"Thanks Nathanial, Last question turned out to be accidentally using a different cable (my guess is this one was missing a pin) so solved that problem. And when I enter the config/tunning tab in APM planner i can see a list of Standard Params, with…"

"Craig, Check your parameters and look for the parameter "Frame" if it's set coeectly it should have a value of 10. This equals a Y6B frame type. I can't say for sure on your last question, however it can't…"

"@Meavydev, I want to make sure I understand one thing, when you say "It was delayed by compass calibration issues with APM 2 on the Mac with 3.2." by APM 2 are you referring to either an APM 2.0, 2.5, or 2.6 flight controller, or are you…"

"I'm one of those people that Nathaniel mentioned about having the larger props on the bottom.  Simple really, is that I just wanted bigger props on it. (: It'll fly more than fine with 10s everywhere."

Hi

What will the pricing be on your talon kit? And if you need anyone to demo or test i'm up for it... Mechanical engineering student ( final year) at NWU Pukke... I'm also involved with the anti-poaching competition and will also be entering a team.

Kind Regards

Gerrit
