Hi, Fajar,
it's ok, take your time ,
and thank you for the comments on Foxtech,
I attached some working progress photos here,
starting shipping the Glyder 600 now,
but we ordered a bigger box than necessary.
so you may find a lot of foam balls in the package.

FU,

I see all the motor wires are short and have connectors on them, will these have enough wire to run around the frame? my other Tiger motors came with plenty of wire on them for a multi?. Also are these wires crimped or soldered?

Kind Regards

Jim.

I am also wondering how to go ahead with a clean Power distribution on the frame... Was thinking sime like the Ecilop which has a main cyclic wire that picks up power from all esc's and deliver it to the battery... I was going to buy it but 75 USD is really a lot of money for a wire...

I think it's for putting ESC directly under the motor like DJI S800

actually we cut the wires and soldered connectors on, the connector can be linked reversed to change motor rotation direction easily,
yes, we did mean to put the ESC under the propeller for enough cooling.
thanks
Fu

No the idea was to have a wire going around the square main frame and possibly have connections so that the ESc's can connect onto it... Something Similar to what Aleksey did with his Ecilop. This will take the space on the bottom side which is basically useless for mounting things not to mention maybe inside CF tubes

By the way are those black extensions of the landing gear adjustable just in case they get within the field of view of the camera? If they are hats off

well, seems a retracting landing gear mod is a good idea?
normally you don't see the landing skid in the video.
you can do modification on the landing skid if necessary too.

Retract i don't think so unless you plan on a mod for a 3 axis gimbal on the frame... However having adjustable length of the legs on the bottom would be nice idea. But let's see if it is needed first.. I am pretty sure gopro will be affected since it has a wide field of view but i am not gonna use one so personally I am not worrying.

Something like this would be great, they called that "Retractable Landing Gear"...

Self-made ​​s800 retractable landing gear.

Yes i am aware of this and it isn't really rocket science for diy... Just 2 servos that will lift the gear up... Glyder600 can accomodate this mod very easy.... But why? This only helps if you have a 3axis mount and a camera operator and as far as i am aware it will be hard to have a functional stadi 3 axis gimbal...

and FOXTECH never ignores others invention.



I don't like to talk about other's product, but think twice to use a cheap frame to carry very expensive cameras.
even ABLomas argues in the mini 650 thread about the material they used , looks like carbon, but it's fiber glass.....
and the MR 's credit is not very good in China,
when you crash, you have to wait 1 month or more for spare parts.
so much for now

i like figuring out if people are lying (or deliver misinformation)


here's the mail from Ecilop team
