E-clips and C-clips... Search circlip does not get much response...

Might as well be looking for a 'Woggle Toggle Box'...

Maiden flight at work tomorrow 8-) , thats because a first aid officer will be present :lol: :lol:

A desk top test sans the props indicates that everything turns and burns as required and there will obviously be some tuning of the KK2.0 required.

It is a little heavier than expected at 1.1kg but I have yet to trim the motor shafts and if the 1045 props struggle I have a set of 1147s.

As Big Kev used to say "I'm excited" :roll:

Well good luck with that, hope it doesn't end up stirring slurry.
Because that would be just nasty... who is big Kev and what excited him so much?

Powered up at work and all good, at least I didn't break it. The vid was rubbish so I will try another day when the weather is less of an issue, I tentatively guided it around a covered area hardly able to give it much throttle at this stage.
Bit more work to do on gains and limits but all in all very :D

Have a look at youtube under the name of "Dhdsracer", from the sound of him, he knows what he's talking about when setting up the KK2.0 board.
