Great thread with lots of great information here.

I want to give a big shout out to Tim Nilson for not only a beautiful product, but the 1st class customer service he has given me, whilst considering the purchase and setup on the QAV500.
When you are located on opposite sides of the globe and on vastly different time zones, that can be difficult, but Tim has been superb.

I have to also confess I have been inspired by the work of juz70. Like many of you I am sure, I have watched probably all his videos, some several times. Clearly a proficient pilot, but also has the eye of a photographer (which is my craft / trade). Big respect from me to him.

I am a fixed wing guy who has done a fair amount of FPV work, but have only just decided multi-rotors are the way to go for high quality aerial footage. My lady very kindly bought me a Flame Wheel 450 with Naza FC and GPS. I built it less than a week ago, went a flew it and knew this multi-rotor business is for me. Its a great machine, but in my opinion not for achieving high quality video.

My research led me to the QAV500 and I ordered it and all the associated bits / electronics today. I am real busy at work in December, so it will be a Christmas and New Year project for me when I have a few days off, but I am super excited about the build, getting her up in the air and most of all, sharing some videos that I create.

Cheers.
Thanks for your support. Glad you got the frame! Enjoy the build and good luck for the maiden.

Hi Guys,

Can somebody please advise the max battery dimensions that will fit into the QAV500 please?

I am about to order some 4S batteries and want to make sure they are going to fit, without modifying space between the plates etc.

Thanks.

I don't know the actual dimensions but I do know that a 4s 5000 zippy compact pack from HK is a snug fit.

It looks like you had the place to yourself.

Nice video. It must be hard to come back to reality after being fed grapes, and fanned with palm leaves all day...
