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

 ::) ~~ :rolleyes: :wack0

all parts from rc timer are in, postman rang the door this morning. Customs did opened the package but i guess they didn';t thought it was worth over 23 euro, so i got my whole quad out of china without customs.

now the build can begin!!

so prepare, questions will be on their way

Glad to hear you are sorted Marc now the fun begins  ~~

marckatzenmaier

fun was just for a brief moment, when i hooked the battery up, one esc started smoking, so i will have to contact rctimer.  :angry: :-/ :cry

for the rest, i think everything is okay.

Thats great news,I say well done you,its a great feeling when it all comes together,i hope you have many good flights,Marty.   :scotland:

Gaza07

Excellent Marc well done its one hell of a buzz when you get one in the air for the first time  :bravo:
It looks like it pretty stable and flies well but you will tell better when you take it out and get a bit higher of the ground, If you add some Expo to the transmitter on the aileron and elevator it will help make the small corrections less twitchy  ~~ Very well done Im sure we all look forward to seeing more videos from you  ~~

That looks really good for a first build - what flight controller is on that?

They look good  ~~ most people are using the turnigy nano techs 2200ms you would be fine upto about 3000mah, Im currently using 2200mah on y frames  ~~

here are some pics of my first build. when i got the parts, i just wanted to build. And when an esc is bad on arrival :angry:, it is not good for your heart  :banghead:
after a few mails with rctimer they send me a new one  ~~.
then with some help from a thread on another forum i got gps working.
now again hoping for some spare time to fly and some weather that will allow it.

Looks nice and stable except for the height, learning smooth throttle control takes a while and requires very small movements, are you flying with the barometer enabled ? flying with the baro on makes the throttle spongy, you should use the baro a bit higher and engage it and see if it hold height with out touching the throttle, although the baro you have on your board the bmp085 is not very good at it, have you got a small piece of open cell foam over the top of it to stop the prop wash from affecting it ? the videos you see of copters holding height at low level really well are prob using a sonar or some thing like a naza  ;)
