Yeah, it works fine with spectrum. Just futaba/scherrer is an issue.

Tricopters Rule
Futaba always needs the throttle channel reversed on every Esc I ve ever used.

Futaba servo also rotate by default a different direction to JR/Hitec just to make you do some work.

Panzlflyer is the one.
Don't tell people stuff like that about me.
You will cause me to get more phone calls asking me to do stuff for free.
Chris is the man!

Maidened my reaper today. All went really well. It weighs in at 2.95kg, but you'd never know it! I can take a little lead out of the nose because it was a tad nose heavy so that'll help. It only took one click of down and one click of right trim to fly nicely.

Running 4S 8000mah, and used half a battery for 25 minutes of flight. It got pretty windy but it handled it fine (later in the afternoon a friend flew his in winds over 100km/h I kid you not. It took two of us just to hold his ground station upright!)

I got 132km/h flat out on the level @42 amps with a 9x6 folding prop. Interestingly this is 12km/h faster than my friend's 500 gram lighter zephyr with an identical set up.

I didn't brave the high winds a second time, but am happy I got a successful maiden done!
