Or you can load the Flip 2.0 sketch attached. The mixer and PID settings have been loaded already.

That's one cool looking frame.

Won't the arms bend on impact?

What kind of impact? I've crashed a few times and no bend yet. But if it does I will bend it back. One made of g10 or plastic like a dji would break not bend. The aluminum frame has already performed well for others.

Would love to see the video. I'm a huge fan of my Armattan and see this as a potentially great (and cool) frame.

It might be a bit heavy, but I'd love to see a frame like this in Rhino liner.

We powder coated the first version (the prototype) in flat black and it looked a lot like rino liner

Trial and error proved this combination of props to work the best.
