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

F800 Folding Wings! - My new build

Hi fellow multi-rotorists!

Just thought I would post up my new hexa-build, which uses RCT800 arms on an F550 hub assembly. I';ve mounted the arms on some custom made mounts that give the arms a 10 degrees dihedral (as the DJI S800), and also foldable for ease of transportation. At the moment the arms lock into place by tightening wing nuts but I would rather have a quick release mechanism such as you find on cycle wheel hubs. If you have any other bright ideas I';d like to hear from you!

Here';s a few photos of my new hexa.....








Stock DJI F550 3S 5000mah LiPo's.  AeroXcraft legs and Flyduino gimbal, Lumix LX3. Aurora 9 radio with telemetry.

What springs to mind is using a ball catch, keeper on the end of the arm and catch unit on a pillar behind it you may need to chamfer the end(s) of the arm to miss the catch but it should work provided you pick the right strength catch.
Another idea is to use a dowel pin which goes through the arm into a pillar with a matching hole for it to locate into.
I think..........I think I am........therefore I am.............I think!
