"Hit the deck this afternoon with my X8 during my APM maiden from the death roll. I was flying in stabilize, LOS and dropped airspeed during a high turn. My fault entirely. My CG is at the manufacturers recommended but I think I may shift it forward…"

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,
