New Hexa

I just finished building a new (and) first Hexa for me.

The BL-Ctrl's are running v0.42 and the FC is at 0.82.

Since I had some Robby 2824-34's and a pile of EPP1045's I decide to use those just to get started.

One not to those using the Robby's. Make sure you use very shallow screws when mounting them. It is easy to screw into the power lead. You will know if you do that as the ESC won't power up completely and when you give it throttle, the ESC will go offline and the RED led will flash 10 times.

That being said, with the out of the box settings, she flies very well. Even without altitude hold, she hold her altitude much better than my quad. No Navi, GPS or Compass installed (yet).

All up weight with a 3S 4900maH Rhino battery is 1.7kg.

I am using Rusty's frame, landing gear and I2C isolator. Futaba 8FG and the OMM converter. I am also trying out Rusty's vibration motor mounts.
