Flight performance I measured the hover current at an indoor flying meeting using a Hyperion eMeter v2 and Remote Data Unit.  The average current was 23.35A @ 10.87V (254W) when using a Turnigy Nano-Tech 3S1P 3300mAh LiPo pack.

The Scorpion is quite stable but requires small corrections to be made.  There is, however, a lot of tuning that can be done in the KK2.0 Multi-rotor LCD Flight Control Board.

3 Jun 13 - I flew a couple of flights with the Scorpion indoors this evening.  I just need to finish the gimbal camera platform to complete the model.

31 May 13 - I've been slowly assembling this multi-rotor and finally got around to connecting everything to the control board and giving it a quick check.  I still need to complete the configuration but it should be finished pretty soon.  I have yet to build the camera gimbal frame as the kit was missing a part.
