Hi maximus,

I think they are talking about the khz setting your esc, if your esc setting can run on 16khz, maybe change it. The dentist drill noise coming from the motor and esc running on 8khz.

exactly.

some esc's only allow 8khz which cause that ungodly motor whine. Your Aeolians (hobbywing Pentium/flyfun class speedo's) only allow 8khz if I remember correctly)
The Hobbywing Platinum pro's I use allow 12khz which quiets them down considerably.

And to add to that, flashing them with the Simon K firmware will allow them to operate at 16khz which is super quiet. All you hear is the blades.

Cool. Might have to do that if I use different speedo's on a future build.

Looking great. I'm looking forward to gettting mine. It's going to sit in my ADX-4 (soon to be X8) but first it will go into a cheap frame to learn the system.
Looking forward this 'position hold' stuff.

Ground Station for PC


I should be getting mine within a week.

I have an iPhone and I don't really want to Jailbreak it, or buy an Android tablet.

Does anyone know when the Ground Station for the PC will be released, as I would prefer to use this.

Seems like all the top shots were taken by MultiCopter. Watch at 3:20 you can see the shadow of the copter on the road. right before 3:20, you can see it being lifted up. Enjoy the video.

I'll gladly take the Veyron.

So, my YS appears to be arriving tomorrow. I'm sure most of the other pre orders already have arrived or will be shortly. Does everyone feel like they know what they are doing? I don't! :P

I sense I will be seeking this thread out quite a bit in the coming days.

There's a walkthrough in the settings menu called "init setup". Initial setup should take less than 10 minutes with the default PID settings. Just be sure to input the correct value for the magnetic declination in your area.
