Hi,
Are you able to advise the part number of the discrete gyro chips used on this quadrotor please ?
Also the make and part number of the main microcontroller ?
Nice review by the way.

Cheers ADI

I'm not sure of the gyros but (from memory) they're using the 8051 microcontroller.
RCModelReviews.com, just the facts.

Hi!

First message here. I take the occasion to thank you for your videos: they are one of the reasons that I finally convinced me to try and have a go with the r/c hobby! :D

I just started flying my T580, and in one not-so-soft landing one of the metal support of the landing gear got slightly bent inward.

It's not really a big deal, but I was wondering if I can try to re-straighten: it seems to be alluminium (witch I believe it's a kind of "soft" metal), but I don't know if I can just try to unbent it, or if that would mean an almost certain breaking.
Any advice?

Thanks!

I've done it a few times and got lucky, but the last time after the first charge one cell was practically dead and another showed 6.2V.. Straight on the concrete drive with that one...
