Mega Hexacopter LIFTER

This is a short intro on the Heavy Lift Conversion Kit from AerialMediaPros.com CNC'd and anodized our own Aluminum Motor plates. These are ready to mount your Avroto or AXI 2814 motors. They extend the length of the arm, allowing you to run a 11-12" Prop. With this added power and prop combo, you can now safely fly a decent sized Camera Gimbal and DSLR camera. The Copter shown is a F550 NAZA ARF, Built with The AMP Conversion Set, AXI 2814/22 motors, Droidworx Exstended Landing Gear, Photohigher AV130 Gimbal, FPV 520 Cam, and 1.3 Ghz Video TX. The video was a little rough due to the Cheap, Unbalanced Slow Fly Props. I am sure video will be much smoother and clear once the Xoar props arrive. Weight Of F550 Converted with AXI motors, Gimbal, Landing gear, RTF without lipo = 2404 grams Weight RTF With 8000 mAh Lipo, Landing gear, AV130, and Canon T2i= 4042 grams With this RTF set up, and 11X3,8 Props, I was getting right at 5min flight time flying the Canon T2I (766 grams). Exspect closer to 10 min with a GoPro or lighter camera. In the stock configuration, with the larger motors, 11x3.8 props, and conversion kit (No landing gear, camera, or gimbal) I was getting 15.36min flight time using a 4S 6000mAh lipo. TO ORDER the CONVERSION KIT visit AerialMediaPros.com, and visit the store.package including the mounts and (6) Avroto motors available.


Battle H Virus Tutorial Introduction

I love quads that you can fly and that don't break when you land heavy like I do. While I was waiting for the Honey Badger (http://fpvlab.com/forums/showthread.php?11777-Honey-Badger-is-ready-for-takeoff!) to arrive on my doorstep over Christmas, being a DIY'er, I put together this little quad.

This frame is combination of Fleshpilot's H-Virus and Helliyea's Battle quad. Combining these two ideas I have come up with a quad that doesn't break all too easy, and yes I have tried. This is a 400 sized quad that can carry a gopro without the props in view. Another bonus is that most of the electronics are hidden within the quad. This prevents water, dirt and impact damage. It runs on 8 inch props but the same principles can be used to increase the size for different uses/props. I also made this much bigger (550 size) in testing and it worked well. It is completely symmetrical so it is pretty easy to tune.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/finished.JPG

The great thing about this quad is that getting the vibrations out isn't too hard. Here in this maiden I have chipped props from an earlier crash test and the picture looks pretty impressive. With new props and more effort into mounting the gopro it should become vibration free.

So clean your workbench and get ready for a very simple, cheap build.

Building Instructions

Step 1
Cut each 20mm PVC tube to 340mm in length.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step1.JPG

Step 2
Cut the coroplast length wise. The width is 64 flutes or ~ 190mm. Make sure you use a steel ruler and a very sharp knife.

Step 3
Cut the height/length to 365mm.
http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step2.JPG

Step 4
Count 12 flutes in and carefully cut the first layer. Cut the 13th, 20th and 45th flute.
Tip: Score tween the flute with blade/ruler. Then cut through the layer.
Tip: Cut the side closest to the side of a beam (the deck). This gives more space for the tape and arm to fit later.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step4a.JPG
http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step4b.JPG
http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step4c.JPG

Step 5

Cut the top plate and the sides to 325mm. The top plate is two parts of 12 flutes. You will be left with the plate where the gopro will mount onto.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step5.JPG

Step 6

Cut the sides at 25mm and 305mm. This means the back has a 25mm space and the front a 20mm space. Make this as square as possible.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step6a.JPG
http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step6b.JPG

Step 7
Mark the center of the bottom plate and arms.
http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step7.JPG

Step 8
Add holes for the motors. The motor is 150mm from the center of the arm.
Tip: Mark the center and then use the motor mount to line up the holes perfectly. So the first drill point will be 142/140.5mm.
Tip: Put the holes in the middle of the tube. Offsetting it can lead to problems screwing them in later.
Tip: If you have 16mm/19mm style motors then have one side with 16mm holes while the other 19mm holes.
Tip: Drill holes right through as it will help with mounting the motors later.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step8.JPG

Step 9
Mount motors for direction of the feed. I forgot to do this so my wire fold forward not back. Measure out 16AWG wire and solder onto the motors. Don't add gold connectors until later. This doesn't have to be done but it does help with next step.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step9.JPG

Step 10
Drill a hole in the middle of the arms. ~ 20mm x 12mm.
Tip: Put on motors and screw them in. then feed wire through.
Tip: Remember to cut the motor shaft if it touches the wires (picture not done).

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step10c.JPG
http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step10d.JPG


Step 11

Add extras to the arms such as LED lights. I have each run starting at 45mm from the center of the arm. 2 x 3mm holes are drilled for the wire.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step10e.JPG


Step 12

Put down double-sided mounting tape on the bottom plate. Leave the cover on. Trim the inside of the flutes where the arms mounts. This helps fitting it all in. Dry fit the arms. Don't stick them down yet.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step11.JPG
http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step12a.JPG
http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step12b.JPG

Step 13

Lay out everything in the quad. Dry fit everything. Once happy stick down the esc, receiver and LC filter (velcro or DD tape). Add on the gold connectors.
Tip: The front esc are push to one side (right). This allows a strap for the gopro later. The go pro needs the lens in the middle for no prop in view.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step13.JPG

Step 14

Take the cover off the double sided tape and stick in the arms. Make sure everything is square. The motors should be 300mm apart. Plug in the ESC. Solder all the wires together, including LC filter, and buzzer/lost model finder (I have mine on the side). Leave space in the middle for the FC. Make holes in the side where the power (for battery and video) cable go.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step14.JPG

Step 15

Make hatches so you can get to some important parts later. I have hatches for the receiver and FC.
Tip: Have the FC hatch large enough so you can change the servo wires.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step15.JPG

Step 16

Add battery strap. I did a quick dry fit of the rest of the gear and balanced it out. Then I made holes for the strap. Also add the strap for the gopro. (I was so excited to be close to the end, I forgot)

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step16.JPG

Step 17

Put double-sided tape onto of the arms. Do NOT stick down. Runs tests for motor direction and make sure you have the esc plugged into the correct ports on the flight control. You don't want to take off and find out that your motor 1 is plugged into port 4 as it will flip your quad and break your best props. :D

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step17.JPG

Step 18

Once you are SURE everything is working stick the top down. Make sure you stick it down while it is on a flat surface or you will add a twist to the frame.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step19.JPG

Step 19

Add some double-sided tape to the back of the quad. Cut out a piece 7 flutes high and the same length as the base. Stick it down.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step20a.JPG

Step 20

This doesn't have to be done (I had them spare from my wing build). Add 2x 3mm glassfiber rods in the front flutes. I have mine on the outer edge.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step20b.JPG

Step 21

Get the covering and stick along the center.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step21.JPG

Step 22

cover the bottom of the quad and the top. I did the bottom first incase I made a mistake later. It meant I only have to take off the top cover to get inside.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step22.JPG
http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step23.JPG

Step 23

Put props on and go test it. If it works mount your FPV gear and go mad.

Hoverfly Pro 4.x black board test flight on Dji flame wheel hexacopter frame with GoPro HD Hero #1

I built this hexacopter for a new hoverfly sport board I was setting up, I found that the sport would not fly after the setup, so I was not sure if it was the new components causing the issues on the copter.

I had a hoverfy pro on my large quadcopter and decided to pull the board and set it up hex X then take the dji frame and new componets for a test flight.
Notes -
I checked the weather channel and the wind speed was about 13 to 15 mph that day, so the copter flu a little rough.
The Hobby Fans 5200 mah lipo battery flu a total of 10 minuets w/ a 12.6 charge from time of lift off to battery alarm went off.

I've wanting to build a carbon fiber frame from some time now and I came across carbon fiber parts on HobbyKing's site. I came up with a new design in hopes of shaving some weight off and spent 18 hours putting it all together. It's 6lbs now compared to my first Hexacopter at 7 1/2lbs. Next is a camera gimbal for my hero 3 and maybe switching over to 6s Lipo batters.

Here's an indoor test flight of my quad. The frame is the Hobbyking X666 Glass Fiber Quadcopter Frame. Flight controller is the Hobbyking KK2.0 Multi-rotor LCD Flight Control Board with auto-level turned on, running firmware 1.5. Overall I'm very impressed with this setup for my first quad build.. There's plenty of power, and the KK 2.0 with auto-level makes for a very stable flight. I had to keep putting it on the ground because I didn't want to hit any furniture. :) Will get an outdoor video soon, whenever it stops snowing. A few notes/recommendations if you build one... Buy a ton of extra props - you'll need them. If you have the extra cash, buy 2nd frame kit.. The X666 comes with an extra aluminum arm but no extra fiberglass components. The fiberglass is going to crack first and you don't want to have to wait for HK's shipping until you get back in the air. Here's a complete parts list: X666 (Frame) www.hobbyking.com 8x4(R) (x2 ea - Props) www.hobbyking.com KK 2.0 (Flight Controller) www.hobbyking.com 2200mAh 3S Lipo (Battery) www.hobbyking.com NTM 26-28A (x4 - Motors) NTM Accessory Pack (x4 - Motor Mounts) www.hobbyking.com 30A BEC ESC (x4 - Speed Controller) www.hobbyking.com HK Power Distribution Board www.hobbyking.com Servo Connector Wires (www.hobbyking.com Bullet Connectors (www.hobbyking.com Turnigy 9X (no module version) www.hobbyking.com FrSky 2.4 Ghz (Tx module + Rx) www.hobbyking.com






I have just reconfigured my quadcopter with new motors and ESC's.
Almost 100A at full throttle, with a totalt weight of just under 1kg :)
The KK-board needs some more adjustments, but it flies quite well considering its compact frame and overpowered components...

Quad setup:
* KK X-config v4.7
* D2826-6 2200kv Motors
* 30A Plush ESC's
* 8x4 GWS Propellers
* Zippy 2200mAh 45C(55) 3S
* Total weight 945g (including battery)



In this tutorial, I cover everything needed in order to build a tricopter from scratch starting with the very basics such as some important materials you will need and how you should cut your wires.

Battle H Virus Tutorial Introduction

I love quads that you can fly and that don't break when you land heavy like I do. While I was waiting for the Honey Badger (http://fpvlab.com/forums/showthread.php?11777-Honey-Badger-is-ready-for-takeoff!) to arrive on my doorstep over Christmas, being a DIY'er, I put together this little quad.

This frame is combination of Fleshpilot's H-Virus and Helliyea's Battle quad. Combining these two ideas I have come up with a quad that doesn't break all too easy, and yes I have tried. This is a 400 sized quad that can carry a gopro without the props in view. Another bonus is that most of the electronics are hidden within the quad. This prevents water, dirt and impact damage. It runs on 8 inch props but the same principles can be used to increase the size for different uses/props. I also made this much bigger (550 size) in testing and it worked well. It is completely symmetrical so it is pretty easy to tune.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/finished.JPG

The great thing about this quad is that getting the vibrations out isn't too hard. Here in this maiden I have chipped props from an earlier crash test and the picture looks pretty impressive. With new props and more effort into mounting the gopro it should become vibration free.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D95ynwYP21M&list=UUBVwe8Lns9d3NfPQSw9NXtw&index=1

So clean your workbench and get ready for a very simple, cheap build.

Building Instructions

Step 1
Cut each 20mm PVC tube to 340mm in length.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step1.JPG

Step 2
Cut the coroplast length wise. The width is 64 flutes or ~ 190mm. Make sure you use a steel ruler and a very sharp knife.

Step 3
Cut the height/length to 365mm.
http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step2.JPG

Step 4
Count 12 flutes in and carefully cut the first layer. Cut the 13th, 20th and 45th flute.
Tip: Score tween the flute with blade/ruler. Then cut through the layer.
Tip: Cut the side closest to the side of a beam (the deck). This gives more space for the tape and arm to fit later.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step4a.JPG
http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step4b.JPG
http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step4c.JPG

Step 5

Cut the top plate and the sides to 325mm. The top plate is two parts of 12 flutes. You will be left with the plate where the gopro will mount onto.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step5.JPG

Step 6

Cut the sides at 25mm and 305mm. This means the back has a 25mm space and the front a 20mm space. Make this as square as possible.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step6a.JPG
http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step6b.JPG

Step 7
Mark the center of the bottom plate and arms.
http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step7.JPG

Step 8
Add holes for the motors. The motor is 150mm from the center of the arm.
Tip: Mark the center and then use the motor mount to line up the holes perfectly. So the first drill point will be 142/140.5mm.
Tip: Put the holes in the middle of the tube. Offsetting it can lead to problems screwing them in later.
Tip: If you have 16mm/19mm style motors then have one side with 16mm holes while the other 19mm holes.
Tip: Drill holes right through as it will help with mounting the motors later.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step8.JPG

Step 9
Mount motors for direction of the feed. I forgot to do this so my wire fold forward not back. Measure out 16AWG wire and solder onto the motors. Don't add gold connectors until later. This doesn't have to be done but it does help with next step.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step9.JPG

Step 10
Drill a hole in the middle of the arms. ~ 20mm x 12mm.
Tip: Put on motors and screw them in. then feed wire through.
Tip: Remember to cut the motor shaft if it touches the wires (picture not done).

