Thanks again

My pleasure. You can get this style of connector in many different numbers of pins.

I like your idea, and it does seem to produce very smooth video. If I may, I can suggest something that might be easier than dealing with the string. You could use rubber bands in both positions by either using different sized rubber bands to wrap around around the camera and to connect that rubber band to the heli frame, or use a large rubber band and tie a knot in one end of it, to make a small loop on the camera end, and a larger loop to reach up over the heli. Maybe use 2 of them coming from opposing sides.

When I eventually try a camera on my mQX, I'll try something like your idea.

Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed there hasn't been any complaints about the right front motor for awhile. The replacement HH sent me has lasted way longer than the first two I had. I wonder if they fixed the problem?

May be it comes and goes with batches.
Speaking of which, Horizon Hobby seems to be out of mQx motors (both cw and ccw), so perhaps yet another batch is coming.

I really wish I got the mQX over the mSR X. Although the mSR X has helped me with orientation a ton. I can fly the mCPmX more confidently. I don't have enough money to get it too but it sure would be nice to get the mQX. It looks like a ton of fun. The mSR X has terrible motor longetivity. It's also not as durable as the mQX as I can see. Maybe I'll sell off the mSR X for this bird. I can also see on how they could come out with a CP micro quad.

I saw also your "floating camera" post is better but I think you can do it even better and nice.
For me is bad for the eyes if the flying is not smooth and I stop watching.

enjoy,

Thanks guys.

I am no Professional, I need many many flights on her to get it perfect, Zero wind tolerance, period.
Not insulting, or taken that way, I cannt force anyone to watch a video, I just do not show "a video of a plane in a scene flying" I always do a storyline (Skit), so my video, to say is wobbly and hurt my eyes, all I can do is Laugh. I as well always complimet the user, and post a like at youtube then to watch on rcgroups, For I do not care for hands showing a item, but I again like said above....

To place bands, andadd them correctly may work, or adding soft springs, give me an idea center spring band on all four corners. will look into it.

Here is a video called FLoating key cam flight showing you someshots, if I could oriente better I am sure the video would have worked out? I hope it is to your liking, thank you for the advice and comments?

This Afternoon I got some flights in, and now notice a front motor cut out at times three propsspinning , not losing altitude. I landed, inspected to find a fractured boom. Ordered a pair,as they come. And will be replacing it.

I doublt Horizon will send a free replacement.. As nothing is defective, Maybe in the future we will see not just blades, but a few add'l parts, one of each that be sweet?
