How many degree's are the arms tilted up on S800.

Is it all of them at the same amount or did they do 3 at one angle and 3 at another.

The dihedral of all motor arms should the the same on the S800.

A friend measured his and said they are 10 degree's up.

I have not flown one yet so now i would like to know what the difference is on how they feel compared to regular hex.

I believe angling of the arms and motors are as much to clear the motors and props from view of the camera as it is to improve stability.

Its a little less efficent but it provides a more stable (level) craft moving forward/sideways etc. because it does not have to tilt to move as much.

This was explained to me from the owner of DJI.

I got to see an S800 for the first time today and the plastic arms felt very 'bendy'. I wonder if angling the props is to help 'pre-bend' the arms in flight to try and stop wobble.

It was loaded up with batteries and a zenmuse - and I have to say it is a hell of a lot of hardware to lift such a small camera.
