And I don't want to run apc or gaui 8inch props on 4s bc the lift won't really be any better. Also I'm need to use the 3 batteries on something lol but my new iconic x quad is using 850 kv motors and ill be running that on 4s w/ graupner 9 or 10 inch props. It should be one mean flyer
Nice...i just ordered some suppo 2814 1k kv and 30amp simonk esc's to put on the quad...can't wait to see it go on 4s! Currently running 2212 850 kv and 4s

No...rctimer...I've had them since i started flying multi rotors...they have served me well too...just time for a change....

Although i have some ipower 2814's 750 kv and they rock too...they are currently on my Y6...but I'm breaking that down and making a Tcopter....should be pretty cool when its done...

Got some bugs to work out... (OSD GPS not getting a fix)
(long 8min boring backyard, I know but I am still excited I got it going!)

Believe it or not there were some stiff breezes blowing between those buildings - but I
may have some other calibrations to fix...

It doesnt seem like it since it's cutting in and out pretty badly.

I could be stupidly wrong though.

Hi guys,

I found a new flying site and had a blast over the weekend FPVing. Here's some of the highlights. About a third of the footage was on my HT-FPV frame, the rest was a HT-450.

This is quite the robust frame. Had a random failsafe, fell from about 3 stories. No major damage. Just need to replace a prop and re-epoxy an arm plate and I'm good to go. Thanks again for an awesome frame!

Can anyone with a CC3D flight controller post his successfull settings?

Right now I'm back to (pretty badly working) default settings, but I've tried a lot in the past. And it's neither hovering in one spot, nor very stable at all. Unfortunately not! That's why I'm starting to become a bit depressed with that frame. Spent sooo many hours trying to tune it right.

I'm running 3300mah to 3600mah 4s batteries with NTM 1200kv 28-26 motors and 8inch Graupner E-Props.

Any help would be highly appreciated!!

Make sure your CG is correct, even back a bit further... and that your arms are straight (no twist in the arm). Any flight controller will work fine with this frame if the frame is balanced correctly.

Just run a string across the motors and where they cross is the c/g...which I think came out around 1" or so forward of the foremost end of the rear arms.
