New project on the go...

I want to test out FPV and have collected some parts to use for testing.
VTX- Boscam TS351
VRX- Boscam RC305
Camera- GoPro3 silver for now
Screen- 3,5" from ebay
Ground station- an old tripod I had lying around, a bit modified

I also made some custom cables and connectors to tie it all together.

Testing will be done on my F450 made for aerial photo.

Some pics attached

New build started.

Saw the Flite test bat bone frame on youtube and really liked it. On the FT forum I found a guy that had made up some drawings for a lookalike frame and I decided to have a go on it.

Link to tread with drawings for the frame here:

My son also wanted a new flyer so we decided to make two of them. Mine is scaled up to 125% on print out, his is the original scale. We both wanted to build it as a V-tail like David Windestål did in this video.

Started on planning my retracted landing gear. Think I will be using this with my custom build with CF booms.
I got a ATG landing gear set of ebay and will try to mount some retracts of HK on those.

These are the retracts

And this is the landing gear

Have a HJ MWC X-Mode Alien Quadcopter frame I want to put some CF booms on. Browsing HK site I found the Talon V2 quad frame that had some boom mounts that I ordered together with some booms. Also got some motor mounts for a Turnigy H.A.L.
Parts came in today and I could mock it up to see how it would look. Still need some stand offs and other hard ware to mount it together. Will have to decide on motors and ESCs too, maybe trying a Q-brain or something together with some Sunnysky 800KV.

Hi all
I am a guy from Norway that got in the RC world about 8 montht ago. Started with some WLToys V911 and V929.
Has now built a DJI F330 with a KK2 FC on it. The maiden was yesterday and it flew quite well with stock settings on the board. The only problem was that two of the motors didn`t run as smooth as the others so it sometimes tipped on takeoffs. I have to return them to my vendor to get some new ones.

I also have a HJ 450 frame with some hardware to go. Has also bought a HJ MWC X-Mode Alien Multicopter Quadcopter Frame Kit of ebay. Thinking of this to carry a GoPro

Pics of the build:...Continue Reading
