In case anyone is looking for this information in the future, the tail motor and main motor connectors are 1.5mm bullet connectors. Just FYI, this is an uncommon size (2mm is more easily found), but they are available out there at places like Robotshop.

At the ESC the main motor wires are 18 AWG and the tail motor wires look to be about 20-22 AWG.

This has been reported before, but I will also just confirm that the servo and SBUS connectors are JST 1.25mm.

a video in which I fly and crash my beautiful orange OMP M2 ... but it will live to fly another day! Surprisingly little damage considering that it went tail first into ground from pretty high up. I'm getting better because of this model — not afraid to crash, which is what needs to happen to improve!

Hi, I am wondering if you also had problems with esc. During the third or fourth flight, the tail engine lost power. Omphobby sent me a new esc. The joy of flying m2 did not last long, today the main engine has lost power.

In both cases, the sound of arming the engines became very quiet after connecting the batteries.

Wow ... nice flying .... I haven't gotten the hand of extended inverted flight on any heli yet.

Well .... make sure to go back to that spot this afternoon and tell yourself not to try the same maneuver over after your tail blows out 5 min into your flight .... time travel is awesome for reversing crashes!

Great flying EndoDuskin!

You have extremely good command of all orientations!


You were up for a long time-was it battery death that brought your ship down?

By the way, what camera did you use?-your video is extremely clear!

Yeah u are probably right, lower battery and tail blow out too far too fast too low.

Finally, I get the shipping notification just under an hr ago. My M2 is expected to be delivered by the end of this month. Hopefully before the 28th since I'm going to Florida on vacation. Don't ya just hate when you order something, wait, then it finally arrives when you are on vacation? Then you have to rely on your Wife to keep it from the porch pirates (which means I will have to tell her it's coming) lol
