thank you, You right, but i can't let it go with sdshobby. I'll do my best to get missing parts from them, I don't want to loose money.

I hear ya. But think of the several hundred dollars sitting on a shelf, because of $20 worth of missing parts. I'd spend the $20, get the thing flying and enjoy it, and keep on the sdshobby for the parts. You will always need spare parts, especially the landing gear. I have broke the gear 3 times, simply from hard landings. Just my 2 cents.

you completly right! i ordered the parts form hobbycool. The shipping is more reasonable. Just hope they shipped the order properly. I'm not lucky, i called hobbycool because of a process payment bug on their website. The guy doesn't let me time to explain the problem, stopped the conversation suddently saying '' i call you back'' and hang up the phone....without even took my phone number!

I'm wondering what's the problem with all those hobby stores. Hey guys, we give you our money and you aint able to offer minimum customer service we can expect for.

That is one problem with Hobbycool. Their only "voice" is their techsupport guy. He is cool and will help out every way possible, but doesn't have all the answers about the day-to-day business. They are pretty quick with shipping, generally out within the same day or the next. If you priority mailed, you probably can expect it within a week to Quebec, regular mail more likely 10 days. Still better than a month + waiting for the slowboat from China.

Quad Tricks

My bumble bee has learned a new trick, it flies just fine then decides its going to flip over and drop to the ground. I have checked all the wiring and all seems ok. Is it possible my flight controller has gone bad?

Any ideas welcome!!!

Scott

Is it possible you could be having a motor dropping out? Does it happen at about the same time after startup? My suggestion would be to weigh it down so it doesn't fly, and set you power setting to about hover. Then tach or watch your motors and see if one is slowing down or stopping at what would be midflight. You could be having a problem with a motor or esc.

What did you re-solder?
Has anyone found an alternative prop to use with these motors? There was talk of APC 10x 4.7 fitting, has anyone tried these?

bq camera mountb

I just got my camera mount last night. Looks good. My quad is acting up again, think it may be a bad controller. Do you guys think I could go with the HK controller?
