Mana 285mm "Vortex Clone"


Has anyone purchased this yet?

I can see it's available @ gearbest here: http://www.gearbest.com/multi-rotor-...pp_599156.html

I am considering purchasing it with a Flysky FS-iA6B RX for use with my Flysky FS-i6 TX
But from the pictures im not exactly sure what the pre run cables (2x 3pin connecters out the back of it) are coming from. whether 1 of them is coming from io 1 for ppm and the other is coming from io 2 for sbus??

Can anyone take a picture of the F3 flight controller with these cables? and also to see if its a custom or a standard SPF3 or SPF3 EVO




Drone Camps RC on youtube has reviewed one but has already pre-attached a Fryksy RX to it:

UPDATE: came across this for the older mana 295mm

So should be the exact same

Mine has arrived, managed to overlay an old cleanflight gui, and got it up and running. have you guys attempted to update to a later firmware?

also how do you enable acro mode?

Yes, I switched and updated to betaflight 3.1.7

Under modes just leave a switch position unassigned. that will be acro

I have attached a screenshot of mine the way it arrived. If yours is the same on aux2 switch position 1 (900-1300) is already acro, and switch position 2 (1300-1700) is angle.

Im still working on the tune for betaflight but my current pids fly pretty well, I have also attached a screenshot of them if you plan on upgrading. I'd recommend trying the default pids on betaflight after you flash first

Go see the ANDYRC review on Youtube.... he has some PIDS in the video and they are GREAT for this ship.
