Great Multi Rotor Tips

Hey Guys

I just ordered a HoverflyPro board! I looked at a lot of boards and read an awful lot on the various manufacturers and this is the best one for me. The DJI Wookong M was a very close second choice. It seems all the available boards have their pros, cons and quirks with some being better in one function then not in another. The good old pro/con list was useful in picking the board.

Anyway, after minutely going over the topics on the HoverFly website there was a really good video on "soldering tips". I thougt to myself that I know how to solder as well as everyone but there is a super good tip on how to make wiring harnesses there. I tried it and it is a piece of cake to do and makes a very clean looking harness. Prior to this my connections were big blobby looking things. I thought this would be useful to pass along.

Re: Great Multi Rotor Tips

DJI Hobby products are excellent but avoid their higher level, bleeding edge WKM products for now...... you won't like the delivery delays, setbacks, hardware and software bug issues and USA supplier bottlenecks..... it's a stinking nightmare.

German MikroKopters are very good products as well but the same type of situations can crop up along with German/English commucation issues..... must wait another year or two to get the bleeding edge tech issues under control....
