Rotorx atom rebirth
« on: April 08, 2017, 13:54:48 »
Had a catastrophic esc wipeout,quite literaly all the esc got shot.it was also on a naze using a 5v pololu,esc were all daisy chained.

This time.

20a racestar esc.
1306 emax red bottoms.
Dtfc (pdb/fc allin1)
Flysky x6b (think it is) rx.
Dys 25/200 vtx (runs off 5v)
1/4 600tvl cmos camera.
Realacc rhcp antenna.

Am waiting on replacing the vtx fir another that can have the sma connector removed easier as i tried on one already and ripped the pads off trying so getting alternate replacement,then i will run a skinny antenna.

Its wearing dys 3030 tris (think its 3030) its a screamer,realy fast on 800 65c 4s.

I was looking at this frame, its super compact, probably as small as you can go with 3 inch props, if i break the tyrant (which I doubt) or i want something lighter i might get one of these, cant you get some cool looking cowling/canopy for them?

This is the first version,dont think its got the mounts for canopy where the v2 has,also this first version cant take 20x20 based circuitry so another negative.

Props are 3030 and realy thats the biggest it will take in this configuration,to run 3530 it would need to be a lot slimmer for blades to spin over top of body.

I kinda prefer micro sub 150ish quads,there is a 83mm version of this also but i got a bobo 95.

Its a scream,this would be insane with 1407!

it'll be off the rails on 1407,for whats there i will take it and my diatone 150 with tornados on up park and fly a battery on each as i only have 2,then see which gets round fastest.if its as fast as the 1407 then staying on the 1306 red bottoms.

Just a chilling update,i trashed this today in a ruddy big crash!

Wouldnt have been so bad if was grass but i ended up fir first time hitting a road!

Lucky noone got hurt or property,i cant explain what happened but the atom was well twitchy and i lost it out front where i live.i thought i crashed in the grounds but it was outside the fence and hit a busy road.i was looking for it and an asian lady came up holding it to the wall and went "is this yours"

I was lucky but the quad got trashed,lost 2 motor nuts,bust 2 props.ripped off both antenna from rx,rx was left on road so had to retrieve it.the top plate is broke good and proper!

So i have removed its gubbins until i can either buy another complete new frame or top plate.i think someone was selling one months ago.

Coincidently i ordered a diatone spadger frame today so will hopefully plop its gibbins into that,so watch out in couple weeks time for another 150 build.

Tada! I gave birth to it for second time,yep i know,it was reborn,then trashed and reborn again (boring part over)

I bought some of the gorilla epoxy resin stuff and use a bit of lollpop stick,epoxied the front mount hole part on top frame,then after it set,filed it down and then epoxied the lollipop stick in place,that set then i filed that down.

Rebuilt and test hovered,same esc,motors but i have use a holybro kakute v1 aio,the dtfc was twitching.i am swapping the vtx out for another with a floppy antenna direct soldered to save weight.just gotta wait for hot glue gun as i broke mine couple days ago.

Hovers great.
