a couple of month ago, i wrote a little bit about an octo with FCP centerplates.
after having many issues trying to flash my esc, i ordered a set of 25A at Paul' s shop.
Those are allready flashed with the simonK firmware, and are compatible with the MT 3506
OctoflatX, FCP centerplate, 16x1 alumium booms, MT3506-25 650 kV,12x4,5 props, SimonK 25A esc, 2x 3s 2100mAh flyduino, Divide E Impera V2, BMA020, ITG3200 MultiWii_dev_20120622 .
2950g with gimbal still empty... that's an octofat...
the first part of the job is done now, maiden flight was this evening
fly' s with basic setup, only P on 7, I on 0.040, and rc rate on 2.
have to tune this a bit more, but that' s ok so far.
