Post your build, ElectroGibit! I haven't seen a Split Mini Splitshark yet!

Alright,I just finished it last night so I gotta organize all the pics and write it up, will probably do it this weekend

Hey @lazd I ended up using a massive droner frame, but here ya go! https://rotorbuilds.com/build/10915

Are you able to put 14xx motors on this frame?

lazd   Jan 29, 2018 

No, it’s designed for 11XX motors. I can cut you a 1407 bottom plate though if you like.

linens   Jan 29, 2018 

Im still planning the build so Ill let you know if I go the 14xx route or not.

I decided to stick with 11xx pattern. Just placed my order for it!

@lazd The RS1106 thrust tests and guidance by EMAX indicate only the 4500Kv version is optimized for 3" props like RX3025. Is there a reason you went with the 6000Kv?

lazd   Jan 29, 2018 

They're totally fine, even with triblades. I get decent flight times and have plenty of power. I imagine you'd have even better flight times with 4500kV, so it's your choice!

Excited about this one! Would be really cool if you were able to design a tpu camera protector of some sort.

Any chance it’ll fig an Asgard, or will the input tab/pads run into that rear standoff? RX1404 spinning triblades on 4s might be pretty zippy :)

Hmm yeah I think the Asgard would hit the standoffs... I think the Zeus AIO is more than enough power for this rig, so there's really no need to go for a 30.5mm AIO, and with the softmount adapters or the suspension mount, it's easy to mount the Zeus on top of the Split.

I have been toying with ideas for a canopy and also designed more encompassing camera struts, but nothing has stuck yet. When it does, it'll be up on Thingiverse!

The iFlight XL5 V3 is a fantastic freestyle frame for the price. It features chamfered edges on some very nice quality carbon fiber. My goal for this build was to use high quality components at a relatively low price. Not only that, but I managed to reduce the number of solder points to the bare minimum. I've never built such a plug-in-play quad! The flight controller has an integrated VTX and doesn't..

Update! Happymodel has released a new V2 Frame which uses a more durable plastic. 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...
