I like that your yaw system uses bearings. How well did it work in flight? Do you still use it, or have you changed to something else?

I am printing all my parts in ABS right now while before I used PLA but had no issues. I am working on changing the rear servo mount to reduce material and over all size and should have that posted soon. I used 2 R4Z 1/4"x5/8"x0.196" Shielded Ball Bearing for the rear motor mount and a 1/4"x2.5" Pin. The next update is to make a cover for the KK2.

This is awesome! I'm building a MendelMax 1.5, primarily so I can 3D print parts to fly FPV aircraft. Building my first tri-copter is next on the list.

What electronics did you use? I want to build one of these!
