Just a thought thats all, A weak point yes.......but an easy to fix weak point!!! go look at the video of it crashing, it went into the ground backwards from 30ft at 70-80deg fast!.
its only cost about 15 to repair, no more flying without lipo monitor plugged in.
Its not the flimsyness that bothers me about that carbon, its the fact that the frame wont sit straight. Mine wobbles all over the place and tends to "lean" when placed on level ground. This makes it annoying to start up. When multiwii starts up it needs to be level if you want level mode to work (and thus GPS hold, etc.) and so I am stuck trying to hold the frame level by hand since it wont stay level on its own. This is not the best startup procedure.

So Im gonna travel with my fy680 this summer, and I really want to get one of these cases Dean19794 linked to many pages back. But the guy selling them on ebay seems to not ship outside of the UK (id take shipment to the EU or USA). Anyone found something similar elsewhere?

I bought mine from this Ebay seller.
http://www.ebay.de/sch/pdp-trading/m...&_trksid=p3686

It looks like he is the same person who is linked in Dean19794's post . I dont know if he ships to the USA but he ships to EU ( Germany in my case ). Unfortunately it seems that he doesnt have any for the FY680 in stock at the moment.

Thanks for the links. That one from france looks big. It didnt look like it came with pick-n-pluck foam, though.

Ill keep my eye on that seller, sonic2005. Thanks.

Almodels, looking nice and steady. Why'd you link your landing gear? And what did you link them with?

Love the way it "jumps" to the music.

I love the LED's on the side of the motor mounts.
Could I ask you to show us some more, and explain how they are done?

Thanks
