hallo,
ich bin neu hier. würde gerne wissen wie sie ihren fc mit dem racerstar 50a metal verbunden haben?

FPVFrame.ch   10 hours ago 

Ganz normal wie es sich gehört - das beim ESC mitgelieferte Kabel an den Anschluss beim ESC (der ganz bescheiden Positioniert ist) und das andere Ende in richtiger Reihenfolge an den Flight Controller angelötet. Da die ESC keinen 5V Regler an Bord hat, braucht es eine entsprechende FC oder einen externen 5V reg.

Hey, did someone tried that build with 4s 1300mah ?
I got about 10 of these and i dont know if i should buy 850mah or stay with them .

Whiffles   2 days ago 

Yes, you can use 1300mah. It'll be a little heavier but I know many folks who use that type of pack on these.

That´s nice :)
Thank You for this build, i will give it a try.

Actually, for my sins, Brit in the US. But for some reason I remembered that Redheads were the Swan Vestas of Aus, so I assumed...

I understand the cabin fever... if it is any consolation, the high temp was ~20F here today, however I still went out and flew a couple packs as soon as I got home.
I gotta say... this one is making me want to put together a coax.

I love the look of those 3d printed arm parts! gotta go print me some now

FrostedFPV commented on a Build, Hyperlow 5" LR   1 day ago  

Wow this maybe the cleanest build I have seen when taking into account the size and all its features. Are you not running a gopro on it? or did you remove it to make it look cleaner.

fmcprogrmr   1 day ago 

Thanks! I love building almost more than flying lol. I used to have gopros on my quads. My flying style is pretty boring, no one was interested in watching my recordings. I just sold them and bought some quad parts.

Could it be converted to a DJI FPV build

lorenzo220580 commented on a Build, Marmotte 5" Custom   1 day ago  

nice build man.
how do you power the vtx?
I have the same configuration on my qwd. I'm using vbat and ground but vtx cut out the video when I make a roll/flip....

Is it possible to convert it to a DJI FPV build

Yes there is room to have a stack at the front and put the DJI Air Unit at the Back, Here are a few of my Sub 250g DJI Digital HD FPV Builds :- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s18gKTGMAu0&t=1s https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HxTaRwFuJIw&t=1s https://www.instagram.com/p/B50pY04nJAX/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-PYE6lmB8zE&t=18s

Thanks.

I am definitely looking to build a sub 250 gram, would they be powerful enough to carry a go pro session. I know it will incerase the weight but just wondering.

Sub 250g FPV   2 days ago 

A Go Pro Session would put you over 250g, I could add a GOPRO to my 4" but it wouldn't fly very well at all. You really need at least a 1408 motor to give you the extra power to carry one and still have your quad fly well.

kirkdis commented on a Build, DALRC DJI-F5 3 Inch HD   4 days ago  

what is the weight of the setup without battery? Looks nice so far.

Yes, trying to squeeze this tech into a 3" machine is asking for a bit much, to be honest... :-) I competely agree with your prediction, I absolutely expect the release of an Air Unit v2.0, and that it will be much smaller, hopefully a 30x30 footprint to better squeeze into more standard frames. And thank you,it came out nicely, and just today I set it up for RPM filtering, and that has made a lot of difference, it was flying so much better this morning. RPM filtering, unexpectedly impressive!

Well, THAT didn't take as long as I was expecting: http://www.multirotorguide.com/news/caddx-vista-vtx-for-dji-digital-fpv-system/ And DJI licensing this tech too? That's very interesting.

nice finding! but from a business point of view this is the next step how to collect the customers money. Thanks for sharing...

A couple of times I almost stepped on a snake in my basement. I screamed like a little girl (apologies to tough little girls that don't scream... talking little girls that scream 😱 like only they can). And those snakes were small garters, not venomous. It's not easy to find a venomous snake in PA. So obviously snakes are not OK!

How about 30mm ants and spiders bigger than tiny whoops , Oh yeah and wasps that hunt BIG spiders .

No, thank you! Is that why Australia is so sparsely populate? Not everyone survives?

bootbox commented on a Build, QAV-R 2   7 days ago  

Really nice, clean build! I'm about to build a QAV-R 2, considering the Tarsier. Have you been happy with it? Seems like a great way to save $300 not having to buy a GoPro. I don't have a YouTube channel so the video doesn't have to be awe inspiring lol, is it good enough though as an FPV cam/HD combo?

qwadkiller   2 days ago 

The Tarsier has been great. I only have it set to 1080P 60fps and the video is really impressive. My session is still better with colors and seems smoother in fast transitions, but not enought to justify the weight and how easily they get damaged. (I broke two so far)

bootbox   2 days ago 

Very cool, sounds perfect. I can't wait to get one on a quad.
