Beginning a fresh AIMDROIX quad build. Starting with a proven EVO ONE frame kit sourced from the AIMDROIX user group (Thanks much to Chad2323). The plan is to build a +20min. per flight platform incorporating a FY-G3 3-axis (186grams = 6.56 oz.) gimbaling a Go Pro 3+ or 4. Of course it’ll be outfitted with all the necessary video, OSD, etc. equipment for ground station monitoring and mission planning.
Weight of this naked frame with stock DJI arms = 422.4g = 14.9 oz.
There is an understanding that every build is a balance of compromises.
That being said this build is looking for:
1 - Flight duration(+20min.)
2 - Smooth stable cinematic platform
3 - As much performance possible for chasing fast moving boats ( 20 - 30 mph ) in open water conditions.
4 - While at the same time having the ability to capture stable close-up shots for those oh, so sexy shots.
This is asking a bit much but after much study and conversation with EVO ONE owners this frame looks to be just the ticket.
What I hope to gain from this conversation and your experience with the EVO ONE:
1 - Motor, Prop, esc and battery combination to fill my needs.
2 - To gain knowledge of any mods, tweaks and tricks from those flying EVO ONE's.
3 - To build and fly a quad that can get the shots that everyone talks about.
4 - Most important… having loads of fun shooting gorgeous footage while flying a sick quad.
Please, any and all chime in.
