I tried flying with the GoPro mounted this time. I already had broken part of my landing gear last flight but managed to hold it in place with some duct tape ;) Everything went ok until I broke the landing gear again and had to remove the camera mount not to break it. I did a couple of flights without the camera and with the broken landing gear until I snapped 3 props and had to stop. I'll probably end up ordering a custom made plastic (delrin) landing gear from ponoko instead of ordering a replacement CF one, they break too easily.

Where did you get your landing gear?

rc-carbon.com, I've heard they make a new model that is more solid but I don't feel like buying CF parts that I'll probably break again before I have more experience landing the thing.

What are your PID settings, if you do not mind sharing....?I have been fighting some real bad oscillations with the code lately, on Stable mode....

@Cyborg I'll probably disappoint you my my answer but I'm using default PID settings for the moment :P
