    Bit of a thread res, but I used to be pretty heavy into RC helicopter's (owned like 6 at one point, still have 3..or is it 4?) and have one quadcopter and a Y-copter. I would love to build one up for camera use, but I don't have a camera yet - so first things first.

    Was curious if you ever had luck with yours and the new firmware for the board?

    It's still waiting on me. Just haven't sat down long enough to take it apart and put it back together with loctite.

    Moved the quad to the desk yesterday. Pulled out the USB programmer, downloaded the software and the 1.6 firmware update for the KK2.0 controller.

    Started checking out the frame, WOW there are a lot of missing nuts! Not much point getting the software updated (better auto leveling) until I get the frame put back together and locktite on everything!

    I'd update the firmware and say "just one quick flight..." and it would probably disintegrate mid air!

    I understand that completely! Same way myself.

    Just got back from Moab,and my boys took some video with our Phantom 1.1.1 with GoPro on Moab Rim trail. I think it really gives a whole new perspective to trail videos, and also to the terrain.

    Thanks.. Been looking for a Phantom 1.1.1, but haven't had any luck on finding one that doesn't look like it's been through a war, or the person wants like original price for it... Been looking at picking up a Phantom 2 Vision + v3, that he is looking to sell, since he just bought a Phantom 3.... I am very interested in it, but the more I look into the "entry" level Phantom 3, I might just pick up one of them for a just a bit more then what he wants for his still pretty much brand new Phantom 2 (if I can't get him to come down a little bit on the price for it).. Either way, I enjoy flying the quadcopter I have currently, but it it isn't nearly as stable and enjoyable airframe to fly as the Phantom's are, and it defiantly doesn't have the camera setup like they do...
