"My personal experience f30 with simon k firmware solid performance over 600 hours flight time so far and both 3 & 4 s systems Can't say the same for the plush esc unfortunately overheating and general failures."

"To be honest it sounds like you can't be bothered to do any research If they are similar to the hk30 3-4s 30amp esc why not buy the set the standard f30 esc? Update the firmware yourself... And while your at it pay Simon k a donation for being…"

"In testing a heavy lift hex I was very uncertain about ANY sort of tethering, and then read about moving the props one position CW or CCW. Now this thing is scary at full throttle but setup like this is no problem, as long as the legs can stand up…"

"A very handy (and cheap) thing to have is an 18 inch (or so) square of pegboard and a few small eyebolts to make a base onto which a multicopter can be lashed. You'll also need something to  weigh the board down, like a pair of bricks.…"

"LOL, I know.  I told the boys they better hold on because one of them is the Spare kid. Fortunately, they are used to me. Most of my crazy schemes do not result in Boy Damage."

"Clearly you are a man who practices redundancy. Much like your hex being able to continue in the event of a motor loss, with two teens you could lose one and still continue the test. Bravo! I like the way you think."

"Indeed.  KIDS, DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME. It seemed like a good idea at the time.  Not quite at the level of "hold my beer and watch this", but the boys are strapping young men and I carefully explained how to hold it down. But…"

"Shudder! If one has ever seen an ESC or Lipo failure under high load, one would never get that intimate with them. Or for that matter a prop failure. Hanging on to or securing the aircraft may seem to be the only issue. It's not. The likelihood…"

Tom Mahood replied to Jason Till's discussion APM 2.5 Compass MOT Problem
"If you have bullet connectors between the ESCs and the motors just switch any of the two leads and the motors will run in reverse. Because the cross section of the prop blades is variable, running them in reverse doesn't truly mimic normal…"

Mike Boland replied to Jason Till's discussion APM 2.5 Compass MOT Problem
"You don't have to reverse the props, just move them around one position. As each motor turns opposite that means the copter is pushing down not up. Turning them upside down does not do this. "

"I had a similar problem with my hex and decided to leave the props and tie the beast down. There are a lot of ways to do that. A suggestion is to use a piece of plywood as a base and install four eye-bolts on it. Then use a single length of stout…"