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step10c.JPG
http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step10d.JPG


Step 11

Add extras to the arms such as LED lights. I have each run starting at 45mm from the center of the arm. 2 x 3mm holes are drilled for the wire.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step10e.JPG


Step 12

Put down double-sided mounting tape on the bottom plate. Leave the cover on. Trim the inside of the flutes where the arms mounts. This helps fitting it all in. Dry fit the arms. Don't stick them down yet.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step12a.JPG
http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step12b.JPG

Step 13

Lay out everything in the quad. Dry fit everything. Once happy stick down the esc, receiver and LC filter (velcro or DD tape). Add on the gold connectors.
Tip: The front esc are push to one side (right). This allows a strap for the gopro later. The go pro needs the lens in the middle for no prop in view.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step13.JPG

Step 14

Take the cover off the double sided tape and stick in the arms. Make sure everything is square. The motors should be 300mm apart. Plug in the ESC. Solder all the wires together, including LC filter, and buzzer/lost model finder (I have mine on the side). Leave space in the middle for the FC. Make holes in the side where the power (for battery and video) cable go.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step14.JPG

Step 15

Make hatches so you can get to some important parts later. I have hatches for the receiver and FC.
Tip: Have the FC hatch large enough so you can change the servo wires.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step15.JPG

Step 16

Add battery strap. I did a quick dry fit of the rest of the gear and balanced it out. Then I made holes for the strap. Also add the strap for the gopro. (I was so excited to be close to the end, I forgot)

Step 17

Put double-sided tape onto of the arms. Do NOT stick down. Runs tests for motor direction and make sure you have the esc plugged into the correct ports on the flight control. You don't want to take off and find out that your motor 1 is plugged into port 4 as it will flip your quad and break your best props. :D

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step17.JPG

Step 18

Once you are SURE everything is working stick the top down. Make sure you stick it down while it is on a flat surface or you will add a twist to the frame.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step19.JPG

Step 19

Add some double-sided tape to the back of the quad. Cut out a piece 7 flutes high and the same length as the base. Stick it down.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step20a.JPG

Step 20

This doesn't have to be done (I had them spare from my wing build). Add 2x 3mm glassfiber rods in the front flutes. I have mine on the outer edge.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step20b.JPG

Step 21

Get the covering and stick along the center.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step21.JPG

Step 22

cover the bottom of the quad and the top. I did the bottom first incase I made a mistake later. It meant I only have to take off the top cover to get inside.

Step 23

Put props on and go test it. If it works mount your FPV gear and go mad.

Battle H Virus Tutorial Introduction

I love quads that you can fly and that don't break when you land heavy like I do. While I was waiting for the Honey Badger (http://fpvlab.com/forums/showthread.php?11777-Honey-Badger-is-ready-for-takeoff!) to arrive on my doorstep over Christmas, being a DIY'er, I put together this little quad.

This frame is combination of Fleshpilot's H-Virus and Helliyea's Battle quad. Combining these two ideas I have come up with a quad that doesn't break all too easy, and yes I have tried. This is a 400 sized quad that can carry a gopro without the props in view. Another bonus is that most of the electronics are hidden within the quad. This prevents water, dirt and impact damage. It runs on 8 inch props but the same principles can be used to increase the size for different uses/props. I also made this much bigger (550 size) in testing and it worked well. It is completely symmetrical so it is pretty easy to tune.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/finished.JPG

The great thing about this quad is that getting the vibrations out isn't too hard. Here in this maiden I have chipped props from an earlier crash test and the picture looks pretty impressive. With new props and more effort into mounting the gopro it should become vibration free.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D95ynwYP21M&list=UUBVwe8Lns9d3NfPQSw9NXtw&index=1

So clean your workbench and get ready for a very simple, cheap build.

Building Instructions

Step 1
Cut each 20mm PVC tube to 340mm in length.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step1.JPG

Step 2
Cut the coroplast length wise. The width is 64 flutes or ~ 190mm. Make sure you use a steel ruler and a very sharp knife.

Step 3
Cut the height/length to 365mm.
http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step2.JPG

Step 4
Count 12 flutes in and carefully cut the first layer. Cut the 13th, 20th and 45th flute.
Tip: Score tween the flute with blade/ruler. Then cut through the layer.
Tip: Cut the side closest to the side of a beam (the deck). This gives more space for the tape and arm to fit later.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step4a.JPG
http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step4b.JPG
http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step4c.JPG

Step 5

Cut the top plate and the sides to 325mm. The top plate is two parts of 12 flutes. You will be left with the plate where the gopro will mount onto.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step5.JPG

Step 6

Cut the sides at 25mm and 305mm. This means the back has a 25mm space and the front a 20mm space. Make this as square as possible.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step6a.JPG
http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step6b.JPG

Step 7
Mark the center of the bottom plate and arms.
http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step7.JPG

Step 8
Add holes for the motors. The motor is 150mm from the center of the arm.
Tip: Mark the center and then use the motor mount to line up the holes perfectly. So the first drill point will be 142/140.5mm.
Tip: Put the holes in the middle of the tube. Offsetting it can lead to problems screwing them in later.
Tip: If you have 16mm/19mm style motors then have one side with 16mm holes while the other 19mm holes.
Tip: Drill holes right through as it will help with mounting the motors later.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step8.JPG

Step 9
Mount motors for direction of the feed. I forgot to do this so my wire fold forward not back. Measure out 16AWG wire and solder onto the motors. Don't add gold connectors until later. This doesn't have to be done but it does help with next step.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step9.JPG

Step 10
Drill a hole in the middle of the arms. ~ 20mm x 12mm.
Tip: Put on motors and screw them in. then feed wire through.
Tip: Remember to cut the motor shaft if it touches the wires (picture not done).

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step10c.JPG
http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step10d.JPG


Step 11

Add extras to the arms such as LED lights. I have each run starting at 45mm from the center of the arm. 2 x 3mm holes are drilled for the wire.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step10e.JPG


Step 12

Put down double-sided mounting tape on the bottom plate. Leave the cover on. Trim the inside of the flutes where the arms mounts. This helps fitting it all in. Dry fit the arms. Don't stick them down yet.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step11.JPG
http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step12a.JPG
http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step12b.JPG

Step 13

Lay out everything in the quad. Dry fit everything. Once happy stick down the esc, receiver and LC filter (velcro or DD tape). Add on the gold connectors.
Tip: The front esc are push to one side (right). This allows a strap for the gopro later. The go pro needs the lens in the middle for no prop in view.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step13.JPG

Step 14

Take the cover off the double sided tape and stick in the arms. Make sure everything is square. The motors should be 300mm apart. Plug in the ESC. Solder all the wires together, including LC filter, and buzzer/lost model finder (I have mine on the side). Leave space in the middle for the FC. Make holes in the side where the power (for battery and video) cable go.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step14.JPG

Step 15

Make hatches so you can get to some important parts later. I have hatches for the receiver and FC.
Tip: Have the FC hatch large enough so you can change the servo wires.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step15.JPG

Step 16

Add battery strap. I did a quick dry fit of the rest of the gear and balanced it out. Then I made holes for the strap. Also add the strap for the gopro. (I was so excited to be close to the end, I forgot)

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step16.JPG

Step 17

Put double-sided tape onto of the arms. Do NOT stick down. Runs tests for motor direction and make sure you have the esc plugged into the correct ports on the flight control. You don't want to take off and find out that your motor 1 is plugged into port 4 as it will flip your quad and break your best props. :D

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step17.JPG

Step 18

Once you are SURE everything is working stick the top down. Make sure you stick it down while it is on a flat surface or you will add a twist to the frame.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step19.JPG

Step 19

Add some double-sided tape to the back of the quad. Cut out a piece 7 flutes high and the same length as the base. Stick it down.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step20a.JPG

Step 20

This doesn't have to be done (I had them spare from my wing build). Add 2x 3mm glassfiber rods in the front flutes. I have mine on the outer edge.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step20b.JPG

Step 21

Get the covering and stick along the center.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step21.JPG

Step 22

cover the bottom of the quad and the top. I did the bottom first incase I made a mistake later. It meant I only have to take off the top cover to get inside.

http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step22.JPG
http://www.thenutworks.com/BattleHVirus/Pictures/step23.JPG

Step 23

Put props on and go test it. If it works mount your FPV gear and go mad.

2x450 Lg for the motor mounts (400 Lg if you use the PLA motor mounts)
2x405 Lg for the vertical body parts
flight controller (i use the DJI Naza, expensive but excellent)
receiver - Number of channels depends on your choice of flight controller
transmittor - choice is endless
Lipo battery pack - i use a 3 cell 5000mah (slightly too big and heavy, but it works.

very much *work in progress*

Good luck, happy building.

Disregard this hobbyking 50A ESC's setup on this video , i had issues with the HK ESC's because i didn't realized that this ESC's were design for HELI use only , this HELI ESC's they have " soft start up " and they can't be used on quadcopters , make sure that you purchase AIRPLANE version ESC's ONLY for quadcopters projects so you won't make the same mistake that i did , i replace the HK HELI ESC's with 4X generic 30A AIRPLANE ESC's from an EBAY U.S.A. seller for 4 X $10.50 = $42.00 www.ebay.com but by purchasing this 30A ESC's i had to give up the possibility of flying on 4s " 14.8v " lipo's since this ESC's can only handle 3s " 11.1v ".

FPV BANDIT

This quad is perfect for FPV! It flies very stable so it's also capable for some aerial photography (except for the fact that it can only carry a gopro and not something like a Sony NEX-5). At the end of the video there's also some flight footage. Hope you guys like it!

Here's an indoor test flight of my quad. The frame is the Hobbyking X666 Glass Fiber Quadcopter Frame. Flight controller is the Hobbyking KK2.0 Multi-rotor LCD Flight Control Board with auto-level turned on, running firmware 1.5. Overall I'm very impressed with this setup for my first quad build.. There's plenty of power, and the KK 2.0 with auto-level makes for a very stable flight. I had to keep putting it on the ground because I didn't want to hit any furniture. :) Will get an outdoor video soon, whenever it stops snowing. A few notes/recommendations if you build one... Buy a ton of extra props - you'll need them. If you have the extra cash, buy 2nd frame kit.. The X666 comes with an extra aluminum arm but no extra fiberglass components. The fiberglass is going to crack first and you don't want to have to wait for HK's shipping until you get back in the air.

Keep in mind that there are many ways out to set up this thing.

Excellent for its style. Use this list to setup. **6-pcs of "Turnigy D2836/8 1100KV " or "Turnigy2836 1200kv" **6-pcs of "Turnigy Multistar 30 Amp ESC" or "Turnigy Multistar 45 Amp ESC" **6-pcs of "8x4" or "9x5" standard and counter rotating propellers **1-pcs of "i86 Multi-Rotor Control Board" **1-pcs of "Octocopter Power Distribution Board" **1-pcs of "5000mah 3S1P" or "5000mAh 4S1P" **6-pcs of "10CM Male to Male Servo Lead" **6CH TX/RX system


This a well put together package, very sturdy. I used the DT 750 motors, 10x4.5 props and Turnigy plush 25amp escs, I am flying it with 2 turnigy 2200mah 3s 25c packs in parallel and its a super stable machine in the air my flight controller is a Naza from DJI. Or a controller of your choosing.All in all a good package.

Mega Hexacopter LIFTER

This is a short intro on the Heavy Lift Conversion Kit from AerialMediaPros.com CNC'd and anodized our own Aluminum Motor plates. These are ready to mount your Avroto or AXI 2814 motors. They extend the length of the arm, allowing you to run a 11-12" Prop. With this added power and prop combo, you can now safely fly a decent sized Camera Gimbal and DSLR camera. The Copter shown is a F550 NAZA ARF, Built with The AMP Conversion Set, AXI 2814/22 motors, Droidworx Exstended Landing Gear, Photohigher AV130 Gimbal, FPV 520 Cam, and 1.3 Ghz Video TX. The video was a little rough due to the Cheap, Unbalanced Slow Fly Props. I am sure video will be much smoother and clear once the Xoar props arrive. Weight Of F550 Converted with AXI motors, Gimbal, Landing gear, RTF without lipo = 2404 grams Weight RTF With 8000 mAh Lipo, Landing gear, AV130, and Canon T2i= 4042 grams With this RTF set up, and 11X3,8 Props, I was getting right at 5min flight time flying the Canon T2I (766 grams). Exspect closer to 10 min with a GoPro or lighter camera. In the stock configuration, with the larger motors, 11x3.8 props, and conversion kit (No landing gear, camera, or gimbal) I was getting 15.36min flight time using a 4S 6000mAh lipo.

Mega Hexacopter LIFTER

This is a short intro on the Heavy Lift Conversion Kit from AerialMediaPros.com CNC'd and anodized our own Aluminum Motor plates. These are ready to mount your Avroto or AXI 2814 motors. They extend the length of the arm, allowing you to run a 11-12" Prop. With this added power and prop combo, you can now safely fly a decent sized Camera Gimbal and DSLR camera. The Copter shown is a F550 NAZA ARF, Built with The AMP Conversion Set, AXI 2814/22 motors, Droidworx Exstended Landing Gear, Photohigher AV130 Gimbal, FPV 520 Cam, and 1.3 Ghz Video TX.

FPV


After a few requests I have put together the basics of a quadcopter that will give you the scope and spec to upgrade and modify on the cheap.

With these parts you can get up in the air with a flying weight of about 1Kg and then you can add (maximum) another 500g/1KG payload for camera's/FPV gear etc. The added bonus of this list is that it uses generic parts that if broken it can be brought at any good RC shop/ebay at a fraction of the cost of others.

This is the basics, I would research each part of you build just to make sure its right for your needs. I like tinkering so the frame was perfect for me but there are a huge list you can get.

You will need things like velcro straps and duct tape for holding batteries and balencing props and the greatest tool Zip Ties etc and some batteries for the transmitter, the main lipo's will charge from a car battery or a home power supply (max 5A).

Maybe call it a JABcopter lol

Nice and clean construction. I believe that they are the perfect match for the scratch built frame that I used them with. It is a Hexacopter Y6 configuration, and being a test platform it was not light "at all"... These motors combined with the HobbyKing SS Series 18-20 Card Programmable ESC's was phenomenal! I am now moving on to my next build and these will be used in my new Quadcopter also! For a video, look up the words "moisdude hexacopter teaser" in YouTube ok.

