I need new a very strong frame, that can handel crashes but also heavy lifting, mine frame i broke by a crash. I can fix it but still a weak point. I have motors that have a trust of 1,2 kg each. Also 12 inch props
Martijn...... The only frames I've found to take a real beating are the little Micro Quad's. Unfortunately, the larger frames by their very nature, have to be light, which makes them vulnerable during any "Unexpected Return To Earth".... Carbon frames are light, but tend to fracture on impact, and Aluminium ones simply bend!!...
Myop..... frames are the fuses..... in other words if your frame is tooooo strong something else will absorb the impact...... so my suggestion is buy (or make) a lightweight frame from aluminium..... aim for cheapness and availability....... most importantly protect the FC board..... I fly the 550s which are around $6 for a new set of sticks.......while the board is in an engineered flight container (which others may use to store stuff in their fridges with)....... motors..... 50/50 on impact.. props..... consumables...........
Hi guys, I new to the hobby and I just received my MultiWii PRO Flight Controller w/MTK GPS Module, can you please provide me with some kind of tutorial how to confirgure it if I need to?
Thank you and appreciate your help
Mate you have picked a non plug and play board which is not for beginners.... but seeing you now have it there are a couple of things you should be aware of....... the purple tab (files) section above has heaps of info. there is a link to a great set up vid called everything you need to know........ I have a few vid of this and a few other boards on my youtube channel (Moochasas)..... also there is a few ways to ask for assistance seeing we are not sitting next to you. If you need help ask here.... but please give us a 1-10 on what you have done and what the prob is..... finally dont be scared to ask Qs...... we are all learning and sometimes even an accountant has the answers............. so start reading and viewing and let us know your set up (450 quad.. HUGE XXXYYY motors,,,, escs are hhheee type etc)..... cheers.
Yeaaaa ..... that's what I call a great day .... Anywhoo ... 50's F here tomorrow ... maybe get a chance to try out the Talon (2.3) or the Alien (2.2) ... either way ... I need to get my flying fingers a little exercise with outdoor stuff ...
Vid it and tell us whats going on...... just finished editing a vid I did this morning showing what the RCrates RCexpo and the pitch/roll/yaw rates do......... thanks for posting J9er........also did some testing with the black 550 with 10" HQ's with a 3 & 4 cell battery........ awesome...........
Well its late and ive just flashed my board with 2.3 navi b5 baro fix ........configured everything............testing begins tommorrow .....really took my time so im hoping this one (i havnt tried it yet) works for me :)
I like both ... but prefer the stuff on the rocks better .... no flying for me then ... just watching the show with a wide smile on my face .... cheers fellow pilots ... may your Lipos last forever ....
Great unit, with all the features you need for your MC. And the price is awsome, so normally, you cannot make a mistke on buying this unit.If you buy this features in europe, you will pay 3 times as much or more. For the HK price, you get at least the gps module ( sometimes ) but not incluiding the board, wich has a big and powerfull processor also. So another time, where HK makes our hobby affordable. This is what the MC-Flyers need to upgrade their machines.

Received the board today from HobbyKing .
After reading about all the broken Micro USB connectors on other FC like the Crius AIOP , I had a good look at the USB connector BEFORE connecting anything.
The micro USB connector is soldered to the board at the rear corners and also has 2 tabs half way down the sides.
Close inspection reveals that it does NOT have a lot of solder to hold it in place and YES it is likely to break off without some extra solder.
The side tabs do not appear to have been well soldered, my guess, surface mount automated soldering has not applied sufficient heat to get the solder flowing well around the tabs which are part of the larger metal connector shell, using a fine tipped soldering iron, care is required specially on the side near the pin headers, re soldered the metal tabs and also the rear corners of the connector, I don't think it will come off now.
Do keep in mind that is a very small connector and the cable can be used to apply sufficient leverage to rip it clean off the board, no amount of extra solder will prevent that, so be real careful not to apply sideways forces to the cable when plugged into the board.
The quality of the board, the soldering of all the other components, I can't fault it, all looks excellent.
Lots of information now in the files tab for the product at HobbyKing.
I connected the GPS to Serial 2, and the flashing LED
