    Grasshopper multirotor

    Any chance you could provide more details on these new multis listed on your website? There is no info at all elsewhere and the listings leave out too many questions. Please provide more details here if you can

    I was finally able to order a Grasshopper 300. What power distribution board are you using for this?

    Any will work, or you could just solder the wires directly. This thing flies great on 4s with cobra 1960kv motors and hq prop 5x4 props. Just as good as my regular Blackout Mini Hex actually, since they pretty much have the same gear. Only difference is after some alterations, I've got this grasshopper a bit lighter than my Blackout. I took off the bottom battery plate and those useless bobbins and just strap the battery directly to the bottom of the hex now. I did put some standoffs on the bottom to act as landing gears and to protect the battery. The thing is pretty tough as I've crashed it into gravel and concrete several times already. Only things I've broken were props and I did lose one of the vibration dampeners from the hd cam plate. Quality wise, the actualy cf is fine, but the holes drilled are horrible. Half of them were either too big or too small. Otherwise, its a nice mini hex, especially considering the price.

    I just received my Grasshopper 300 today. What is the recommended way to securely install a FatShark 600 TVL camera to the FPV camera mounting plate?
