    Hey guys, how are things going?  JB, how is the VTOL project going?  Would love to see some pics of it!!

  • I wonder what happened to Stephen and Redemptioner?  :-S

    Hope they haven't moved on to greener pastures!

    Hey guys - so how did the meet go?  We had 6 people rock up in Melbourne with mainly quads, but all different models and configurations.  There was also one helicopter.  Was quite a good turnout.

  • Sorry, I didn't make it to the meetup today as my gf was ill.  I'm disappointed but hopefully there will be another meetup soon.

    How did it go?

    Hey guys, I would love to be there but unfortunately i'll be in Melbourne.  Maybe if someone could take some pics?  I would love to put something up on here if eople are cool with that.

    Co-incidentally, i've organised a meeting in Melbourne for today.  Considering where things started just a few months ago, it's good to see a collection of people finally come together.

    Have a great day and I hope the weather is favourable! (:

  • Jean-Baptistse - I have sent you a message with my mobile number and details of the meetup.

    I'm not sure if anyone is watching the 'glue on prop adapter' thread, but after I was talking about my new collets and using nail varnish to stop props flying off yesterday this happened this morning...

    "I was set for my a standard flight this morning, trialing some waypoints etc, when I see a full sized helicopter wanting to land on the oval i'm using.  I wait for the copter to land and the pilot spots the quad ibefore he's left the cockpit and we have a brief chat about it.  Pull out the video cam and record it fly away.  Filled with the 'coolness' of flight, I set up my quad, hit record on the GoPro and take off...  Get about 30 second into the flight and two props fly off. *face palm*  This was AFTER tightening strongly AND using varnish.

    Needless to say that it's not acceptable for the hobbiest, let alone what i'm trying to do.

    So, subsequently I ordered my Tiger motors with screw own prop adapter and CW/CCW nuts to replace the stock quad motors that came with my kit."

  • Redemption,

    I would be keen to have a look at the large Hexa and see it fly - I haven't seen a quad / hexa fly in person yet. 

    That park on fig tree pocket road works for me - what time did you want to meet up,  

    I will Message you my mobile number.

Recently purchased my first hexcopter, having gps problems not allowing me to arm or calibrate

Hey guys and firstly thanks for the add. I purchased my first hexcopter last week off a guy in Brisbane, when I picked it up he showed me it flying and doing everything it was told too hahaha. Now once I got it home and installed the driver for the usb and apm planner 2.0 I have been drowning. I can connect to the flight planner via the cable and calibrated my radio. I can not get the usb to talk to the flight planner even after changing the braud rate back to 57600. The other problem I am…