Foam Board Delta Build:

There are many versions of the beloved Delta flying wing. This particular model is made from a single piece of Dollar Tree foamboard, pre-covered with packing tape, and assembled with hot glue and two-sided foam tape. Its mission is to go very fast with a medium-sized powerplant and 3-cell battery pack. It is easy to build, with only two straight wing cuts, two hinge cuts, and two score-fold-glue joints for the vertical stabilizers. The scale and style factor is pretty humble in order to keep the weight down and the build simple, but it can be made to look relatively cool enough with some nice colored packing tape. Wingspan 21", length 19", AUW 500-650g, speed 60-75mph. I have used 1100kV and 1500kV 70g, 330 watt +/- motors with 8x6 APC props and 3-cell 2200mAh battery packs and gotten very respectable performance. A 2200kV with 6x4 and a 1300mAh pack was 400g and pretty quick as well. One could use a higher kV rating and/or cell count for faster speeds. My flying park is pretty tight and surrounded by $$property and vehicles so I keep it tame. A properly balanced tractor prop is very quiet, not like many pusher flying wings. 64mm EDF works very well too, mounted on top, with a paper cup thrust tube. These can be very fast and nimble with a roll rate over 1000 degrees per second, so I would recommend having at least intermediate skills and low rates to start. Launch 1/2 throttle at 30 degree up-angle and trim while at altitude. The EDF does well with landing gear (nose wheel ...

This page describes the set up of a Basic QuadCopter and is intended to give you a foundation on the practice of building a simple and cost effective frame. There will be two types of Basic QuadCopter. One with short arms finishing just past the motor mounts and one with longer arms to protect the props.


Landing gear:

HK450 landing gear works great, but any 450 size helicopter landing skid with mounting holes in the center should work fine.
You will need to buy three parts to build the landing skids.

Optional Modded Parts:

Landing skid arms - http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=11563
Landing skid pipe - http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=11501
Landing skid nuts - http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=11502

Arms:
You will need Y-3,4Quad,6Hexacopter8Octocopterarms, but you should get some spares if you want. Crashings allways nearby.

Short Armed:

The arms are approx 8.5 mm longer than the furthest motor mount hole
Drill the 265 mm arms in the following way (from center to end of arm).
5mm (3mm), 15mm (3mm), 35.5mm (3mm), 46mm (3mm), 223.5mm (3mm), 240mm (4.5mm), 256.5mm (3mm).
The 4.5mm hole is for the motor shaft, the rest is for the center plates and the motor mount.

Long Armed:

The arms are approx 20mm + longer than the extended propellers so when (not IF) you crash, the arms will save the props.
Drill the 300mm arms in the following way (from center to end of arm).
5mm (3mm), 15mm (3mm), 35.5mm (3mm), 46mm (3mm), 223.5mm (3mm), 240mm (4.5mm), 256.5mm (3mm).
The 4.5mm hole is for the motor shaft, the rest is for the center plates and the motor mount.
Make your arms and buy more aluminum than you need as you will probably need to replace the arms at some point.

Nice and clean construction. I believe that they are the perfect match for the scratch built frame that I used them with. It is a Hexacopter Y6 configuration, and being a test platform it was not light "at all"... These motors combined with the HobbyKing SS Series 18-20 Card Programmable ESC's was phenomenal! I am now moving on to my next build and these will be used in my new Quadcopter also! For a video, look up the words "moisdude hexacopter teaser" in YouTube ok. OH: by the way, I also bought the 5.4g 200mw transmitter receiver set for doing FPV on my new Quad... :-) Thank you HobbyKing

This is part 3 of the Video overview of the HobbyKing SK450 Quadcopter. Includes testing and tuning along with first flights. At the end of the video I share some quick final thoughts on the SK450 Quadcopter.

The main frame is high quality glass fiber while the arms are constructed from ultra durable polyamide nylon. This quad not only looks great, its very well thought out as well. Assembly is a breeze with pre-threaded brass sleeves for all of the frame bolts, so no lock-nuts are required. It utilizes one size of bolt for the entire build, making the hardware very easy to keep in order and only requiring one size of hex wrench to assemble. The SK450 also has an orientation feature which is quite clever. It includes a yellow foam ball which you install on a carbon rod that mounts between the frame arms. This not only acts as a bumper to prevent running into obstacles, it also makes for a great orientation aid to keep track of the front of the quad while flying. We offer a full line of multi-rotor electronics such as multi-rotor control board, ESC & motors. It has never been easier or ...

DJI F550 HEAVY LIFT CONVERSION KIT "AVAILABLE NOW FOR F550/F450"
Published onApr 30, 2012byAerialMediaPros11,911 views

This is a short intro on the Heavy Lift Conversion Kit from AerialMediaPros.com
We have CNC'd and anodized our own Aluminum Motor plates. These are ready to mount your Avroto or AXI 2814 motors. They extend the length of the arm, allowing you to run a 11-12" Prop. With this added power and prop combo, you can now safely fly a decent sized Camera Gimbal and DSLR camera.

The Copter shown is a F550 NAZA ARF, Built with The AMP Conversion Set, AXI 2814/22 motors, Droidworx Exstended Landing Gear, Photohigher AV130 Gimbal, FPV 520 Cam, and 1.3 Ghz Video TX. The video was a little rough due to the Cheap, Unbalanced Slow Fly Props. I am sure video will be much smoother and clear once the Xoar props arrive.

Weight Of F550 Converted with AXI motors, Gimbal, Landing gear, RTF without lipo = 2404 grams

Weight RTF With 8000 mAh Lipo, Landing gear, AV130, and Canon T2I = 4042 grams
With this RTF set up, and 11X3,8 Props, I was getting right at 5min flight time flying the Canon T2I (766 grams). Exspect closer to 10 min with a GoPro or lighter camera. I will be trying out diffrent prop and lipo configurations to get longer flight times.

In the stock configuration, with the larger motors, 11x3.8 props, and conversion kit (No landing gear, camera, or gimbal) I was getting 15.36min flight time using a 4S 6000mAh lipo.


TO ORDER the CONVERSION KIT
visit AerialMediaPros.com, and visit the store. We have a package including the mounts and (6) Avroto motors available. Shipping begins on May 4.

Feel free to email aerialmediapros@yahoo.com or call 888-557-6791 with any questions.

MT 3506 650kv brushless motor
Today I found a very interesting multicopter motor, the T-motor 3506 650 kv from Tiger Motors. This multicopter motor is from their MT series, which is specially developed for multirotors. The other two multicopter motors are MT 2214 and MT 2216.

I have previously written shortly about Tiger Motors because the motor’s bell implies it’s from the same manufacturer as the Avroto motors when I wrote about the Avroto 2814.


MT 3506's long cables makes it easier to have the cables inside the arms of the multicopter frame
For my large heavy lift Y6 multicopter I use the RC-timer BC 3536 750 kv, but if I one day will build a slightly smaller multicopter I will definitly take a closer look at those MT 3506 multicopter motors.

Quadcopter V2 - x525 v3 Frame - iPhone 4 HD video
Published onJan 7, 2012byRobert Canavan5,764 views

HobbyKing are now stocking the x525 -http://hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewitem.asp?idproduct=22800&aff=404649

My second version of my HobbyKing Quadcopter.

The electrics are the same, but added a brand new solid frame (x525 v3 foldable frame). This has made a huge difference in the stability. I did not think I would get it so stable. I specifically like the spring loaded feet on the x525 v3 frame. It is really a simple but solid quadcopter frame - I love it.

The video was recorded using a iPhone 4 (protected in a Otterbox Defender Case). It was pretty windy and I haven't yet built a anti vibration mount for the camera yet. The onboard videos were literally the iPhone taped onto the frame (hence the vibrations).

A few notes:
1 -- I'm not known for my videoing skills
2 - I'm not known for my flying
3 - I'm not known for my building skills! :)

Enough said.... Be nice :)

Kit List - All standard no mods.

Buy any of the following and you will have a good, solid, advanced quadcopter. Why spend £300 or so on a AR Drone when you can buy a proper quadcopter with a decide payload capacity?

With a 3 cell 2200 mAh battery and iPhone attached, I can achieve at least 12 minutes of normal flight. I sometimes strap two 3 cell 2200 mAh battery together and run in parallel to achieve a flight in excess of 25 minutes (normal flight).

This DJI F550 Flame Wheel GPS Naza Ready To Fly Kit is supplied with a Futaba T8J radio control system with the S-Bus enabled full range R2008SB receiver, a powerful 50W LiPo charger and 5200 mAh LiPo battery. This is all you need to fly in one pre-build RTF kit.


This is one of the most popular and easiest to fly HexaCopter with the class leading GPS Naza Flight Controller from DJI Innovations, it can be used for aerial photography, entertainment, FPV (First Person View) flights and other aero modelling activities from the box!.


The F550 Flame Wheel HexaCopter:

The DJI F550 Flame Wheel frames are built from very strong materials, the arms are made from the ultra strong PA66+30GF material which provides better resistance to damage on hard landings, while the main frame plates use a high strength compound PCB material, which makes wiring of the ESC's and the LiPo battery more tidy and safe on the lower of the two frame plates which is also the power distribution board.

The overall frame design of the F550 Flame Wheel frame provides enough space when assembled to fit the GPS Naza Flight Control systems between the top and bottom plates of the Flame Wheel while still allowing enough additional space to add a video transmitter or other systems to the frame for FPV use. The arms supplied in the kit are 2 different colours, 2 red and 2 white to allow for improved visual orientation in flight.

The GPS Naza Flight Controller:$$$$$$$$$$$$

The DJI GPS Naza is the outstanding flight controller from DJI Innovations. The NAZA GPS has RTH (Return-To-Home); IOC (Intelligent Orientation Control) and Low Battery warning (please see the full features and functions list on the GPS NAZA product page for additional information on the features and functions). The DJI GPS Naza Flight Controller is an all-in-one lightweight multi-axis control platform specially designed for multi rotor QuadCopters with the aero model hobbyists in mind. The module integrates all of the controller, gyroscope, accelerometer and a barometer for altitude and position hold all in the one small box located at the centre of the F550 Flame Wheel. There is a two-level low voltage protection system built in to the Naza system; the first is a low voltage LED alarm while the second is an automatic landing, saving expensive repair bills!

The DJI GPS Naza flight controller is different from the DJI Wookong M WKM which is designed for heavy payloads and aerial photography, however the outstanding flight stability and manoeuvrability of the DJI GPS Naza Flight Controller is inherited from the WKM's outstanding flight control algorithms, this means the hobbyists can have access to the very best flight experience and the advanced control algorithm seen on the DJI Wookong M WKM for a much lower price.

The Futaba T8J RC System:

The supplied Futaba T8J with S-Bus enabled full range R2008SB receiver is an easy to use 8 channel RC Radio system. The radio system comes fully programmed ready for flight, with all settings pre-programmed for Home Lock, Corse Lock, GPS Position Hold, Altitude Hold and Return To Home Fail Safe setting in the event of the QuadCopter going beyond the range of the radio, the only setting you will need to adjust is the compass calibration, this has to be carried out at a location close to the place which the QuadCopter will be flown, however it takes about 30 seconds to do and is little more than flicking a switch 10 times to enter the compass calibration mode.

The Futaba T8J is the perfect radio to use with the DJI GPS Naza Flight Controller as it takes full advantage of the Futaba S-Bus system, this means that there is a very tidy installation over and above other non S-Bus systems like the Spektrum DX8 using an AR8000 receiver, this means you only have one wire for all communications with the Naza Flight Controller from the 8J and R2008GS receiver. The Futaba J8 has two, three position switches which allows for all features of the GPS Naza to be used, including the fail safe on loss of signal to Return To Home and land automatically.

The Battery Charger:

The SKY RC IMAX E6650 50W LiPo Battery Charger is the high performance charger supplied in the kit has a large, clear backlit LCD for easy set-up and use and is very compact, which means that it can be used at either the flight field from a 10 to 18V DC supply (cable included) or in the home with the supplied mains AC cable, AC input is between 100 - 240V. This charger is not just a LiPo charger it has the additional features of a discharger and balancer and can deliver up to 6.0 Amps of charging power for Li-Po, Li-Fe, Ni-Cd, Ni-MH, Li-Ion and Lead Acid batteries. The charger is supplied with the matching balance ports for the LiPo battery in this kit, there is a port for an optional temperature sensor to monitor the battery while on charge.

The Lipo Battery:

The Desire V8 3 Cell 3S 5200 mAh 35C Li-Po battery delivers great performance for every day flights & most sports applications and is matched to the DJI F550 Flame Wheel DJI GPS Naza Ready To Fly Kit. The main power leads fitted to the LiPo pack are matched to the maximum discharge current that the LiPo is capable of. The main battery leads come fitted with the “Deans” style connector to match the F550 Flame Wheel and battery charger power connectors.


The DJI F550 Flame Wheel GPS Naza Ready To Fly kit includes these parts:
6 x 30 Amp Opto ESC's.
6 x 915 Kv 2212 Motors.
6 x 10" Propellers.
1 x Futaba J8 RC System
1 x IMAX Lipo Battery Charger
1 x Naza Flight Controller
1 x Naza GPS Upgrade
1 x Lipo Battery 3S 5200 mAh

Foam Board Delta Build:

There are many versions of the beloved Delta flying wing. This particular model is made from a single piece of Dollar Tree foamboard, pre-covered with packing tape, and assembled with hot glue and two-sided foam tape. Its mission is to go very fast with a medium-sized powerplant and 3-cell battery pack. It is easy to build, with only two straight wing cuts, two hinge cuts, and two score-fold-glue joints for the vertical stabilizers. The scale and style factor is pretty humble in order to keep the weight down and the build simple, but it can be made to look relatively cool enough with some nice colored packing tape. Wingspan 21",

Keep in mind that there are many ways out to set up this thing.

Excellent for its style. Use this list to setup.

**6-pcs of "Turnigy D2836/8 1100KV " or "Turnigy2836 1200kv" **6-pcs of "Turnigy Multistar 30 Amp ESC" or "Turnigy Multistar 45 Amp ESC" **6-pcs of "8x4" or "9x5" standard and counter rotating propellers **1-pcs of "i86 Multi-Rotor Control Board" **1-pcs of "Octocopter Power Distribution Board" **1-pcs of "5000mah 3S1P" or "5000mAh 4S1P" **6-pcs of "10CM Male to Male Servo Lead" **6CH TX/RX system


This a well put together package, very sturdy. I used the DT 750 motors, 10x4.5 props and Turnigy plush 25amp escs, I am flying it with 2 turnigy 2200mah 3s 25c packs in parallel and its a super stable machine in the air my flight controller is a Naza from DJI. Or a controller of your choosing.All in all a good package.

