Tbh I've been really busy, not had much time to fly anything and with conditions being crap, hopefully in the new year I'll have some new projects on the go, mostly to do with HAM radio, will certainly fly again soon. FTR I hate FB too   :D Merry Christmas

Im not sure I agree if you loose one esc you probably loose them all  :shrug:
you may also be inclined to fit it central on the copter right where the compass is  :rolleyes:

Yea it does it looks great  I'm just saying it could cause problems from a compass point of view  ;)
its like if you have a fridge freezer, if the freezer packs up you loose both  ~~ I've always preferred things separate ::)

I wonder if it's possible to flash these with the improved simonK Multicopter firmware. If it isn't i wouldn't buy one, simply because the SimonK firmware made such a positive difference to the way my quadcopter flies.

I'm flying using multiwii though - it's possible other flight controllers wouldn't feel the difference so much in which case this device might be of some help.

I agree with Gaza though - if one fails you can't do much except rebuild as a tricopter.
One circlip short of a quadcopter.
 1 lobe short of an antenna.

Well, I have bought 2 off ebay for £24.99 just to see what they are like. I think they can tidy up a build!

I am not too bothered about flashing them as tbh, they actually perform a 'filtering' job if the frame has vibrations due to the decreased response time.

You going to do a review for us Ice Im sure we would all be very interested in your results, like you say they do look neat   :bravo:

yeah looks good.  Be good to know how long the motor wires are.

As for 'your stuffed' if one esc goes down....well I have only had one esc die on me no sooner than 1 year of hard flying and I replaced all of them on this particular quad, for peace of mind.  I suppose there might be the odd one that goes dead after a few flights on some and if thats the case, send it back for another.  I would.

£29.99  is a good price too :)

my esc is just under my control board anyways, not seem to have any effect on my compass... then if you loose one esc you canot fly back anyways .... lol on a octo it's possible... probably :P
