tom6696950 Did you fly or just run it sitting still?
I don't have the souped up "s" model but so far my motors remain cool and so do the ESCs.
11.1 is all I have used so far.

Ya i was just standing pretty much in one spot because i had never put my camra on it so i was just checking to make sure all was good but the motor and battery got warm i was lifting 850g which is pretty heavy so I'm sure that the motor would get warm i just do want to start flying round with my camra on it and have it drop from the sky

tom6696950 What I did to test my other quad was to weigh my camera.
Then I taped some batteries together for the same weight.
I put that on the camera mount and started testing.
The camera was safely on my desk and my crashes didn't bother the camera.
When I got more used to the way the quad acted with the extra weight I removed the weight package and put on the camera.

mkmkmk13,

Most US dealers will still be out. I think only the off shore places will have any in. US distributor told me it will still be 1 - 2 weeks before they arrive.

330X Finger Protection System

Thanks everyone for your concern for my fingers. I decided to create a quick and easy 330X Finger Protection System(tm) consisting of a leftover scrap of 19/32 ply, a few 2x4 scrap pieces (glued with Tightbond III of course) and some velcro and pan-head screws.

Cost: $0, mostly scraps.
Time to build: 5 minutes, didn't even wait for the glue to dry since the velcro holds the lift down.
Value of my 10 fingers: priceless.

Works great. Wish I could say the same for my 330X. After more extensive isolation testing I have 4 good motors, 1 dead ESC and one "less-than-completely-reliable" one. Working to get replacements...

Startup #1

1. Bringup of all 4 ESCs in calibration mode. Cacaphony of beeping.
2. End calibration.

3. Attempted normal start, note 2s lipo beep, but no final "all good beep"
4. Motors 1 and 4 run, no issues. Motor 2 is completely dead to the world. Motor 3 goes clunkity.

Startup #2
5. Disconnected ESCs 1,2 and 4.
6. Motor #3 rotates, but clunks. Quickly stops, can be restarted by throttle reset. Never generates useful power.


The first few tries I got the GU-344 to give me the normal 5 beep startup (2s LiPo). Disconnecting any of the ESCs causes the Gyro to beep (missing ESCs no doubt).
I ran out of time to try motor #2, for now knowing whether motor #3 or it's ESC is broken is the first step.

My 330X-S should be here next week. Are there any basic tips and tricks or mods that people would suggest for the build and configuration/setup? Or is as per the instructions the best way to go to get going intially?
