That was Quad Addict. No one has been able to reproduce his flex with out loosening the mounting screws. I do not have the problem with my quad or my DJI hexa.

I picked up a Black Vortex board and thought the DJI 550 might be a good combo. When I looked at the build manual for the 550 it appeared that 3 leads are connected to the power board???? Maybe I misunderstood the picture? Does the DJI connect differently then other boards? With the esc's I have on my existing quad, I only have positive and neg connected to power board and signals wires with one hot lead going to my FC. Same with DJI? Thanks.

The bottom plate of the DJI hexa plate only has a positive and negative connection for each esc. It also includes two pads for the lipo of +/-. The signal wires from the esc's go to the Naza/WKM without the positive lead, unless you are using the OPTO escs which do not have a bec.

Thank u.
I have the jakub frame today (990mm) !

Will the DJI HEX frame be OK to lift 3-3.5kg total weight?
And will it be big enough to use 11" props?

Go into the software and click on the Norm button (to the right of each slider, it will change to say Rev) on the TX Calibration screen and reverse the channels that are backwards. Click Write and you should not see the sliders move the correct way.

The material hasn't changed and the problem didn't go away.

Can you READ? He just posted the arms are VERY stiff. Grab a dictionary and look up stiff.
