GoPro mount

Tried to fashion a new gopro mount on the quad tonight. I used a GoPro layer lens plate and "rubber bobbin" replacements that I ordered with my QAV. I have gel on the plate right now but I might end up going with the foam pad that came with the layer lens plate. Sorry the photos are small I sent them to myself from my phone but didnt want them to be too big to upload. I will test it tomorrow if I get home from work before the sun goes down.

hey that is pretty cool...i was thinking of doing something like that myself...one of these days..although...earplugs from the local hardware store work really well too...just have to make sure the camera is only slightly sitting on them...no compression.....

My base station is using

*ImmersionRC EZantenna tracker
*immersionRC duo 5800 5.8ghz diversity reciever
*readymaderc pan and tilt setup
*7dbi patch antenna
*right hand circular polarized skew planar wheel antenna
*fatshark dominators

Hope this helps. FYI the only reason I'm using 5.8ghz is bc all my 1.3ghz stuff is being used on my other frames. You can go way farther and have way better video with just a 1.3ghz 400mw vid tx and a 1.3ghz rx. I would put cp antennas on them aswell. It's way cheaper than my 5.8 setup and way better in my opinion. Plus it's quicker to setup bc you don't have to wait for the tracker to get setup.

I requested them when I ordered and Tom was kind enough to throw them in.

No problems. Don't have as many flights as would like to on them.

@ flohio117

Any pics of your base station?

TIA

Hey guys I have a question about setting up a HT FPV frame quad copter.

What soldering is required to make it? The power distribution board and the motors both require soldering right? Anything else? Is there any way to set it up without having to do any soldering? I'm asking because I'm trying to hold off on getting a soldering iron until I have to.

Thanks to anybody who helps,
Matt

Also does anybody have some high end motors and or esc's they would recommend for the HT FPV? I'm looking for ease of installation. I would like the wires to be the proper length for the frame and motors to fit into the motor mounts without having to modify things.

Thanks for any suggestions!

You will probably need to do some soldering eventually...however..i know that you can find a wiring harness on rcdude.com that might work for you...he has motors too...i order from him a lot and he is quick on the shipping...check it out and if it works for you then awesome..if not...you will find something eventually...also...i would recommend the ipower motors...they are multi rotor specific...

Good luck

Thanks a ton dude I appreiate that. I'm not sure but I think the iFlight iPower 2217Q 880kv Motors might be my best pick. Located here: http://www.rcdude.com/servlet/the-24...ushless/Detail

Do you think these motors will mount right onto the HT-FPV?

And then these ESC's: iFlight iPeaka 30A ESC with SimonK Firmware. Located here: http://www.rcdude.com/servlet/the-24...30A-ESC/Detail

and then the 4 to 1 Power Harness - Male Deans to 3.5mm Bullet Connectors.

Think this will work well?

Yes...i think you will be happy with that setup...very minimal soldering if any since those ipowers come with the bullets on them...at most you may have to solder bullets to the esc's..but that is really simple...

ht-fpv center of gravity

Do you place the CC board at the hoverthings suggested COG? Or do you load the frame (motor, battery, camera, etc) and determine the new COG from there?


<When you get your board, make sure you place exactly at COG...i made the mistake of mounting mine way too far forward and it just wanted to flip over. So i tied a string from each motor and put my board where the strings met in the middle...exactly COG...as soon as i did that, she lifted off just fine...then it was on to the tuning...>

I think once the board is at that perfect tune...the HT-FPV frame will fly really nice[/QUOTE]
