We live in a weird society...

Yep, I used them for a SMD gyro board. They were very slow and eventually said they were not getting any new stock of the part I ordered. They sent out a replacement of a higher value in the end. Nice guys, just a bit slow.

I had bought before props from and the service was excellent. We are supposed to wait for the paypal invoice and the first time it came in a matter of days they even adjusted the shipping costs to a lower value. Excellent service.

Now, I made a second order and nothing... the order is still there waiting... and waiting for alot of time.
I haven't payed nothing so far, but still I'd like some answer. Already sent and email asking if there is any problem but nothing.

Does anyone been using their services recently?

My experience too.
My order was delivered very fast, but had a part missing. They did'nt react on email, so I called them (luckily I did'nt have to talk German, English was fine ) They made excuses and told they did get too much mail to answer properly. I should have the parts in a week. After a few weeks I did'nt get anything so I had to call them again. After that I had the parts in a few days.

So, if you have trouble's with them, take the phone!

Test video of my quad board using the X version of the KK firmware. Very stable. Hadn't even balanced the props yet.

4. Wires inside the arm is good but not easy? 10x10x1 alu may be a good for this?

5. Esc`s hidden in center of the frame is a good idea.

And a big G10 mounting plate for the controller,rx,esc,tx for the cam would be nice. Maby some protecting plate over it all on the top.

Look at the picture and maby you get an idea of what I mean?

I will use the this tx for my cam.

You will see the dimensions under transmitter's features.
culexus, That was a good Tx, I'm using it myself. Infact I just finished my first FPV video. But you need a patch antenna to get a better range.

I use this key-cam also, but you have to keep vibrations away. Look at this (short) clip, i only have velcro between cam and copter and that is not good against vibrations.

Tri- and Hexacopter - Air2Air (1 min 7 sec)

(it was very windy and i always have to nick to stay at one place )

I also use the cam mounted on a basecap and that is ok, but a little bit wide angle would be nice.

Is HK401B gyro a three-axis gyro or single-axis gyro?

Thanks.

Niall,
The board arrived today in the post so now the game is afoot.
I need to collect the gyros next but HobbyKing is always backordered...bother.
A very nice looking board and it is so small.
Thanks again,
Tom
