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

Just fixed a busted SMA connector on my TBS unity pigtail, it suffered badly in a recent crash and split in two, nothing a touch of the soldering iron couldn't fix  :D

Very nice - it will be interesting to hear you opinion on how it flies compared with the frame you took the bits off as the two are quite similar except for the slightly different layout.
One circlip short of a quadcopter.
 1 lobe short of an antenna.

putting the 450 on top the arms are longer and the length is longer so i think it makes it a 550 measured the cable lengths of the quattro and there just long enough to reach motors

Todays work
bugger the lawns and house work  ::)

put on old motors to check out wiring and just to see how it would look new motors will take a week or so to arrive
FPV gear will go on after test flight

Also coming with motors is black spiral wrap to replace the clear

not so far( even flying round house got static and didnt go blue) but the screen is not my primary fpv i use video glasses for distance but the screen is handy for the minim osd info when armed and gps lock (my video rx has dual outputs) so when i can see everything is all set i turn off screen and use glasses

Some pics of the camera mount change to eliminate the jello

Also rebuild of the F450 frame with FPV for my son

The F450 will get the crius board once the APM 2.5 board arrives for the Alien X mode frame

Sorry to bump an old topic but, what settings did you change on the crius board to adapt for the other than x motors locations?
Friends dont let friends use NTMs.

Yet another bump for an old topic, how did the APM 2.5 go, settings etc. Many thanks for the undercarage tip. What's your arrangement for attaching the battery?
