Well my S500 PCB Arrived from EMAX this afternoon.

interesting whats the carbon rods in the legs for, wiring and to add a little strength? hopefully help stop them from flopping about.

wonder if it helps with twisting too.

Nice. There is something about a well presented product that oozes quality when you see it. 

@nub - The CF rod insert in the rotor arms is supposed to improve rigidity and strength.

@mm - Mine came by DHL, ordered Saturday, attempted delivery yesterday (Tuesday), rebooked for delivery tomorrow (Thursday)

I ordered two of these frames - DHL have not said anything about customs duty!  Weird inconsistencies ..

I am transferring all my electronics from the 450 Firefly (DJI clone) so the motors will be SunnySky 2212 980KV that I simply adore. They are superb!

After the Gimbal and GoPro I may have to up the LiPo to 4S though.  Thus far I have only used 3S for all my quads (even with GoPro).  The Tarot T-2D gimbal may just tip the weight over the edge for 3S I feel - although as a camera ship I don';t need big performance, its more about stability and flight duration.

Higher volts will also help with flight times too.

And I now have my delivery from EMax via DHL. Curiously they had the correct shipping address on a slip inside the packing. But the parcel was addressed to my billing address.

Yeah prob will put the ESC';s on it earlier  (HK Blue 30A flashed with SimonK)  and will put the Emax 2213 935 KV motors on it tomorrow and take some more pics.

Haven';t decided between a Naze Full with GPS or a KK2.1HC FC (Leaning towards the Naze to be honest). Got the bits on the way for a Mobius Gimbal (3D Printed) got the BGC Controller ready along with the Mobius and got a Boscam VTX/VRX on the way from HK and one of there cheap Google kits.

I also have a couple of MinimOSD boards as well but haven';t a Clue yet on how to use them But will do some reading on it and get that sorted a little bit down the road.
