we usually pump them full of air to make them look fatter to the fishies. That's a lot of fun and it works too. Looks like Jonboy is gone for the night.

Hey kids, who gave me $20.00 cash for the sod farm Christmas on Saturday.

Send me a PM with your full name and I will add it to the list.

And as a little reminder, please make a donation if possible as a show of thanks to the sod farm for being soo generous with their farm and letting us have the best flying field in the world!!!!! Even a little is better than nothin!

PS, right now I have 2 - $75.00 gifts and 1 - $20.00 gift. So the gift amounts are great, but the qty stinketh!!!!!! Come on kids, lets get this going before its too late.

I really want to wrap this up as soon as possible as last year I was down there on nearly Christmas Eve tracking people down to give the gift basket to.

PS, one of the $75.00 came from a guy who has been to the farm about 3 times in his life..... And a guy from Texas is sending some $..... Pretty sure that money will have that Yankee smell on it! Certainly the regulars can keep up.

Are you talking about a KK board?
If you attached something, I can't see it.

Never done one but yeah, I think that's board you want. You will have to change the firmware to make it work as a tri. Here's the info you need:

Jon that is the same board that Todd just picked up and needs to come over and have me program for him... I've used the real KK blue board and the version 5.5 black boards on a Hex with no issues the latest firmware is great!

Ya, that should work. I have a programmer if you need it changed to a tri. Takes about 30 seconds to do. I have a couple of the 48atmega boards I would make you a deal on.

Jon I would suggest this board its a little over kill for a tri-copter but uses mems gyro's instead of pezo gryos but will do up to 12 motors/servos and is has free shipping... http://www.goodluckbuy.com/flycam-kk...12-rotors.html

I ordered one a couple days ago I want to try a Hex 12 with it...

Sweet Mike, I would really like to get the Tricopter to fly right as it makes a great video platform.

I will order it up and then beg you for help at some point. Thanks.

PS, Mike, I dont want my Tricopter to fly that well... $51.00 bucks is a steal, but doesnt help me on the budget.

This gets rid of all the gyros (4 of them)I currently have???? I still need the ESC's though???

Hex 12!!!!!!!! Seriously????????? Dang, thats alot of stuff going on!!!!!!

Ether board will let you get rid of regular gyros both KK clone flight control boards have them built in. The $51.00 dollar KKmulticopter board is a clone of the new KKMulticopter.kr Flycam black board that is sold for $140.00 plus shipping. If you look at it that way $51.00 is a steal for mems gyro's onboard and shouldn't drift as much as the pezo gyros.

The drift is only an issue if you are sitting around hovering????? If I was actively flying drift shouldnt be an issue???? Or does the drift mean that the tail gyro could start to drift and always be getting worse and worse throughout the flight????

Thanks for all the info fellers.

The drift would be more noticeable in just hovering... But it would be from flight to flight more so then in the same flight.
