First flight and ready for FPV

of my DialFonzo Spyderquad-DJI upgrade body.
this was just a quick flight no PIDS have been tuned yet
and it still flies great. As soon as it is all tuned up on goes the FPV gear.

I also added some photos with all of the FPV gear installed


Quad Dial_DJI (1 min 32 sec)

I just had to tune the pitch by it self. I had to increase the I to (.41) from (.30). Much better was pitching up on me when I would pound on it. Like a big plane!

Check my blog for more pictures and ther will be a detailed review of this kit.

Okay, I think it is a prefect setup now.

No more un-wanted pitching up.
I can only be outside for about 6 mins. It is 100F here in Portland.
Well it is by my house.
I don't want to loose any more batts today! I puffed one this morning.

Okay after having this kit for a week almost. I must say something.


On the first flight it flew awesome!
I just took same Quadrino Multi-wii board and didn't change anything.

One of the things I notied about the DJI-Spyder is it is much easier to see.
With the front arms longer spread apart farther than the back. It give this quad a different look.

Also the quad feels bigger in the air than it it. It flies like a 800mm quad.
But is agile like a 450.
That right there just blew me away.
I want you guys to get this part.
This thing is as smooth a 25% airplane.
Flying long lines didn't seem like it did with the F450 kit.
I found myself correcting less as the wind did't have the same affect it did on the X frame.

It is much easier to see, even at night with a few lights on.
I did some striaght line and it tracks very well like it did, on the F450.
Even with in Fast forward flight!

I did forgot something about the Spyder, it is wider or longer on one axis. Which means the pitch and roll PID will be different.
Which it seemed fine untill I got out to the field to beat on it.

Once I got to the field I was very happy to see no other fliers around.
Just me.
So I starpped in a battery and starting darting across the feild at about 50 mph and it tracked better and there was more wind.
It is like it didn't even notice that there was more.

Now when I started turning real hard I noticed that the nose was poping up and get almost uncontrollable.
I did that the rest of the battery pack.
As I was going home from having fun. I remembered I didn't make any changes in theMulti-wii GUI.
So, I figured I was going to have to adjust the P and the I. Because the rear arms are closer together than the front ones.

You put extra holes in your frame and you think it's not a copy/clone of the TBS Discovery. You are kidding right?

In what way do you think it is not similar?

Putting extra Holes... ?
The frame don't have the same dimensions, placement etc.

Both Spyder in design and use DJI arm.
Those are the only similarity.
