This original creation of mine has been evolving from DJI style arms to Aluminum frame and now this CARBON FIBER Version using a TALON Hex platform and the best of all, this is tuned for ACRO FLYING with Horizon Mode alike fw by RC911 R4.
Using affordable electronics from HK and all the fun building it and flying it is what this hobby is all about.

Here are some close-up pix & maiden video....

Here is my version of a CHINOOK SCALE ALUM. BODY with a MINI KK2.1.5 FC. It's a challenge to build and servo placement was a little tricky but,possible and I thinks it's working.

Here are some closed-up pix and tuning video.

Just having fun with this interesting project with NO application in mind. Got inspired by You Tube's MClay, a really smart builder .
This is my version which is not even close to near perfect but,it shows that it's possible and we can save lots of $$$$ if we can make this project in perfect smooth spinning motion.
Lower motor stops early due to a drag for the bearings on the hub is mis-aligned .Needs precision drilling to obtain a perfect no drag action.

PURPOSE FOR THIS PROJECT:

TO PROVE IF THE KK2.0 / KK2.1 / KK2.1.5 SINGLECOPTER 1M-4S DEFAULT MOTOR LAY-OUT AND FIRMWARE IS TRUE AND DO FLY.

RESULT : SUCCESS

I jump on this project with ZERO KNOWLEDGE ON VTOL....so don't shoot me down.

I was thinking this is a simple project but, I am having issues and taking longer to set-up....LOL.

I am a newbie on this kind of platform and NOT SURE if this design of mine is capable of flying.

UPDATE:
It tries to hover but, the whole platform spins on the air and I HAVE NO CONTROL of it.

Any suggestions and tips are appreciated and welcome....Continue Reading

I was really having fun with this build that I can't help but build a second one....and it fly amazingly the second time around.

I like the look of open and expose electronics so no plan of making a body for this one too.

SPECS:

KK2.1 / RC911 -R4 FW
2X- TURNIGY D2830/11 1000KV MOTORS
2X- HK 20A SIMON K's ESC's
2X- TGY-225MG Metal GEARS Servos
2X-GF Nylon 8" Props
1X- HOMEMADE WOOD CHINOOK Frame

NOTE : BOTH build has the same specs and props is up to your liking but, I recommend 8" on the 1000kv motors.

Just another KK2.1 fun project to share.
The KK2 FC has been branded as a dirt cheap particular FC but,with it's capabilities ,it can give more fun compared to all those pricey fc's.The KK2 is designed for flying, from acro to project like this and if you are really up to it , custom mixes are like endless.

.....and this CO2X KK2.1 CHINOOK is born.

Building TRICOPTERS for some are really a challenge due to, you have to deal with servo and the annoying yaw system but, NO , YOU DON'T NEED A SERVO & YAW MECHANISM at all.
On this project , I have this platform on a tricopter configuration and I have eliminated the servo and the yaw system and created a custom KK2.1 mixes to fly like a Tricopter.
No more servo to strip on a crash and no more fixing of that annoying yaw system.

REVOLT

Not done yet with this platform. Really wanna dismantle this all the way but, ideas are popping and worth the try...and this is another one.

It's a VTAIL configuration with the NEXT STEP motor placement...looking like a SERVOLESS PENTA...

I can't come up with the exact multi-configuration,so I just gave it a name as usual on all my build.

This idea cross my mind when a friend mentioned 'bout a TWIN SERVO VTAIL , not exactly sure what's the advantage but,the idea sounds WILD & CRAZY .....
Using a BATBONE Platform to minimize the weight considering both servos on the front motors.
KK2.1 Fc has been CUSTOMIZED to make it function and fly as I wanted.

Calling it the....BLACKCHIPPI

Yes , I lied . I was gonna dismantle this boring frame for parts but, halfway I just remember 'bout this M CLAY'S design of a VTAIL with a twisted configuration that I find very interesting, he was flying with MULTIWII Pro on his platform....and decided to build my own version using a KK2.1 RC with RC911 FW.

....and I call it

CHIPPI PENTACOPTER

Just wanna share this last project on this platform before this unit goes to teardown and to the parts bin for the next project.

I'm not a fan of PENTACOPTERs that much but, I'm only wanted to fly and feel the way this configuration will perform up in the air.

....not bad at all and he is flying with the wind with no issue.

Well,as much as how I like TRICOPTERS , I feel that there is another way to make it more fun and interesting and this is what I come up with.

By adding another motor with bigger props by the center , it has created a new feel to it when flying ...and made it more interesting.

Another simple idea and cheap build using a KK2 FC and my Taranis X9D Tx.
This idea pop up from nowhere when I was building my scratchbuild version of the Flight Test 5 motors tricopter. It was a very simple transformation from their design...and why not this way , right ?
She is flying ok and the good thing , this is like a 2 in 1 flying platform.

....and the

TWIN PUSHER TRICOPTER

is BORN.

BOOMPROP TRI + KK2.1.5 PROJECT

This is not totally new to you guys,this system has been around for a while now.
Originally, the boomprop tri of IAN DAVIDSON (Inventor) was flying with APM and on this version of mine,I will be experimenting with the KK2.1.5 Fc.
Not sure of it will work perfectly but....until you try you will never know.

ANY SUGGESTIONS ARE APPRECIATED....Continue Reading
