    I've had the 3DR frame kit for a while; couldn't turn down $15 during the DIY selloff and also bought a crap load of connectors and such.. It is a bit heavy for my liking, but having 3 Y6's I figured it was time to try an X8. What frame are you considering?

    The hardest part will be hiding it from the wife.

    I'll be selling a Sky Hero Spy 750 frame if anyone is interested. It has all Kylin motor mounts and landing gear T.

    Oh you bought the whole DIY kit including FC and motors? I waited too long to get any of those deals. I do have the Y6B bought as a kit 2 years ago.

    While I like the Spy 750, it is just too heavy. Many like it, and while it is every sturdy and stable flight, it's built like a tank.

    I just got the last 2 remaining x8+s at Aces Deals, for a little under half price. Will be using them for mutiple tasks but mostly for mapping/survey. One thing I noticed is that there's absolutely no mention anywhere in the documentation about the connector at the front, bottom plate of the X8. Anyone have a pinout or connection diagram?
