Quote from: XH558 on Sunday,April 28, 2013, 17:22:38 You';ve seen my posts - and you know I';m not in to kits - I prefer to fettle So I';m going to build a new quad to start off this FPV thing. At the moment I have a very successful, home built Hex with Naza and 6 DJI Opto escs and a simple ';X'; quad with KKv2 and 4 nice TBS escs.My plan is to break the Hex as I';ll need the Naza - and use the 4 x TBS escs off the exisiting quad ...I aim to ';copy'; / ';clone'; the TBS Discovery design as I plan to have both FPV camera and GoPro out front.I shall make the top and bottom plates from ply - my material of choice - it';s so versatile - and painted black it looks ok.Now to the opinions ....Breaking the Hex will give me plenty of 10mm square carbon tube - so the questions ....1) Do you think that 10mm sq tube will be good enough for the arms without support? (using the clamp carbon motor mounts I had on the quad)2) Would my other option of 15mm sq aluminium tube from B&Q be better? (with flat aluminium motor mounts bolted on from the existing quad)3) OR - radically - would it actually be better to do what TBS do and buy some DJI arms = motor mounts and legs built in....Obviously option 3 goes against the ';fettling'; grain - but I want it to be right and will sacrifice my innate desire to make things myself for decent ready made parts if it';s worth it.Then - I am scared sh*tless apprehensive about the various cable connections that need to be made and wonder if I should also swallow hard and get a TBS Core??What';s the feeling ... say it as it is and I';ll probably go with the best reasoning So - which arms?? - and Core or no Core??
