DonKracho Watchout for the CAM connection. It provides 10V. The Caddx EOS will shut down at 10V (gray image). Remove the red wire from the connector and put it on a 5V rail and everythng is fine. looks like Eachine has not tested this before delivery:(

I recommend to open the base before assembling the prinder to check for transportation damages. For me the LCD was diconnected and the stepper corner brackets were bent. The assembling is not done in 10 minutes but it is straigt forward an not a lot you can do wrong. The hardware and quality issues claimed about some youtube reviwes have been solved with the printer I got. After checking the base unit switch it on before assembling. You may be shocked by the chassis fan. It is extremly noisy and screams like a turbine! Anet, why not using a larger fan with less rpm? There is enough space left. I removed the fan and did mount a regulated 50mm fan directly under the control board that it blows on the heat sinks. A 60x60x10mm may fit too. With this modification it became the quitest 3D printer I own. Out of the box my Anet A4 was almost unusable due to wrong delta geometry parameters in the original firmware! The EEPROM is disabled and there is no delta calibration available at all. There seem to be manufacturing tolerances. The bed of my Anet A4 is absolutely plain even if heated up, but after adjusting the center z0 hight the nozzle will crash into the bed by at least 0.6mm(!) when traveling to the outer regions. No chance to adjust this with the bed leveling screws. Therefore I could print small parts up to 60mm diameter only. Also there was no Menu option to do an emergency stop of a failing print. The hotend is a standard Anet one and it does its job. But it is not the best construction out there and it may get hard to change filament. The position of the micro SD card slot is anoying. I did manage to flash a Mailin 1.1.8. firmware with the help of https://github.com/langi4888/aneta4config With this firmware you can store all the settings like you want them to be. For my opinion it is a mandatory upgrade. You are able to do all the fine tuning after upgrading the firmware and RepetierHost shows up all these EEPROM parameters. Because you have to deal with firmware upgrades and Atmel programming I can not recommend this printer to someone who is not familar to this stuff. It's a pitty that Anet uses but hides the native marlin code and still does not commit to the open source idea. They do not even care about their serious firmware issues. The hardware of this delta printer is really nice in relation to the price and much more stable than of other deltas in this price range. I'm quite happy with the print results. For about 160€ you get a lot of 3D printer for he money, but you have to do some modifications as mentioned above. The perfect bed leveling and calibrating the delta geometry is a hard and time consuming piece of work, but after done you will never have to touch it again.

DonKracho Now I could update to betaflight_3.2.1_REVO.hex. The trick is to set it to DFU mode first by entering the CLI commanf line 'dfu'. After that you can upload the firmware via the betatflight flasher.

DonKracho Connect it to the UART dedicated for DSMXIn Betaflight CLI enter:set spektrum_sat_bind=9set spektrum_sat_bind_autoreset=0 (This is important, otherwise the save cmmand will immediately reset the bind mode)savePower cycle and bind to transmitterMeaning of the spectrum bind modes:3 for DSM2 1024bit/22ms5 for DSM2 2048bit/11ms default AlienWii327 for DSMX 1024bit/22ms used by Devo 7e8 for DSMX 2048bit/22ms Used by new DXe9 for DSMX 2048bit/11ms
