Hi guys, well I have had this for a little while now and have only hovered it in manual mode in the backyard.

As it had been a while since playing with it, I spent time lastnight going over the setup and working out what switch and levers did what and where.

I took the young bloke out to kick the football for a while and took the hex to have it's first proper outing.

I had planned, before, during and after pics, I got those and a short vid aswell ( which will be uploaded tonight).

Well, today was the first time out actually flying and testing the hex with the Tarot ZYX-M FC.

The retracts work really well, but are a little sloppy ( will look into making these more stable), Att mode is great and GPS mode is awesome ( just have to remember to have throttle at mid stick so it doesn't climb or descend).

I must admit though, it was a little un-nerving flicking go home and it flys itself back( this will take some getting used to).

All in all, it behaved as it should and it didn't take long for the GPS to lock on prior to take off

The GPS held really well at different heights also.

I forgot to set my timer, so I landed it before running out of packs. I checked the voltage and they were down at 3.85 volts per cell and the amount left in the pack was 48%.

Here is a pick or two.

Cheers Dave.







Compas 7HV, Stretched Synergy E5, Gaui X5 Formula, Turnigy, H550 Hex, Qav 250 racing Quad, Blade Nano QX, Blade Inductrix and a couple of 1/10 cars.

O.K. so to see what the OSD was reading, I made up a temporary solution until I get something better.

I would be able to see this info through my FPV goggles, but just wanted a little screen for now.

I have spare vtx's and an older pair of Quanum V1's. I got it all together and had to make up a power lead, but no issues.

It all works and managed to have 4 sats locked on in the shed.

Cheers Dave.
