Got my spider hex in the air with the CC3D plugged in.
Not very stable yet but I'm sure it needs some tuning.
Micro quad now has nav lights so I can keep an eye on it
As per the QAV500 will be in attendance but now with 4s 5000 packs

Any data on the lighting available? which micro quad I have a hubsan and a mjx x100 ( which already has lights) fitted with a modified udi 816a bumper very stable close to the hubsan i think

PS I still cant get on that usa tv websight

Regards Jeff

My lights are dead simple.
You just need a LED strip and cut off a set of three LEDs then cut off the third as I'm using a 2s pack and just wire it up direct to the battery. As simple as it gets.
Plus if you bend the stip at 9o degrees you can stick it on the quad with one led pointing forward and one pointing down. it's a 2fa

That's interesting. Just started experimenting with the tri again, props off, on the dining table and have already noticed some odd events (motor speeding up, others slowing to a stuttering halt without any throttle change). I think this is going to take some doing. New props arriving tomorrow hopefully so might be able to make a few test hops and see if this weird throttle effect persists.

Make sure you program the esc's together.
Oh and with a kk2 and digital tail servo make sure you have the servo filter set high enough to stop the rapid movement....mine is at 80.
