Halloa people

A week back I ordered up the stuff though, so it's start to get cracking on this build! :P

I'll try to shoot detailed 'how to' video's on all the electronics bits.. Those video's will follow shortly.. for now.. here is an overview of the Anakin club racer frame

Halloa people

now that I know my Anakin flies at Least reasonably well, it's time to add some FPV gear
In this video I will be testing the Runcam Eagle off-frame, so that there is no chance of any interference.. This way, if I Will see interference in-flight, I'll know it's not caused by the FPV gear..

Halloa people

It's been a while sinds I did a video on this project (winter happened over here :P).. in the last flight-video, the quad had some kind of weird oscilation..
Let's see if I have been able to get rid of that

Halloa people

this next video isn't about the Anakin (Club Racer) I build up in this series.. It's the RTF version with tubular arms, but I figured creating a seperate topic for it would be a bit to much of a good thing

So.. the 'other' Anakin then.. It comes with a CC3D flight controller, with OpenPilot firmware on it.. I had a problem with this quad having it drop out of the sky for no aparant reason
In this video I'm gonna try & solve that..
Allso a good 'how to' on upgrading CC3D flight controllers to Betaflight by the way...
