Wires inside arms or outside?


One more questions about frames

Do you prefer put wires from motor to ESC inside
arms or wires can be outside?

Wire hidden inside profiles looks nice, but in case
of impact will be source of additional work...
I prefer wires outside - mounted using tape.

And you?

Hope you guys are not gonna start an endless discussion as for energy, power, gravity, flight time, the Universe and Everything (DA)...
If so, why don't you open your own "formulas" faq thread

the point being NOT to impact or crash, I always prefer clean designs.
Then, my point of view is that most frames are designed for + mode but used for AVP or FPV.
In this case, + is wrong, it should be X mode with a clear POV between the arms.
I will send you more feeedback about the frame as soon as I finally receive the motors!

fwiw,
Bob

OK. I hope you get your your stuff quicker than I am these days.

With your shopping cart:
The DT 750 motors are quite efficient and good for the job IMHO.
I would choose the turnigy plush ESCs every time.
I am not a fan of triblade props but I have seen other people use them with no complaints. My preference here is 10x4.7 apc, they cost more but last longer.

Hope this helps you.
Cheers

kapteinkuk,

I was checking your video for the camera pan/tilt software.
You've placed the tilt gyro on the camera mount itself, was that for any specific reason?
The camera mount is statically attached to the main frame, wouldn't the main board gyros signal be enough or was it to
filter some vibrations?


I'd like to play around with this, and my ideas was to re-use the signals from the gyro sensors already on the copter board to probably feed a second board that will take care of the camera stabilization. Mainly because it needs further inputs for the camera movement itself.

Not sure if more are working on this as well, it would be great to share some ideas.
And end up having a really smooth camera system.

I second Don on all he says here, appart from the props.
I would use APC1238 with the DT750, it's a much more efficient combo.
With the APC1047, I would go for KD20-22L or KD20-20L, cheap and very well proven motors on such platforms.

Hello again all

So i finaly got one pcb finished, and the propellers from www.himodel.com has arrived

Anyone tried the GWS 3 blade propellers? Im not shure if it is the right choice but they see okay to me, realy flexy and light! will try to balance them and se if it will do the job

The Jakub pcb board was realy good to work on, thanx Jakub! looks realy good!

That.s also true Bob - I only use 20-22 (hence 1047)

@Le_Duke
As Bob says regarding flight times: just do the math...(Another Bob Quote)
It is actually a very reliable calculation.

So the Gents in the German Mk site who are claiming 30 minutes or the hexa and an hour for the octo are doing fuzzy math...or is it funny math?

well, that's a good point Jim, but I don't think it is because of "funny logic"
I've always seen some of the figures (and motorisation combos claimed to be the best) found on some multirotors thread as obvious desinformation maneuver.
There is a growing market in AVP business, and everything good enough to confuse potential concurence and gain time seems to be the reason for it.
So imho, best is you guys run tests and do the math for yourselves and you'll see that getting 30 minutes flight time with AVP machines is a difficult task, and close to impossible if you want to lift a dslr or similar weight for such LONG time.

fwiw,
Bob

I've flown my easystar FPV with a cheapie hk 2.4 system that never had an issue. I did have the vtx on the tail and the plane rx in the nose though. This time around I'm using a spektrum dsm 2. Hoping for the same results

I had a cheapie ESky 2.4GHz spectrum radio on my heli and turning on a 200mW 900MHz Vtx shortened the ground range from 550ft down to 60ft. DPCAV carries a 900Mhz low pass filter that may help but I haven't tried one.
