Shendrones 3D Shrieker

Shendrones at it again with this 3" 3D Shrieker. Super fancy ninja star shaped carbon plate, with camera mount, tail, and motor arm guards 3D printed in TPU directly onto the frame. When I saw it I had to build one.

This frame does not normally carry a GoPro (evidence of this is Andy telling me he thought the pic was Photoshop.) But as soon as I finished the build, and test hovered, it was so light, that I had to design one to try out. She flies amazing on 5S and can definitely handle the weight of the 850mah RotorX pack, but really shines on the smaller 450mah.

Printed with Purple Ninjaflex, if I did it all again, I would use Semi-Flex or something a bit more rigid only because at spots I get a bit of jello in the FPV feed. I put a small foam block under the camera and it removed almost all of it. This jello does not translate to my GoPro mount, footage on that is extremely smooth and solid. So it seems like the FPV mount (printed from Ninjaflex) is just a bit too rubbery by itself.

All in all very pleased with this little ripper!

what do you mean printed ON the frame???wtf how, do you pause the build and place the carbon on it?

Check out Andy Shen's writeup on it. Just pause the printer at the appropriate height like 4mm, then insert the carbon, click resume.
I did hold it down with a pair of tweezers for the first layer or so, just to make sure the head could pass over unobstructed.

Maidened it a few months back


Made a few adjustments since this, and updated to Betaflight 3.5. Added a bit of a throttle boost because the GoPro adds a chunk of weight.

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..

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..
