Tiny build
« on: January 11, 2017, 20:26:32 »
Finally got enough. It's to start putting it together.

Instructions for the frame are simple enough tho the screw are so small that I'm bound to lose one.

Didn't get very far tonight but should do some more tomorow.


I'm going to trim the motor wires to the shortest I can get away before soldering it all together

Fun fun fun

Which Motors are they if DYS Micro then do not trim the wires just lose the excess somehow.

Dont ask How I know but the wires on DYS 110x motors are crap and very difficult to work with.

You used rotorx motors?i fitted all 4 1104 4000 to mine,i didnt have motor mounting bolts so had to buy some of ebay but i found i couldnt quite get the bolt through the motor mounting hole,ended up having to use a round hobby file to enlarge the holes a bit more to allow the bolts to slip through easily.

I got pretty much same fc and esc to come buy banggood held items for 7 days as 1 item wasnt in stock and took em that long to contact me to ask me what to do,so some stuff shipping late.

I am gonna use a 1/4 cmos 600tvl and use a new eachine tx unit,not an all in 1 unit.i ordered some of them dys tris (think 2") off banggood,also yet to ship due to stock issue.

What you think of the frame?i like it but time will tell if it hits hard objects!

Interested to see what yours looks like and weighs (reminds me to buy a digital scale) and flys like.

They are dys 7000kv motors and they came with suitable screws :)

In regards to the frame itself. There was a little bit of delamination but nothing to worry about. Certainly seems robust!

I'm yet to order props, batteries and an rx.



So the question is why can't I shorten the cables?

Trimmed the first 2 cables then decided it wasn't worth it. Those cables are a swine to solder

If the wires are like rotorx I am with ya!skinniest wire core I have ever come across and weird rubbery insulation :blink

I got my picoblx today,think that's what you got there,from Banggood?i bought that and another 20x20 similar to it also,Banggood held up the esc in another order just coz some props were not in stock!!!!

Am watching as I have never done a 4in1 to a fc with pdb built in,you gonna power the battery to the esc or fc and connect the power points or vice Versa?

Not sure which way round I'm going to power it. Probably esc to fc... however I have messed up on soldering tab 4 and have bridged the tab with the chips terminals. Then my iron ran out of gas so need to get some more before I try and repair the damage.

It is sooo very very fiddly however

I assume that you are tinning the wires before you try and solder them to the esc pads? Tinning both the pad and the cables before placing them together to solder will make it a much easier and reliable job.

I am yes. Or well trying too. The motor wires seem to be a single core and so small they don't suck up the solder like multicore cable

So curl them,expose enough wire,get a toothpick or something and twirl the wire into a circle,flux and tin.

I am eyeing up racestar 1407,this frame on 1407,there's a new esc/fc micro tower yet to be released that will more likely do 3-4s,with that in there the frame will shatter with a 75% punch!

It's not that they don't suck up solder ... they are lacquered ... you need to scrape, burn or do something to remove the lacquer

I'm going through the same hassle at the moment .... considering scrapping them for something else!!
