IFLY-4 with C4E controller

It appears that the Ifly-4 is now shipping with the c4e controller, and better esc's.
It makes sense to me to start a new thread for this version, as the electronics for the original quad don't pertain to the c4e any longer!

The correct firmware come in the download section here: http://www.idea-fly.com/en/Download.asp?id=16

FW_IFLYTools1.6 For IFLYC4E------This is the correct download for the c4e controller. DO NOT use the installer for the C4.

As far as I know, which means nothing, if an ifly owner with the 4c controller buys the promised gps, the gps will come with the 4ce controller as well as a retrofit. But I don't know anything more, or for how long it will eligible for an upgrade.

No, I was surprised when I opend up my Ifly, and it had the c4e already in it (Phew!) Also the esc's are different than the other ones. I LOVE this thing. I have replaced on set of motor bearings after 4 battery packs, and it sounds like another 2 are on their way. I lucked out at my rc shop and got the Align bearings for $4 a motor. Other than that, this thing rocks! I would buy another quad from Ideafly based on my first time Ideafly experience so far. The motors aren't really a big deal to me. The esc's barely get warm after 20 min flight times with a gopro style camera.

First post could do with some C4E factoids in it. Like what ESC's are compatible, what is the correct firmware/GUI and maybe some suggested settings for a 'stock' ifly4.

That's how it usually works right, else we're still having to trawl through the ifly4 thread.

I wouldn't use anything that wasn't listed for the ifly c4e. 1.7 is under the the v4m catagory. And as some people have rendered their controller null with the wrong firmware, I would be too scared

No its ok you have the same fc as me I have the 4S and have downloaded the 1.7 firmware because I have the GPS .

If like me you download it the wrong way your fc wont connect to the tools its kaput, I was told by a ifly tech guy how to force the firmware in and it worked I was on the verge of buying a new fc so don't worry as long as you put the new firmware in the right order.
