i got this kit and when it came i was so excited... my first quad-copter adventure was about to begin. I opened it and started making it only to realize that the USB port it came with wasn't the correct kind for this model. soon after i found out that the shrink plastic motor covers WERE NOT EVEN IN THE KIT. the wrong amount of propellers was in the kit and when we emailed the company asking what was up they just told us to take pliers and bend the USB port to make it the right shape... and the charger we got only has 5 ports and not 6 ports ad described. This story is still in progress but it was kind of disappointing so far.

we have talked to the help people and they are sending is the motor covers and a free battery for out trouble but this really shouldn't have happened.

I have everything up and assembled, but I cannot get the motors to spin up using the transmitter. In cleanflight I can manually turn up the motors but not with the transmitter. I can also see the signals are received in the receiver tab in cleanflight. I'm using spektrum dxe with bind code 8. Anybody have similar issues and might know a fix?

Hi there, I'm thinking of buying the frsky version. I was wondering whether you could advise on an frysky transmitter, as I'm unsure.

Many Thanks.

if your running a reprap maybe lower your extruder min temp? If your min temp that your extruder extrudes filament is set to high in Marlin and you lower the temp in your slicing program it will shut off you extruder mid print if it dips below the set min temp. When I first setup my reprap I had the min temp set at 180 degrees and then in repetier-host I was playing around with the filament settings. Once I figured out what i did wrong, no more failed prints

I cannot get past 60% printed before my printer stops extruding filament. I have tried at least 7 times and it always seems to stop extruding at the same point. Anyone have any advice?

what motor this kit use ?
7mm, 8mm, or 8,5mm ???

where do you get the software(note: I have already checked the beef's board website) I tried getting the chrome web app, but it dosent let you click anything

Can someone who has this fully assembled quad be willing to run some tests for me? Im trying to make a custom frame that would make it look like a dragon and I need to know how much this set up can lift and still be able to fly.

I built this and when I plug in the battery all 4 motors go on right away, any idea why? I flashed baseflight already. Could it be a soldering issue?
I am also trying to bind my spektrum dx 8, a link to a video to bind to this quad would help me and my class of kids that will be doing this.

Please refer to the flight controller manual: http://www.fisselrc.com/BBB32/

Sweet, thanks, great info.

Hi. I'm 11 years old and I want to make this but I can not afford to pay $110 to get the electronics kit. Is there a cheaper way?

ALIEXPRESS - find QUADCOPTER - find something under 15$

I know $110 is a lot for someone 11 years old, but that is very cheap for something like this. Go do a bunch of chores and beg your parents

thanks hovership for this great board. A lot of my friends in Berlin also work on a nano qaud right now. There for i created an FPV mount with 15deg angle. I'm now a bit concerned after printing with 80% infill PLA that the frame will be not stiff enough. Do you have any experiences?

This is a great model. I printed it out and got up and running in no time. It is very light, less than 40g without the battery. I used a 75% infill with PLA, and heated my bed to 50c. For my particular print out, the 8.5mm motors fit perfectly, not too tight, and not too lose. I didn't need to put the heat shrink on to keep them secure, they seem to stay in all by themselves.

The beef brushed board fits well. I put some double sided sticky foam under it and used used glue dots under the foam to help isolate vibrations. Adding FPV isn't too hard if you are using the CM205 camera, you can just lay it on the top and will have a slight overhang. There is a remix for the Spektrum camera which also looks pretty cool. Just in time for the cold weather. Thanks Hovership!

Maybe some prop guards, that would be cool because the props like to hit things. :P

Great will try to by the kit
