It's been a long winter, and I can't wait to get out flying!

Cheers,
Mike

Hey Mike, I generally get my parts from WalkeraHelicopterSupply.com in Seattle, Dave stock virtually every bit of Walkera parts.

You don't need any extra parts, its a 5 minute job to swap the servo on the end of the retract leg.

Mike

Thanks Bo, I'm afraid I probably won't have any luck from the dealer as I bought the quad new but from a China dealer, so I suspect there is no warranty for a bad servo.

If the Retract Servo is burnt, Is this the part below that I would need to order and install myself?

Would I need any other parts or it is simply a change/swap out of that part?

Thanks in advance for your help,
Mike

Bo Lorentzen

Hey Mike, sorry for the slow reply.
Check with the dealer, its fairly common for the TALI to burn the retract servo, they should get you a fresh serve :-)

Bo Lorentzen

Hey David, unfortunately the TALI is not powerful enough to fly a parachute system.

David Krassoff

Anybody know where to buy the parachute for the walkera tali h500 ?

Tom

Thank you Bo for the information!.

I'm thinking of the immersion Ezosd and the 600mW 5.8tx.
it's somewhat cheaper then the 350pro and the voyager ;-)

i keep you informed about my experiences with the new toy's from emmersion;-)

safe flights.

best regards,
Tom

Bo Lorentzen

Tom, that is a great question. :-)
Unfortunately the "sensor view" is ONLY available on the F12e screen. that is a huge mistake on Walkera's part.
The good news is that the new 350pro and the Voyager3 both have in-video OSD display. (bad news is that it don't help you.)
As you know I fly extensively FPV / goggles with my TALI, the way I do it is by setting my F12e to 21.6v warning level so my radio start vibrating when the battery get to 21.6v then i have plenty time to land.

Tom

Hi Bo,

thanx for the quick response!

but.. i mean, can i get the also the sensorview on my goggles from the f12e?

i have the 5803tx installed and that works fine but without the so needed sensorview..

thanx.

regards

Tom

Bo Lorentzen

Hey Tom, yes you can do that.. but I would suggest using the 5.8rx on the goggles instead of tempting faith with the powered mini-jack on the F12e :-)

Tom

Hi Bo,

is there a possibillity to get the telemetry from the f12e tx to my fatshark teleporter v4 with the vid out of the tx by cable?

regards,

Tom

Mike

Hi Bo,

The left landing gear (as you face the battery pack) on my Scout x4 won't retract anymore. I tested it just before my flight today and both sides worked great, and there was no crash or anything like that, and when I went to use it in the field the left side just stopped working and won't retract/move anymore and now only the right side retracts... The quad is fairly new and I have only used this landing gear retract feature maybe 4 times at most, (so I don't think it is burnt out?).

Any thoughts on what might be wrong and how to fix it?

Thanks,
Mike

Bo Lorentzen

Hey Chris, sounds to me like the throttle trim is all the way up.?

Chris

I just purchased the Walkera Tali H500 System. I have been simply trying to get the Controller flight ready!... and somehow the "throttle" stick is reading 50% on start up??? It shows me a WARNING about the 50% throttle as soon as I turn the controller on? Is there a "default-reset" button I can push and start the menu start up from scratch? Or, is there away to get the throttle off the 50% reading?

Bo Lorentzen

Not sure what is going on with that TALI. :-)
However I know for sure that its not supposed to be dropping out of the sky when you fly it. :-)
Do me a favor and post the question on our Walkera Owners support group here

Hi Bo,

Drone flipped over on first flight, damaged one motor, put in motor and still not working. sent it back to place where I bought it. They fixed the speed control and sent it back to me. Excited, first flight did a slow circle at 20 feet, drone suddently dropped from the sky, I throttled it up all the way but no respond, drone hit the ground and bounced up and fly again as normal. I then tried the circle again and same thing happened again. This time both of my landing gear broke. Any advice because I really want to keep the Tali. You think I got a defective one?

Bo Lorentzen

I have not tried that cable, I use the GoPro to FatShark cable from readymadeRC.com

Andrew

Hey there, Looking to swap out the ilook for gopro hero 4 silver. I have already purchased the ImmersionRC transmitter my question is if the Hooshion® Tarot TL68A10 Gopro Hero3 AV Video Cable for T-2D Gimbal Camera Mount FPV PTZ found at this link will work for the g-3d gimbal and hero 4 silver camera. If not which cable would replace this one? Your help is greatly appreciated. I've watched your unboxing of the walkera tali h500 5x's already haha.

Hope to hear from you soon!

Bo Lorentzen

You need to turn on the video background. ;-) and then turn on the sensor view.. RTFM ;-)

Also check the TALI h500 owners group on Facebook, I have pasted the url into probably half the messages here. :-)

Dave

Hi I am getting a no image message on my devo f12e from the ilook camera on my tali h500 any ideas would be grately received as its really annoying me now
