EMAX NightHawk 250 Mini Quad by Neil – Group Build Log Contest Entry

This page is written by a group member who entered our build log contest. We are sharing the info hope it would be useful to someone.

Hi all – here’s my entry for the build contest log; my first 250 size racing quad! I’ve been watching videos of 250 FPV racing, rolling and flipping thinking that I really need to try this! I spent far too long looking at options and finally settled for the kit at 4 props. The value for money is fantastic, I was worried it was too cheap but the reviews for the frame have been good, it’s a solid piece of kit (so far!). I was considering 4S but 3S seems pretty zippy for a first 250 build, especially if you have a high C rating. An important part of the build for me was to make sure it looked tidy, so the ESCs are hidden underneath. I was also keen to try out a Naze32 and cleanflight as I had read good things.

Havard’s Duke Mini Hexacopter 330 build – Group Build Log Contest Entry

This page is written by a group member who entered our build log contest. We are sharing the info hope it would be useful to someone.

This is my “mini” hexacopter. I first made a small 250 quadcopter but it had no room for fpv etc.(cheap hobbyking frame) so I decided to just use the same motors and add two more for a slightly larger hexacopter. The hexacopter is my 2nd build. It’s super stable, super fast and fun to fly. I made it a month or two ago and all my footage is a bit old and I don’t have many pictures from building it.
