And a question, does goodluckbuy or other place carry the boom clamps used in this octo? A place where I can get spare parts like this one?

Thanks
Reginak, I just saw that this is the best place to get parts from;

It was in a post from a few pages ago. Looks like they have just
about everything and I wonder why Good Luck Buy does not!

Parajeff,

Two questions.

- What power distro is you using?
- What is your expected AUW? I'm asking this because I already have a skyjib (currently crashed and being rebuild) and now I want something cheaper as an AP backup, and I think my AUW will be something like 7kg (15.5lbs) and I will be using 15" like JAB.

My only worry is that the frame is not stiff enought for this kind of AUW... I think JAB was the only one what tested it with a lot of weight but it was only 4 seconds and I can't tell if it was stiff or not during this short flight..


Thanks

I will be using a Spectrum DX-18 Tx, AR8000 Rx, 8 Castle ICE50 ESC, 8 HL
48-22 490kv motors, and 2 x 3S or 4S - 40C 5000mAh packs in parallel to give
3S or 4S 10,000mAh.

My AUW should be around 10lbs with out a camera and around 15 with a Canon 7D.
I will definately refine these estimates as the Octo build is completed, weighed, and
tested. I hope that this helps.

Question for Batfire

Hey Bat,

Is it necessary to use a washer between the Hex motor attachment
screw and the CF motor mounts? As you can see in this photo, I did
not, but before I use thread lock I wanted to be safe and ask you first.

BTW thats a heck of a nice build you got going there. I picked up the quadframe Hexacopter but wont start actual construction until after mid October due to very busy and finishing th X830 project.

hey papajeff,

if i can ask, are the plates easily bendable, as in, if you grab both sides and try to flex or bend them? i just want to know the quality and stiffness of these copies. its the shine that deceives me

IHMO the CF plates and the booms do not flex at all and I have seen some very
cheap CF used on other models. Also, I believe that CF is now available in many
different finishes and they all look slightly different.

Flozano, I had planned to start with 12x4.5 props and go from there. However,
from what I have seen on the posts here, I have a feeling that because my
motors (HL Model: W48-22 490KV) are going to be extremely powerful on the
Octo using a 6S pack, I might have to test several smaller size props (11, 10,
9 inch) or go with a 4S pack. Obviously, I will know for sure when I get to the
testing stage of my build.
