Default Q680 quadcopter HK

Hi,I'm going to build a quad using this frame kit from HK:
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=56209
Does anyone have any experience with this kit?
I have ordered these motors and esc's:
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=39037
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...idProduct=2164
I would have got the special multi-rotor esc's,but they always seem to be out of stock when i want them.Sods law at work again.
This is the control board i ordered:
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=54299
It seems to be a well liked unit,so i'm hopeful i'll be able to get my quad working well with it.
If anyone has any other suggestions or comments,I'd be grateful.
Hans.

That is a nice set up. I use similar motors on smaller (350mm, 450mm) quads. The frame you link to is 680mm motor to motor and recommends a larger motor, This may be underpowered but I cannot say for sure.
The ESCs that are flashed with the simonK firmware fly so much better that the ones that are not flashed. It made a big difference with the KK board when I installed flashed escs. I was able to set the gains higher and the quad felt more connected and more stable.
Be careful as these things are addictive.

Flying is like ... ah well ... I can not think of anything it is like...

There seem to be conflicting reports over whether Turnigy plush esc's can be flashed with simon k firmware.Some say yes,some no.
I did find a page where the plush were flashed with some sort of heli program,but i now can't find it.Probably got the name wrong.
