Hexacopter fixed and ready to go.

I recentaly fixed my hexacopter which had crashed 2 weeks earlier (Here

This is my best flight since i fixed it.

Changes I made:

1. Moved Apm 2.5 from the bottom to the middle to reduce compass interference.

2. decided not to update to 3.0.1 because I'm familiar with 2.9.1

2. moved telemetry to bottom.

3.moved reciever to top so wires could reach amp.

Thanks to all the people who helped and gave me tips to fix my hexacopter and make it better

Arducopter crash. Throttle wire fell out?

3689532010?profile=originalI was flying my hexacopter at a local school on june 22. Everything started out great. I was flying it in auto, loiter, guided, and RTL mode. While i was flying my hexacopter started drifting away because of the wind. At witch point i brought it back and tried moving the throttle down to land it, but the throttle wasn't working.

Im not shure exactly what happend but i think the throttle wire fell out.
