Hi lovegroove... thanks for the forum post!

Well... I'm a noob! Lol!

Just ordered a standard (cheap lol ) Bumblebee kit from HK, including:

- Bumblebee Carbon Fiber QuadFrame 550m + tail landing skids + dome ;
- 4 x 35mm brushless motors (930 Kv each) - propellers included ;
- 4 x HobbyKing 30A BlueSeries Brushless Speed Controllers ;
- 1 x HobbyKing Multi-Rotor Control Board V3.0 (Atmega328) ;
- 1 x Hobby King Quadcopter Power Distribution Board ;
- 1 x Turnigy nano-tech 3000mah 3S 25~50C Lipo Pack + charger / balancer ;
- 1 x Camera Gimbal Tilt Mount for Quad Bumblebee ;

Plus of course the 2.4Ghz 6Ch Tx & Rx ...

I've been waiting for my parcel, and of course reading a lot. Questions:

- is the KK Xkopter v4.7X firmware compatible with the HKing Board V3.0 (Atmega328) ? Just flash and go?

- what's the estimated (or how to calculate that) time of flight in minutes with my equipment assembled? The quad will fly with a Drift HD 1080p camera (139 grams) attached to it's Gimbal Tilt Mount.

- what's the difference between the configurations X and + ?

- any extra tips for a novice (never assembled a quad before, just small planes) ?


Thanks a lot in advance!
