Here is my newly built DJI Flamewheel F450 frame bought in goodluckbuy.com...

I was thinking to attach my APM2 on this quad or just let it fly with the FreeFlight Controller that came with.
I am still looking for battery packs to power this quad any suggestions will be much appreciated.
and still waiting for the availability of the Turnigy 9X in hobbyking or any variants of it that can be flashed/modded

all comments are welcome may it be from quad vets or new in the hobby
will be fitting this out with gopro and fpv or if it can carry a casio exelim z130 or my nokia N900

Kabayan, I suggest you use first the flight control board that came with the Flaming Wheel so that you could get the feel of flying the quad before you set up the APM 2.0.  I sabay mo na pati at least 3000mah 11.1v Turnigy Nanotech batteries sa HK. you could buy online from HK, 'di ko lang alam shipping time from Hong Kong to Inang Bayan.

I've had good luck with both Turnigy NanoTech and Zippy from HobbyKing, 3S, 2200mAh, at least 25C.

Don't get the 15C by mistake... they are great for some fixed wings, but don't give enough power throughput for quads.

I am building the same setup. I started out with a KK Board on it and 3000mah battery. With that setup the quad was very unstable and not flyable. I am awaiting for the arrival of my AMP 2 this should help with fight control I hope. I have some videos of a quad that I used until I crashed it to much Youtube. I will be checking back on your Blog keep up the good work

imko i like your plexiglass mounting plate :) did you just fabricated it on your own?

Yes made myself a little DIY CNC witch i used to make the mounting plate. It works great i make use of the space above and below the mounting plate. I now only carry the battery and a fpv camera on top.
