Only hint is that the "Sail/Scout" fixed wing has to be able to lift 20,000MaH batt, 2500Mah batt, 1000Mah batt, FRS/LRS Tx & Rx-400Mhz Omni-directuionals under belly, Sony-S7 & pan/tilt gimbal for upper rear of CG all hooked up to head tracker Fat Shark Dominators with buddy glasses, Three "Mobious Cams" one under each wing and one under nose at 20 degrees down from horizontal. I already took a small deposit on it's construction. Anyway big project and cant wait to get started when I get back from Mom's place. I am going to be leaning on everyone, so start running now!!!,,,lol,,,,expecially Maj,,,,lol. Oh and maj,,,,once your done having fun with my ground sation,,,,can you ship that over to me bud????,,,,lol,,,later
Maj, and Mooch,,,,,did either one of you guys get your jars yet? It's been four weeks since shipment. I have to split to the west coast and will be back in a couple of weeks. If they did not I want to try again before fall shipping makes oversea's a pain. And Gordo,,,,I have a question???????? Resort wants me to have $25,000 dollar liability bond to do the vid. Does that sound a little exessive to you? Probably wont be over any structures,,,,just water and tree's??? Anyway I see the light at the end of the tunnel about getting back at creating again. I think this year is going to only finnish all my FPV scout ,,,,,, and then this year has to accomplish two fixed wing LRS/FPV "scout and crop damage" planes before Christmas.
Gents ... still need to get my feet wet with FPV ... soon with this set up is up and running ... got a second transmitter for the BlackEye on the same band ... so no change in the setup. But I like this flipping thing ... just balance the BamTer props ... with vids this time ..
Mooch Hox, GOrdy, Newey ... after a long period of delay, the Alien has been decked with FPV equipment and a basic ground station is in the making ... copter has the Red Pro MWC board, BLG, MinimOSD with HQ props. Ground station is 9 inch monitor and portable DVD glasses ... 4000 Mah power supply that should provide ample juice for monitor and receiver ... probably more LOS than FPV ... just to get the feet wet ... BamTer still needs a new set of props ... TBD for now ...
so i slightly fixed the problem. i changed out ALL the esc controllers and all the motors work fine except for the back motor. the servo looks ok but sounds like it it really working hard. Should all be fine tho. i purchased a new motor for this tricopter so the tail motor should be operational soon.
Tricopters are new to me as i usaly fly fpv on my quad.
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
