  1. Hi,

    Nice setup, I'm thinking about building similar.. but I have 2 questions:
    - what battery are you using? 3S or 4S?
    - Are your ESCs completly stock or did you modified the software?

    Thanks for your help!

    1. I asked him per E-Mail. He replied: 3S 3600mAh. Nowadays he would prefer using 4S with slightly weaker motors (about 900kV) and 9x5 or 10x5 Graupner EProps with this quadrocopter.

  2. Du nimmst ja die NTM Prop Drive Series 28-26A 1200kv Motoren. Wie montierst du auf diesen die Props? Ich kenne da nur diese Adapter mit Spannzange die ich für nicht sehr vorteilhaft halte. Auf deinen Bildern erkenne ich es leider nicht, das das ist dann ein System was ich nicht kenne. Wäre cool wenn du mich aufklärst ;-)
