Have a look at Deet96 on youtube. He has done a lot of videos on the knife. Try that. I can't help much with the lost buzzer, I use a Loc8tor for my quads. Hope this helps.

I got the opportunity recently to go on an amazing 4wd trek through the southern tasmanian wilderness to the top of Pelverata falls in the Huon Valley region. It was a stunning day and great adventure with good mates made all the better with explorations with the Scarab Knife 270. Have also been playing with the new xiaomi yi cam that has just come out. Its almost as good as a gopro at a third the price.

Great piloting... tree/bush branches get me a lot more than they do you...

Ever tried a Mobius?

Do you think the xiaomi yi is better?

I didn't get much flying in due to needing to paint my house this weekend but I did get a sneaky flight in whilst waiting for paint to dry. I also tried some HQ5.4 bullnose props and man they really aren't very balanced. I don't normally balance mini props but these ones really had to be.

Loving my Scarab Knife. my best 250/280 class frame by miles...

Looking to update the controller and noticed this one at an awesome price - they look like they are the new rev with a diode for blheli and 16mb for blackbox which is what I'm looking for for some testing. Just wanted someone to confirm.

Ok guys, if you haven't upgraded your knife to the 2206 Race-R motors yet then get on it. I now have the need for speed. Combined with the 60C New CarbonBird Race Lipos it is one quick combo. Caught up with a mate a while back and this was the first real time I had gone out with this setup. Love it.

I drive past this spot everyday after work and have never flown the Knife there till now. Awesome spot with a good variety of trees and obstacles to keep you alert. By the way....I am really loving Betaflight. If you haven't tried it then give it a go. Who here has tried it. Would be great to hear what you think?

Sweet flying - loved the drop downs on your Knife270/Air32 at 1:58 and 3:07 - very smooth Greggsy ! Those 5x4.5 are the best match for the Red Knife too for those vertical 3D freestyle moves

Well, it took some late nights and some guess work but it's mostly done (no balancing of props or motors nor pitch setup yet) but the bulk of it's done now.

I enjoy but hate doing this because I end up being so pedantic about wiring and how it all looks. I think I got there in the end, I just hope there won't be any EMI problems with my lay out.

The Scarab Avatar is by far and away the best looking Tricopter out there by miles, Quinton has done an awesome job with the design of this, it's my favourite looking multirotor of anything out there regardless of how many motors, been wanting one for a long time.

Also have to add to that, the service and support from multiwiicopter has been amazing as always, really good to have an independent store like this to rely on when they've routinely gone above and beyond the sort of customer service I usually get, especially as someone who has worked sales a lot and is routinely pissed off at salespeople or companies giving me service so far below what I would normally have offered myself.

Anyway, this should be fairly visible in the air, if I can't tell it's orientation there is something seriously wrong. Mind you, when I picked up the LED's for the front headlights, I tried two; one of them was so bright I was blinded for a good few seconds, decided that while it would look cool to light up the entire neighbourhood, being frequently blinded might be detrimental to being able to fly.

Just hope I don't smash it all on my first few flights (good chance of that)
