Re: Plastic Bot of Destruction

This was meant to be a 3D printer project, I will be offering 2D components for sale on my web site as long as there is a demand for them. Currently I don't plan on releasing the 2D plans for the parts.

Re: Kronos Flyer Series

The Fast motors have nothting to do with the radio or its settings. You have to connect your NAZA to you rPC and change the "Motor Idle Speed" under the Motot Tuning Tab to Low instead of normal.

That should solve your problem.

Re: Kronos Flyer Series

You can not open the Naza Sbus file directly. You have to download the Futaba file utility.(Links are on my site). You have have a 1GB SD card. (Dont use a larger card) Follow the import and export instructions on my website.

FYI I just went throug them and the work fine.
