Yes think I've been lucky as there has been a lot of carnage, around but got away with-it, just a wobbly fence panel...

Great video there!

Hello

Flew my wookong hexa for a few days ago and it flew really nice. Yesterday in first lift off it wants to drift a lot to the right roll. I do a lot of sub trims to the left roll and then it flew good again. But does anyone know that went wrong?
The ground I started on was not completely straight, it leaned a little to the right when I hooked up the batteries. Fredde

Some one should have mention that all TRIM was supposed to be in center !
problem solved.... as I said before, it must have been some small text in the manual that I had missed.

thanx timecop for solving the problem :-)

Flying was OK..
-25 Degree Celsius outside, so I`m only flying inside for testing.

Anyway, it felt like I could add some more gain on the roll\pitch ?
It was very sensitive on the sticks, and when I hold it in my hand hovering, I could easy turn it.
This is usual ?

sorry to ask , but I have only used GU controller before, and that one was rock stable hovering in air!

Hi
When I start the motors the motors spin at different rate in attitude or manual mode in the beginning. Is it ok. I upgraded the firmware to 2.0 and 5.0. The quad flipped two times.

Thanks
I've had no problems with my antenna cable similar to this. But it wouldn't hurt to put space between the cable and the carbon like tony said.

But don't get too crazy about it. Unless your in a full carbon sailplane shell, futaba is pretty solid.

Basic RC dude, center everything, clear mixes, curves, etc. when starting any new model.

Do you have any expo setup that might be causing the fast rates and twitchy feeling?

I use Norton and Avira, don't have the issue. AVG definitions might treat a non-threat file as virus. Disable AVG to install.

Guide me to the place in the manual where it read "arming motors will start motors." - I didn't found anything about it.

If this is a real virus, it may be dangerous, but I will try to take a chance
