Hi

I want to show you my latest build. It's for fast longrange and mountain surfing. Dry weight is 832g. It's not the lightest but I think it's okay with the brotherhobby 2812 1115KV avenger V3. With this quad I want to break my personal record of 8km. Goal is the new dji fpv limit of about 12km. But normally I will use it for mountain and cloud surfing. Every component is covered with silicone conformal coating. So it's no problem to fly it under wet conditions.

    The aeronauts Propeller explode during a punchout. Quad fell about 8m from the sky. Weak spot is the alu cam mount. It's bent and my 6S 4000mah lipo is dead. The 10mm arms are very stiff and the rest is not damaged. I'll switch to the HQ MQ 8X4,5X3. Alt Tag

    Antenna upgrade
    Alt TagAlt Tag Today I received my mew costom made double quad vtx antenna from www.antennenfreund.de.
    It has 2.32 dbic gain and I love the performance and optic of his handmade antenna from Germany. With this antenna I reached my personal record of 8km.

    I couldn't get a good tune with 8" props so I switched back to Dalprop T7056C

    Changed the FC from radix to Matek F722se and the stock bearing to ceramic hybrid
    It's like day and night. zero vibration on punchouts

    final tune is done. Look at my settings the filter slider are at 1.5. I think it's amazing for a 8" quad. The ceramic hybrid bearings are running very smooth.

Stellar build! Thank you for the very detailed and complete post. I'm inspired.

Unknown FPV   Aug 26, 2020  

I read you had some problems with your props, if you wanna go back to bi-blades. Man the graupner I use are superb. Been flying on the same set for over half a year now, no problems and butter smooth. I did balance them them back in the day for optimal results.

Normally graupner was always my go to Prop but they are now bankrupt and it's not easy to get them . I don't want to tune my quad on props that are limited .

Unknown FPV   Aug 31, 2020 

I didnt know that, thank god I have got plenty of spares

I wish it was a joke... that's the max I can reach with my setups... I lose video but not controls
same range with different quads 500mw, 800mw an 2 watts
goggle side is rapidfire with TBS patch + triumph

okay something there is not right. you should have wayyy more range. do you know anyone who you could borrow goggles to test and see if it is your rapidfire module? make sure your vtx antenna is mounted up and away. the further from the quad, the better. and obviously if there are a ton of obstacles it wont go very far.

goggles are fine, among the best in my fpv group (analog)
I am trying to order a immersion rc power meter but it's always out of stock.
on the 2w setup i mounted the lipo bottom the antenna VTX is completely free.

the environment is not easy, its a valley with some building here and there and probably bouncing waves from the cells towers.
maybe the 5.8ghz is used for something else then fpv in my country on in this particular valley.

Absolutely gorgeous build! The attention to detial is superb. Bravo!

Beachconnor   Jul 27, 2020  

Awesome! how did you get a DJI mount and the left and right side antenna mounts? I dont see that option on their web page.

Enyo   Jul 27, 2020 

You have to contact their support .

Black Friday Sale at BetaFPV.com - Save 20% sitewide with coupon BFCM (Nov 27 - Dec 1) FPV has had quite a journey. Just a few years ago we started racing drones around a track and doing flips over trees, but professional cinematic FPV is a more recent development. DJI has always owned the drone photography market, but smaller acrobatic drones are starting to enter the market. They have the advantage..

For the longest time we've been limited to 3 to 4 minutes of flight and lots and lots of batteries. With more efficient motors and frame designs it's now possible to push the envelope much further. This guide will walk you through the process of building a micro long range quad capable of flying 8-30 minutes and more than 4km. The build is moderately difficult, but with the right tools and steady hands..