Mega Hexacopter LIFTER

This is a short intro on the Heavy Lift Conversion Kit


AerialMediaPros.com CNC'd and anodized our own Aluminum Motor plates. These are ready to mount your Avroto or AXI 2814 motors. They extend the length of the arm, allowing you to run a 11-12" Prop. With this added power and prop combo, you can now safely fly a decent sized Camera Gimbal and DSLR camera. The Copter shown is a F550 NAZA ARF, Built with The AMP Conversion Set, AXI 2814/22 motors, Droidworx Exstended Landing Gear, Photohigher AV130 Gimbal, FPV 520 Cam, and 1.3 Ghz Video TX. The video was a little rough due to the Cheap, Unbalanced Slow Fly Props. I am sure video will be much smoother and clear once the Xoar props arrive. Weight Of F550 Converted with AXI motors, Gimbal, Landing gear, RTF without lipo = 2404 grams Weight RTF With 8000 mAh Lipo, Landing gear, AV130, and Canon T2i= 4042 grams With this RTF set up, and 11X3,8 Props, I was getting right at 5min flight time flying the Canon T2I (766 grams). Exspect closer to 10 min with a GoPro or lighter camera. In the stock configuration, with the larger motors, 11x3.8 props, and conversion kit (No landing gear, camera, or gimbal) I was getting 15.36min flight time using a 4S 6000mAh.

New multicopter motor – MT 3506 650kv from Tiger Motors (T-motor)

MT 3506 650kv brushless motor
Today I found a very interesting multicopter motor, the T-motor 3506 650 kv from Tiger Motors. This multicopter motor is from their MT series, which is specially developed for multirotors. The other two multicopter motors are MT 2214 and MT 2216.

I have previously written shortly about Tiger Motors because the motor’s bell implies it’s from the same manufacturer as the Avroto motors when I wrote about the Avroto 2814.


MT 3506's long cables makes it easier to have the cables inside the arms of the multicopter frame
For my large heavy lift Y6 multicopter I use the RC-timer BC 3536 750 kv, but if I one day will build a slightly smaller multicopter I will definitly take a closer look at those MT 3506 multicopter motors.

Self-level is a no-go on the 1.2 firmware, but flasher is on the way with more propellers and arms. Having reception problems with this directional long-range 7db antenna which makes me fear testing it's height range in the city currently.

450mm "dead cat" frame for keeping the rotors out of camera's view. 4000mah batt (too heavy), 10x4.5 slow props for lift, 30amp turnigy plush esc's, Turnigy D2836/11 750KV Outrunners. KK2.0 LCD flight controller. FrSky DJT 8 channel 2.4Ghz Tx, V8FR-II Rx. Good flight time with all the extra junk on it.

In this video I am testing 2 x 28mm outrunner brushless motors for my HK Bixler I. But this test will help anyone intent on purchasing a 28mm size motor within this KV bracket.

In these tests I use a 2400MaH 3cell 30C Lipo, EMP(e) props and a 40A ESC

I test both motors to their documented Max current draw (both 18A) but notably the NTM is rated for 4s lipos (14.8V) so would be capable of more power if I had one but I don't so this test only demonstrates its performance on a 3s lipo - Both motors are capable of 950grams of thrust on a 11.1v lipo for their given max current draw but the NTM has to use a 9x6 to get it (not suitable for the Bixler) I am using the CNC SmallParts motor mount and can only accomodate an 8" prop (normally only a 6" on the standard motor mount)

Please use the links below if you intend to purchase one of these motors based on this video - thanks.

The Hobbyking SK450 is a brilliantly designed 450mm quad frame built from top quality materials. The main frame is high quality glass fiber while the arms are constructed from ultra durable polyamide nylon.

This quad not only looks great, its very well thought out as well. Assembly is a breeze with pre-threaded brass sleeves for all of the frame bolts, so no lock-nuts are required. It utilizes one size of bolt for the entire build, making the hardware very easy to keep in order and only requiring one size of hex wrench to assemble.

The SK450 also has an orientation feature which is quite clever. It includes a yellow foam ball which you install on a carbon rod that mounts between the frame arms. This not only acts as a bumper to prevent running into obstacles, it also makes for a great orientation aid to keep track of the front of the quad while flying.

We offer a full line of multi-rotor electronics such as multi-rotor control board, ESC & motors. It has never been easier or more affordable to get a quad in the air!

Features:
Built from top quality glass fiber and polyamide nylon.
Pre-threaded brass sleeves for all of the frame bolts.
Yellow orientation ball to keep you flying in the right direction.
Easy assembly.

Nice and clean construction. I believe that they are the perfect match for the scratch built frame that I used them with. It is a Hexacopter Y6 configuration, and being a test platform it was not light "at all"... These motors combined with the HobbyKing SS Series 18-20 Card Programmable ESC's was phenomenal! I am now moving on to my next build and these will be used in my new Quadcopter also!

In this video I am testing 2 x 28mm outrunner brushless motors for my HK Bixler I. But this test will help anyone intent on purchasing a 28mm size motor within this KV bracket.

In these tests I use a 2400MaH 3cell 30C Lipo, EMP(e) props and a 40A ESC

I test both motors to their documented Max current draw (both 18A) but notably the NTM is rated for 4s lipos (14.8V) so would be capable of more power if I had one but I don't so this test only demonstrates its performance on a 3s lipo - Both motors are capable of 950grams of thrust on a 11.1v lipo for their given max current draw but the NTM has to use a 9x6 to get it (not suitable for the Bixler) I am using the CNC SmallParts motor mount and can only accomodate an 8" prop (normally only a 6" on the standard motor mount)

Please use the links below if you intend to purchase one of these motors based on this video - thanks.

Here's an indoor test flight of my quad. The frame is the Hobbyking X666 Glass Fiber Quadcopter Frame. Flight controller is the Hobbyking KK2.0 Multi-rotor LCD Flight Control Board with auto-level turned on, running firmware 1.5. Overall I'm very impressed with this setup for my first quad build.. There's plenty of power, and the KK 2.0 with auto-level makes for a very stable flight. I had to keep putting it on the ground because I didn't want to hit any furniture. :) Will get an outdoor video soon, whenever it stops snowing. A few notes/recommendations if you build one... Buy a ton of extra props - you'll need them. If you have the extra cash, buy 2nd frame kit.. The X666 comes with an extra aluminum arm but no extra fiberglass components. The fiberglass is going to crack first and you don't want to have to wait for HK's shipping until you get back in the air.

This DJI F550 Flame Wheel GPS Naza Ready To Fly Kit is supplied with a Futaba T8J radio control system with the S-Bus enabled full range R2008SB receiver, a powerful 50W LiPo charger and 5200 mAh LiPo battery. This is all you need to fly in one pre-build RTF kit.


This is one of the most popular and easiest to fly HexaCopter with the class leading GPS Naza Flight Controller from DJI Innovations, it can be used for aerial photography, entertainment, FPV (First Person View) flights and other aero modelling activities from the box!.


The F550 Flame Wheel HexaCopter:

The DJI F550 Flame Wheel frames are built from very strong materials, the arms are made from the ultra strong PA66+30GF material which provides better resistance to damage on hard landings, while the main frame plates use a high strength compound PCB material, which makes wiring of the ESC's and the LiPo battery more tidy and safe on the lower of the two frame plates which is also the power distribution board.

The overall frame design of the F550 Flame Wheel frame provides enough space when assembled to fit the GPS Naza Flight Control systems between the top and bottom plates of the Flame Wheel while still allowing enough additional space to add a video transmitter or other systems to the frame for FPV use. The arms supplied in the kit are 2 different colours, 2 red and 2 white to allow for improved visual orientation in flight.

The GPS Naza Flight Controller:$$$$$$$$$$$$

The DJI GPS Naza is the outstanding flight controller from DJI Innovations. The NAZA GPS has RTH (Return-To-Home); IOC (Intelligent Orientation Control) and Low Battery warning (please see the full features and functions list on the GPS NAZA product page for additional information on the features and functions). The DJI GPS Naza Flight Controller is an all-in-one lightweight multi-axis control platform specially designed for multi rotor QuadCopters with the aero model hobbyists in mind. The module integrates all of the controller, gyroscope, accelerometer and a barometer for altitude and position hold all in the one small box located at the centre of the F550 Flame Wheel. There is a two-level low voltage protection system built in to the Naza system; the first is a low voltage LED alarm while the second is an automatic landing, saving expensive repair bills!

The DJI GPS Naza flight controller is different from the DJI Wookong M WKM which is designed for heavy payloads and aerial photography, however the outstanding flight stability and manoeuvrability of the DJI GPS Naza Flight Controller is inherited from the WKM's outstanding flight control algorithms, this means the hobbyists can have access to the very best flight experience and the advanced control algorithm seen on the DJI Wookong M WKM for a much lower price.

The Futaba T8J RC System:http://www.futaba-rc.com/systems/futk8100-8j/index.html

The supplied Futaba T8J with S-Bus enabled full range R2008SB receiver is an easy to use 8 channel RC Radio system. The radio system comes fully programmed ready for flight, with all settings pre-programmed for Home Lock, Corse Lock, GPS Position Hold, Altitude Hold and Return To Home Fail Safe setting in the event of the QuadCopter going beyond the range of the radio, the only setting you will need to adjust is the compass calibration, this has to be carried out at a location close to the place which the QuadCopter will be flown, however it takes about 30 seconds to do and is little more than flicking a switch 10 times to enter the compass calibration mode.

The Futaba T8J is the perfect radio to use with the DJI GPS Naza Flight Controller as it takes full advantage of the Futaba S-Bus system, this means that there is a very tidy installation over and above other non S-Bus systems like the Spektrum DX8 using an AR8000 receiver, this means you only have one wire for all communications with the Naza Flight Controller from the 8J and R2008GS receiver. The Futaba J8 has two, three position switches which allows for all features of the GPS Naza to be used, including the fail safe on loss of signal to Return To Home and land automatically.

The Battery Charger:

The SKY RC IMAX E6650 50W LiPo Battery Charger is the high performance charger supplied in the kit has a large, clear backlit LCD for easy set-up and use and is very compact, which means that it can be used at either the flight field from a 10 to 18V DC supply (cable included) or in the home with the supplied mains AC cable, AC input is between 100 - 240V. This charger is not just a LiPo charger it has the additional features of a discharger and balancer and can deliver up to 6.0 Amps of charging power for Li-Po, Li-Fe, Ni-Cd, Ni-MH, Li-Ion and Lead Acid batteries. The charger is supplied with the matching balance ports for the LiPo battery in this kit, there is a port for an optional temperature sensor to monitor the battery while on charge.

The Lipo Battery:

The Desire V8 3 Cell 3S 5200 mAh 35C Li-Po battery delivers great performance for every day flights & most sports applications and is matched to the DJI F550 Flame Wheel DJI GPS Naza Ready To Fly Kit. The main power leads fitted to the LiPo pack are matched to the maximum discharge current that the LiPo is capable of. The main battery leads come fitted with the “Deans” style connector to match the F550 Flame Wheel and battery charger power connectors.


The F550 Flame Wheel GPS Naza Ready To Fly kit includes these parts:
6 x 30 Amp Opto ESC's.
6 x 915 Kv 2212 Motors.
6 x 10" Propellers.
1 x Futaba J8 RC System
1 x IMAX Lipo Battery Charger

This is my new Hoverthings VC-450 frame with the awesome OpenPilot CopterControl Flight Controller. After many test flights and configuration changes i believe i am nearly done with tuning. This flight was the first with a GoPro on board to see exactly how well it handles it. Its a boring flight but it serves its purpose. I do not see any actual flight vibrations, there is SOME slight wobbles but those hopefully i will be able to tune out. Outside of mounting tilt/roll camera gimbals I believe this is probably as good as this one will get. I am very pleased with this build and anticipate the FPV maiden will happen this week.

With this added power and prop combo, you can now safely fly a decent sized Camera Gimbal and DSLR camera. The Copter shown is a F550 NAZA ARF, Built with The AMP Conversion Set, AXI 2814/22 motors, Droidworx Exstended Landing Gear, Photohigher AV130 Gimbal, FPV 520 Cam, and 1.3 Ghz Video TX. The video was a little rough due to the Cheap, Unbalanced Slow Fly Props. I am sure video will be much smoother and clear once the Xoar props arrive. Weight Of F550 Converted with AXI motors, Gimbal, Landing gear, RTF without lipo = 2404 grams Weight RTF With 8000 mAh Lipo, Landing gear, AV130, and Canon T2i= 4042 grams With this RTF set up, and 11X3,8 Props, I was getting right at 5min flight time flying the Canon T2I (766 grams). Exspect closer to 10 min with a GoPro or lighter camera. In the stock configuration, with the larger motors, 11x3.8 props, and conversion kit (No landing gear, camera, or gimbal) I was getting 15.36min flight time using a 4S 6000mAh.

MT 3506 650kv brushless motor
Today I found a very interesting multicopter motor, the T-motor 3506 650 kv from Tiger Motors. This multicopter motor is from their MT series, which is specially developed for multirotors. The other two multicopter motors are MT 2214 and MT 2216.

I have previously written shortly about Tiger Motors because the motor’s bell implies it’s from the same manufacturer as the Avroto motors when I wrote about the Avroto 2814.


MT 3506's long cables makes it easier to have the cables inside the arms of the multicopter frame
For my large heavy lift Y6 multicopter I use the RC-timer BC 3536 750 kv, but if I one day will build a slightly smaller multicopter I will definitly take a closer look at those MT 3506 multicopter motors.

