    Weird Motor issue?

    Ok guy this has started happening recently. It happens without any input and when you do give it input the right front motor spins up much faster than the left rear and the quad flips. any help would be great. I have redone the firmware on the FC and still the same issue. Towards the end...

    Hello my name is Andres, I am building a quad copter that will weigh at most 5 pounds. It will need to fly a long way ( not sure but a mile? maybe more), but I am looking for efficient motors with a low amperage take so that the battery will last longer. I was planning to use a 2300Kv...

    How to choose a power system when designing and building a multi-rotor

    I hope this is the right place for this, first time in this forum and a noob at anything RC. Eric said in the AP show that he always builds his own multi-rotors and that it was a great way to learn about how they worked. That inspired me to start looking at building my own 500 size quad to lift...

    Challenge. Multi rotor in space!

    How high can you get a multi rotor to fly? Anything goes, GPS, radio control, timer, don't matter. Get it as high as you can and prove how high it went with telemetry or video. Can you beat a rocket? Do it.

    Variable Geometry And Adaptable Multi rotor Frame

    Foreword For a few days now I have been pondering and experimenting with the principle that is the Anycopter hub; It is a Multi rotor frame that is adaptable, expandable, versatile and simple. However, if I'm honest the Anycopter frame isn't good to look at. Therefore, I planned to make a frame...

    H-Quad motor choice.

    I have recently built a H-Quad (flitetest's) and I put some of the cheap 24gram motors from hobbyking on the frame however I have now realized that A they are vastly under powered and B that they are SHOCKING quality, there were little chips of aluminium in the magnets and some around the...

    Hi everyone! I'm new to the hobby and the forums. After watching both the Flite Test videos and my buddy's FPV videos I decided to take the plunge into the hobby. I bought the Syma X-1 just to have something to get the general feel for flying a multi-rotor down, and to have something...

    Hello, I'm kind of new at all this. I wanted to get into flying and wanted to build a multi-copter (used for arial video recording) and I'm not really sure where to start. Is there a cheap way to start, something that I can use as a throw away while I learn? I like recording high action stuff...

    Just ordered all the parts for my new Tricopter, using David's V2.6 design. Eventually I'll be heading into aerial video and FPV using a GoPro. And I also love the goggles for screens. Any thoughts on set-ups available in the UK?
