Thanks for the encouragement, Kev.
I've been lurking around a little and noticed you over here on this thread:
The new KK2 FC, info and Q&A... - http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1675613
And I have also been considering that controller. I'm kind of leaning towards a tri but may PM you before I nail it down. I was attracted to one the collapsable tricopters...
It's kind of funny if you know motors OK, everywhere you go on other forums there are people needing help with the basics on motors, aren't there?
