Thanks
The Multiwii boards are a good alternative as well as an Openpilot CC board.

Another great option is the Picloc 3x Pro.

This is a recurring theme with multiple reports of the S800+Z15 having no jello in the beginning, and then appearing after a number of flights.
This would suggest that the plastic arms are weakened over time by vibrations, making them even more flexible.

As soon as I get the Anti-Vibration mounts from SeCraft I will personally test them.

Yes, the Flu was tough this year. Still worked everyday thou.

I would more expect the rubber isolators on the Z15 to weaken (become more elastic) over time than the molded plastic arms. No one with the vibration issues has yet to replace them with the stiffer options, I'm betting that would take care of the Z15G people.

I'm going to buy mine from Robert if they turn out to do a good job because he does a great job supporting what he sells but Secraft posted some more pictures... http://secraft.net/shop/step1.php?number=1342

I wish you could have 2 red and 4 black as an option.

The price doesn't seem too bad.

If they improve the video quality for the average servo gimbals they will sell a lot!

Not everyone wants to hassle carbon/resin mess unless you do it all the time, bolt on parts "if they work" are the way to go for mods.

Seacraft, make sure both hardware and the plates are hardened material and you might have a winner!

Ah, so they're SeCraft then. How long until you get them? I have the carbon stuff ordered but I might do these instead.

They can be ordered direct from Secraft, and you will find that their shipping is top notch. Secraft totally stands behind their products and are great people to deal with. We are doing a review of their Rhine X Quad Copter, which should be out this week. We flew it today and it is a sporty little Bastard......

I checked the shipping amount and put in the wrong zone and it said $40 shipping. I put in the right one and it's $19 which is more reasonable. How long does it normally take to get stuff from South Korea?

I ordered the SeCraft retracts for the S800 on 31 Dec, just got them in last weekend. Although there were some problems with my order, once everything was resolved it only took 7 business days to get it.
Despite the issues I had, they always replied to my emails and questions. Based on the customer service I received alone, I'm sold on doing business with SeCraft. They have a customer for life. Now if they only could drop the price a bit on their products.

Their Customer Service is very hard to beat....They look at anything from the Customer's point of view and value your input greatly. Just because they are in Korea should have NO impact on your purchase. The ONLY drawback is that sometimes things get missed in translation from Korean to English, but they are working on that. The Customer always gets the benifit of doubt and what do you have to loose...? They have been around for years (just check the competitive circles) and they stand, totally behind what they sell. Yes, it usually takes seven business days to receive your order (based on the US) and their products are well proven in the RC World. As far as reccomendations, I can reccomend them highly......!
