    APM wobble in the wind.

    I am using a micro-apm FC on my S500 quad. Today while filming in 10-ish mph winds while in Position Hold my quad did some jerky wobbles at around 100 feet. It did it during a gust and it kind of felt like a mini VRS, but I was not descending. It was in Position Hold (a GPS Loiter mode) and I'm...

    Why aren't there any smaller X8s?

    I'm wondering why we don't see any smaller (300-500 size) X8 multirotors. Does a smaller build get less efficient on an X8?

    Sunglasses Recommendations?

    I usually wear my polarized Oakley's (because I am a brand *****) when I RC but their size makes them a little less than ideal for flying. What are you pros wearing these days and why?

    Lowest voltage per cell to protect batteries?

    What is the lowest voltage per cell I should fly at to maximize the life of my batteries. I just got some quality batteries in and I want to protect them. I don't want the science behind it as I have read many threads on it today on other forums. What I'm looking for is just the number that...

    How tight should I tighten my props?

    This is my first go round with something other than self tightening props. I have some Tiger Motor MT2212-13 motors and some carbon fiber props. Is there a rule of thumb on how tight I should get the nut on top? Also, all of my threads are clockwise. Does this matter?

    I understand that most pros use a log book to log all of their flights to keep up with maintenance, etc. What type of logbook do you use and what info do you put in it?

    S500 Quad - Recommend battery?

    I am about to the point were I need to think on batteries. In a similar but much cheaper build, I am using a HK MultiStar High Capacity 3S 3000 mAh and I'm thinking I want to stay in that same class but maybe in a Tattu or other very reliable equivalent. The following is what I already have on...

    X8 and Hex redundancy with pixhawk?

    I've read where several people recommend Octo, X8 or Hex for professional video because it gives some redundancy in case of ESC/Motor Failure......depending on the flight controller you use. Does the Pixhawk perform about as well as other FCs in terms of compensating and chances of getting your...

    FPV Monitor and TX recommendations?

    I have now finished the second evolution in my personal AP training. Evolution 1 was to buy some "fun quads" and learn to fly, maintain orientation, nose in hovering, etc. One of the most important lessons I took away from this was that multi-rotors sometimes just crash...don't freak out, just...

    Manual Mode? Atti Mode? GPS Mode?

    I thought I knew what these terms mean, but now I'm not so sure. Please correct me if I'm wrong: Manual Mode: Multirotor does not level out when aileron/rudder stick is released. Atti Mode: multirotor remains level unless input is given, but altitude is not maintained by FC. GPS Mode: Not...

    Which FC has best loiter mode?

    My next build will be an F550 and I haven't decided on Flight Control yet. Which one has the most solid loiter mode? Price is less of a concern, but ease of setup is a big plus.
