So much fun!

Two small bits were soldered on. cam and lead to use Tattu's style of connector, which i chopped from 6 battery charge harness. I had to reattach the wire to the actual connector bc of the odd angle that was required to nicely mount the battery with minimal wire. i used some shrink wrap to keep the connector a bit more protected.

Made some careful cuts to the battery tray to easily fit Tattu 220mah 1s 45c lipo's. I might eventually add a rubber band, but everything is pretty snug without one. i can still use the stock battery - original connector is still on the board, and the battery can still fit in the battery tray of course.

This weekend i strapped my DODO quad ontop of my SCX10 and tried out a bit of FPV crawling in my backyard and house!!! SUPER DOPE! i think it was totally awesome! The temp setup was top heavy of course, but it was quick and easy. My kids got to try it out too and totally loved it! i had to cut them off at one point, because they took my quad-stacked-scx10 and basicly dropped it off their 6foot tall rockwall... :/ Luckily nothing was damaged.

The weather was super warm this weekend, i also got to run through my batteries with my dodo and naze builds, my wife and kids went with me and everything! Prior, i did a bit of PID tuning finally! I had not really messed with any of that on these so far... My naze needs more tuning for sure. it only got one flight. I need to adjust it roll quite a bit. It definately is underpowered compared to my dodo. I have 3 x 3s 1300mah turnigy nano 45-90c lipos, and a few lower c 1000mah 3s lipo's... soon i will be getting into 4s! im going to shoot for 1000mah 4s higher c lipo's for the naze builds 2300kv 1806 DYS motors. according to DYS documentation, i should get a lot more thrust on 4s, and 1000mah should hopefully keep it light and more nimble. i thought about 850mah 4s, but im not sure if thats where i want to go. If performance is still too balloony, i will be upgrading my 1806 to something more like my racerstar 2205 2300kv's... i like them. I tuned my DODO with more pitch and can now do quick snappy flips! before...Continue Reading
