Quanum XJ470 Folding Quadcopter: Build, Modifications & Flight Test

1478333661_hqdefault.jpg




This video is intended as an easy reference/reminder. Some screens may change too quickly to see all the detail so you might have to use ‘Pause’. You may also want to view our Flight test with the XJ470 + Tarot T-2D gimbal and a GoPro Hero3 camera: https://youtu.be/aL4Bn7X5fFw
Here’s the Menu:
00.12 – What’s in the box?; 00.50 – Hobbyking parts list & our modification list; 01.09 – All other components used in the build; 02.50 – Build Part 1: The Arms; 04.14 – Build Part 2: The body; 04.56 – Build Part 3: Attach the arms to the body, add the electronics & motors; 05.30 – Build Part 4: Modification: Mount for the ESC’s and the 12V UBEC; 06.11 – Adapting the motors; 06.52 – Build Part 5: Preparing the top plate and the gimbal mount; 07.51 – Build Part 6: Landing Gear; 08.52 – Build Part 7: Adding the Flight Controller, GPS/Compass, top plate etc.; 09.27 – Flight Test: Standard Arducopter ‘X’ quad’ parameters*.

Caution: The supplied carbon fibre rods for the gimbal are too short to fix a Tarot gimbal – they are 90mm long and you will need more than 105mm length of 10mm carbon tube…

Drone specification: Quanum XJ470 frame kit, X8R receiver for a Taranis Tx, Quanum 12V UBEC, RCTimer 5A/5V switching UBEC, RCTimer 40A HVSK OPTO ESC’s, HK annunciator, APM 2.6 Flight Controller (Arducopter v3.2.1), NEO 6 GPS & Compass, HXT60 power loom, folding compass mount, FC anti-vibration mount for flight controller, LiPo battery alarm/monitor, RCTimer HP2814-910kv brushless motors, LED light strips, Tarot 152mm battery trays, various bolts and spacers.
If you wish to buy a tuned and tested XJ470 please visit our website: www.RNDrones.com
*Please note that the flight test footage was conducted experimenting with a foam base for the APM 2.6 and allowed some vibration to get to the flight controller, hence the drone does drift up and down slightly. With the anti-vibration mount used – as shown in this video this problem has been solved. Bad weather means we did not video the final setup, however this will be shown in a later video when we test a Tarot gimbal + GoPro on the XJ470.

JJRC JJPro P200 Fpv Racer RTF Drone Quadricottero da corsa

1471434438_hqdefault.jpg




Acquistato da Gearbest: http://shrsl.com/?dj1e

Il JJPRO P200 mi è arrivato gia completamente assemblato e bindato alla Radio da 6 canali, per cui dovete solo montare le eliche, collegare la batteria e sarete pronti per volare e divertirvi
Le dimensioni del quadricottero sono di 17 x 17 x 9 cm e utilizza un batteria 3S da 1500mAh, il frame è molto robusto ed è fatto di Fibra di carbonio.
Monta la seguente elettronica: Motori RS2205 2300KV ESC Lightning 20A flashati BlHeli, scheda di controllo Skyline32 Acro (clone della famosa scheda Naze32) Camera CMOS 800TVL Trasmettiore 5.8G 40CH 600mW Antenna a “fungo” omnidirezionale, batteria Lipo 3S 11.1V 1500mAh. Provato stamattina alle 7.00 in mezzo ai campi queste sono li mie prime impressioni ???? Devo dire che anche lasciando la configurazione in default mi ha piacevolmente stupito, in quando senza doverlo trimmare è molto stabile in volo e i motori sono molto potenti.
Io lo provato con la batteria in dotazione da 3S 11.1V 1500mAh anche se volendo si può montare su una batteria da 14,8 V e renderlo ancora più cattivo e performante ma questo lo consiglio a chi e già più esperto.
Nella confezione e prensente il supporto per montare la GoPro o una action cam simile, per cui se l’avete fatelo e cosi potrete fare spettacolari riprese video.
La scheda di controllo skyline32 (clone Baze32) e dotata del barometro per cui è possibile attivare la modalita Air Press Altitude Hold che consente il mantenimento di quota.
Questo drone dispone di 3 modalità di volo:
Half Self-Stable Mode: modalita autolivellata che grazie al mantenimento di quota è perfetta per cgi è all’inzio o ha poca esperienza e perchi usa la cam per fare riprese video.
Self-Stable Mode: questa modalità vi consente di volare in matenendo il molto stabile ma che vi consente anche di fare acrobazie ed evoluzioni
Manuale Mode: questa modalita che implica le sottomodalita acrobatic mode e sportive mode e dedicata per i più esperti, non avrete il supporto del mantenimento di quota ma incompenso potete fare tutte le acrobazie, i fip e evoluzioni.
Sul JJRC JJPRO – P200 e già montato un piccolo buzzer sonoro che si sente molto forte cosi in caso di perdita di segnale video e di segnale riuscirete poi a trovarlo.
Hai dei led posteriori che a mio parere sono di bassa densita in quanto se provate ad andare un po lontano non li vedrete piu.

