    Just did a first flight with a f550 I'm putting together
    E300 motors/9450 9" self tightening props/multi star 10.0 batt, I got approx 28 mins mainly hover around time, stayed within 200 ft due to windy conditions surprisingly it was pretty stable with minimal stick to hover.
    This is my first build and curious what is normal flight times and such
    What would be a good inexpensive camera setup besides GoPro setup
    mainly FPV
    What loads could I carry?

    Hey Arcticzr, I just noticed your post and was really surprised that no one responded in over seven months. I'm just starting to build my F550, should be here by the weekend, but I do have some camera thoughts to share with you.

    I'm using a gopro clone called an SJCAM SJ4000. Same size and weight as GP, but hundreds less. You still get HD 1080p videos and you can fly FPV at the same time you are recording video. The FPV setup is in my sig. Hope I'm not too late, and you're still flying...