 The following is a list of the items will be required to get started with radio controlled helicopters:


The Multirotor kit

 When you choose your first helicopter you will have to decide which type of helicopter you wish to buy, one with collective pitch, or one with out collective pitch. If you are starting in radio control for the first time we would recommend a helicopter with collective pitch. You will also find the learning process easier with a collective pitch helicopter. You will only find helicopters in the second hand market without collective pitch, and we strongly recommend that you stay away from them!

 Unlike aircraft where there are specific trainer models geared solely for the first time kit, the differences between helicopters is more subtle with the biggest difference being size and precision. The larger and more precise a machine, the better it will fly. These machines would make great training helicopters but they are usually more expensive with high precision parts, and in the case of a crash they would be costly to repair. They are better suited for the more experienced modeller where accidents happen less often.

 Bare in mind, when learning to fly a helicopter you are going to have a crash or two and parts are going to have to be replaced. Replacing parts on a precision machine could really need you to pay a large amount of money! A good place to start would be a helicopter designed for a .30 size engine, a stable flyer with collective pitch, and one with a good availability of parts.

The Radio
 As mentioned earlier, a proper helicopter radio differs from a standard aircraft radio. There are certain functions that must be mixed electronically and these are found only in radios designed for this purpose. More and more often, one is able to find radio systems that have functions suitable to both aircraft and helicopters. If you think you may be involved in both sides of the hobby, you may want to choose one of these for your system.

 On the other hand what to need to be consider are are the servos and the battery pack when purchasing a helicopter system. It is best to choose servos that have output shafts supported by ball bearings. The pressure and vibration on the servos in a helicopter is much greater than in a aeroplane, bushed servos tend to wear out very quickly and lose their precision which is extremely important in the controlling of a helicopter. Because you will be using a minimum of five servos and a gyro (to be discussed later) in a helicopter, and the higher frequency of control input, it is very necessary to have a larger battery pack than the standard 600 maH pack that comes with most aircraft radios. A battery pack of 1200 maH is a minimum requirement but 1800 to 2000maH is a much better option to consider. Many helicopter radios come packaged with five BB servos and a large battery pack. Also ensure that the radio is on the 35Mhz waveband and not anything else. This frequency band is specially designated to model aircraft in the UK. Please read ' Getting To Know R/C Radio Systems' for more information on the right radio to buy.

Gyroscope
 A gyroscope, or gyro, is an electromechanical device used in a helicopter to help semi-automate the response of the tail rotor. In the case of an R/C helicopterr, the device is fitted electrically between the receiver and the servo that controls the pitch of the tail rotor blades. A sensor measures any change in yaw of the aircraft and will correct the situation by increasing or decreasing the tail rotor pitch to stabilise the movement.

 We would say that a gyro is essential as the beginner will have enough to do with all the other controls without trying to stop the model from spinning around all the time and with gyros available from around £39 it is money well spent. Gyros are made by most radio manufacturers for operation compatible with their systems.

The Engine
 The helicopter engine is similar to a 2-cycle aircraft glow engine except that it has a larger heat sink head for better cooling, and a carburettor with improved midrange adjustment. When purchasing the helicopter engine, the muffler is not included. Usually the muffler comes with the helicopter kit.

 Different motors use different starting methods. Some come with a pull start system for very simple starting. Others use a cone start where an electric starter is used in a similar way as starting an aircraft. Others use an electric starter and a belt for starting. Please read 'Getting To Know R/C Engines'.

Tools
 Because the helicopter is purely a mechanical device, tools for assembly usually include items such as screw drivers, ball drivers, nut drivers, wrenches, pliers, etc. In addition to these there are a couple of speciality tools that come in handy when assembling and setting up the mechanics of your helicopter.

 One tool you may want to assist you in assembly is a set of ball link pliers. The ball link is the most popular linkage piece on a helicopter and virtually all helicopterss use them. The ball link pliers greatly help in the removing and adjusting of these links. A second tool that is extremely useful during set-up is the rotor blade pitch gauge. This device can help you line up your rotor blades so that your pitch is correct. A blade pitch gauge can go along way to helping avoid costly crashes and frustration down the road as so much of your chopper's well being depends on how well it is set up initially and maintained throughout its lifetime.

Foam Board Delta Build:

There are many versions of the beloved Delta flying wing. This particular model is made from a single piece of Dollar Tree foamboard, pre-covered with packing tape, and assembled with hot glue and two-sided foam tape. Its mission is to go very fast with a medium-sized powerplant and 3-cell battery pack. It is easy to build, with only two straight wing cuts, two hinge cuts, and two score-fold-glue joints for the vertical stabilizers. The scale and style factor is pretty humble in order to keep the weight down and the build simple, but it can be made to look relatively cool enough with some nice colored packing tape. Wingspan 21", length 19", AUW 500-650g, speed 60-75mph. I have used 1100kV and 1500kV 70g, 330 watt +/- motors with 8x6 APC props and 3-cell 2200mAh battery packs and gotten very respectable performance. A 2200kV with 6x4 and a 1300mAh pack was 400g and pretty quick as well. One could use a higher kV rating and/or cell count for faster speeds. My flying park is pretty tight and surrounded by $$property and vehicles so I keep it tame. A properly balanced tractor prop is very quiet, not like many pusher flying wings. 64mm EDF works very well too, mounted on top, with a paper cup thrust tube. These can be very fast and nimble with a roll rate over 1000 degrees per second, so I would recommend having at least intermediate skills and low rates to start. Launch 1/2 throttle at 30 degree up-angle and trim while at altitude. The EDF does well with landing gear (nose wheel ...

Bought these, and installed them on my quadcopter w/ 4S and a 11X8.5 APC prop. Plenty of power and torque. Runs pretty quiet, and the amp draw on this setup is 42A and about 650W. Overall a good motor.

Turnigy L2215J-900 Brushless Motor (200w)
the esc's are: HobbyKing Red Brick 25A ESC (I would recommend different speed controlls like the Plush, red bricks tend to glitch once in a while)
10"x6" Propellers
3 cell 2200mah 20-30c lipo

Nice and clean construction. I believe that they are the perfect match for the scratch built frame that I used them with. It is a Hexacopter Y6 configuration, and being a test platform it was not light "at all"... These motors combined with the HobbyKing SS Series 18-20 Card Programmable ESC's was phenomenal! I am now moving on to my next build and these will be used in my new Quadcopter also! For a video, look up the words "moisdude hexacopter teaser" in YouTube ok. OH: by the way, I also bought the 5.4g 200mw transmitter receiver set for doing FPV on my new Quad... :-) Thank you HobbyKing

This page describes the set up of a Basic QuadCopter and is intended to give you a foundation on the practice of building a simple and cost effective frame. There will be two types of Basic QuadCopter. One with short arms finishing just past the motor mounts and one with longer arms to protect the props.


Landing gear:

HK450 landing gear works great, but any 450 size helicopter landing skid with mounting holes in the center should work fine.
You will need to buy three parts to build the landing skids.

Optional Modded Parts:

Landing skid arms - http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=11563
Landing skid pipe - http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=11501
Landing skid nuts - http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=11502

Arms:
You will need Y-3,4Quad,6Hexacopter8Octocopterarms, but you should get some spares if you want. Crashings allways nearby.

Short Armed:

The arms are approx 8.5 mm longer than the furthest motor mount hole
Drill the 265 mm arms in the following way (from center to end of arm).
5mm (3mm), 15mm (3mm), 35.5mm (3mm), 46mm (3mm), 223.5mm (3mm), 240mm (4.5mm), 256.5mm (3mm).
The 4.5mm hole is for the motor shaft, the rest is for the center plates and the motor mount.

Long Armed:

The arms are approx 20mm + longer than the extended propellers so when (not IF) you crash, the arms will save the props.
Drill the 300mm arms in the following way (from center to end of arm).
5mm (3mm), 15mm (3mm), 35.5mm (3mm), 46mm (3mm), 223.5mm (3mm), 240mm (4.5mm), 256.5mm (3mm).
The 4.5mm hole is for the motor shaft, the rest is for the center plates and the motor mount.
Make your arms and buy more aluminum than you need as you will probably need to replace the arms at some point.

Turnigy L2215J-900 Brushless Motor (200w)
the esc's are: HobbyKing Red Brick 25A ESC (I would recommend different speed controlls like the Plush, red bricks tend to glitch once in a while)
10"x6" Propellers
3 cell 2200mah 20-30c lipo

Nice and clean construction. I believe that they are the perfect match for the scratch built frame that I used them with. It is a Hexacopter Y6 configuration, and being a test platform it was not light "at all"... These motors combined with the HobbyKing SS Series 18-20 Card Programmable ESC's was phenomenal! I am now moving on to my next build and these will be used in my new Quadcopter also! For a video, look up the words "moisdude hexacopter teaser" in YouTube ok. OH: by the way, I also bought the 5.4g 200mw transmitter receiver set for doing FPV on my new Quad... :-) Thank you HobbyKing

HobbyKing SK450 Quadcopter. Includes testing and tuning along with first flights. At the end of the video I share some quick final thoughts on the SK450 Quadcopter. SK450 Quadcoter frame kit: www.hobbyking.com SK450 Lower PCB main frame: www.hobbyking.com SK450 Red replacement arms: www.hobbyking.com Turnigy D2836/9 950KV Brushless Motor: www.hobbyking.com Turnigy TY-P1 25Amp HEXFET® Brushless esc: www.hobbyking.com Multi Rotor Accessories: www.hobbyking.com The Hobbyking SK450 is a brilliantly designed 450mm quad frame built from top quality materials. The main frame is high quality glass fiber while the arms are constructed from ultra durable polyamide nylon. This quad not only looks great, its very well thought out as well. Assembly is a breeze with pre-threaded brass sleeves for all of the frame bolts, so no lock-nuts are required. It utilizes one size of bolt for the entire build, making the hardware very easy to keep in order and only requiring one size of hex wrench to assemble. The SK450 also has an orientation feature which is quite clever. It includes a yellow foam ball which you install on a carbon rod that mounts between the frame arms. This not only acts as a bumper to prevent running into obstacles, it also makes for a great orientation aid to keep track of the front of the quad while flying. We offer a full line of multi-rotor electronics such as multi-rotor control board, ESC & motors. It has never been easier or ...

New multicopter motor – MT 3506 650kv from Tiger Motors (T-motor)

MT 3506 650kv brushless motor
Today I found a very interesting multicopter motor, the T-motor 3506 650 kv from Tiger Motors. This multicopter motor is from their MT series, which is specially developed for multirotors. The other two multicopter motors are MT 2214 and MT 2216.

I have previously written shortly about Tiger Motors because the motor’s bell implies it’s from the same manufacturer as the Avroto motors when I wrote about the Avroto 2814.


MT 3506's long cables makes it easier to have the cables inside the arms of the multicopter frame
For my large heavy lift Y6 multicopter I use the RC-timer BC 3536 750 kv, but if I one day will build a slightly smaller multicopter I will definitly take a closer look at those MT 3506 multicopter motors.

Quadcopter V2 - x525 v3 Frame - iPhone 4 HD
HobbyKing are now stocking the x525 -http://hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewitem.asp?idproduct=22800&aff=404649

My second version of my HobbyKing Quadcopter.

The electrics are the same, but added a brand new solid frame (x525 v3 foldable frame). This has made a huge difference in the stability. I did not think I would get it so stable. I specifically like the spring loaded feet on the x525 v3 frame. It is really a simple but solid quadcopter frame - I love it.

The video was recorded using a iPhone 4 (protected in a Otterbox Defender Case). It was pretty windy and I haven't yet built a anti vibration mount for the camera yet. The onboard videos were literally the iPhone taped onto the frame (hence the vibrations).

A few notes:
1 -- I'm not known for my videoing skills
2 - I'm not known for my flying
3 - I'm not known for my building skills! :)

Enough said.... Be nice :)

Kit List - All standard no mods.

Buy any of the following and you will have a good, solid, advanced quadcopter. Why spend £300 or so on a AR Drone when you can buy a proper quadcopter with a decide payload capacity?

With a 3 cell 2200 mAh battery and iPhone attached, I can achieve at least 12 minutes of normal flight. I sometimes strap two 3 cell 2200 mAh battery together and run in parallel to achieve a flight in excess of 25 minutes (normal flight).

Keep in mind that there are many ways out to set up this thing.

Excellent for its style. Use this list to setup. **6-pcs of "Turnigy D2836/8 1100KV " or "Turnigy2836 1200kv" **6-pcs of "Turnigy Multistar 30 Amp ESC" or "Turnigy Multistar 45 Amp ESC" **6-pcs of "8x4" or "9x5" standard and counter rotating propellers **1-pcs of "i86 Multi-Rotor Control Board" **1-pcs of "Octocopter Power Distribution Board" **1-pcs of "5000mah 3S1P" or "5000mAh 4S1P" **6-pcs of "10CM Male to Male Servo Lead" **6CH TX/RX system


This a well put together package, very sturdy. I used the DT 750 motors, 10x4.5 props and Turnigy plush 25amp escs, I am flying it with 2 turnigy 2200mah 3s 25c packs in parallel and its a super stable machine in the air my flight controller is a Naza from DJI. Or a controller of your choosing.All in all a good package.

Mega Hexacopter LIFTER

This is a short intro on the Heavy Lift Conversion Kit from AerialMediaPros.com CNC'd and anodized our own Aluminum Motor plates. These are ready to mount your Avroto or AXI 2814 motors. They extend the length of the arm, allowing you to run a 11-12" Prop. With this added power and prop combo, you can now safely fly a decent sized Camera Gimbal and DSLR camera. The Copter shown is a F550 NAZA ARF, Built with The AMP Conversion Set, AXI 2814/22 motors, Droidworx Exstended Landing Gear, Photohigher AV130 Gimbal, FPV 520 Cam, and 1.3 Ghz Video TX. The video was a little rough due to the Cheap, Unbalanced Slow Fly Props. I am sure video will be much smoother and clear once the Xoar props arrive. Weight Of F550 Converted with AXI motors, Gimbal, Landing gear, RTF without lipo = 2404 grams Weight RTF With 8000 mAh Lipo, Landing gear, AV130, and Canon T2i= 4042 grams With this RTF set up, and 11X3,8 Props, I was getting right at 5min flight time flying the Canon T2I (766 grams). Exspect closer to 10 min with a GoPro or lighter camera. In the stock configuration, with the larger motors, 11x3.8 props, and conversion kit (No landing gear, camera, or gimbal) I was getting 15.36min flight time using a 4S 6000mAh lipo. TO ORDER the CONVERSION KIT visit AerialMediaPros.com, and visit the store.package including the mounts and (6) Avroto motors available.

