I am using the Multistar High Capacity 6S 10000mAh Multi-Rotor Lipo Pack. As so far they seem to do pretty well for the money. I think these batteries are the cheapest 10000mah 6s lipo that i can find. I got 15min of flight with a 4.9kg AUW (that weight included everything, battery, camera, gimbal and etc) tarot Hexa with these battery.

Just a heads up guys, Apparently today is model avaiation day, who knew.


Anyway...


Hobbyking has the 4S 10,000 mAh multistars on sale for $29.00. They normally run $58. I paid $67 when I bought my original two.


I use these in the skyhuner as well with great results so just wanted to pass this on.

Would you guys go with an AVDome to protect the FC, or just install it directly to the frame?

I moved 4 of the standoffs for the stock top-mount battery tray to the outer holes to free up the 4 central holes to mount a vibration dampening mount for the flight controller, so that could easily be mounted under the battery tray. If I go the AV dome route, the controller will be much better protected in the event of a crash, but it adds a good bit of weight to the build.

I think the upper battery tray is pretty strong, though and could provide a decent amount of protection itself. And I want the option to use the top battery tray and add a second battery in parallel hanging from the tubes to balance a gimbal and get longer flight times.

I've got a question for you experience Tarot 680 fliers. I've bashed a Talon Tricopter into a Y6. I'm using SS 3508 580kv motors with APC 14" MR props on 4S. It flies great, but I get what I think is aerodynamic vibrations from the over/under prop arrangement...which shakes my camera gimbal and I haven't been able to isolate it enough to make usable videos.

I'm looking at the Tarot 680 hex as a replacement frame, but I want to use the same same power setup I already have. I'm assuming I'll need longer arms to use 14" props. How much longer do the arms need to be...or perhaps, has anyone tried mounting the middle motors upside down and the front and back motors right side up? I'd like to keep the frame as small as possible for transportation purposes. I've also been looking at the ATG H4 folding quad of similar size, but folds up to an even smaller package. I'm just concerned dropping to a quad will effect my lift capability (not a huge deal for a GoPro anyway). The flat hex might survive a motor out condition better than a quad will though.

FWIW, I also have some APC 12" MR props, but I felt they were to weak on my Y6 unless I stepped up to 5S. I'd rather stay 4S as I can use them on other currently owned fixed wing and multirotor platforms. Also, are the Tarot retracts worth getting too?

I appreciate any inputs.

When build this multirotor are you advised to use loctite on the metal to metal screws? If so what type of loctite? I'm cautious as last time I used loctitie it disintegrated all my phantom's arms.

I use this one:

Works perfectly. Screws are tight, but I still can loose them with a bit of force. Not ultra-hard-force, but it won't come loose in flight.

Just use a dab of nail polish vs lock-tite. It'll help locks things in place, but will break away easier if/when you need to remove things...and it comes in a variety of pretty, pretty colors!!!!
