Yeah your zagi is perfect, one of these motors is ideal with a 30A esc and 10x6 prop on 3s 2200 lipos.

I'm telling you, it is very addicting. I think it's worst than being addicted to drugs...

help with 2.5 build

been trying to solve some issues for the past few weeks. hoping someone can help:

2.5 rcexplorer tri w/ kk2.0 (been updating firmware as released). 9x flashed with er9x.

Tri wants to pull forward and to the left. Can figure why it' s doing it. I've done the receiver test on the board. i've calibrated the ACC. ESCs are calibrated. motors and props are balanced. Props are on the correct way and motors are rotating correctly. I've basically double-checked everything i can think of. I know this is going to be something really simple that i've completely overlooked.

This is my first build, and one of my first forays into RC anything. I just dont have the experience to figure this out on my own. Help a noob out! Thanks.

Could be a bad gyro on the board.
