Reaper 330mm Quad Build!

Here we go again! From my MiniWasp 240mm chassis kit to this Reaper 330mm chassis kit! This should make for some really fun testing! Same exact universal design as my MiniWasp just in 330 size goodness! Let the building begin!

Still waiting on blades for this! Originally ordered from a HK store that mucked up my order, and refunded me after wasting 2 weeks of time doing nothing. Went with a much more reliable source, and blades should be in anytime now.

Aside from an issue with the throttle making it climb or fall, but not hover, it flies great! Been trying to get a stable hover for hours now with zero success, and now I'm calling it a night before the angry me comes out to fix it! lol. Might get some video up tomorrow whether it's fixed or not!

Maybe try to set a throttle curve the is flatter near where it takes off and turning the total throttle output down. May have already tried that but thought I would throw it out there. I have been stuck and overlooked simple solutions in the past. Looking forward to some videos
