Typical Rooster Build, no need to bore you with build details. ;-)

Found some cool 3D printed parts on Thingiverse. Type "Armattan Rooster" in the search and you can find all kinds of cool prints that you wont find on ebay or Amazon. Link: https://www.thingiverse.com/search?q=armattan+rooster&dwh=525bdab939aba50

My 3D parts added, all flexible TPU material:

  • GoPro Session protective bumper frame designed for Rooster (No straps required)
  • Titanium cage skid plate. Surprisingly good tolerances.
  • Matek Buzzer holder for bottom frame lightening hole and front arm brace.
  • FrSky R-xsr Rx holder and rear arm brace
  • XT-60 and 1000uf capacitor holder
  • Arm end protectors
  • Rear Axii stubby and Rx antenna tube holder
  • Battery Balance connector to battery wire holder

Other parts:

How did you deal with the battery strap hitting the gyro on the kakute v2? Also does the tbs vtx overheat being on the bottom of the stack?

Its hard to see in the pics, I looped the strap back over the top of the center of the battery plate so theres no way for the strap to hit the soft mounted gyro. I have four drones with the Kakute and finding a way to make sure the battery strap dosn't touch it is a pain. BUT I love this controller!

The TBS VTX has not been an issue with overtheating. I run them at 200mw. I added spacers between the mounted TBS tx and the 4-in-1 to provide more airflow. Also, I mounted the TBS board directly flush to the frame contacting the carbon fiber. TBS said it would aid in cooling.

When attaching the capacitor to the battery line like that, is that a printed part, if so do you have a link?

It works great! Here is the link! I paid $19 for 11 pieces made from flexible TPU.

Haha, I know but after one dead session and second one with a case cracked, I wanted overkill protection!  Those damn trees!

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. It's ducted, so it's safe to fly most anywhere and it's got the power and control..

The Flysky Nirvana is a very cool radio. It has two enlongated grips, a color touchscreen, module support, rear switches, an internal charger, and a retractable antenna. When you see it you either hate it or love it. From the tall display to the rainbow anodized look it's sure to catch some attention. Features Gamepad style design Hall sensor gimbals Internal AFHDS 2A transmitter 3.5in 320x480 color..