"ALL HOBBY-KING" 930 Octocopter Frame

Frame:http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__26455__Hobbyking_X930_Glass_Fiber_Octocopter_Frame_895mm.html

Testing Stabilize mode with my new Octocopter and KK2 firmware, I Did the auto tuning-thing. Lifted of just applying throttle, was then able to hover without mentionable drift, hands off the radio for long periods. Just wonderful. Also tried throwing it around. Was unable to crash it. :) Hobbyking X930 frame, Turnigy D3236-9 motors, 40 Amp Plush, 2x4S 3300 nanotech, HK 6 channel radio/receiver. This is meant to be a Heavylift Octocopter, my calculations say that it should be able to lift about 10kg, but at least 4-5 kilo and still fly very good.

My project with a Hobbyking X930 Octo Frame, D3536 370W motors(!!), 40 Amp ESC's, KK2 controller, 2x4S 3300mAh Nanotech batteries.

Solved it by setting a throttle curve, which is not possible in Acro-mode in many radios, including mine... So, changing from Acro mode to Heli-90, setting channel 1 and 2 Swash at 100%, and channel 6 to 0%.

How to fool the ESC's and APM to only use 35% of the power:

Made the "Normal" throttle curve as 0-8-15-25-35%, and the "Idle Up" throttle curve as 0-25-50-75-100%. I then calibrated the ESC and APM using Idle-Up mode, but used the Normal Mode to fly it, making it much nicer.

I can still flick the Switch to "Idle up" and get the 100% power, should I need it for a heavy lift.

Started of with 12x4.5 props, now running 10x4.5props.

Just today made the first successful hover and testing basic movements with the stock PID settings. Onwards with the PID tuning tomorrow...

This is my new Hoverthings VC-450 frame with the awesome OpenPilot CopterControl Flight Controller. After many test flights and configuration changes i believe i am nearly done with tuning. This flight was the first with a GoPro on board to see exactly how well it handles it. Its a boring flight but it serves its purpose. I do not see any actual flight vibrations, there is SOME slight wobbles but those hopefully i will be able to tune out. Outside of mounting tilt/roll camera gimbals I believe this is probably as good as this one will get. I am very pleased with this build and anticipate the FPV maiden will happen this week.

Hey everybody (especially motor experts)

I am currently finding parts for my next quad, my focus is long flight time fpv with a gopro.

I try to replicate the setup of OFM seeker 450 v2, Ali ShanMao himself tells that this model uses T-motor MT2212-13 980kv, and that this model reaches flight time WELL over 20 minutes. I already ordered the same/or similar frame.

This motor is a tad over my budget (42 USD is the cheapest I could find), but then i came to look at the SUNNYSKY V2216-11 KV800 (lowest price 25.5 USD).

I am new to low level motor comparison, but i guess that for long flight time efficiency (oz/w) is the thing to look for, am I right?

With a 1045/1047 prop, at 11.1v, the Sunnnysky seems to win?

Motors:Turnigy D2830/11 1000

Find more details, and a parts list, on my blog: arxangelrc.blogspot.com Testing and learning to lift off indoor with my new quadcopter. The specifications are as follows: Frame: x525 FC: HobbyKing Board v2.1 Motors: Turnigy D2830/11 1000 ESCs: HobbyKing BlueSeries 30Amps Battery: Turnigy 3s 4000mah 30C Li-Po Tx/Rx: HobbyKing 6ch 2.4Ghz.

I fly my homemade quadrocopter using the HobbyKing Control Board V2.1. I'm flying in my backyard, so there is not a lot of room to maneuver. Also, flying the quad is more difficult than it looks. In such an enclosed area, I'm limited to short flights before losing control and cutting off the throttle. But, I do get a few decent flights.



Main Parts List:

4x Hobby King 30A ESC 3A UBEC

HobbyKing Multi-Rotor Control Board V2.1

GWS HD8040 3 Blade Prop (2x Standard, 2x Counter Rotating)

4x D2830-11 1100kv Brushless Motor

Turnigy 5000mAh 3S 20C Lipo Pack

I'm not sure what the flying weight is but I'm guessing it's between 1.5 to 2 kg.

Lots of LED light strips

She maidened almost flawlessly. Only a few ticks of trim and she was doing great. I even threw her around in acro mode on that first flight. The only drawback to what I did is that the KK2 FC is centered on the lower frame plate, making it almost impossible to see the screen for adjustment. It can be done, but it is a pain. Luckily it flies quite well already. Any poor in-air behavior can be squarely blamed on my mediocre flight skills.

This is my new Hoverthings VC-450 frame with the awesome OpenPilot CopterControl Flight Controller.

After many test flights and configuration changes i believe i am nearly done with tuning. This flight was the first with a GoPro on board to see exactly how well it handles it. Its a boring flight but it serves its purpose.

First flight of my SK450 Quad and my first time flying a quad, so don't expect anything exciting. :)

Wind was 10 to 15 knots which caused the oscillations that are seen in the video. A bit more tuning is needed when the wind dies down a bit.

Pretty happy with the way it performed with only minor adjustments to the recommend initial values for the KK2 board.

im not sure how much payload im going to put but expect 1Kg-2KG max

I have built and put it into the air several times. Here is the list of my setup.

Keep in mind that there are many ways out to set up this thing.

Excellent for its style. Use this list to setup. **6-pcs of "Turnigy D2836/8 1100KV " or "Turnigy2836 1200kv" **6-pcs of "Turnigy Multistar 30 Amp ESC" or "Turnigy Multistar 45 Amp ESC" **6-pcs of "8x4" or "9x5" standard and counter rotating propellers **1-pcs of "i86 Multi-Rotor Control Board" **1-pcs of "Octocopter Power Distribution Board" **1-pcs of "5000mah 3S1P" or "5000mAh 4S1P" **6-pcs of "10CM Male to Male Servo Lead" **6CH TX/RX system

This a well put together package, very sturdy. I used the DT 750 motors, 10x4.5 props and Turnigy plush 25amp escs, I am flying it with 2 turnigy 2200mah 3s 25c packs in parallel and its a super stable machine in the air my flight controller is a Naza from DJI. Or a controller of your choosing.All in all a good package.

Mega Hexacopter LIFTER

This is a short intro on the Heavy Lift Conversion Kit from AerialMediaPros.com CNC'd and anodized our own Aluminum Motor plates. These are ready to mount your Avroto or AXI 2814 motors. They extend the  length of the arm, allowing you to run a 11-12" Prop. With this added power and prop combo, you can now safely fly a decent sized Camera Gimbal and DSLR camera. The Copter shown is a F550 NAZA ARF, Built with The AMP Conversion Set, AXI 2814/22 motors, Droidworx Exstended Landing Gear, Photohigher AV130 Gimbal, FPV 520 Cam, and 1.3 Ghz Video TX. The video was a little rough due to the Cheap, Unbalanced Slow Fly Props. I am sure video will be much smoother and clear once the Xoar props arrive. Weight Of F550 Converted with AXI motors, Gimbal, Landing gear, RTF without lipo = 2404 grams Weight RTF With 8000 mAh Lipo, Landing gear, AV130, and Canon T2i= 4042 grams With this RTF set up, and 11X3,8 Props, I was getting right at 5min flight time flying the Canon T2I (766 grams). Exspect closer to 10 min with a GoPro or lighter camera. In the stock configuration, with the larger motors, 11x3.8 props, and conversion kit (No landing gear, camera, or gimbal) I was getting 15.36min flight time using a 4S 6000mAh lipo. TO ORDER the CONVERSION KIT visit AerialMediaPros.com, and visit the store.package including the mounts and (6) Avroto motors available.

Foam Board Delta Build:

There are many versions of the beloved Delta flying wing. This particular model is made from a single piece of Dollar Tree foamboard, pre-covered with packing tape, and assembled with hot glue and two-sided foam tape. Its mission is to go very fast with a medium-sized powerplant and 3-cell battery pack. It is easy to build, with only two straight wing cuts, two hinge cuts, and two score-fold-glue joints for the vertical stabilizers. The scale and style factor is pretty humble in order to keep the weight down and the build simple, but it can be made to look relatively cool enough with some nice colored packing tape. Wingspan 21", length 19", AUW 500-650g, speed 60-75mph. I have used 1100kV and 1500kV 70g, 330 watt +/- motors with 8x6 APC props and 3-cell 2200mAh battery packs and gotten very respectable performance. A 2200kV with 6x4 and a 1300mAh pack was 400g and pretty quick as well. One could use a higher kV rating and/or cell count for faster speeds. My flying park is pretty tight and surrounded by $$property and vehicles so I keep it tame. A properly balanced tractor prop is very quiet, not like many pusher flying wings. 64mm EDF works very well too, mounted on top, with a paper cup thrust tube. These can be very fast and nimble with a roll rate over 1000 degrees per second, so I would recommend having at least intermediate skills and low rates to start. Launch 1/2 throttle at 30 degree up-angle and trim while at altitude. The EDF does well with landing gear (nose wheel ...

3 cell 2200mah 20-30c lipo

Nice and clean construction. I believe that they are the perfect match for the scratch built frame that I used them with. It is a Hexacopter Y6 configuration, and being a test platform it was not light "at all"... These motors combined with the HobbyKing SS Series 18-20 Card Programmable ESC's was phenomenal! I am now moving on to my next build and these will be used in my new Quadcopter also!

Update 06/09/12 - Since I originally wrote this, frame prices have come down dramatically. The DJI F450 and the Q450 from HobbyKing are very low priced, durable frames that make great starter frames. Similar to the F450, HobbyKing also sells an upgraded version of the Q450 that has a built in PCB, so a wiring harness is not required. These frames are so cheap, it hardly makes since to try and build your own unless you just like to tinker. Also, I have since purchased the VC-450 from HoverThings. It is my favorite frame. However, it has recently been discontinued. It was replaced by an upgraded frame called the HT-450 which is a bit more expensive.

Building your own Frame

I have had a lot of fun building my own quadcopter frames. It is not that difficult and doesn’t require a lot of special tools or materials. However, it does take a lot of time and precise measurements. If you are pretty handy, have a drill or drill press and a hack saw or miter saw, building your own frame is the way to go. Here is my post on building a frame for under $10.

Frames can be made with lots of different materials. At a minimum, you will need some screws, center plates and arms.

Screws

Small screws can be found at rcsrewz.com or McMaster-Carr or on ebay.

Center Plates

Center plate material needs to be rigid, tough and light. I have been using plexiglass discs I bought off ebay, because it is really cheap and looks cool. G-10/FR-4 Epoxy or carbon fiber plates are lighter and probably stronger. But, they cost more and may have to be ordered from Asia to get the best price.

Arms

Quadcopter arms can be made of wood, aluminum, or carbon fiber. Again, strong, rigid and light are the characteristics to look for. I have been using wood. It is not very tough. Wooden arms will easily break in a crash. But, it is so cheap and easy to get that I don’t mind replacing arms when they break. I will probably experiment with aluminum and carbon fiber arms soon. Aluminum will bend in a crash, but it is also fairly cheap. Carbon fiber is probably the best alternative for everything, but it is also the most expensive and harder to find. To get carbon fiber cheap, it must be ordered from Asia. On the other hand, wood and aluminum are usually easily sourced locally.

Conclusion

Everybody has different budgetary and time constraints. For those with unlimited money and little time, kits are the way to go. But, for those of you, like me, who are on a tight budget and enjoy the fun of building stuff, I would suggest DIY all the way!

The purpose of this is to eliminate the horrible jello effect from the video recordings. Today I have been fine tuning the KK2 Board and also added a 3-inch thick foam squashed down to about 5mm between the gopro mounting plate and the frame. The video was a quick test so it wasn't too steady. The result was much better than before as the jello has almost gone! I will need more setting up to get it better.

New multicopter motor – MT 3506 650kv from Tiger Motors (T-motor)

MT 3506 650kv brushless motor

Today I found a very interesting multicopter motor, the T-motor 3506 650 kv from Tiger Motors. This multicopter motor is from their MT series, which is specially developed for multirotors. The other two multicopter motors are MT 2214 and MT 2216.

I have previously written shortly about Tiger Motors because the motor’s bell implies it’s from the same manufacturer as the Avroto motors when I wrote about the Avroto 2814.

MT 3506's long cables makes it easier to have the cables inside the arms of the multicopter frame

For my large heavy lift Y6 multicopter I use the RC-timer BC 3536 750 kv,  but if I one day will build a slightly smaller multicopter I will definitly take a closer look at those MT 3506 multicopter motors.

This quad is perfect for FPV! It flies very stable so it's also capable for some aerial photography (except for the fact that it can only carry a gopro and not something like a Sony NEX-5). At the end of the video there's also some flight footage. Hope you guys like it!

