The updated version of the QAV500 kit, version 1.1, is now in stock at GetFPV. This version introduces the updated Power Distribution Board (“PDB”) that had the potential to result in electrical shorts when both side’s of the PDB were scratched at the screw, spacer, and arm connections. Current kit version 1.0 owners are urged to either install nylon washers on all of the screw heads that are touching the PDB or to upgrade their PDB to the now available v1.1 board.
In other news, user berthrsds has reported great results with XOAR wood 10×6 prop pairs on the QAV500. See the video below for incredible performance and stability due to the high quality of these props.
