PostSubject: Quad build   Tue Mar 20, 2012 7:17 am

I picked up an old frame ron had in a little exchange of rc gear and I landed this frame that ron had used previously, it did have a vent hole in the top as ron will confirm but for me it did not look right and spoiled the smooth lines. (no offence ron)
After a little work in the shop I've filled the vents and added landing gear with a view to hooking the go-pro underneath and somehow get the flight lipo under the frame too.
Its a bigger frame than I've used before at 23 inches motor to motor but should fly well on 10/12 inch props using the multiwii as the FC.


I should have taken pics before hand but hey Hindsight is a wonderfull thing.

This thing is huge btw those props are not the flight props there for setup only and they are 11 inch props, I'll be using 12 inch on the finished quad.

Roy the props arrived today 12 inch in size and fit perfect, for 1.70 a pair they will do the job nicely and it's easier on the pocket.

I started off adding a little support to the Landing gear and from there I had another idea.

<a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/31266615@N03/6864853968/" title="20120324_135827.jpg by kf52t, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7207/6864853968_0b20f98fac_z.jpg" width="640" height="386" alt="20120324_135827.jpg"></a>

Then I added this, theres no real weight involved but it gets the gopro higher and thats what i was looking for.

Flight board arrived....... to cut a long story short its going back too... piece of crap and poorly put together IMO nothing works as it should and even programming the damn thing is a PITA.
I'll hunt around for another board so its gonna be a few weeks before I can test out this frame.

I did that scouse and its defo a faulty board, the pitch is mixed in with the throttle when its at max and the status green area for level/mag/baro are all on and a second later there all off, theres no signal coming from the pitch or yaw pins on the board but roll and throttle are fine.
I mailed the seller he sent a newbie setup guide lol .. if only it was that easy.
