Vulcan multiframe skyhook series

Hi im starting this thread to have some discussions about the VULCAN MULTIFRAME SKYHOOK SERIES frames and to find out from the people that do have them

What do they think about it.

Im busy building a VULCAN MULTIFRAME Hexa 1200mm and its huge., with avroto motors and t-motor 30amp esc.

If you own a VULCAN MULTIFRAME SKYHOOK SEries frame would you be so kind and share your setup and what equipment you use on it?

Here is a link to the manufactures http://www.vulcanuav.com/vulcan-multiframe.html

Just note i do not work for vulcanauv and have no connection with them this is plain a information exchange thread and discussions.

Very cool video.
Have you done anything to reduce the jello effect?

Iam flying a 880mm Vulcan Hexa with AXI motors and 13.x 6.5 props weighs about 12.5 lbs AUW. Working on fine tuning the setup of machine and gimbal, but so far really like it. Here is a test video and photo of the Hexa.

That video was taken by the Greek Distributor for the Vulcan Multiframe. I just posted it to show you how it handles in the wind.

I use 2 4S 5000 packs with the AXI 2814-22 flight times with 12.5 lb payload is about 9 minutes with reserve. If I go to 13.5 lbs shortens flight time to about 8 minutes.

I would assume Michael meant AUW. 12.5lbs. of payload isn't going to happen and get 8 minutes of flight time.

Because its so huge frame im going to build the frame to take off the arms for transport. On each arm im going to put a dean connector witch will connect to my wire harness .

It hardly fits in my car i will also make it to fold up to transport in car back seat but for airplane or long distance jobs i will take arms off to carry in my stormcase siutcase.
