Currently I'm using ec3 and xt60 but will switch the whole lot to anderson powerpole connectors in the near future.
The appeal of not having to solder coupled with the drop in prices makes it a no...

buying habits

Just like the models available to us, the variety of differences in how and what we buy must be quite extreme.
Some of us buy a single plane, fly it for years and are perfectly happy with that....

What frame are you using?
If it is carbon fibre or aluminum make sure your receiver antenna is well clear from the frame.
Such frames can cause serious interference with the signal from...

The naz32 only draws 100 miliamps so the 2 amp supplied by the esc is more than adequate. Remember there are no servos to power on a quad.

Ok. I'll assume you are running 6" props. If so your amp draw should be within limits as long as they are 6x2. Any hgher pitch and you're exceeding the current rating for that motor. If the motor...

Yes it's the baby kobra. Great tip on the TE reenforcement.

Folded plans

What are some of the techniques you guys use to flatten out folded plans?
Those creases make it a real pita to lay out the parts properly.

I've gotten bored as well several times. I walk away for a while. Fly the quad. Do something else.
Then I start thinking about the kit and get excited about it. It is a vicious circle.

I think it has to do with my lack of skill as a builder. Once I get started and pieces start going together I'm fine.

Nice to see the new section.
I've been having fun, if you can call it that, with a proto x, a 180 qx, and a HK450.
The first 2 are a quick out of the box fix. The HK450 is more of a hobbiest quad...

Don't get too excited yet. Shipping notification could just mean a electronic waybill has been created. Could take days for it to actually leave their warehouse.
