Works OK
i don't know if i like that idea or not. I suppose if i can't figure anything else out i might try that. Do the brushless motors come apart easy?

I agree with that, but also remember to oil your bearing after doing that. You should be oiling you motor bearings from time to time anyway.

I have problem what to use for lubing

Have this two on hand, but:

Vaseline oil - collects dirt&dust as hell
Silicone oil spray - it's diaelectric and kills motors ...

I'm pretty sure you can use light weight motor oil on these too. I use good old 3-IN-ONE. I saw on one of the motor websites that you can use SAE 20-50 engine oil, I think.

I had a really nice bottle of lube made specially for motors and recently when packing propellers, the bottle fell into the box as I was packing the props. Buyer sent me a thank you note for the "free" motor lube. Props were worth 5 bucks, the lube was worth 25$. Shipping this back from the US wasn't worth it so he got to keep the lube.

Yes, Shafter, I also use water pressure to clean dirt out of motors. Then I lube the bearings as mentioned by Bryan.

Best,
Chris

So you guys just run the motor under water in the sink. Then let it dry and drop some oil inside.

Hi chris
I decided I want the 355 cnc as we discussed and in addition an M frame only with 399 mm arms or whatever is the longest whithout the shipping charge . Also an extra set of cnc landing gears . So right now I owe you about 15$. depending on how the shipping goes tomorrow. I will let you know.

DIY quads

I decided to share some photos of my DIY Armattan 356 quad. I changed up the layout of my ESCs and I changed the ESC wiring to the motors as well. Have a look.

I may try some Heli landing gear to the next one to provide more protection to the battery during those not so nice landings.

All I can say is wow. I got settings for aerobatics and this thing is heaven!

What a fun quad to tear up the skies with! Flew in 20 mph winds and had a blast!!!!! Too bad they don't make auto rotation and reversed pitch blades!

Oh by the way, when you rip the skies, watch your time! Lmao gonna need new gear kits! Had so much fun I forgot about my battery!

Kinda important, lol

Hey Jim:

Did you solder a JST to the PDB to power the LEDs?

That looks awesome Jim. I like the way that looks with the esc's on top of the arm. I noticed Warthox does that also and had been thinking about doing a build like that myself.

A set of Chris's new landing skids would look good on them too!

Excellent build and pictures. Thanks for showing them to us.

Actually I soldered them directly to the PDB.

Thanks! I think the ESCs are a little more protected on top but it doesn't look as clean. I'm going to fly it this way for a while and see which why I like best before I build the second DIY kit.
