That will come dont worry ;) I have done a couple of test flights and it does handle well outside if there is no wind. Even with a gentle breeze it shoots away quickly and its not easy fighting back up wind. The camera works but I didnt really get anything worth posting as without a gimbal the camera looks down at the ground when moving forward...Anyway I will post soon.

This little quad has got me hooked and I am now in the middle of building a hexacopter. I used to do a lot of photography and Id like to get back into it, albeit with some decent equipment and from a different perspective.;) :beer:

Ok here is a quick video of my new hexacopter in action.

Specs:

Tarot 680PRO
DJI Naza V2 GPS
6 x Tiger motor MN3508-20 (580kv)
6 x Afro ESC 30 A
6 x 1365 Carbon Fiber Propellers
Frsky D8R-XP
Frsky FSH01 Hub
Frsky GPS sensor V2 (modified for non-S.Port system)
Frsky battery voltage indicator
DJI Zenmuse H3-3D (3 axis gimbal)
Gopro 4 silver
2 x Turnigy nano 5000 mAh 4 S, 35-70 C

Transmitter 9XR Pro mode 2
ERSky 9XR firmware
Hobbyking LiFe transmitter pack 1500 mAh 3S
Frsky DJT

Weight: 3.2 kg
Extra payload ca. 4.2 kg ;)

Hexacopter Maiden flight

Ecalc looks to be a little conservative on the runtime. The first flight was just over 20 mins and the batteries still had a little juice (15.2 V) ;).

On the first flight I managed to test Safemode ie copter returns automatically to point of take off and flew in GPS and ATTI modes. Wind was around 5 -10 kts. I will post a more informative thread on the build, with pics and better video a little later. :) :beer:

Great review! I had come across some extra cash getting rid of stuff and bought a phantom 3. I loooove it. Have gotten some great shots and video. Got a pic of this little guy when I loved in Hawaii.

It flies great. GPS coupled with all of the sensors inside keep it really stable. I get between 18-24 per battery.
