New Scratch-built QuadCopter
Well after the 2nd and last crash with my HK Mini Quad frame, i was in no mood to reapair it, so i went with a scratch-build.
I went with Randells Elcheapo Home Depot" basswood and ply frame
I mean where can you get a quad frame for less then 10bucks? Hobby King you say!!:rolleyes: I knew when i put that frame together it wasn't going to last!!
This one is soooo!!! much stronger! It took about 2-3 hrs to cut and build. I used 100% Gorilla Super Glue! Its the newest glue they have, and it has the viscosity of Med CA, sets in about 15-20 sec enough to let it cure. I then Clamped it moving on to the next. Its dried clear and has a Expoy look when dried.
Strong as ole hell too!!:D
Which i need for my Quad Skillz. I just have a hard time keeping orientation.
I'm going to use a loft over piece of stock and shim it between the 2 plates when tightening down the 550 Align Hili skid,(Thanks Brent!) its clamps it in there perfect!
I want to see if it having a tail like a Hili would help. I can Fly Hilis pretty good! Cause to me a QuadCopter is like flying a frisbe!! :p
I don't have any kind of Elec saw, so i cut the pieces buy hand with a hobby back saw!
AUW is just over 1000g with 2200mah
Link to Randalls Build thread!!!
Heading out in a couple of hrs for the Maiden. Its a beauty of a day here 1C and sunny and no wind!! feels nice and spring like!!
I added this tail boom this morning to maybe...just maybe!! Help with orientation.
I can hover the thing all day long!! But forward flight/flying is not the greatest!
I guess it takes practice but i'm impatient...
Some new Videos.
