Another full Power distribution board designed just for the popular ZMR250 frame, the Simple PDB by OSO on RCGroups.
Finally I finished building the ZMR250 V2! It’s kind of a rebuild as I simply migrated most of my components from my old ZMR mini quad. However I am using some new FPVModel 2206 motors and DYS SN20A ESCs with this new frame. :-)
A few weeks ago we received a PDB from FlyingLemon, designed specifically for the ZMR250 Frame. This is by far the most sophisticated PDB I have seen for the ZMR mini quad, and I can see how much effort the developer has put into this project.
ZMR250 is probably the most popular mini quad frame, because of its affordable price and practical design. However it’s not the most trusted frame due to the variable quality, and the large amount of fake carbon fibre frames on the market.
Many mini quad frames come with built-in PDB (power distribution board) bottom plates, which saves quadcopter builders a lot of time and troubles. ESC’s, Battery connector, even your FPV system can be soldered directly on to the PDB, that keeps the use of wires to the minimal. This not only reduces weight but also makes a super clean build.
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
