    Will find out then :-). The frame claims to be rated for up to 13 inch props. In the meantime, redid my harness for the LEDs. A bit cleaner than a bunch

    Tried setting the timings to medium and high. Both caused the motors to have "stutters" at certain percentages, so will stick to the LOW timing

    • Octo X, Octo +, Octo X8

    Flight options supported:
    • Heading hold with magnetometer or gyro
    • Altitude hold with barometer
    • Altitude hold with ultrasonic sensor (best for low altitude hold and terrain following)

    Enhanced battery monitoring options:
    • Measurement of battery voltage, used capacity and current
    • Enable auto descent on critical battery voltage
    • Auto-detect battery cell count
    • Integration with On Screen Display (OSD)

    Multiple receiver options:
    • Up to 10 channel receivers supported
    • PWM receivers
    • PPM receivers
    • PPM using hardware timer
