I think you're doing it wrong.
Aren't you supposed to crash it into a telephone pole or something?
Looks good! Excellent job!

The fpv260 build aka murderquad is complete. Now time to tune it. Going for acrobatics. Anyone tried the stagility mode setup or the SL mix mode on Rc911. I am debating switching to RC from steveis so I can just use SL Mix mode instead of using the stagility/mix setup on Stevies

I've ordered several things from Hobbypower, through Amazon and so far I'm very happy.
Orders have taken 7 to 10 days to get to me, from China!
I might have a bad ESC so we may see how well customer support is at Hobbypower.

Going to try some more prop configs. I got 3 and 2 blade 5x3 5x4 6x3 6x45 on order. Whats your favs on  your 250 class and what are you fav pid settings. Leave a comment and help a brother out.

It has begone. My first quad build. Specs are:

fpv260 frame
Kk2.1.5 fc
Turnigy multistar 1704-2300kv motors
Afro 12a ultra lite escs v3
OrangeRx R615x (debating using cppm)
Turnigy Nano tech 1500mah (went to small I think gonna order a 2200mah just trying to find the best one)
Xt60 esc lower breakout( got the one from hk and converted it to 2mm bullets)

Anyone have experience with CPPM? I am wondering how I power the rx to bind it when using cppm.

.

+Fr. Robert Ballecer, SJ u inspired me with the quad epsiodes of knkw how to upgrade from my nano qx. but i got sick of waiting for the spec fpv250 to come back in stock. So in had to kick it up a notch. For really fun acro what prop pitch do u recomend? i ordered a bunch of 2 and 3 blade (your fav 😜) gemfans in 5&6 in multiple pitches.

Thanks and more to come

I will start with the results. Where to begin....I will start with I have lost 37lbs(Update 43 now). I can fit into slim jeans. I haven't been able to wear anything but loose fit since middle school. My physical endurance has gone through the roof and my body looks better than it has in over a decade. Last but not least by any means, I don't mind taking my shirt off anymore! There are so many great things about MELT. I love the social events, themed boot camp and warrior training. But most of all the people are great. That's what makes MELT so different, the community. It starts with the trainers. Their attitudes and beliefs clearly trickle down to the M.e.l.t. Community. The classes are always a blast and never the same twice. The leveling system they use for each exercise makes it easy for anyone of any fitness level to get start and succeed. I highly recommend MELT to anyone serious about their health and physical fitness.
