Awesome 3d printed parts design!

Are you using TPU for the parts?

Callisto   Aug 17, 2019 

So far Ive just used PLA, but have been thinking of getting TPU for a few weeks now. Just have to design some new extruder parts first.

Also try running the lipo toilet tank I prefer it and you may really like it.

Will do, saw that from Wild Willie's YouTube a while back.

Where did you get those mounts? Also how does the frame stand up to crashes or gyro noise

Callisto   Aug 08, 2019 

I got a 3d printer in march and learned fusion 360 as fast as I could. designed all the mounts and printed them. No crash yet only had the chance to fly it twice so far. The previous v3 frame cracked at the motor mount but this one has a little more material between the edge of the arm and the motor screw hole (so hopefully it's better, and I used some washers with the motor screws so they don't pull through the carbon). There was quite a bit of noise at first with the 4in1 esc, but 2 capacitors and a 12v reg for the vtx and its all gone.

Hey atleast if youre doing a backward manuever, you can switch to that belly cam and see the horizon instead of the sky right? this article legit caught my eye hahaha

It's been a little disorienting switching cameras maybe because when switching camera the video rolls one frame, so I only really switch when I get up pretty high. I'd crash if I did that for sure. My other quad had a servo to move the camera up and down but this build there's really no room for it.

how do you have the two cameras wired to the vtx? a mechanical switch with a servo or something better?

Callisto   Aug 07, 2019 

Lumenier F7 fc has 2 camera inputs that you can assign to a switch, and you can switch the vtx on and off as well. Just had to add acapacitor and a 12v regulator for the vtx, to clean up the noise.

It could film some 3D clips without those annoying upside down camera feed!

Belly cam is neat!

Great build, never thought to use dual cams like that... what do you intend the ventral cam to do?

Callisto   Jul 31, 2019 

Not sure, just for being able to look down while flying slowly, easier landing but mostly just for fun and there was a cutout in the frame already. Also when camera 2 activates it automatically switches it into angle mode so I don't get thrown off and crash. Thought that was a good idea.

This guide will walk you through the process of building your first FPV quad. The goal with this design was to build a low-cost, lightweight quad, yet powerful enough to safely carry a GoPro in close proximity areas. I chose these parts to minimize the amount of soldering at no cost to the quality. A typical build requires around 30 solders while this only needs 25. It's not a huge difference, but..

In late 2019 DJI made inroads into the FPV scene with their remarkable low-latency digital system. It gave us a 720p video feed with latency on-par with the status quo, analog video. Traditionally we've used analog video systems for low-latency video, but the video quality is far from ideal. It's a trade-off we've been willing to accept for the control. Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..
