    Hi all,

    Just recently built my F450 E300 kit which went without incident. Took it out for its maiden hovering session and noticed that just before takeoff, the left leg at the rear does a very noticeable high speed wobble as it's lifting off. When airborne, it hovers beautifully but the takeoff issue is scaring me a bit. Anyone got any ideas what could be causing this?

    Thanks.

    Could you record a video clip of it so we can take a look and give a better judgement? Some shaking at takeoff, especially on the white "spider leg" stock DJI gear (which I assume you're using?) is natural, but it's hard to say without seeing it.

    Thanks for the response :) I'll try to get that together next flying opportunity. I've moved the LED module inwards as it was mounted on to the side of the offending leg's foot, although I have no idea if it'll make any difference. BTW, yup, it's all stock DJI components at the moment: Flamewheel 450, E300s, 2212s, NAZA M v2, RX16, iOSD Mini.
