Skywalker 3 Build Advice and Eventual Build Thread!
I recently got back into RC (originally was a gas person, now switching to electronics ;)) and have been really interested in trying to setup an FPV plane.
I've learned a lot searching these forums and others and found that basically an FPV system requires little programming and is pretty simple to engineer together. I have some experience in electronics and circuit building, so I was planning on implementing some sort of flight controller in the distant future as well as ArduPilot (http://www.diydrones.com/).
Anyways, I have spent many hours trying to figure out what are the best parts for my plane. I have enough of a budget to get some pretty high quality stuff, but not TOO high quality, if you know what I mean.
A few questions I have before you take a look at my list:
- What is the range on a radio/transmitter combo? I'm still unsure as to which radio to get since I sold my old one.
- Not sure what LiPo's I will need
- Would my motor and ESC been enough for more load in the future?
- What would be a good setup or place to learn about a setup for head tracking?
Here is my list. Please take a look and let me know what you think. There are a few misc items that I just added as I went through other people's builds and added them.
Eventually I will turn this into a build thread as I plan on ordering the materials pretty soon.
I would get the BEVRC custom skywalker motor and ESC plus 4s 5000mah lipo from hobbyking.
Cir2kuk, I will order that motor and ESC instead. Thanks for the advice.
