    David have you looked at the videos posted by Quadrocopter? check their YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/user/quadrocopterllc/videos You will need some additional parts due to the size. 200mm boom arms, onger drop tube, preferrably 4 of the metal boom clamps and the adjustable tilt bars. Also a nice to have is the adjustable camera rail. All are explained and can be seen in the video.

    We just mounted a RED Epic Monday.

    • 200mm boom arms,
    • Dual Bearing Tilt Axis to replace Pot
    • Longer drop tube,
    • 2 of the metal boom clamps @ Longer Dropdown tube boom arms
    • 2 of the metal boom clamps @ Roll Axis tube boom arms
    • Adjustable tilt bars.
    • 2 of the metal Tilt clamps
    • Adjustable camera rail.
    • 2 of the metal boom clamps to hold Adjustable Rail

    Just make sure you CG is setup with all the extra weight.
    It was too much for our units old motors... so we are looking to upgrade after I service all the motor bearings.

    But now for some reason the Radian doesn't work right, so i'm going to reload the Frimware to v1.03
