Hi guys, well i decided to jump on board the Stealthwing train. Man these things look impressive. Almost indestructable, invaluble for me
But im not making it, Owen himself is making the bird, then im finishing off.
So whats going into this build
1x Gopro HD camera
1x Flight camera, going to be a Security camera 2000 OSD cam
1x Dragon OSD
1x Tunigy Plush 60 Amp ESC ( very FPV friendly )
1x Motor XYH35-42 1250kV 45a
10 x 6 Folding prop
After a lengthy chat with Owen, we came up with a tailored design so is exactly what i wanted. Big thanks to Owen for taking the time and offerring up loads of ideas
Features are going to be :
HD recording with no plane at all in the footage, tilt on the HD camera
Full OSD with GPS, Return To Home, Waypoints, Missions, Flight Stabilizer for rock steady HD recording
UHF Control for virtually unlimited range, well as far as the plane could carry it.
2x 5000 3S lipos, yes, 10 amps of on board power giving 1 hour of flight each time.
At 10A cruise speed of around 20-30mph and that should give a distance of 20 - 30 miles on a still day
Seperate flight camera for larger display with OSD seperate from Gopro. Because of some issues reported with the Gopro hooked up to the flight systems im avoiding this, it will be powered off its own battery and isolated from everything.
A moulded canopy will reduce drag even further for better efficiancy
Gopro chair fitted to house the camera and provide a tilt feature
Motor info : On a 3S lipo
10x6 Folding Prop
Thrust 1705 g
Efficiancy 70 %
So its already quite a way through so far, Owen has kindly sent me some pictures so here they are :
The paint schemes going to be fetching chevrons underneath with a white base and red / blue digital camoflage graphics on top
Should be a beast
Ok so Owen`s now received the goodies from me thats going into the wing so he`s began the install
First ups the Dragonlink receiver going in. The cool thing about the Dragonlink to Dragon OSD is really you could wire it with just one servo lead, that it, all your channels are carried in a full PPM stream down channel 9.
In my case im having a seperate power feed and RSSI monitoring so 3 more wires only needed :
Nice and neat under its cover :
Antenna to be placed inside a plastic tube to keep it ridged later on
Next up is the Vtx, this is going in the other wing keeping the two antennas as far away as possible from eack other. Same principle :
The motors now on and the ESC is getting positioned here with venting for better cooling :
Its really getting there now. I have the DOSD here, although im getting a replacement sent out but it should be here within a week fingers crossed
