Went flying Fpv over at an old land fill. Was not paying attention and must have dropped below the rim. Quad just fell out of the sky, dirt blocked the transmitter signal. But not the 5.8 video. Thought it was lost it the tall brush till the fall. I looked for about 2 hours, nothing. As a lark I told the 2 neighbor boys that I'd give them 50 bucks if the found it. They took off on dirt bikes, hour later Im short $50 but got my quad back. Just busted props. Still not sure why it dropped from the sky

^ Love the tie-wrap legs. That's what I do on mine.

If you were using a Taranis, you might have gotten a warning, assuming it was your radio link that went. You can also use it to track down the quad.
I'm about to fit a lost buzzer to mine - the Flip32 has a manufacturing fault where the buzzer won't, but there is a mod to fix that.

I will try to build my first quad. Parts are all on the way.
What i cant find is a smaller battery velcro than 200mm. Seems a little bit too long.

What is the best way to secure the batt for the FPV260?

I bought one of the 5 packs of 20x 200mm straps from Ebay like these... http://www.ebay.com/itm/Black-Tie-Do...item234d10aa8e

and they work great for 3s 1300mah 45c Nanotech's.

I use these. They are long enough to cut up into what length you need.

Instead of putting velcro on my batteries, I wrap one around the battery and one around the fuselage to hold the battery on.

I've cut mine to be just a little more that the length I need to provide some strain relief in the wires. On the ESCs I can replace the wires if need be so not much risk there. On the motors I'm more careful as those wires are much more difficult to replace.
