Congrats Andy! You think he's going to be a fpv guy or more of a ap/av guy?

Nova happens to be female (don't sweat it , they all look the same at 1day old)
I'm thinking more FPV!

MRR site reaches over 215 page views today.
Not bad!

I have added the option to upload photos and videos to a user profile.
In due time, I will have a full blown social network site going over there.

Not sure i like the forum structure I have so far. Need to figure out how to get post responses with media attachments.

no flight test yet...
just snuck enough time last night to assemble. the props are on there just to make sure they clear the frame !

tonight , hopefully, i will have the MK FC dialed in and ready for maiden this weekend.

Its a tight little package...
I know what six of these can lift on my old f550. im thinking it should punch out like a rocket!

biggest problem right now is clearance for some landing gear... its all props !

Where do you plug the flight controller in?

Fortunatly after some extensive programming, these units become fully autonomous! Maybe needing repair now and again.

I finally found the time to take the CC3D that has been sitting on my desk for a month or more and put it on an F330 frame with a set of 1080kv motors. I have to say the 3D is performing much better than the OPCC I was playing around with last year, but then again it should the OPCC still had Dev firmware on it when I connected it to GCS the other night, have to give it another go with stable firmware and see how it works then.

The little 330 is an absolute rocket ship, I think I'm going to leave this one as-is and use it for racing, I'll just have to spend some time banging the sticks to get used to how quick this thing reacts. Since the F330 frames are $27 each I can buy a couple for spare parts and then go beat the daylights out of this thing, should be fun

When I get back from my trip to Vegas I should have almost all the bits I need to assemble the Delrin FPV racing frame, maybe I'll use the OPCC on that one...

Ken

P.S. Andy, on a frame that small the coax setup might actually make it slower than just going with 4 motors. The extra weight plus efficiency losses of the coax prop setup is OK on bigger frames for APV but I don't think it's going to be a performance enhancement with all those props so close together in anything other than straight up and FFF if at all. Get it flying and we'll see what it can do...
