Hi. This is my latest build and the most "complicated" I have done. Because ever components are so tiny !
I moded the frame and the components in Fusion360 and export it to 3dsmax to made a custom canopy that fit the runcam nano.
Then I printed it with my Anet A8 3D printer.
I tried to respect the design of the original canopy.

What type of supports did you use when printing? my canopys keep breaking when im taking off the line supports, and sometimes they won't come off at all. what style do you reccomend? are there any specific setting I should use? Im using cura.

15% infill for the filling and ~0,3mm on the Z distance

SkatingMakerFPV   Dec 11, 2018 

Thanks! 15% for support infill, or canopy infill and what type of supports are you using?

aquilafpv   Dec 12, 2018 

Ultimaker cura : 15% for support density, support pattern : Zig zag
Try to play with the Z distance (2,7 to 3,2mm)

Very nice build! Did you do the the 3d model of the bottom plate as well? I would love to print the frame.

I think I can extract it from 3dsmax

Amazing!! Really, really thank you!! I hope I will be able to keep the weight of the under 6g :):):) Thanks

What did you print the canopy in? do you think TPU would work better than PLA?

aquilafpv   Nov 18, 2018 

I printed it in PLA. much lighter I think and best choice to avoid vibration/jello in the camera

Thanks! and one last question-what are you doing to that antenna? did you cut it down and directly solder it to the vtx?

aquilafpv   Nov 20, 2018 

indeed !

im curious about how ur motors hold up, my seem to have developed some annoying vibrations after a few crashes. thinking about using airblade motors next, hopefully they are little more durable. i tuned my tinyshark for the gemfan hulkies and found my tune didnt work for those props. can u post ur pids?

Did you try soft mounting the motors? That helped alot of my micros a LOT. Its just a few dollars for 12 pads so you can use them on multiple quads. I had too do it on my g90 pro and my babyhawk r and it made a pretty big difference.

I don't put soft mount on my motors in general but I saw some vibrations on the TinyShark. I think I will try to add some. Thank you

if you find a better tune lmk. prop guards cut my flight time in half, but it may be because i had to retune and the pids are not as efficient. still trying to find the best pids

would 7800kv motors be decent on this setup?

aquilafpv   Jun 14, 2018 

1103 ? I think so =)

love the canopy design. My 2S tiny shark is one of my favorite quads!

The iFlight XL5 V3 is a fantastic freestyle frame for the price. It features chamfered edges on some very nice quality carbon fiber. My goal for this build was to use high quality components at a relatively low price. Not only that, but I managed to reduce the number of solder points to the bare minimum. I've never built such a plug-in-play quad! The flight controller has an integrated VTX and doesn't..

Update! Happymodel has released a new V2 Frame which uses a more durable plastic. The Happymodel Mobula7 is one of those rare treats to hit the micro scene. Countless models hit the market every month, but this one just happens to check all the boxes. It's a 2S brushless micro with a 75mm motor stance. It's slightly larger than the more traditional 65mm brushed micros, but it's still quite small...
