Skippy 3D

The Skyzone STX202 FPV transmitter is the fragile part of this build. Already trashed one so now trying to find a good location to put it.

Note: The 3D is a reference to the stereoscopic video and not to the 3D flight mode

Current troubles/puzzles/issues/tasks

  1. Remove the totally unnecessary SKYDC5V Regulator from this build
  2. Find a good location for the VTX (probably in a printed case)
  3. Remove the PDB to see if the 5v from the FC is enough to power the VTX and radio

Previous troubles/puzzles/issues

  1. Get OSD to work (on one eye). Failed! Video for that eye was dimmed and didn't show OSD info. After I blew a resistor or capacitor I gave up on this endeavour. Should have made pictures of my setup though.. I might have made a stupid mistake and reviewing it might reveal it.
  2. Get telemitry to work. Kinda failed.. Had it hooked up right from the start. Just never told my Taranis to detect telemitry.

What's it like flying in 3D mode?

koenmulder   8 days ago 

I like it but I haven't really flown in 2D yet so it is hard to compare. My next/current build has a normal camera so in about a week I'll be able to tell what is better.

Note: I'm not flying in 3D mode. My motors do not reverse. I'd say I fly with stereoscopic video

What?! - A fragile quad that sends two video feeds
How? - A combination of magic, science and hot glue
Why?! - Good camera reviews, novelty and my adventures character

Save 7% on the T8SG Plus with the coupon code "Toyho" at Banggood This is a surprising little transmitter. The Jumper T8SG Plus is a compact, multi-protocol radio tailored for FPV pilots. While it's not the cheapest transmitter on the market, it's certainly a huge leap forward in terms of quality and flexibility. The multi-protocol module lets you fly most toy quads as well as hobby-grade FPV..

The Diatone GT-M200 is a racing/freestyle frame that features an aluminum alloy cage and 6mm replaceable arms. The goal of this build was to balance price, features and quality. It features an F4 flight controller which allows an 8khz gyro update and PID loop frequency and the latest filters. Additionally with BLHeli_32 it supports the DSHOT1200 motor protocol and custom startup music. This also..
