Slow progress with my vtol build. I had a few issues with my printer that held me up. Also I bought some 12mm carbon tube that was not quite 12mm OD which was annoying so I had to go back and modify all my designs. I picked up some second hand sunnysky motors and now have 2 arms built up. The printer will be active over the next few days. Ive got 5 bigger prints to run plus some markq goodies too.

Cold flights


I was out last Friday to get a cold flight in - wanted to test the electronics at <20F.

All hardware worked as planned, but HD camera (Foxeer Legend 1) had 1/8th its battery life.

Enjoy the video

Hey guys, having an issue setting up my mini talon with the Maytek f405 wing board. I have my vtail and ailerons working but my throttle isn’t responding in the servo output section. I have done a radio calibration and everything is fine there. I have setup under servo 1 throttle 70 and still am not being able to see the throttle move under the servo output section. Any help would be great

It sounds like you're using Arduplane. If so, the motor is not enabled until you arm.

What is your radio input setting. TAER? https://ardupilot.org/plane/docs/servo-functions.html

If you live in US its not worth it to buy gopro second hand to fly fpv, best buy sells insurance for $60 extra, bring them back the pieces and they'll replace it,. You buy a new insurance than you can crash it again and have another GoPro for $60 or so. Everytime you crash it badly...
4th gopro .... i don't abuse it but that's action camera which is meant to get into tight places and best buy sells insurance on this product... So..
But you gotta bring them the pieces...

That's a steady image there ZB. It looks much more natural compared to stabilized gimbal footage.

My VTOL build is going very slow, more dramas with the 3D printer

Just to be clear, this is the E6000 glue you guys are using to build the Mini Talon?
