This is the first test flight I am attempting while using the X-CAM Tech X-CAM 100B 2 axis Brushless Gimbal. The initial results are very promising. Although there were some roll jitter issues (which I smoothed out using Deshaker), overall the 100B worked very well. I was also concerned that my re-configured Reptile Quad will not be able to handle the weight, but the test flight proved that the motors, props and battery configuration can more than handle the additional weight. All that is left for me is to re-tweak the roll gimbal settings. On another note, the previous carbon fiber propellers doesn’t seem to be generating much lift, changing to carbon nylon Gemfan 11×4.7 props improved the lift efficiency. 11 inchers are about the biggest props I can use, 12 inchers will hit each other. Overall, I’m very impressed with this product.

The X100B is powered by a 850mah 3S 25C Zippy Compact LiPo.
