Yippee!
Maiden Flight HoverFly Pro Hexa

First Hover of the Hexa HoverFly Pro board

I have to say I did not touch no trims had 8-10 wind it just sat there, gain was at 50 and 50 may be able to come up on that all control surfaces was solid yaw felt go I had no expo at all. The AUW including a mock camera weight plus camera weight was 6 - 4ozs. with RC Timer 2836-11 750 KV and 30 amp SC and JR. 2.4 and 4S 5000 Turnigy 25C pack.

I even flipped in the Auto Level it worked great flipped out and landed it hover for about 8 minutes. I but the battery on charge so now I will see how much battery I used. All I can say now is "WOW" that was nice the weather was crappy but who cares this looks very promising one hell of a start in my book.
Wish to thanks Shawn for answering all my questions and some of you other guys that helped as well. I am sure the question are far from over but what a blast.

That's good to hear! My y6 is also awesome, didn't feel the need to apply trim for my sport flying. Maybe a video from you to share the joy?

Hey Michael64,

Great news! Congrats! Glad to hear it went so well.

Read manual + read RCGroups + ask questions + use known compatible components = success!

Good luck fine tuning.

Shawn
