I have done Dynamic Soaring in over 55mph, and quad flying in over 25mph with the right equipment.

Broken props are part of the process  :D It's amazing how antennas can find their way into the props  :D

Well I survived my first FPV flight!... my props and receiver antenna did not  :whistling:

Getting to like the CC3D

Previous topic - Next topic


Having had a fun little 450 quad with a KK2.0 on it for flinging about, I decided to try the CC3D about a month back. Have to say that my first impressions weren';t great. It wasn';t nearly as simple to dial in as the KK2.0.

However, a month later, and a fair bit of experimentation, and I think I';ve cracked it. Finally getting results that are smoother than what I was getting with the KK2.0, and if feels lovely to fly. Really happy with it!

For all folk talk about fancy carbon fibre frames as well, my wee cheap Chinese frame (DJI F450 style) and DJI 2212 motors can actually motor along not badly!

Now if only good weather and free time would coincide. It started raining again half way through this afternoon';s flight!


That does look very smooth and controlled.

I never had much success with my CC3D - but I think it';s mostly because I have the multiwiis going so well that I';ve got lazy and haven';t out enough time into getting the CC3D flying the way i want it to.

It seems totally different with the CC3D in the way you put expo on the transmitter instead of on the flight controller as with multiwii.

Any tips on tuning the thing?

Eh you do ?   My expo on MultiWii is 0 and I set it on my Transmitter ... I can change it that much easier :)


Allegedly on multiwii you get better results (better resolution) if you enter expo on the flight controller rather than the transmitter. But I am sure both approaches work fine.

In this example;

I have my expo set to 0.51 which is quite high but works well with the rates the way i have those set.

I';m finding for my style of flying (fast smooth rather than flips etc.) that I';m having to dial down the P gains a lot and up the I gains significantly. I';ve got I gains around 2-3 times my P gains (different values for each axis due to weight distribution).

I found that on the KK2.0 I could get lovely smooth flight with the same kind of setup but struggled to get enough control authority. Much better with the CC3D, so if you';re willing to spend the time, I do think it is worth the extra money.

I`ve been flying OP almost since I started.
The CC3D is superb.When my 250 parts arrive I will be trying the "rattitude"  mode  for some flip action.

Heres my CC3D Disco blasting around  yesterday::):

"Roads? Where we're going, we don't need roads."


Pretty much my experience too, though I haven';t had much chance to get out and fly it, just a couple short tuning sessions.

I setup the pots on my Tx to adjust the gains on the fly, that aspect was better than the KK2, however you still need to drag it back to the computer to change the gains that the pots adjust so can only adjust a couple gains between trips to the computer.

I just did the whole trailing back and forth to the computer, trying to judge improvements each time, hence it took a while. I do love the KK2.0 for the speed of changing settings between flights, but I think the CC3D seems to be just a tiny bit better handling once you get there. That said, a huge amount of fun can be had with the KK2.0 for the price!

Being flying op cc3d for a few years now and love them. Did a lot of head scratching at first but got use to the tuning after a wile and find that the bluetooth modules help when tuning so there is no physical connecting and therefore can be tuned live! Lots of great boards out there, going to try the naza 32 in my next build as they seem to be a smooth flying acro fc!


Yep the Naze has my attention for a future build but I do like the cc3d software etc. No reason to upgrade because the cc3d does me perfectly. Have to admit I have a slight itch for a mini which could result in going for a naze board.
