I received the package fairly quickly everything seems in order.
I got the frame together with little issues. there was a bad thread with one of the aluminum risers. But I made it work.
Soldiered up the power distribution board and speed controllers, motors, and ran the configuration wizard in OpenPilot. now we are ready to mount everything.
Installed the electronics mounted the motors and cc3d flight controller. Just about ready to fly.
the maiden flight was a success! Very peppy.
By request here are some close up pictures of where I stuck everything.
here are my pid settings currently. I’m using position 1 and three.
I will be doing another video with some mods and eventually some fpv.
