One of the cleanest, tidiest and "I want one" installation I have ever seen

Very tidy installation, what motors and ESCs do you use and do you have an external UBEC?

Avroto 2217 800kv motors, APC balanced props, 18A PLUSH esc's, no bec - just the DJI power module (does bec and more).

Testflight went GREAT. All is working excellent. GPS position good, but had trouble some times in the ~10m radius play. Could it be that it was very cloudy (almost rain) night ? Does it affect GPS ?

Very nice build!! "just hit add to cart" - that was funny. What does "10m radius play" mean? 10 miles, meters?

Thanks for the input, I'm waiting for my X650 to arrive but it won't be here before the end of next week because of the chinese new year holiday.
Since I want the Wookong on it, I've ordered a barebone X650 with only the motors, propellers & ESCs.
As the ESCs are not compatible with the Wookong module, I ordered 4 Turnigy 18A Plush to replace them, hope they are rated for the motors that come with the X650.
I got my quad here: http://www.myrcmodel.com/index.php?m...oducts_id=2427

Look what I just receive.
I got this deal for 849 euros shipped.



Shall I start the built now or wait at least one more week for the X650 frame?

10 meters!

I have no issue with "add to cart", I do it all the time
It's the annoying thing that comes after that.

If you got the ESC's, motors and props in the Flame wheel kit, I would start now.

I don't have any of the above.
Do you program your quad as a heli or as an airplane?
