My T580 Frame reborn as AQ580Pro

Hi all , yes my T580 is History. I throw the Lotus Rc FC and the I2C Escs out.
Now have Implanted the AQ50Pro with the 1.2v . Escs from Turbo Jet 30A, Motors from Lotus Rc 650Kv , 11x4,5" Props from Flyduino.net, Landing Gear original Lotus.
Very Windy, nearly too much for this slow Motors and 11" Props. But will be a perfect Hover and Cam Quadro, before I hover around with a 2200mah Lipo - 24minutes. Complete Weight is 1125 Gramm - inc. Lipo !!
AQ580Pro TestFlight 2 (4 min 3 sec)

Between Lower Shell and Dome i put Spacer, around in Space i make a black Plastik Ring, So is now inside enough Room for the New TMF NAVI Board, for the AQ50Pro. Inside the Dome it comes self-adhesive copper foil , for better and More GPS Sattelites reception.
On Top then the GPS Receiver. ASAP Right Mahui ?

Now the Onboard Video , made with my VGA Spy Cam. RAW Video. You can see nicly the hard countermeasures from the AQ50Pro Fc at this Windy Day between to Houses.
Onboard AQ580Pro Video Test Flight 2 (12 min 21 sec)


NO Cam Gimbal and SD Card is a slow one, this is why Ticking in Video sometimes.

Hi pietronet, yes . Last Year when I get the T580 from Lotus Rc I do Testing. The same as Today. Only a other Fc. I think now Props are 11" as last Year 12" and some Plastik Spacing and 4 normal escs , Weight was 950gramm or so, Flight Time now ? it will be less but in any Case more than 15min. Will try next 12" and do testing Indoor Hovering. These Motors from Lotus Rc are Great . Today it was too windy. The Motors can not react so fast the AQ FC send control Commands.

Another Flight Test Day

Hi all, today the same heavy Wind as yesterday. I was not so happy with the sensitivity of the Motors, when it was windy , somtimes hard to fly and near a keel over when the Wind throw my AQ580pro around. Also the Yaw was bad. Upps, found lose screws at Motor mounts. Fixed. But It looked as if the ESCS were behind with the control signals. But I adjust the Gain Poti today , on FC-Board a little more UP , CCW. Then it was better. First ( Yesterday ) it wobble when lift off. I screw it down ( CW ) , the senitivity then was first too low. The Wind Bounce my Quad. It is Tricky to adjust when Slow Motors and Big Props. But now better. Also is my Quad Motor to Motor 580mm. Slow Motors and Big Props will need more fine adjust.
My RX/TX is a super simple Esky 6CH - Settings are Ail=REV , ELE= Nor , THR= Nor , RUD = Nor.
When I found a Indoor Place , will Test the Max Flight Time.
Video RAW ! No Cam Stabi , no Gimbal, Cam Casio exilim Z100, mount on Top with Cam Screw and BLUE-TAck between .
I can see no Vibration, and you? Sorry No money for HD cam.
AQ580Pro Test Flight 3 (0 min 50 sec)

Hi Orphee,
are you using the default DJI 30A OPTO ESCs? Did you try it indoor or by no wind, too? Would you propose the F450 + AQ50DPro combo for a beginner?

No Wind , next Flight

Hi all, a firend send me his Aq50pro. For Testing out the Fc.He had his problems with ESCS. The escs always beeping continuously. But the AQ50pro Fc is 100% right. Now it can only be a Failure at the ESCS.
Watch out at 2:50min , what hard fast control commands with NIck and Roll.
Incredibly fast reactions to the FC. Clean Piece of Art. Good.

It's not a failure, it's only a mismatch of the PWM signal. Most likely the output from the AQ50d is higher than what the ESC detects as idle. What you can try is calibrate the ESCs with a lower throttle curve low value.

I would call it rather normal. Most flight controls have a PWM output of 380 to 400 Hz. Sensor readings are even faster, between 100 and 400 KHz so I don't think that anyone can "see" if a FC works faster or not. You could gain the same result with MK, MultiWii or DJI.
