HKPilot Mega Mini looks like a perfect tiny autopilot choice for a my favourite small quad setup with F330 frame. I have started to build one F330 frame with the larger HKPilot Mega V2.5, but now there is an even better choice.
Some of the stuff you are going to need for a nice F330 frame setup besides your choice of a flight controller (KK2.1 or HKPilot) is following: 4x PRODUCT ID: 9192000128-0 Afro ESC 12Amp Multi-rotor Motor Speed Controller (SimonK Firmware) (<-- WARNING: previous batches came with 3.5mm bullets attached, new ones with 2.0mm bullets) 4x PRODUCT ID: 9192000076 Turnigy Aerodrive SK3 2822-1275 Brushless Outrunner with Short Shaft (they come with 3.5mm bullets attached)
PRODUCT ID: 260000006 F330 Glass Fiber Mini Quadcopter Frame 330mm 1x PRODUCT ID: 258000011 10CM Male to Male Servo Lead (JR) 26AWG (10pcs/set) 1x PRODUCT ID: AM1001A PolyMax 3.5mm Gold Connectors 10 PAIRS (20PC) 1x PRODUCT ID: 9329000018 Slow Fly Electric Prop 8045SF (4 pc) 1x PRODUCT ID: 9329000019 Slow Fly Electric Prop 8045R SF (4 pc) 1x PRODUCT ID: 9329000020 Slow Fly Electric Prop 8045 SF (4 pc - Green) 1x PRODUCT ID: 9329000021 Slow Fly Electric Prop 8045R (4 pc - Green, RH Rotation)

HobbyKing just started selling "Mobius ActionCam a 1080p HD Video Camera Set With Live Video Out".
I just got one Mobius camera as an alternative to my GoProv3 and HoryzonHD 1080P FPV cams from Hobby King and if you want one too, then here is my BUDDY CODE to save you about 3 USD: C73AF010-99CF-424E-AB8C-11A5A9E8B2E3

I have not been active on this forum for ages and never bothered to blog, so why not a first entry.
I have a lot more toys (mostly in the form of parts ) than I have time for my toys. One of those, long overdue was a HobbyKing Pocket Quad kit. I finally got it set up and flying, using a normal PPM FrSky 4 channel V8R4-II RX and Turnigy 9XR radio with DJT module, flashed with er9x firmware.
Why this receiver? I only use Futaba FASST, TSLRS and FrSky DJT compatible stuff, thus DSM2 was useless to me and V8R4-II was the smallest one I had around (I also pondered about using PPM_SUM FrSky D4R-II, but its features and long antennas were way overkill for this tiny quad).
The really weird part was the channel assignment issue with my normal PPM RX that really baffled me. Thus (as I did not find clear use cases of V8R4-II or much of other normal PPM RX with this HK Pocket Quad), I am writing down my steps here for other to follow or to comment where I must have gone brain-dead before opting for my channel re-soldering hack.
I pretty much stared with RCGroups thread on HK Pocket Quad and followed the instructions of J.E.B in the first post with the difference that I used the latest Arduino and for MultiWii stuff I used the MultiWii_2_3_pocket.zip file from "goebish" blog. I just commented out the Spectrum DSM2 and SBUS crap as follows and used Arduino on Linux to compile and upload the code to the Pocket Quad:
