FPV Flightclub PROton
« on: December 20, 2017, 21:49:52 »
Whilst I am entirely hooked on my Air Ro (running three of them) to the exclusion of my 5 inch frames, I feel it is time for an ultra light 5 inch.
Love the low profile look of this frame, it is on its way and all other parts here so thought I would start a build thread:

Frame: FPV FlightClub PROton (Skeleton format)
http://fpv-flightclub.com/215g-race-quad/

Flight controller: Sunrise Siskin F4/30 amp blheli32 aio
(Going for light with blheli32 escs, on 48khz pwm ultra smooth)
https://www.electricwingman.com/sunrise-siskin-aio-fc-30a

Motors: ZMX finX23 IJN Umikaze
Again with the ultralight, just under 24grams without wires. 2205 2600kv so gonna be careful with prop choice

that build thread is notably avoiding 2 somethings when stating its weight?

I might be wrong, maybe I missed it but when listing the full build list there's no mention of battery or for that matter props.

are they even included in that auw?

if not..... its not exactly "lightweight" anymore, at the minimum I doubt it weighs in under the 250 mark??

It isn’t gonna be under 250gram AUW, to do that you have to use a 40grams or less frame, 14xx motors, 850mah lipo and light props. The ultra light racers are about 210-220gram without lipo. (Think Floss or CMW superlight or Norris built light)
Lipos are typically 1300mah or 1500mah depending on if they can get the course done on 1300 with the motor/prop/AUW. Generally they try and get down close to 350gran AUW which is considerably lighter than your average 5 inch quad

Ok built and maidened.
Will get maiden footage sorted later, nothing exciting, but nice

Thoughts -WITCHCRAFT

The frame is a delight to build, Mike has, as usual put a lot of thought in to it, there are bags of stuff you don’t get on other quads. It is seriously well thought out and near. If you only buy one frame this year, buy this one!!

He actual sent me the 5.5 inch arms, and I quite like them, good for stability, very little weight increase.

I also ditched the 25mm standoffs it comes with and built it with 20mm

Lamule -could easily accommodate split. Also mate, take a try of the 5040 cyclones if you haven’t already, for your kind of acro photography they seem brilliant as well as very efficient

Running bf3.2.3, reversed yaw, 8khz/4khz, dshot1200, all gyro filters removed, dynamic filtering enabled
Latest blheli32 with motor pwm turned up to 48khz

So the big question for me........

Something like this or the AIR-RO, (I have been holding out to see if the motors will come back in stock on the Kit) for a beginner?

For a beginner? Air ro, has slightly less top end but nit lacking, more robust, peerless agility, almost indestructible and cheap to run

That looks nice. I like the vtx antenna mounting position, should be quite safe.
Did you manage to get it under 250gms with batt?

Lol wasn’t trying to mate, no where near, done that on 2 quads as an exercise but you can’t do it with standard component, the ultralight racers AUW are around 350-400grams AUW

I just saw the bit about 'ultra light 5 inch' and thought you might have succeeded in sub 250 ::)
Oh well we will have to wait for the stupid gov rules to see the weight limits. If they ever sort themselves out that is.
