Here is my last build...and perhaps the coolest one!!! Look at that heatsink !!!! Gorgeous no?
It was quite challenging to put all this stuff in so tiny space! I had to enhance the cage with countersunk washer. All fit perfectly now....except for the capacitor: no place for it. So i try to fly without. If th noise is too high..i will put this capacitor somewhere.

Looks great!! what kv did you go with on the motors? I'm using the same Led's and the 2300kv Sunny's on the build I'm finishing up now.

Just the motors and the CLracing LED's... I've always been a fan of SunnySky motors

ok so i made the maiden....this quad is my best one!! it flies so smoothly with BF 3.5.... the PID tuning was quit simple (increase some D): no propwash...very locked! Video is coming..... But, the KV of the motors are a bit too low! I crashed 2 times after diving because of the lack of power . It's a bit difficult for me because all my other quad are 2650-2700 KV.... so perhaps it's my fault : I put throttle too late I think. I will try in 5S ;-)

I'll be taking my SS 2300kv's out first thing in the morning... I'll let you know how they do on 6'' props.

I love the heat sink! It looks like it's got red hair. Great work as usual, but you might want to work on your soldering ;) You didn't get enough solder on those pads.

i too was about to say something about that. i think removing thr plastic and the AKK sticker will be more effective in cooling the vtx chip.

The heatsink is more for the look than for heat dissipation !!!! No heat problem with AKK even at 1200 mW..... and all my quads use the VTX_AUTOLOWER function in CLI: the power is decrease to 25 mW when the quad is disarmed

I didn't know about that feature, very handy!

Available for $361 with coupon toyho at Banggood 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..

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..
