Gaza - can you make the subject line section in the forum topic list wider? It's cutting off the subject field really short.

Just had a thought, even with all the crashing I've done, I haven't bought any replacement props in over a year ~~

If someone throw's a stone at you throw a flower at them just remember to throw the pot with it.

Started the build process.
First of the six arms, I used callipers to insert centre standoffs as instructed by on-site build video. Must say impressive quality and feels well strong. So glad I got this..  :cool:

Just put Aeroxcraft landing gear onto the frame, had a slight mod to do but Andrew from http://www.hexacrafter.com/index.php sent a scaled CAD drawing to drill the 8x3.2 mm holes.  Bang on! Used the extended carbon rods supplied with HC650 to get the gimbal out in front of the props..

Thanks Micky, Andrew is a flyer that decided to create his own bird went all down the routes of looking into well known frames but with cost and re engineering to fit components so he made his own. He';s done she';d loads of research into this.

Just set motors up all running smooth still need to connect to assistant software and tune in. Can';t wait misses has me laying tiles at mo got to keep her happy as I';m sure I will need to spend some more money on stuff lol
