If you are too poor for a GoPro, then something like this will do the job better than an iPhone.

I already have collected all parts for my T6. I just need some time to build it. I'm gonna use NTM 1200kv motors and Turnigy 25A ESCs so I'll expect this copter to take off like a rocket.
got all the parts already ? C'mon man build it ! NTM are good bl motors I heard but ,I'll use the DT700 for now.I will be using a HK 20A...this should be fine.I checked www.hoverthings.com and seen alot of good stuff on their site...are you happy with hoverthings services ?

you can get the Gopro Naked for $129 now, I got the 960 which only shoots 720p and but seems from there site they only sell the naked 1080. I got the outdoor 960 which cam with the head strap which is awesome. I've had mine for awhile now and love it.
Only downfall is in low light/cloudy conditions. But its not that bad.

If you look around you may find the 960

The high and low on the misc mixer for the servo speak to low=analog, high=digital. It's the refresh rate to the servo. Analog servo will wobble badly on high, potentially ruining your analog servo.
Filter on analog servo implements a low frequency filter that eliminates any servo wobble. If you have Servo wobble increase the filter setting.
I fly digital on high and a filter setting of 35-50.

thanks, that was with my old KK v2 flashed with 4.7. But had Probs with the YAW. it would never hold. always drifted. Crazy thing is!! I learned how to fly like it. lol when i got the 2.0 the locking yaw was new to me. Not that i had to learn how to fly again but it sure was nice to not have to steer the Rudd 100% of the time.


The Props are form HK
cheap, very flexible and hard to brake. Only when i broke 2 arms in a crash did one brake

Note: the CW ones need to be balanced BIG time.

Cant wait to get my replacement arms from foxtech this week. also have the integrated PDB F450 from HK coming as well, so ill have 8 extra arms

This is before i flashed with the 1st acc mod FW
KK2.0 F450 Late night flying. (11 min 23 sec)

Yes, HoverThings offer a very good service so I'm a happy customer. They messed up one of my orders once (i.e. sent me a wrong part), but this was handled very professionally and I received the correct part shortly after. I will order more parts from them soon.

The only problem with using a VC-550 frame for my build is the limited space inside the arms. I may have to attach the ESCs on the outside this time.

Seems they have fixed this loophole, I want to order two, I've broken my current two (at least the LCD is gone on both, can't be 100% sure the board is any good at this point although avrdude can flash and verify it, wasn't someone working on a mod software to be serial instead of LCD?)

Anyway, anyone figure out a currently working way to order more than one, these boards are way too fragile to simply order one at a time....
