We have over 250 flights on our S800's which probably earn more in a week than you will in your lifetime of trying.
So I took a look at your pathetic videos of some very uninteresting trees etc and it confirms what I expected to find. Total rubbish from someone who has thus far contributed nothing to this thread or indeed any other thread.
This reaction is not the most elegant. Let it go.
Most of us know that your adapters are very nice, some of us choose not to use them. Probably not because of the quality of the propadapters, because (again) there is absolutely nothing wrong with them .


On topic...
I've seen these motors, and they wink at me "try us, try us":

or, for people that do not have the Danny adapters:


recommended ESC 40 amps, 390 Kv, up to 16*5 prop/6S lipo, 160 grams.
All very nice, but what I'm drooling about ... 6mm axis with big bearings .

Some thoughts anyone?

Hrm Roberts price must be a mistake http://www.uavproducts.com/product.php?id_product=116

It would be cheaper to buy from kopterworx (with out the VAT) for $880 or of course Empire Hobby for $800

I think they produce themselves, but I could be wrong. This is the site:

Mario (Flexacopter) already tested this motor (higher Kv), and the result looks very promising:
AQ32 / XM5015TE-4 test (10 min 41 sec)

I just got done testing my S800 after getting it fixed after a crash I had about a week ago. I upgraded to 5.16 and also changed to APC props with Denny's "cheap" adapters. lol. I have to say it flew better than it ever has for me. I didn't even balance the props due to wanting to get a flight in before dark and it has much less vibration than before. The motors also sound smoother. It also just seemed more predictable than before. I never felt as confident with the S800 as I did with my F550 but now I'm getting close. I did have the ESC out of sync problem but it didn't seem to affect the flight at all.

Robert probably includes the servos.
The ones for 800$ do not...

Found it on another site for 799$, but with servos add 299$.
That is consistent with Roberts price of 1098$

I simply cannot believe that the retract unit will not be sold without the battery tray, bipod landing gear, and whatever other components are shown in the pics that s800 owners already have. I mean what about those who want to buy an s800 and the retractable landing gear; they would have to buy the s800 with its stock landing gear and then buy the same gear again just to have the retractable unit portion?

Perhaps the retract unit and pictured battery tray cannot be retrofitted to the original s800 landing gear. Hard to believe, though.

To be fair everybody sells prop adapters for the S800 at around 60 euros. And not all of them are made by Denny. Besides are you the kind of person that buys something just because it is expensive and thus is good quality ? because if you are a have a slightly used Multiwii Quad for only 3999$. That's right it is top quality judging by the price

PS. I use Dennys prop adapters and i can tell you it works much better than stock props. So they are very good for what they are supposed to do...
