Realacc Purple 215 ( Gray Ghost Edition )

Silver is the New Purple.

Frame
This frame is not designed of a 4 in 1 setup, ( Enter at your on risk ) but I was able to shoe-horn the Raptor in anyway. I think the Asgard FC or something along those lines would be a better fit.....but I had to try anyway..

FPV cam
Anything larger than the Run-Cam Mini is gonna protrude past the housing. Maybe the Owl or Night-Wolf would work?

VTX
I went with the TBS U.P. and it is taped to the underside of the frame rails and holds the XM Plus snug against the FC.

Motors
I had initially planned to use 2300kv Cobra's, but only three of the four ordered arrived in time. I guess I'm lucky I had a set of BH T1's on hand.

Overall this was a challenging, but easy build and I'm looking forward to some better weather to get this rig in the air.

How has this been performing? I'm having some twitching issues with mine. I've soft mounted the FC and done everything I can on the software side of things to no avail. I just may soft mount my motors, but I've never had to do that before. This frame does seem to reverberate if you tap it, so I wonder if it's just a little too rigid?

You mean how did this become a mockup? Did you happen to unpublish it from the edit page?

UnderDawg   Mar 25, 2018 

No I did not unpublish it.. I cant even edit mockups.

Whiffles   Mar 25, 2018 

I sent you a PM. I'll get to the bottom of this.

Is your rear props the wrong way??

Ha ha ha !! yep.. good catch.

Sorry everyone! I'm not sure how this build became unpublished..

Love to see how well that runcam swift mini fits in there. It just bolts in in that position without any modification? Can you see the aluminum bars in the picture? Really nice build... can't wait to get mine.

UnderDawg   Dec 20, 2017 

I can't remember what, but I did modify with spacers on both sides of the cam. I also don't remember if the aluminum bars are in view either. ( It' hell getting old ) I'm going out tomorrow to fly and I'll bring the 215 along and get back to ya with an answer on that.

Looks awesome! Do you prefer this frame or the TransTec Frog? I can't decide which i want.

good luck with whichever one you choose and be sure to post your build when done.

Sorry, one more thing, what did you think of the power of this build? I'm unsure of whether to use the BH T1's, T2's or the BH R4's. Thanks for your swift replies btw, i appreciate it.

UnderDawg   Sep 21, 2017 

The BH T1's are more than adequate or my flying style, but keep in mind I bought these originally for a 4'' build and the price. I Think I paid $45.00 for 5 new. other than the 1407's I have no experience with the BH motors. Sorry I couldn't be of anymore help with your decision.

Looks fantastic! I'm building one of these this week using the AIO StarF3S. Where did you get the wire mesh?

Good deal! Should look great. I too will be doing a BG budget build using the same frame and motors, but I have three others to build first.

Whiffles   Aug 25, 2017 

I know how that feels. I've only got one build queued up and it's kinda refreshing knowing there isn't a next one quite yet.

I'll be slowing down soon to start readying my other quads (ATV's) for the cooler temps and some mud riding.

So clean. And the photography too, well done mate!

Thanks for the compliments..

Wow, this looks great! After seeing this, I feel like it was partly the purple colour that held me back from liking this frame. I think it just looks better like this. Great job!

Thanks! I wanted this frame to be a little different from the rest... I think I achieved it with the color change.

Really like the colorscheme of your quad! How did you get the aluminium parts of your frame silver?

Thanks!! I used a mild paint stripper and then neutralized it with a citrus-based cleaner.

Before giving this a thorough review I thought I'd do a teardown to see what makes the Taranis X-Lite tick. Without getting into too much detail the X-Lite is a new FPV transmitter designed to be compact and ergonomic. It's shaped like a video game controller but has all of the functionality of a traditional transmitter like the Taranis Q X7 or the Taranis X9D. It features OpenTX and supports most..

The Bannilite was a collaborative effort between Luke Bannister, AKA BanniUK and Falcon Multirotors. The Bannilite features ample camera protection, easy arm replacements and weighs in at only 72g. It even includes a spare arm and camera mount. It's an excellent choice for FPV racing and doesn't break the bank. The goal of this build was to feature a number of modern FPV luxuries including easy..
