    Never mind,

    I just ordered this frame, so I will find out soon enough

    I plan to put 15" props on it.

    One more question about width.

    when it is deployed, It doesn't look concentric.

    I assume it is 680mm diagonally, so I am wondering what it measures between the two front props. center to center of the hub.

    Thanks

    Hi skylark team,
    Quick question - your flight times for the Q6-1000 are listed as 55mins... Really?!

    Everything on my FPV craft must be hot swappable, just like Voltron.

    Inner diameter is about 13mm so they should fit

    Frame arrived today

    I started building up the frame but left the top plate off for running wiring and such. I'm coming from a tricopter so any advice on component placement would be helpful. Planned componets are:
    3dr Pixhawk with GPS (mount this on a stalk??)
    EZUHF 8ch diversity Rx
    5.8ghz video Tx (will eventually be 2.4)
    Tarot gimbal with go pro
    TBS 69 cam
    TBS core
    AFRO 30a ESCs
    Turnigy Multistar 4822-570kv motors
    battery 4s ?????
    prop 14 or 15" ?????

    So here are some pics....Overall good build quality and components packaged neatly with screws grouped accordingly. Biggest issue thus far is the poorly drilled arms. None of them were straight and I had to re drill all 4 arms on my drill press. It was a pain mounting the arm pivots.

    mine came with extra motor mount plates

    Seems to be good quality and sturdy when all buttoned up. Again I am ignorant to quad frames and could use some guidance on component placement.

    Oh and how are the two plates that go up around the gimbal mount supposed to be utilized??

    The same goodies arrived at my door today. I will run mine with 6s (2x 40C 4000mah 3S in series), 380kv sunny skies and some big-ass props (15"*5.5 mkII). I also ordered 4x 15cm-long 16mm carbon tubes, 4 sets of tarot foldable boom-end supports and boom-retaining brackets to make 4 landing legs that fold inwards to compact the quad for transport. But first things first, is there any explosion diagram or assembly manual, or do we have to google for photos of this quad to see how it all goes together?
