Gravity sucks :)
I bought the graupner & the spacer above, but the diameter of the spacer is a bit bigger, should I sand the spacer or insert it with force?

No way to use those props without MK Propeller mount 5mm?
They are out of stock (and not so cheap).

I don't know, since i haven't received motors and props yet. But i did have some problems with getting the apc 10" props to fit on the lower part og the turnigy motor hubs, I used 2x nuts on the hub, and screwed down the propeller onto the hub by applying force to both nuts at the same time.(no damage to the threads - if i used only 1x nut, the hubthreads would get damaged)

Hopefully there is someone with a more easier/clever idea on how to mount them

I have no idea dragant, im not familiar with the mk motors. But i do know there was someone who mentioned that another brand hub will fit the mk motors.

The info states "Suitable for MK2832/35, Roxxy (2824-34, 2827-34, 2827-35) and compatible AXI motors"

Im not sure if these will fit, but this is what i found after a quick search.

I am using these with my Roxxy's

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...6719&aff=48996

I had to use the screws that came with the roxxy mk mounts for the EPP props

and also reem out the center hole a tad to fit over the roxxy's hub.

for under $2 each, the mods were well worth the time

Thanks robin4 and Ryan but those are also out of stock
Does anyone actually compared EPP 1045 and Graupner 10x5? Are those Graupners MUCH better?

Can someone tell me if this is normal.

On my okto all the clockwise motors (1,3,5,7) are much hotter after a flight than the other four motors (2,4,6,8)???

This does not make sense

Could it possibly because its compensating for yaw? Would make sense that one set would be operating faster than the opposing set.

I really like that I can concentrate on framing and not on flying, when I have to shoot pics!

The shot themselves are quite boring, but heck, it's a test..
I totally agree with you man.
Here are some pics from my Hexa and canon S95, with the help of fatsharks and mk , everything is possible

Curious. I have a lot of problems with vibrations and the S95 seems to be amplifying it. You have used the go pro for your vids there, right?

How does it look when you use the s95?

Eventhough I shoot with 1/1000, 70% of the pics are motionblurred. Sucks! Will balance the motors today and see if that helps...

until now i took nly pics from s95 and it is crystal clear , i shoot only with AH and PH engaged.didnt try s95 video yet. And yes pics with S95 and Vids with Gopro
i found a old hands free wire from HTC mobile, and strip it , this gave me live video from s95 and camera triggering.

if you see my maiden flight it is with unbalanced props its is terrible!!! after i balance the props everything fixed, what do you mean balance the motors?

I haven't posted a video in quite a while. This is a video I shot this week of a friend's very cool "Tram House" out by the lake. The only way to get up to the house is via the tram. Very cool place. Incredible views from the deck.
