I'm having issues with my ESCs. While calibrating them, they all go at random speeds its so odd....

Maybe I oversoldered one of the motors directly to an ESC and shorted them out?

I'm using a spider connector 4>1 futaba style connectors. 3 ESCs have only the signal cable. With these plush 6a's are you supposed to keep all 3 cables? The only motor that acts normal is the one with power and ground....

As for the frame, this thing is fantastic, best value and frame out there overall. Screwing the motors in is a pain using slot wood screws so if you can find phillips do that. I had to use brass. I need to switch all my standoffs and screws to nylon to put the quad on a diet as well.

My little piggy went flying today. 165 grams without battery. I don't have any small battery so I stuff a 2,200 mah 2 cell pack on it! It flew fine though.

It is so quiet compare to my bigger machines!!!

nice! Where did you get the prop adapters for the motors? I know they're heavy but with 3 blade props they're nice!

I noticed how quiet it is as well, my dog was confused because they're normally so loud lol.

Yeah I ended up ordering the adaptors and tri blades myself. I never noticed any problem using prop savers on the planes but I hear a lot of vibration with them on the quad.

Yes, they are a bit heavy and I have to drill out the props. I am waiting for the ones from eBay to show up. They will take a while from Hong Kong.

I started using EFLM1920s and I'm pretty happy with them. You do have to drill out three blade gws 5030 props to make them fit.

Got my frame (nice), my stuff ordered from HK and bought these and some extra 30mm screws. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Nylon-Hex-Sp...ht_4386wt_1163 . Looks like it will be awhile before my build starts. Looks like a good winter project.
