    hello

    flat arm: 45 grams
    extended flat arm: 52 grams

    the focus is so that they NEVER break! I have only seen 2 arms break. Applem sunk his straight into the ground at full throttle and it snapped one arm.

    well, someone has to be a little different,


    I received my kit the other day, so I've been thinking about how to put it together.


    The ESC I have are the ZTW spiders 30 Amp, I've watch a few videos and read through many posts, and somehow everyone's been able to make everything fit in the Dirty plate area. I supposed could have forced everything to fit, but with my luck, right when i got it airborne the wires would short, and it would become a fireball streaking through the sky. not to worry, when it hits the ground, the arms would still be in-tacked.

    This is the progress on the build so far

    I moved the power distribution board to the top of the dirty plate, this allowed me to have a more "relaxed" fit for the ESC, sense this picture was taken I've reversed 2 of the motor lead.

    the motors I'm using are the sunnysky

    2216 KV1100

    ESC

    ZTW 30 amp OPTO with the simonK firmware


    flight controller

    well, I got one of those kk2.15's, it seemed to work, plugged it in, it lighted up ok, hooked a few servos and a radio on it, seemed like it was a bit too squirrely,

    update on the kk2:

    The firmware was a very early version, so updated to 1.9

    I'm in the process of making a CC3D FC. well see how that goes.

    one thing i like about the power distribution board,

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/5V-12V-Adjus...101148387?rd=1

    is the dual voltage BEC's, so far they seem to work, time will tell.

    Another update on my build,


    Flight controllers, finished building the CC3D, it worked ok, actually i was pretty happy with it from the software user interface aspect, and then the love affair ended when i had to make up the wiring harness with the connectors. So I got a flip32+, real happy with it, lot of function wasn't to sure about, baro, magnetometer, so i figured might as well get a ACRO Naze 32, which I'm currently using, pretty much work right out of the box, as far as the pid's go.


    I'm using 5.8 Ghz vtx, I had to make my own cloverleaf antenna, following IBCrazy's DIY, works very well, It seem those low cost 5.8 clovers leafs antennas had a high SWR when i check with a direction coupler.


    Everything turned out well, I've only broke 1 bobbin so far on a rough landing.
