Grayskull 7'' Cruiser

This is my take on a 7'' GPS Cruiser. I had intitially planed to use a Futaba receiver ( more range ) but I couldn't fit it cleanly on the narrow rear end. The XM Plus will have to do for now untill I look into crossfire system.

I made a custom mount for the GPS tower using an old carbon fiber motor mount. I've used this mount before and it has worked great and doesn't look half bad either. Anyway I hope y'all like my interpretation of a 7 inch cruiser.

How did you wire gps on the mateksys? Any diagram? Nice quad...

UnderDawg   Aug 29, 2018 

Using the Mateck FC it wasn't that hard, everything is very well labeled. The GPS on the other hand isn't color coded and didn't come with a diagram. I think I got the pinout off a JJRotoGeek video.

Awesome looking build! Quick question, this may be a dumb question, but how did you get that design on your frame? PlastiDip? Vinyl?

Hi there, wondering where you got those red washers? are they just a paper type washer or plastic? thanks for your time, nice build

UnderDawg   Jun 13, 2018 

Hey Offset, I listed the insulating washers in Misc Parts for you.

Yes, default for now. Not really. Just some hovering in the back yard trying out position hold.

oTOADIEo   Jun 04, 2018 

Was it able to hold position well?

UnderDawg   Jun 04, 2018 

I think she did fairly well. Just as well as any of my Naza units have in the same location

how does it fly??? no oscillations???

UnderDawg   Jun 02, 2018 

Other than a backyard hover I haven't had a chance to do any real testing. I'll be out of town most of the weekend looking at jobs, so maybe late Sunday I can get her up in the air.

The Aomway Commander V2s are the 2018 followup to the successful Aomway Commander V1 FPV headset. Unlike their predecessor, which targeted the FatShark Dominator V3s, the Commander V2s have set their sights higher toward the FatShark HD3s. Instead of 16:9 displays with a 32 degree field of view (FOV) the V2s now sport 4:3 displays with an impressive 45 degree FOV. And unlike the HD3s, these switch..

The FB 009 is a lightweight and compact budget FPV headset. When I first saw this I thought it might be worth a try. I'm never quite sure which headset to recommend at this price point, so let's see how this stands up. Most notably it includes a USB chargeable 1S 1200mah battery which is a decent capacity for an internal battery. The headset is compact and features a 3" 480x320 16:9 display. The..
