My first Mikrokopter... V-Okto
hereīs my build log for my (clone) MK Oktokopter, sorry for my bad english... but i hope you enjoy it
First the the "alternativ" clone MK components arrived, works like a charm, firmware update and everything is fine
than i started to build the frame, square 10x10x1mm alu from the local hardware store
than i got two 200x200x1,5mm plywood pieces glued with epoxy on top and bottom.
than the motors arrived
prop adapters mounted
the i drilled holes in the alu and mounted the motors.
Next step.. electronics so i started with the ESC Power and I2C wiring loom
FC and PPM/RX encoder are rdy too !
than i soldered the escs to the motors... dont forget the shrink tube! :P
now its looking like that:
than i cleaned that mess (at least a bit..) with zip ties <3
decoupled FC mount
balanced props and mounted them ( see the one motor without? the motor has bad bearings... need a new one)
ESC + motor closeup
thats what it looks like now
hope you liked it video is comming !

i was testing today...and whhoops it was airborne ... with just 7 motors :P
the frist flight video is... hopefully 7 airmail days away :P
the transmitter ( hardware) IS GREAT... for that price... awesome.
BUT: the turingy firmware is not so good, for standart planes no problem, copter no problem, but if you want to do some more mixing its very complicated.
i changed my firmware to th9x and now its a great radio like the ones fo 600$
but there is another problem. i get i2c errors from the esc #1 just like 1-5 .. i think the long cable could be a reason, maybe i put another capacitor on the esc. got some spares.
