I prefer it stretched but never liked the complete black blades. I've got a set of the RTs with the white tips - much better.

I'm running off the FBL unit as well not the way that guy is running it - that vid is the first I've heard of the issue.

i have seen this before but yeah, bit over kill, imo.

as long as you have plenty on power getting to the servos it will be ok. i wouldnt worry about the bus in the fbl handling it. i try and get two feeds into the fbl unit and use the heaviest servo leads you can find for you supply. if you run a rx you can put one in the fbl and one into the rx and when you use the wiring harness between them it will interconnect anyway.

Lol. The v2 cano is ok. Just a little bulge! Robust looking.

the new v3 cano looks sick. Not sure if it will be here by taupo.

Looks like a mash up between a Logo and 7HV?? Keen to see it at Taupo.

Was changing the low voltage on my DSX9 and hit the wrong exit mode from the service menu - wiped out all my settings fuq.

On the plus side I now had a reason to re-calibrate the gimbals as they were getting a bit off. Thankfully the Vbars store the majority of the config so there is very little to configure again

Awesome stuff. I think everyone there was stoked the prize went to your son. Can't wait for mine to be old enough to realise crashing it isn't the point.
