New Quad Frame - TEST FLIGHT Video / pics


HI
As my Gaui Terminator Frame Is too "Gentle"
I had many Frame fails with it .
So i got from a good friend a New Quad frame
50 cm From motor/ motor.
Still i need to get Motors screws.
Need to fix the wires on frame - shrincs
Need to fix scids on sides LEGS as front leg- into Camera frame
Mount night lights/ strob.
Test flight
Check / fix Camera mount / anti vibration.
Fix mount LIPO cam Warning.
IT Will fly in two days!

Looking good Guy. That will definitely hold up to a little more abuse. It will be interesting to see how isolated your cam is from vibes. Aluminum arms transmit vibes more than wood and other material. I have an aluminum tricopter and it took awhile but I did finally get 95% of the vibes cleaned up on my video. Don't be surprised if you have to do a little tweaking to get some clean video....the tweaking is almost as much fun as flying.

That's a nice frame Guy. Sorry to hear about the problems with the Gaui.

Don't you fancy making a Tri or T copter ? Simple frame and easily replaced if damaged.
