I have, I think mine is all over the place, maybe I just need to re-calibrate it.

Hello CWood,
I have received the mine last week on May 27, so I think that this is the latest one...
See the CPU below and the I/O board:

We'll never stop. 3.2 has some nice improvements to feel in manual flight, and smoother auto mode options (spline).

But those basic features are becoming quite mature, and people are moving onto other neat things. Like integrating vision systems, LIDAR, etc. I don't think you'll be finding that on $300 Chinese quads... at least not for another year or two anyway.

Hi Guys, I've just received APM 2.5.2 from Banggood. It is standard APM FC (not 2-layer). Can you help me how to connect rear leds (red/yellow and green) to it, please?

Thanks bluelightning Now both blinking, even with GPS fix, and no yellow light even if I moving it. Should it be like that before calibration or something is wrong?

Received mine Sat, opened it tonight. I have the one with the red FC board. It also came with the charger that cant be used in the states. Is the kit suppose to come with a adaptor so I can charge the battery?

Oh CX-20 gurus.
I have read this entire thread and am now caught up. I think....

I was planning on buying the Nova PnP when its in stock.
I was looking on HK and the walkera 5200 mah battery looks like its just a tad to big. I was wondering what the battery compartment mod options were looking like?
I like longer flight times (15 mins ish) for FPV horse play. But I couldn't find any pictures of the area besides some of that poor guys demolished cx-20.

Do any of you have plans to add a bigger battery?
Would adding a 4000-5000 pack that sticks out the back throw the CG way off?

Hello Leno1978,
For the first time, you need to do:
  1. the radio calibration,
  2. the ESC calibration,
  3. the magnetometer calibration,
  4. the accelerometer calibration,
before to get the GO for launch
If your connect the Mission Planner, you will see some messages warning on the HUD display about this (safety warning messages...).
I recommend to read the tutorial about this at:

To be honest if you're using this thing for aerial videography there's really no need for longer flight times, even with mine fully loaded and getting only 6 minutes safe flying I still end up flying around aimlessly for half of it, the trick is to plan the video footage you want, set a flight pattern to acheive it in your head and go for it, you'll be surprised at how short a flight time you'll need, you'll also be extremely grateful and want to buy me a beer for saving you having to wade through countless hours of useless video on your PC to get to the good stuff

Just look at the films, tv and adverts you see daily, see how many seconds of uncut footage there is at a time

But I am not..
I'm looking for a smooth flying gimbal ready fpv ship.
Apparently I'm in-capable of building one.

I know exactly where you are coming from. I can rebuild a dang engine and transmission just fine but can't get a jello free video feed out of my 550. I get mad every time I see an awesome video made from a gopro and a phantom.
