Sure. But basically, all the subjects are getting cut off.

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

Phils quads

My first quad was a 450 RTF with an Cruis AIOP board but i was eager to build my own as I felt i had missed something.
I transfered all the bits from the 450 to a 500 reptile frame which is ideal for mounting a GoPro camera.

500 reptile frame:

With the AIOPs GPS and Barometer i thought that would come in handy for the aerial video and photos.



The 450 was finished today. Using the old 450 v2 frame and a KK 2.0 fc board flashed with the new v1.5 firmware.



Theirs are step by step threads of the flashing process and the quad build.

Looking good.. its a great frame for the money... vey tidy build..
Just make sure the FC is in the centre of gravity.. or it will feel pitchy..
I am running 9" props mine.. which feels more locked it... and gives a bit more space for the Gopro on the wide setting.. flies great on 10s though as well.
Also managed to keep my gopro in its case btw..  have now used a tripod mount and drilled a small hole..   even with the extras weight.. still have to slide my 3300 3s forward a bit to balance it.

I';ve got the FC mounted on the front holes should i move it?

My CG was just where to two slots are on the top plate..     use a piece of string from each motor in a X and will give you rough idea..
Ideally you should slide your battery back and forward to offset the weight of the cameras to maintain the CG... I tend to fly with different kit.. so I hold the frame with one finger either side.. and adjust the battery position to make sure the CG is where the FC is...
