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

it was pretty stable.

after getting bored of the Flight time of ten minutes.. converted it into a very rough built Y6 gaining 15 mins flight time from it.

 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


This altitude play Ended VERY badly (4 min 23 sec)

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