Nice and clean construction. I believe that they are the perfect match for the scratch built frame that I used them with. It is a Hexacopter Y6 configuration, and being a test platform it was not light "at all"... These motors combined with the HobbyKing SS Series 18-20 Card Programmable ESC's was phenomenal! I am now moving on to my next build and these will be used in my new Quadcopter also! For a video, look up the words "moisdude hexacopter teaser" in YouTube ok. OH: by the way, I also bought the 5.4g 200mw transmitter receiver set for doing FPV on my new Quad... :-) Thank you HobbyKing

Foam Board Delta Build:

There are many versions of the beloved Delta flying wing. This particular model is made from a single piece of Dollar Tree foamboard, pre-covered with packing tape, and assembled with hot glue and two-sided foam tape. Its mission is to go very fast with a medium-sized powerplant and 3-cell battery pack. It is easy to build, with only two straight wing cuts, two hinge cuts, and two score-fold-glue joints for the vertical stabilizers. The scale and style factor is pretty humble in order to keep the weight down and the build simple, but it can be made to look relatively cool enough with some nice colored packing tape. Wingspan 21", length 19", AUW 500-650g, speed 60-75mph. I have used 1100kV and 1500kV 70g, 330 watt +/- motors with 8x6 APC props and 3-cell 2200mAh battery packs and gotten very respectable performance. A 2200kV with 6x4 and a 1300mAh pack was 400g and pretty quick as well. One could use a higher kV rating and/or cell count for faster speeds. My flying park is pretty tight and surrounded by $$property and vehicles so I keep it tame. A properly balanced tractor prop is very quiet, not like many pusher flying wings. 64mm EDF works very well too, mounted on top, with a paper cup thrust tube. These can be very fast and nimble with a roll rate over 1000 degrees per second, so I would recommend having at least intermediate skills and low rates to start. Launch 1/2 throttle at 30 degree up-angle and trim while at altitude. The EDF does well with landing gear (nose wheel ...

3 cell 2200mah 20-30c lipo

Nice and clean construction. I believe that they are the perfect match for the scratch built frame that I used them with. It is a Hexacopter Y6 configuration, and being a test platform it was not light "at all"... These motors combined with the HobbyKing SS Series 18-20 Card Programmable ESC's was phenomenal! I am now moving on to my next build and these will be used in my new Quadcopter also! For a video, look up the words "moisdude hexacopter teaser" in YouTube ok. OH: by the way, I also bought the 5.4g 200mw transmitter receiver set for doing FPV on my new Quad... :-) Thank you HobbyKing

Landing gear:

HK450 landing gear works great, but any 450 size helicopter landing skid with mounting holes in the center should work fine.

You will need to buy three parts to build the landing skids.

Optional Modded Parts:

Landing skid arms - http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=11563

Landing skid pipe - http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=11501

Landing skid nuts - http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=11502

Arms:

You will need Y-3,4Quad,6Hexacopter8Octocopterarms, but you should get some spares if you want. Crashings allways nearby.

Short Armed:

The arms are approx 8.5 mm longer than the furthest motor mount hole

Drill the 265 mm arms in the following way (from center to end of arm).

5mm (3mm), 15mm (3mm), 35.5mm (3mm), 46mm (3mm), 223.5mm (3mm), 240mm (4.5mm), 256.5mm (3mm).

The 4.5mm hole is for the motor shaft, the rest is for the center plates and the motor mount.

Long Armed:

The arms are approx 20mm + longer than the extended propellers so when (not IF) you crash, the arms will save the props.

Drill the 300mm arms in the following way (from center to end of arm).

5mm (3mm), 15mm (3mm), 35.5mm (3mm), 46mm (3mm), 223.5mm (3mm), 240mm (4.5mm), 256.5mm (3mm).

The 4.5mm hole is for the motor shaft, the rest is for the center plates and the motor mount.

Make your arms and buy more aluminum than you need as you will probably need to replace the arms at some point.

Nice and clean construction. I believe that they are the perfect match for the scratch built frame that I used them with. It is a Hexacopter Y6 configuration, and being a test platform it was not light "at all"... These motors combined with the HobbyKing SS Series 18-20 Card Programmable ESC's was phenomenal! I am now moving on to my next build and these will be used in my new Quadcopter also! For a video, look up the words "moisdude hexacopter teaser" in YouTube ok. OH: by the way, I also bought the 5.4g 200mw transmitter receiver set for doing FPV on my new Quad... :-) Thank you HobbyKing

This is part 3 of the HobbyKing SK450 Quadcopter. Includes testing and tuning along with first flights. At the end of the video I share some quick final thoughts on the SK450 Quadcopter.

The main frame is high quality glass fiber while the arms are constructed from ultra durable polyamide nylon. This quad not only looks great, its very well thought out as well. Assembly is a breeze with pre-threaded brass sleeves for all of the frame bolts, so no lock-nuts are required. It utilizes one size of bolt for the entire build, making the hardware very easy to keep in order and only requiring one size of hex wrench to assemble. The SK450 also has an orientation feature which is quite clever. It includes a yellow foam ball which you install on a carbon rod that mounts between the frame arms. This not only acts as a bumper to prevent running into obstacles, it also makes for a great orientation aid to keep track of the front of the quad while flying. We offer a full line of multi-rotor electronics such as multi-rotor control board, ESC & motors. It has never been easier or ...

DJI F550 HEAVY LIFT CONVERSION KIT "AVAILABLE NOW FOR F550/F450"



This is a short intro on the Heavy Lift Conversion Kit from AerialMediaPros.com

We have CNC'd and anodized our own Aluminum Motor plates. These are ready to mount your Avroto or AXI 2814 motors. They extend the length of the arm, allowing you to run a 11-12" Prop. With this added power and prop combo, you can now safely fly a decent sized Camera Gimbal and DSLR camera.

The Copter is a F550 NAZA ARF, Built with The AMP Conversion Set, AXI 2814/22 motors, Droidworx Exstended Landing Gear, Photohigher AV130 Gimbal, FPV 520 Cam, and 1.3 Ghz Video TX. The video was a little rough due to the Cheap, Unbalanced Slow Fly Props. I am sure video will be much smoother and clear once the Xoar props arrive.

Weight Of F550 Converted with AXI motors, Gimbal, Landing gear, RTF without lipo = 2404 grams

Weight RTF With 8000 mAh Lipo, Landing gear, AV130, and Canon T2I = 4042 grams

With this RTF set up, and 11X3,8 Props, I was getting right at 5min flight time flying the Canon T2I (766 grams). Exspect closer to 10 min with a GoPro or lighter camera. I will be trying out diffrent prop and lipo configurations to get longer flight times.

In the stock configuration, with the larger motors, 11x3.8 props, and conversion kit (No landing gear, camera, or gimbal) I was getting 15.36min flight time using a 4S 6000mAh lipo.

TO ORDER the CONVERSION KIT

visit AerialMediaPros.com, and visit the store. We have a package including the mounts and (6) Avroto motors available. Shipping begins on May 4.

Feel free to email aerialmediapros@yahoo.com or call 888-557-6791 with any questions.

MT 3506 650kv brushless motor

Today I found a very interesting multicopter motor, the T-motor 3506 650 kv from Tiger Motors. This multicopter motor is from their MT series, which is specially developed for multirotors. The other two multicopter motors are MT 2214 and MT 2216.

I have previously written shortly about Tiger Motors because the motor’s bell implies it’s from the same manufacturer as the Avroto motors when I wrote about the Avroto 2814.

MT 3506's long cables makes it easier to have the cables inside the arms of the multicopter frame

For my large heavy lift Y6 multicopter I use the RC-timer BC 3536 750 kv,  but if I one day will build a slightly smaller multicopter I will definitly take a closer look at those MT 3506 multicopter motors.

Quadcopter V2 - x525 v3 Frame -



HobbyKing are now stocking the x525 -http://hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewitem.asp?idproduct=22800&aff=404649

My second version of my HobbyKing Quadcopter.

The electrics are the same, but added a brand new solid frame (x525 v3 foldable frame). This has made a huge difference in the stability. I did not think I would get it so stable. I specifically like the spring loaded feet on the x525 v3 frame. It is really a simple but solid quadcopter frame - I love it.

The video was recorded using a iPhone 4 (protected in a Otterbox Defender Case). It was pretty windy and I haven't yet built a anti vibration mount for the camera yet. The onboard videos were literally the iPhone taped onto the frame (hence the vibrations).

A few notes:

1 -- I'm not known for my videoing skills

2 - I'm not known for my flying

3 - I'm not known for my building skills! :)

Enough said.... Be nice :)

Kit List - All standard no mods.

Buy any of the following and you will have a good, solid, advanced quadcopter. Why spend £300 or so on a AR Drone when you can buy a proper quadcopter with a decide payload capacity?

With a 3 cell 2200 mAh battery and iPhone attached, I can achieve at least 12 minutes of normal flight. I sometimes strap two 3 cell 2200 mAh battery together and run in parallel to achieve a flight in excess of 25 minutes (normal flight).

This DJI F550 Flame Wheel GPS Naza Ready To Fly Kit is supplied with a Futaba T8J radio control system with the S-Bus enabled full range R2008SB receiver, a powerful 50W LiPo charger and 5200 mAh LiPo battery. This is all you need to fly in one pre-build RTF kit.

This is one of the most popular and easiest to fly HexaCopter with the class leading GPS Naza Flight Controller from DJI Innovations, it can be used for aerial photography, entertainment, FPV (First Person View) flights and other aero modelling activities from the box!.

The F550 Flame Wheel HexaCopter:

The DJI F550 Flame Wheel frames are built from very strong materials, the arms are made from the ultra strong PA66+30GF material which provides better resistance to damage on hard landings, while the main frame plates use a high strength compound PCB material, which makes wiring of the ESC's and the LiPo battery more tidy and safe on the lower of the two frame plates which is also the power distribution board.

The overall frame design of the F550 Flame Wheel frame provides enough space when assembled to fit the GPS Naza Flight Control systems between the top and bottom plates of the Flame Wheel while still allowing enough additional space to add a video transmitter or other systems to the frame for FPV use. The arms supplied in the kit are 2 different colours, 2 red and 2 white to allow for improved visual orientation in flight.

The GPS Naza Flight Controller:$$$$$$$$$$$$

The DJI GPS Naza is the outstanding flight controller from DJI Innovations. The NAZA GPS has RTH (Return-To-Home); IOC (Intelligent Orientation Control) and Low Battery warning (please see the full features and functions list on the GPS NAZA product page for additional information on the features and functions). The DJI GPS Naza Flight Controller is an all-in-one lightweight multi-axis control platform specially designed for multi rotor QuadCopters with the aero model hobbyists in mind. The module integrates all of the controller, gyroscope, accelerometer and a barometer for altitude and position hold all in the one small box located at the centre of the F550 Flame Wheel. There is a two-level low voltage protection system built in to the Naza system; the first is a low voltage LED alarm while the second is an automatic landing, saving expensive repair bills!

The DJI GPS Naza flight controller is different from the DJI Wookong M WKM which is designed for heavy payloads and aerial photography, however the outstanding flight stability and manoeuvrability of the DJI GPS Naza Flight Controller is inherited from the WKM's outstanding flight control algorithms, this means the hobbyists can have access to the very best flight experience and the advanced control algorithm seen on the DJI Wookong M WKM for a much lower price.

The Futaba T8J RC System:

The supplied Futaba T8J with S-Bus enabled full range R2008SB receiver is an easy to use 8 channel RC Radio system. The radio system comes fully programmed ready for flight, with all settings pre-programmed for Home Lock, Corse Lock, GPS Position Hold, Altitude Hold and Return To Home Fail Safe setting in the event of the QuadCopter going beyond the range of the radio, the only setting you will need to adjust is the compass calibration, this has to be carried out at a location close to the place which the QuadCopter will be flown, however it takes about 30 seconds to do and is little more than flicking a switch 10 times to enter the compass calibration mode.

The Futaba T8J is the perfect radio to use with the DJI GPS Naza Flight Controller as it takes full advantage of the Futaba S-Bus system, this means that there is a very tidy installation over and above other non S-Bus systems like the Spektrum DX8 using an AR8000 receiver, this means you only have one wire for all communications with the Naza Flight Controller from the 8J and R2008GS receiver. The Futaba J8 has two, three position switches which allows for all features of the GPS Naza to be used, including the fail safe on loss of signal to Return To Home and land automatically.

The Battery Charger:

The SKY RC IMAX E6650 50W LiPo Battery Charger is the high performance charger supplied in the kit has a large, clear backlit LCD for easy  set-up and use and is very compact, which means that it can be used at either the flight field from a 10 to 18V DC supply (cable included) or in the home with the supplied mains AC cable, AC input is between 100 - 240V. This charger is not just a LiPo charger it has the additional features of a discharger and balancer and can deliver up to 6.0 Amps of charging power for Li-Po, Li-Fe, Ni-Cd, Ni-MH, Li-Ion and Lead Acid batteries. The charger is supplied with the matching balance ports for the LiPo battery in this kit, there is a port for an optional temperature sensor to monitor the battery while on charge.

The Lipo Battery:

The Desire V8 3 Cell 3S 5200 mAh 35C Li-Po battery delivers great performance for every day flights & most sports applications and is matched to the DJI F550 Flame Wheel DJI GPS Naza Ready To Fly Kit. The main power leads fitted to the LiPo pack are matched to the maximum discharge current that the LiPo is capable of. The main battery leads come fitted with the “Deans” style connector to match the F550 Flame Wheel and battery charger power connectors.

The DJI F550 Flame Wheel GPS Naza Ready To Fly kit includes these parts:

6 x 30 Amp Opto ESC's.

6 x 915 Kv 2212 Motors.

6 x 10" Propellers.

Foam Board Delta Build:

There are many versions of the beloved Delta flying wing. This particular model is made from a single piece of Dollar Tree foamboard, pre-covered with packing tape, and assembled with hot glue and two-sided foam tape. Its mission is to go very fast with a medium-sized powerplant and 3-cell battery pack. It is easy to build, with only two straight wing cuts, two hinge cuts, and two score-fold-glue joints for the vertical stabilizers. The scale and style factor is pretty humble in order to keep the weight down and the build simple, but it can be made to look relatively cool enough with some nice colored packing tape. Wingspan 21", length 19", AUW 500-650g, speed 60-75mph. I have used 1100kV and 1500kV 70g, 330 watt +/- motors with 8x6 APC props and 3-cell 2200mAh battery packs and gotten very respectable performance. A 2200kV with 6x4 and a 1300mAh pack was 400g and pretty quick as well. One could use a higher kV rating and/or cell count for faster speeds. My flying park is pretty tight and surrounded by $$property and vehicles so I keep it tame. A properly balanced tractor prop is very quiet, not like many pusher flying wings. 64mm EDF works very well too, mounted on top, with a paper cup thrust tube. These can be very fast and nimble with a roll rate over 1000 degrees per second, so I would recommend having at least intermediate skills and low rates to start. Launch 1/2 throttle at 30 degree up-angle and trim while at altitude. The EDF does well with landing gear.

