Hovership MHQ Mini-Quad!

Hi folks,

I'm not too far off owning a HoverShip MHQ that a forum friend is printing for me and I'd like to know how many others have printed one of these and what hardware you are using with it?

Pics of setups too would be awesome!!

Cheers,

Alan.

Hi folks,

Its been a little while since I posted in this thread of mine so I though I would show you all the maiden FPV flight of the litte guy.

I'm absolutely loving this mini quad, I've gone from the KK2.0 board to the Naze32 Acro board and flying in manual/rate mode its a beast!!

As for the FPV setup, I'm running a ReadyMadeRC Pico V2 camera coupled to the ReadyMadeRC 1280g Pico Vtx and they are both running off a Pollolu 5v step up from a single 180mah 1s battery. I get about two to three 6 minute flights off the little battery and the quad itself is running a 4s 1300mah Zippy Compact pack. The recording is done with a Mobius with normal lens.

Anyway, here is the video.

Heres my latest video of the HoverShip. I'm now running a Naze32 onboard and have been experimenting with flips and rolls! This little thing rolls quicker than you can blink!

Bump of an old thread.

This is one of the few threads I could find on this frame, so thought I would post up here.

Just got mine built about a week ago and loving it so far.
This is my first quad of this size (5" props) and I am loving it compared to my 7" and 10" prop quads.
My 7" (Armattan 258) has more power, but this one just seems to fly so well for FPV.

This is also my first 3D printed item, which sparked my interest in getting a 3D printer again,,,,
I have one on the way!!! Very excited to start cranking out parts, already working on a nice mount for the FPV camera to replace my zipties.

It has even taken one fairly hard crash and survived well, just had to pop a few of the rubber bobbins back in place.

ReadytoFly 12A ESCs
SunnySky X2204 2300kv Motors
5" GemFan Props
FrSky RX
Sony FPV Cam
ImersionRC 600mW Video TX
2200mAh and 1500mAh packs (its fine with 2200 but 1500 does fly with a bit more power)
AUW without Battery= ??? (notes at home, will edit later)
