This is the latest build for my DJI F450, flight after flight I ironed out all the small details, polishing things and this time its flying just fine. Nothing awesome, just a quad that works, reliably

You can see it in the air here : http://www.youtube.com/olivierc600

Specs :

- DJI F450 frame
- T-Motors 2216-11 900kV
- ESC DJI Opto 30A
- 3x batteries Dualsky 4S-2800mAh 5C/30C (flight time between 10 and 11mins).
- Naza-M + GPS
- Gropro HD Hero 2 + casing.
- Transmitter Futaba 14SG, in FASST 14 channels mode.
- Receiver : Futaba RX7008SB (not using the SBUS, do not bother, its not working right now, DJI said they will fix it).
- Propellers : Graupners eProps 10", or mix of both sizes (10" rear, 9" front), or 9".

Settings :

Gains : 140/140/100/120 - 100/100
Futaba 14SG timer : See HERE
Little change since this, the timer is now counting upward, instead of downard from 10mins to zero then minus.

Configuring the Futaba 14SG for the Naza : See HERE
And another change since I made this, I removed the ability to remotely set the gains, its worthless once you've found the good values.

Weights :

- Frame without battery : 860gr
- With battery, no payload : 1140gr
- Complete, with GoPro2 : 1320gr


Thats the normal setup, without the FPV plate, I finally realized I do not like FPV :

Few videos I made, "snow themed", lots of snow
1st if from my F450 quad, location is the Romeyere pass, Vercors mountains, French alps (near the city of Grenoble) (HD720) :

2nd is a skiing video, still in the Vercors mountains, a tiny and cool ski resort in the village of Lans-en-Vercors (HD720) :
(Even if you're just looking for RC stuff I think you should watch it because that was a beautiful day)
