More acrobatic flying from CrazyJ (below) - Acrobatics are drills - by flying drills, photographers and film makers develop extreme reflex skills, that can then be applied to smooth "boom"ops- 3 dimensional film making with total confidence.

Requires excludes

NOTE : Carbon blocks 2.4Ghz radio signals - always locate your Rx antenna BELOW the airframe line - always set your FAILSAFE to AUTO LEVEL - low power descent incase you fly out of range.

Question - I like the look of landing gear for my first Quad - are carbon Landing strong? Why aren't they included on Armour trainers?
Carbon fibre is VERY strong in TENSION - stronger than steel - but sudden impacts can smash carbon - its NOT resistant to hard crashing/smashing shear forces - kevlar is better for impact - For noobs we recommend using the supplied Red Aluminium Standoffs - aluminium is soft but very good at taking a hit in a crash - the 4 metal stubby landing gear are PERFECT for noobs because they protect the LiPo from impacts but can take all the early noob learning issues with throttle - Noob pilots dont react quick enough to power changes and then over react - so altitude holding is difficult for some - this is mainly due to inertia (it takes a second to see the result of power changes) = momentum effects - Pro's find it very very simple to hold height well as they make more rapid power changes in smal amounts than noobs - anyway the answer to this question is NO, DO NOT INSTALL CARBON landing gear for your first noob flights - not until you have mastered soft controlled VERTICAL landings on a dime!  literally put down a coin and make sure you land in the exact spot on the metal studs - then your ready for Carbon fibre gear

  • Information on assembling a kit can be gained by looking at the photos on the product page itself. If you stuck on an advanced kit then first read the Quad Noobs guide
  • MultiCopters should hover at 50% throttle and fly for 10-15 mins.
  • Balance all props - vibration causes junk sensors data and gello in video - remove the SOURCE of the vibration by balancing
  • Use a quality prop balancer(Du-Bro 499 Tru-Spin Prop Balancer) statically; then run them individually to check they are centred true and the tipshave the same path; any vibration will reduce the effectiveness of the Wii gyro or anyother gyro.
  • Attach any IMU or sensors such as Sirius™, NAZA or WookM with vibration isolation gel - Board with sensors solder to directly are just cheapo clones - commercial quality IMU use isolation vibration materials
  • Keep your PROPS OFF - not installed - until you are fully conversant/understand in full the functions of your Tx in full including TRAV (end Points), the arm and disarm procedures - realise that for a noob skiping or out-of-order set-up steps or moving sticks, or even static - PROPS may start at anytime without warning. Never install props prior to calibration of the ESC and testing the gyro orientation, and arm/disarm testing of the board - YOU are responsible - make sure your actions and your Copter is safe - remove the prop -remove the risk.
  • Always maiden on default PIDs' - If the copter is not almost perfect on default PID's then DO NOT go straight to altering the PID's! Most of the problems you will face as a noob will be caused by making wild assumptions or following myths from forums - fly on default PIDs first - balance your props - make sure your ESC are calibrated and synchronized.
  • Dont be fooled by forum claims of kirby flashed ESCs - this software will melt your ESCs and give short flights - there is a lot of bad info on forums

Safety in Australian Skies

  • Keep more than 30m from persons,choose an empty sports field for your first flights
  • Do not fly near pets, houses or cars
  • Never fly within 3nm of an airfield or above 400ft
  • Never install your props until after the Multicopter is fully tested and 100% correct without props. Engines can start suddenly and without warning IF YOU FAIL to understand how they work or skip any steps.
  • Set your Tx/Rx binding to low throttle 1/4 position so that if the link is lost the copter will descend slowly.
  • Always keep your Copter in line of sight for one pilot ops - FPV is only legal in AU with a buddy on a buddybox - 2 person FPV is 100% legal using the buddybox system below 400'.  See CASA Part 101 Regs
  • RC Flying is a privilege - please enjoy it.  Don't show off and don't get over confident
  • Home movies are fine, but in Australia professional paid photography or videos from an RC aircraft requires CASA Part 101 compliance, including exams and approved ops manuals and pilot competency tests by CASA official which will cost several thousand up front.

Safety in USA Skies

USA multicopter Flyers be aware - FAA D.O.T USA published an AC 91-57 (Advisory Circular) on June 9 1981 to keep flyers of models away from populated areas (people) and minimise hazard to persons and property on the ground - the intention is conveyed by this AC - It is titled Model aircraft operating Standards - Para 3. a) to e).

Clearly stated are the 400ft height limit and not closer than 3nm from an airport and the avoidance of populated areas and parks.

Once used commercially a model in the USA becomes a U.A.S and pilots should read this document regarding the use of multicopters for Comm Ops
