  1. please, give me a help.
    some times ago i started to make my own XCopter buying the parts on your list. i saw your videos but i can’t make it fly. how did you program the Radio?

    • Hi there!

      I didn’t really program the radio, all i did was to trim the copter when it flew. Can you tell me a bit more about your problem? Does it arm? What’s wrong?

      • thanks for your time!
        i don’t now exactly where i the problem. ESC seems ok, kk control board ok, motors connected and positioned in the right place.
        i tried many configuration to connect rx to the control board but no one made my xcopter show signs of life. i tried to change the tx’s configuration but nothing changed.
        a question: how did you connect your rx to the control board? i think i need the disposition of the cables.
