Thank you very much!

Truth is I wish you knew too. Then I would have someone to call. LOL!
If you think you got problems.
Everytime I call someone they answer with this statement.


Wow, your doing what? Oh, yeah. You can't do that with our product.
Well then, your not supposed to be able to do that with our product.

That happens to me all the time.

Wow I just tried a set of 8 inch props on my quad , it think its the smoothest its ever been . I need to to flight test it still more times but this was by far the most noticeable difference . I'm uploading flight video right now will take a bit still. I started out flying the 9 inch and then tried 10 inch and I think that might have been the wrong way to go .

But my Vtx only takes 12v & I wonder about the QuadRino board (low voltage beeper, or anything else)?
Should I just use an 11v UBEC (http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...duct=18787) on the main from the lipo? How would you guys do this? 
Thanks!
Did you ever get this figured out? I was interested in doing the same.

A UBEC would work, so would a small ~460mAh 3S battery. I power my Vtx on a separate battery, works fine.

Nice flying Steve! I noticed you took the landing gear. Aesthetic reason?

Labor Day weekend flight

Just me showing off my Awesome Witespy to a friend. It kinda presented a challenge (GPS signal weak) because of numerous housing in his area. And also lots of people out enjoying the afternoon. I normally don't fly on a very busy place. But my confidence w/ my quad was enough for me to do a show and tell. he was impressed w/ this machine. A couple of bystanders also gave me compliments of how cool it looks.
BTW, bare w/ the cheesy " Casio track" on it.

I have my GoPro mounted underneath in the protective case hanging down, in order to have the camera off the ground when its standing the legs have to be almost vertical, looks bad to me so I just removed them all together, requires a hand launch or a launch from in between a couple boxes. Landing is no big deal since the GoPro is in its protective case I can either just catch it out of the air or put it down carefully on the GoPro .

If you mount the camera with only the sticky mount and locking plate, but not the swivel arm thing, you should easily be able to make it clear the ground without landing gear straight down.

Or you can mount it like this:

I can see them arms are longer there will be more breakage.
All they did was make them arms longer.
