Xaircraft X600D Quad

As promised, here is the new thread on the Xaircraft X600D. http://www.cnchelicopter.com/servlet...ircraft/Detail or here: http://www.firstpersonview.co.uk/air...e7fc5dc21d7ab7 I was going to take it apart and do a build thread, however Simon at FirstPersonView has done such a good job of translating the manual and he also did some build videos of the X600D v.1.

I've attached three photos of the finished X600D. I will also post a Vimeo video of my testing when it finally uploads to Vimeo and converts it.

OK, here is the video. Note how the props don't spin at the same speed.

Yes, the manual has lots of easy to understand pictures like the one you posted. Assembly is shown in step by step photos with English descriptions.

Hey Jeff,
First u need to set all trims and sub trims to zero,
Then turn on the quad get the props spinning at a low speed,then apply the throttle slowly and see what side of the quad comes off the ground first,if it don't come off the ground evenly then u need to adjust the pots on the board,I don't know what pot does what on that board so u will need to figure that out,just move one just a little and see what the quad does,then do the other two and see what they do,use the pots to get the quad to come off the ground nice and smooth then u can use your Tx for the final adjustments.
Good luck.

Thanks G. I'm just making a test stand for it. I'll feel safer with it on the stand. Then I can test to my hearts content.

Gotta tie that quad down! It looks like it has power to spare!
I see 3 pots on the control board for fine tuning, if there is any rime or reason to how they effect power to the 4 motors, be sure to let us know!

I finally made my test stand. This allows me to check all my settings etc without worrying about crashing. In fact I found out that I had the channels plugged in wrong. I'll check them and post what I have setup. Anyway, here are some pictures of my stand and a video will be coming.
