My new quad - tarot 650 build
« on: November 06, 2018, 10:09:49 »
Here we go again  :rolleyes:

Specs so far;

Tarot 650 frame, currently just manual landing gear but I'll be upgrading when I can.

Naza m v2 fc
Flysky radio gear
N3 osd
Boscam Vtx with eachine cloverleaf (in post somewhere)
Generic pdb
Gartt 5008 400kv motors
18" props
Vifly finder2 (in post somewhere)
Generic voltage alarm
Flysky voltage sensor
Hglrc 30A bl_heli dshot escs
4s 6000mah batteries
Hakrc storm 32 gimbal (apparently works with sbus but we'll see)
I'm stuck at the moment, I need long power and signal wires for the motors (escs) but they're in the post somewhere  :waiting:

For now though I thought I'd share my progress, the props miss eachother, just.

<br /><br />

This build will take quite a while yet; I decided I wasn't very keen on how close the props are so I have ordered some lengths of tube to make longer arms. The downside is the 3weeks or more I'll now have to wait.

I also ordered retractable landing gear though, quite excited about that.

Nice, if you need any advice on the naza give me a shout, not an expert but got a rough idea, would it have been better to go with smaller props, maybe 15"
I am doing a new build with the S600, similar setup it can take up to 17" props but only going with 1355 as i really dont like bad propwash descending, hoping to get all the motors,esc`s and naza MV1 in sunday morning
DJI P3......home build AQ600....Ranger 1600...2x Wing wing Z84....Wildthing 46 in build
Sweet dreams and flying machines in pieces on the ground

The 18's were quite a bit more efficient according to ecalc, I'll only really know about the propwash once it's airbourne.

With the naza, I'm ok with it really so far but I may need a bit of a rough quide to tuning the gains when I get there - there's mixed views as to whether it'll even work ok with frames over 650mm but I'll have a good try before I cough up for a different fc.

I do have a difficult decision to make once my tube gets here, it's coming as 4 lengths at 500mm - it's very tempting to simply leave them at 500 and have a 1050mm frame  :blink I'll have a think - an 800mm frame's probably more suitable really though - any thoughts would be much appreciated  ~

One thing to consider is transport. Can you fit a 1m frame in your car?

my car, yes - might mean I can't borrow a car or travel in someone else's car though  :shrug:

Soo, I guess the obvious question is; was I right to think 1/4" ish is too close? And, if so, what's considered the limit?

My guess, and it is only a guess is that 6mm is too close but it depends of how much side movement your arms have. Just checked my 5" quad and there is 6mm between props front to back, BUT they are 4mm thick carbon arms that are about 20mm wide!! So not much flex to close the 6mm gap.

Maybe try gently pushing motors towards each other and see if tips of props could touch. If they can don't risk it!!!!!

good thinking  ~~ they're pretty stiff but I wouldn't be surprised, it's not a long way to move after all
