hi guys, been flying and building for a good few years now.
i was out of the air for 2 years but now im back up and flying again, missed it alot, all of my previous builds were modded versions from bought frames,
i had a Hj H4 Folding carbon fibre Quadcopter frame from ebay and built ontop of that.
photo and specs
i sold up my gear after a while due to personal reasons
in the past 2 months ive now bought back into the hobby luckily buying
this H500 Folding carbon fibre Quadcopter complete built & test flown system from a friend for a very cheap price.
a fraction of what it retails for from
its a stable platform but i think i overloaded it with weight from fpv setup and gimble , it resulted in a crash on my last flight
whilst out flying the other afternoon , my h500 quad decided to go awal for no apparent reason , it switched itself to LAND , i had minimum stick input for roll pitch yaw, and had zero throttle control. using the telemetry link and mission planner i tried to get it out of LAND mode back to stab but no luck.it ended in a tree with broken arms, props, and landing gear,
so NOW ONTO THE REBUILD /UPGRADE ! >> more to follow after this post !
ok so onto the build,
here I have the damaged h500 frame from droneshop that crashed,
it currently has 810kv rc timer motors, spinning a 1245 prop , these motors are designed for 1045 , but for some reason my friend used 1245 and it handled fine,
as you can see I have the 13 inch carbons going on ,
the NEW arms that are going on are 33cm long .
compared to what is currently on in this photo (17cm)
as you can see the new layout is a hell of a lot bigger ,
measures in at 1000 size ,
or 850 if I trim the arms so the props only JUST fit without overhanging the frame
I don't want any overhang of the props/frame as I want it to be as efficient as possible.
oh look! heres the postie... brang me my new DJi E800s from buildYouOwnDrone
I purchased them separately not as the tune kit as I already have ESCs and I only need 4
