That's the exact setup I've been running. I've only flown it in stabilize mode so far (running 3 6s 5000mah batteries) as I am waiting for an APM 2.5 case right now before trying out the other modes. However, it was very stable for me in stabilize with the default settings.

https://vimeo.com/56610707 here is a flight of mine on the 800.

Can you post some pics of your APM installation? The flight looked very smooth.

Here is my S900 Clone setup with apm 2.5 rctimer clone. Next I will be adding FPV.


No issues with the frame so far it’s been great but I cannot compare it to a DJI frame. I love the frames with the built in PCB makes life some much easier. The only thing that I think could be improved is the arms. They seem like they flex a little too much but I have not had one break.

Nick,, I originally posted the question about APM on my S800.


What did you set your Roll_P at.....close to .15?


Thanks Jeff

Thanks for the video...let me know how the fpv setup comes out..kpc
I'm really interested in this too. I'm looking to buy an s800 for the build quality and lift capacity but I need the open source element of Arducopter. Did you need to do any tuning prior to this video at all? How do you power the APM from the S800? Does it have an integrated PDB or do you have to power the APM separately?



Not much tuning at all. Powered with a small 1500 lipo with http://store.diydrones.com/APM_Power_Module_Dean_Connectors_p/br-ap...

See my video above.

I am setting an s800 clone with apm2.5...could you describe your setup/PID s etc...regards kpc

What's the clone you are getting? Could you send a link?
