Battle H Virus Tutorial Introduction
I love quads that you can fly and that don't break when you land heavy like I do. While I was waiting for the Honey Badger to arrive on my doorstep over Christmas, being a DIY'er, I put together this little quad.
This frame is combination of Fleshpilot's H-Virus and Helliyea's Battle quad. Combining these two ideas I have come up with a quad that doesn't break all too easy, and yes I have tried. This is a 400 sized quad that can carry a gopro without the props in view. Another bonus is that most of the electronics are hidden within the quad. This prevents water, dirt and impact damage. It runs on 8 inch props but the same principles can be used to increase the size for different uses/props. I also made this much bigger (550 size) in testing and it worked well. It is completely symmetrical so it is pretty easy to tune.
The great thing about this quad is that getting the vibrations out isn't too hard. Here in this maiden I have chipped props from an earlier crash test and the picture looks pretty impressive. With new props and more effort into mounting the gopro it should become vibration free.
