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?

Comment by bobarry on June 29, 2013 at 8:11am

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...

Search is working for me

Comment by Jay Johnson on June 25, 2013 at 3:19pm

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