Check out this video to see how the quadcopter is armed.





Quad copter test 1….FAIL





After this test the PXFmini GIPO pin connection sheared from the PCB board and became useless. But from the video evidence I suspect that the trim on the remote may have been to an extreme right and also a bad ESC calibration. I am waiting for a new PXFmini to come in and I will retry.

There have been some modifications of the design on the quad:


  • Shorter legs with Lipo Battery slot made from ABS plastic.
  • Roll cage that will save PXFmini from future crashes.
