I haven't received any tracking info yet, do you usually send that?

Also gonna need instructions on best stick scaling for rookies......

Thanks,

Hi,

I did send the tracking info but upon looking into this I sent it to MichaelL and not Michael L. In other words, there is another user here who has the same name as you but his user name doesn't have the space between the first name and last name initial.

Sorry about that. Will send you the info right now.

Best,
Chris

Thanks for all you do Chris. And thanks to all you regulars for the help and inspiration on this thing. Now I just have to keep myself from catching the multirotor hoarding bug that Bryan caught! My wife will leave me for sure if that happens. WTG Bry on hitting the marriage lottery! Ha...Later guys,

Wow. That looks amazing. You are building a pretty nice inventory of products. I hope the webpage/storefront works out even though this is one of my favorite threads on rcg. It will definitely have to continue here or in the multirotors thread. Really great work again, Chris.

That is a fantastic build whats you talking about? Orintation is a funny thing, you practice and practice and think I will never get this, then all of a sudden it just becomes automatic and you can do it without even thinking about it, your not even sure when it happened. Good luck.

nice job, that's a good way to orient the battery wire @ 90 deg. from the lipo, that's how i'll do my 258.
@ Chris, the bullet holder is a beauty, that'll look sweet on the workbench.

Thanks, guys. I love this quad. I did have some semi-decent ability with the mqx as far as orientation goes but for some reason with this as soon as I start to turn it i wig out and start to lose it...lol. Nerves probably. I'm sure it will come back to me.

Oh hey; where do you set the low voltage alarm on the kk2? I know I saw it mentioned somewhere but i can't remember where. Thanks.

When I first got my armattan I had some problems with orientation so I added some more color to the quad so I could tell the front from the back. This has worked well for me.

I had the same feeling. In some of my flights/ videos managed to get into some great loops and even reasonable 8 s. Still when the v929 turns its no big deal. When the armattan turns my heart rate goes up. It feels so much more serious!

That is Genius! I want one for sure Chris. Really nice work. Do you still have that video you made on how to solder these? If so, you should post it for these guys. Helped me tremendously.

I was having some trouble soldering and Chris made an excellent video on how to solder bullet connectors.

Now I am a soldering machine thanks to Chris!
