    So i just finished moving all the phantom electronics except motors and speedcontroller in a 666mm frame. Now it has 390kv motors with 16inch props.
    Yesterday i played with the gains for 3 hours and its getting better and better!
    If u have questions dont hesitate to ask!

    Yes !! please give some details as to what exact motors and ESC's you used as well as the frame set you chose. I love my phantom but I am getting older and don't see the small ship as well as I would like. This mod is very appealing to me. Just how close is it getting to being right ??

    Nice job! Where is your NAZA getting power from? And where did you mount the compass?

    It is unbelievably fast too! Well i moved the naza and the board under the naza into the new frame, so it gets the power from this board. I havent mounted the compass and gps yet but i will mount it on one of the arms on the back.

    Why did you change the motors? Weren't the original ones up to the task?

    Cool project. Exactly what I was looking for to do with my Phantom. I really love it, but I am fed up with having to land and change battery so often.
    30 min is perfect!

    So did you get rid of the Q-brain and use the phantom ESC instead?

    no I moved to turnigy multistar 45 amp... i know they are way too big but they can support 6s and i flashed them with simon k firmware :) Unfortunately one of the motors doesnt work anymore (my fault) so I can take pics and stuff in about one week when the next one arrives from hobbyking. I got my 2x10w leds from china they are AMAZING!! but i have to run them with a fan because they will burn themselves without it :p
