I love the look, it makes me want you to get gold motor nuts, and pink props (plz update pics if you do!!!!!!)

can you also fly it with 4s

Jayembee67   6 hours ago 

Oh yes, it will fly just fine with 4S, but it won't be quite as fast and as snappy as it would be with 5S.

Wow that is great !
I just sent this to news@fpvknowitall.com, it definitely qualifies as news worthy to me !

Little personal feedback : I am not a fan of variable angle camera because it leads to crashes, i would suggest a dual camera switcher instead https://viflydrone.com/products/vifly-fpv-camera-switcher

thanks for your positive reaction !

We put a lot of time, effort and also money in this development.
And we primary focused to search and rescue with FPV-quads.

You correctly remarked, (fixed)camera angle is key for acro-flying .
But for search and rescue, you want to look down to the ground.
If the grass is high, or you are searching in the wood, you need to look down 90°, and this is nearly impossible in acro mode, at least if you don't want to drain your battery fast ;-)

yes, you can do it with a camera switcher, but there is a big downside, that we found out, when testing:
When you fly forward and look straight down to the ground, and you find something, you have to stop, to keep it in view.
But when you stop, the pitch angle of the quad changes and your target gets out of view.
In the goggles it seems that your speeding up, instead of stopping.
When i first noticed this, i was completely confused. And it took a while, till i understood the reason.
So it was clear for us, we have to fix this problem, otherwise our local farmer and hunter will not be happy ;-)

So we decided to make a "automated" gimbal-function, that switches to a defined angle (e.g. 25°) when you flying acro, and when you switch to horizon/ angle mode, you can control the camera-angle by a "analog-channel" of the RC.
In this mode, the tilt of the quad is compensated automatically, so that when you come to a stop, the picture of the "target" will not jump forward, as described above.

I know, gimbals is weight, complexity, and another thing that break .. but with our "flexible joint" and the aluminum housing of the cam, it takes some beating without problem.

I just building up a Apex-3" with the IR-cam, gimbal, and Inav (for poshold) : sub250g ! .. so don't worry about space and weight. ;-)
Maybe the first sub250 IR- freestyle-quad, even with Way-point-mission (makes totally no sense with 5 minutes flight time, but just for fun, and for demonstrating the possibilities).

Hey,
Massive thanks for sharing this valuable information ! You guys surely deserve success and I will definitely be following your youtube channel, hopefully I can soon watch a successful real life rescue there.

All the best for what's next :)

Do you have any problems with oscillations at higher thrust?

nf4000   2 days ago

No problem with oscillations, its pretty smooth all around. When I was first testing with air mode disabled it would do a big yaw spin at the end of a high thrust/punch-out but enabling air mode fixed that.

I also built a 3 inch toothpick recently which flies fine on 2S but when I tried it on 3-4S, the drone flies straight up into the ceiling uncontrollable.

I built a HDZ ductless version and it's great! I would love to see what your PID tune looks like though :)

For some reason it's not letting me upload my picture too

I'm glad to hear that! you can message me in Instagram (@im_ricebowl). I'd love to see it and how she flies! actually the tune used in most of my videos so far is just using the UAVTech whoop preset > set master slider to 1.2 > increase P and D a bit. Will be doing a proper blackbox tune soon! just waiting for a new FC to come in

Yes, itsy is a interesting design, but too heavy to be efficient. I've tried 850, adds a minute but still too heavy. I got the lowest weight with with 1S v2. Hopefully they come out with 2 inch variety. flys great

I got an extra minute with the 450 LiHV and I have some 850 LiHV arriving later today, which I'm hoping bring flight times closer to 5 min.

I'd love to hear more about this build. Flight time, it's power, etc. Flight video would be great!

when you set up BF, did you use a quadopter profile, to start? How DID you get it to ignore the PID loop?

If I recall correctly I turned all pids to 0 or something in that fashion. I'd have to check but I just moved places so have it packed somewhere.

DVR looks shakier than what it should. Did you ever do the ESC upgrade and did that change something?

Guessing you're referring to the Mockup link? I'm going to wait for the Quadmula Djinn 25 to restock. I've seen the babymod 2.5 and it would be a good alternative to the "apex 2.5" but neither seemed to have enough room to mount a Freestyle V2 or O3. I will probably re-use a HDZero Whoop Lite but want the flexibility to mount something in the rear.

Check mine out. Just published it.

Nice, yeah originally I was going to do an AIO and the mod would be good if I had done that. Going with a stack, I feel I want to mount the VTX in the back. Looks good though. This is the current plan, with motors, stack, props, on the way, with a vtx and camera from an old build on standby. I'd just be waiting for the frame. https://rotorbuilds.com/build/32697

Jodie Froster commented on a Build, WIP: Carbon DJI FPV   8 days ago  

What a great project! I want you to make an aluminum and polycarbonate roll cage for the electronics! I wonder how hard it would be to convert it to run on hobby lipos, you could really change the performance characteristics. I wonder how it would respond to a motor change, I think you would end up wanting access to the pids if you changed too much. Is that possible?

Really nice build !
