I see a lot of updates to the frame, less diagonal bracing, more motor protection, more thiccness. What changes have you noticed, in flight, and in crashes? What is the weight difference?
Can't wait for pics of it built up!!

To be clear: These frames are by Trakusx https://www.thingiverse.com/tarkusx/designs. This is only about mixed printing using the example of the TKS/TKS Echo frame. I only made a remix of the TKS with diagonal struts for testing purposes because I had the problem that the frame broke very quickly in PLA or PETG. These diagonal struts improve durability but affect airflow. Keep that in mind.

have you tried the fpvcycle tune?

caffeine goat   2 days ago 

No, I decided against it. The Babytooth is at least 10g lighter so there's a solid chance that tune won't do me any good. I'll start with flyable D-gain numbers and tune P&I individually after that.

Just read some of your updates. Instead of using a throttle limit, try using motor output limiting. Where a throttle limit just limits your throttle range, motor output limiting is like turning down your kv and you therefore get more efficiency too because you'll be using less voltage. The equation is motor kv that you want divided by motor kv that you have and then multiply the quotient by 100. So in your case say you wanted 3950 kv you then divide that by 4600 (kv) and get about .85 multiplied by 100 = 85 so you'd set your motor output limit to 85%.

yesssss! Great to hear that it's working out for you! I'd heard that thing you mentioned about motor spin up too but couldn't remember how to explain it in the last comment. I really appreciate you giving me credit for the the suggestion too, I genuinely want to help people in this hobby but I feel like people generally feel challenged or something if I offer a suggestion. Also, just to make sure that i'm giving proper credit, this is the video that first put me on to motor output limiting, but it sounds like you may have found it already:

happy flying!

I am always open to suggestions and to try something new.
That is the exact video that I followed to setup my Motor Output Limits. It was simple and straight to the point. Most of the stuff can be done with the drop down menus but I think older versions of Betaflight you have to use CLI.

@Woopweep Wow! thanks for sharing!
I normally leave BF default and do the throttle curve in the transmitter so that full stick is just 70% of the throttle. So your suggestion is a better way to approach it? I always thought that maybe I should use 6s motors(I have 4s packs) to have more resolution on throttle for easier management of altitude.

hi to be careful with the crux3 canopy! it is very fragile special weight is over 40/50 gramm. Yes it is light 1.2g but very breakable like mirror:) I think later on you will change it. 3D print is more safety but 2-3-4 gramm.... I have own developed aloy canopy it is not beuty but same light 1.2g and more stable to use it and crush it :)

I'll send you a frame so you can build it yourself or I'll build you a complete quad.

I normally don't comment that often.
But this build really caught my attention to detail.
I really like the 90 degree usb-c adapter,the 3d printed protector around the 90 degree usb-c elbow,and the thumbcam/gps holder.
I think this build is pretty cool.

emsee commented on a Build, 75mm HDZero Whoop   6 days ago  

Hey SeeWell nice build, I just built a super similar 75mm but I had to use the Mobula7 v2 frame because the v4 couldn't fit both my BetaFPV AIO (which has a square ELRS antenna...) and HDZero whoop lite board, it was just too tall on the v2 ... never thought of mounting it below the frame like this! So happy I saw this build, I'm gonna switch it over to my v4 frame (even though its a bit heavier, it just feels better). It flies well, and is super light (only 1g more than my 65mm Mobula6 HDZero) but that v2 frame... ugh... its like silly putty.
Using 40mm biblades on mine right now, but yea, definitely thinking of swapping back to tri-blades (which I put on my 65mm M6, what a difference!!) .. I'm still using 19500kv motors though (and getting crazy times!!) did you try the lower KV 19k's on this build before settling for 25k?
Also, I noticed you used BT2.0 connectors, love how you made that 90 degree angle on the connector, clever... I use BT2.0 for my 65mm builds (with Tattu 300mAh BT2.0 batteries which you can actually buy) but the bigger 450mAh batteries only come from BetaFPV (hate their batteries) you swapped the connector on all your batteries from XT30 to BT2.0 yourself? Seems like a lot of work... I went GNB27 instead, at least you can buy those....

Fantastic research! Thank you for posting the method you have developed here, I can't wait to try it!

velasquezcoffey commented on a Build, Project 399 PRIG V2 - DIGITAL   6 days ago  

So which one do you prefer? The 2 or 2.5 inch?

Overall, I rather use the 2.5" because it is more versatile. The 2” is less powerful so it is better for indoor flight or low wind conditions. Where as the 2.5” with the 1604 motors has more power in reserve if needed and feels smoother. But if you really need to hit smaller gaps, the 2" is the way to go.

Just found you TPU's wish I had looked earlier as you solve the m8 gps, t-mount and make the video antenna fit better. Now I was wondering if you have thought of adapting these TPUs for the new DJI o3, as the action camera mount isnt really needed anymore, and we would need 2 video antennas
