Quadcopters


im hooked on quadcopters... FPV race styled ones... im not very good yet, but im sooooo hooked. I also recently gave up facebook, which has coincided with my complete absorption into fpv racer styled quads... By styled, i mean racer frames and components, but im shooting for maybe novice class motors, or less amp draw. 20a and below. Mainly for price. Also for longer flight times, lighter gram weight, usage of 1000-1300mah 3s lipos....

I lost my diatone color 250 frame a few months ago, it was fun, but i didnt have FPV yet at the time. It flew away, it didnt love me...

I then picked up some affordable bits and built a new quadcopter and quit facebook.... i got a Quanum cyclops fpv monogogle. it was on sale for $40.. it works pretty well, but it clunky to lug around when i finding my downed quad.... it works. I am MUCH better at flying fpv than line of sight!

Ok after a few weeks on my hobbyking 250 plastic frame with 1704 1900kv multistars, i broke off an arm. I had ordered a Darkside ARC200 on sale for $20 i think, and was holding off on that, but i needed a frame and mounted my hk250 stuff onto it... i thought i might be beyong my skill level to fly, but its not. It definately is tighter to put everything on it, but i got it setup well imo for now.

One of my motors has gotten bent up twice... so i ve been mulling over new motors for it... im going with dys 1806 2300kv's in fancy pants red. i also just received some banggood 2205 2300kv's but im gonna hold off on them for a minute... i like low amp draw and the 1704 1900kv's have and are serving me well enough for now.

I also just ordered another carbon chassis... i was gonna get another arc200, but i decided to try out the Kim195 chassis. it has a similar build setup, but it has a better top plate, that id like to have... it was a little more than an arc200... i also considered a lifetime warranty frame, which i think i might get for my next rig...

im hooked
