"@james, It wasn't me, but some unfortunate individual on RCGroups. I believe that he did not checkout his aileron performance on the ground to see if it was correct prior to his maiden flight. Regards, TCIII AVD "

Hi James,

Thanks for extending your friendship.

 I've just finished my X8 with APM2.5, 3DR Telemetry and minimOSD. I've only tested the X8 in manual flight before installing the APM. I'm enjoying the experience and look forward to do some testing on my newest bird.

Thanks again,
