Some of these posts make me very nervous that some people are putting powerful Quads/Hexs in the air with little or no flying skills/experience. I have been using the APM boards for a while now and also fly 3D helis daily. Just my opinion. You should at least master a simulator program before ever flying anything unless you are in the middle of a large field and are prepared to crash . Please realize that an injury from a "Drone" gets public attention and can put a strain on the hobby. Commercial pilots learn to fly countless hours before they engage the autopilot on an aircraft. I do not mean to be out of line but this would be considered by many as basic common sense. Be safe

Help! I put blades on my Turnigy motors, tightened down the cute hubs, revved up to see what happens & one of the hubs flew off!

What can I do?

The hubs have 2 holes on them but it is clear thru them, so set screws aren't in order.

Fortunately I still have setup problems, because full throttle didn't get me off the floor.

Any help appreciated

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.

Help?!

Forum search,  http://www.diydrones.com/forum# 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 udrones.com

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

Search is working for me

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