    it finally arrived and I can say it's a great quad strait out of the box. The only minor issue I have had so far are I had to change the air mode switch to aux3 as the aux2 on mine is the rotary switch that I use for gimbal tilt on my x350. I like the props on the rodeo 150 and the f210 that have the nuts built in to the prop because they are easy and quick to get in the air. So the 215 takes a few seconds longer to get in the air. I printed a mount for the run cam2 which you can just see it in the top of the fpv video.

    You will love it. I hadn't flown with air mode before and it's amazing. You can hang in the sky for so long. I used to struggle with doing s-turns but now they are easy. Just make sure you turn air mode off before landing I'm trying to upload a video to YouTube but it doesn't seam to be working.

    not the best video because I didn't want to break it the first time I took it out.

    Mine's been sitting at the GUANGZHOU DEPOT for three weeks. Is that normal?

    Nice flying, Cam!

    Rosspa, when did you place your order? Did you order through UCDrone or Walkera China?

    I ordered on March 28 through UCDrone :/

    Looking forward to hearing about the flight, Rosspa.

    Just uploading a couple of videos now.

    First flight had a prop come off, Luckily for me it went into a bush. This has got me semi worried now tbh. I do tighten before every flight but do keep thinking its going to happen again.

    The dvr footage doesn't look great but was fine through the goggles. The camera is so much better than the one
    on my Rodeo 150. The osd is nice but ideally i'd like to lose the horizon line and the vertical lines.

    Did I mention that its fast? Well it is. Very.

    The only other thing is the short battery life. Says 8 to 9 minutes and im getting less than four. Not sure how long to charge them as its quite difficult for me to tell on the supplied charger. Gave them 3 hours each, so not sure on that one.
