FH-X46 new quadcopter and hexacopter controller from FOXTECH




installed the FH-X46 on a hexacopter frame last night , i will make some videos soon

Here comes a new quadcopter and hexacopter controller!

FH-X46 is an advanced quadcopter & hexacopter controller, it adapts high speed or normal speed pwm ESC, which means you can use big ESC to make a big quadcopter or hexacopter with extra lifting capacity!

FH-X46 controls the copter at very high refresh speed, and your copter will stay solid in the air! apart from many other advantages, the most impressive one is that it's not vibration vulnerable .

a copter with FH-X46 on it can be a very good and stable platform for FPV

it's as easy as flying a fixed wing!

To assemble a quadcopter or hexacopter

we suggest you to choose our quadcopter or hexacopter frame , 4 or 6 esc like hobbywing 10A esc(high speed version), and a FH-X46.

add your own 2-4S lipo battery and RC receiver on it

and you are ready to go!
It now supports X4/X6 copter, change the mode simply by clicking on the switch

Test videos:
FH-X46 quadcopter or hexacopter controller test (3 min 7 sec)

FH 46 (2 min 1 sec)

fly while hanging a battery on the side 2 (0 min 56 sec)

fly while hanging a battery on the side 1 (0 min 22 sec)

throw away at idle and push the throttle (0 min 23 sec)

FH-X46 quadcopter and hexacopter controller-- some moves (0 min 19 sec)

FH-X46 on quadcopter hanging a current meter (1 min 40 sec)

FH-X46 on hexacopter fly in heavy wind (0 min 54 sec)

What firmware are you shipping with this board?

Did you know it can do more then two modes?

Are you going to be making the files available for download ?

We need more information.

thank you.

this model is the X4/X6 model,
change the mode by switching the only switch on the board
will release more data

you need better video. Those vids do not help sell that board at all. Cant even see if its stable. The onboard vid is horrible. The FC might be good but I cannot tell from your vids.

it is good!

#6 tc3wins Apr 29, 2011 03:33 AM

Looks pretty good, the Price is a little steep. what kind of sensors are on the board.

#7 timecop Apr 29, 2011 04:43 AM

Freescale accel, invensense gyro. No pressure/mag.
Looks like a low-tech rip of autoquad

Copy made of PCB is so easy............
Hi, right Timecop. Copy.

#9 timecop Apr 29, 2011 06:43 AM

Nah its not a copy. It could be using code from autoquad, making the board isn't that difficult. Could be entirely original too, who knows. Just taking a wild guess.

It's at taobao probably even cheaper, have at it.

#10 tc3wins Apr 29, 2011 06:49 AM

I think for the price the new hoverfly board will be better and well. it is in the states.

#11 glassfox Apr 29, 2011 11:02 PM

it's definitely not a copy
it is an origninal design from a dedicated engineer.
it use 3axis gyro ad 3 axis accelerometer
and ARM chipset
i am not professional on electronics design ,but i heard it use similar sensors of AR. drone
it does controls the copter at the fastest rate i have ever seen
for example, both Gaui GU344 and MK FC controls the copter poor upon sudden drop, the copter may sway alot, but it didn't happen on FH-X46
see the vids
uploading more videos

what a pitty we can t use hold altitude or gps module!!!!on top of that it s impossible to upgrad the firmware..

#14 glassfox May 02, 2011 07:29 AM

well, just consider it is very easy to set, immune to vibration and compatible with PWM ESCs ,you can lift a lot weight with a copter using FH-X46

#15 mahui625 May 09, 2011 03:59 AM

it is not copy.
