...a picture of my new DJI F450 Flame Wheel quad! It's a rather simple yet fun little beast with its KK2 board, Afro 30A ESCs, four 1800Kv D2822-12 motors (thanks, Armattanquads.com!) and four of APC's new 8x4.5 multirotor props. The radio, of course, is a DX6i and the receiver is a full-range AR600. That marvelous acrylic board mount, nylon standoffs and clear acrylic top cover were gifts from Chris Leroux at Armattan as a means of trying to mount the board to my old Rotor Concept HPQ1 frame.

Like I said, simple yet fun. It isn't anywhere near as nimble as my Armattan CNC 258, but it's no slouch with those high-revving motors.

Best of all, I already had the board, mount, male-to-male servo leads left over from the HPQ1, a new Deans Ultra-Plug, ESCs and receiver on hand. All I needed were the motors, props and frame and I got the latter two items at the local hobby shop.

Thanks go to multirotor genius "TheOne420" for fine tuning the board.
