Thanks for your feedback, warthox! Means a lot to us.

If you have more info on the stabilization settings you eventually used and are happy with, don't hesitate to post them! The default settings are pretty tame in order to enable a first uneventful test flight, and it is true most people will make them more aggressive very fast. If you get a XBee or any other telemetry modem, you can actually tune them in flight from the GCS, though there is no option to do this from the RC receiver yet.

Thank you Warthox! .. wonderful feedback, your videos never cease to amaze me.

I was wondering what the 'standard' multicopter mounting hole spacing is you mention?

Also what is the standard mounting hole size I wonder?

Our boards are normally 36mm * 36mm, the hole spacing is 30.5mm and the hole size is 3mm.

The small non standard size is definatly a good thing. Having an adaptor available would be nice, but enlarging the main board for no other reason would be crazy!

Looks like a very nice project.. keep up the good work.

Our boards are much smaller than all the rest Pip ;-)

Great to see Warthox flying the CC, the default settings might well be too stiff for experienced multirotor pilots but a balance had to be struck.

The boards are proven to fly Tri Quad and Hexas as they stand though.

Droidworx and Rusty frames support CC board size. Fits in a standard frame from Mikrocopter as well if you use the inner holes.

Its nice that is intended from the start up to be used also on fixed wing aircraft, so a magneto is not present? And the gps couldn't be used on this board right as was mentioned on the start of this thread?

How about posting your settings so it will be easier for other experienced multi pilots who dont want to use the default settings.

the standart form factor for me is 45x45mm or sometimes 44.5x44.5mm like the mk boards and most others.
holes for m3 screws.

but the op cc is not only for multicopter as i understood, so its good that it is small. i wouldnt enlarge it,too but an adapter ring would be great.

I know it sounds like a good idea tony. And in theory it is.

But in reality , settings ( especially the control loop settings ) depend more on the exact frame and power combinations. its not just a matter of the pilot.

The settings that make his quad fly so wonderfully , could make your quad uncontrollable.

Really the defaults are very conservative , in order to get the craft 'in the air' so that the control loop can be tuned.

I am experienced with multis and fully understand what you are saying but it would make it easier for guys to get theirs tuned if they have some settings that work. All the vids I have watched of the core team quads look untuned. It is much easier for a skilled pilot to tune a multi and I am guessing the default settings were not come up with using a skilled multi pilot.
