Hello my fellow YOUTUBE Peeps….
Enjoying the beginning of Spring…. Hucking the Geprc GEP-CX Cygnet 145mm 3 Inch PnP that I bought recently from Gearbest.
Flight from today…. The wind was 25mph with temps at 55 deg F.
This guy needs a bit of tuning (you can see her shaking in flight due to heavy wind) but did pretty well in the wind once I increased i-term heavily. I was flying a RDQ 850maH 4S pack and I added TBS Crossfire.
You can see she was flying nicely when she had a desync that knocked her out. Bummer…. Brand new and now I need to sort this out. Overall I think I will like this little quad (RIGHT NOW VERY DISAPPOINTED).
** UPDATE 4/21 – I have now found either the MOTOR or ESC has failed. Right Rear Motor/esc failed mid flight shown in video – Now it will not even spin UP.
**UPDATE 4/22 – I desoldered the right rear motor and soldered on a TEST motor to see if motor or ESC was bad….. luckily it is the motor. The ESC works and spins up the test motor no issue, so I just need to get a replacement motor. Easy fix. Waiting to see of GEARBEST or GEPRC will step and make this right (Otherwise I will just order one and fix it).
** 4/21 I now will contact GEARBEST and see what they can do.
**4/22 I contacted GEPRC also to see if they respond.
SO FAR – I CANNOT RECOMMEND THIS QUAD…. Very Expensive and quality is questionable. FAILURE on FLIGHT #2. Not a Good representation from GEPRC products. I know others have had good luck…so I know bad quality is a NORM.
Thanks for stopping by and checking it out.
