Thanks Randy, I'm new to this and didnt know about that forum. I think it was a casual comment, not in that area. Lots of reading going on and my Arduflyer is almost ready for something (hopefully takeoff). I have 0 experience in RC, just a computer nut having fun.

Did you look at the buy, sell trade forum?

I'm already anticipating my first quadcopter crash. I saw someone wanting to sell their Arduflyer 2.5 & ublox GPS for a reasonable price and can't find the note anywhere.

Forum search, looking for "hexacopter", no results.  Something is rotten in Denmark.

Comment by Greg Jordan on June 27, 2013 at 6:10am

search is not working for me either. A simple search on the word "firmware" yields 'no results'.

What is the difference between:

1)"Arducopter 3DR Hexa B + Optional Electronics kit" from 3DR

2)"ArduCopter 3DR Hexa C - Ready-to-Fly*" from

I realize this is essentially the same company - but am wondering if the assembly is the only difference between these two items...

Anyone else getting "no results" when using the Search function on the discussion forum?

Sounds great Stephen. Thank you.

Wayne - you can find the pre-built hexes at  You will want the "daily builds" of the appropriate branch (copter, plane, etc)

Note that these builds are compiled and uploaded daily based on the current Git repository so you will have to make sure that use are using the latest codebase when compiling.
