I have managed to purchase this quad copter kit from another source but I am very interest to know which landing gear is shown in the last File naza Lite It looks very sturdy and as a beginner will suit my purpose. Have also purchase a 525 frame to begin with and will probably use the landing gear on this.

This frame is still going rock solid with the ultra cheap 5$ donkey motors ... even in a strong wind doing UAV 125m up in the air

I would like if it is possible for you to tell me what HK gear you used in this model. I am waiting for this to come on line again and then I will buy 2 frames

I'm using the cheapest donkey motor: ST2004-1550kv, with prop adapter: PRODUCT ID: PA-3MM-5MM-D ... props are props are 8x4.5 3 blades. Battery is fine with 2200mAh 3S even with my brushless gimbal with Mobius. ESC I'm using F20A reflash with simonK. It is not a acro platform, but it does work solid for aerial video ... and possibly it is the most stable copter that I did build up. I did use different control board on this, currently using KK2.0 running MultiWii 2.3 with GPS ... but any control board will do the job.

Really good and well designed frame, bought 2 and spent ~2-3 hours to assemble frame. Very convinient construction, i embedded 20A ESC inside arms and used basement for power distribution system. Assembled copter looks very nice, i didnt fly yet - trying to configure ardupilot, telemetric etc electronics :) Also i liked plastic screws :) really.

Great Frame, Fantastic Price - other Chinese suppliers is asking $ 80 for exactly the same. But landing gears are very poor. Mine broke on first landing and it was not very hard. I will make a set of new landing struts that are are mounted to the base of all four arms. Will attach a picture when it's done. Also camera mount should be further down so that you can put battery in between camera and underside of frame. Will modify this and file a picture accordingly

Yes, this is a great frame to start experimenting quadcopters with. I've build mine with 100pcnt HobbyKing parts, except the control board (= FY90Q)

* 4x CF 28-22 brushless 1200kv
* 4x Turnigy Plush 18A
* 4x GWS HD8040 3-blade (cw & ccw)
* OrangeRx Spektrum DSM2 6ch satelite
* Zippy 3cell 2200mah 20C
* F022 heli landing skid (more solid)
* XT60, 16AWG wiring, black M3 Hex bolds & locknuts, etc
* Total weight : 850 gram

The pre-cut ply wood made the assembly go very quickly and needed just a little tweeking. The CF 28-22 motors are great (you need to dril new holes in the arm) and in comination with the GWS HD8040 3-blade it give loads of thrust. I choose the smaller 8040 3-blades because they rev-up more quickly during descent-breaking. Please, note to ballance them ..

Had 6 flights so far with /- 4 minutes and will try 4000mah later. 1 hard landing but the ply wood frame construction can handle it easily. Ordered another frame for spare. I thought to use this frame just once or twice to get a feeling about quodcopters before it crashes but it looks like I will fly this one longer and wait before I start building an DIY alloy frame. This ply wood frame is good for an incredible price !!

Will post a vid later :-)
