Hi all!

I have an idea for a lounge/cigar bar, but have no idea where to start to make this dream happen.  I know liquor licenses can be a hastle, but I'm not sure exactly how all that stuff works.  Are licenses linked to a location or an owner?  If I purchase an existing bar/restaurant does the license come with it?  How would I then go about making the transition to my own place?

Any advice is welcome and appreciated!

Amazing display of multirotor finesse and versatility... Now if only I could get my p and I gains tuned properly on my tricopter... :P

So here it is... It's my first full build. Plenty of work left to do on it. The servo still needs to be secured better to the yaw and I'd like more solid mounts on the booms as well.

Learned the hard way not to maiden indoors... Also learned that the 8x3.8 props I had picked were not gonna cut it. Replaced those with some cheap 9x7s that all turn the same direction. It flies well as far as I can tell, but I don't.

Any tips on tuning my kk2?

How many of you fly multirotors?  I've been looking for a good multirotor-specific community and this seems to be the best one I've found.  The membership is low, but I'll bet if some of you join us we'd have plenty to discuss and explore.

Join me in this community! :)

This thing looks amazing!  I hope mine evolves into something this cool...
This one actually pivots both the front rotors to yaw, rather than the usual rear-only yaw.

As for mine, I've settled on a frame design and I've ordered a 30C battery so I'm sure to have enough power for a good flight.  I'll post pics and such once I have something to show for it. ;)

Hi all!  I'm working on building a tricopter.  It's my first multirotor as well as my first scratch-build rc, so I'm a little unsure if I got all the electronics matched up correctly.  Here's a part list:
* HK KK2 flight control board
* Spektrum AR600 receiver
* HiTec 35055S HS-5055MG Digital Metal Gear Sub Micro Servo
* 3x A2212/13 KV1000 Brushless Motor 13A max current draw
* 3x RC Timer ESC 20A Sensorless Brushless
* 3x 8 x 3.4 slow flyer props (1 counter-rotating)
* 20C 1300mAh 3s lipo

I'm unsure of a few details on some of the parts.  Especially the ESCs.  I ordered them from Amazon and they arrived unmarked except for the Skywalker 20A manual sheets that came with them, but you know what they say about assumptions...  Also, the battery is just one I had lying around.  I'm unsure of the math to see if it's enough to power the setup.

The three ESCs each have a BEC as well.  I found that only one BEC should be required by the KK2 board, which in turn powers the rx, but since they are linear BECs, I don't necessarily have to disable them when connecting to the KK2.  However, is it possible to use the power from one of the three to power some LED strips?

Any feedback is useful and appreciated!  Anybody have a similar setup?  Better recommendations?  Tips?

Oblivion was FUCKING awesome...  that is all.

Do any of you build/fly tricopters or quads? What electronics should I use if I were to build one on the cheap?
