PostSubject: A Quad that has no orientation issues   Wed Feb 15, 2012 5:12 am

I've been looking around for a quad design to switch my existing board to and I came across this one, for 25 quid delivered it comes with everything you need to get the frame together Imo its a steal and I'm looking forward to getting this one in the air.










Should be a good flyer as so far it weighs nothing but I'm sure that will change when its loaded up with the electronics.
I'll update the thread when the motors arrive, the rest I already have.

(Justin this is the one i was talking about on saturday)

To give you idea of how these fly and look in the air this is the closest I could find.



This guy using the same power setup I have for mine.

It's coming along very nicely Jeff, look at the frame top view you can see where the esc's are going to be mounted, looks like they actually thought this one through but time will tell.

Motors have gone awol in the post so I ordered others and the build continues, it a squeeze getting four esc's in this frame but it's getting there, I'll throw up a few pics later when they are all in.
This quad is looking really sweet and very stream lined.

The motors are in and the main wiring is now done there's a few more hours on setting this up and it will be ready to test fly. The new sketch is configured for the quad X and its uploaded to the Arduino board. I ran a few tests in the GUI and so far its showing everything running perfect on standard settings, the settings will be fine tuned when its all finished to get it flying as stable as possible.
Images show setup so far, I will be moving the RX to fit inbetween the frame under the wii control board to keep it out of harms way if it flips over.

Motors look sweet with no wiring on show.


The 12 amp esc's are more than enough for these 1200kv motors, they do look good too.


As I said in the title of this thread Orientation should not be an issue, the next 2 images should show this.




I still have a few tricks to add to this Quad, I'll update this thread with the progress and hopefully a maiden video.

I have a new toy to play with for setting up planes or quads and even helis, it should smooth things out and make it perform even better, I'll do a video on testing and see how it goes.
Keep an eye on this one Jeff your gonna love it Wink

After a few hours tweaking the settings a quick test flight to make sure it
actually gets off the floor, all is good and It flys.

Now for the serious setting up to refine the controls and overhaul stability.
