    I got my Hoverthings FPV frame wired up this weekend and gave it a first flight. I had time for one battery before the sun went down. First off, the frame is great and I highly recommend it. I'll probably post some pics of the build once I get the last of the wiring secured down. It looks nice and had enough room for everything though getting the GPS in there is certainly a bit tricky. This is, bar none, the best flying copter I've ever tried, let alone built. The specs are below:

    When it first took off to a hover the gains were noticeably too high so I landed it and adjusted em down 5 points. It was perfect for the next take off. In fact, it was so level taking off and hovering that I thought I had it in auto-level mode. Seriously. It was hands off to more of a degree than I usually get even in AL mode with my Y6 or old quad. Hovering and flying is silky smooth and stable like nothing I've ever seen or flown. 4.6.2 is superb at initial test. If you are interested in an FPV rig, the specs above worked to an incredible degree for at least this initial flight. I'm super excited to get a ton of FPV flying in on my vacation in Utah next week now!

    It's late here and I need to go to bed but I did want to post this little bit while it was fresh in my mind. Anyways, have fun!
