G,
"In-circuit serial programmer" which can be used to flash the ATMEGA with other flight firmware. Not sure about the A, B, C.
Cheers,

Well i got some props in the mail today but they are the tri-props i ordered them before you guys told me they are junk!! and guess what all the CW props where the bushings go in are all loose-fitting thats just bull ,any ways i also ordered the 9x6 tri-prop so i checked all of them and the bushing fit perfect so i put them on to try it in the house the wind is still ripping and what a difference with these props seems to be a lot more stable with them ,I ran it for just a couple of minuets because i don't want to hurt the electronics don't know if they will over heat them.
I should have my 8x4 props by Wednesday i hope and we will see how it goes.

I thought that I saw some blue aluminum prop mounts in the pics and demo vid ... that screw down onto the props ... isn't that how they are mounted?

What is the weight of the frame? Is there any flex or do the booms twist?

I had a frame similar to this one. It's now in my museum as the booms had too much flex, it was heavy too at 550grams!!

Some video G would be awesome...

The rigidity of boom is important. Some structural reinforcements were applied to increase the rigidity and flying stability. The weight of this frame is 235 grams included landing gears.
