As you can see it was super windy out and not something you would not usually fly a multi in. Once I get it tuned and get a good day I will get a better video up. Untill then here is a crappy one

That looked very good for a first flight Tony. I love how the large octos take off. Usually very smooth. You don't have to "jump" them into the air. Great job.

p.s. Heading down to Michigan for a NASCAR race in June. I'll finally have my passport so I may come a visit you some day. Gotta see one of those Wokongs fly.

If you don't mind me asking....

Where do most of your major RTF or ARFs come from.... Your website or locally?
I have not built any local. They are all from my website.

Cmon down and bring Nate.
We can have a mini multirotor meet.
As long as we go by the "you break you bought it rule" you can fly everything I have
We can even pound on my Flux HP and eRevo if you like bashing trucks.
Tell Nate to leave the guns home though.

hey tony, got rid of the wobbles yet?

I just did a test flight of the 1200mm octo with 14" props.. lots of wobble...

Robert says there is a new firmware coming and unless I read it wrong it sounded like some fixes for the larger machines.

I will try reducing my motor spacing down to 950 or so (smallest I can go)

I have my gains on a slider and ended up at 236 for basic gains... still had some wobble but I was in the garage... anyway hoping that shortening the arms will give faster reactions as I have found this to help in the past.

I will be using the following:

CarbonCore 1000mm Foldable OctoCopter Frame
Wookong-M FC
AvRoto 2811-14s Motors
Graupner 11" Props
Turnigy Plush 40a ESC's

Why are you using 40amp esc and not 30amp??

That's nice man, sound like you need to flash those ESCs to have a quieter motors.
