ARRIS M680-4S Carbon Fiber Fully Foldable Quadcopter RTF NAZA-M V2


This big quadcopter is specially designed for flyers who have higher requirement for flying time. After testing, the no-load flying time can reach to 36 minutes. What an amazing result. This must be the biggest improvement for quadcopters.

Maiden Voyage of this Quad


Does anyone else own this quad? I purchased mine one year ago and after being distracted by other projects finally had my maiden test flight today. It concerned me a little that it seems top heavy with the big battery on top but I haven't installed any gimbal or camera yet which I plan to do. I'm sure that will help.

It was butter smooth once I got it in the air. I look forward to doing a duration test soon without load to see how it measures up to the claim made above. I'm also considering the retractable legs.

I'll post some videos soon.

I already own an ARRIS 2000 gimbal which I've been very happy with but it is installed on another quad. Guess I have to get another one...

Cheers, Huck

Comparing Flight Time vs Manufacturer Claim Really??


I tested the flight time of my Arris 680 -4 quad today to see how it stood up to the manufacturer's claim of 36 minutes with no load. I have pictures of my set up and the 6 cell battery that I used. It's a fairly new battery and it was fully charged. I ran it down until the first cell got to 3.3 under load.

I had no additional electronics drawing power, other than an alarm set up on the battery to notify me when the first of 6 cells got down to 3.3 There was no gimbal and no camera on board. Just one heavy ass battery.

I wouldn't say my flying was aggressive but I didn't just hover either. Lots of out and backs and spins. I didn't think I would get to the 36 minutes that they claimed above but I was ready to be happy with 30.

Here is a picture of my stopwatch after the flight. I would probably subtract 40 seconds from this time to be more than safe because I started the watch just before launch and turned it off just after. That leaves me with a 43 minute flight. Wow!

I'll do another duration flight after getting a gimbal and camera mounted.
