Thanks a lot sPikes777 and flypilot.

You have convinced me. I'm buying batteries 4S.

A question, 4S batteries, how many Cs? Is this enough?

Gens ace 5300mAh 14.8V 30C 4S1P Lipo Battery Pack




About de propeller for this frame and motors with 3,5 Kgrs (My ignorance is total about this):

- Graupner, APC or carbon fiber?
- 14" or 13"?
- Slow fly /electric?
- Any good web to buy your suggestion's propellers?

I wrote to foxtechfpv and they have answered me that the motors comes with long wire . He said me that I don't need any control system mounting plate and the above power distribution board will work

Thanks to all for your help

EDIT: I forgot to mention that I have 30A OPTO ESC DJI

Hehe, my intention was not to force you to buy 4s batteries I Use 25c batteries as that is more than enough for this application.

As for props, alot of props work great but I have had best success with the Graupner E props...only problem is that the are kinda difficult to source...

I bought mine here: http://www.electricwingman.com/prope...ktro-prop.aspx
Don't forget the spacers.

Regarding the propellers, I have not tried the Graupner E-props, but I have a very good experience with carbon fiber. The ones I have on my Gaui 500X (10x4.5) touched the ground on two occasions, and they are still working perfect. They are much more resistant than the standard Gaui props.

I have a turnigy talon hexcopter from hobbyking. I took it from there.

the top plate is this one. On the bottom I made a sandwich with fh-h800 bottom plate, two solid copper wire as power distribution to ESCs and the talon bottom plate. down below talon bottom plate is the batteries.

How was the test flight?

I am 90% decided on almost similar configuration as yours.
But i am worried about CRIUS aio pro, good price and good set of functions but i am unexperienced in configuring and programming so NAZA looks like a better choice for me as i need it for AP/V.

What do you think?

The flight were extremely good. It's very stable and flies well with 10x4.5 and both 4S 5000mah battery. It hovers at about 50%.

I had a NAZA on a F450 frame and sold it. It's lot easier than Crius AIO Pro. I spent like 4 to 5 flights just tuning PIDs and Crius AIO Pro configurations. I'm using megapirateng and it'll be harder to tune than naza. I have the extended board so I earn GPS, waypoints, RTL, etc... spending less than half than NAZA.

But, if more people use it, we can share our PID settings that will make easier everybody's life.

Hi, flypilot:

Thanks

Next is testflight and tuning of flightcontroll.

Using Graupner 14x8 E props on DJI 30A ESC's and 4s batteries.
This winter I will buy a big ship for photo and video and I have been looking at FH-H800. I am flying Naza on a 550, but for my new multi maybe I will buy the YS-X6 controller. Did you choose the WKM, if so, why, or did you already have one?

To get stable video I think I will buy a Hoverfly Gimbal Controller. Does anyone have experience with the gimbal output from the YS-X6.
