Ok, instead of Gimbal stuff i'm going to sell the big CF rig of mine. Flys great on the basic KK2.1 and with a 100 buck gimbal shot great video. However its built for a bigger camera that i'll never bother sending it up with and way overkill for me. The FPV works but never had the opportunity to use it due to being around folks and uncomfortable with testing.

Its a Tarot 680 Pro, folds up nicely for transport.
Has Turnigy 690KV motors and Carbon Fiber props (including a full plastic spare set and 4 pairs of extra NEW CF props)
Afro ESCs - unsure of flashed/updated or not but they controlled perfectly.
middle and front struts are wrapped in two different LED colors and powered by their own ESC.
FPV is the basic Hobby king FPV setup that has the foam case face piece
Battery is a 30c 5000mah 4cell
Controller is a Flysky setup

Frame - Tarot 680PRO HexaCopter Folding Frame 3K Carbon (KIT)
$114

Motors - Turnigy Multistar 4822-690Kv 22Pole Multi-Rotor Outrunner (AR Warehouse)
6x $33 = $198

ESCs - Afro ESC 30Amp Multi-rotor Motor Speed Controller (SimonK Firmware)
6x $14 = $84

Controller - FlySky FS-T6 2.4ghz Digital Proportional 6 Channel Transmitter and Receiver System
$55

Extra BEC - brand not sure, $5

Battery - ZIPPY Flightmax 5000mAh 4S1P 30C
$40

FPV setup - Quanum Complete FPV Bundle Set w/ Goggles, 5.8GHz 32ch Video TX & RX, CP Antennas and Camera(PNF)

$75

Gimbal (not the one pictured) - servo based and good for still pictures but not video
$10

Just under 600 bucks worth of gear basically and fully assembled/test flown and documented.

Pictures!

Sample video of it that was with the gimbal pictured that is NOT included unless you want to add another $100 in (which you can buy them for on Amazon). Raw footage:

Asking $500 and really suggest Local to the Chicago area.

Here first and then onto CL later today.

I have not built one I hit the "But it now" button on a vortex 285 and my flying buddy has a vortex 250 pro. They are a blast. Bought it at Christmas still don't have a good handle on FPV I fly it line of sight much better but I'm getting better.

Late reply, but I built a little 250 racer. Nice little build, very tidy.

Unfortunately I cant even begin to fly the thing. Just hovering it around or trying to fly a pattern is challenging. I have no idea how these guys race them.

I'm guessing that it's the same kids that were mocking me 10 years ago in Unreal Tournament instagib games.

Same here. I can fly the **** out of my larger stuff on full manual, but my 250 is a nightmare.
