Watts will change with load. 6x4 will result in a low wattage, while 12x8 may overload the motor or achieve max. From my understanding, low kV is the only way to run bigger props, unless you run less...

I was thinking of turning a non-DFC head into a form of a DFC head, but then removing cyclic. Pizzano's post, the second pick. The head fits on the shaft, and a sleeve goes over this, followed by a...

I managed a few hovers today, albeit fairly short. I was at the field earlier and was flying about, most not expecting me to be able to fly, let alone flipping around and doing knife edges. I had a...

Look at the 450x head, and notice how the grips connect to the swash, as well as two points connecting to the swash further down on the head. You could very easily reverse the two parts to connect to...

I haven't tried yet...I'm sure it is plenty strong now though, with sheeting and battery tray. With covering it should be even stronger.

Grip control direction

I'm curious about what the direction of control on grips does, meaning whether the grip control leads or lags. If it lags, the swash would move down to increase pitch, or on the tail the servo would...

He showed me in the sim at the shop, stating that is how he lands always, at least on the 300 size and up, simply because it lets you have a gentle landing. I really don't know what the issue is,...

It was a canopy, blade, fin combo, so my 450x is now sporting red fins...and a canopy that is now carved up to allow the servo movement.
