"If you plot RCIN.C2 and RCOUT.C2  , you can see that when you switch to stabilize, you see that the elevator output follows input nicely - so the servo was at least not commanded to do a dive. What I don't understand, is that it seems like…"

Hello, I was testing a new airplane the other day, the maiden flight worked fine, no issues, landed changed battery and went again on the second flight I launched in stabilize mode and things were going fine so I switched to FBWA I had also done this on the first flight and had no issues but when I switched this time I noticed the plane started to pitch downward and I was fighting to keep it level, I switched back to stabilize and gained altitude and flew for a little while longer before it all…See More

"I understand that the price is steep guys, but believe me I am trying hard to see how I can do this cheaper, unfortunately 3D printing is still very expensive, I really wish it could cost $40.00 to print this... I will lower the price to $129.00,…"

"+1 Earl I agree that is very steep, I suggest lower that to like $30-40 and offer the STL like earl said for $10. But that's just my opinion."

Lost control of my Quad a couple months ago and it landed in a nearby pond, me and my kid(pictured) spent like 20 minutes in a cold 4 ft deep body of water looking for it. I really thought that I had lost everything. We finally found it and it was still beeping, we pulled off the battery plug immediately and just…