Quello che trovere all’interno della confezione.

+ 1 x JJRC P175 (with lipo 11,1V 3S 1300mAh LiPo with XT60 connector)
+ 1 x Transmitter (che utilizza 4xAA batterie non incluse)
+ 1 x Supporto Gopro camera
+ 1 x 5.8G Cloverleaf antenna Fungo
+ 1 x Strscia di Velcro
+ 1 x Spina per il Bind
+ 4 x Fascette
+ 1 x Caricabatterie
+ 4 x Eliche di ricambio (2 CW, 2 CCW)
+ 1 x Manuale delle istruzioni (English)

Dopo averlo visionato e testato posso dire che mi è piaciuto e quello che non mi è piacito.

PRO:
+ Ottimo modello, perfetto per gli appassionati di droni race da corsa e da FPV
+ Vola gia bene nella configurazione in Default
+ Frame in carbonio molto robusto
+ Resistenza al vento
+ Elettronica sopporta le lipo 4S 14,8 V
+ Motori RS2205 2300KV molto potenti
+ Skyline32 scheda di controllo completamente configurabile con Cleanflight.
+ esc Lightning 20A flashati BlHeli
+ Supporta Oneshot 125
+ Buonissima camera FPV
+ Buon segnale FPV
+ Buzzer sonoro
+ Failsafe impostato corretamente
+ Buona Radio 6 canali di serie compatibile con protocollo Futaba S-FHSS
+ Ottima autonomia di volo

CONTRO:
– I led posteriori a lunga distanza si vedono poco
– Purtroppo non ha un sistema di Telemetria
– La radio da 6 canali è buona ma se ci fosse stata una radio programmabile e uno schermo FPV 7 Pollici sarebbe stato molto meglio.

ZMR 250 Cheap and Fun Mini Quadcopter Build

1459904528_hqdefault.jpg




Here is the ZMR 250 ARF clone kit on Amazon: http://amzn.to/1RosnTU

Even though the description on Amazon says QAV 250 it’s actually the ZMR 250 design. In this video I cover some of the gotchas I ran into when doing this build.

All in all it was an easy build and for $113 (at the time of this video) it’s a great deal. It comes with CC3D, 4 2300kV emax motors and simon K ESCs.

How to build a X-mode Alien quadcopter drone – Not the FPV version yet

1455336731_hqdefault.jpg




Today I’ve build my first quadcopter. I’ve bought piece by piece and now all together brings me my new quadcopter as know as drone at this days.
This is not a how to build the cheapest drone tutorial but it´s not expensive too. I´ve lost a lot of time searching for all the parts and I think I’ve arrange a medium quadcopter for me, beginner on this hobby.

I’ve spend a total of 252.86€ with radio transmitter included and a 23€ taxes

The list and prices is this:
Frame X-mode ALien – 14,39 €
CC3D Flight Control + Power Distribution + Absorber – 14,13 €
4x HP Simonk 30A ESC – 24,92 €
4X EMAX MT2216 810KV + propellers – 56,15€ + 23€ customs taxes
Radiolink AT-9 – 97,27 €

It wasn’t cheap but it was not to expensive too. Hope that now I can increase my skills of this thing and after this, maybe I’ll build a race fpv one.
The video is on fast foward so you don’t sleep and at the end you can see how it stays all build. After I’ve build it, i went on a pc to setup the flight controller and I think I’ll get a nice video for showing how it’s handling in the sky. Hope don’t smash it on the first attempt to fly :)
Thanks for watching
