Hi Chris,

Thanks for your speedy response. I purchased the 3DR ArduCopter Hexa-C Ready-to-Fly. It is all new to us here. Yes we purchased the Spectrum DX7s, it appears to be unbound as it is not showing up like in the attached Connection.bmp.

Need to know how to do this. Has DIY drones done this for me? Maybe I am missing something.

Thanks

Thomas

Many Thanks

Thomas, do you mean you bought it with a Spectrum RC included, and the transmitter and receiver are unbound?

Hi

I purchased a 3DR Hexa ready to fly, I can't seem to get the RC binded with the hexacopter, do you know if this has been done for me, is it part of the ready to fly set up by udrones? Anyone any pictures to show me?

Thank You

Tom

no,hexa with payload of 2,3 or more kg wont stay in air if lose one motor...teorethicly answer is yes,but when u lose motor brain is not capable of reacting so fast...Y6 frame and octa X8 frame could survive one motor loss,octa maybe with two...been there than that with normal hexa..my one also have trust enough for 9kg,but when u lose motor hexa make salto mortale on the side where is that motor...

Wow...that's a good payload. Perhaps flight time is measured in seconds. I have a friend that's thinking about shooting some video. Asking me what he would need, quad, hex or octo. My experience is a GoPro. Perhaps 10 minutes of flight time.

I have a hex that will theoretically lift 9Kg, it's just a question of thrust, and of course, battery consumption.

Comment by Gonçalo Abreu on February 1, 2013 at 4:29am

I think the question is:"would an hexacopter still fly with a 2,5kg payload if an motor was lost?"

Comment by Randy Brazeau on January 31, 2013 at 5:18pm
Would a hex copter carry a 2.5 KG payload such as a camera comfortably?

Well I have put my Naza up for sell so I can get the APM I am ready to do some waypoint flying
