  • Reman: Got stuck in traffic yesterday. After an hour I started using my phone (And an OTG cable) to look through the media files on a keyring of my old USB sticks. Found one that had the entire run of "Firefly" on it. I got through 3 episodes before the traffic started moving again....... God, That really was an amazing show.

  • mo_miah: Gav- if its a camera ship then TBS crossfire is definitely what you need, the FrSky has limited channels and telemetry options, TBS crossfire has much better features and more channels to control camera gimbals etc

  • hoverfly: I coated a couple of Slipstreams  a few years ago  It stiffened up the wing nicely .On the down side although it prevented dings when i had an high speed"arrival" it left the resin cracked. and the glass lifted slightly.  Well stuck laminate stiffens the wing and is flexible..

  • DarkButterfly: I'm doing laminate, just put my order in for some, also got some balsa wood for the side parts, had to use a kitchen knife to seperate the foam from the busted wood

  • atomiclama: @DB well you obviously need a bigger motor and ESC, as flying slower is just not possible.  ::)

  • hoverfly: If you put a couple of coats of Eze Kote on the wing before the laminate it sticks really well ..no lifting.. :smiley:

  • DarkButterfly: If it makes you feel better, I’m going to completely refurbish my falcon Evo with new balsa sides and new laminate ~~

Everyone needs a little B-roll
« on: September 10, 2018, 16:36:56 »
Getting this one together, some stuff on the way (other stuff I am open to suggestions on

X-hover B-roll (on the way)
https://xhover.com/products/copy-of-b-roll-micro-hd
(Couple of extra 3d printed bits which Greg is kindly doing for me off thingverse, notably an axii ufl Mount and the increasing infamous apple antenna (I-mortal T) Mount

Rotor-x 1404 3600kv spinning 3044 T mount props (on the way) frame only supports 9mm mounting pattern. Could have gone 3s 1106ish but who wants to play nicely with others.

Runcam split mini v2
Clracing mini f4 (chosen for 3 exposed uninverted uarts - split, CRSF and smartaudio
Favourite cloud Phoenix 10amp blheli32 esc - considered 20amp but 10 amp with 15amp burst should handle it according to static thrust tests.
Tbs crossfire nano se
Tbs unify nano (cos I am owed one but thinking of perhaps taking a larger unify, powered from pololu 5v reg.
Tbs racewire mini if they fit the arms
Axii ufl
Smallish low ear cap

Aiming for 3inch short x top mount lipo under 250 grams, hopefully 659mah 4s lipo should cut it

I am taking a gimbal that the motor/prop combo will have enough oomph. :)

The frame would be spot on if they put 12mm motor mount holes on it and moved the rear stack back about 2mm

dude, there is a clone of that frame with 12mm motor mounts
The frame is so incredibly simple, it was only a matter of time.

https://www.banggood.com/B-Roll-Frame-Kit-37_9g-p-1338876.html

I'm mildly ashamed that I got one...but it did come together very well  :evil




Total weight is just under 160g before battery. I've only got to fly one pack through it, a 850mah 4s and it lasted over 5 minutes  :laugh:

The included camera mounts are brittle PLA so I found this mount and printed it in TPU https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2685949

Interesting, of course chinesium, but motors already on route, will see how it goes (160 gram is heavier than I am aiming for)
(Actually I got what I assume is a garbage response from xhover suggesting the real one fits 14xx, don’t believe it but we will see)
Gotta laugh at banggood, the frame is dead cat layout, the picture of the quad on the scales has the top plate back to front, the blurb says 4mm bottom plate and 5mm top plate, just gibberish ;)

Don’t be ashamed, it is a good layout wander about the arm strength but if my original blue aka I know what I am shopping for next

Yeah, chinesium...though they actually got the weave in the right direction this time.
It's actually not a dead cat...where the rear motors are closer together...it's just the swept back rear arms that make it look that way... the motors are actually in a rectangular format, more H style

we'll see how this holds up though... bottom plate is quite thin for these beastly motors though

Yeah you are correct to be completely accurate about dead cat with regards to the motor layout but the arm layouts of the b-roll follows dead cat in order to keep the front props out the cam.

The direction of the carbon weave is misleading, the top and bottom layers of the laminate are the most important ones but those layers in between will point in other directions depending on what type of carbon it is

Damn this looks so nice. I'm very tempted to get one and swap over my bangarang build to this frame, the props-out-of-view is the seller for me ...

Motors arrived, built it up with HGLRC XJB428 stack and an xm+ to test fly, very smooth

Hicks weight check, 179grams, by the time I fit the split and replace the xm+ with crossfire guessing about 220grams

Quick flight test with 4s suggest I may need to rethink the pressfit props
