"Awesome thank you much! Github for me is so confusing for some reason. Obviously what you linked is simple but if I try to navigate and understand what I am doing in it i just get lost. I wish there was a tutorial for github."

Best folding propss for multicopters?

Hey guys I am trying to find the best folding props for my quad. I am using 4114 330kv motors. I got some cheap plastics on there right now. I got them originally just to get me by until I could find something that performed better. I am looking for something that is carbon fiber and something around the 15 inch range. I am using 15x5.2 currently would like to stay at that size.See More

"Hi, I am using tethered set with bungee for all new frames and controllers, for precise manual tune of the PIDs before the first flight. You can look at my post here. The procedure is well described here."

Starting PID Values for Larger Quads

I am being told that my problem with my quad lies within the control loops of the flight controller. That being said I am not able to fly my quad to tune it. So where do you start with tuning. Before I lengthened my arms and up'd my motor size from 2214 to 4114 the default values were "ok" at least to get the quad up in the air and get it tuned. The way mine sits now with the default values it is impossible to fly. Motors get hot and you have to constantly be correcting some kind of extreme…See More

"I think i may have found my issue. I started testing resistance through my control wire from pixhawk to esc. The first motor I checked is showing 25 ohms on the ground wire that slowly drops to single digits. But the signal wire is starts at 9k ohms…"

"Another log. The vibes are weird. You can see times where they dip down that is when the quad is at minimum 4 feet above the ground."
