Well, I've accumulated quite a bit of spare FPV stuff and thought I may as well put it to use in a new quad...
I bought the Turnigy Talon v2 which is a surprisingly solid and well built little quad. Unfortunately it lacks room for FPV equipment so needs modifications... I made small carbon fibre shelves and mounted all my electronics on them.
The GoPro is temporary since I fried my spare 600 TVL Sony Had II due to a servo connector I made being wrong... whoops... let that be a lesson - don't make stuff at 2 in the morning when you should be asleep. That is why the GoPro is now poorly situated where it can block the Video antenna, because when I was designing the layout the GoPro wasn't supposed to be there. I'm now waiting though for the Fatshark AirFLO HD which will be mine just as soon as it's released. HD recording, live video out, none of the issues of using a GoPro and a fraction of the weight.... it'll be under slung just beneath where the GoPro sits now.
Anyway, just did some quick test flying in the garden and all seems well. It zips around quite happily using a 5000mah 3s pack, even with the Gopro on there too. I do think I've over-propped though with the 10x4.7 - the motors and ESC's get a bit hot and it's impossible to get the gains quite right as it's either too loose or a bit bouncy... hovering is easily at half throttle or maybe slightly below, so I think I definitely need a less aggressive prop.
I'll be swapping out for either some 9x4.7 or some 10x3.8 when I get a chance... now I'm off to fly it in the park FPV! I have given it one of Sircana's beautiful antennas from the eurofighter just to test them out, hopefully I'll post some video later... I might have to get another one!
I'm also testing out mictronics EZUHF PPM to analog convertor for signal strength indications on the OSD pro... I would like one for the eurofighter but I don't currently have any channels to spare there!
