Yeah it did sound terrible. I could see parts laying everywhere. Broken limbs and shattered bodies. Been there done that.

The joys of the scratchbuild




Built this one at the weekend, getting the kk2 dialled in and flys really nicely,really fun flyer,
Frame had a ton of twist in it till I CA'd the braces in the sides, it's rock solid now,
1175kv motors
18a funfly esc
8x4.5 props.
Thing hauls ass on 3s, is mental on 4s.
The kk2 board is really surprising me how well something so cheap can fly so damn good!!? Stick scaling upto 95!!!

Also rebuilt the tri I made a few weeks back, got it setup as an fpv ship, had a couple of good fpv flights till the turnigy servo started playing up so I bought a hitec 85mg and for some reason my Paris multiwii board won't play nice with it so it won't be flying till I figure out what's going on

Flys perfectly well with the kk2 but the wii board just goes into a flat spin on takeoff, bummer as I've got the GPS setup for it which is a nice addon for fpv

Looking good. Thanks for the videos. The camera mount is really stable. I'm looking at the go pro for my fpv setup. I've found a couple of different starter sets. The one at HK is only about $70.00. Thanks again.

Tom

Here it is. All done, but its really touchy. Too muddy outside to fly it. There are some little silver things on the board with screws in them marked ail,ele,rud. Is that how I tame it down a bit?

You want to adjust your rates... not your expo.

I fly with my rates set to either 20% or 40%, depending on how "Frisky" i am feeling at the moment.

The knobs on your board are to adjust the GAIN for pitch, roll, yaw.

Higher rates and some expo to calm it down are my preference personally.
You have rule violations Subaru? What you done?

i found it difficult to keep my aircraft level with expo... i would always over-shoot.
