Random Projects, Star Wars & other shenanigans

Built this Star Wars™ K-2SO speeder bike some time ago, never flown due to not being the best pilot...yet / still learning. Hopefully later this year i have another 250 size quad for practising & fondling with iNav.

Props are for show. No idea how they will perform*. I also have clear 5030 props. Might add LED's later. Top front panel is held with magnets for easy access to battery bay & receiver. I've used two top plates from zmr250's with 10mm standoffs in between as the midsection. The flightcontroller and esc are in between those two plates. Arms are standard zmr250.

K-2SO - Bandai
4X T-Motor F40 F40III 2306 2400KV
Betaflight - SPRacing F3
2x ZMR250 various parts + plasticard
Afro 4x1 ESC - 20A I think
Balances perfectly with nanotech 3S1500mah.

*6-bladed props are VERY twitchy. Quad is all over the place. Second Video is with 5030 and the Speeder Bike reacts way friendlier.

A small update.

I've added some dials and buttons and... wiring a small FPV camera on K-2SO's shoulder.

For my upcoming DIY FPV winterproject I'm slowly acquiring bits & pieces. How it is going to turn out is still a mystery to me too, but I do know I'm going to use this 1/12 Bandai Death Trooper as a pilot which arrived today by mail.
