    A Little Problem with my First 250 Quad Build...

    Sometime last winter I decided to attempt to build a 250 racing quad. I'm a high school student, so I don't have much time to devote to this project, which is part of the reason it has taken me so long to get to the point I'm at now. So far I've encountered some pretty frustrating difficulties...

    Extra motors, multiengine projects

    The motors on my pumpkincopter are the 2212 1000kv orange cheapies, for now. As I look to upgrade the motors on my XJ470 in the future, the more powerful Multistar cans from that will probably end up on my electrohub (again, pumpkincopter) quad. I really don't want to have all those motors...

    PROPELLER EXPLOSION! too much power?

    Hey everyone, I am trying to get my f330 working, and it seems that the Emax cooling 2208 1500kv motors, were so powerful that they exploded all the 8050 props on my quad. My girlfriend standing about 10 feet away got stabbed with one, and i was literally holding the base of it, and didn't get...

    I have a Foxeer Monster v2 and a Eachine ATX03 transmitter. I can't figure out how to power the transmitter or how to connect the transmitter to the camera.

    FT Gremlin - modifications to the FT Crew's stock frames

    Has anyone done any special modifications to the existing FliteTest frames? I've seen people designing their own frames from scratch, but not much in terms of using the existing FT designs and printing custom mounts / landing struts and whatnot. The Gremlins are still fairly young, so I'm sure...
