Modded Eachine Tilt 180 Racer Runcam 2 Tactic Servo/Aluminum Mount (2 min 31 sec)

Someone scammed me here on RCGroups and sold me a broken Eachine Tilt 180 Racer Quadcopter. Instead of sending it back, I decided to fix it up. A motor mount was broke and the servo that's used for tilting the arms were stripped. All parts are almost impossible to find, due to the quad being discontinued....

1)Fabricated the motor mount out of 1/4 inch aluminum from home depot($6) Its a little thicker than the others, but flies perfect and dissipates the heat better from the motor.
2) Bought a new Tactic Servo from a local hobby shop ($17) Had to dremmel out the servo opening a little to fit the new one

Took off the cheap flimsy canopy and mounted a Runcam 2 fitted inside an old cut up bike tube to reduce jello effect. This tilt rotor flies like a jet plane! Super fast and in my opinion is a little easier to fly than a traditional fixed arm quadcopter. Takes a few minutes to get used to coming from a regular quad. Doesnt seem to turn on a dime, but will mess around with the PID's in Cleanflight.

You have to download and use Cleanfligh verision 1.1 to hook up this quad to the PC. Currently has cleanflight 1.13 flashed.

Many broken Eachine Tilt 180 Racers have been listed on ebay due to the same problems with nobody taking the time to try and fix. Everybody cries about how they cant find parts / no customer service. The 2 problems above are the most common problem with this quad, and probably why it is discontinued. If you can find some broken Eachine Tilt 180 Racers, and fix/mod yourself, you will have a sweet little Tilt Rotor! I will fly in a local field soon and post some faster speed tests!

Decided to ressurrect my old battered FPV Raptor...Just finished the FPV Twin Raptor Build. Got sick and tired of the stock motor mount, and always hacking it to use different size motors, and trying to get the best thrust angle. It now flys like a dream! Super smooth flight characteristics.No more "dive of death" at launch. It floats like a butterfly, stings like a raptor

Anyone with a brain(and knows how to solder the esc's together) should be able to build this mod for many types of gliders/large wing planes. The longest part of the build was waiting for the 24 hour epoxy to harden.

Materials Used:
Any type of epoxy, but 24 hour epoxys are best ($5-$20)
Small board/hobby plaque from wal-mart for square mounts (.97 cents)
Jenga wood blocks used to screw square mounts to and epoxy to wings ($6)
2 Turnigy TY-P1 25Amp ESC's ($20)
Turnigy D2836/8 1100KV Brushless Outrunner Motor X2 ($22)
Master Airscrew 8x5 3 blade (counter rotating) X2($14)

Cracked the body of my Turnigy Trailblazer XT on my very first bashing.....Decided to reinforce the body by using packing/fiber tape on the inside and Plasti Dipped the entire outside. In my opinion, it looks way better than the stock blue plastic.A tough look. No more scratches or cracked body.
