    Hello everyone, today I noticed that the motor axis is not perfectly equal for all 4 engines, namely the front ones are inclined towards the rear. Is it normal?

    I noticed this too. But even the 2 front props were not nicely lined up.

    So I assumed this was due to some mis alignment during assembling.
    I corrected this after one of the crashes in June or so (had to disassemble one of the arms anyway).

    I fixed this and afterwards it seem to fly more responsive. But not very certain of this had been the cause.

    It also might be on purpose, to correct the clearence that is in the mechanical tilt system.

    Hello Frank,
    Thanks a lot, so it wasn't just me. I'll try to align them better, too.

    Uhmmm ... I've seen other videos of other users and me seem to align correctly. Maybe then to me are not aligned properly?

    That is not too difficult. Three screws on each side.
    Unscrew the carbon top plates too (the first two)
    Then you can GENTLY bend the side plates open to remove the white plastic plate.

    Tip: if you turn the white plate upside down, you look at the gps module, which has a metal plate on top of it. This metal plate might come lose (did it in my quad anyway).
    You might punt some epoxy glue on the side to secure it to its pcb.
    Mine came loose and created a short cut, resulting in a burned flatcable (almost 100% certain about this cause).

    Second tip:
    I am not sure about the regular procedure to align the motors.
    But that is quite difficult to do it on sight.
    I used big washers (M10 or M12 if I remember well) on top of each motor. That makes it easier to put a good straight ruler on them and you can adjust it by sight.

    Hello everyone
    I take this thread to ask a question.
    It is possible, by manipulation PID, fly the drone forward or backward more leveledon the horizon? So the camera looks forward and not on the ground. Is it possible?Since this drone has the inclination of the engines I think you can do. I saw some kits for drones with not inclinable engines going to tilt the engines just to solve this problem.

    Hi all, I don't want to open another thread maybe it's OK here.
    How come the other drones with tilt as our flying horizontally, while the 320 fly anyway with the snout forward? You could make dialog to make it fly right like that on video?

    I'm glad you touch this subject. I'm also working on this type of flying with furious.
