Just got finished assembling my new Delta Wing. It is a new kit from BEV RC. I have been looking for a good delta wing platform for doing so aerial AP (ortho maps). Most of the platforms that I have come across seem to have limited mounting space. Then BEV RC released their new X5 for FPV. I ordered it as soon as they were in stock. There is plenty of mounting space inside for APM and flight gear. I also picked up one of their nano cams, specs were pretty impressive for its size. The cam works well. Getting better image resolution than some of my larger cams.
I have never setup an APM on a delta wing, but anxious to do so. anyone know of any good resources for this? Wandering if anyone has any default settings for the funjet (which has been used with the APM before) that I can use as default settings for my X5, so as to shorten the tuning curve. I have been flying the skywalker for a few months now, and love it. The Skywalker parameter file was a little buggy, but we got it worked out. It has been an excellent platform for long duration aerial AP. I am hoping for the same with the X5, but it offers the advantage of being more portable. Any help appreciated:)

duh! found it in the wiki.
any thoughts on how to connect the APM in conjunction with the wing? Meaning the strange control surfaces.... I have seen a few people try it with varying success.
I found the tutorial for the funjet setup in the wiki. All of the controls work well. My first flight wasn't so successful though. Too sensitive when I flipped to stabilize mode. Flipped back to manual, but didn't have time to pull up to miss a tree. Plane is fine. I recently loaded the Funjet parameters found in the download wiki. I plan on trying them tomorrow. I will post results this week.
Did you get to fly a successful flight with the X5 and the APM?
Had three decent flights with it. Mounting the APM and proper balancing is an issue. It is very touchy on the controls, even after reducing rates. Been too busy with other projects lately to do further tuning. I have it hanging up right now in my shop. It beckons me everyday to take it back out. Hopefully soon I will be able to.
Can you email me the latest param file on you x5. I just got one and I think that your progress ould be a great starting point for mine. Plus any install pictures would be great. Thanks for your help.
can you also please send me your latest parm file,
Is there any chance that I could get a copy of the Skywalker 1900 param file that you've got?
