MINI MWC Flight Control Board and DSM2 Receiver. This is a great flight controller, but it's hard to come by and not for beginners.
Stay tuned for Afro Naze FPV version.

I've uploaded mk5 2204.stl and _mk5-tail 2204.stl_for larger 2204 motors. I don't have these motors. Please let me know if they need adjustment. I suggest starting with the tail since it's a smaller print.
Printed in PLA at 80% infill for strength.
Frame, Rear Skid and Canopy can and should be printed without support.
Tail should be laid flat and printed with support.
I printed the Front Skids with support positioned as it is.
I used 3 M3 washers for the tail to smoothen the rotation motion.
I soldered the motors directly to the ESC and shortened the control wires to fit.
I took the Stock PID settings of the MWC Controller and cut them in half. It makes it less touchy. I added a bit of yaw rate, but that is more my preference.
