Daniel’s 3D printer creating a GoPro camera mount for my 220mm quadcopter!
- 237gr of pure power…
- 4s capable
- stable frame
- Best possible airflow with less resistance
- Below 250gr
- HD-video onboard thanks to runcam
- 3″ props
Welcome back at another episode of how to build the perfect frame. While the market is spreading exponantially at the moment I´ll do some research on new ways to design frames. At the moment I´ll deal alot with flow characteristics and a special low-resistance frame design. This kind of design offers lot of optimizations but is quite complicated to design. I still play with 3″ prop versions so there is much options to try out at this size. I have to say due to less free time I can´t stay on the topic but I´m sure right now that this will have a huge impact on energy consumption and flight times…
the actual internal name is „super“ but stay connected it will be announced soon. The design is in refining status and will be finalized the next few weeks. Also test flights wil begin shortly but I´m quite sure there will be not that much to improve on it.
Since I traveled with my tiny mosquito for the last 4 weeks through the Philippines I want to show you how compact a full field fpv setup can be.
- Mosquito 130mm racer
- Eachine EV100 goggles
- Taranis X9D+
- 4x lipo 3S 800mAh
- 2x lipo 4S 650mAh
- Eachine ROTG01 receiver for spotters
- Taranis battery
- Eachine battery for goggles
- Camera bag from „hama“
- ISTD battery checker
Find also below an example what video quality is possible with this 2130gr field setup. What’s missing is tools for maintenance, a charger and spareparts. But this depends partly on the skills of the pilot and the rigidness of the frame. I didn’t even killed one part of the racer in the last 4 weeks. I also didn’t use tools for maintenance as it was flying like a charm.
You can shrink down the fieldsetup with less batteries. But for longer flight sessions these 6 lipos had been far enough in my opinion.
While travelling I love to explore skyscraper rooftops. Today I checked out the roof terrace of my hotel in Malate-Manila. See the results…
