Quick edit of my first flight with FPV gear. All went well. Got it dialed in and she is ready for more long distance adventures.

Thats hard to believe! I have a F450 NAZA and have over 200 hours on it with 0 motor trouble. I guess I am lucky huh?. I have 20 extra motors still brand new in sealed bags and at $30.00 each they are not cheap

Raptor Flight Stabalization


Good to hear that the FY-30A is promising, I am interested in installing it on the Raptor, will post detail pics when and if successful.

Aplha1 your doing a super impressive job with the FPV. Oh and I see there are some new contributors too.

I have been fiddling around with an EasyStar 2 and my first airbrush attempt on a foamie.

Monitoring the thread, Thanks,
Tom
