    We need to decide which remotes to use.
    Currently we have the following to pick from:
    - Graupner Hott MX-20 2.4GHz 12 Channel / GR-24
    - Futaba T8FG 2.4GHz 14 Channel
    - Spektrum DX8 2.4GHz 8 Channel
    - JR X9503 2.4GHz 9 Channel
    Or expectation is to use the MX-20 for CS8 flight, and to use the DX-8 for the Radian 360 Gimbal.


    We would recommend the PowerHungrySystems.com distribution system. buy them from UAVrotorking.com.

    I had to make one, because I couldn't get one in my hands fast enough.

    For ESCs, we chose the Castle Creations 75a ICELITE ESC for Multi-rotors with 400mHz refresh

    - Ideally we would have like the SimonK Maytech 60a ESC

    For Aux power: 2- Castle Creations 10a BEC /ESC
    - one @5.1v to power the reciever and FPV
    - one @6v to power the the LEDS

    Also had to whip-out a lasercut polycarbonate plate to mount everthing to, now I just need some proper spacers.

    Please let me know your thoughts.

    What power laser cutter did you use to cut polycarb? I've got a 60 watt CO2 and it doesn't like cutting polycarb at all....

    Other than that, it looks like a mean machine!
    I really like the MX-20 tx for flight control -- especially that you can get it to provide spoken audio flight battery readouts so you don't have to take your eyes of the bird.
