What voltage do you read from your batteries? The batteries are listed as 3.7V Li-Ion, however, when fully charged mine all read 4.1 volts.

The reason I ask is that I've now had 2 drones go dead on me (thankfully replaced) and I can't think why. I'm really nervous that the same thing could happen again. The only thing I can think that might cause it is a battery supplying too much power.

So, my drones (x2) finally arrived (backed 23rd June, upgraded 24th July). First impressions - fantastic! I had a flight lasting about 60 seconds. Got the trim sorted, moved around a little, had a soft landing. Then the lights went out, and have never gone back on since. WTF?! I've tried different batteries, and the same result. I've looked at the board and it all looks fine and the drone has no visible damage anywhere. Anyone got any suggestions other than contacting EF? The other one powers up fine, but that's for someone else. :-(

There's been a lot of chat about 3D printing parts or custom frames. For anyone who has the ability to do this, what sort of printer do you have and/or would recommend?

Here's a question. If you backed early on, then some time later bought another drone or two and collapsed all drones into the same backer account, assuming all drones are dispatched together, where would you be placed in the queue?

To try to answer the constant question about "am I in the first 2000", this project had 1458 pledges by 18th June. By early 23rd June it was 478% funded, so the pot would have been around $358,500. If we assume that this was completely on drones (it won't have been, but the majority would at this point so let's say it was) at a price of $145 (I think, for super early bird) that makes it 2472. So I would say you'd have to have ordered by 21-22nd June at least to be within the first 2000. (reference: http://www.toynews-online.biz/news/read/micro-drone-3-0-smashes-crowdfunding-goal-in-two-days/044756 and also the email confirmation I got for my initial pledge)
