Apps gone Wingsland S6

Just a small update for the ole Wingsland S6.

It seems the wingsland app has now been removed from the apple store and the android store.

Seems like its the end of the road for this great looking but very flawed quad.

You can find the old Android app on some other backup sites around on web, and I have a few of them in the download area of wingsland on here.

Also I see places like Banggood no longer selling it and getting a new battery probably almost impossible now, along with original props etc.

These days you can pick up a cheap DJI mavic mini cheap or pay a bit more for the mini 2 and those are a far better bet in 2022 for a small quad, or one can also pick up a old DJI Spark for really cheap these days (Just make sure you get one with 3 batteries as the batteries areĀ  getting hard to get hold of at a decent price.)

Obviously the DJI Spark is over 250 grams, but then so was the Wingsland S6 and the Spark also only has a 1080p camera.

DJI Mavic Mini 2 latest firmware

DJI has released its latest firmware update (v01.04.0000) for the mini 2 quad and BEWARE , as the latest version has anti rollback enabled!

That means you wont be able to downgrade the firmware to any earlier versions and I would guess this was done to stop some of the hacks available, although update states

the update was for safety šŸ˜‰

Have fun

Faulty DJI Osmo Plus

Got hold of a DJI Osmo plus off ebay, was supposed to be working but on turn on the Yaw axis smashes full left and right and then whole gimbal goes limp with bleeping

 

 

, but theĀ camera itself works fine in the app.

The chip I am interested in first , is the one that senses what position the motor is in,

which on this model is a BCG 316BCG.

There is a small magnet positional nut under the board which I suspect the chip senses what position its in.

Because mine smashes left and right, I assume either chip is faulty or data from or to chip.

Looking at the chip it looks suspect?

Below is a photo from the second board in gimbal which uses same board

and which is working fine on tilt axis of camera.

Although looking at both boards, does seem these chips were added after the other chips etc

Because of the extra flux. Maybe they all done like this or these boards were refurbished ?

They are easy to get from china, but I think this chip has a eeprom inside and hence may well be programmed at DJI to the camera. So fitting a new one may well prove a waste, but they are cheap so might as well try.

Cant get the whole driver board and even if one could, probably need to be matched to camera.

Probably easier to get a working one as price of these cheap now due to the Osmo pocket’s.

Anyway , another project waiting with other bits I am waiting on parts from China for.

Update:-

I fitted a new chip (BCG 316BCG) to the pcb and to be honest, although it stopped smashing the gimbal from side to side on power up, it now just jitters left and right a bit and stops with very hot yaw motor after a few goes.

Could be not correct chip or motor windings are toast.

Smashed DJI Mavic Mini 2

Just got hold of a crashed DJI Mavic mini 2.

Needs a bit of work after being crashed though.

The top and middle shell’s are cracked and the Flex cable that attaches the compass is ripped apart, so all manners of on screen errors.

The camera gimbal mounting rubbers are also ripped out.

Not checked the actual gimbal and camera yet, as waiting for a new flex cable to arrive from AliExpress.

Did have a look at repairing the flex cable, but the tracks are too small and risk of it breaking in flight or a short back to main board not worth the risk.

A needle in above photo to show how small and close these tracks were.

So just got to wait for AliExpress, which although they stock parts you cant get elsewhere they are always very slow.

Used JB Weld to glue back cracked apart middle and top shells until I get new ones for now.

So not much more I can do to this little quad until flex cable arrives from China.

Wingsland apps back in Apple store

Surprised to see Wingsland aps make a return to the app store after being missing in action for quite some time on IOS.

Also a update for the Wingsland S6 on IOS?

Seems to be just a updated certifcate for the app by Apple rather than from Wingsland themselves??

as the bits below that are from the last time it was updated…..

Either that or my iphone confused and its just exactly the same app from 3 years back.

Anyone else got a update flagged for there S6 on IOS?

 

edit**

I think this update is just directly done by Apple for old apps, as quite a few of my old apps are saying the same.
