No doubt. I have one of his hex spyder frames and while I've yet to get it off the ground (long story), it's excellent. I want something small so I can learn to bang around in my backyard without feeling to cramped for space. The hex is on the largish side, at least to me.

I'll get it ordered tonight, and then be back here to bug the snot out of everybody over what's the hot ticket hardware wise. I'll be looking for lazy long flight time over hot rod performance, for now. Crawl and walk before run and all that....

Ok, so this is the hardware I'm looking at, but I'm pretty much flying blind here, and basing my guesses off of what others have chosen in this thread. Finding and picking motors has got to be the single biggest headache so far. Drives me nuts trying to figure that out. Obviously this is all from hobby king, but I'm open to suggestions as to where to purchase, as well as WHAT to purchase.

I put a few different batteries up. One of them I believe will fit between the frame plates, the others I'm not so sure but guessing not.

My goal at this point is geared more towards max flight time rather than sporty performance. Pointers in that regard are more than welcome.

Those were the motors I wish I had got. You might need to dremel a little more space around the motor hole.

Your ESCs will fit in the arms nice and snug

You would want to use 6" props.

and 1500-1600 with a min of 25c

A flying dot..
Close to the end there was a couple of nice flip to be seen...!
I think that solve the question about weight vs power... :-)

Well done Nate

Need to track down a couple of standoffs as well. My kit was short a couple so the tail sections are un-joined at the moment. I didn't think to measure at the time, and too late (and lazy) to get out of my chair to do it, but if I recall they're .5". Shouldn't be that hard to source I'd think.

Damn...
I might have forgot to give you the spacers to do the tail.
Should be the normal 0.5" but with spacer to level at the same hight of arms.. so 2 1.5mm ..

Ok, my local hobby stores looking at me like I'm from Mars when I ask about stand-offs. Any suggestions where I might be able to source these little buggers?

Ahh, a mixup in communication. It's not that I want longer standoffs for the tail. I don't have them....at all. I was missing two standoffs, so the tail section is doing without right now. If they were just a bit short I could get some washers or something to use as spacers, but as I said I don't have them at all.

Not 100% sure on the screws. There was a bunch of left over hardware like tiny little pieces of all-thread, misc screws, 4 short little stand-offs with screws that I think are probably for mounting a little fpv camera, etc. But 100% sure there are no more stand-offs anywhere close to the right size for the tail section.
