Excellent work !!

Could you give us the total weight and the average time of flight ?
What is the maximum weight that can fly your quad ?

Thanks guys. Total weight without battery is 37.5 grams. Add 8-9 grams for battery depending on which one is used. Average flight time has been around 5 1/2 minutes, with the stock V202 25C batteries.

Thanks Anthony.

Well the Mini Pet was getting jealous that so much DNA was coming from the H36 and V202 so I told him "Look, we need those guys for performance", and Mr. MP says "Well I look better!", so I conceded he was right and injected more MP DNA from the lighting department:







Bill, we really need to do the speed test on this one because it's definately faster than 25mph.

I flew this quad today at our Bi-Weekly fly-in.

I am so incredibly impressed. It just flies so exactly right. And it's fast fast fast.

I think the UFO canopy is an important choice for this. It seems to really promote race track speeds while also preventing the descending wobble of death, and it enhances cornering. I can't praise the flight characteristics of this quad enough.

I took this up probably 60 feet, cranked it over while cutting the throttle, and actually got a full on tumble going on, then I nailed the throttle, it came around and totally ripped it under complete control.

This sucker rocks. I want one, and I want it now!!! LOL

Massive, thanks for inviting me out to the fly-in today, it was great meeting everyone there. This Frankenstein-quad needs to go into production! It flys so smooth and handles the wind with no effort. I agree with Cyberbill, I want one now!!!!

Glad to have you with us Mark. We're gonna make you fly more next time though. You don't have to worry about breaking the V202 like the X4.......it's bullet-proof.

Does the U816 make a good platform for a frankenquad do you think? The local hobby store has one they are trying to get rid of. I would like to get a V202 but the price seems Ok on the U816.

It's great, believe me. I like the arms+motors ready combo. It's pretty crash resistant too. Just add some frame and board and you are ready to go.

It doesn't make it a good platform for mass production due to the different PCB mounting design, but for one-offs I'm sure it's suitable.

Crossing the v202 brain with the H36 body is cool... however, i'm still wondering if the v202 brain would power a larger quad body like from the (silly cheep and crash resistant) Syma X1

Really nice work on the frankenquad MO, and the LEDs are a nice touch too. (production item?) I'm very tempted to buy 'n fly the V202/Franken and see what all the hype is aboot!
After seeing the "toss test" It looks like the V202 has a very smart/strong self leveling algorithm like the fw 1.4+ KK2 board
A fw1.4 KK2 quad with "self leveling on" can be thrown up into-the-air side-ways like the V202 and be magically throttled into a level hover too. Can also tumble from the sky and be throttled back into a right-side-up recovery... magical stuff ... so I'm quite suprised the WL engineers implemented that code into the V202 already!
hmmm I'm intrigued... i think i'd like you to build me one too.

Hey Vpsporb, Bill was nice enough to send me a source for cheap LEDs so we'll see if we can at least offer the LEDs and instructions. I like the concept of mounting LEDs in the canopy. They may not be as visible as those mounted at the ends of booms, but it does allow you to swap the canopy for one without LEDs if you need the extra weight savings or want to exchange the LED canopy to other quads with power ports.

What's scary is that the V202 programming has some improvements that can still be made.

Our Frankenparts are scheduled to be here next week so we'll see if they are viable for production.
