Thats awesome! Any close-up shots of how you have that all wired up?
Hi guys, I can't hold a candle to your groovy stuff but I'm new and here is what I have. Call it the Cinestar HD, as in Home Depot. Everything painted black to look like carbon.
And here is what it can do. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_profilepage&v=LT7YcFmm90o

How do you like the Xoars?
Hi Jon, Xoar have exeptional performance, very good conception and light weight, easy to eqilibrate.i' m very happy with these props.
More performance than plastic props for sure...
Marc, are you constantly tightening down the prop nut on the Zoars? I love zoars but I find myself constantly tightening down the prop mount bolt, I guess because of wood compression. I'm sometimes nervous about prop slippage with the zoars.
I don 't have this problem of tightening but, i must say that I always check the tightness of the propeller before each day i use my CS. In France these propellers are used a lot and I have don't ever heard something about this problem, on the other hand, i know that some plastic propellers have broken on machines that carry heavy cameras and run motors with KV unsuitable but no, no problems with the XOAR ...
I mean XOAR Wood or Carbon...May be the best propellers actually...
Just installed the Radian controllers on my CineStar 6 - the below video shows the setup and initial test stability - and it seems that the factory default settings works well. Roll gain: 70 and tilt gain 110. Looking forward to the first real areal video recording.

2 day ago I was flying testing and training my prospect camera op in a nice quiet park suddenly 2 fire truck park near us and a big choper circle above us one fire official started to approach us, so I though man this is ridiculous they are coming to get us for flying in the FAA USA airspace, and they are deploying all their big toys for us little guys with a spider looking craft........hey not so fast they ask us to get out of the way because that big choper had to land in OUR park to pick up an accident victim.......sure no problem officer right away we move, latter I said to my camera op, Hey you know what, we where there firs with our copter, who do they think they are ....jaja......by the way having a rolling cart like a Magliner with the top and bottom trays is super great and convenient ...
HAHA nice! The cart is a great idea!
We just got a small table to carry with us to put things on.
Hey Guys, here are some pictures of my new-design bird with Radian(s) and more...
I'm enjoying these pictures and looking at what others are doing with their set-ups. Thanks for posting guys.
Heres my cs6 with wookong
Here are a few pics of our CS8.
Currently being upgraded with new motors and Castle 50amp esc's...been watching Josh's build closely.
Red Epic...beast, blew an esc flying this!
Calling for a battery!
Craig: Could you expand a bit on "blew an ESC," please? Was it one of the Castle 50's?
Many months ago before I did my first Red Epic shoot I was doing Red test flights and one of the eight MK ESC's overheated and discontinued working. I'm no electronic wizard but the indicator light went red on the one esc and MK software indicated a BL error, replaced and all good, but in the last few months I have had 2 more MK esc's go "bad" and not always from pushing the motors and esc's like I did with the Red. Soooo, now that more clients are calling and wanting heavier cameras I've decided to upgrade to Castle ESC's and new motors using the www.abusemark.com 12c converter. I'm pretty happy with MK flight and navi board, also have a Hoverfly set-up, but wasn't too happy with the flight behavior I was getting. Did some test flights with new Castle 50amp esc's and old QC motors and feels pretty good. CS currently on the bench in pieces being re-built with new motors!
