finally got it built
« on: April 18, 2017, 12:03:02 PM »
well, I finally got my 550 built & programmed:t2980: I'm using SunnySky X2212-13 980-11 KV motors & 10'' Nylon props & Velotech Magic Multirotor Speed Controller 30A with SimonK Program OPTO. I couldn't get the FS to work on the two-way switch or the lights on a switch & the tilt on the gimbal tried everything but no luck  :t2954: what the problem is. I haven't tried flying it yet it's way to  :t110011: hoping to get a chance to fly this weekend & try out my new 5800mAh 25 C battery on it. here are a few boring pictures of it.

It looks really good Jeff!
Take the first flight nice and easy. When you have time we can work on the things that aren't working. Maybe post a shot of your radio menus or something.

Looking very good!  I'm looking forward to seeing the flight videos.  Are you thinking that your switch issues are from something to do with with channel and TX switch assignment, or perhaps from the hardware itself?  BTW, I've had great service from those Sunny Sky motors--I have the same ones on my 550.
