  • Bad Raven: I think a lot of us will have seen the published (leaked) training instructions to police officers on FPV, which was both incomplete and incorrect. Only the Little Hitler types will be comfortable treading any of that path!

  • Reman: Thought for the day - If a knowledgeable police officer stopped you and saw that you had a "600mW" VTX on your quad he'll get funny about it, But would even a VERY knowledgeable officer know what they were looking at if the same VTX had a professional looking label under the heat shrink that proclaimed that the VTX was in fact a 25mW unit?  :hmm:

  • Uhh! What's that then, Oh! new project.
Came across this on my wanderings.

https://davesrc.blogspot.com/2017/04/k-su-rough-plans.html

Just the thing for my spare bits and bobs.


SS2204 motors
LB20A ESC

Mixture of 3S and 4S batteries depends what balances.

I'll be putting a FC in it as my RX has been de-pinned, too much of a pain to work out how to solder the servos to it, also want OSD.

Im building a wing with my odd motors and escs too. Got some small servos kicking about from my rc cars. Might as well put them to use

well its more of a kit, Sonic Modell AR, the wing itself is only about £50
i have x3 2205 2300kv motors from a quad i wrecked, 1 motor got hit hard and deformed the bell and i couldn't get hold of another one, so this is a good way to put these odd motors to some use
already got some 3s 2200mah 40C lipos that i use in my RC trucks
all i need to get the wing up in the air is the wing itself, fpv cam and vtx

Same situation here.I ended up building a Reptile S800 with a cheapo Omnibus F4 and a spare odd 2204 and a bag of servos I was given.
A few hours on a sim were put in before the maiden.
It took a fair few knocks(mostly from Auto Launch  failures).But after a couple of flights maybe 20minutes I found I could do figure 8s and get it down in one piece.
The big difference is less time and maneuverability to recover from noob pilot ****** ups
But be warned it's another drain on the credit card.Iv'e found fixed wings just as adictive as multi's.

Slow progress.

My daughter wanted to do the build herself, with a little help. So she has taken over but doesn't get too much free time.

Got the electronics mounted but burnt out the servos when a regulator went dodgy.

Working on the fuselage now.
