Wow , the standard 2 blade props i received from Hobbyking are massively out of balance , each prop has needed at least 2 inches of tape on one of the blades in order to balance, i hope the 3 bladed props are better.

I gave up on that props, totally waste of money and times to balance it .

P.S. but on the other hand 2 blades look cooler than 3 blades .

Lol, the 2 blades are ok until you get high rpm and then they start flexing causing vibration. I have sat and balanced one of the props as perfectly as possible , the motor on its own is smooth throughout the throttle range , once the prop is on the spool up is smooth until aprox 60% throttle at which ponit you can see the blade wobble on the shaft, no matter , i will wait till the triple balde props arrive and then i will find some higher quality 2 blade.

Alrighty, just ordered new motors, props and wires. I ordered 5 motors just to be safe, I don't trust the QC on cheap motors at all! I'm gonna have to make do with the KK board on this one. The Crius board stays on my large quad. I also have to redo all the wiring and relocate the ESCs. Shouldn't take more than a couple of hours. Can't wait!

made my own power spider late last night and finished the LEDS this morning. This is with no tuning on copter control. With balanced props and some vibration dampening this sucker should hold its postion very well. It flies fantastic.

Received mine a few week ago. The designs is excellent and putting up together went without a problem.
On opening of the packet, I'm a bit disappointed with 2 things many have mention it.

1) The laser cutting finish is terrible
2) The seller tape used leave a nasty glue Dude stop using that seller tape buy a roll of masking tape.

That's really shame for such a good design to throw it all away with such nasty laser cutting finish and a nasty seller tape for the packaging.

Well thx daign could you pop to the shop to get me some that'll be great. My post simply reflect on the quality of the production and packaging.

There is a solution to everything in life and if you buy a brand new car you don't expect to wash it don't you?

Please read the post again: the design of this quad is great I only wishes the production and packaging will have had a bit more attention.

Sellertape ? cellotape is the word mine came right off with my finger nail didnt even have to scratch it hard just a little flick.
