Documenting my scratch build mini H quad for FPV.
I think the mini H quad was a success and want to share it if some one want some ideas for building a mini H.
My inspiration came from the Black out mini H and this discussion on RCgroups and I build it mostly out of stuff I had at home.
The carbon fiber plate on top of the quad is not needed. I use it as a floating plane on top of the frame to reduce vibrations to the camera and electronics. It is taped to the frame with two layers of double sided foam tape (fästkuddar in Swedish). See attached picture.
The credit cards are taped with double sided tape on to the two alu. rods lengthwise and screwed with plastic M3.
Dimensions Motor to motor L=142mm B=190mm
Suitable weight 400 - 500g
Consuming power in hover <100W @ 490g
Max power measured in flight 160W
Flight time with 1300mAh 3S and FPV gear = around 5min
If you want cheap goggles for FPV and dont care about how it looks I can recommend to trash a pair of Trimersion 3001AD and screw it to an ordinary baseball hat. I bought it on ebay for 99$ shipping included. Works really great. http://shop.ebay.com/i.html?_nkw=Trimersion
There are several mods in this forum http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...=925051&page=7
I took out the video board with optics, hard wired the 5V and the video signal and attached it to a baseball cap (without the cap). Very simple, lightweight and comfortable. Ugly thou... I also glued a plastic can on it to protect the electronics. This mod is about 2h work...
