LDARC 450x Brushed round two ..


LDARC 450x after rebuild trim flights (6 min 57 sec)


It's round two :

After doing a rebuild on the brushed 450x ...

FS2A micro Rx with inbuilt 5A brushed ESC
8520 motor
1.9g servos ( I think )
Nanotech 260 1s



It flies ...
At first it hunted the ground ..
So I made a larger trim change after many small changes and then it hunted the sky a little .
Ailerons were a little soft - add more rates .
It's very close to where I want it , the rolls were a little slow .
It might tolerate a still larger battery (?) , but it was very decent . ( Just needs to roll a little faster )

Well done. Still space to improve. I am curios about wich camera you use to make your videos: really not bad at all.

sorry for delay : I have been busy with the kitchen forniture change. Maybe there are still some around, I'll check. How and where do you fix it to shoot ? Seems on a hat.

I have an elastic headband mount , I think you can buy them on Ebay for a few dollars .
You can see the camera gets a little floppy at times if I move too much .
Might be time to maybe upgrade to something less floppy .

I did find following items :

https://it.aliexpress.com/item/32829602142.html

I am just waiting to now if it is possible to change lens because with the one given you can't see very far ( maybe 6 or 8 or 12 mm )

What ever cam you chose (?) , make sure you check out some video samples on youtube . ( as many as you can )

Cams that are really cheap , often turn out to be substandard MJPEG video cams .

Some cams have a zoom function !

Check youtube for sample video ..
Generally I go by the $50 rule , decent cams dont cost less than $50 ..
The $50 to $100 price range is where you should be looking , and look at name brands .
Once you find a cam at a price you like with the features you like , check out at least half a dozen reviews / sample video .
If you like what you see and you have minimised the risk of being fooled by Fake claims .
You put your money down .
