guys, I did some test flights with my Ecilop today. It was flying nicely and stable, but I got quite a lot of vibration in the video.
I have balanced my props, but I haven't balance motors yet - does it really make so much of a difference?
Thx!

I had big problems with the landing gear amplifying the tiniest vibrations
this ended up in big vibrations on the center plate
I removed the landing gear and all was perfect...I ended up building four single leg landing feet out of plywood

Hi!
Here are some pictures of my ecilop.

Some mods I made so far:

- Use of the sony nex camera attachment with a panasonic Lumix GF2 (yes it fits, with some tape to adapt the right diameter wich is like 1 mm diferent).

- Use of the xaircraft landing skids. With some mods in the landing gear it seats ok. I drop it from 30 cm high push it down and it keeps there. :-)

Soon to get airborne again. I had some motors problems, I'm waiting for some new to come (maybe tomorrow or monday). These 2839 (sk3-750) have some noise issues and give vibration to the camera.

There you have.

Maybe I will drill a couple of holes to the frame to be sure it holds perfect.

Intro and Nex-5

Just thought I'd say hello - I'm a quadcopter noob and have ordered an Ecilop frame after a huge amount of research. I've been ploughing through all the posts here and trying to get a list of parts to order and checking ebay for a Nex-5n. I stumbled on this post about hacking Sonys if that is of any interest
