Assassin 10" LR - 18m Hover

By tenten8401 on Jun 01, 2020

14  400  5

This is my 10" long range build, based on the Assassin 10" frame by Tyrdle. Main inspiration behind it was the dirt cheap AeroSky motors on eBay ($38 for 5).
It's extremely efficient and can hit 18ish minutes of hovering or slow waypoint flying on a 6s 1100 battery. A 4s 21700 4200mAh pack can get me around 35-40 minutes of forward decently fast flying. AUW with 1x 6s 1100mAh CNHL Black battery is around 870g, I may end up adding a second (+200g) depending on how this battery holds up to the amp draw of freestyling. Videos to come when my new VTX comes in (old rush tank original randomly died in-air).
Still working on tuning this build, it's running ArduPilot, but after adjusting flight controller placement AutoTune seems to function way better. I also need to get an Immortal T for the crossfire rx.

Hi, are those motors holding on 6S voltage??

tenten8401   Jun 03, 2020 

Seem to be fine so far, don't get hot or anything.. Air gap is pretty minimal and construction feels good. I haven't pushed it really hard though I'll let you know if something happens to the motors. They're so cheap though I'm not gonna be upset if one dies.

I really like this frame, where can I get one?

Ok, what is the white thing in the back? Is it a sheet of plastic? paper maybe? is it covering your drone's regestration number?

I had a sticky pad where the VTX was before it fried and just stuck a sticker on where it was to prevent it from getting dirty.. It's got a VTX there now

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..
