I'm thinking about doing a build thread.. You guys think I should?
Yes please, build thread would be great!

Andrey or Gary, Lobster page says that AG600 and AG700 are bolt-on ready.
I'm guessing the AG550v2 (upgraded) will work too?

For the Lobster, I still really like the 2814s. Anyway, I won't be able to test these for awhile yet. It is a little busy around here, at the moment.

Among other things, like shipping out all remaining orders (some were waiting on parts, which should be here this morning...), I need to finish up the Lobster and Shrimp instructions. Ken (Blade Strike...) is going to help by taking some pictures for me tonight, so I hope to get the Lobster instructions up tomorrow. Time permitting later, I will try doing the same with the new Shrimp instructions.

As soon as I have Andrey's shipment in hand, I will put up the Shrimp kits, and re-enable the other items that are out-of-stock, on the site.

I know you guys are really busy, but is it possible to get any info on the King Crab?

hey guys, quick stupid question but which i dont really know the answer to.

how do you guys operate your gimbal (tilt) with a controller like, lets say hoverfly, whilst using DJIWKM which is using the receiver. im just a little confused.

Connect hoverfly gimbal controller to a free slot on your RX. Then program that channel to a slider/knob on the TX

ok sounds easy. so i take off the current servo leads going to WKM and put them to hoverfly, then on output of hoverfly to RX?

i dont have a gimbal controller yet, however thinking of getting a hoverfly.

Servos to HFG to RX.

Download the HFG manual, it helped me. Gary had some in the AG550s instructions too that I bet are in the AG600 manual

To work the tilt...

Battery => BEC => to HoverFly
RX lead to => HoverFly (remove the red wire (+ voltage) from the lead)
The Naza or WKM are not even in the loop.

ok make sense, can i power the hoverfly off WKM or needs its own BEC, if so, can i grab the power from the main PCB to a BEC which goes to the hoverfly?

My thinking is... the Naza (do not know the WKM) runs on 5v & I do not want to pull additional amps running the servos. Also do not want to take a chance of blowing the Naza Bec. For that same reason I may just run a separate battery & BEC to run the gimbal servos or at least a separate BEC off the PCB board. This way you can set the Bec to 6v for the servos. It will make them slightly faster with more torque.

I am using the Castle Creations CC Bec which is programmable. You need a usb programming cable to connect to a PC (already had one).
