Posted on April 17, 2015 at 10:30am 22 Comments

I recently came across a very interesting Quad Copter from Aerosky call the X350. The don't mention the APM but in the manual it states that it is compatible with DroidPlanner and Mission Planner. The price is great if it flies as the advertise

For the RTF price of 399.00 I am considering getting one to test. It does not state anywhere that an APM/or compatible is in it. I thought that under the Open Source rules they had to mention the Group of Developers…

Well,With great help from Chris, I think my system is ready for another flight test this week end. I can't wait to see the plane work properly so that i can tweak the settings to fly super smooth. my goal is to get the plane to perform a takeoff on its own with a slight toss. 

I will keep you all updated...
