The TBS clone is about finished  :cool:
Now fitted the 2 camera`s, we have the Amkov 5000 HD action camera and an eashine TX03 25/50/200 DVR unit for FPV<br /><br /><br /><br />
I also sorted out a niggle on the TX, i forgot i had a bit of mix from when it was set up for glider, so got rid of that, and lowered the gains, spent ages trawling the net to find a very good starting point

.... on a side note, my missus just caught me carrying all those into the livingroom in one go so I could get better light, I could see her mentally counting how many I was holding and her scowl got deeper the more she totted up..... Im so gonna have to buy her a new pair of shoes now<sigh> :sweating:

I've never had all my multirotors unpacked and sitting together before, So I thought "Hey, Here's the perfect excuse". I decided to omit any from this picture that couldn't have, at most, props and a Li-Po adding to be flyable, I've got quite a few that are stalled mid rebuild or new builds that I haven't had time to finish off yet, But as it stands I still count 15 working multirotors at the minute...... And that's probabbly enough for most people. :)



Going through them by size there is.....

An Eachine E010,
An Eachine E011,
An Eachine Q80 and a Q90,
A 100mm "Aggress",
An X112 on 3",
A pair of Liantian LT130 (One setup for the Li-Po on top, and the other underslung),
An Outlaw 180 on 5" props,
A couple of Martians. One is a 220 with 2205's on 5", And the others a 250 running 2403's on 6",
A Q250 with onboard DVR (And the worst CMOS camera ever..... Soon to go in the rebuild pile),
A Diatone 250FPV that I built from used spares I had kicking around (And flies much nicer than the specs would suggest !),
A Q330 that I added longer front arms to so I could run 9" folding props. Flies fine LOS, But I still havn't got around to finishing the servo tilt setup on it,
And the Q450 Hex camera platform (When I get around to it I'm going to DIY a folding Y6 frame for it with a raised camera gimble mount because it doesn't get much airtime due to being too big and ungainly to get in my car ! :) ).

So, That's my currently airworthy fleet.
On top of those there's also a Q280 I've been meaning to finish for about a year, It's going to have a reasonable CCD camera on it and an onboard DVR. There's also a Thorax Mini hex I've been putting off because the motors I originally got for it would have been able to suck 120A full whack. It would have been insanely quick, But it would also be able to puff packs instantly !!!! I've just got a set of 1806's to go on it that should bring it down to a much more manageable 60A. Oh, And almost forgot the pair of Quanum Trifecta tricopter frames I got ages back. I built one of them up and stumbled on how to control a servo from the clone F3 I'm intending to use. I'll revisit that one day........ Once I get time. :)
I need a pay rise........ Though I'd settle for a reduction in the amount of hours I need to work to get the same money.

Only have 3 flying at the moment, I’ve also got a lumenier qav250 and a fossilstuff gravity 280 gathering dust, but flying wise I’ve got my favourite 5 inch alien

Armattan scx200



And a banggood frame 2 inch(can’t remember the name!). Think it’s an elf95! Here it is with its batteries in my old fat shark goggles case!
