This week I am building a new 5″ quad that runs 6S LiPo. The goal of this build is to test new technologies of a few products, and new features in Betaflight. There are new 6S LiPo I will be testing on this build too.
In this tutorial I will show you how to build a racing drone (aka FPV mini quad) from scratch step by step. It walks you through what components you need, how to assemble the quadcopter, and configure the software for your first flight.
The Diatone GT-M200 frame incorporates carbon fibre and aluminium into the beautiful design, along with the 6mm arms it’s near “indestructible”! It also looks easy enough to build, so let’s find out how it performs in this review.
Tiny Whoop became very popular in recent months, so we jumped onto the hype train, and looked into how to build a Tiny Whoop Inductrix micro quad :)
I needed a frame to test BLHeli_S and the Hibernagen Menel X 5 looks like a good frame for the task. It has a minimalist design and very light weight. In this review/build log we will look into the goods and bads.
Here is a review of the the Airblade Assault 130mm – a brushless micro quad frame. We will also show you how we built the frame and how she flew.
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.
My buddy and I spent entire Saturday building our first quads, and they both fly like a dream! Building/configuring was 11 hours of pure fun!
Thank you folks for sharing knowledge, we really appreciate it!
Parts list of The Twin Quads:
- Frame: ZMR250
- Motors: DYS BE1806 Black Edition
- ESC: EMAX “Simon” 12A
- FC: CC3D clone
- Batteries: 1600 30C/60C + 1800 45C/90C
- TX/RX: FS-i6 + stock FS-iA6 (cheap and have failsafe in stock, and uhm… “telemetry”)
Don’t remember exact weight, but both were around 470g with 1800mah strapped on. No FPV, no camera yet. Runcam HD on the way
