Yes, one ring to rule them all!
And for you people who have not seen Lord of the Rings, one transmitter to control them all.
What the heck am I talking about?
I'm talking about taking your hobby and love for toy grade multirotors to the next level: Modded Devo transmitters with Deviation Firmware installed.
I was blown away by how much of a difference the gimbals and resolution on the sticks of a transmitter could make. And I am also amazed at how crappy and full of deadspots the stock transmitters of these toy quads are. Made me realize that these companies either are only concerned about getting their products out with the least expense to the company as possible or they just don't care!
Or maybe they are truly ignorant as I have learned of a good name in toy quads turning out to just be a company that produces plastics, oblivious to giving just one damn about quads!
Enough about that, let's get to the goodness..
A modded Devo with Deviation Firmware is the best thing that could have happened for us frequent flyers! In case you're new to this, a modded Devo transmitter with Deviation Firmware installed allows us to fly many different protocols with the one transmitter!
All the Devo transmitters have great feeling, customize-able gimbals in the sticks, in which the tension is adjustable, even able to be made to self center. The resolution on these Devo transmitters is unmatched in my humble opinion and having that more precise control makes these toy quads fly like a million bucks!
And it doesn't stop there, Deviation actually increases rates on most protocols giving more pitch, roll and yaw! Flying with a Devo even dramatically increases the control distance or range of these toy quads as well.
Getting a Devo modded requires a little soldering but more than makes up for the trouble. I'm talking to you guys that are deep in already.. watching Flyin'Ryan RC and Quadcopter 101 to see what's new.. with more than five toy grade multirotors and planning to get more.. and transmitters from different models piling up in your house...
Get serious about flying! Get better control of your quads! Get a modded Devo!
One ring to rule them all!