MT 3506 650kv brushless motor

Today I found a very interesting multicopter motor, the T-motor 3506 650 kv from Tiger Motors. This multicopter motor is from their MT series, which is specially developed for multirotors. The other two multicopter motors are MT 2214 and MT 2216.

I have previously written shortly about Tiger Motors because the motor’s bell implies it’s from the same manufacturer as the Avroto motors when I wrote about the Avroto 2814.

MT 3506's long cables makes it easier to have the cables inside the arms of the multicopter frame

For my large heavy lift Y6 multicopter I use the RC-timer BC 3536 750 kv,  but if I one day will build a slightly smaller multicopter I will definitly take a closer look at those MT 3506 multicopter motors.

Kit List - All standard no mods.

Buy any of the following and you will have a good, solid, advanced quadcopter. Why spend £300 or so on a AR Drone when you can buy a proper quadcopter with a decide payload capacity?

With a 3 cell 2200 mAh battery and iPhone attached, I can achieve at least 12 minutes of normal flight. I sometimes strap two 3 cell 2200 mAh battery together and run in parallel to achieve a flight in excess of 25 minutes (normal flight).

DJI F550 HEAVY LIFT CONVERSION KIT "AVAILABLE NOW FOR F550/F450"


This is a short intro on the Heavy Lift Conversion Kit from AerialMediaPros.com

We have CNC'd and anodized our own Aluminum Motor plates. These are ready to mount your Avroto or AXI 2814 motors. They extend the length of the arm, allowing you to run a 11-12" Prop. With this added power and prop combo, you can now safely fly a decent sized Camera Gimbal and DSLR camera.

The Copter shown is a F550 NAZA ARF, Built with The AMP Conversion Set, AXI 2814/22 motors, Droidworx Exstended Landing Gear, Photohigher AV130 Gimbal, FPV 520 Cam, and 1.3 Ghz Video TX. The video was a little rough due to the Cheap, Unbalanced Slow Fly Props. I am sure video will be much smoother and clear once the Xoar props arrive.

Weight Of F550 Converted with AXI motors, Gimbal, Landing gear, RTF without lipo = 2404 grams

Weight RTF With 8000 mAh Lipo, Landing gear, AV130, and Canon T2I = 4042 grams

With this RTF set up, and 11X3,8 Props, I was getting right at 5min flight time flying the Canon T2I (766 grams). Exspect closer to 10 min with a GoPro or lighter camera. I will be trying out diffrent prop and lipo configurations to get longer flight times.

In the stock configuration, with the larger motors, 11x3.8 props, and conversion kit (No landing gear, camera, or gimbal) I was getting 15.36min flight time using a 4S 6000mAh lipo.

TO ORDER the CONVERSION KIT

visit AerialMediaPros.com, and visit the store. the mounts and (6) Avroto motors available. Shipping begins on May 4.

Feel free to email aerialmediapros@yahoo.com or call 888-557-6791 with any questions.

Foam Board Delta Build:

There are many versions of the beloved Delta flying wing. This particular model is made from a single piece of Dollar Tree foamboard, pre-covered with packing tape, and assembled with hot glue and two-sided foam tape. Its mission is to go very fast with a medium-sized powerplant and 3-cell battery pack. It is easy to build, with only two straight wing cuts, two hinge cuts, and two score-fold-glue joints for the vertical stabilizers. The scale and style factor is pretty humble in order to keep the weight down and the build simple, but it can be made to look relatively cool enough with some nice colored packing tape. Wingspan 21", length 19", AUW 500-650g, speed 60-75mph. I have used 1100kV and 1500kV 70g, 330 watt +/- motors with 8x6 APC props and 3-cell 2200mAh battery packs and gotten very respectable performance. A 2200kV with 6x4 and a 1300mAh pack was 400g and pretty quick as well. One could use a higher kV rating and/or cell count for faster speeds. My flying park is pretty tight and surrounded by $$property and vehicles so I keep it tame. A properly balanced tractor prop is very quiet, not like many pusher flying wings. 64mm EDF works very well too, mounted on top, with a paper cup thrust tube. These can be very fast and nimble with a roll rate over 1000 degrees per second, so I would recommend having at least intermediate skills and low rates to start. Launch 1/2 throttle at 30 degree up-angle and trim while at altitude. The EDF does well with landing gear (nose wheel ...

Bought these, and installed them on my quadcopter w/ 4S and a 11X8.5 APC prop. Plenty of power and torque. Runs pretty quiet, and the amp draw on this  setup is 42A and about 650W. Overall a good motor.

Nice and clean construction. I believe that they are the perfect match for the scratch built frame that I used them with. It is a Hexacopter Y6 configuration, and being a test platform it was not light "at all"... These motors combined with the HobbyKing SS Series 18-20 Card Programmable ESC's was phenomenal! I am now moving on to my next build and these will be used in my new Quadcopter also! For a video, look up the words "moisdude hexacopter teaser" in YouTube ok. OH: by the way, I also bought the 5.4g 200mw transmitter receiver set for doing FPV on my new Quad... :-) Thank you HobbyKing

Landing gear:

HK450 landing gear works great, but any 450 size helicopter landing skid with mounting holes in the center should work fine.

You will need to buy three parts to build the landing skids.

Optional Modded Parts:

Landing skid arms - http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=11563

Landing skid pipe - http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=11501

Landing skid nuts - http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=11502

Arms:

You will need Y-3,4Quad,6Hexacopter8Octocopterarms, but you should get some spares if you want. Crashings allways nearby.

Short Armed:

The arms are approx 8.5 mm longer than the furthest motor mount hole

Drill the 265 mm arms in the following way (from center to end of arm).

5mm (3mm), 15mm (3mm), 35.5mm (3mm), 46mm (3mm), 223.5mm (3mm), 240mm (4.5mm), 256.5mm (3mm).

The 4.5mm hole is for the motor shaft, the rest is for the center plates and the motor mount.

Long Armed:

The arms are approx 20mm + longer than the extended propellers so when (not IF) you crash, the arms will save the props.

Drill the 300mm arms in the following way (from center to end of arm).

5mm (3mm), 15mm (3mm), 35.5mm (3mm), 46mm (3mm), 223.5mm (3mm), 240mm (4.5mm), 256.5mm (3mm).

The 4.5mm hole is for the motor shaft, the rest is for the center plates and the motor mount.

Make your arms and buy more aluminum than you need as you will probably need to replace the arms at some point.

10"x6" Propellers

3 cell 2200mah 20-30c lipo

Nice and clean construction. I believe that they are the perfect match for the scratch built frame that I used them with. It is a Hexacopter Y6 configuration, and being a test platform it was not light "at all"... These motors combined with the HobbyKing SS Series 18-20 Card Programmable ESC's was phenomenal! I am now moving on to my next build and these will be used in my new Quadcopter also! For a video, look up the words "moisdude hexacopter teaser" in YouTube ok. OH: by the way, I also bought the 5.4g 200mw transmitter receiver set for doing FPV on my new Quad... :-) Thank you HobbyKing

Follow this guide @ www.kclbot.com The hardware configuration for the build is as follows: 1 x DJI F450 Frame 4 x KD 2213-20T 19A 1050kv (180W) Brushless Outrunner Motors 4 x Hobbywing Pentium 18amp Brushless Motor esc speed controllers 4 x 10x6E TGS Sport Propellers 1 x HobbyKing Multi-Rotor Control Board 1 x 5C Charge Loong Max 2300mah 4S 30C Tipple Lipo Battery The full details of the project can be found at www.kclbot.com Developed for a project @ King's College London (www.kcl.ac.uk)

This is part 3 of the Video overview of the HobbyKing SK450 Quadcopter. Includes testing and tuning along with first flights. At the end of the video I share some quick final thoughts on the SK450 Quadcopter. SK450 Quadcoter frame kit: www.hobbyking.com SK450 Lower PCB main frame: www.hobbyking.com SK450 Red replacement arms: www.hobbyking.com Turnigy D2836/9 950KV Brushless Motor: www.hobbyking.com Turnigy TY-P1 25Amp HEXFET® Brushless esc: www.hobbyking.com Multi Rotor Accessories: www.hobbyking.com The Hobbyking SK450 is a brilliantly designed 450mm quad frame built from top quality materials. The main frame is high quality glass fiber while the arms are constructed from ultra durable polyamide nylon. This quad not only looks great, its very well thought out as well. Assembly is a breeze with pre-threaded brass sleeves for all of the frame bolts, so no lock-nuts are required. It utilizes one size of bolt for the entire build, making the hardware very easy to keep in order and only requiring one size of hex wrench to assemble. The SK450 also has an orientation feature which is quite clever. It includes a yellow foam ball which you install on a carbon rod that mounts between the frame arms. This not only acts as a bumper to prevent running into obstacles, it also makes for a great orientation aid to keep track of the front of the quad while flying. We offer a full line of multi-rotor electronics such as multi-rotor control board, ESC & motors. It has never been easier or ...

In this video I am testing 2 x 28mm outrunner brushless motors for my HK Bixler I. But this test will help anyone intent on purchasing a 28mm size motor within this KV bracket.

In these tests I use a 2400MaH 3cell 30C Lipo, EMP(e) props and a 40A ESC

I test both motors to their documented Max current draw (both 18A) but notably the NTM is rated for 4s lipos (14.8V) so would be capable of more power if I had one but I don't so this test only demonstrates its performance on a 3s lipo - Both motors are capable of 950grams of thrust on a 11.1v lipo for their given max current draw but the NTM has to use a 9x6 to get it (not suitable for the Bixler) I am using the CNC SmallParts motor mount and can only accomodate an 8" prop (normally only a 6" on the standard motor mount)

Expecting this to rival the Turnigy 2826/6 2200kv for thrust but at lower current draw, and therefore longer flight times with no loss in power :0)

Here's an indoor test flight of my quad. The frame is the Hobbyking X666 Glass Fiber Quadcopter Frame. Flight controller is the Hobbyking KK2.0 Multi-rotor LCD Flight Control Board with auto-level turned on, running firmware 1.5. Overall I'm very impressed with this setup for my first quad build.. There's plenty of power, and the KK 2.0 with auto-level makes for a very stable flight. I had to keep putting it on the ground because I didn't want to hit any furniture. :) Will get an outdoor video soon, whenever it stops snowing. A few notes/recommendations if you build one... Buy a ton of extra props - you'll need them. If you have the extra cash, buy 2nd frame kit.. The X666 comes with an extra aluminum arm but no extra fiberglass components. The fiberglass is going to crack first and you don't want to have to wait for HK's shipping until you get back in the air.

New multicopter motor – MT 3506 650kv from Tiger Motors (T-motor)

MT 3506 650kv brushless motor
Today I found a very interesting multicopter motor, the T-motor 3506 650 kv from Tiger Motors. This multicopter motor is from their MT series, which is specially developed for multirotors. The other two multicopter motors are MT 2214 and MT 2216.

I have previously written shortly about Tiger Motors because the motor’s bell implies it’s from the same manufacturer as the Avroto motors when I wrote about the Avroto 2814.


MT 3506's long cables makes it easier to have the cables inside the arms of the multicopter frame
For my large heavy lift Y6 multicopter I use the RC-timer BC 3536 750 kv, but if I one day will build a slightly smaller multicopter I will definitly take a closer look at those MT 3506 multicopter motors.

This is my new Hoverthings VC-450 frame with the awesome OpenPilot CopterControl Flight Controller. After many test flights and configuration changes i believe i am nearly done with tuning. This flight was the first with a GoPro on board to see exactly how well it handles it. Its a boring flight but it serves its purpose. I do not see any actual flight vibrations, there is SOME slight wobbles but those hopefully i will be able to tune out. Outside of mounting tilt/roll camera gimbals I believe this is probably as good as this one will get. I am very pleased with this build and anticipate the FPV maiden will happen this week.

Today I found a very interesting multicopter motor, the T-motor 3506 650 kv from Tiger Motors. This multicopter motor is from their MT series, which is specially developed for multirotors. The other two multicopter motors are MT 2214 and MT 2216.

I have previously written shortly about Tiger Motors because the motor’s bell implies it’s from the same manufacturer as the Avroto motors when I wrote about the Avroto 2814.


MT 3506's long cables makes it easier to have the cables inside the arms of the multicopter frame
For my large heavy lift Y6 multicopter I use the RC-timer BC 3536 750 kv, but if I one day will build a slightly smaller multicopter I will definitly take a closer look at those MT 3506 multicopter motors.

Clone WARs HexaCopter

DJI F550 clone lenghtened by 4cm each. M2M raised from 550 to 630mm. Using 12x4.5 Gemfan propellers with Turnigy Park450 1050kv motors, 18A Plush escs and Naza FC. Powered by 2s lipo, AUW ~1370g. Naza gains need to be adjusted. Disk loading is not the best for Naza, around 4.7kg/m2. The 2200mAh/45C 2s lipo is quite warm, although the max. C draw is 43C/6.8V. Need to get a higher capacity one.

HobbyKing are now stocking the x525 -http://hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewitem.asp?idproduct=22800&aff=404649

My second version of my HobbyKing Quadcopter.

The electrics are the same, but added a brand new solid frame (x525 v3 foldable frame). This has made a huge difference in the stability. I did not think I would get it so stable. I specifically like the spring loaded feet on the x525 v3 frame. It is really a simple but solid quadcopter frame - I love it.





Kit List - All standard no mods.

Buy any of the following and you will have a good, solid, advanced quadcopter. Why spend £300 or so on a AR Drone when you can buy a proper quadcopter with a decide payload capacity?

With a 3 cell 2200 mAh battery and iPhone attached, I can achieve at least 12 minutes of normal flight. I sometimes strap two 3 cell 2200 mAh battery together and run in parallel to achieve a flight in excess of 25 minutes (normal flight).
