Havoc 340 - High Speed FPV Quad

The Havoc 340 is the first release from Aerial Havoc. We have been developing this frame for the past six months. The frame has gone through three major changes/versions. It is intended to be a fast, action packed thrill ride of an FPV adventure. We run our Havocs with 2200mah 4s all the way up to 3300mah 4s. Balancing the weight is easy since the lipo is directly under or over the center of mass.

The frame is 340mm motor-to-motor and designed around 2208-2217 size motors with 6" or 7" props and a 3 or 4 cell lipo

Havoc 340 Build Tips:

Corrected video showing how to bridge the inductor pads with a solder bridge.

PDB Build Tutorial - no inductor (4 min 32 sec)



For those with version 1 of the PDB, (if you're PDB has the word "inductor" on it, it's V1):
Leave the inductor off, bridge the two pads with a jumper wire.

Hopefully this will help some of the confusion that folks are having with the PDB layout and what is connected to what.

The traces shown here are accurate when considering what is connected to what, however the traces do not actually run where they are pictured. I've moved them around and resized them to make them easier to follow.

Hope this helps. I'll be doing more tutorials and layout photos/videos over the next week to make the build even easier.

Shaun, this is going to be a hit bro. Nice design, completely different from the other frames in the market. Your wood frames were really good, this is going to be even better�� Good job mate.
