I figure the more this gets out there the more it can help others.

REMEMBER, NO PROPS while connected to the Assistant!

You will have a total of 4 mixes under CH5. The initial setting, 2 additions and one REPLACE (R) for the Fail Safe.
Setting the SOURCE as the 3POS switch.

Better look at a single setup for each mix. This shows the SOURCE and WEIGHT of the mix. In my version er9x 3POS is right after CH16 in the menu as seen here:

No other changes to the mix other then source and weight.

Build up of my FPV SpyderQuad (V1)

I purchased this through Eric (DiaLFonzo) as a flat (G10) parts kit only, no hardware, standoffs or other parts. I requested a 2nd lower plate to mount the power distribution board due to the confined space within the upper and lower frame plates.

Build specs:
SpyderQuad (version 1)
T-Motor 2216-11 900kv
Voltair PDB
GemFan CF 10x4.5 Props
FrSky V8R7-II Rx

225mm booms = 508mm front M/M, 355mm rear M/M, 381mm FM/RM

Seeing that the Naza would just barely fit into the frame running the .75" boom blocks from the original design I opted to buy some 1" tall boom blocks but didn't want to run through bolts and nuts. I decided to build off Eric's boom block design using my 1" blocks. I reamed the lower block holes to .1875" and pressed the .75" hex spacers in the blocks, then reamed the upper block to .201" to allow it to hand fit over the hex spacers, this holds the booms in place without screws in the top plate so you can work on the interior.

On the motor side I ordered Eric's .75" tall blocks so the landing legs would...Continue Reading
